The Battle of Gross Jägersdorf - When the Russians invaded East Prussia in 1757, they were an unknown quantity. Many, including Frederick, thought that they would prove to be no match for experienced troops from Central Europe. Early in the morning of August 30, General von Lehwaldt would put that to the test. Despite being outnumbered by well over 2-1, the Prussians attacked the Russians at Gross Jägersdorf. The Russians were not expecting an attack and were just starting their morning march when the Prussians appeared before them. By the end of the morning, Europe would know that the Russians were foes to be taken seriously. (Note: To reflect the surprise attack, most of the Russians start routed.)

A very interesting situation and it seems like the Russians are in trouble, but they recover.

Quite interesting map. The prussians must be pretty aggressive and lucky to succeed! (when playing for the Prussians, do not make my mistake - use prussian cavalry as much as possible).

This is an interesting situation but the Prussian side cannot win. They will be overwhelmed by the number of Russian units. This scenario needs the victory levels changed to give some chance for the Prussians to draw or win, and perhaps in combining many of the Russian units so that there are not so many.
