A Command Assignment

"Brigadier Lothar Oppenkopf reporting as ordered, sir."

"Well, Oppenkopf, Koenig Ludwig has a task for you. He wants you to capture and secure the Stollenian Sawmill just inside their border. Furthermore you are not to damage the facility nor any of the wood stored there since His Majesty has need of it."

"Do you have any idea of what sort of defenses can I expect?"

"Defenses? Oppenkopf, it's just a sawmill; hardly a military stronghold. It should be a cakewalk, even for you."

. . . . And so begins the "Battle for the Sawmill" which Stokes and I will play by email starting in a few weeks after he and his lovely Grand Duchess Sonja return from their Mexican holiday. We will be using the basic "Charge!" rules, with Stokes setting everything up on his table . . . and I'm sure that there will be lots of wonderful photos of the battle.
