For the naval bombardment of Petrograd, there are two possible 'fixes'. One is to just put the port back in Helsinki, which would provide the Russian Battleship with a port bonus that should (might?) extend right to the Neva estuary. The other is to put a port at Petrograd, although this would exclude any naval access and might be too drastic?
Anyway, regarding this AAR, once ulver has posted a few more details, I'll chime in with my side of things, including a bit of an explanation of my thinking/planning as to how to win this. (It's not over yet, by the way, I still have France, Italy and (in 1916) Britain to content with - and the the US once/if Rome is taken, so there is a long haul to go. But it is satisfying to have eliminated Serbia in 1914 and closed that front, and to have also effectively neutralized Russia before the first Christmas Truce!
