Trench counterattack

Tiaga Prime- Southern Front- Kitchner Offensive D-day- The long months of static warfare on the southern front had seen front lines repeatedly stormed on both sides.  The Stygians and Imperial both usually mounted immediate counterattacks to retake the lost line.  This however had become predictable.  So Marshal Kitchner had ordered his units to dig in amongst the first line and reinforce it while awaiting the counterattack.  When the Stygian counterattack began without artillery support due to it's suppression, the attack was cut to ribbons and the second line badly depleted of strength.  The Imperials then assaulted the vastly weakened second line and overran it.
