But it was getting worse and worse. Explosion of the one cannon destroyed them 10, and Germans killed many and many soldiers. Hamburg reached only 30.000 of 90.000 soldiers. Some drowned at swamps, some died from plagues. They besieged the city on 16.th July of 261. The Reformation of army in 224 caused, that the colour of the roman soldiers changed to Blue. Also, they were wearing blue clothes.

But Germans didn´t surrender. They were besieging them weeks, and nothing. Romans had many food, and Germans too. All cannonballs were shot, and Romans were filling cannons with swords, stones, helmets, and with heads of German captives, but that was didn´t very succesful. The storms and german winter weakened the romans a lot. They started to believe, that they won´t be able to defeat the Germans.

When they were sleeping, German army attacked. Many of the soldiers died. Only 6.000 remained. It was first massive defeat of Roman army. Romans at another war lines had much bigger armies, much stronger armies, and they easily conquered big part of Germania. But German winter stopped them for a two months. Romans at Hamburg were without possible reinforcements.

But that obelisk was a trap. It was filled by gunpowder, and a roman spy inside was ready to kindle it. The explosion was enormous.
