Played Hitler's Reich in earnest tonight with my Dad.
Very enjoyable it was too with this WW2-lite but fun game.
Neither of us know the respective Events well enough to achieve best strategies but even from one play the importance of Barbarossa and control of the English Channel is obvious.
Dads Barbarossa was less than stellar which allowed me to annoy the Axis on western front.
We done virtually nothing in the Med/N.Africa fronts as all activity was in Russia and N.Europe.
Game ended in 1944 with fall of Berlin to Western Allies and Axis failure to recapture.
The problems with rule book layout remain but having played a game most things fall into place now.
All pics from early turns as I got too engrossed later
