Very concise and informative.  I may actually have to play this one now.

Does anyone know if Vik is planning a North Africa game?

Good review but I am still not sure I am ready to take on a game like this.

Try !From Warsaw to Paris first - similar mechanics but simpler strategic situations.

Thanks I might have to look into that when they have their holiday sale.

if you are on the brink take a look at the aar's.

here is an interesting one by Olivier playing the axis with full rules on. he is using and exclaiming the game mechanics rather well. he killed the soviets (me) by taking objectives fast and thus causing a dismissal of the soviet commander.

there is a newer one by him, against a better me this time. we play with high command rule but without dismissal.
