    Well I'm a little overdue here, but it is a new week.

    So it's my honor and privledge to name the next nominee for Best Character Writer of the Week.

    Therefore I'd like to nominate the writer who inspired me to start my very own AAR, Paranoid Tsar and his AAR "Ist Das Nicht Todeswahl?".

    It is the story of famed U-Boat Commander and Admiral Karl Doenitz, leading up to and during World War II. The AAR mixes a number of narrative chapters from the point of view of Doenitz and other members of the German Kriegsmarine as well as often hilarious propaganda pieces entitles "Heroes of the Fatherland".

    If you haven't yet read this AAR I definately recommend that you do so now and give it a chance!

    Congratulations to Paranoid Tsar!

    USN Enterprise is more epic than Scharnhorst.

    Many thanks to TheLoneGunman for the selection and of course to everybody who has followed the Kriegsmarine AAR. More updates are in the works, honest!

    Using characters that are recent, historical and relatively well-known is a fun challenge. A lot of my characterization of Doenitz and others is inspired by his book Ten Years and Twenty Days which I can't recommend highly enough. Reading it was a major inspiration to come back and try my hand at a HOI2 AAR.

    As for Scharnhorst, sometimes the most memorable story lines just fall from heaven, or in this case slip beneath the surface of the ocean. Either way, "sometimes they come back" has taken on new meaning.

    Now it's time to pass the mantle to a HOI2 AAR that is off to an excellent start: Mea Culpa: A French Confession by El Pip. The so far unnamed speaker in this AAR provides characterisation and other such terrifying concepts, as the writAAR puts it. The story is the confession of an old man reflecting on his failures. It is very well done, check it out.

    Also, be sure to congratulate El Pip on Best Character Writer of the Week!
    Past and current AARs:
    The New Jerusalem A character-driven tale of Moscow's struggles to restore the Kingdom of Rus.

    Bearly Surviving A Crusader Kings comedy with lots of pictures!

    The Coat on the Floor Belongs to Mother Muscowy Vodka + EU2 + hours of posting = this AAR! Part II Part III Part IV: Victoria!
