Finally, battles break out in the fall

Year two of the continuing pursuit of control of Europe:

1902 saw Germany take and lose Belgium. It saw Italy attempt to support a move by Germany that didn't occur. And it saw battles around the English Channel and several fights for Galicia.

Turkey supported Austria's push into Russia, while Russia moved into Germany supported by England. England lost Belgium to Germany, but then took it back with France's aid. Austria attacks Italy, but has no gains there. Have alliances been solidified? Perhaps. For now. Have enemies been made? You bet.

Supply Center final count:
6 -- Austria
5 -- England
5 -- France
4 -- Germany
4 -- Italy
5 -- Russia
5 -- Turkey
with Turkey to build one and Germany to disband one.

Again, you can all follow along with the public information here, at game sabgtest.

And anyone who uses NIN's version of Hurt should be reminded of the words of Trent Reznor on hearing the Johnny Cash Version. "That used to be my song." (But if you want to put "The Only Time" by NIN on instead, I'll forgive you).

I actually did list it as Johnny Cash before remembering it was a NIN song prior to the Best Cover Ever Made.
