I'm getting more and more pleased with Dien Bien Phu as it is getting into shape (legionwargames.com). The game is turning out as a boxing game where both boxers are stumbling around, hurt and utterly exhausted. The bigger one is desperatly trying to produce a deciding knockout on his opponent, while despairing because he is feeling the energy draining from him. The lesser is more agile and has some very good hooks, but he is hurt and there is no more strength in his punch. He simply has to stay up and hopefully watch his enemy be the first to fall on his knees.

The tide of fortune changed between us a couple of times. It started out bad for me when I failed to evacuate fellow troops from the two outer strongpoints and they surrendered. The tide then turned to my advantage when he failed to take another strongpoint and failed to isolate it due to my constant breakthroughs into it, bringing in supply. When he rushed whatever he had on it and met my severe barrage, then I thought it was going my way. But later, I lost two important strongpoints due to sloppyness and a failed effort to break through.

VM still has enough replacement points, but he is reluctant to use them. Because bringing in new fresh rookies - scared farmers with no battle experience - dilutes the efficiency of the units. Their morale decreases, and when it is just on the threshold of turning worse, then using replacements becomes a tough decision.

French units are in bad shape. There is still another para battalion waiting in Hanoi, but getting HQ to send it relies on how many causalties I have. Monsoon is all over us and both VM and I are pitiful in our water filled trenches. Not only are our resources draining away, or should I say raining away, the number of planes with supply are fewer also. I need everything, but what is most desperate?

Who will fall into the mud first, pleading?

I have pre-ordered this game, and I am looking forward to it.

I am also looking forward to to when the re-print if Ici, c'est la France is complete, as this has been ordered too!
