Re: Free France Campaign

Here's another quote from Tassigny, probably harder to place in the campaign, but pretty cool: :wink:

Un optimiste, c'est un homme qui plante deux glands et qui s'achète un hamac.
An optimist is a man who plants two acorns and buys himself a hammock.

Re: Free France Campaign

:D And a quote from General Jean de Lattre de Tassigny , which may come in handy much later in the campaign ( during Operation Dragoon or another scenario close-by in terms of timing :wink: ): Frapper l'ennemi, c'est bien. Frapper l'imagination, c'est mieux. Hitting the enemy is good. Striking the i...

Re: Free France Campaign

[... ] Excellent. I will use these where appropriate. Any more? About these quotes, I don't know, but I'd say rather not. :? There are other famous quotes from Charles de Gaulle, of course, but in my opinion more difficult to insert into this campaign... More difficult in terms of content, but also...

Re: Free France Campaign

:D For all intents and purposes, here are a few more or less famous quotes from Charles de Gaulle ( together with a translation )... perhaps some of them could appear here and there in the campaign? :wink: La guerre, c'est comme la chasse, sauf qu'à la guerre les lapins tirent. War is like hunting, ...

Re: Free France Campaign

:D Hey, I've just got another idea, as in the 2nd scenario ( Gabon ) there are ( or should be at least ) few British ships to support the operation... :idea: The sec obj "Do not lose any British battleship or carrier" ( Dakar ) could come together with the loss/non-apparition of the British ships in...

Re: Free France Campaign

So, for instance about the " 13ème demi-brigade de Légion étrangère "... it could appear maybe via a more generic " 13e LE " (thus forgetting on purpose about the "DB"-aspect!) and then eventually with some numbers/letters to differentiate between our units if there are more than one in the game tha...

Re: Free France Campaign

Dakar: [...] I am going to add a secondary objective to take some outlying villages "to secure the perimeter" or something. Here is the issue: Nice, big, well-made map but with the objectives being only "Capture Rufisque" and "Capture Dakar," 90% of it will not be used. [...] Yes, indeed, some sec ...

Re: Free France Campaign

[...] Either go ALL aux (including FF), or go with more general names that are specific enough to stand out and be remembered but will not tie the units to specific regions and times. So here is a poll: All Aux units allowing fancy names or FF Core with less detailed nomenclature? Well, that's a co...

Re: Terminator's Scenarios

By the way, it's the success of Operation Uranus , launched on the 19th November 1942, that enabled the Red Army to surround 300'000 soldiers of the 6th German Army and IVth Panzerzarmee of General Paulus ( Stalingrad! ). Then, in order to take advantage of the situation, the Soviet HQ launches a se...

Re: Terminator's Scenarios

Operation Saturn(1.02) : 8) Major Victory in 25 turns out of 40 ( at level 3, as usual ). A pleasant and interesting scenario :D , which still requires a little more work: 1. The text and title of each and every event (except one, the " Za Rodinu! "!) is to be added, of course preferably cool and i...

Re: Free France Campaign

Conboy, for now, Erik and I have decided to end the campaign with the Liberation of Paris. We kicked around those later battles in which the French fought in late 1944 and 1945, but they seem anti-climactic and questionable as to how much of a role the French played in them. You indirectly support ...
