The commanders of the Kingdom Army have been gathered at the operations meeting.
It was decided that the overall commander would be Lieutenant General Simon, so
he started to lay out the outline of the plan.
“We’ll go with this strategy. The independent force should already be in position
and working, so I’ll give them some time for their part.” Lieutenant General Simon
The surviving commanders of the Western and Southern armies can’t believe that
Simon isn’t trying to pressure the fortress at all.
“How long will that take?” Southern Commander
“In the previous battle, the sabotage happened right as we started our fight. If
you assume a proper fortress would take a while longer…
probably tomorrow or the day after. For now, make sure the soldiers get a
hot meal to increase morale.” Lieutenant General Simon
“Sounds good, the soldiers would be happy to eat something other than dried
meat while on the march.” Southern Commander
“Sir, but is that fine? Your independent force depends on a commander with
less than a year of experience?” Western Commander
“Truth be told, I’m referring to a man who became Second Lieutenant in that
short amount of time. Well, if he fails,
we can always fall back to the normal strategy, but that would end with a lot of
casualties on our part. Losing a day or two isn’t going to shift the assault
strategy one way or another.” Lieutenant General Simon
