Overall strategy[edit]

Agricultural cultures tend to never be short of volunteers eager to go on military expeditions for additional booty to enrich their families, for adventures to see the world, or protect their loved ones and neighbours from barbarians. Nevertheless, regardless of what motivations they hold for service, Peasant Levy, while weak and difficult to muster can be used to swell your ranks. Nevertheless, however, Peasant Levy are still only rabble at heart, and meant to operate in a defensive role - heavy cavalry will easily rip them apart, as will arrows fired by horse archers! — but nevertheless, should forces be needed in a jiffy, you can do no wrong in calling them up to swell their ranks, even if only to give the enemy pause.
