It seems like the resulting opportunity for an enemy counteroffensive would make you want to avoid asking for one unless your front was about to fall apart. But in that case I would expect your opponent to turn down the request.

Rarely do you see a lull in AW, although I have seen them in later stages of the campaign. Other games in the series have mandated lulls and even non-mandated can be advantageous to both sides.

In some cases I have seen a mutual agreement to conduct a lull, of for no other reason than both players know they don't have any major actions planned and both players were willing declare a lull if for no other reason than to speed play.

...if I may add, the German player usually welcomes a lull so when an Allied player needs one it rarely gets turned down.

Good point, in couple of games where I was the German and the Allied player wanted a lull, I definitely went for it. In both cases, it ended up being more worthwhile for the Germans than for the Allies.
