I've been meaning to start an AAR against the AI, so here it is.

After Myrddraal gave some advice about how to tackle Serbia, I started a new campaign.
I'm going all out with von Schlieffen's plan, although I've sacked von Moltke and taken personal command in the West, while the East falls under the temporary command of my wifes teddy bear, Field Marschall Erich von Kuddles.

I'm playing the campaign on balanced

Lets see how the game performs under some pressure:

The Serbian Enemy will now feel the wrath of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and starts a chain of events that will drag Europe into unimaginable horror.


Turn1:-

The Garrison in Budapest is promptly given third class railway tickets to Lemberg, whilst a Sebian Garrison is destroyed in the hex marked with an arrow. Standard opening move for AH methinks!!




The garrison at Temeschburg is ordered south west next to Belgrade.

I've ordered 3 Garrison Korps, and they will be available for deployment next turn.

Turn 2

The fleet closes off the Adriatic, while one AH Army swings round to the north of Belgrade. One newly built Garrison is deployed SW of Temeschburg. No attacks, and PP's are spent bringing up the damaged units to full strength.

The other two Garrisons are placed at Kracow and next to Lemburg.

With the Russian Empire expected to support its Serbian ally, I need those troops digging entrenchments asp.

The circled unit is an important placement in my opinion, to anchor the eastern flank in Galacia.
If nothing is done here early on, the Russians could exploit this dangerous gap.

Turn 3:

The German Army mobilises, and the Leige forts are blasted to rubble.

I put three Garrisons into production.

In the East, von Kuddles orders the German Army to the border.....a bold move I was'nt expecting!

Aircraft are sent to Danzig, to be transported to the Western front.

von Hindenburg attacks the Russian garrison unit and destroys it south of Tannenburg ( indictated by the arrow ).

I do not advance.




Garrisons are placed in Posen and Breslau, to stop any funny business.

In the West, Antwerp is bombarded and attacked, while the French covering force in Calais are mauled but repel my initial attack.

German U-Boats prowl around the Channel looking for troop transports.

In the south, the salient is supported and my cavalry get into position.
The garrison NE of Belgrade is hit, but its nothing my troops can't handle.

In the West, Antwerp falls. Thats one ally done for.

Calais is cut off and reduced to ruins but the French hang on...curse them!!
But it cannot be reinforced. Good.

The unit North of Verdun gets hit, but nothing that can't be handled.
There are now no strategic reserves left. All are committed to the Schlieffen plan. I need to get a unit into Strasbourg pronto.

The German Army continues its sweep into France.

Turn7:-

A regular Army unit takes up residence in Lemburg, making it safer.
The Russians continue their operation to take Lemburg, and severely maul another load of reserves, forcing them to retreat again. Ouch!

In the north, Prussia prepares for the onslaught.

My U-Boat hits a troop convoy, Calais falls, but the BEF has arrived, and as resistance stiffens, my advance continues but at a slower pace

My prevaricating in the West about heavy casualties costs me a stalled advance, but preparations are under way to crush part of the BEF East of Rouen.

I'm too wimpy about casualties....

Turn 9:-

The Russian Fleet meets with disaster in the Baltic, trying to sink my Swedish convoys.
The Russian Baltic Fleet is completely wiped out!!!

Stabilisation is the name of the game, although another Russian garrison is wiped out.
Got to keep them under pressure.

The Brits withdraw and put a fresh French Army in its place.
It nearly goes under, but just manages to hold the line under enormous German pressure.

Curse them!!

I've arrowed the Russian losses in the Baltic. That should help make the Russian people unhappy.

The French withdraw their battered army and the BEF Garrison is flung into the line.

Things must be desperate!!

So it looks like any flanking manoeuvre - either east of Belgrade a la Orm and Empire, or west around Cetinje a la Warspite, see the AH crush the Serbs within a few turns.
