The Battle of Hastenbeck - The Opening of the Seven Years War left the British in a difficult position. They'd called a number of Hanoverian troops to Britain to defend against a potential French invasion. Eventually they were able to send those units to Hanover to defend the Electorate as new British units were raised. Then they formed the Army of Observation under the Duke of Cumberland to defend the Electorate against the French. The delays in raising the Army allowed the French to cross the line of the Weser. Cumberland took a defensive position near Hastenbeck, and awaited the French assault.

This is NOT a fun scenario to play as the French. Most units have D morale and for every C morale unit there is an E morale unit. Also, it hard to accomplish anything when most of the units are detached and incapable of meleeing.
