Shouldn’t it read:
Don’t be such a Gargantuan Contrarion?
Nice use of sacrasm here…
You are right little boots the game is horribly unbalanced in the axis favour. It is so unbalanced you were able to notice it after only your first play. Th#e more you play it the more you realize how unbalanced it is.
The terms D-Day and H-Hour are used for the day and hour on which a combat attack or operation is to be initiated. They designate the day and hour of the operation when the day and hour have not yet been determined, or where secrecy is essential. For a given operation, the same D-Day and H-Hour apply for all units participating in it. When used in combination with numbers, and plus or minus signs, these terms indicate the point of time preceding or following a specific action. Thus, Hâˆ’3 means 3 hours before H-Hour, and D+3 means 3 days after D-Day. (By extension, H+75 minutes is used for H-Hour plus 1 hour and 15 minutes.) Planning papers for large-scale operations are made up in detail long before specific dates are set. Thus, orders are issued for the various steps to be carried out on the D-Day or H-Hour minus or plus a certain number of days, hours, or minutes. At the appropriate time, a subsequent order is issued that states the actual day and times.
Correct. Good explanation. WWII had many “D-Days”, but the one on June 6 1944 became so famous that it has tended to overshadow the rest, and to occupy a category by itself.
I just wanted to add these so if people were wondering whatever became of these articles:
The Allied Strategy:
The Axis Strategy:
I think the Germans were a different color too. One set was dark black and other was i little lighter in black. Got 2 different blockhouse colors. Man I was pissed when bought 2nd set. I needed more infrantry for Uk and Germany for IL’s WW2 game that starts with 600 pieces. I try not to use chips if I can. Ended up buying like 2000 pieces of each kind of piece on e bay couple years ago. because I also needed Russian infrantry and tanks. That was nice got like 100 infrantry for each country and all the tanks you needed and ships. Just waiting for Coach and FMG to come up with the L crusiars, L AC, tankers,air transporters for game with the added pieces. also pacific sold Japan as red as well but use them for neutrals do to needed ships. painted rest.
