I'm not certain of that, the report doesn't make it specific. But it may be that its done that way precisely to prevent what you've just outlined.

To me, the German invasion of Holland seems like a bad idea. Sure, it adds to or three IPC's to Germany's pressured bank account, but at the same time opens up yet another territory from where the Allies can attack by sea. Even worse, the Americans only have a two turn journey from the US tt to Holland, instead of the normal three to Kiel. Furthermore, the battle will cost Germany some troops that she then can't use on the battlefield against France.
I'm really looking forward to the Western Front in this game, though, to see if Germany is actually able to capture Paris in every game if they pour all their resources into it, or if it is a mere game of luck there. I'm pretty sure that the Russian Front is relatively easy to win as Germany, because Russia is quite poor and her forces widely spread out.
Come on, Larry, give us France!!! :x

But can Germany afford to send an army to Moscow? It'll take them 7 turns to get back to the western front.
I'm thinking that the only viable CP strategy is Paris-Rome. I agree that Holland is a bad idea, but Switzerland would create a single front from which the two drives could support each other.
Hold the eastern front with minimum force, attacking Russia with Turkey.

Personally, I'd like to see railroads implemented in the game somehow (I have some house rules, if anyone's interested). Germany had a very robust system of railways during the war and was able to shuffle troops between fronts rather easily (well, more easily than 7 turns worth anyway :) ).
