Until I read the report I thought, "Oh dear - has he lost the old one, again?"

Arf, Arf!

Frederick is one of my favourite historical generals, I was rather miffed to be relegated to being a sub commander!

Call it 'Brand Loyalty' !

Yes, but a sub-commander to Fred the Great isn't your run-of-the-mill minion is he? I'd be quite happy as a Seydlitz - all those cuirassiers to point at the enemy.

I like Seydlitz, unfortunately I was given 1 regiment of Kuirassiers and 5 squadrons of Hussars to fight 2 Austrian cuirassier regiments and 2 dragoon regiments!

I think even the great Seydlitz would have balked at those odds!
