Avalon Hill has made an important change to the Axis & Allies Miniatures game. The SS-Panzergrenadier and the U.S. Ranger will now cost 7.
I received the following product announcement from James at Litko Aerosystems, Inc. Acrylic tokens for use with A&A miniatures coming soon.
A defensive war is apt to betray us into too frequent detachment. Those generals who have had but little experience attempt to protect every point, while those who are better acquainted with their profession, having only the capital object in view, guard against a decisive blow, and acquiesce in small misfortunes to avoid greater.

8 infantry: Purchasing 8 infantry is pretty useless for Russia’s second turn’s offense. Although infantry produced at Caucasus can potentially be of offensive use, it is usually far more useful to bulk infantry at West Russia.
Territory notes: Russian fighters should be based either at Russia or Caucasus. Basing at Russia allows Russian fighters to attack east against Japan, and west against Germany. Basing at Russia also allows Russian fighters to reach London in case of an anticipated German attack on London. Basing at Caucasus allows for a stronger defense of Caucasus, and prevents Germany from easily building Mediterranean transports.
Purchasing for All Occasions
Sun Tzu said: In the operations of war,
where there are in the field a thousand swift chariots,
as many heavy chariots, and a hundred thousand
mail-clad soldiers, with provisions enough to carry them
a thousand li, the expenditure at home and at the front,
including entertainment of guests, small items such as
glue and paint, and sums spent on chariots and armor,
will reach the total of a thousand ounces of silver per day.
