The Battle of Sheikh Sa'ad 1916

Our traditional Xmas Game comes each year from the WW1 Campaign in Mesopotamia, we have fought our way up to the outskirts of Bagdad only to be besieged at Kut.

It's now time for the Tigris Corps to try their luck and see if they can break through the Turkish lines and save the Empire troops trapped to their North.

The first battle is at hastily prepared line of trenches close to Sheikh Sa'ad. This blog post covers the set up for the game, I'll follow up with an AAR shortly.

It's an old report mate, the AAR is on here somewhere under Sheikh Sa'ad The Action.
