We had quite a weekend last Saturday with Operation Spring Boot and then our Rat Chat which was held on Sunday. The video in this article for the RAT Chat in its entirety. Campaign #172 rolls along at the 40 day mark. The map has gone back and forth with the Axis making the latest push. We have had so many great combined arms battles taking place this map! It's been amazing.

Operation Spring Boot
If you missed last Saturday's Operation Spring Boot then you missed a good one! This was another High Command led liver server event which showcased the best of our game. High intensity, combined arms battles with air, sea and land and paratroop operations. The Allied side was led by CinC Justinrot and the Axis side was led by CinC Googs. Our player pop was sky high and each side had multiple attack and defense objectives with something to do for every player.
Campaign #172 rages on at the 40 day mark. The Axis have made a push over the past 2 weeks and currently own 64% of the map and the Allies own 36%. The Americans landed about two weeks ago and have had difficulty in stopping the Axis advance into France. All hands return to the front and engage the enemy! See you on the battlefield!!
