The first lunge is into the Sudan.
While here we hold and wait for opportunities Eastern portion of the map)
My plan is to strike for open ground! Take Paris and kill some bad guys!
We clear and reinforce the Sudan crossing. We take the area adjacent and we contest the fortress garrision (adds 5 to the strength unless I use Pioneers (and give up the initiative disc) to eliminate the Garrision (up to 2 with each usage)
We force a retreat and bump the kill tally to 8 for no losses at all!
So far the opening month of WWI is a success for the Germans.
Pressing deeper we round on Calais and lunge to Paris. Quickly the French reinforce using the river lines that either 1/2 or 1/4 attack strength. Each fortress point captured also adds a valour point the army. This increase combat strength by 1 for each attack for each captured Fortress!
Brussels falls. The French reinforce. We are now not sure…do we go and finish the Belgians or try and take on Paris.
My first losses as we penetrate deep into the French heartland.
Still Turn 1 British forces arrive. Ohoh…The defense of Paris deepens.
I play the init disc.
France counter attacks in the center. Their losses mount. I must kill 20 units for the auto win, for me I may only lose just ten!
Vicious fighting continues along the Sambre river.
Wow 3 leaders use their force with some very tough British units.I have reinforced Liege but this does not look good.
The French breach the center! They can lunge to my rear and cut supply. This will cause units to attrit each turn in OOS state!
They attack again!
If I can hang on I can force a surrender. Just two to go! I have 5 up my sleeve.
yeah.. my leaders are toast.
Look how deep his forces are. ALL of the Coast line is now cutoff as is Liege. I have one change to kill him quickly. I am down to 7 dead. I need to just 2 more kills. But it is not to be, my attacks fail to wipe out the French forces, they are reduced but not killed! The French rally one more attack and its an Auto win for the French and Brits.
