Battle on the Ice . The Battle of Lake Peipus was a battle between the Republic of Novgorod led by Prince Alexander Yaroslavich against the Livonian branch of the Teutonic Knights on April 5, 1242, at Lake Peipus. . The Battle of Lake Peipus was a battle between the Republic of Novgorod led by Prince Alexander Yaroslavich against the Livonian branch of the Teutonic Knights on April 5, 1242, at Lake Peipus. The crusader forces likely numbered somewhere in the area of 500 to 1000. Most of them were probably Chud (Estonian) levies. The Russian force in contrast numbered around 5,000 soldiers: Alexander and his brother Andrew's bodyguards (druzhina), who numbered around 1,000, plus the militia of Novgorod. The first scene set-up is suppose to be near the end of the battle when the fresh Novgorod cavalry enters in the fighting. This startles the Teutonic Knights' lines and they start retreating across the lake and many knights at this time fall through the ice. But Wikipedia says "According to contemporary Russian chronicles, after hours of hand-to-hand fighting, Alexander ordered the left and right wings of his archers to enter the battle. The knights by this time were exhausted from the constant fighting and struggling with the slippery surface of the frozen lake. The Crusaders started to retreat in disarray deeper onto the ice, and the appearance of the fresh Russian cavalry made them run for their lives. When the knights attempted to rally themselves at the far side of the lake the thin ice started to collapse, under the weight of their heavy armour, and many knights drowned." Oops! So I did a slightly different version. This happens when you don't read things thoroughly. Also, I suggest you listen to 'Battle on the Ice" by Sergey Prokofiev(Album: Alexander Nevsky). Really inspires me and is a excellent song to listen to when building battle MOCs or MOCs in general. Enjoy! Full gallery link.
