Re: [eia] cossacks

    Since more than one person has commented on this, apparently my purpose wasn't clear.  I was in no way trying to second guess or otherwise criticize Jim's orders.  They seem perfectly fine to me.  I was simply trying to remind everyone (myself included) about how cossacks work.  That's it.  My apologies if it seemed to anyone like I thought there was a problem with Jim's orders.

Well, moving a corps there did open up the supply line to Minsk.
