Fumbling My Way through History

I love the feeling that pervades this AAR:"Germany over all, but Hitler,...we might have made a mistake with that one." very RL, I think.
The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
Very true. I also suspect you can put in numerous nation/leader pairs in there and have the same sentiment!
Both very true comments and much appreicated. I'm trying to portary Hitler a little bit more..."crazy" in the sense of seeing stuff that isn't there. Somewhat similiar to how Stalin intially reacted to news that Hitler had betrayed him. However, I doubt that Hitler would have ever overcome such a betrayal. Thus he's seeing divisions that aren't really there. Hitler has also been marginalized in the sense that, his standfast orders did not save Germany, but rather the generals intervened and ordered retreats. This is even more evident with the appointment of Guderian and Ringel.I love the feeling that pervades this AAR:"Germany over all, but Hitler,...we might have made a mistake with that one." very RL, I think.
Ditto. I'm subscribing
Thanks guys. I've read a few books that adopted this style of writing for the narrative and I'm adapting it to writing about Tristan. The books I read are "War" (Sebastian Junger), "Storm of Steel" (Ernest Junger), "The Last True Story I'll Ever Tell" (John Crawford) and "The Forever War" (Dexter Filkins).Just caught up and I have to say I really like your narrative.
Thanks. I aim to please and am glad that people are happy with the narrative. It very much is a narrative and is adapting more so every time I continue to write about it. I mentioned earlier that I took inspiration from a series of books and continue to do so. As we indulge deeper into the story, there will be more intense moments. As some can see expletives have been included and will continue to do so. I do apologize if people are offended, but to misquote Sherman: "War is hell." War brings out the best in people and the worst in people - expletives will be included.I can't wait for the next update! by far the best narrative in a very long time!
Without N. Africa his feeling of being needed, to be the one called by Providence to get rid of Hitler, may take a bit of time to surface. It was already there, but the near-death experience speeded the process.
I agree Kurt, however I think General_Hoth hit the nail here. There have been plenty of occasion for near death experiences, most of them have been through the eyes of Tristan so far. However, I will try to make a mental note to include more background of the conspiracy for Hitler. I have some ideas for the conspiracy and it will be different than your typical bomb plot - though a bomb may be used (I'm not ruling out out) it will not be the primary means of assassination.I think this reality got plenty of occasion of near death experience too
