The scenario leads us back to the year 782 A.D.. The Saxons rise again under their Duke Widukind. Frisian troops stand by him with military service to conquer the army of Karl dem Grossen. See the greatest defeat of the Franconians at the battle by the Süntelberg and then march through the Saxon marshland with the picked troops under Karl dem Grossen to crush the revolt of the Saxons. Be witness of the massacre in Verden, when Karl condems the Saxon nobility and lets execute 4500 noblemen. Conduct then Karl by his punitive expedition and find 3 relicts of the church which were stolen from monasteries as warloot during the Saxon plunderings...

I hope you'll enjoy playing this extensive scenario. It might be wise to save frequently. I like to advise against using cheats, the playing attraction would get lost.
I gave this game a low rated review because it did not run for me. I can now help people with a similar problem. My review was deleted, but at least my account was not deleted.
Since others apparently could run this scenario - I spent a total of "hours" figuring out why it did not run for me.
In the opening battle - if you get "creamed" you have to try again. If you play the battle well, the game hangs (no trigger to continue). To trigger the next phase of the game; delete your fighters one by one until the trigger is activated. Caution, do not delete skirmishers, these help make the next phase easier. Obviously, lots of people perform "as expected" in the opening battle, and the trigger is activated automatically.
