November 1761 – Winter won’t save the French
In November 1761, Montcalm does not try to resist James Murray move on Montréal. There is no battle and we are now two armies in Montréal. I suppose Loki100 used the opportunity to recover some strength, which is a good move since we are in November and I have only one unit of supply wagons in Montréal.
As you can see, Lord Howe and Roger, the “fast team”, are going to bring some supplies to Trois-Rivières and then back. With winter coming in, I will chow through my 4 units of supply (in Québec) much faster than before. The supply wagons are going to be heavily escorted, because the way is not safe : the French attacked Trois-Rivières from the irritating Saint Francis Fort :
This is a good move from Loki100, as he intercepted the forces just outside the structure that were going to the “hospital” but did not try to “assault” the structure (98% of my force were inside and did not engage). Finish off the wounded – how French of you Loki.
Still, this is irritating and now Loki has seen it is possible, he might as well try again. As long as Saint Francis stands, I will have to escort my convoy.
Finally, in the South, Guillaume Plantavit’s situation worsens due to the winter setting in.
I suppose those bateaux are going to try to pick him up, so my lake schooners will intercept them.
