    Congratulations, your AAR has already inspired me to play a game as Hungary. And it was fun.

    I have to admit that I'm pretty surprised (and yet extremely pleased) by the award, since my current AAR is the first one I've ever written. It made me so happy that I finally made an effort to create my signature

    I bought HOI2 6 months ago, I was learning the basics, browsing the forum for information and help, when I found the AAR section, and liked it a lot. I decided that I would make a record of my 2nd campaign game in a form of an AAR. Some might find my style too data-oriented, raw, simply written, lacking exciting plots and funny dialogues. But my goal was to focus on the military part of the action, maneuvers, operations using maps and data tables/diagrams. On the other hand, I'm not so good at English, so writing epic AARs would be quite difficult for me.

    The reason why I picked Hungary for the AAR is that I was a newbie to the game, so I wanted to play with a smaller country, without huge armies and complicated naval management. And having relatively few divisions and leaders makes them more unique, more lovable . The country has a lot of potential (maybe even too much in HOI2 ), so a lot of stuff can be achieved with correct decisions. I read a lot about Hungarian WWII history since I've started the AAR, which I found very exciting. I wish I had done it before I started .

    A few words about myself: I'm a 30-year-old guy living in Nordjylland, Denmark. I work as a software developer, play waterpolo in my spare time, and I'm a great fan of WWII history, and WWII fighter aircrafts (I was so happy to see more air action in patch 1.3 ). Additionally, I'm a (motor)bike addict, which is pretty unfortunate in rainy Denmark . I hope I can "invade" Italy this summer...

    And in the end I'd like to thank spade-tiger for passing the award, and of course all the readers of my AAR. I'm really glad to see that some of the AAR veterans (or rather legends ) appreciate my work. It really gives a boost to my AAR writing morale. So, thanks guys!
