Uncertainity remains

Seeing that our foes had not fired the expected salvos, we were growing curious like the legendary cat. There was a heated discussion amongst our staff whether to counter-attack or lie and wait. While we had gained an advantage on front #3, a counter-attack could prove costly, as our resources had run out. Towards night I could not bear the wait and ordered a cautious counter-attack. The hostile forces behaved unusually. At first they put up a strong fight and then retreated into inaccessible terrain. We stopped pursuing at the point, for even a victory could prove empty and costly. It is possible they are hiding something and have a plan to strike us unexpectedly. Today again we sent a reconnaisance force to probe their actions. They retreated quickly after a brief encounter. We have now decided to wait and watch though we are not certain of their ploys in battle.
