Don't , keep it "global"..
though you may create some more smaller territories in the west and other areas where progress was small (or none at all :s) .
i say these in begining,and now i dont have space for these insets,any way without inset these map will have almost 50 terittory.

I dont' like to see Italy, France, Belgium and Britain (and Ireland?) combined in one bonuszone/colour.
National pride was at its peak in those days... so keep them separate please, with individual bonuszones, and colours.
You don't combine Germany and Austria too , do you?
Let the territory sizes be defined by the likeliness for footfolk in those days to be able to move (quickly or rather not quickly) through it.
That means (again) looking at natural barriers (large rivers and mountain ranges) and ...railway lines !
The reason that Germany was initially so swift is that they had a larger raised army from onset, thus overwhelmed the Belgians/French -initially- and their railway transport from all kazernen from Germany to the west border.
I suppose only Britain and Germany had a large railway system/plan.... other places (France incl) were less dense or varied..so that means marching all the way..
Map: Take scissors, cut a horizontal line from left just above Paris and let it meet with a vertical scissors cut from above over the West German Border. Blow up that rectangle with fixed South-East corner Point until Britain shows only a part on the left side.
Germany never invaded England (and would not even be capable of doing so), so you won't miss Great-Britain as such on this Map (of course leaving one or 2 circles).
You then have the opportunity to dissect the west-front (;p) in many more smaller territories (and not having to make a separate minimap )
Don't forget to use the sea lanes and that having control over a sealane by an opponent means "starvation" of England/Britain!
I know that you dont like,but these is Western ally,and i dont have space to create more terittory. If i create like you say,then England will have only 3 terittory,France 4,and italy 4,and where to put Belgium with one terittory?
Austria and Germany what very large country then England and Italy or France.
Rail way? I whas thinking that these map be without any Bariers.
Aim not understand these thing with scissors.
England newer invade Germany.

qwert can we lose the exclamation marks please?
I think its a bit excessive to have all capital letters and have almost a line of exclamation marks to go with it.
What you mean?
