'Death' of the Tsarevich

'Death' of the Tsarevich: Mosul, April 1853 Boris reflected on the vagaries of his life. This ill-fated expedition had been his chance to rise through the ranks. Not only would the fall of Mosul have secured the flank of the main army in Anatolia but they were escorting Tsarevich Alexander. His ins...

Re: Heading for a clear bright sun

Very nice description of what actually happens during a PON siege assault, very immersive. I am eager to see you describe a large battle in this AAR, once you have one. Its going to be a while. Sensibly the Ottomans are not too keen on a direct confrontation and I return the favour when Perfidious ...

Kars, March 1853

Kars, 15-20 March, 1853 Lieutenant-General Muraviev was becoming very frustrated. At every staff meeting he had to listen to the comments ... in fact, the insults ... of his fellow officers. Their divisions were deployed to the west of the town, out in the snow, suffering from the cold and the bliz...

Re: question on MTSGs during assaults

Alright, quick question I couldn't find on the forums. So, say Grant is besieging a confederate corps under Pemberton in Vicksburg, while Joe Johnston and some other corps are in an adjacent region, say across big black river in between Vicksburg and Jackson. If Grant assaults Vicksburg, can Johnst...

I'll freely confess to less experience with CW2 than some of the earlier games, but yes I have seen failures.

Re: Newbie questions about combining stacks for combat, etc.

MTSG occurs after the battle has already begun, so there is no issue with a Corps stack choosing or being chosen as a target. The MTSG'ing Corps simply joins the battle already in progress. The only issue is how affective it will be in battle, considering its penalties for its leader being inactive...

Re: Newbie questions about combining stacks for combat, etc.

ok - I presume you are sure about that.

Well in that case you have the problem that if they arrive they are in a defensive stance and that will affect how they are chosen for the stack selection routines. Not a big deal but it will have a small influence on how they engage in the wider battle
