Have you ever fancied a game that's not just a straight line-out but where the defender also has to cope with besieging a city behind his line? A game that features a full range of troops from elite cuirassiers and grenadiers right down to scythe-armed rabble? Maybe you'd like to throw an armed paddlesteamer into the mix, and a rocket battery, and a sortie by radical revolutionaries?

That sounds like a tall order to fill. Luckily, I have just the battle for you: Schwechat. This was the second major action of the Hungarian Revolution and War of Independence of 1848-1849, which we are currently fighting through as a complete campaign. Those of you rooting for societal order and rule by legitimate monarchs will be dismayed to learn that the rabble of rowdy radical revolutionary rebels gave the forces of reaction a bloody nose last Monday.

If you can bear to read more about this shocking affront to decent society, my AAR is now on the BBBBlog:
