It does. It is recovering cohesion.
The stack has some supply wagon, and is closed enough from a depot so that the supply spent to avoid being hit by winter are "recovered" on the same turn. The weather was probably fairly mild, while cold.
ah thats good ... well its good that I was interpreting the data correctly, can they trace a supply line over blocked passes then?
That Prussian force gained something like 150 strength points from recovering cohesion - and all that's happening to you is that you're losing a bunch of Saxons in Pirna (primarily through desertion). That doesn't strike me as the most auspicious start, but then Austria is in it for the long haul, right?
Well, if I understand the situation in the real war, the quick demise of the Saxons was a real shock as everyone thought they had a decent large army. With hindsight etc, I'd written them off from the start, I couldn't do anything to relieve them, so when I had the chance to use them in a battle it seemed a good way to cull some Prussians with units that were already lost.
thinking of Narwhal's game, if that sort of replicates then 1757 is going to be pretty tough, then French and Russian pressure may start to tell. So my fundamental goal is not to lose a large force, if I can keep Prag I'll be pretty content.
