The faces of Ivernia's senior command stared back at Gramelski in silence. "That gentlemen is the overall goal of Operation Bibliothèque" he said. "We aim for decisive results in one or two sectors of the operation but keep in mind this is not a death blow. We use the advantages the enemy has presented us with. If we follow this plan and strike at these points with overwhelming force" Gramelski said, poiting at the map, "we will put the enemy into check". Gramelski watched as a few of the Ivernish exchanged quiet words once the translator finished speaking. "we have already begun preparations for this operation gentlemen. In a few weeks, expect your regimental and brigade commands to receive their orders". It was quite true. All over Ivernia, military convoys lined the roads and troop movements were clogging the railways as Ivernish and Burgundian aircraft worked hard to handicap the enemy. Gramelski sat down as the translator finished and General Jean Pontoise stood. Pointoise took command of the Bugundian air elements recently but had been an effective administrator and acceptable strategist. "Gentlemen. Our air forces must be prepared to continue despite the recent uptick in casualties. We have continually hit railroad crossings, bridges, and roads. We have severely hampered their interior lines. For this operation, air support must continue. When this operation continues, you must fully be prepared for heavy aerial casualties as we will be running aerial missions back to back. This will allow our interior lines to operate to our advantage" concluded Pointoise who then sat down but before the translator even began to convey the message. The quiet war would be loud again soon.
