After 6 turns of the turnchat (19 July - here), Bismarck demanded Philosophy for peace. I stopped the turnchat at this point. Our troops were suffering badly. The plan had been that once we had kept of the Germans we would take revenge and attack Berlin. However, Bismarck brought up large numbers of horse archers, most of whom had 2 promotions. We had very few spears and suffered quite badly. The units I had hoped to attack with either were being attacked themselves or had to help other defenders. You can see from the screenshots that Bismarck is sending another formidable force. The question is: do we want peace, or will we continue the war? And following on from that, what is the way forward?
