Britain has -3 support next turn due to deficit.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

From last turn: "...short-term they might be vulnerable to another hit in Spring, depending on the draws."

Worst. Draws. Ever. More or less.

Germany got the option to get free support by playing REs on 4-flag targets (though Russia stopped one). Britain's RE meant the Allies couldn't really stop anything, so Germany got the whole of Czechoslovakia in one go (bluffing would have risked support issues again, at this point Germany wants an early war so the Allies have to keep acquiescing as a form of elastic defence).

Only real target left is Poland, and that draws Russia into the equation as well, could get messy...
