TOMMYLOTTO, we salute you.
COngratulations on a great AAR. This account clearly demonstrates why Italy is such a blast to play. It's certainly one of my favorites even if I have never done so well.

Superb AAR, throughly enjoyed it tommylotto.
Sad to see it end. I would have liked to have seen you tangle with the Commies or the Allies.
tommylotto, you are my hero! Now, just make another one!
Faugh a ballagh!

Wonderful, especially that you didn't attempted a WC like so many others. That wouldn't have fit in your narrative.

tommylotto, I believe these words fit yours. I thought them up just now.
La luce di Roma, risplende per sempre! Da Lisbona a Constanople, Da Saigon a Pechino, da Pyongyang a Seoul!
Nuovo Impero Romano durerà l'eternità!
(The light of Rome forever shines! From Lisboa to Constanople, From Saigon to Beijing, From Pyongyang to Seoul!
The New Roman Empire will last for an eternity!)
While I was hoping for another showdown, at some point sucess becomes boring. :P
It's been quite an enjoyable AAR nonetheless.

Great AAR, great conquests. Italy is now the most powerful state in the world.
I very much hope you will write another AAR some day.
This was absolutely fantastic! I look forward to your next efforts!

I just found this (here I am...late again) and I really have to tip my hat to you tommylotto...REALLY impressive results for Italy presented very effectively. I sure hope you do another AAR so I can catch it on the ground floor this time.
