    A quick reply to all before posting the next page,
    - Yes, my chances of victory are very, very good - but it's not certain, and Russia does pose a potential threat - although I had not taken it very seriously in the early stages of this war.
    - I am not a genius - merely a fan of creative story-telling and gaming.
    - Panjab is rather jingoistic - this will have some effect on the story in later pages, so I shouldn't give out too much.
    - The Nile Nailers feel a lot worse than they should, seeing as the war would have started when it did regardless of their success or failure. But try telling them that...
    - (@ thekinguter) Panjab has been industrializing rapidly ever since its westernization - I hinted at that with the chimneys that have appeared in Lahore's background.
    - Drama! Comedy! Action! Possibly shading! All these and more in... Subcontinental Subtleties!

    Leave the war to the generals! Away with the Maharajah (from matters of war)!

    oh whoops, is there something Dalip should have mentioned earlier?
    Remember, whatever the question, the answer on 18 September is Yes ...

    I love the way you have the diplomacy map superimposed at an angle on the table. It's just beautiful. Honestly, I don't know how you can do all of that in Paint of all things.

    Note to Dalip, when you move a 15k man army do rememver to tell your Generals; you don't want to shoot them later for getting your capitol taken.

    So, where are the reserves ?

    BTW nice touch on the "only" 10000 losses. More 3 of those "only" and you have no army

    Well, he’s not the only one in charge of the armies, despite making it look that way, so the worst may be averted.

    Heh, things aren’t that bad – 70 brigades is 210,000 men in the Panjabi army. But the soldiers fighting in Benares couldn’t quite see it that way.

    The trick is that I’m not using Paint, but rather Paint Shop Pro 6, a 1999 program that gives more options than Paint, although it’s not at the level of Photoshop. Still, I suppose one could get comparable results for the map with the stretch/skew option in Paint. All the other effects can be as easily done in either program, I think.

    "Sort of like a thunderbolt-type of warfare." Genius!

    Dalip's cunning plan came close enough to backfiring.

    Lovely, I used Paint Shop Pro in the 90s as well, and actually kept using something similar to what you're using until I found GIMP. I still get confused when people talk about Playstation Portable since PSP is the abbreviation of something else entirely to me...

    Dalip, the origin of 19th century facepalms Also complete with military bad puns

    So, the Brits were pushed out of Lahore proximities. Are they dead yet or you will need to lose a lot of time pingponging them to death? You need those troops for Bombay :/

    "The upper hand on the higher ground" I shall plagiarise that and try to use in casual conversation.

    Well I'm glad I found this AAR - I shall begin using Dalip's masterful strategies in all my future battles.
