Just a couple of tips, if you want them...

Going to Spain in your opening is never a good idea - sure, you pick up the extra center, but you also lose a lot of momentum. Mar-Pie or Mar-Bur are better moves.

Par-Pic is good if you've sent Mar-Bur, but if Mar has gone anywhere else, then Burgundy is the better choice - it gives you the option to block me out of Munich or go to Belgium, whereas Picardy can only go to Belgium - convoying it over to London takes one of your armies completely out of action during a time where it's needed in Germany.

If you send your fleet north, stopping off in London (as you did) is a great move, but it needs to go to North Sea and then into one of Denmark or Norway on the next turn. Sending it back to English Channel to make the convoy is a bad idea because it uses up two units (Brest and London) for two turns, and doesn't really achieve anything. The real battlegrounds on FvA are St Petersburg, Munich/Berlin, and Tunis, so they're where you need to focus your forces early - you can pick up Edinburgh/Liverpool later in the game without any problems because Austria is never going to get there.

Finally, in S03 you had the right idea - letting me back into Munich so that you could take Kiel behind me was a fantastic move - but you could have made it even better by moving Burgundy-Ruhr, Paris-Burgundy to put three units on Munich instead of 2. Walking Picardy all the way around Burgundy made it take way too long to get to the frontline.

I also wanted to say, I loved the convoy to Tuscany in A03. Fantastic move, although too much else had gone my way for that to recover your position.
