Orm, any chance that you have a sudden urge to go goat herding in Nepal and have to abandon the game?

Nah. I plan to have a vacation in Paris with my honor guard but, unfortunately, there is a delay getting there due to a massive traffic jam.

Turn 13 - 10th December 1914

The lack of an undo can be really critical... I lose the French river line along the Seine/Yonne by miscalculating movement points... thats going to be expensive

The Serbs Army is officially like the Dodo...it is no more

The Turks are toying with the British in Egypt. An attack must come soon.

Turn 14 for Central Powers.

Assault versus Paris seems to be a costly affair so I try to maneuver towards Lyon. Unfortunately the French are to fast and create a defensive line. But since they are not entrenched I plan to break through during the winter.

Edit: My attacks on the British battleship was not going as well as expected and I expect that it will cost my navy dearly. But at least I am in port hexes.

Turn 14 - 24th December 1914

..and the above details the loss of the Yonne line where the Germans have created a bridgehead over the river (also see below after the Allies turn).

A German cruiser force is sunk in the Channel, but the battlefleet remains ominously in place......

In other news, the Turks surround the British Garrison in Izmalia

While AH units are no doubt winging their way to the Russian Front.

Turn 15 - 7th January 1915

As expected, the RN's Grand Fleet is destroyed

The Turks seize Cairo.

The AH close in on the Russian front line..although do not close up. Otherwise the Russian Front remains quiet.

If there is any more good news from Allied HQ I'll be sure to let you know as quickly as possible

Turn 16 - 21st January 1915

Satisfied with sinking the Grand Fleet, the German battlefleet exit the channel stage right....

Meanwhile a roving AH fleet sinks a British convoy.

In a rare victory for the French, a German unit is detroyed northwest of Dijon.

Turn 17 - 4th February 1915

Little to report other than it is more of the same.... The Russian Front remains quiet. I assume Orm will spring a surprise here...or maybe he is just waiting while the main effort is concentrated against the French and British.

Turn 18 - 18th February 1915

The French continue to fall back and still no action in Russia... meanwhile in the Channel and the Baltic, submarines hit convoys.

Here is a picture of Southern Russia

Turn 19 - 4th March 1915

More attacks on channel convoys by the Germans, but at least the troops manage to get to France - albeit under strength.

With no build points available, the French and British can do no more than retreat to shorten their lines.

A German cavalry appears, probing the right-wing of the Russian Army. He gets an artillery salvo in the kisser for his trouble, but is able to retreat.

Turn 21 - 1st April 1915 through to - Turn 25 - 27th May 1915

Game over! The French concede....

Turn 21 - In order to try and save Paris at all costs, the British pour shot and shell into the German army south of Paris. They evict the German, but the line is all over the place.

The German navy launch further convoy attacks in the Channel.

Turn 22 - The British sub in the Baltic chances his arm once too often and is sunk.

The Germans are obviously building for an offensive and there is no action in France or Russia.

Turn 23 - Sure enough, the offensive hits and the Allies are broken in a number of places...its the beginning of the end.

Turn 24 - Paris falls.

Turn 25 - The Allies have no choice but to attack to get Paris back and at the same time attack the entrenched positions of the AH in Russia. All attacks end in defeat...game over.



Well played Orm that was a brilliant performance - no mistakes from where I was sitting. You had me on the back foot almost from the start.

Thank you. I feel I had some luck in winning the sea war and that, I think, helped me a lot in the French campaign. I felt I just a couple of more turns on the offence before the Italians would arrive and create trouble.

Here is a picture of the west front at the end of turn 20.

And here is a picture of end of turn 23.

What I do not see is the French and British artillery that pulverize one infantry. But my reserves are strong enough to push the offence and capture Paris.

Orm, would you have been able to resist if Warspite had attacked Germany with Russia? It looks like you were really focusing on the west.

I am not sure.

Originally I planned for my main attack to be versus Russia. But when the Russian forces went on defense early and I had more success than I expected on the west front I shifted my focus. I slowly withdrew German units from the east front to the west. After Serbia was knocked out of the war I begun to send AH units to the East front. But since Russia did not launch an assault I decided to stay with 5 or 6 Infantry units close to the Italian border as a strategic reserve.

Unfortunately I messed up my screenshots on the East front. This is the only survivor. It shows end of turn 20. Other than the shown units I had 4 more German Garrisons surrounding Koningsberg. And also the 5 or 6 AH Infantry resting on the Italian border or in central AH.
