evilseth123 I would personally rate this mission very easy if you follow the next few steps and use a technique called the Extended Single Bastion Defence. Yes it is similar to the Single Bastion technique but I came up with it before I saw the Single Bastion from the walkthrough. I did this with 70 archers, 10 crossbowman, 25/20 spearmen/pikemen, a bastion, a double width wall of the appropriate length, and some rolling log traps.

1) Ignore the economy all together; just let the peasants suffer, who cares about them..... NOTE: The only thing you need to worry about is getting shipments from your estates in before the final invasion starts
2)As soon as you get 62 stone build a bastion facing towards where the enemy will set up camp, place it right behind and in the middle of the two center marshes.
3)After the next wave of knights are killed send 70 archers and 10 crossbowman up into the bastion then block it off with one double wall piece
LISTEN to this next part or else this will not work.
4)Next you need to build a WALL, not a single tile that blocks the entrance to the bastion. The wall should extend all the way to the water on the left and no farther then two tiles past the bastion on the east.
5)On the wall put four rolling log traps facing towards the enemy's future positions, and one on the back side of it right next to the bastion.
6)Just wait for the waves of knights to come in and just take them out with the archers and crossbowman.
7)After that the siege should begin and the trebuchets will attempt to set up in there usual positions that are easily in range of your main wall with the gate and tower.
8)Manually target each of the trebuchets with all of your archers (crossbowman are usually out of range), when the siege engines are destroyed just let your archers and crossbowmen pick off whoever they like.
9)After everyone within their range is killed take your 20 spearmen/pikemen and march them out into the field to draw the more hesitant troops into the range of your archers. NOTE: Sometimes the AI will be stupid and set a some troops on patrol. Just attack these troops once and they will come out of patrol mode, then lead them into the range of your archers. 10)Once all the enemy units have been killed just take your remaininng spearmen/pikemen out to the remaining siege camp of the Hawk's/Bull's (depending on which one Lady Seren razed) and destroy it.
The Extended Single Bastion technique is the easiest way to finish this mission I lost 2 archers and 4 pikemen (it probably would have been more with spearmen) by the end of the mission I was beginning to believe it as a joke.
Thanks for reading I hope it works as well for you as it did for me if you decide to use it.
