That is approximately what I thought had happened - a bad morale hit, resulting in disintegration. But, I read the roll as implying Turkey had taken the morale loss. Yes, I'm confused!
Russia's 5 Corps comprised four of Line Infantry (17 plus 2 organic Cavalry, 13, 10, 8 strength) and a Regular Cavalry Corp (strength 2). The flanking force was 1 Corp (10) and the Cavalry Corp (2). So the main force pinning the enemy was expected to be good enough. Did Turkey just get good die rolls?
Just to clarify, when the message states 'Turkey casualties : 19 infantry, 1 cavalry' it does mean Turkey lost that much and NOT Turkey inflicted that much? I seem to remember I had to remove 1 infantry and 1 cavalry point.
Also, would I have had an opportunity to withdraw due to my low morale, or would that actually have prevented a withdrawal?
I will continue my game, of course, despite this loss; it's instructive! And I have two good Corps, including a full strength Corp of Guards back in Moscow.
