The King of San Maurice has set a new standard of swift and decisive Gallic military action by sueing for peace with Ardoberg-Holstein after a brief and almost bloodless battle at the town of Cezanne. The garrison of that town, consisting of the first battalion of the Navarre Regiment and a gang of banditti who style themselves the Arquebusiers de Bergerac, found themselves confronted by the main Electoral army in the third week of the war. The garrison commander was preparing to withdraw when a courier arrived from the King ordering him to drive out the invaders (who outnumbered him 5 to 1). Reports that the King owed the Colonel a substantial sum of money due to an unlucky evening of gaming remain unsubstantiated at this time.
The Colonel dutifully took up a position in the town and endured the preparatory bombardment of the Electoral army. When honor had been satisfied (and before the Electoral infantry were sent in with the bayonet) a drummer emerged from the town and beat the Parley. After a brief interview the Elector and the Colonel agreed to avoid the unnecessary effusion of blood that would certainly attend the storming of the town, and the garrison was allowed to withdraw with the honors of war. As soon as news of the loss of Cezanne reached the King he sued for peace, setting a new land speed record for surrender. Reached for comment, the King said "When we went to war I didn't think he was going to invade me!"
While a lasting peace is to be hoped for, long time observers of affairs in this region of Europe are pretty sure it won't be long before San Maurice and Ardoberg-Holstein are back at daggers drawn.
