605 3/19/2019 10:03:00 PM Winter 1917 Central Powers Message Hi David:

Just waiting for your confirmation
604 3/18/2019 6:14:00 PM Winter 1917 Allies Message ah, I didn't do my losses correctly, thank you. I can take losses from RU10 and replacement RUc, then lose the RUc that is already there, which I had forgotten, and I have also cancelled retreat. Let me look at that.
603 3/18/2019 8:32:00 AM Winter 1917 Central Powers Message Just want to confirm how you took your losses. Are (RU9A) and RUc both retreating to Slutsk? Or did you take your losses another way (you can keep RU9A whole by killing RU10A, replacement RUc and (RUc) in the space).
602 3/18/2019 8:21:00 AM Winter 1917 Allies Message retreat to Slutsk. advance?
601 3/17/2019 9:54:00 PM Winter 1917 Central Powers Message Still might have been a waste of Von Hutier...but at least the dice for once listened to my prayers with the combat result.
600 3/17/2019 9:53:00 PM Winter 1917 Central Powers Message That does make Grodno a nice spot for a trench indeed against the German trench busters. But the Russians are starting to feel brittle...
599 3/17/2019 9:51:00 PM Winter 1917 Central Powers Message Right, you can still cancel the retreat in the woods, despite the absence of the trench effect. Forgot about that...
598 3/17/2019 9:50:00 PM Winter 1917 Allies Message I need to sleep on the retreat decision. might be worth taking another loss to hold the trench and Grodno.
597 3/17/2019 9:50:00 PM Winter 1917 Central Powers Message To confirm, RU10A is eliminated and replaced with RUc (3,0), and RU9A flips. (RUc) that was in the space is eliminated.

Retreat destination?
596 3/17/2019 9:48:00 PM Winter 1917 Allies Message (RU9) is all that's left. no losses to GE
