Danzig 1807

Jolly good time had by all at Kriegs Hut game. I was sent, as I'd forgotten my camera, some piccies but all of the siege and not of the glorious French victory over the Russian relief forces! So, gentle ogler, you'll just have to imagine it....

Beautiful Danzig. Just off to the right my magnificent first move!

..and to the left of this you might have made out a staggeringly excellent infantry attack from my columns.

 Oh, and just behind this siege scene the tactical brilliance of my cavalry brigades right hook behind his infantry!..(not pictured)
 And the marvellous coup de grace of his artillery being slaughtered by my gallant cavalry...also not pictured
 How spectacular! How sublime! Yet, alas you can't see it, the glory, the cheers, the crisps!
 Needless to say..the French won again and my great victory was to be picked for the French team. You could say it was a frog gone conclusion.

All the same the Russian players did sterling work in an impossible (and I mean that sincerely folks!) position.

Auditions are now taking place for the next French victory.
