Whites of there eyes 1775-1783 Campain

Thu May 12, 2011 8:51 pm

Ive been playing this scenario and a couple of others on the 1.07b patch so have upgraded to the 1.08 patch and have started this campain again,I will be playing the British against the AI at an avarage level ive still got a lot to learn.
My army is inactive in Boston at the moment but when my reinforcements turn up i intend to sail to NewYork and capture the city as soon as possible.
Canada will be reinforced as will Norfolk which i intend to hold and use as a supply base.As can be seen on the map there are several objectives in New England which are within striking distance of Boston and NewYork so they will be initial targets.
