And not likely to speed up, now that the combat calcs seem to be coming seriously into play.

NO PEEKING!!

That said, when thinking what I might have at for the next one.  Having just bathed in that battle for three days, and truly seen what it entailed, I'm less inclined...

Game Time Is: 0800, 16th October 1806!

And we're back!!

An incredible time spent at the battlefields and in the battle space.

I will say this much, I (and my wife) spent a lot of time surveying the ground between the battlefields and movement off-road in Thuringia would have been no joke.  The terrain around Erfurt particularly is brutal.

I can only agree with those historians who do not understand why Hohenlohe did not seek to resist the French at the passes...

I'm like that lunatic highlander in "Scotland Forever", grasping a passing bridle and being swept along by the joy of battle...

It's that or whiskey.
