According to an old US army manual on leadership I have lying about the house here, along with courage, determination, poise, and loyalty, audacity provides us the basic DNA of the warrior-leader. But audacity can be a double-edged sword for some. Particularly if a leader makes an audacious move, but at the wrong time...So somewhere along the line, you'd like to see a bit of wisdom (and frankly a little luck) thrown into the above mix.

After playing nicey-nice through the Spring our own brazenly audacious leaders made some more determined moves this season:

In the West, France and England occupied their "traditional" centers, while a justifiable fear of multi-national aggression forced Germany to protect the Motherland rather than seek greater expansion. Perhaps most surprising is the number of unoccupied neutrals still to be found in Western Europe today which certainly doesn't bode well for the coming year, does it?

In the East, The Sultan of Turkey not only crushes the last remaining dissension in Bulgaria, but makes the most well timed of audacious moves--walking into Greece uncontested! Leaders will look back on this one and wonder how it ever could have happened so easily...Meanwhile the Austrians appear uncertain, but the Italians do not: marching the Alpini up through Tyrolia and then beyond. Finally, while the Russian's settle for the occupation of Rumania in the South, their invasion of Sweden fails, running into unexpected (?) opposition on the shores.

All in all, a very good turn folks!

Thanks for getting your orders all in on-time and in excellent format. No retreats are due, so let's move directly to the Winter Adjudication phase and the builds which you all have coming to you. Please have those to me by Thursday, Feb 5. If you all can get them in 24 hours, I'll publish them and get the Spring started earlier!

Diplomacy games may contain lying, stabbing, or deliberately deceiving communications that may not be suitable for and may pose a hazard to young children, gullible adults, and small farm animals.
