My Strategy is to have 1st Russian Army moving by rail to join 2nd Army to cut East Prussia at Thorn and be concentrated and entrenched when Hindenburg will be there.
The main front is historical Galicia where the russians have a superiotity in Front Generals and Armies Generals working together in a perfect manner + superiority in numbers 4 Russians armies against 3 AH initially + 2/3 more armies coming/created( 9th) mid or end august.
For Turkey, i will entrenched and wait for the Turks as done historically. The Turks were mauled in winter 1915 if i remember.
I will wait for an Western allied offensive in the Dardanelles/Gallipoli and help them sending an expeditionnary force. This Gallipoli expedition was made to open a supply route to Russia and send them Artillery ammunition and other things like Rifles etc... thus i hope that this strategy/Possiblity will be done in the game so that Russia received plenty of Artillery ammunition Supply and have a possibility to create better equiped division.
The serbs will entrenched in good position and resist until ammunition is low, they had good Generals and know how to fight and had like the russians the superiority in Artillery and perhaps MG. The Austrians had mostly BRONZE modern guns with inferior range and their doctrine of fire was outdated or stupid.
The unique features of To End All Wars are explained during the opening turns of the campaign games. (or when they become available, like research in 1915).

Thank you very much in advance!

In real life, the rather confused and incompetent Russian high command didn't push the Austrians strongly enough in 1914-1915, being drawn into East Prussia for various reasons, like the need to support the French by putting pressure on Germany. But Austria-Hungary was always the weakest link in Germany's team. Their army was weak and poorly equipped (yes, they really did have BRONZE guns!) and most of their generals were more or less incompetent. I'm going to see if I can push my Russian armies deep into Hungary and destroy the Dual Monarchy, and then punch Germany into their soft underbelly.
However, I have a feeling this is probably going to be easier said than done! For the most part, the Imperial Russian army was not exactly brilliant either... I'm just hoping they suck less than the Austrians.

The three German armies in the east are enough to push the Russians back, while the west is strong enough to defend against France and even try and incursion or two into France proper. In my opinion the Moltke plan, while fascinating, is even more difficult to pull off than the Schlieffen plan because of the enormous distances between St. Petersburg and East Prussia. One more piece of general advice: DON'T UNDERESTIMATE THE RUSSIANS! They are the bane of any CP campaign, which is why so many wish to push East first.
