Encounter at Wendelshaus ....
At a small hamlet of Wendelshaus near Ziegenfeldt, a Saxe-Jarlsberg dragoon patrol falls back after running into a detachment of Wittenberg jagers ....
Wittenberg: General Waldebeck had marched his troops hard, left the main road and moved towards the centre of the Hoflandt aiming for Ziegenfeldt.
Saxe-Jarlsberg: Count Pottsendorf had secured Montberg and ensured supplies were brought up, this caused some delay; not finding the Wittenberg troops on the road to Marienstadt he had swung the army north.
A blog documenting the encounters between the armies of the imaginary nations of the Kingdom of Wittenberg and its neighbours (including the Kingdom of Monrovia and their allies). My inspiration being drawn from 'Charge or How to Play Wargames' by Young & Lawford and 'The Wargame' by Charles Grant.
I have a number of other period interests for wargaming (from ancients to WW2), these have their own blogs, see below.
