    "Seeing the Elephant" Tourney

    I am afraid I will have to withdraw before the tourney starts. I have had a couple of RL issues rear their ugly heads, and I am not going to have the time to participate for the next couple of months.

    Counterattack on the Moselle

    Not a proper AAR, as I forgot to record my turns. This was a scenario I picked to play against SoccerDJ. I was Axis, DJ was Allied. An enjoyable scenario that is difficult for the Axis to win against a competent opponent - and, unfortunately for me, my opponent was very competent. Reports...

    Tunr 8 Turn 8. The tennis ball barrage has worked! The armoured units in the trees have pulled back out of LOS. It looks like they are pulling back to help defend Gressenich, as there is a lot of enemy movement in that direction. A Sherman pltn is ordered to advance down the road to the hex...

    Turn 6 Turn 6. Due to a communications error (ie; I did not press the ALT key) the smoke screen south of the trees turns out to be an HE barrage. I am able to take Diepenlinchen, which was not defended. It appears that the enemy has allowed me to take the three objectives whilst...

    Turn 5 Turn 5. Two of Captain McCausland’s platoons move towards Diepenlinchen and are fired upon by tanks that reveal themselves in the trees south of Hill 283, one of which appears to be a kitty. The enemy seems to have positioned many units in this patch of trees. A smoke shoot is...

    European Response to Bush's Re-Election

    British newspapers, especially the tabloids, never help. During the Falklands war, the front page of The Sun had a picture of the sinking Argentine Cruiser Belgrano with the headline "Gotcha."
