The battle of Komarow represents a meeting engagement between Russians and Austrians in Galicia, and I decide to take command of the Russian forces trying to exact a decisive victory out of a difficult and unpredictable scenario.
All my units are out of supplies, and it seems I have no supply sources available. Is this WAD or due to a bad porting from the TOAW 3 version? Well, anyway I decide to pull back behind rivers and wait for the Austrians.
The enemy is approaching, but also not. A lot of cavalry pushing ahead, and infantry sort of following but also shuffling around. I push back a couple of cavalry units.
The Austrians are advancing in a linear fashion against Tarnoghora with 8 Infantry Regiments and a Cavalry one. They have amassed themselves in the town, thightly packed: very convenient for my artillery, that gives them a beating. The XXV Korps will try to withstand their assaults while its reserve tries a flanking attack from the west.
More Austrian units have taken Ilowiec and are advancing against Grabowiec, where the XIX Korps is waiting. My lines are a bit stretched out there.
Further East, the Dragomirov Group has fought back the attempt of Gruppe Wittmann to cross the river at Werbkovice. Weak enemy units have taken Hrubieszow, but the V Korps isn't worried.
XVII Korps guards the eastern flank and I'm wondering if a flank attack against the enemy that is amassing south of Werbkovice can be attempted. There is however an enemy infantry force around Dolhobyczow, so I have to see what are their intentions first.
Other units of Dragomirov Group have taken Sokal, but enemy infantry is advancing so they pulled back.
The bulk of the Austrian troops has reached my lines. They are numerous. And of course in the decisive moment they get two turns in a row, so they manage to break through the gaps in my lines beating back my cavalry, albeit suffering sensible losses.
In my turn I have to scramble to close said gaps with my reserves. There is a huge enemy breakthrough south of Wojslawice, and at the enemy has smashed through my lines at Wojslawice and threatens to open a direct route to Chelm. Cavalry elements of the Don Cossacks are sent to try and slow down the enemy.
An enemy advance SE of Surchow is beaten back, as is the one SW of Teratyl. I also launch a counterattack west of Grabowiec, trying to threaten the flank of enemy 6th Korps.
In a swift counterattack, I isolate Gruppe Nagy near Hrubieszow, and try to eliminate it. Despite suffering devastating losses, the enemy doesn't surrender and hopes for salvation.
