N AF is north Africa. They got ZERO manpower from there, though in many games they use them solely for manpower. This is our issue. With game mechanics they can control N Africa and draw all it's manpower from there.
I also disagree with GB getting alot of manpower from North America, Australia, or India in Europe in the NAPOLEONIC AGE. There were several units that were "American" (ie. from the "colonies" probably including Canada), but not many. None from Aus or India, though Welly did get his training there.
The majority of non-Brit contributions to the GB army came from Scotland and Ireland.
Umm, GB got a huge porportion of it manpower from NA, Aus, India right up until WWII so why is this not historical?
I think that it added complexity, yes, but it also fixed some issues, such as GB going to N AF for manpower and other things. Also, many people like "chrome" in games...
Like a lot of attempts to expand on and extend, and make more complex, a good game, EiH is a disaster. It does not make the game any more playable or realistic than EiA was, it just adds complexity. In the computer version it's possible that having the computer make the boring calculations and things may take that complexity away and make it a better game, but I would prefer to have just a vanilla EiA/1805 or 1792 scenario.
