748 9/21/2019 4:27:00 PM Spring 1918 Allies Message Thanks Johnny,

A few thoughts
1) You spent too much effort trying to hold Constantinople; it cost you almost a full turn of action round and it was inevitable when I got close. Time is on the AP side.
2) You cannot avoid going to Total War. It will appear to work at the beginning but the events, reinforcements, higher ops are all going to catch up. Time is on he AP side.
3) I few Italy as a trap for he CP. But if you are going to move into Italy you need to focus on it and close it. Otherwise it is another front that you get expose to attacking. Better to win or or stay in the mountains.

You definitely made some strong moves where I thought hey that is great move.

Cheers, Tom
