Battle Ready

Although our recent battle with New York was lost we have a plan that is sure to win us this next battle. We have a lot of determination to win this battle. First all possible equipment and soldiers will be gathered. We will look all around and get as much equipment as we can. We will also check all around for soldiers ready for battle. The plan is to have a surprise attack on those we are against. If they are more surprised and more unprepared we have even more of an advantage. Before the battle begins we are going to send spies to get information and to get an idea of how the battlefield would be. This will better prepare us for the war. We are going to attack as soon a sunlight comes. This is because this will most likely catch them more by surprise. Some soldiers will be sent first. This will turn the attention of the soldiers of the other army onto the soldiers that came first. As the war starts more soldiers will start to come helping the soldiers that came first. Soldiers will continue to be transported by ship. All of the soldiers will stay in groups. Groups of soldiers will spread out all through the battle field but no soldiers will be all by themselves. Hopefully with this plan the war will go as quickly as possible. We also hope we will be able to find a lot more equipment and be able to gather more soldiers. If all goes exactly as planned we are sure to win this war. We will end in victory.
