Ed Menzel wins Waterloo 2017-18 email tournament. Ed defeated last years champion, Marty Musella. Ed took the PAA with a bid of 6. The PAA followed the typical strategy sacrificing small delay units while waiting for reinforcements to enter the game. Three French attacks during the middle of the first day, resulted in exchanges. A 3pm PAA counterattack resulted in the elimination of several French cavalry units in the Tilly Corridor. On the French 5pm turn, they launched several attacks including against doubled defenders on the Quatre Bras heights. The result was yet another exchange as well as an infantry soak off loss. On the next turn, the French attacked Steinmetz undoubled at 2-1 once again resulting in an exchange. With heavy losses, French prospects did not look good. On the 7am turn of the second day, they launched six 2-1 and 1-2 attacks trying to recover. Alas lady luck continued to treat Marty badly as the French took heavy losses. At that point Marty conceded. Further tournament details are available at http://watgame.com/.
