Thank you for your kind words. The paper work was made by DintheDin. I did the assembling and the other buildings (I am so happy you like the feel of the Beijing!) Thanks a lot. (I will try to make some dirty earth-roads and add some more details next time...) Cheers

... the Americans were not the only ones who had problems with the Boxers. The Russians had also a hard time...

But the main action was on the Wall;  the Germans were obliged to retreat from their barricades on the Wall. Even the German Legation was abandoned. The Boxers burned everything!
