 Re: [eia] Re: French combat rolls, Battle of Rome

```The Portuguese garrison retired into the city, but the corps stayed out to
fight.  But your intel is way off.  My total forces in the battle are the
British I corps, Cavalry corps, and the Portugal corps, with 1 Gd, 3 Br. I,
4 Br. C, and 4 Port. I  This means a total of 12 factors at 3.6 morale.
Here come the rolls...

God Save the King !
