Battle at Berlin - other images

One of the player for the Battle of Berlin I, has posted up an image album of his iPhone shots from the field.


  1. Looks like it was a desperate, grim and bloody affair...

  2. It was. The battle went to and fro especially at the east barricade. The French broke through early on, right into point blank canister range of two gun batteries.

    That allowed the defenders to retake the barricade, who got pushed off by the French, who got pushed off by.....

    well, you get the idea.

  3. The Gun is the end of glory and honour...

    It is a nasty habit of the Russians to build redoubts in unhandy places and, clearly, they were the key here. All good news for Swartzenburg (me) however, as he is herding the Monarchs along the way. It would have been a bad day to have had to break the news of ignominious defeat to both the Tsar and the KofP.
