    I've played 4-5 games to completion and I have never seen the UK get a foothold in continental Europe. If I were France and the Netherlands I'd be very concerned right now.

    Naggy, do you have enough BB spare to make the Russians disgorge some territory this time?

    I didn't play V1 enough to really give a fair approximation. And thank you!

    Well, and their 85 peasant brigade friends.

    Yup! I'm hoping by slowing down, I'll retain interest longer, given how annoying it is to fight Russia every 5 years for nothing.

    I want Emilia, which will give me a border with Italy and Papal States to try and get a border incident.

    Concerned? I'd be increasing relations with the UK to 200 ASAP. As to BB, no I don't. I could free some provinces, but I'm not sure it's worth it yet. I may save up and release 5-6 regions at once, though.

    Maybe if Italy attacks Austria now, the UK will help both sides, and attack themselves.

    I can hope.

    Well, due to interruptions, I've had to save/load twice during the period, which sucks due to the economy restart "bug". Thus, can't post the next chapter until I get far enough along to write, and today just sucked for that.

    In addition to this AAR, I am starting a completely different sort of AAR - a POPulist AAR about individual POPs within a nation. No nation is chosen yet, so feel free to head on over to the AAR and vote for the nation I'll play...

    Chapter 11: 'ware the Pendulum

    The plan for this round with Russia is the same: pull back, let Russia's army follow their motto (Semper Attritus) and do something I can exploit.

    Beginning army count: Russia - 111, OE - 49.

    May 7, 1855: The occupation of Serbia is in full swing, with 24,000 men chatting up Serbian women. The language barrier and lack of consonants doesn't seem to really be a hinderance.

    May 20: Prussia and Austria can't agree on much, except that they both hate the UK.



    May 30: The Russians are using a bold new tactic: take needless attrition!



    June 10: Our Sindhi subjects are busy running to the outhouse.



    June 19: We are done researching Medicine (yay +25% supply!), and start researching a Russian tech - Positivism. As in, they're positive they'll win this time!

    July 1: Russia can't wait to give me something to exploit - I was afraid I might have to wait a while before I had a chance to do much. I have a +2 defense general in Bor, and am ready to shut the door on the Russians. However, if they keep trickling in armies, I won't be able to encircle them.



    One fun note: Russia has a score of 156. Italy is 154, and Spain is 132. If I humiliate Russia, I can knock them out of GP status. Hrm....

    June 27: China is included in UK's SoI. This at least preserves them from getting chopped to bits.

    August 6: The Russians are mauled horribly in Bor, Serbia. Our army follows to Tirgu Jiu, Wallachia...



    August 23: ...which doesn't work out any better for the poor Russians. This war is going well so far - over 40k Russian dead in 2 battles, plus attrition damage...



    August 26: ...and the entire court needs a change of trousers. Austria is allied to Chuck Norris the UK.

    Yikes! I'm assuming that the UK honors the Austrian alliance but since you didn't show it there's still a slight hope that you're 'only' fighting Austria and Russia. I don't like to think what the British fleet will mean for your unprotected and rather long coastline.

    When the veteran generals said learn from Napoleon, it seems like the young generals took the message too literally.

    Good results against Russia who continues to employ remarkably innovative strategies in attempting to shred her own armies to ribbons as quickly as possible. Hopefully Russia's advanced military tactics have also been adopted by Austria and Great Britain!

    I suppose the two major questions are does the UK follow Austria into the war and will the Russians accept a quick peace deal?

    How many brigades does Austria have?

    I suppose if you married up Serbian with Turkish you do sort of get a reasonable balance between vowels and consonents? - or at least very harmonic vowels
