Just realised that regardless of the die roll for the month of July the weather will be fair so will omit dice roll.

Dice roll in order:
1/ & 2/ Attrition for Anto-French, currently only affects Mameluke forces

Note this single set of dice affects all Anti-French units (not neutrals).
There is also no naval attrition as all fleets are in port, but if there were any at sea a separate single die roll would be required.

Leader Casualties, (occurs on a 12)

Dice rolls in order:
1/ & 2/ Murad Bey
17 11/8/2017 4:36:00 AM Turn 1 Allies Message Hi Jeff,

I have been reviewing your turn and found the following issues:

1/ Attack on Alexandria, you conducted on the wrong odds see journal reference 10. (Ignores pg 21 D.4 Sieges which does not make sense and seems to be the wrong way round.) Note there is no Davout in this scenario.
Hence 5+3=8 on 3:2 is L=0, S=1 so no loss for the Pro-French
2/ Note I had already rolled for the recovery of the French SP loss from round 1 see journal references 8 & 9 and it was successful.

Therefore only count the first roll for FR SP loss recovery which was successful.
Hence there are no FR SP losses this turn and I will adjust the map accordingly.

cheers Bindusri

9 11/6/2017 10:32:00 PM Turn 1 Allies Message 6+2=8 > 4 hence no lost FR SP.

I elect to continue the battle at 2:1 -1
ie will undertake another cavalry charge

Note also your transports cannot sit in the port of Alexandria but will need to sit on the coastal hex where Desaix and the rest of your army is.

Are you attacking Alexandria? You will need to resolve round 1 of this battle before proceeding to round 2 of the field battle in Cairo.
I will elect to remain in the city for the battle of Alexandria, allowing you to decide if you wish to assault it.

Message from Allies:
Hi Jeff,

The convention we normally play for land battles in city hexes in particular is whether the defender wants a field battle or wishes to withdraw into the city. You correctly guessed I wanted a field battle however missed that I would want to perform a cavalry charge since I have more cavalry, this will make the odds 2:1-1, which means the result of 7-1=6, L=1, S=1.

Now from D.5.b on page 21, I will roll for French casualties and will assume you take a FR Inf SP as your loss

Die roll in order:
1/ French Combat Casualty recovery, +2 for Napoleon, succeeds on modified 5 or more
