572 5/6/2020 10:37:00 AM Summer 1916 Allies Message I figured you would finally win a flank attack which is why I did not use a replacement on that army and instead have 3 full armies at To Petrograd.

485 5/4/2020 4:38:00 PM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message > If you didn't get Bulgaria this turn, I would have really compromised your position in the NE

Yes, I had a good hand this time, but with some problem though: a too big concentration of WS cards, I had to use two of them not as events (Place of Execution even requires to attack a French fort to be played as CC).
If you played more offensively (postponing some reinforcement) I think I would have been in big troubles. Well, I will still be in big troubles with your next offensives (now I see also a big Russian army approaching Galice and Poland, with the French reinforcing Italy, the MEF ready to land in the NE, BRc ready to move up to Damascus and Aleppo, ...)
484 5/4/2020 4:37:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message I recently finished this book while we were playing our first game. Despite the title, it is about the build up to the start of WWI and how Germany was able to get the Turks to join the war and then the war in the NE:

>The Berlin-Baghdad Express: The Ottoman Empire and Germany’s Bid for World Power is a book by Sean McMeekin, first published in 2010. It looks at efforts made by Imperial Germany during the First World War to use its connections with the Muslim world to defeat the British Empire, including directing an Islamic jihad against it.


483 5/4/2020 4:32:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message But it made no sense to be weak right next to your army and corps.

I am just glad the IT MO didn't cost me a replacement again.
482 5/4/2020 4:31:00 PM Winter 1916 Central Powers Message After so much playing WWI, I just started to read a famous book called "Un anno sull'altipiano" (One year on the upland/highland/plateau), about WWI in the "altopiano" of Asiago!
It is passioning how WWI was fought in those mountain areas (and rather incredible, in our confortable times), with lots of heroism and no useful results on both sides of the front.
481 5/4/2020 4:31:00 PM Winter 1916 Allies Message If you didn't get Bulgaria this turn, I would have really compromised your position in the NE. It is still poor, but you have me working.

It was a pity you didn't flip the Italian army in Asiago in the last replacements phase, otherwise it would have advanced and maybe conquered Trent!
(well, maybe I would have sent something more there, but I'm not sure)
