So it happened! Final UK League game is over. After tough battle Glenn took a victory and became By Fire and Sword UK league Champion. Full battle report will be posted later. Briefly I had Polubiniski force 13FSP, Glenn had European Ottomans force 12FSP. Scenario Take and hold. Glenn had tactical victory 6-3.
Big Congratulations to Glenn!!! Massive thank you to all who took part. We all knew that it would be hard to run this league because of distance to travel but we made it. Few games were not played but it is just life, you can’t help it.

Cheers,
Mattski.

Apologies to Mattski for any inaccuracies in my dramatised version of the battle! Many thanks for an excellent challenging game.

Action in Southern Lithuania
Not too much to see at this place, just a decent sized hill, and an isolated house. Other features in the area are not too significant. Prince Polubinski has been sent ahead of the Polish army, scouting the area and looking for a likely hill for the army artillery.
Raiding from the South, with exactly the same idea, came Ahmet Bey, leading his Ottoman force.
As the morning mist burned away the two forces found themselves lined up evenly, the hill which dominated the area was in the middle, equidistant between them. A prisoner was taken by the Turks, who was persuaded to tell all of the orders given to the Polish force.
Each side had the same idea in mind, secure the hill, withdraw if the rest of the enemy force arrived before their own.
The Polish force arrayed with armoured reiters on their left (West) flank, dragoons and Reiters in the centre facing the hill, winged hussars and Cossack style cavalry further right, and a last few Reiters on their Eastern flank.
The Ottoman force faced them with light cavalry on the Western flank, supported towards the centre by Sipahi. More Sipahi with lances opposed the hill itself, and Segban formed up in a large block near the single building. The Eastern flank of the Ottoman force was made up of more light cavalry, including lance armed Delis.
Initial shooting showed the superiority of the Polish weapons and troops. The Ottomans adopted their usual tactic, and lowered lances and spears at their opponents. On the Eastern flank the Delis rushed into a Polish unit, and smashed it in a wild fierce lance charge. Sweeping forward their luck changed, and a second Polish unit destroyed them in turn.
In the centre the Ottoman lancers crested the hill, to find a handful of Polish dragoons dismounting in front of them. Command delays meant that their charge was delayed, and many extra shooting casualties were taken. Polish reiters arrived, but not quickly enough to prevent the dragoons from being destroyed.
It was around this time that it became obvious that the Ottomans had been infiltrated by Dervish priests. Many of the soldiers were in an ecstatic trance, and had discarded their armour. Casualties were appalling, but the soldiers were so convinced of their passage to heaven that nothing would stop them!
The lancers fought on at the hill crest against the Reiters until the Sipahis had been destroyed.
On the western flank more Sipahis without lances fought the armoured reiters. Casualties mounted on each side. The Sipahis gave ground but were soon rallied by orders of the Bey. The reiters advanced away from the hill towards the Sipahis and re-engaged in battle. The Sipahis fought on in a vicious struggle against the reiters with heavy casualties each way, until the last few Sipahis turned and fled.
The Segban had a simple role up to this point, securing the Eastern approach to the hill. Polubinski ordered his Hussars forward to sweep away the few cavalry that supported the Segban, but mistaking their orders they ploughed into the front of the Segban. The Segban are poorly trained, and their powder was wet. The volley which should have crippled the Hussar charge was just a loud plop! The Hussars ripped the front rank off the Segban, who without the benefit of Dervish encouragement promptly fled!
The day had worn on well now, and Ahmed Bey was aware that his own Division was close behind him. He made a final struggle for the hill, his last two units of light cavalry sweeping through the Western approach and up the hill. Meanwhile his assistant Aga took his tiny personal bodyguard to hold the Eastern approach. The Polish force was still present in much greater strength, but was widely scattered, pursuing and hacking down the fleeing Ottoman units. Seeing the approaching Ottoman army, they withdrew as ordered, ending the battle. Ahmed Bey breathed a deep sigh of relief, as his resources were almost exhausted.
Polubinski skirmish force (special list) 13 FSP 29 RP vs Ottoman European skirmish force 12 FSP 37 RP
Result Ottomans 50-75% losses, holding all 6 objective points
Polish 10-25% losses. 1 point for own casualties, 2 points for Ottoman casualties. Score iconTUR 6;3 iconRON
