That was GREAT AAR! So much exciting, especially first and last chapters!(Yes, you are right, there were only two chapters and I knew it when I was writing it...)

I hope Ikar that you were so much excited as we were, but I think that it has taken "a little" more time to play through than read about :D

It still isn't the shortest AAR ever written by me though. So far, the one about Finnish Winter War was the shortest one :D

With my AARs, it's always like that. I plan my next AAR (yes, it's that I haven't announced yet, though if you look around the AARland, I guess I've scattered enough information for you to make a picture what's it going to be about) to be a lot more detailed though. So far enjoy the lightness of my AARs, you'll miss it later on :p

Truly, Italy's determination knows no limits...

Germany seemed to to do surprisingly well against the USSR. Do they typically do better in HPP than in vanilla?

I expected Albania to be overrun but you rallied the defense. What about the Myth that post 42' is when Italy really begins to pressure Albania :eek:?

Well, you've proven me wrong (not really that hard). So the Italians were stumped when they couldn't peacefully wade ashore. Nice job - shame that it broke the Italian event chain, but I can't blame you for the game's flaw. Well played and good luck with the next one. :)

Truly, Italy's determination knows no limits...

On par with the historical one ^^

Germany seemed to to do surprisingly well against the USSR. Do they typically do better in HPP than in vanilla?

I can't say, since I rarely play a game without making an AAR about it. You have to find this out yourself and asked more seasoned players or modders themselves ;)

I expected Albania to be overrun but you rallied the defense. What about the Myth that post 42' is when Italy really begins to pressure Albania :eek:?

To be (dis)continued :D

Seriously, they'd need to drop like a corps of HARM on me to win this fight.

Thanks for the kind words. Be sure to check out the duo of my currently active AARs! :)

However short it is, I still enjoyed reading this little AAR. You have a nice style of writing, so looking forward to more stuff.

Yes, I like to keep my AARs light and fun. In my opinion, narrative AARs spread out way too much and shadowed the primary function of the AAR; to be informative and help both reader and writer to perfect his gaming skills. And my mother still forces me to read regular books, while I read almost all the AARs around here, DAMN! :D

I got carried away, but I like to keep my answers different all the times ^^
