Looks like this aar is going to be over soon... bah anyway I'm doing this for fun not for victory.
Ok! so I lost all major battles in that turn and I lost a lot of men and equipment (see battle for Lille)
First of all the attack to relieve Lille was a total disaster...
I lost 71 canons... that's horrible... at least I've inflicted more casualties to our ennemies but a lot of my horses died in the battle. There's another very bad event...
Ney was late for the battle, so instead of supporting the army for the big battle he just threw his corps against a smaller British army relieving the Prussians for the siege of Lille. Even though his army was two times bigger than the British' one and that he had a very big cavalry against no British' cavalry he lost a crushing defeat! (remind me to hang him if I win the war)
So here's the situation after this horrible turn and my next moves and tactical questions:
1 - I'm retreating my entire centre and left armies to Amien to avoid any contact with the Prussian army (4) and to consolidate my forces.
2 - I still have approximatly 20000 troops in Lille but those can't do anything and 8000 of them are the garnison.
3 - The attack on Namur went as planned but it didn't ease the attacks on Lille as I expected, I now have a dillema? about what to do next, Assaulting Namur would not be wise since I suspect the Prussian army to be on it's way to relieve the siege and then my army would be exhausted to fight a even bigger army. So I got three choices. First: attack Lille to relieve the siege. Second: attack the disorganise(after the big battle at Lille) Prussian army. Third and last: continue the siege on Namur and get attacked in the back by the Prussian army (porbably). I made my choice: I'll attack the Prussian army with the right flank army (40 000 men 3000 cavalry and 80 canons) it will probably end in a defeat but we'll see.
4. THE problem, the Prussian army won't probably stand there, it got 4 choices, attack Lille, attack Napoleon, attack right flank army at Namur or attack the undefended right flank. In either ways I'm screwed...
Battles : Lille day-1 Prussian victory under von Bulow (I lost 71 canons)
Lille day-4 Crushing British victory against Ney
Total casualties: French: 49747 Allies: 43900
(pretty close actually I might have a chance)
VP: French : 80 Allies: 257
(maybe not after all...)
End of turn (4 remaining)
Edit: I'll take some resolutions all but the ones that give me National moral and the one that extand the campaign, I need replacements!
