Hi there everyone! While I wish I had some of the awesome prose that you guys show here on the forums, my preffered medium is that of film.  I wanted to showcase my "Battle for Kiev" in "Gary Grigsby's War in the East" I am currently playing as Germany against a multiplayer opponent. In this scenario we must be in Kiev by turn 6.  I hope you enjoy, and feel free to add some feedback!

PART 1

Many thanks, Agrippa Maxentius

Part 2: Our men attempt to encircle and smash an entire Russian Army group, it seems Comrade Stalin is going to have a tough time reinstating so many fallen companies.

Just watched the first vid.  Here's the comment I posted in the youtube vid.

Hmmm. There are many tactical mistakes here.  Agrippa should keep tabs of the enemy's defense value (second number of the unit icon) relative to his attack value (first number of the unit icon) and not attack them head on.  Then try to surround them first before attacking the next turn.


Good production value though and entertaining.

Thanks Jomni! Just thumbed up your comment, yep I certainly have alot to learn. Though as the campaign progresses I have managed to pick up quite a few tricks :D. My only issue now is not understanding how the engineers repair bridges "I know they do it automatically" but I wish there was a way to speed it up a bit.
