Given the alternatives I think the East Germans are the logical choice!

If I take the Polish, I can turn on either the Germans or the Russians.

True but the East Germans have a cool helmet, cool insignia and get to fight in Berlin!

My point exactly! Plus equipment that is likely to actually work

As to the Poles, there is the old joke about a Polish soldier on the frontier who sees a German and a Russian charging at him from different directions – who does he shoot first?

The German – business before pleasure

Or the other old joke about Polish troops in the late cold war that their standing orders if the balloon went up is to face North, turn right and then march as far as possible.

A joke from the '80s, I think, and not necessarily about a Polish soldier but could be:

A Pole is walking on the beach when he comes upon a bronze lamp sticking out of the sand. Naturally, he picks it up, he rubs it, and a genie appears.

"You know the drill," says the genie. " Three wishes. Let's go."

The Pole says "I want the Chinese to invade Poland."

The genie nods. "Okay, that's wish number one. Go on."

The Pole says "I want the Chinese to invade Poland."

"Didn't you already make that wish?" the genie asks.

"Yes, I did," the Pole answers. "I want it for my second wish as well."

"well, if that's want you want. And your third wish?"

"I want the Chinese to invade Poland."

"I don't usually question my clients," says the genie "but this is a pretty weird set of wishes. Why did you make those three identical wishes?"

"Simple," the Pole replies. "If the Chinese invade Poland three times they'll have to march through Russia six times."

I picked Cuba, not about GeoPolitics but for the music & the food & their rum!

I also selected Cuba. That way I could run scenarios from Red Dawn. WOLVERINES!!!

Cuba is also good for African adventures.
