Good game, Herk. I take it your hussar CO has been broken to the ranks and sent to the stables to shovel out stalls, where he may do something useful?

Thanks Dal! – That Hussar leader should be so lucky….!

Survived well all in all, want to do Palzig soon, don't expect the Prussians to do as wel.l

Yikes! – Tha Battle of Kay/Palzig is a tough one, indeed!

Good luck, and I hope you do better than the historical army did!

I do them with exact OOB but transferred to my Napoleonic armies with Napoleonic rules. Decided some time ago to start the 7YW battles in chronological order between the Prussians and Russians.

That must be a labour of love! – Roll on Kunersdorf!

Herky, love your AARs but you have the WORST luck. Maybe you should try a different command, Allies perhaps, or Austrians.
