    The French say thank you very much. If this goes on like this, they would rather prefer not to get "liberated"... :(

    Quite a feat -- everything SE of Leningrad is dry land!

    I was trying to figure this out in-game last night, and nothing made sense. SE of Leningrad is Moscow. "Maybe he meant NE?" Nope -- more dry land. SW? Also impossible - 3 tiles SW of Leningrad is also dry land. There is some sea to the SW from Leningrad, but it's pretty narrow.

    That's pretty funny E! Maybe Admiral Canaris can radio the UBoat Crew and ask them to send a better contact report about this sinking? And remind the crew that precise reporting must be made before drinking bier!!!

    I received the save late last night and will play and forward it either later this evening or no later than tomorrow aft. Cheers!

    Don't forget, the German submarines were among the best of its kind... :lol:
    (And besides, that's about the only place where they are safe from these darn British destroyers...)


    Ok, perhaps it's simply that the crew celebrated a little too much and then confused Helsinki with Leningrad (and east with west...) :blush: So let me try again:
    2-3 tiles SW of Helsinki!

    (Edit: that should be good enough, until I can check the map in-game... :))

    Oh no no, i demand that Germany pays 10,000 gold pieces for this missinformation, i sent my T-34tank crews to go look on the underground sewers SE of Leningrad for that nasty U-Boat and we lost a hole day on that endeavour, my crews most be compensated...there are some big rats down there you know...

    Don't worry Rick, I'm sure you can collect on that debt ... you just have to send your T-34 crews to Berlin to pick up the cheque! :lol:

    If you make Patton the commander-in-chief instead of Eisenhower, he may even be disobedient enough to do so... ;)

    Roosevelt gave the instruction to stop at the Elbe and Eisenhower obeyed. Churchill on the other hand wanted to go as far east as possible, before the Soviets get there, in order to get a better amount of bargaining chips for the post-war conference...

    BTW the last chapters of Churchill's war memoirs are among the most instructive. Explains why it was so easy for the Soviets to take the Western allies to the cleaners after the war... Right in the decisive phase of the war, Roosevelt was seriously ill and not on the height of his powers anymore. Then he died and it turned out that Truman was completely uninformed about the important matters of the war. [Didn't even know about the Manhatten project! He was informed about that on the day he became President. Unbelievable for a superpower like the US and considering the bad health of Roosevelt in the last couple of months! A nation builds the most destructive weapon mankind has seen, and the vice president doesn't even know about it!] Anyway, in this critical moment of world history, the US were kind of a "headless chicken", Churchill was left on his own (and then he even lost the elections and was replaced by Attlee in the middle of the Potsdam Conference!), and that's how Stalin easily managed to occupy half of central Europe, and the British "lost the war" in the end... (Remember: the British Empire declared war in 1939 in order to liberate Poland, and that aim was decisively not achieved... :rolleyes:)

    Soviets rejoice with the British invasion of occupied France and the US bombing of Paris countryside!

    Found this fantastic multmedia presentation of the Barbarossa stages of the war, take a look if you´te interested -> http://english.pobediteli.ru/

    I didn´t know Churchil was replaced during the Postdam Conference...i really need to learn more on the imediate post war period of the war. It seems Churchill was used in a time of need and discarded when the time no longer existed...

    Lanz got me hooked on Churchill's Memoirs. It IS extremely interesting reading! Easily found at reduced prices at Amazon and others...I particularly enjoyed reading the Pre/early war period.

    And Bow...if you check in here on the thread...please post letting me know you received the save so we avoid the long delay last time due to spam filters. Thanks.
