Fury of the Lost One
Desian Grand Army
The Grand Army is not just a single army, but is the single organization which encompasses all of Desia’s military forces, with the exception of the Desian Navy. Technically it’s commander is the King, although the tradition is that actual tactics are decided by the leaders of individual units.
The actual Army is divided up into three independent armies, each usually positioned where threats to Desia are most likely to originate (there is no Army posted on the border with Halberbgedia due to the friendly relations with that nation).
- First Army of Desia: Based in Southern Desia, just a few miles away from the border with Malton. 5,000 combatants under General Krueger. It’s motto is “Our Lives for Theirs!” Participated in the Battle of the Three Bridges.
- Second Army of Desia: Based in Northern Desia, between the city proper and Antalya. 6,000 combatants under General Harrington. It’s motto is, simply, “For the Realm!” Was the sole Desian unit in the Second Defense of Antalya
- Third Army of Desia: Based in Western Desia, between the border and the Mabinog River. 5,000 combatants under General Theisman. Forced to fall back in the face of the Western Invasion, in violation of their motto to “Give No Ground!” Redeemed their honor by fighting in the Battle of the Three Bridges.
