Congratulations on your victory.
Acronyms and euphemisms are the bane of newbies. For example, your post #4's list of abbreviations is great and highly informative, however, I struggled for over and hour trying to find TB using the game map, google maps, google, the manual, and search. I went back to the beginning of your aar to see if you had defined it somewhere previously but there is was, “TB” right from the beginning (Dec 11). I finally figured that it was just common knowledge among the old timers (which it probably is) and I would eventually figure it out. Finally someone else ask and bailed me out. (Sorry, can't remember who or find it right now.) Just thought I would let you and others know. Nit-picky I know, but we are all newbies at one time.
Thanks to Feurer Krieg, obvert and you for the answers above and thanks to all who contributed to your aar and thank you for your attitude allowing any and all discussions re the game. These discussions and comments are gold to me as a newbie. The where, who, what, etc I will eventually figure-out but, for now, the “why” can only come from the experience contributed through this and other aars.
Well on to more aars. *Sigh, so many and so little time.*
