3 AUG 1916

Quiet. Germans gathering forces for offensive... I hope to switch AH arty with German one after offensive begun. Then AH arty will go to support Italian front line.
Image

Quiet. Bulgarians slowly comeing to aid Ottoman Empire. Also AH arty is comeing...
Image

Alied attack Germans in two sectors. Nothing special. I will wait and gather ammo.
Image
Image

31 AUG 1916

All is ready- German arty are in thair places and waiting for order to lounch assault.
Image
Image
Image

If there will be no brakethru I will have to use new equipment.

Image

Quiet.
Image

28 SEP 1916

12 OCT 1916

Alied retreat from the south sector of western front. Massina want to keep line to avoid attack from three directions. I have sent AH arty to Italian front- allmoust everything is ready for attack. But winter is comeing...
Image
Image

British forces was not keeped at good tech level here so I was able to kill one corps. I have made an error to- I should move corps from second line to occupy hex after British corps was destryed. I didn't do this so I was unable to attack arty- I have forgot about this unit.

Sorry for delay... I was busy last days...

26 OCT 1916

Western front. At 5:55 German ground forces lead by Himburg started offensive... Masive artilery bombardment at the first 30 min surprised French troops (but the whole opperation wasn't big surprise- Massine scouted my arty concentration). Coordinated attacks enable German infantry to penetrate deeply into enemy territory and attack French arty. The plan is to turn on Dion and destroy frontline at southern sector. Ammunition is low becouse of bomber use to support attacking units. Also heavy air battles has been seen over the all front line lenght.

Image

Italian front is ready to start their offensive.
Image

Same time Ottoman Empireadvance after British forces. Battle for Suess Cannal has started.
Image

9 NOV 1916

Heqavy fights near Verdun. Allied counterattack has cut of German spearhead. Only brave combined arty/bomber/infantry attack reestablished suplylines. Spearhed corps attacked French bomber.
Image

Same time Italian front begun their operation. Italian line has ben broken in one point after arty and infantry attack.
Image

Advancing Ottoman's attacked British lines to prevent trench building. I will regroup and strike at Ismailia fortress.
Image

23 NOV 1916

Last turn before winter.
British and French units withdraw frome front line- thay took new possitions couple miles behind. It seems that there is a problem in units number to cover brake point. Central Powers took this territory and German corps attack the weakest point in new line. It was an attack without arty support (only bombers- AH and German).
The plan is to start assault on Dion and than after there will be a bigger hole turn to Paris and than Rouen. But I think I will be unable to do it becouse of winter. Massina made a smart move befor winter.
Image
Image

Italian counterattack stoped AH offensive in this sector. I will risk no more attack along the coast becouse of Battleships. If there will be a chance to make any progress I will attack Milan
Image

Another attacks to prevent trench build. Next turn I will attack Ismailia. Arty prognosis are 5-0 if British will not upgrade garisson in the fortres.

Sorr I was busy and have no time to post new turns.

7 DEC 1916

I don't remember exactly what happend but I can say that there was a fight near Verdun. Both sides suffere casulties. Also Attack ona Ismailia was repeld by British.

Image
Image
Image

21 DEC 1916

Screens before and after my moves. Entente moves back to make frontline shorter. My pursuit will damage effectivnes of my units so Massina can stop me at new possitions.

It is fascinating to watch the to and fro of the campaign. An interesting right hook you have going in France.

And couple more turns.

4 JAN 1917

Revolt in Arabia

Western Erope front still moves allmoust without fight. Arty bombardment and ground assault on British corps up from Dijon. Entente takeing new possitions better to defence. I will start bombing campain in England. Plan is after cutting Sues Cannal and attack rest of the convoys with subs. Land production wil be draind by flying mashines... The plan is to bite everywhere I can becouse winter block any of offensive manuvers...

Image
Image
Sues Cannal blocked... British will suffer a lot...
Image
Image
Image

18 JAN 1917

Entente on retreat again... almoust no fighting. Bombers takeing possitions...

Image
Image

1 FEB 1917

Quiet. Winter brake. After Massina found new lines I have to stop attaking becouse lost of manpower and one more thing. I am at the stage that after heavy fights near Verdun I suffer from not enough corps number in the southern part of the fron.
In Italy nothing special.
Image
Image
Image
Image

15 FEB 1917

It seems that I forgot to take picture of the western front.
Image

Bulgarians took Alexandria. It looks like this is it for this front...

THX. After I'm looking on AAR from CEAW I regreat that this game is not so popular as it older sister. Buta I can understand it- there are more people that are interesting in WW II than WW I. I was the same until I saw that there will be new Commander in WW I. From then I'm more interested in WW I than WW II.

1 MAR 1917

There are still heavy fights near Verdun. I'm loosing units. This is no good becouse Germans runni9ng out manpower.
Image

Entente retook Alexandria forme Otoman Empire.
Image
Image

15 MAR 1917

Still fighting at the gates of Verdun. We both have heavy losses. I need to plan an offensive befor I will attack again... and have to gather ammo. I think that my corps southe west from the fortress will die this turn.
Image

Finaly AH attack on Italian front. It may be na mistake that I left arty undefended but I was thinking that Italians have onluy one line and there will be no unit to counterattack. We will see what they will do.

29 MAR 1917

I took pictures before moves and after. Italian front picture is taken after arty bombardment and French front after fighter squadron attack bombers in Paris. Hopefully my corps near Vedun survived. I can't loos more units becouse new one enter with lowerd efectivness.
Image
Image

And here is situation after fight. French bombers are destroyed. Now it's time for a brake to regroup and gather some ammo.
Image

Italian corps was destroyed and AH have now two hex to attack Milan. But I have used my ammo so I need a brake here too. Entente will surly try to recapture hex south-east from Milan.
Image
Image

German subs attack British convoys. We will take them with hunger... Third sub squadron is entering sea at German port.

12 APR 1917

Situation befor moves...
Image
Image
Image

... and after. I wanted to start saving ammo but there was oportunity to destroy British corps. Germans lounched attack but I have decided to hold my ground. I have to be carefull and save manpower...
Image

In Italy AH retreat to save positions
Image

Uprising stopped. No more threat in this sector...
Image

26 APR 1917

Before moves. It looks like Entente is waiting and regrouping.
Image

Only Italians made some actions last turn...
Image

And again I decided to harras one more turn. I was thinking that I am able to destroy another British corps but Germans faild even with arty support. This move can revange on me...
Image

Harrasment on Italian fron. Frome now on I start to save ammo and plan last offensive I hope...

10 MAY 1917

French had destroyed my infantry corps. There is no more room for mistakes. Otherwise quiet.
Image

Image

All fronts saving ammo. I have moved my bomber squadrons in case of support in Italy. I hope that after 3 turns I will be ready to launch offensive. I will think about start bombing campain agains Italy. Maybee there is solution to first defeat Italians then France... but for now plan is that I will first attack in Italy and capture Milan. Then Turin to threat another direction in France. Then situation will be easier for Germans. For now there is a solid defene line in France and makeing any brakethrue will be difficult. Germans also start to build one more arty, fighter squadron and fifth submarin squadron....

Image

Affensive in France has begun. I hav startet my attack where british arty can't give support for infantry. This turn I "softened" enemy and nex turn I will try to attack.

16 AUG 1917

After my moves.
Looks like my offensive has no chanse to brake french lines. Germans have used all of ammo and there is no progress. At last I'm able to bombard one unit each turn or lounch some bombing rides on cities...
Image

Italian army is cut in half and I have started my jurney through the mountains....
Image

30 AUG 1917

Befor my moves. British arty bombarded German's infantry, shuffle in the front lines- no more enemy's action.
Image

Italian's front line moved back
Image

I can't brake lines in one big assault so I will try to tire French.
Image

In Italy there is a good progres. CP also continue crossing mountains....

If you accept the Italian surrender, do you have to evacuate their territory?

No. War in Italy end at once. Territory that I have captured is mine- rest is Italians. I have capured hex that allaw me to enter France so there is no need to fight there.
If I do not accept surrender war is going on I don't know how long- maybee untill complete conquer of Italy...
