Diplomacy

It is not a happy continent these days. nearly everyone is at war. Prussia, which was forced to surrender to 3 Empires just a little over a year ago has been forced back into the war due to its treaties with Russia.

Prussia is in no condition for another war, but it has it. This was not anticipated by the Sultan-it was a bit of a surprise. It also was very unfortunate as the Russian campaign had gotten off to a very good start, but must be called off under these circumstances. The supply depots were going to be stretched as it was. With Prussia back in the war, the long line of depots would not be tenable.

Prussia is once again the target. It will be defeated, then Russia will face justice.
It will be interesting to see how the Czar helps out his partner in Berlin during this difficult time.

Treaty Report

Not only did Prussia have to issue a DoW on the O.E. and Austria, but also Great Britain-which happens to have its armies nearby Prussia. There must be anguish in Berlin. There is no doubt some celebration in the Kremlin.

Russian AO

As you can see-the initial movements and assaults went very well. St Petersburg was in reach. Its too bad that this splendid effort must end prematurely.

Siege reports

Even without proper battles, Russia is taking losses. As there was a 10,000 man loss in one city it is known that it was an infantry division and not a militia division that was destroyed.

The O.E. now has a 600 point lead over Great Britain-that is comforting to the Sultan.

Battle reports

It did not take long for the fighting to erupt in Austria-however, the Prussian effort has gotten off to a bad start.

King iron warrior has finally subdued the defenders of Gibraltar. It must have cost Spain more than 100,000 men.

Spanish manpower has had a slight drop. France, which had taken horrible losses in its first war with Spain has finally recovered.

Austria

Emperor Matto the Great had wisely kept one small army near Vienna. That was enough to defeat the Prussians. The Ottoman High Command did not anticipate this development so soon-and was caught off guard. However, it will not take the 1st Army long to regroup and prepare for battle. The 3 other Ottoman armies in Russian are in route to Prussia at this time.

The October 1811 turn is being played at this time. The game is moving along at a good pace-hopefully we can keep at it for another 45 turns.

Prussia/Austria AO

Three armies conducted rapid marches towards Prussia. A battle could happen next month. The 2nd Army is the only one of the three that is fit for a major battle. The 1st Army is a strategic reserve at this point. It also serves as a protective force for Vienna.

Political Reports

France has heavily subsidized the Ottoman Empire for some time now. It has more than repaid Ottoman subsidies given it in earlier times. It is also subsidizing multiple other Empires-France now has money to burn.

France is languishing 440 points behind Sweden. If Sweden is never forced to surrender to Great Britain, it is possible that France will finish in 4th place. Perhaps something can be done to accelerate the collapse of Sweden.

Prussian AO

The Egyptian Army, after a short and incomplete siege of Plotsk, is moving back to Masovia. The Carpathian Army, far to the south will speed march north. Divisions will be transfered into the Egyptian Army to bring it up to a true battle ready formation. This will create a third army for the final invasion of Prussia.

Battle Reports

The first large battle in some time occurred in Breslau. It appears that the Ottoman 2nd Army was instrumental in that Victory, but did not share in any glory or experience gained. That is fine-more battles will soon be had.

As in the siege report above, this action was in the month of August-reported in September.

Unit Count

This is the total Ottoman force. About half of the infantry count is actually militia.
There are two new merchant squadrons that will soon be entering service; one from Istanbul in February and another from Aydin in April. A total of 7 is allowed-those are all desired.

Note-the draft "target size" is actually 50% more than the amount shown. The "mass levy" (close) is not properly reflected in all draft figures.

Total Production

Roughly 70% of the Empire is undergoing some sort of improvement. This has an effect of dragging down production. Everything has been maintained at an adequate level.

Spice and luxuries are somewhat over produced, but for a reason. There is a large trade activity with spice and luxuries. For the Ottoman Empire to be able to have a double consumption of those items, current production must be high enough even after subtracting the traded amounts. The huge reserve will only be drawn upon to make up the difference of Minimal (1X) consumption and the shortage of requirements for 1X consumption.

France is still slowly gaining on Sweden-too slow it looks like.

Another dock improvement was completed. The main reason for the big push is not so much as to beef up the small Ottoman Navy (although it certainly is helping) but to gain the added benefit for trade going through those ports. Level 7 ports should reduce the amount of time it takes to build merchant fleets also. 5 more merchants can be ordered up-those take 8 months with a level 7 port.

The Navy has benefited from the increase in ports. Most ships have upgraded guns and hulls. There has also been a few good doctrines made available.

Army Upgrades

Scouting and supply upgrades were taken this month. With a quarterly "experience" increase of 135 points, the Ottoman Empire has surged forward in military excellence. A recent rough count of all European powers clearly shows the Empire with a very significant lead in military doctrines. It is still far behind Great Britain in the naval area, and somewhat behind France.

Provincial Improvements

During the past year investments have increased. There have been between 25 to 32 provinces improving in some area-each month. Time to completion varies considerably. Some may take 40 months-others 3.

The emphasis has been on culture. Generally, over half of new improvement starts have been for culture. There are still a few more barracks scheduled.

It has been a long term strategy not to build too much on border provinces. For a time there was the fear of loosing control of those provinces-temporary or not. That is no longer a concern, but there is a chance that I may sell off a province or two. Specifically; Venitia and Carniola (Trieste). Although booth those provinces are valuable for their docks and Venice has a rather large luxury and money production, I am not keen on keeping those in the Empire. However, those will not be let go unless there is some other new direction to expand-the Empire will not shrink (not planned anyway).

Prussian AO

It has been decided to move in for a decisive battle with the 1st Army. It has been ordered to move from Pressburg to Moravia. In November it will move into Prussia. It is anticipated that there will be a battle in Brandenburg no later than January, 1812.

The 2nd Army will slowly move north with "starve the city" orders-this leaves the option for Austria to take the province later-that is a possible option-sometimes the city falls anyway.

The Carpathian Army will speed march north to link with the Egyptian army in Masovia. A transfer of divisions will take place to build up the Egyptian Army for battle. The movement was planned earlier, but was overlooked when orders were issued.
I now have a former general as an oarsman on my vacation galley.

There is little consideration given to the likelihood of the Russian Army moving west in any threatening manner.

The Czar did send some smallish forces out of Moscow. I doubt he will venture very far west.

It an interesting lineup. France could likely pull into 3rd place in 3 years, but what about the British Kings? Will he be happy with 2nd place?

The Sultan is contemplating making the Blake Sea an Ottoman lake-this is entirely possible. However, GB has pumped in a huge amount of money into Georgia. There may be some negative ramifications to such a move. In view of the new merchant fleets activating soon, it may be best just to leave best alone.
