Because of their atrocities against civilians, which were large scale.

And which were not committed in a civil war - where they tend to be unavoidable - but in a controlled war of foreign influence.

One more remark: pointing at a "good" side is hard in this conflict, but condemning France as a "bad" side here is pretty obvious to me.

I see the 30 Years War and the Dutch Revolt as a common conflict: they ended both in the same peace treaty of Westphalia And the French civil war with Calvinist/Catholic Henry IV of Navarra was similarly an integral part of this conflict in the late 16th century. The Habsburg armies in the Netherla...

Bump. I have been playing this scenario, and indeed the French have hardly anything on the Eastern border, and also, historically, hardly anything near Paris. And the French don't have a GHQ. Until now I assumed this represented the attack on the border with Germany that was not supposed to be part ...

@Erik- yes, it is a big loophole. Esp. if you play with "Delayed commitment" (which is a-historical in WW1) it is sometimes too stupid and such results do occur. So for EAW the interim solution is to set Commitment on the smallest delay. However, I also noticed this in other games, where commitment...

But there was 100% WE MC when the CP stack entered. Can it be that the battle delay carries the start of battle over to the next turn? But if the entering stack then can switch to defensive posture, we have a loophole in the game rules that are meant to have an attack by a force that enters an enemy...

With the terrain overlay.

Each map overlay has special tooltip content.
Press the keys 1, 2, 3 etc. and look at the tooltips. Very instructive.

"Frontage open 4" means that that particular infantry element will only take up 4 spaces of the "x" amount allotted to open terrain Hmm, this is the opposite from what Pocus says, if I am not befuddled about this: If a closed terrain allows for 60 points of frontage worth and an element has a cost ...

I can verify that "frontage open 4" and "frontage closed 12" applies to all of the Russian infantry units (elements) checked thus far. Why would there be less units able to fight in open than in close? One would expect the opposite. Or does this reflect the vulnerability in open terrain that forces...

I just discovered that early September a GHQ can be appointed, but the senior general Pau is located in the Jura, so it takes another turn before corps can be organized in Paris, unless one takes the penalty for assigning Gallieni in Paris. So I might have well recruited reserve divisions instead of...
