The Battle of Hook's Farm (1)

A old time classic battle-first fought by HG Wells in "Little Wars", I was given the idea for  re fighting this battle when rereading a copy of Classic Wargames Journal and thought I  would let the armies of Treboria and Ferraro Rocca battle it out .

The forces per side were equal - 2 Infantry units ,1 Militia unit , 2 Cavalry units and 1 gun . The positions of the units were diced for , with Treboria taking the nearest table edge .

2 views of the battlefield with the initial troop dispositions , each gun has 10 rounds of ammunition (in the matchboxes) and the infantry has 10 rounds of ammo as well , cavalry have 8. The object of the game is to drive the enemy off the battlefield and hold the high ground around Hook's Farm. To be continued....
