Reckoning Day

The day after the murder of the garrison of Grandson the vanguard of the federal army strikes against the vanguard of Burgundy. After a few skirmishes Charles gives his people the command to fall back and lure the Swiss down from the hills to the flat area, where it is easier for him to attack with his cavalry. At this moment, the main body of the Burgundian army arrives. The incoming soldiers only see the backward movement of their own vanguard and think, the Burgundian army was on the run from the Swiss. Almost simultaneously the shock force of the federal army arrives on the battlefield, which forces the whole Burgundian army to flee in panic.
Although there were only a few casualties on both sides on that day, the confederates were able to obtain mighty treasures in the camp of the Burgundians. Charles always surrounded himself with all kinds of jewelry and wallpaper to impress. On today's standards, the equivalent of the prey would have been worth several hundred million Euros ...

Charles:
Now the day has come
I am well prepared
Down with all this scum
No one shall be spared

Look now as they kneel
Begging from afar
They’re not worth to deal with
Let’s show them who we are

March formation!

Charles:
A hedgehog made of spikes
8000 in a square
Our knights bring in the fight
First blood is in the air

They’re standing on the hill
I need to lure them down
Try to break their will
And fight them till they’re gone

Pull back the vanguard!

Wielded halberds, rattling guns
Roaring horns and pounding drums
Grandson!

Narrator:
Now his fate is sealed
Both main armies arrive
To Burgundians it seems
That their army flees

They panic and they run
Trying to safe their lives
The duke has lost the battle
Before it has begun

Chase and kill them!

Wielded halberds, rattling guns
Roaring horns and pounding drums
Grandson!

A moment of confusion
Burgundians gone astray
Run cowards, run
Taste the reckoning way

A moment of confusion
Your treasure’s gone astray
Run cowards, run
This is the reckoning day

Charles:
I’ve never seen such cowardice
My soldiers ran away
They didn’t fight the enemy
And so we lost the day

You have won the battle
But you did not win the war
I will return I promise
This shame must be undone

I will strike back!

A moment of confusion
Burgundians gone astray
Run cowards, run
Taste the reckoning way

A moment of confusion
Your treasure’s gone astray
Run cowards, run
This is the reckoning day

The reckoning day
