Short Note This is a short note

Count Tilly, commander of Ferdinand II's imperial armies, invades Saxony. He is able to do this, which would previously have been out of the capabilities of the imperial forces, because he now has the additional resource of 20 000 troops recently freed up by the end of the Mantuan War from their previous post in Italy.
