I'm playing a campaign, War of Independence. The first mission, Tartar Wars I start out with a group of musketeers. I moved north a bit and another small group joined me, giving me 40 total. On my way to my objective I get swamped by hoards of enemy cavalry. After half a dozen tries i was able to get past them with 19 men left. I had to guard a friendly general and keep him from getting killed. Again, wave after wave of enemy cavalry swamp my men, and friendly allies, and kill the general or all my men. A dozen tries and I manage to keep him alive, with only two men left! He tells me to follow him to a safer place, enemy cavalry everywhere in large groups. Repeated tries and I finally get to safety. He gives me a small village to control and tells me to get ready for the next attack. Before I can even sort out my peasants and get them to work huge blobs of enemy cavalry swamp my positions, capture all the buildings and kill everyone. I can't play this, its just impossible. Is there a difficulty setting I'm missing?
