The Chinese are really hard to get your brain wrapped around when first playing Red Blizzard. But remember these basic rules of thumb:
Plan you attack strategy and stick to it throughout the game unless you are facing disaster.
The American must gain range to really be effective. A long running approach by the Chinese will only end one way. So, plan your charge into American lines with as short an approach as is possible. Move the Chinese units in UNISON making sure they cover each other closely.
Ignore causalities just keep moving forward. Get in close and fight only when right next to your American opponent.
Forget the artillery and tanks, kill infantry.
I hope this helps you Kerry. Thank you for the wonderful email!
