Axtorna Help.

How in the name of God do you win this battle, playing only on Normal (Sergeant Major General) and usually after 2 or 3 tries I can figure out something to do but not this time.

Think I figured it out, remain on the defensive and invite them to attack you, just got to 58% with a bit of luck should be able to get the 60%.

Hmm, well when testing it I won by attacking all out. (Mainly to avoid being shot to pieces by the massed Swedish artillery).

But there is usually more than one way of winning each scenario.

Avoid the rough ground.

Remained on the defensive a second time and won relatively easy, four battles further down the road now.

This is one addictive game I hope there is more in the pipeline?

I will ask again but I suppose there is no hope of a Grand campaign? It seems a shame not to have these tactical battles in some sort of strategic setting or context.
