After many years of fighting the holy alliance finally managed to pushback the ottomans, finally culminating in the liberation of Belgrade on 6th September 1683.
Only a few days later Louis XIV declared war on the holy roman empire. Most troops were hastily rushed to the western theater of war, to defend Germany and the Spanish Netherlands.
Von Eisenhut’s mixed company of foot, well distinguished in the war so far, but badly bloodied in the storming of Belgrade, was sent to a small border fortress on the Donube, to watch out for any ottoman activity.
Unfortunately, a few weeks after arriving at the fortress, supplies stopped coming via the river. Von Eisenhut thus took his company down the meandering stream, promptly arriving at a village in open rebellion against the emperor.
After bringing the commoners back into the emperors embrace a much worse danger was uncovered. It seems like the ottomans are already gathering a new army to take the frontier city of Middar. Von Eisenhut ist now tasked by the local commander to slow down the ottoman advance, and thus allow the city guard to erect suitable defenses.
