CP#58 Operation Alberich Originally ALBERICH. It took a certain amount of time and preparations to complete both the fortified Hindenburg Line, to which the German Army would successfully fall back in February/March 1917, and the methodical destruction of all usable facilities in the abandoned area. I therefore chose to make this event applicable only in spaces with a CP Trench 2.

This German planned withdrawal was easily claimed by the Allied propaganda as a great victory, as it lead indeed to unprecedented territorial gain. For this reason I consider any consequently aborted MO to be satisfied.
