the moscow line was a combination of 3 lines, It think they where called
1.¬  Rzhev-Vyazma defense setup
2. Mozhaisk defense line
3.¬  Moscow Defense Zone

Combined the formed the 3 defencive lines around moscow.

Had winter not been an issue how do you think the Germans would have faired in taking Moscow?

I recently made friends with a guy that has played Risk, but has only heard of A&A and from my talks with him has little to no WWII knowledge. Have any of you had sucess with players like this? Should I make him my apprentice?

I did teach him to play Catan and he enjoyed it.

The Tiger I from the¬  Replacements episode of Band of Brothers.
Or the Jagdpanther from The Carentan episode if the Tiger was busy brewing up another Cromwell.
Can I have them as they are not in a film? Please!
awesome choice, Witt.

I'll take Bill and Ted's Phone Booth Time Machine.

Do these Leningrad and Moscow lines have names? I will soon address Leningrad, I'm working on a WWII fortress poll. If you can find any names, I will add them to the poll.

From my readings on the subject the old Vauban fort proved to be the most difficult of the German held positions to capture during the Siege. My grandfather's 2nd Inf was so chewed up from the fighting from St. Lo and Brest that they were sent to the area around St. Vith and got hit hard during the opening days of the Bulge.

The First World War by John Keegan is a great read. You will greatly enjoy the read. It does a good job covering the entire event.

The Guns of August by Tuchman is a great read of the cause and opening days and months of the war.

All Quiet on the Western Front is a short but great read. It does a great job putting the horrors of war and the everyday life of the German troops of the War.

My grandfather's U.S 2nd Inf went up againist two German fortifications, the Atlantic Port garrison of Brest and the Westwall. During both operations he was under his worst bombardments. A mortar attack at Brest and an 88 along the Westwall. His job in the Army was to cook, then haul the food to front line units. He told me along the Westwall the last thing you wanted to do was carry food to a unit on the frontline while both sides are dug in, you stick out like you have a target painted on you.

The reason the German U-boat War gets more attention than the U.S Sub War in the Pacific, is the German Beards.  cheesy

Germany had so many advantages in WWII with the Navy compared to the Kaiser's Navy, but had little to no Navy to work with.

The Southern Army was not as well armed in this fight, not all of the Confederates were armed with rifled muskets. A good many still carried smooth bores this early in the War.

N.B Forrest was one of the only Southerns to reach the Tenneesee River.

I'm a Texan, and it wasn't a Civil War, it was the war of northern aggression!

I'll second that thought, we also refer to the War as the War of Southern Independence.

I'm looking to purchase some C.S.A flags for Memorial Day for the three Confederate service men buried in my church's graveyard.

Certainly not.
My idea of glorious war died with the Empire.
Holding off natives armed with slices of fruit, while I shoot back with my repeating rifle from behind an eight foot barricade is how I¬  like to fight.
If you can get them to arm themselves with fruit, even sharp pieces, I will be there in the front line with you Garg.
 

so funny
That was one of the funniest post I've seen on this site. If Wittmann enlist he must wear a Victorian Era British Uniform.  smiley
