Battle Report: Battle of Velestino 1897 using BBB

Battle of Velestino 1897

Me and Morten  Kristein  Andersen from Denmark met up during his vacation in Istanbul for a game of Big Bloody Battles. We decided to play the Velestino 1897 scenario which I co-authored with Chris Pringle for Bloody Big Battles. This represents the one of two Greek victories at the Unlucky War of 1897. It starts as an Ottoman reconnaissance and develops to a full out attack on a defended position.
