The battle on Peipus Lake, also known as the "battle on ice", was one of the most important battles in the history of Russia. It took place on 5 April 1242. The army of Novogrod, led by Alexander Nevsky, defeated the combined armies of Teutonic Order and Livonian Order which were commanded by the prince-bishop of Dorpat, Herman I. The defeat of the Teutonic and Livonian Orders prevented them from their further expansion on the east. The battle was the triumph of the eastern tactics, with a use of the infantry and light cavalry against the western heavy cavalry. Can you do the same, or maybe you can lead knights of the both Orders to the victory and change the history of Russia?
