Memorial Service

After a long night of bloody struggle, Berengar stood at attention before his troops, who were now fully dressed in their battle attire, with their musket's slung over their backs. Currently, the men that comprised of his army were holding a brief memorial service for the men who died the night before, between 100-200 men had perished in the ambush from the previous night, and while the enemy's forces were nearly annihilated by Berengar's army; Berengar felt nothing but sorrow for the lives of his fallen soldiers which were lost in the conflict.

Unlike most Generals, Berengar deeply cared for the lives of the men under his control and tried his best to mitigate losses. Every soldier lost meant that someone from his workforce would have to take their place, which decreased productivity. War was necessary for the expansion of a State, and thus benefiting the Nation that enforced their demands in the long term.
