Two weeks into the Campaign, and we’re off to a dramatic start.
The Prussian Faction is lead by The Tax Collector.
The Austrian Faction is lead by Florian.
The Prussians invaded through Austria’s northeastern border, rapidly deploying troops into Provinz Oberschlesien and attempting to surround northern Bohemia.
The Austrian faction therefore moved its armies to the northern border, although they kept one in reserve for flexibility.
The 1st Battle of Oberschlesien set the stage for the rest of the war; initial Prussian domination of the field gave way to a staunch Austrian defence which allowed them to push the army back and maintain Austria’s defensive integrity.
Refusing to see his initial advance dissolve, Tax sent the Prussian 2nd Armee into southern Bohemia in the hopes of establishing a more favourable frontline.
Ill-prepared for such a sudden advance, the Austrian defenders took devastating losses and were routed, allowing the Prussians to consolidate their advance.
To the north, the battered Prussian 1st Army had been pushed out of Oberschlesien and into Niederschleisien, only to find that the Austrian Nordarmee had followed suit.
The battered Prussians were unable to withstand the Austrian onslaught, and Florian lead his men to inflict brutal losses on the Prussian 1st Army, losing very few men in the process.
With the northeastern front in dire straights and a fully manned Austrian army preparing to flank the Bohemian frontline, Tax Collector decided to rethink his approach.
Hoping to consolidate control over Bohemia, Tax brought his army to face the Austrian Saxon Army. Refusing to falter, he oversaw an Austrian defeat and prepared to move his armies forward once more.
As it stands, neither side can claim to be a clear winner.
Prussia has advanced deep into Austrian lands, however the Austrian defence has been resolute and the SudArmee stands ready to flank the Prussians and deconstruct their advance.
As the generals and tactitions of each faction ponder on their next move, one thing is clear-the war is far from over!
