The Battles

Each battle in Great Pendragon Campaign is listed with the appropriate army to use. In many cases this is sufficient, but for the more complicated or longer battles, more details are given. For instance, for the Battle of Terrabil (513) three armies are given (Norgales, Malahaut and King Lot). All the great battles (Badon, Roman War, Camlann) get similar treatment.
