Have you already read this thrilling Field of Glory II narrated AAR featuring the last attempts of the Western Roman Empire to preserve its sovereignty? Kudos to user A Human Being  for such nice work!

From the AAR description:

"A narrative centered on the Field of Glory II shuffle battles, being made in custom battles that are not part of the campaign, focused on fictional events but with real macro events from the end of the life of the Emperor Majorian until the end of the Western Roman Empire. Accompanying the plot of Domitian Natta, and his commanders in the face of this decline."

Here's below a little taste of this grand-scale AAR or read here for the full entry

Chapter I: Legion XVII Gallic
 
 
It was a cloudy afternoon near Lugdunum, where the troops were encamped, suddenly the soldiers were seen on the road, the tuba touched as the soldiers turned to look at the new soldiers arriving, in the front there were some men on horses, perceptibly the commander of these troops. Until at some point some of them descend from their horses while their troops begin to rest, they follow a few yards to a tent with 2 guards outside.
 
The commander of the troops stationed there let the men in, the first gives him a letter.
 
As he holds it, he says, "So ... you would be Lívio Balba, and that outside the Legion would be Galician?"
 
"Yes," said Lívio. He continued, "I was sent by the Master of Soldiers Egidio with the legion, to support the limits."
 
"Here you say it, and what did you bring with you?" Asked the local commander.
 
"He brought committees and an auxiliary cavalry." With a pause,Lívio spoke again, "And also came Sétio Nerva and Aelio Pulcro."
 
"Great, and are you aware that this defense is crucial? If he were under control Egídio would not send a legion, "said Domitian, the local commander.
 
Aelio raised his voice, "We are aware of the situation, it is well delighted, so we have not been placed in command of the legion, you Domitian, continue in command."
 
With his hand on his chin and looking at the side of the tent, Domitian said, "I see, the two defeats I have suffered, and followed, were the cause of this, they want me to show that I am not totally expendable."
 
"A change of command can now make matters worse, Egídio, and probably the emperor already knows of his defeats, after General Felix knows that you are the next in the command line, still here, too, because the invading the barbarians are not over, and you are the closest commander to the enemy. "
 
"My life depends on the military success on this frontier, probably or I will be in charge of another position for the empire, perhaps a more peaceful province, if there is one at the moment." Domitian continued, "Well, organize the troops, the barbarians are probably close by tomorrow, and send scouts to the north, at the moment we have few ineffectives. "
 
"Yes, sir," said the three newly arrived commanders.

WarPlan Dev Diary #1 - Introduction

Monday, June 10, 2019

This story starts out when a 15 year old kid was introduced to the game Rise and Decline of the Third Reichfrom Avalon Hill back in 1982. A friend taught me the game in a learn the rules and watch me exploit your lack of knowledge method. He would pull out convenient rules when it suited him and didn’t tell me rules that helped me. He thoroughly kicked my ass by 1942 as the Axis as I had little clue as to what I was doing. For most people this would only encourage them never to play the game again. Instead I became fascinated.

Since then I have played just about every game that has involved WW2 on a grand strategy scale. If I didn’t play it I at least read the rules of the game to understand the system.
