Erzurum:

With the mountains to the north and south of the OE line decided to hold up here instead of giving up too much ground too fast and it allows a reserve garrison to recoup readiness. Lost Erzurum and it's SG as expected. There is a slight chance this army and the Gaza army could combine, that remains to be seen. Repaired Adana and Mosul. More Russian units are heading south to the soft underbelly of the Ottoman Empire..

Gaza:

Withdrawing as best as I can here, moved the Beirut reserve to Damascus to avoid being cut off. Repaired Tabuk and Beirut and others as much as possible. Barraged the English infantry to the north having almost no effect on it's strength, likely will have to disband the artillery for it's PP, for it's going to be of little use for an army on the run. Where is that blood thirsty Lawrence?

Poison Gas Event: My opponent has chosen to start using poison gas. Usually that affects alliances that have not DOW yet. Where he has used this weapon first it should bring Bulgaria closer to joining CP and it affects USA, Portugal and Romania to delay joining the Entente.

Baltic:

Sent the bulk of my submarine kriegsmarine to survey around Tallinn and Turku for the garrison that just embarked down by Koenigsberg. Gathered surface Kriegsmarine north of Koenigsberg for possible support of a Tallinn landing while others in port either repaired or updated. I am expecting this landing is going to be contested and I believe the Russians do not know what is in store for them for it seems the 4 English sub fleets I suspect are in ports being repaired for none had attacked this turn..

NOTE: Having problems posting here the last couple of days, presumably because of the Matrix server. Some SSs are only appearing as an attachment instead of an actual SS. If you cannot see a SS in it's entirety please me know so I can try to fix it from here.

Eastern Front:

OK, the main move here is lining up AH artillery to barrage Brest-Litovsk along with the German artillery next turn, in the meantime attacked the salient just north of there and counter-attacked a Russian general up by Koenigsberg. Pretty sure the Danzig zeppelin placed a hit on Kovno. Moved a fighter close to the artillery and placed a fresh fighter by Danzig. Most of CP's heavier units are in place for the next push. As far as I can see, the Russians cannot detect my movements. Would love to take the fort and remove any chance that the Russians would have to easily reinforced this center front from the queue or by rail..

Belgium:

The carnage still continues by Nancy while the rest of this front stays relatively quiet except for the air attack that almost wiped out an English air squadron near Paris. Placed 2 new fighter squadrons near Munich and Stuttgart. Not sure what I was doing with the German artillery, for it should have headed south, perhaps I had in mind to rail it from Innsbruck to Venice?

Italy:

Through a number of maneuvers was able to eliminate the Milan SG and nearly wiped-out the Italian artillery and 1 infantry by Venice. My objective here is to capture Milan and Florence cutting the rail-line to Rome. By capturing Milan CP should be able to hold of Entente reinforcements for quite awhile and give the offensive towards Rome a free hand. Yes the Italians are taking a beating, however they should be able to deploy enough units to delay CP advances. Once CP loses the initiative it's hard to regain once the defenders are able to fortify. Thank God for the German garrison at Toulon for holding up Entente reinforcements..!! AH pre-dreadnaught is doing a good job bombarding Taranto city eliminating production there. If Italy goes unchecked it can turn into a monster militarily in a relatively short time, plus it has fairly good techs when it enters the war has as much recruitment selections as any major powers at present.

Eastern Mediterranean: (before movement)

Using my AH sub radar can see that there is at least 2 if not 3 enemy surface fleets (one of them likely an English convoy) and I suspect there may also be enemy sub fleets present. Also during replay spied enemy fleets going north from the Adana region of Turkey (likely coming to the aid of the stranded English infantry at Izmir). So I have to make a decision: Do I want to gamble on a not so sure bet of success on an unknown fleets between Greece and Sicily? or, Help with the destruction of forces that could capture Izmir? I do not want to take a chance on weakening the main fleet at the Adriatic Strait, it would be foolish to give up such a good naval defensive position. Protecting Izmir to me seems to be the best option atm.

Eastern Mediterranean: (after movement)

First went with a sub on sub attack to the northwest of Izmir with some success, then moved a second sub to occupy the water hex next to the English infantry only to discover a second French sub fleet and went on the attack seeing how my fleets are in green dot hexes (do not recall the results), then sailed the german raider into Izmir port to pound the enemy infantry causes 3 or 4 losses there, followed up with an SG attack that nearly killed off the infantry. Where the other English infantry knows it has help on the way, likely will not take a chance attacking while isolated and move towards the coast. So set up a trap that may corner an Entente fleet in Izmir Bay. Finished repairing the OE fleet at Constantinople and way down by the bottom of this SS 1 of my AH subs discovers an Italian pre-dreadnaught, I forget if an attack was involved or not?

Black Sea:

OK, during replay a Russian balloon bombed Samsun from Crimea, so now I know for sure where that PITA is located> Should CP move both the AH and OE transports to Sevastopol and Kerch the balloon can move to either city blocking capture, also there may be a chance another Russian unit could be there too, totally ruining my original plan. Thought about sending the OE transport to Batumi, however it would have to land 1 hex away from that city instead of directly landing in the city, giving the Russians too much time to set up a counter measure to prevent capture. The Russian sub fleet by Constantinople can only travel 10 hexes, so decided to pick 2 widely separated points of amphibious attacks/landings: AH to Odessa (if that fails then try Sevastopol or return to Constantinople) while the OE transport goes to Rostov and just hope for the best . At the very least these 2 actions will divert Russians away from the Eastern Front and if successful will deprive Russia of 4 PP.

Erzurum:

Surprisingly! The Russians are having a hard time taking Mosul, holding up their southern progress and can see that help is on the way. Repaired at Adana and can see off the coast the Entente fleets heading towards Izmir. OE is still holding it's ground just to the west of Erzurum. OE's NM is at 63 which is OK, but it really starts to drop like a stone with the loss of more cities and units.

Damascus:

ZOC are slowing the withdrawal from this region, OE is going to try to go around the English infantry up by Beirut, artillery is pounding them there without much effectiveness. Repaired at Tabuk. It's not much fun running from the enemy, although it does slow their progress. This is the last SS for this long turn.

Italy:

The first attack was on the Italian infantry that ended up by Florence, it retreated after a German garrison assault, then retreated further after an AH cav assaulted it, amazingly the 4 strength infantry only lost 3 and survived.! As a result my cav was not connected to the rest of the line leaving it exposed to isolation, so flew in an AH fighter squadron to fill the gap, plus gave CP an excellent view of what lays ahead (5 LOS). Next finished off the Italian artillery with infantry capturing it's former position. This allowed a reserve infantry to surge ahead to flank the remaining Italian infantry with general. The second major attack here was to take out the Italian cav to the southeast of Milan for the French had already occupied that city. With help from air-power a strong infantry assault caused the cav to retreat, the retreating cav was finished off by an AH Garrison, this move cut the rail-line to Rome/Florence from French and English reinforcements. No doubt reinforcements would be arriving soon as a result of Toulon's recapture and elimination of my garrison there. Performed a minor attack on the Italian general in case it wanted to charge the garrison that is nearly surrounding it. Moved up German fighters and had room to RR German artillery to support this front. Deployed fresh AH garrisons by Trento and a fresh German fighter by Munich, also RR a AH garrison to near Zagreb. So far CP has only captured 1 Italian city with this huge offensive.. Did zep bomb Genoa from Stuttgart and Cetinje knocking down the Italian fighter some and robbing the Italians of some PP. No sign of Italian reinforcements yet, however I am sure they will be arriving next turn..

Just because CP is not attacking here much does not mean the French are not, certainly not the Entente air-power and the mess they are creating by Nancy. A German fighter upgraded by Stuttgart and others strafed French units. Not much else happening here..

Baltic:

The main fleet gathered around the troop transport facing Tallinn, I can't wait to see how the Russians react to this maneuver..!! Up north a merchant fleet has spawned and my subs there have made contact with the enemy chose to stay undetected. I'll let the enemy make the first move then counter-attack if necessary. You never know when your opponent might forget to attack and I am certainly not going to remind him or make it easy to respond. A German dreadnaught is on the way to the Finland Sea while an 8 strength sub fleet is heading for port to repair and upgrade.

Eastern Front:

CP is setting the stage to take Brest-Litovsk letting the German artillery pound the target this turn knocking the Russian garrison morale down to an 8, next turn both artillery and air-power will join in a combined arms attack that should overwhelm the defenders. In the meantime did harrying attacks on any Russian units that may try to move into the fort, even had the AH artillery pound the Russian garrison to the southeast of the fort. All the hexes on the Russian side of the fort are swamp hexes and are difficult to move through at all times, even for infantry types making it difficult to reinforce the fort. Flew a German fighter squadron closer to where the action will be repaired and upgraded. Made a mistake moving a AH garrison beyond the range of a AH general, now reversing direction. Upgraded and repaired a German sub fleet in Koenigsberg port , while deploying a fresh garrison in the city intending to troop transport it later. Can't help but feel confident about this front.

Eastern Mediterranean:

The trap worked..!! French and English pre-dreadnaughts are stuck in the clutches of the CP navy. OE is not entirely off the hook, for the larger English infantry is at full supply as well as the other infantry, but that should not last very long. An English cruiser seemed to be heading for Izmir so put a AH sub blocker in front it and attacked while another sub headed for home port to repair and upgrade.

Black Sea: Captured the Russian port of Odessa and Rostov city. From Rostov there is no returning to the sea, there are other nearby cities that could be within reach of the OE AC. At Odessa there are opportunities to go inland or sail out, here I was hoping the OE cruiser would provide full supply, but as you can see in the prior post that cruiser is best used at Izmir. No doubt that the Russians will do counter measures to recaptured these cities..

Damascus:

Disbanded the OE artillery in white circle for 2 reasons; one because it was near useless against the English, two OE is "broke" disbanding the artillery reduced upkeep cost and recouped about 18 PP, which was desperately needed to repair other units. Besides that continuing the slow march to Aleppo.

Baltic:

For some reason the Russians did not protect Tallinn, so right away disembarked into the city and captured the port. An English sub was forced to retreat out of the port to the east. Moved one of my German subs hoping to go on the attack and spied the Russian balloon stationed in Helsinki, I'm pretty sure I bombed it with my Danzig zep, if not this turn, it will get bombed next turn. Maneuvered the main fleet to prevent any enemy subs from getting in to the Helsinki port or from going west into the Baltic itself. For now the German garrison in Tallinn can only be at full supply is with a surface fleet. Up north the English sub fleets did go on the attack, so I counter attacked this turn. In hindsight I should of attacked last turn there, instead had hoped my opponent was going to make a mistake.. Down by Koenigsberg 3 new English sub fleets attacked my dreadnaught and sub fleet there, figured I'd counter-attack them to weaken them before they could go after the main fleet (hopefully my fleets survive and make it back to port).. WOW! That's a lot of English sub fleets for this region.! Have to be carful not falling into sub traps..

Belgium:

The grind continues here with small set up battles, what you don't see is the Entente airpower, it's only seen in replay and used in concentration on fixed positions. German fighters have reduced the French artillery to where it is less effective now and these fighters also work on the French infantry morale too. As long as the German reserves stay in good shape I should hold out here for quite a while.

Italy:

Was able to kill off the Italian general and supporting unit with the help of German artillery. Finished off what remained of the other Italian infantry then advanced to make contact with 3 sides of Florence, AH needs additional reserves to completely dominate this city for capture. The fighting has been non-stop the last 3 turns and it starting to show in many unit"s morale, it's a necessity to try and stay on the initiative before the enemy can fortify and counter attack with strength, so I kept on pushing this turn trying to knock out the French who are in worse shape than CP. Using air power to keep the English infantry from readiness to do battle. Some of my units are getting repaired or upgraded with AA like the garrison over at Zagreb before entering the battle. My immediate goal here is to secure the entire rail-line from Milan to Florence and hopefully those cities also, once that is done I'll just anchor the line there and proceed towards Rome with whatever units are left. I'm not going to go after Genoa and Turin, that's too much of a stretch, the money is in ROME..!!

Eastern Mediterranean:

Feeling good with the Izmir campaign, however the job is not done in spite of having sunk both the French and English pre-dreadnaughts cutting off supply to their infantry. While I was busy there I guess the Russians figured they could land a ground unit by Constantinople unnoticed, well they got caught and paid the price, will have to wait and see if the OE cruiser is able to finish the job. An Italian class I sub fleet got blown to bits after attacking the AH cruiser, guess he did not realize I had a AH class II sub there and sub killing balloon corp. Managed to 1 sub upgraded and repaired at Cattaro and another sub repaired at Izmir port while the German raider shelled the hapless English infantry. An OE AC deployed at Bursa intended to help the beleaguered Izmir SG. I may have said before: When pre-dreadnaughts and armored cruisers are sunk they cannot be replaced from the queue.
