Can generic cards like Build Army/Navy or Land/Sea Battle be used by the controlling player on Chinese or French forces? The rules seem to say no and that's the way we played it last night, but just wanted to be sure.

You are correct. The card must specifically reference China or France.

Yeah, only cards that specifically reference China or France can allow you to do anything with Chinese and French units (opponents can use generic Battles on Chinese and French units, but Chinese and French units can only be built or used to battle with cards that specifically say that they do so).

It was super fun. We played with both expansions. The Axis finally won in the end but, it was a come from behind win. The UK managed to invade Germany three times but got driven out each time. Japan was the big point scorer running completely amuck in the east for most of the game till the Soviets drove them out of China. The game went the full length with the Axis ahead by 28 points at the finish. France was mostly a non issue in the West after the start of the game, but China hung on for a bit a scored quite a few points for the allies.

QMG has been one of the most played games in our group for over a year now, but we haven't tired of it yet. This new expansion adds so much to the game. The new cards and their interactions are really intriguing and add new and interesting strategies. The fact that you have to discard a card every turn or lose a point makes for some really difficult decisions and did add a little to the length of the game. Although to be fair that may of had to do with our unfamiliarity with the new decks.

I highly recommend this expansion.

All cards feature flags [sometimes not very clearly] that indicate on whom they are used.
