The Brianites try to be bold in the east.
A cav xxx is left a little exposed in hex 1, and regular readers will know of my obsession with killing cavalry units. After some careful herding, started by sending armour behind it to ensure a retreat to hex 2, I move it to a place of safety where it will be safe from rescue. The secret is to make sure that the retreat path you want is into a hex with no enemy ZOC in. Ensures that is where the retreating unit goes, and greatly reduces the chances of the unit routing which would spoil everything.
Gil Favour would be proud of me . For those who don't know who he is, he was the trail boss in the long running TV western series 'Rawhide' about a cattle drive and which also starred a young Clint Eastwood. Was one of my favourite TV shows in my childhood , and still is over 50 years later: to the despair of the real Sillyflower. Oh well, I have never pretended to be a grown-up.
