The Battle of Warburg - After the Battle of Corbach, the French continued with their offensive, aiming to take the depot at Kassel. In an attempt to break Ferdinand's Line of Communications, Broglie sent a column under de Muy to take crossings over the Diemel near Warburg. Ferdinand sent a force under Erbprinz Braunswchweig to secure the crossings. The Erbprinz chose to flank the French positions, attacking from the North. The battle would be won when the British Cavalry under Marquis Granby charged the French positions, "redeeming the shame of Minden."

nice medium sized action. The Brits must attack and do a lot of damage to win. and they have to attack uphill. Looks like a tough one for the French. I said it was slighgly pro-British--if the Brits simply hold the field it will be hard to get a major win-they have to inflcit heavy damage--so the fighint favors the Brits (do to morale) but the scenario is pretty well balanced..

Early fog makes situational awareness a challenge. The French need to give ground and play for time because they can't match the British quality.
