    Actually we donít. We just have to keep you (and the West) from delivering the knock out blow against us.

    Yes you did a good job of attacking the third rate armies of our allies (something the CW and Americans are also doing) but you will soon have to face the first string in any attacks that you launch. Look at the numbers and see how comfortable you will be when your 3 corps are facing 2 divisions on equal terms.

    Good luck taking back the land then.

      Oh really? WHat planet do you live in?
      By present, do you mean this particular week?
      I suppose you have noticed a change in the tempo of operations, I transfered myself from Africa on 1/42 to Russia, and things have been more interesting since then.
      Now, I suppose you have a similar ability to conjure units at will as the West does, but just wait till you try to get a serious offensive going, you'll find that they go very, very slowly.
      Nice to see you are thinking of joining the show in Turkey, but now that things are busting loos down there I think your a bit late to save the Middle East.

        So that your super V weapons can come into play . You've got until 6th August 1945 to get those on line .

        It is just that type of view that will lose you the game . You will need all the men you have.

          We are not even on a full war footing yet and we are still killing more of you than you of us . And we have more to play with .

              They sing very nicely. Pity you didnít teach them to stand and fight instead. Oh well must be the penchant for young boys that your leadership has. Canít have them getting all dirty.

              • The poor guys must be awfully nervous, and who can blame them?

                The West is fighting on three fronts, stretching themselves awfully thin very early, and that still has not prevented a Turkish collapse. And with Turkey going down in flames, its a whole new ball game folks.

                And Damascus, and Cairo... and wont it be interesting when El Alamien is fought in reverse, eh?

                  This could very well refer to the Nazi's as well. And with the same result .

                    • This Turkey nonsense is very puzzling. Must be hypnoitized by those belly dancers .



                      I shouldn't really laugh. Our town has its own troupe of belly dancers - really .

                      Rhysian is one of them .

                        We're not thin - just on a diet right now.

                        We are holding our own by all accounts in two of the fronts and with regards to Turkey logistically speaking that is pretty hard for us to get there in full force which is why our allies are watching our backs.

                          No, think about it a moment.
                          When you remove all the Axis and all the Allied mistakes, you wind up with the same situation again. In this game, the ship of state is about as maneuverable as a locomotive on rails.

                          The Turkish operation was Tsar's idea, and I support it because it was the best way to change the historic routine. Judging by all the back & forth when it happened, it must have come as a great surprise.

                          We don't have to follow in every footstep, do we?

                          • I will give it you guys that it was a surprise (albeit one that was made clear once we slowed you down in Greece).

                            I like the "off the rails" of your guys' game and playing out some "what ifs" to see if the Allies/SU can stop it. I'm interested to see what happens after Turkey.
