I've just got into C&C The Great War, love it. Only had one game but am totally hooked. I've downloaded Vassal and just working my way through a solitaire game, what a system and thank you to you all on here who steered me towards it (with your comments), I was totally unaware of it.
I saw them tie a soldier to a cartwheel with his arms outstretched as a punishment. I also knew of men who did themselves in. British soldiers weary of sitting in the trenches who cut their throats during leave. If order hadn't been maintained, they would have deserted. They were coerced. When you're in the army, you can't just do whatever you want. ~~~ Gaston Boudry, in the Belgian book 'Van den Grooten Oorlog' ~~~
