"Despite earlier Greek victories, the arrival of reinforcements under Krateros gave Antipater's Makedonian army numerical superiority. Krannon was to prove the decisive battle of the Lamian War and would mark the end of Greek city state freedom from Macedonian hegemony. The battle opened with a cavalry fight - the Greeks hoped that the Thessalian horsemen would secure victory - but then Antipater ordered the phalanx forward and the Greeks fell back onto high ground. But, seeing the Greek infantry retreat, the cavalry fled the battlefield. (20 turns)"
