Recently we played a WW I game using GEGs 1914 Rules.

The Russians adopted a central approach and raced for the bridge, while the Germans refused their left, sent two Battalions in on their right and the rest of their force in the centre.

Both side used their cavalry to screen their infantry which was a successful tactic and later deployed their main cavalry from the appropriate Screening Unit.

Both sides flanking forces flank engaged and the Russians scored a minor victory, their cavalry pinning two German Battalions thus weakening their centre.

To the left and right of the town and bridges the Germans were successful in destroying several Russians Companies and pushing them to the brink of breaking while the Russians in the town picked off Germans enjoying the protection it offered.

The last turn began and the Germans gained the initiative, they fired along the line and the Uhlans charged inflicting many hits on the Russians but failing to destroy the single Company they required to break them. Then with the Russians in control of the turn they loosed volley after volley on the Germans and the casualties were sufficient to break their morale, the men clad in grey retired from the field!

A Russian victory!

German Uhlans Deploy and prepare to charge!

The two battalions on the German right were roughly handled by the Russian cavalry!
