Thank you very much for the feature, and thank you all for the congratulations! It's been great to return and get back into the swing of things, and I'm honoured that so many people have continued to read my AAR (or even start reading it now) after my prolonged absence here. And while it's nearly at the end point now, there are still a few surprises left to unveilThank you all for the congratulations, and thank you @J_Master for the nomination!
As for an Anglo Bias, well... I think I forfeited my ability to defend against such an accusation when I had Searle-Wilson's introduction to FAWHA explicitly state the author's bias.
For the Showcase itself, we will be staying with Vicky II and devastating early 20th Centuries: I would like to nominate The Most Sublime Porte, by @Riotkiller, which has recently returned from hiatus with a bang. Congratulations, Riotkiller!
