  • Good analysis. As a first step also I feel the Peninsula Command should be in two parts ie Western and Eastern seaboards with the air and army assets suitably orbatted. ANC can form part of the Eastern seaboard. Land borders as a start seem workable but the western front also needs to be separately factored in.
