Thanks for the clarification. I never said that Lichtenstein was any good or that the allied organization was permanent--just that it existed. So, part of the distinction was that Reserve Corps had to be long-lived as organizations [how long?] and the officers had to be/were a 'go-for-broke' commander of the sable arm--at least better than Lichtenstein. Gotcha.
And the Austrian staff was inferior period. Why take it out on the cavalry? The infantry and artillery had troubles massing too. . .. Is staff work/higher coordination of larger units the magic bullet?
Merry Christmas and a Terrific New Year.
