The next falling of Dezburg
11. 04. 1405
(Rules Obitis Equitis)
Southern border Grand Duchy of Lithuania.
There have passed some years after last ruin of Dezburg by unruly osmanli Turks. Sir Dez, perfectly understanding, that aggressors will not leave a city alone, has considerably strengthened it. The ditch has been dug out and filled by water. As the gate tower has been strengthened and the leaf bridge is established.

Fortification works have been practically finished. It was necessary to complete garrison with skilled soldiers. It sir Dez to make and was not in time. Apparently Turks had in a city not one observer. They have attacked just during acquisition of garrison and were well informed about all steps on lock strengthening (that will be visible on their preparation for storm).
So, not numerous garrison of Dezburg:

Image

The Teutonic Order, instead of the promised help, has sent only two knights with small retinue. The right wing of defence the sir the Dez ordered. Left it was entrusted to the sir Tonykid (to the Dez younger). Turks under a command of the artful Babirbey as have usually appeared suddenly. Scouts from distant outposts have been intercepted. And about approach of an enemy army defenders have learnt already from inhabitants of the nearest villages who have run together under protection of city walls and though have a little strengthened fortress garrison. As on protection of Dezburg there were monks a monastery of the St. Anthony.
The left wing, sir Tonykid:

Image

Sir Dez on the right wing of defence:

Image

General plan of arrangement of defenders:

Image

Once again not to substitute under arrows of the people, Dez has placed shooters in towers near loopholes where the risk of hit was much less, than on walls. Assault (garrison) and auxiliary (civil and monks) groups, have been divided into groups and have taken places near ladders and inputs in towers on a case of fast lifting on walls.
Babirbey attacked three groupings:

Image

The left flank a Turk:
Kesici Silahkarda Musellah (Janissaries), Zhirli Nefer (armoured Janissaries), Tatars, Kesici Silahkarda Musellah (Janissaries - bowmens).

Image

The centre:
Siege tower (the Serbian crossbowmens, armoured Janissaries, Janissaries), Solak (Guard Archers), Tatars, Azabs (Turkish infantry), Kesici Silahkarda Musellah (Janissaries - bowmens), Al Manjanik (Trebuchet), Havayi (Mortar) and a battering ram.

Image

The right flank:
2 units Kesici Silahkarda Musellah (Janissaries), Kesici Silahkarda Musellah (Janissaries - bowmens), Zhirli Nefer (armoured Janissaries), Serbian Vlastella (dismounted Serbian knights).

Image

Kind from a Turkish side:

Image

So, Turks have begun movement …

Image
Image

In the first Turn Tatars have rushed at once forward, trying to repeat the killing shooting which they have shown during last raid. But not here, was! Ditch presence has not allowed to shoot from a near distance, and the left wing of defence has met Tatars hailstones of arrows and bullets! Having had by critical losses, Tatars Fled! Worthy payment for «not sports» behaviour in last raids!

Image

On it the Fortune has begun a turn to courageous defenders of Dezburg!
The Tonykid has decided to check personally bombard shooting in a tower, … a bombard has broken off to hell!!!

Image

In the centre only three bowmens in the gate tower could fill up only one Tatar. Absence of shooters in the citadel centre will still be cast by bitter tears to defenders …

Image

On the right flank of defenders bombard and ballista have sent seven Janissaries on a next world.

Image

More ...
Turks continues to move forward.

Image
Image

In some places they manage to throw a ditch fascines. Though thus Turks sustain serious losses, but their quantity and firmness Janissaries allow Turks to move ahead obstinately in dense to walls.

Image
Image
Image

At defenders proceeds «allegro with fire»! In a tower of Tonykid at a shot has blown up handgunner!

Image

In a tower of Dez, … it is natural!!! The bombard blows up!

Image

Further …
Dez seeing, that the opponent is going to put ladders, with shout: All on walls!!! Jumps out from a tower on a wall. Has carried, that in this Turn we were activated the first and had time to prepare armies on walls for blocking of ladders, it was especially scary on the right wing of defence. If were not in time, Turks free would occupy all three sections of an extreme right segment of a wall. And though doors in a tower have been locked and blocked, all the same to beat out from there Turk of forces would not suffice.

Image
Image
Image
Image

On the basic directions of attack Turks managed to fill up a ditch and to approach in dense to walls. The battering ram has started to pull down a leaf bridge, and the infantry to put assault ladders. The delay has turned out with an assault tower, Turks could not throw in this Turn a ditch under a tower.

Image
Image
Image
Image

In the center of the second detachment of Tatars received pills and fled!

Image

The left wing attack the Turk on a wall successfully beats off. Over defence Tonykid personally supervises, blocking one of ladders.
That has appeared the big error! Having not the greatest protection of an armour, it is additional risk to lose the commander. Then, of course, ungrateful descendants and everyones «chroniclers» have fallen down all fault for such decision on the courageous Dez, but let it will be on their conscience …

Image
Image
Image

Turks continue to press on all front!

Image
Image
Image

In the centre Solaks could break on a wall. Simply enchanting hand-to-hand has begun! The cabin was entered by all new and new fighters. From defenders townspeople and monks were already connected, from the party a Turk on a wall for Sjlaks have got Azabs.

Image
Image
Image

On the right flank defenders managed to kill Lieutenant Serbian knights, after which they fled together!

Image
Image
Image

And here the Fortune has shown to defenders the first buttock! In the centre on a wall in unequal fight the most worthy sir Dez perishes! It blocked a Turkish ladder, but artful enemies have got on a wall with a side from the grasped section and … is valid, the sky was as that "not so favourably to Dez this day. Four attacks and three save - on cubes two «1» and five «2»! In general horror!!!

Image

Mass panic news of the death of the commander did not cause. But could not stand the "main hope" right-wing defenders, Teutonic knight, von Puchberg with his men, all upset and blocking the aisles in the right wing of the fortress.

Image

In the center near the gate tower continued bloody orgy, have been killed soldiers of the garrison, the battle joined the townspeople. And the Turks still climb and climb ...

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

On the right flank defenders failed to fully reset clambering Turks, but the situation was not as critical, the soldiers have been collected and are determined to fight to the end. The tower defenders were blocked and have closed all the doors.

Image
Image
Image

In the center of the last defenders killed by shots Serbian crossbowmen who shot them right out of the Siege tower.

Image

Desperate attack monks on disembarking from the tower Serbian crossbowmen, ended with the death of almost all the brave and the flight of the survivors. However, they were able to fill all the same one aggressor, but at the cost of six lives ... alas ...

Image

In the center of the Turks managed to break the ram drawbridge, and they came to the gate dense. Inverted vat of hot tar and the death of two of them, did not stop the "naked ass" Azab. They started to beat the ram directly to the city gates!

Image
Image

Left wing defenders kept desperately and hard. Even there was a hope that more will be able to reset the Turks from the walls, well, or bleed into street fighting, but ... it was not a day of Dezburg, alas ... died in an unequal battle glorious son of the city, the brave hero Tonikid. It was the second buttock Fortune ...

Image
Image
Image

This news greatly undermined the morale of the defenders of Duisburg. Even explosion of enemy mortars could not cheer them.

Image

Night caught fighting on their positions ...
A breakthrough in the center, not clear position on the flanks of the remaining defenders in the towers ... what the next day?

Image
Image
Image

Turks massacred 100 percent certainty that the city is doomed. The situation is certainly not enviable, but ... but knowing people gently let me suggest a positive outcome for the people of the Glorious city Dezburg! Message ambulance townspeople sent Grand Duke instilled desperate hope ...
The game lasted 4:00. Very delayed the beginning, and did not think that the time before the holiday. In general, the most intriguing, but I had to finish, everyone on the phones were already hanging home ... For good, for full decoupling did not have a stroke. Turks believe that the chances of no protection. We agreed that 10 - 15 percent repulsed the assault, still remained, though ...
The game was held in Kiev. 11/04/2015
