The hindmost of Gen Sauret's rear guard must evade Gen Berwick's pursuing troops without suffering more then 20% losses.
The Initial Set-Up:
|The French forces are situated astride the stream, marching from right-to-left (East-to-West) as seen; the pursuing Anglo-Portuguese to the West and Southwest|
|The same scene as viewed from East to West|
This scenario was based on Scenario 07 from Scenarios for All Ages . The game lasted for 73 minutes, and the battle as a whole was very enjoyable. However, the Allies had 'won' according to the victory conditions on Turn 3. I'm not sure if this indicates a problem with the morale rules in Polemos General de Division or whether the scenario's victory conditions are, perhaps unconsciously, more suitable for rules based upon figure removal . I'm beginning to think that, in general, the Red Forces have marginally less difficult victory conditions than Blue in many of these scenarios!
