First of all, apologies to everyone that I am a bit late making this nomination!
As Cybvep noted, I have followed a quite lot of HPP AARs and I have rarely ventured beyond the Hearts of Iron III forum. I don't doubt there is a lot of very fine work being written for the other game forums, so apologies to all those people that I'm not in a position to consider!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank especially Slan

I would also like to acknowledge two AARs in particular that I followed with great interest before I ever became involved with the forum. First, Rensslaer
's most instructive Portuguese saga, Império Novo
, and second, Uriah
's magnificent epic, Rank and File
, which I seem to have been reading forever - one day I will finally catch up!

My nomination for Fan of the Week is Surt
