Played yesterday night with a friend of mine.
I played British placing my bomber on left flank.
My friend placed 2 bomber in german right flank (facing mine) and the other one on german left side.

Really tense and enjoyable.

British: 5 VP

We didn't use at all Reserve Artillery...

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' ~~~
