I've always wanted to write an AAR to practise my written english. Now I've found a game interesting enough to write an AAR of.
This is the Prussian grand campaign and I've already played for a few years. Everyone has seen the start so I thought I'd start the AAR now as the situation is a bit more unique.
This is my second campaign in any AGEOD game, the first one ended in my huge blunder of not wintering my troops.
I'm playing with the newest beta.
1758, Late September
The Bohemian Front
Leader: The King in Prussia
I really blundered here! I twice defeated the huge Austrian garrison army in Prag after they sortied out for 2 weeks, and then I pursued them, just to find out after a few turn later that the HRE and France had hidden an army somewhere, then marched on to Prag and managed to make a breach in only one turn. I should have scouted the area before trying anything. The Austrians lost around 20 thousand men in the sortie, so I thought that I could destroy them within a few months, as I had done to a Swedish stack near Berlin.
As the campaigning season soon ends, I'll probably just withdraw to Dresden and defeat a small Austrian siege force there.
I cannot defeat the huge allied army in Prag, as they have a huge numerical superiority of nearly 1000 power. I really lost a years worth of work here.
The Silesian Front
Leader: Kurt von Schwerin
This front has been really stable since 1756. I've held Troppau and the enemy usually attacks twice a year and loses a third of their forces. Last time they lost 18 thousand men. I'm moving in the cavalry corps for scouting purposes to see if I could attack.
The Pommern Front
Leader: James Keith
The massive Russian army is approaching, and I had to pull 30 thousand men from other fronts to sit in a fort for who knows how long. I hope the winter will be very harsh. General Keith is praying that he can defend Kolberg long enough.
Leader: August von Bevern
After the destruction of most Swedish troops by Prinz Wilhelm near Berlin. Bevern will react to any movements by the last Swedish army.
Leader: Prinz Wilhelm
The incompetent Prinz Wilhelm will give his command to the Marquiss of Granby of the British army. Then they will make a joint attack against the French sieging force in Hanover and save the city.
I hope I can destroy them before the winter to reinforce the Pommeranian front next year.
Leader: Ferdinand von Braunschweig
The western front has remained really calm. I cannot try any offensive moves because everyone, except Ferdinand himself, are incompetent fools, thus trying any moves would be disasterous.
Otherwise, I am content that nothing has really happened here. I don't want to lose any ground as Munster is easy to defend.
I'm not really worried about losing Kassel, as the AI probably forgot to add anything capable of making a breach to it's siege corps in Kassel.
I would appreciate any tips. The only problem I have is that I don't have enough men.
