Surprisingly I was the attacker.
Not sure I got to take advantage of that with my deployment.
Again the Sassanids opted for Aggressive Deployment..
I felt weak on my right so decided on an immediate attack.
My elite light cavalry should have ridden down the skirmishers with ease.
Sadly they failed their Cohesion test badly, very badly.
End of the first turn.
Then I decided my CinC better charge. He came up short...
End of the second turn.
The Byzantines are carefully engaging the enemy elephants with bow fire.
End of the third turn.
Luckily I got the first move and my commander continued his charge.
It didn't do any good, except it now meant the massed enemy cavalry were stuck.
Different perspective on the end of the third turn.
The enemy elephants had also failed to charge home.
My CinC was able to clear the enemy infantry, but suffered heavy losses.
Then the enemy cavalry charged.
This time the Byzantines passed their cohesion test and hung on for another turn.
End of the fourth turn.
Sassanid losses are mounting.
At the start of the fifth turn my CinC succumbed to the weight of enemy horse and my opponent pleaded for an early night, so we called it quits.
