East Prussia, 8th September 1914: By the 8th of September, the German 8.Armee was on a collision course for another climactic battle in East Prussia. Some 20 kilometers to the south of the main battlefield, the strategic crossroads of Lyck was being guarded by the partially formed Russian XXII.Army Corps that the Northwestern Front had rushed into the front line. The Russians intended to hold the crossroads as a link between the new 10th Army that was still forming, and Rennenkampf's 1st Army. However, the German 3.Reserve-Division was advancing along the periphery of the main force attacking near the Masurian Lakes, and it intended to seize the strategic crossroads at Lyck in order to provide flank security to its own army, and to push on north eastward if need be.[Size: small] *See the notes document for information on scenario design decisions and historical notes.

As the Germans, I attempted a flank attack on the left and built a bridge across the river on the right, but ran out of time before I could capture all the objectives. I think I should have concentrated my forces on the right instead.

As the CP, concentrate on the right flank and use your cavalry asset to extend the Russian line on both the right and left.

Small and balanced scenario, with on par opponents it will most likely end in a Draw. Most depends on how many German troops get disrupted or can recover.
