I don't think I've seen alot of CSA AARs around so it's great to have this well written one! I can't wait till you liberate my home state of North Carolina
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.
The AUS was perhaps the weakest side during the Civil War. Their demagogic leaders meant that they had severe issues with finding those willing to fight. Most of the Population of the South greeted Syndicate troops as liberators.Free Bird said:If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be travelling on, now,
'Cause there's too many places I've got to see.
Eric Blair said:Having come through Columbus we left that city behind in a lightning movement of marching feet, arriving at what were thought to be the frontlines 5 days later after long marches. Infact they were deserted, as we discovered when the French Regulars, all 5000 of them seemingly as one man charged the trenches. We scrabbled after them with a yell and a great hue and cry erupted as we skidded across the burnt clear wasteland, for the competition between ourselves and the French as written elsewhere was immense and it gave us such strength as we entered the city unopposed. We must have ran for hours through the outskirts, before reaching the city centre of Atlanta. Now we could hear the crack of guns, artillery near us and small arms further away.
We moved from building to building before coming to Washington Park. There we found the artillery brigades, and fell upon them like a pack of wolves. They didn't stand a chance.
Following that, the Colliers moved North rejoining with the French division, before sandwiching the Union troops in a vice of French, American and British steel in a northern outskirt of the city proper.
Well, the only lucky thing for USA is that Pacific States are easy to be manipulated with. Event chances are very high in the favour of USA. MacArthur can easily push PSA into alliance, puppet them or even anex them. This way you can avoid three front war and get many allied troops to reinforce your lines(in case of PSA being puppet or equal ally) or get IC of entire West Coast in case of anexation(PSA rejoins the union). I tried a game with AUS last time and USA have anexed PSA via event. They became very strong this way, making strong frontline across entire Mid-West(instead of classical North Vs South there was West Vs East). And yes, Patton sweept with everything until he somehow got stucked in the swamps of Louisiana after furious counter-offensive of USA.The thing with that armoured division and the terrain of the east coast is that it can power up through plains most of the way, and the US for some reason tends to concentrate on taking back the north and leaving Washington mostly empty for the AUS to snap up IMHO The hardest nation to win as is the USA itself on the higher difficulty levels, as on the newest Kaiserreich version the AUS gets loads (4-6) Infantry divisions by event along with all its starting stuff and the armoured division. While the CSA gets the IC base, the US gets a three front war, loses most of its IC and has terrain left to it that is perfect for being conquered.
You can't resist the pure Evilness of Dark America...Ah but the USA should never negotiate with people getting uppity or terrorists as they like to call them I always war on three fronts as the US it is much more fun. In the only full game I have done as them I lost Denver twice to the CSA before encircling and killing off 28 or so militia divisions. I must resist the urge to do an AUS AAR, must resist...
