Oh, I read that but at the beginning we started to perform the whole sequence of play. That was very stupid, the reinforcement before the first combat starts, was also very weird for us. Now, all makes sense! Thank you
Keep in mind that those reinforcements will take quite a while to reach the front - for the Germans, it's a whole turn before they can be strategically redeployed. The French have it a little "better" as the fighting gets close to Paris.
