352 8/28/2019 8:37:00 AM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message I do not show an (FRc) in Bar le Duc.

You originally had a damaged FR Army and a damaged FRc there, and took 7 LFs of damage, which killed the (army), its replacement FRc, and the (FRc) in the space (6 total) leaving the space empty

which agrees with your listing of French forces on the West front..

344 8/27/2019 8:10:00 AM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message That will make the battle 4/3, German Victory.

You may want to change your losses, to hold the space? or retreat one space. My losses are fine, but depending on what you do, I may advance..
