C439: Strategy Meeting
Sorry for the slow releases but here are chapters 4 and 5 for last week.
Information was received that Elysian forces had begun to move south and there was no escape route for the allied forces.
We had other choice but to intercept them at some point and a strategy meeting was held to discuss this.
The commander asked us to participate in the strategy meeting because his trust in us, the Iron Knights, had increased dramatically after the incident with the gladiatorial forces.
I wondered if it was a good idea to have a mere mercenary participate in such an important meeting, but we have our own way of fighting, and I thought it might be good to convey it at the strategy meeting, so I decided to participate.
I was worried about being alone, so I asked Emina, who knows the Elysian Army well and is familiar with basic tactics, to attend the meeting with me. She agreed, as if it were a given.
“Of course, I’ll be there. Yuta is the kind of person who shines in actual combat. I can’t imagine him playing an active role in a strategy meeting.”
I agreed, so I couldn’t argue with her.
The first item on the agenda at the strategy meeting was a place to intercept the Elysian Imperial Army on the battlefield. Since we were outnumbered, it was desirable to find a location where it would be easy for us to defend and hard for them to attack, and where we would have a geographical advantage.
A general from one of the national armies suggested the best location.
“It is better to establish a stronghold on the Dynamos Pass. To approach the pass, they will have to pass through a narrow and complicated canyon, which will leave the enemy with no choice but to spread out their forces. Furthermore, the difference in elevation will make it difficult for the enemy to see us, while we will have a full view of them.”
Everyone at the meeting agreed on this location. It seems to be a very geographically advantageous location. However, one concern was raised.
“But would the Elysian army be willing to invade a place such as this, where we have the advantage?”
I certainly think so. It was an advantageous position for all to see. It is a place of superiority by all accounts, something the Elysian army would have noticed immediately. However, an elite rider from the former Elysian Army answered that question.
“I don’t think you need to worry about that. There are two reasons. One is that there is too much difference in strength. With such a large difference in strength, the enemy will not be so concerned about geographical superiority. The other is the traditional policy of the Elysian Imperial Army.
The imperial army tries to show its power by using force, including political means. Every commander will try to overrun us with overwhelming force in accordance with tradition and policy, although there are individual differences among commanders.”
“I see…….but I heard that the current Western Area Commander is a recent newcomer to the Elysian Empire, is that correct?”
“A newcomer is now the commander of the Imperial Army’s regional forces?”
It seems unthinkable in the Elysian Empire that Emina knows, and she is truly surprised.
“The current commander of the Elysian Empire’s Western Area Army is one of the Ten Gods of War, the former commander-in-chief of the Magicraft Army of the Kingdom of Meltaria, a woman named Cruz.”
“Cruz of Meltaria!?”
My voice and Emina’s voice harmonize. I did know a Cruz from Meltaria, but I didn’t expect to hear her name mentioned here.
