Game Note

The map below shows how I have subdivided Spain and Western Europe into greater detail.  For game purposes, From the French industrial production, 2 of the 6 points will be allocated to Denmark, Netherlands and Belgium combined, allowing some national defence forces to be created.  These smaller countries will be activated during the French game turn.
