I'm having a hard time digesting the combat rules and I learn much faster if I just see something work. Is there a limited session report where both sides write down exactly what pieces moved where and what happened?

Bowen Simmon's response to a similar query (doesn't include the report you're after, but has some invaluable insights into the attack procedure)

Maybe??? There are some people commenting/correcting here,maybe it's a good start. And everything comes with pictures. You can maybe do something like that of your own and be sure that the people in this forum will help you out.

I recall that this is mostly maneuvering, though, and not actual step-by-step combat.

Yes, you're right. That's not an "actual step-by-step combat". Yet, I consider half of it is about attack. There're 8 paragraphs. The last 4 give a very brief introduction on the concepts of "attack threat", "feint", "leading unit", combat resolution and retreat losses.

I just hope that the example might give some insights, in whatever sense.

I'm sorry if I've posted some useless stuff.

It's not your fault if the example is useless. Or whatever the case may be.
