As you recall, your army was marching to raise the siege of the town of Prebranac. You were intercepted by the Ottomans at the village of Prdusa Vela close to the Church of Saint Agetha  and defeated, but not conclusively. Heavy casualties were also inflicted on the enemy. Your battered but largely intact army has withdrawn half a days forced march from battlefield, strangely unmolested by the Ottomans, and has taken up position in front of the river Babina Guzica , a tributary of which runs beyond the villages of Grudnjak  and Gaçice  and close to the church of St Polycarp of Smyrna . It was not possible to retire across the river before the Ottomans arrived in hot(ish) pursuit, and to cross the river as soon as possible would have meant abandoning the baggage, camp followers and indeed many of your men to certain capture and enslavement. The Ottomans have already tried to capture your baggage, during yesterday’s battle, but were driven off. Your forces have worked through the night and early morning and have constructed some very rudimentary defences, which hopefully will assist in holding back the Ottoman tide. You must defeat the enemy quickly as the relief of Prebranac still remains a priority.
A good number of your units suffered heavy losses in the previous battle, some fleeing the field but then reforming as men returned to the colours. This has been reflected in their starting stamina and/or morale saves of some of your units. Your army has been reinforced by the camp guard and troops sent prior to yesterday's battle to drive off the Ottoman irregulars. All of your heavy guns were abandoned in the retreat.
You have been reinforced, outnumber the enemy but do not have your artillery train as it could not keep up with your pursuit. You have a new commander as the former Governor is under tent arrest until he can be dealt with more appropriately. Sadly the only bow-armed troops in your army fled during the previous engagement so it has proved difficult to find any bows or bowstrings to carry out the likely sentence). You must now crush the infidel army.
