Evening, July 28th
Hector's troops (#1) reaches the Gleboff Monastery, and immediately get to work on looting it. Two sacks of supplies are added to the baggage train. However, Hector fears an immediate counter-attack, since the force that was repulsed on the road was mostly left intact, and must have warned any comrades nearby. So he orders his engineer team to craft some defensive works, if the monastery itself is attacked.
The untested force led by the Prince and his dragoons (#2) have read the spy's report that there were Russians further down the road this morning. They pursue them after a brief meal. As they move forward, they don't see a trace of Russians for several hours, until they hear something... is it a Summer thunder storm approaching in the distance? No, it can't be. It's cannon fire! From the direction of the monastery! The Prince immediately calls his men - forward! To Gleboff, and Glory! March towards the sound of the guns!
Meanwhile, the staunch carabiniers and the line companies that fought across the river crossing (#3) march towards the village Aleshki, where the spy had previously seen Russian looters. Can there be anything left to take? As they move towards the village, they see some men, looking like Cossacks, scurrying in the woods nearby? Are they independent scavangers, stragglers, or a screen for a larger Russian force? Captain Bernard Obelisque of the carabiniers orders the men to approach, but carefully. It could be a trap...
An explosive afternoon, with TWO battles to be fought!
