Battle of Brest

The moves: in th mid of July the imperials advance bringing illustration and plunder, while the russians manoevure to defendt the holy soil of their mother. In the north Mc  Donald is losing hundreds of men by starvation (6 bases) and awaits desperatly for the reliex to come in the form of Eugene's italian Corps, but the russians assault the city before they can join forces. In the center Bagration and Kutuzov give terrain to Napoleon and Murat, and in the south Tormassov piks the larger polish army in pliers with his kossaks. This was how the battle between Poniatowski and the southern russian army was fought, nar the city of brest (yes the same of the brest-Litovsk pact), game playey with Blackpowder rules.
at the sound of military band the duchy of  warshaw troops start to advance (Poniatowski can be seen on the top of the hill) onward sons of freedom!

Epic cherge, avoiding blunders and disorders a single veteran brigade clashes against the artillery battery, takes the cannons and continues forward taking the second battery (in the background) in an impressive showng of skill. Jescke Polska!
the poor battery fails their order test and are unable to turn in time to shoot the poles!

the euphory didin't last for long the cossacks, the hunters of the steppes appera suddently on the polish rear and cut to pieces a french mounted battery Davai!
passing by the sword also some voltigeurs thwir charge is only stopped with the counterattack of whole french cavalry

a general view of the battle, lots of shots and artillery fire, and also bad command rolls for the poleswhose units remin in the rearguard unable to contact with the enemy

the right flanc, lines of static fire a test of shooting and discipline
