Pardon for Brittish soldiers

When this came to me from a friend, you start to wounder how they are supposed to pull this off?

LONDON - British soldiers who were executed by the military for cowardice during World War I will be pardoned, the Defense Ministry said Tuesday, following a lengthy campaign by the family of one such soldier.

Defense Secretary Des Browne said the government would seek parliamentary approval to issue pardons for the 306 soldiers who were executed.

As the sender put it: Will they digg them up and tell them that they are free and can go home now?

Until next update,
this is war corspondant


From a war thorn Europe.

Mon Falcone, Odinese and the southern front.

Sept I 15, Southern Front.

News spread around the Italian border of the agressive attacks from the Austrian-Hungarians. This made the high command withdraw some units from the front lines to strenghten the defences in the back areas around Izonso river battle areas.
Unfortunatly the withdraw resulted in a somewhat chaotic deployment of the forces. This left the BTag unit alone in the middle between Mon Falcone and Odinese, exposed by a heavy attack by Austrian-Hungarian forces that had been reinforced by strong elite units, from the Kaisers own jaegers.

The 5:1 battle resulted left no defending Italian forces after the attack and Austrian-Hungarian forces marched in after combat to claim the battlefield.
Later on an second agressive move left an other 30-40km of Italian soil in Austrian-Hungarian hands and a responding Italian force far away.

An Italian attack in the northern borderfront resulted in heavy Italian losses, in the neighbourhood of 7-8000 soldiers got killed or where take prisoners. Wich in contrast to the meer 2-2500 Austrian-Hugarian losses meant a heavy dent in the commanding general Cardornas good recordbook soo far.
A quick march had taken the Italian forces to just under the nose of the Austrian-Hugarian forces that unfortanatly, have had the time to dig in and reinforce there positions.
The long planed attack att sunrise was turned into a blood shead by dusk as the retreating Italians hastly made it back to thier own lines.

It seems that the general staff suffers from late summer illness as they have contributed nothing to the battles in this area. Even the great general Cardorna has faild to lead in a forceful manner.

What might be a somewhat positive note is that the heroic Italian Air Force, Regio Aeronautica, manage to bomb the factories so much that they seased to produce for this turn.

This ends the report from the southern front.

Most of September I 1915 Western Front

For the French the production turn came as a relief as the replacements were badly needed.

In the most critical part of the western, the south, the French left Dijon fortress to it's destiny trying to retreat the troops from being encircled through a thin corridor back to own lines.
The Germans did not react even if the were plenty of HQ and even Falkenheyn.
So the French could continue to move away from risk of encirclement.
In the German turn however they got hit hard. A furious 3 hex attack supported by lots of recon, a fighter squadron, gas engineers and with some help from the tactical genius of Falkenheyn resulted in a 1 DH, 1 HX and one DR. And the DR result was against a completely encircled corps which got totaly annihilated, except for for some retreating soldier getting back to thelines through special replacements.

French retreated in the central part of the western front from behind Meuse river to the Seine.
The Germenas reacted somewhat moving forward some corps and in the German turn they moved in more corps and dug in beside the French lines.

In ther northern part the Brits made their part of the frontline one hex longer.
Question is how long will it take before the northern France will become a part of Great Bretagne sorry Britain.
The German did som reorganizations which made their lines stronger.

The next time we'll see if the French will react, especially at the two hex hole in their lines in the south. And if not then will the Germamns be brave enough to exploit the hole?
