I HAVE BLOCKED THAT EXPERIENCE FROM MY MEMORY! --

...um, I mean, the game dealt me a toxic hand from which I could never afterward recover.

(And also I tunnel-visioned on Canada like an imbecile; although in the end, even if I had put all those points in West Germ like I should have, I don't know that I could have triggered a Euro autowin in time.So really, I tunnel-visioned too hard on a European autowin. And also on Canada.)

I think a rematch would be great AAR reading.   \m/

Well, he also beat me at Barbarossa, so I can't exactly ask for the best two out of three...  O:-)

If I ever get a chance to figure out the game perhaps we can have a go someday.

I thought Gstockbridge's AAR covering the British 6th Airborne's landing 'East of the Orne' from Panzer Battles - Normandy was one of the prettiest and well laid out reports I had seen for quite awhile.

He did it completely in Powerpoint and included a heap of additional information including the actual history and his opponents commentary interspersed throughout the action. Add the period photos and it is a very engaging read.

That's a helluva AAR.

An interesting presentation. I'd tried to figure a way to do AAR playthroughs in Storyline 2 but there's no way to host the files that I'm aware of. Still, that's food for future thought.
