It was a fun game! It was a close game and fun to play all game long. Although after the Allies were pushed into the sea in the spring of 44 in France, I thought it was not to be. Losing air superiority over France in spring/early summer of 44 was embarrassing. I can say it was the first game that I ever lost Baku, which was interesting. The Germans Baku campaign was definitely a gamble, and most players would not try it, that's what makes it fun to play against an opponent like Morris, he will go for it! The Germans lost the gamble, but it was close and if the Germans had succeeded it would have crushed the Russians.

Finally, I would like to thank my opponent Morris for the game! He is a very gracious opponent and a pleasure to play against!
