Re: The Civil war From the Southern Viewpoint

oh dear durk, i am sorry if i misread any of your posts. I believe you perhaps have missed my post. My claim is that the standard [what you call "scholars of the american civil war"] historians by no choice of their own [and in many cases by choice] have been given the standard interpreta...

Re: The Civil war From the Southern Viewpoint

I thorough agree with Gray Fox and Searry, my mentor, E. B. Long not only helped write Bruce Catton's volumes on the Army of the Potomac and his Civil War Trilogy, but also the volume, Why the South Won the Civil War is an exemplarily example of a neutral scholar on this war.

Re: Command Ratings

I do love this post and will be interested in what others say. But here is my take - I buy games to discover the game designer's notions of factors influencing the war. This applies to leader ratings also. When I wish to experiment with the designers ideas, I use the game options for variable rating...

Re: Got Us a Convoy

Units in the convoy box allow you to bring in resources as the Republic. I think you might need some transports and maybe destroyers as you are getting resources, not blocking them.

I do not know if strength influences success, but yes, any regular/militia unit can tear up the tracks.
Once trained, militia are regulars in all aspects.

Re: Lost at Sea

I love your titling of forum topics. You have pretty much named it.
I suggest, taking troops to Majorca, especially a good leader. Blockade a port you are attempting to siege. Sneaking units to regions the Nationalist forgot to take.

Re: Combat Woes

You are very correct on this account of the difference. As the Nationalist start with trained me, until the Republic can train men, early loss ratios are very bad. Find training leaders and make sure the Republican forces are in command control. This helps a bit.

Re: Best Bang for the Buck

If you hold your capital, Propaganda campaign is first
Then Requisitions
As to picking units and such, buy what you can when you can. I usually buy from the menu options first, the builds options only occasionally.
