    Just a suggestion - to reduce confusion, can we agreed orders days? I'm involved in the WWI naval game, and Exorcist has a weekly up-date for orders. Will also reduce some of teh micro-management we may want to do.

      My limited naval forces are to patrol my coast, they should not engage the Turkish Navy unless they are confident they can win.

        I will divide Greek Army in Thessaly and Epir groups. First,largest will be under command of General Panagiotis Danglis with orders to cross the border immediately.The army consist of 6 infantry divisions (1st-6th) with the 7th Division forming at Larissa, a Cavalry Brigade and 4 independent Evzones battalions.Their mission is to defeat Ottoman 8th Corps, with 2 divisions, in Sarantaporon straits, which had been extensively fortified by a German mission before the war.

        Epir Army will remain in defensive for now because of lack of equipment and men.

        GREEK NAVY

        Armoured cruiser Averof and the old battleships Hydra,Spetai and Psara with respective escorts will start moving to Straits of Dardanelles in order to force Ottoman navy in fight.
        5 old German torpedo boats will be destined for sudden attack on Turkish fleet in Salonika.Other 8 modern will patrol for Turkish ships.Orders for more boats are placed in Germany and UK,as well order for two French submarines.

        Rest of the fleet will start disruption actions on Aegean isles.
        Acknowledged. Couple of updates now that your in the game. 1. Turkish naval force is no longer in the Salonika port it was last seen moving rapidly north/east towards the Dardanelles straits. I will alert you as your new weaponry arrives. Also make sure that you carfully read the pevious posts to get up to current events and keep an eye out for future Situation Reports (these are posted as soon as everybody has given me their orders concerning the previous SitRep). The Turkish army that was based in Thessaly has moved all of it's troops to Salonika where Balkan League scouts lost contact with it. Now that you have entered the war new information is available. The Turk force appears to be moving in a eastward direction moving across the Salonika penninsula towards the Struma river. It is joined by the Vardar Army. The two are now combined into the Turkish Macedonian Army and appear to be making moves to cross the Struma river in full force. Further info is attainable in previous posts.

        And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgement.

          Certainly. What say you we have tuesday and saturday as order days? If it isnt to annoying this system (or lack there of) that we were using seems to be working alright and we might not want to get too rigid as everybody's schedule is different. I can roll with what ever you guys can do.

            And I want the part with some Montenegrins in it, the area outlined.
            Since that Fort was blown and evacuated, that and supporting my Allies is the extent of my war aims.

            I assume that I have already given my Saturday orders.

              7th Division will hold it's position currently, it will wait to meet up with the Serbians then resume the advance. They should conduct some recon to find out what the Turks are doing, and they should dig in to try and stop them from crossing the river. Let them get halfway across then ambush them.

                @Destroyer25 7th Div. is not going to arive soon enough to impead the crossing. By the time they reach where the Turks are crossing the Turks will be across in force.

                  Alright, well then I guess they should just hold tight and wait for the Serbs. In what direction are the Turks heading? East? West?

                    Using the new order days system.

                    This is sturday's SitRep. Exocist, Destroyer25, and Nikolas93TS have given me their orders already. The next SitRep will be on Tuesday next week.

                    SitRep around 8th of Oct. 1912. Bulgarian forces are still encountering stiff resistance in front of Adrianople. The advance of Bulgar forces between the Vadar and Struma river is still so far uncontested. Position of the Turkish Macedonian army was near Salonika and is throwing bridges across the Struma River. The Bulgar force in between the Struma and Maritza rivers which is attempting to evelope Adrianople from the west has encountered a limited Cav. force of about 4,000 mounted inf. which has ambushed a Bulgarian vanguard and then then it retreated to a nearby ridgeline right in the path of the Bulgar advance. It seems to intend to seriously slow the advance. Montegrin and Serb forces have encountered no resistance although it appears that the Turks have removed every source of food in the country. Also the muslim population in Macedonia has seemingly disappeared. Limited sniping attacks have been made on the marching columns but do not appear very serious. An NCO and several other soldiers were killed by a artillery shell buried in the side of the road. Albania seems to be rapidly decending into Civil War as the Tukish agitators have succeeded in stirring the southern half of Albania into a frenzy. Attacks have been carried out all over the country agianst forces allied with Balkan League forces. The weather has been steadily worsening with rain becoming more and more frequent. Also scouts begin reporting that there is a Turk force moving on the West side of the Vadar river. Its exact size is unknown and it is moving very rapidly. For the time being the scouts have lost contact with it.

                    This is sturday's SitRep. Exocist, Destroyer25, and Nikolas93TS have given me their orders already. The next SitRep will be on Tuesday next week.

                      Since the weather is bad would this be a good time to intensify bombardments on enemy trenches, as the rain would wreck them?

                        Serbia-- telling me something about how you intend to fight this war would be helpful. I see my part in this as covering your right flank and taking care of things in Albania. Might be a tall order but I feel we can handle it... unless you peel off towards the Southeast and leave me to link up with Greece on my own.

                          The Turks crossing the Struma river is moving north eastwards. This force is quite large. approx. 200,000 men. As to strengthening your bombardment it's entirely your call. Keep in mind that rain may impead movement of artillery shells to the front.

                            The 2nd Army In Prishtina is now advancing down the road(?) to Skopje, while the 1st Army is scout for that Turkish Vardar Army. A small force has been delegated to recover Kosovo. Third Army is accompanying 1st Army (unless I don't have that many troops to play with). How far have I advanced?

                              That will show you how many armies you've got. I'll communicate how far the forces have advanced on Tuesday. Right now I gotta get to school.

                                Oct.10 1912

                                Greetings. Early this morning a Turkish force attacked the Serbian vanguard in the vacinity of what is marked on Google Maps as Ckonje. The attack was extremely fierce and well cordinated. The Serb 1st Army vanguard was thrown back out of Ckonje and its vanguard divisions were routed. The Turks deployed Cav., Inf. and considerable artillery of 75mm to possibly 150mm all well cordinated. Serb casualties ran in the 10,000 range with one of the advance div.s being nearly wiped out. Turkish losses are unkown but believed to be negligible. The rout halted after some Serb units dug in on the heights overlooking Ckonje. (About five miles out of the town.) The Turks manuevered away from the battle field in a westward direction almost as soon as the Serbs dug in suggesting they did not intend to press the attack. The exact size of the Turkish force is unknown. It is possible that this is the force that was moving on the West side of the Vardar river. For now Balkan League scouts have lost contact with this force.

                                Bulgarian forces that were attempting to envelope Adrianople from the west are currently in a running battle with increasing numbers of Turkish troops. Reports suggest that this may well be the Vardar army. It has launched multiple tactical strikes largely dislocating the Bularian forces in this area and has driven them backwards possibly routing some units in the process. Currently the Bulgarian Inf. Div. that is bearing the brunt of this assualt is running dangerously short on munitions and is beginning to disintegrate. It is incapable of counter-attacking as most of its divisional artillery is short on ammo or completely cut off. If this is the Turkish Vardar army some 20,000 Bulgarians are currently facing 200,000 Turks. In front of Adrainople, unit commanders wish to press the attack as they believe that the Turks are on the verge of collapse as they are putting up little resistance and their artillery has largly ceased to fire. Turkish naval movement has picked up in the Black Sea.

                                Greek naval movements are so far un-opposed and progress towards the Dardenelles is good. The force detailed to head to the Dardenelles is nearing the island of Lemnos. However the battleship Psara was seriously damaged by an explosion which gashed its bow and necesitated a halt to repair. The escorts searched for a submarine but could not find Psara's attacker. A little later a tanker known as the Athens was crippled by a simliar explosion and nearly sank. Right now it is badly listing and is incapable of further action. One of the escort destroyers was also mildly damaged again by an unkown source but repairs are almost complete and it can readily go into action when required. It is suggested that the damage may have been from deep sea mines. However this is unlikely as the ships were damaged at considerable distance from each other. Destroyers are on the alert for Turk submarines. The French are willing to sell both submarines. Create names for them please. Also what are you ordering from Britian and Germany?

                                All over Macedonia insurgent attacks have been increasing untill they have reached a roar. Sniper attack are increasing in number and in skill. Another roadside bomb has claimed the lives of several Montenegrin soldiers. In Albania Balkan League sympathizers are under sniper attacks and have also been hit with some light artillery. The battalion of Albanians who had sided with Montenegro have fought well but have now sent out a plea for any assistance that might be rendered as attacks have increased in number and ferocity. Serb supply lines have been attacked including a train headed into Scopje which was shot up but safely made it into the city. Greek forces in the Epirus and Thessalian regions are also under attack from snipers and roadside bombs. Telegraph lines all over Macedonia have been cut.

                                What next generals?
