Thoughts on this?
Bre -> Channel
Mar S Par -> Bur
I played this in a recent gunboat: https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?game ... #gamePanel

The game didn't go great for me, but I remain convinced this is one of the strongest defensive options, which is top priority for France in the current climate. It discourages a full 1901 attack from anyone without particularly pissing anyone off. Get that guaranteed build and hope E/G get bored, which you would need to survive against them long term anyway.

Ger made a bad call in Aut 01. Mun is imho the least attractive of the 3 available options.
If he can build A Mun in Winter01 then you cannot build F Brest. If that happens it could very well be game over right there.
I think Bur-Bel in Aut01 > your decision. if you loose Bur you still get builds in Paris+Brest.

I agree with that. Trying to make friends didn't work out. I would have made a more aggressive move to Belgium or Munich to take what I could get in retrospect.
