I have to agree with newpaintbrush, units are the whole game. I have friends that claw and take massive losses to get three point territories that they lose the next turn. You can’t trade off twenty IPC of units for a territory without strategic value. However, if you concentrate on the units you will build an economy and take victory cities, so it has to be Units then economy then victory cities.

RE: German Win at El Alamein
Yeah I figured that would be standard procedure unless I was missing something big
(that secret german fleet off madigascar or what have you)
really I was just trying to start some talk about africa to see if i could think of any new cool ways to beat my friends.
new question though, what do you think is the optimal use of the german bomber is strategic bombing worth it?
German Win at El Alamein
I just thought I would drop a little idea I had for a German Africa strategy.
Take your Battleship and lander from SZ 14 load the transport with an infantry and an armor/artillery and move both boats to SZ 15
Drop the units on Anglo egypt where they meet
A plane from the balkans or Ukraine (or both?)
Armor and Infantry from Libya
you kill the destroyer in the Med. and the brits on land, take 2 IPCs and have africa open for conquest this also gives flexibility (you can still drop the inf/arm combo back in caucasus with a bombard)
Any thoughts or ideas?
