much newer build 77 is up now btw, with many more factions, especially medieval factions, and more unit types like nights, cataphracts, elephants, slingers, crossbowmen, etc...

Quote from: Silent Disapproval Robot on February 23, 2024, 08:59:56 AMEp 6 was pretty decent despite there being no action in the air.  Feels like the character development is really hitting its stride (even though they seem to have left off Quinn's story for quite a few episodes now).

More evidence of Spielberg really having something against the Brits, unfortunately.  Once again, they're portrayed as condescending dickheads throughout.  I also thought they went a bit overboard with their portrayal of ze Germans.  They came across more like caricatures from a Captain America comic than real people.

Still loving the series though.  I really wish they'd do something like this covering Bomber Command.

I liked Ep6 as well, and my wife got a big smile on her face when Elvis 'came back into the building.'

Interesting song choice for the montage. I approve. But it's just that Woody Guthrie's original version was a bit of a toe-tapper. In the montage, it was slow and ballad like.  Almost didn't recognize it. Here's Woody's version:

  Yes.  This game really tries hard to drive home the weirdness of late-seventeenth -- early eighteenth century warfare in Western Europe.  I'd never heard of the battle of Neerwinden before for that matter.

I'm not much of an attacker against myself (solitaire).  I think I pushed the French too hard cross the board.
Around noon, everything went wrong:  the Guards got thrown out of Neerwinden, one flank was barely holding on and the
the Bavarian Cavalry smashed the whole left wing, which I thought was okay.  But no.  So I am giving up on winning
Neerwinden historically for the French.
