The Germans in the east are really interesting. They are, of course, facing inferior forces; however, you have three commanders that all genuinely respect each other and work together, which you I don't tend to see very often when reading about military conflicts. And, they are all seemingly brilliant. Hoffman and Ludendorff were like roommates at one point in their lives, and Hindenburg is genuinely respectful of them both even though he's a legendary figure in Germany.... At one point, Ludendorff suggests moving a corp back in a meeting, and Hindenburg is said to have gently and correctly overruled him. But they don't seem to argue or have any issues with each other. It's cool to see how effectively the German army can work under fantastic commanders.
