    July 24th, 1804.

    It has been a whirlwind few months rushing across Europe. We finally got to Paris only to lose it to the Ottomans. Now we are finally returning to Spain but, says the sargeant, possibly not to return to our fields and homes. He says there is strange trouble brewing amongst the allies . . . .
    In any case, the king has divided all the cities we took in France amongst the allies. Perhaps he thinks this will satisfy their desire for more land.

        Thanks. I've been getting a bit slack about it. I should make more effort.

          You should also try to read this in the context of the actual PBEM game (if you're not already), since Masuro is weaving some of our international diplomacy into it.

          This is the thread, from where the war diplomacy gets interesting.

              Yes, we need some more intel on the inner workings of the mad Spanish King's mind

                If I tell you what I'm doing in this story I'll be having problems in the game. There needs to be a delay.

                  I still wonder why the King gave those cities to the English, the Prussians, and the Russians. Especially the Russians. I dont think their lust for more territory will be sated with just one city. Maybe its because theyre so cold and theyre looking for warmer places to live. But then why are they looking at Sweden with wolfs eyes? Strange.
                  Anyway, Im glad the king gave away those cities. I think its our peninsular psychology. We want to feel safe and isolated behind the Pyrenees. Perhaps the king feels adrift and surrounded past the mountains.

                  Ive made a decision to leave the artillery and join the infantry. Blasting away from behind the lines seems a bit cowardly now, even though I know the artillery is necessary in warfare. My unit commander has told me to wait until were back in Spain before switching. He says I can get proper training there. Im looking forward to it.

                    I am shocked that you would think such things of your allies

                    we be faithful to the cause

                        Those serfs need to be shown what's good for them. Think of it more as gentle guidance.

                          Seems like Ferdinand made a very bad career choice joing the infantry, and has now been shipped off to Sweden, of all places

                            Possiblt he won't be happy about it. I'm waiting a bit before writing any more of the story so no plans are revealed.

                              Oh, so you have plans?

                              Sounds like a conspiracy is being hatched against the other loyal members of the Grand Alliance!
