Great job – cross-posting across multiple boards without being hit by the Bug ;-) And the game wasn't half bad either.

Nice to see the Brugeut too. I have some on order, as well as Nieuports for my next outing.

Lest anyone underestimate General der Infanterie Krafthollern's coolness under fire, here is a quote from a German regimental history that I am reading at the moment. It describes the effect of a direct hit on a German divisional HQ in the Battle of Matz, which took place in June 1918:

"On the evening of June 11 [1918], the staff of 30th Infantry Division were co-located with 3rd Reserve Division. The command post of 3rd Reserve Division was located in a grove of trees west of Mortemer and took a direct hit, causing heavy losses; 2 officers, Rittm. von Reischach and Hptm. Albrecht, dead, General Staff Offz. Hptm. Fußban and Adj. Rittm. von Kieckbusch, badly wounded; the latter, whom we especially venerated, died a day later. The Division Commander, General Rusche, temporarily lost his voice and memory due to severe nervous shock but returned to command the division two days later."

Interesting, Herr Krafthollern almost detailed off a Divisional MG to guard his HQ then thought better of it and attached it one of the regiments…

This certainly shows what an impact air power could have when it hits the target.

Gen. d. Inf. Krafthollern is clearly made of sterner stuff.
