There is an Axis stratagem called "Propaganda."

There is a Soviet stratagem called "Propaganda."

Under the description of the Soviet stratagem it says as the Axis stratagem "Szorkeny."

That obvious typo in "Skorzeny" got me thinking that the description was probably wrong and should read -

As the Axis stratagem "Propaganda."

Am I correct?

Or is Soviet Propaganda actually treated differently from Axis Propaganda?

My feeling is that the designer(s) wanted the two chits to operate a little differently. But of course, I could be wrong. Sorry, it doesn't seem to help much does it?shake

Thanks for your input nonetheless.

I probably wouldn't have thought too much about this if that obvious "Szorkeny" typo weren't there. That such an obvious thing could slip through production calls everything into question.

I mean, it looks like a simple "block and copy" error to me. Copy the phrase "...as Szorkeny" (typo and all) and then forget to substitute the word "Propaganda."

In fact, absent further clarification, I'm just going to assume this is an example of slap-dash editing. Propaganda is propaganda, after all...

I think Tim is right -- the Soviet Propaganda strategem should obviously match the German Propaganda strategem.
