Sad news today from the frontier, Colonel Konrad Jaehde today was killed in action as his regiment gallantly defended a supply column. Colonel Jaehde was recently made the commandant of the first Grolstein regiment of infantry. This was the Regiment's first time in action and by all accounts performed heroically despite its colonel falling in the first volley. The Austrian column was being escorted through Grolstein territory and Regiment Jaehde was brigaded with a Hungarian unit that also performed well in the battle.
No word from the Grand Duchess as to who might replace the colonel.
Colonel Jaehde leads his regiment into action moments before he is felled by a Blieherzener volley.
Hungarian infantry defend the tail of the column, with the Grolsteiners rallying near the bridge (upper far right) after briefly faltering upon the death of their Colonel.
....buying time for the supply column's escape, Austrians and Hungarians resist the pursuing Prussian/Bleiherzen force with steady volleys...
