- cfant: We talked about this a few turns back and the Central Powers felt that the Entente was on the 'road to victory', and with the scripts leaning to that after 1916 (USA joining) I would agree but its not a slam dunk. Germany controls the East and Western Fronts, while the Ottoman Empire will sue for peace very soon, releasing a fair number of troops... but all far from other combat zones.
December 30th 1916
- Shadow Front: Norway continues to see things the German way (52%).... UK care's not and the Grand fleet continues to sink ore boats. A poll of each nations willingness to conduct war is UK 84, Fr 62, It 87, Ru 52 / GE 55, AH 47, OE 13.... the turks are done, its is written in the sand.
- All Fronts: Its dead winter, and while there are trench raids little combat is conducted. Russia does lose one IC that advanced outside the trench's SW of Vilna. Most countrys reorgize units for the next summer. Italy saved enough to develop a Tank unit (6 months), France a new HQ (all countys need one but only Fr could afford it), Russia and Italy raise a new Serbian Volunteer corps. UK gets a new type of sonar (L2) and better shovels (TW L2).
