No spoilers, please, I'm only on page 12! Maybe it's my inferior American education, but I don't recall the Great German War against Russia of 1897-1899! In fact, after the Franco-Prussian War in the early 1870's, the next German war wasn't until 1898 in East Africa and the Second Samoan War; in fact, I believe German troops did not face off against Russians until the Great War of 1914-1919!
Maybe you had realized later in your AAR that the Russian war was a mistake (historically speaking of course)? Too bad, IMHO, because it is a fascinating read! Coming off my civil war, where at the end battles I was going, "oh look, a 3500 PWR stack, how cool!" and then seeing your 25,000+ PWR stacks and Russia's not quite invincible 1.3+ million man army and feeling my jaw drop as you ingeniously engineered the AI's defeat (at Konigsburg?).
At least the Spanish-American War really existed, so it's not too unrealistic to force it earlier (for game enjoyment purposes!).
