Crimean War POW Battle 8
Played at Tom's house in early September 2023 using figures from his 25mm collection. Thanks again for the report.
This game had two objectives positioned diagonally away from each other, one on the British side of the table and one on the Russian. The British roll a one for the position of their line of communication leaving it only 6” from their right. The Russians roll a 20 leaving their line of communication only 24” from their left. So both lines of communisation were opposite each other at one end of the table. The British get the initiative and the Russians are forced to deploy their blinds on the table. They position their 1st Infantry Division with attached Schutzen (light infantry) in the fields on their far right. Their 2nd Division, C-in-C with two light and one heavy batteries are positioned to the left of the woods. The Cossacks are placed in the centre with the 3rd Infantry (3 battalions) plus one heavy and one Llght battery behind the hill and the Dragoons to their right.
