[eia] cossacks

    I don't know about everyone else, but I had forgotten how cossacks work when they are by themselves.  So, as a public service, I figured I'd remind everyone (including myself). says that cossacks always get to retreat automatically unless the attacking force has a cavalry corps with them.  And then they still have a 2/3 chance of retreating.
    So the moral of the story is:  there's not much point in trying to hunt them down, because they will almost always get away from you.

 P.S.  I'm really sorry about the delay guys, but I've been putting in 15 hour days this last week and just havn't devoted the time to writing up my new orders.           
The cossack retreats to Vilna.  The siege will require a siege roll.
