I have created a Youtube channel to post technical and strategy videos I produced for War in the East, based on version 1.12.04.

My aim is to help new comers to the game to get to grips with some basics, and also for older hands to pick up something they might have missed along the way.

Here is the link to it: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNzHoi2XFix7y73XO6WSmqA/videos

And here are the first 3 videos:

Ep. 1 - Presentation and references: https://youtu.be/QnR3cJqv-f8
Ep. 2 - The Commander's Report: https://youtu.be/mYDNXRUZ1m8
Ep. 3 - The Support Units Flow: https://youtu.be/vqtWY3KyDtE

I hope they will be useful and enjoyable to all who view them. Others will follow.

Comments are appreciated of course! :-)

Corps is pronounced like the word "core" in American. Is that the case everywhere else?

I noticed yesterday while looking at a WWII history conference. I don't know how it's pronounced elsewhere, it might be different. English is not my first language, I'm still learning! :-)

Anyway, thanks for the comment, I will correct that in future videos.

I don't know if British call Corps like corpse or like core so was out of curiosity too.

Some of the war footage I liked, was like crystal clear. But to me the music didnt fit. But that is just me and others may love it.

For the intro, at first I had chosen a song named "Russian Winter" by swiss band Krokus, but Youtube didn't like it and it bugged me even if I could still use it. What I choose instead is a very old band of mine, so the music is 100% my own and I like the fury in the guitar solo. I think it fits really well with the Stukas diving and the T-34's. But of course that is all a matter of taste, I have strong heavy metal roots as my avatar suggests.

The music in the end is an old Soviet WWII song that I like, it talks about tanks rumbling in the fields and dying young tank commanders with blood on their heads. So I think it relates.

But I know it won't be to everyones liking, and whatever I would have choosen would have been the same. Bottom line, I think the music represents me well. It's my channel after all.

The most important thing to me is the content, which I hope will help people as much as I was helped by material that those before me created, including your AARs :-)

Correct in what you said here. I am sure many will love the music and we will hear those voices coming shortly to voice their liking and support.

Good job, i'll definitely find this useful, especially the SU video. I'm not a min/max player, don't have the attention span or stamina or time to take 2+ hours on one turn so these will help me focus on important elements. In the future maybe a video on turn order, meaning how a turn is approached, the order of how things are done, things shall we say.

I liked the music, a bit of a metal head myself [80's style ] Didn't know Krokus was a swiss band.

Don't "stay awake all night" doing these videos, sorry couldn't resist.

Thanks and " up the irons"

Thanks guys, glad you enjoy :-)

@budd happy you liked the music. Your request is noted. I already have a few ideas that came to me from new players reading questions and also seeing problems with very basic things in AAR's. But your request is also a big question mark for many people. I think everyone has his own process for a turn, mine is loosely based on ideas from many players, and is not always the same. Some come from unpleasant experiences... I mean, "don't forget to repair your rails" should be on top of the list! lol! Anyway, I will try to round up the most important features.

Good project, had a look at some parts of the videos and well done on the explanation and visualisation! Added this to the library as 7.6, thanks to Telemecus for the hint.

@EwaldvonKleist

Really cool thanks, much appreciated!

That said, I may sound a bit weird when I speak english, as most french-canadians do, but the videos are definitely in english! So maybe not at the right place?

This is a a possible (and obvious) interpretation of the headline that I missed, sorry about that! Will make it 1.18 then and adopt the headline accordingly. Needless to say, your English is fine!
(I simply added "and videos" to the last category and did not think about the connection with "foreign language")

Sorry, I didn't see your answer which is weird. No problem of course and very appreciated. A pleasure to be in your "Alexandria" Library of WitE!

Thanks a lot sir!

Thanks a lot for your videos !!!
They are really nice (and useful).
I just discovered your WITE tracker. Another nice tool !
I have got some suggestions :
1 - As there are curves for the different OOBs, could it be possible to have the same curves with the losses ?
2 - Could it be possible to get the OOB "merged" into a single curve, in order to easily compare the OOBs of the different sides (Axis and Soviet Union) ?
That'all, and thanks again for your great work !

Thank you :-) Sorry, I missed your comment.
For the losses curves, it could probably be done, it depends on the data available, I would have to check but will put it on the check list and will do what I can when I get a chance :-)
For merging the OOB's of both sides, I know it could be done but it's not so easy sadly.

"Corps" in the military sense is originally a French word, and it is the same word they use to refer to the body of a person or animal (living or dead). The Napoleonic armies first used the word in the contemporary sense, of a military unit subordinate to an army that had all the different components of the ground forces. Napoleonic terminology got into American usage through the works of Jomini, a military theorist who had served on Napoleon's staff; the term was introduced in the US during our Civil War. Because the concept and term were adopted into English directly from French, the military sense has kept the French pronunciation, while we have added a final "e" and pronounced the word in the English style with all the consonants to refer to the body of a dead person (or animal).

Originally a Latin word, corpus a body, in French it is singular, the body.

Although the French Ballon Corps de Army existed before that, and so did Garde de Corps formations before Napoelon was born, https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=4ChFAAAAcAAJ&pg=PP130&lpg=PP130&dq=corps+de+gaurd+created&source=bl&ots=lYi8cl0FIw&sig=ACfU3U0LXaFs1oshxGcd8lv-FmKDfFQEXA&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwj926qP-tbpAhXeQEEAHWlFBzQQ6AEwGHoECBEQAQ#v=onepage&q=corps%20de%20gaurd%20created&f=false

US Corps and Eng and US Marine Corps existed before the WBTS, both created before Jomni was born.

USA went to war with Mexico using a Corps system, see https://history.army.mil/html/books/073/73-3/CMH_Pub_73-3.pdf

beware of thinking what you read on wiki is accurate.

Congrats on a very helpful channel for new comers to the game!.

By law youtube has to run a software check for copyright infringement, and block access, so when you upload, you will see one copyright infringement, and thats ok, as its from the WiTE game itself, to many and your video will be blocked by youtube.

it seems that I had a great success with my "corpse" blooper! At least it has created some discussion

BTW, my native language is french.

@Hanny Thanks for the good comments, much appreciated Sadly, I didn't have time to do others yet, but I have some ideas.

For the song copyrights, Youtube only blocked the possibility of adding adds, which I didn't really care about, but I didn't want to see that warning everytime I open the video management page so I decided to change it. No copyright warning from WitE at all.
