I managed to get a number of plays in over the holidays for this excellent SOS title and came across the following situation. Yudenich(on PG side) was in Ankara when the Bolshevik Revolution occurred. Does the removal of the front return the Strategic Sites of Ankara and Erzerum to Turkish control for National will calculation? I played that it did so, reckoning that they were no longer under Allied control.

That is the way I play it since the Russian marker is not on the board.

Rob,

Sorry for the delay. I was on a trip to the Middle East (I did travel along the Arab track for a while). National Will would be recomputed without those strategic sites lost as the Russians have abandoned them. In the rare event that the Russians exit the war and re-enter (the Bolshevik revolution precedes the Provisional revolution), those could be re-captured, but I believe the Russians return at Space 5 of the Track.

Darin,
Thanks for the clarification. I am really enjoying this particular incarnation of the SOS series. Lots of narrative and a near permanent feeeling of trouble brewing just over the next sand dune. I look forward to playing Habsburg Eclipse when it is published. Until then I shall keep trying to add to my solitary win in OT ( lucky rolls on the Offboard battles and Kaiserschlacht as the last card).
