I cannot totally agree with the beginning. Without the wall and Genn's pride, Gilneas probably would have fallen to the Plague and the Scourge in the Third War. Now, they are still alive, and mostly human. You can say that they lost Gilneas but sometimes lore and game mechanics clash... I think they lost Gilneas because Blizzard didn't want 2 more capital cities, and they also wanted to make 1-10 experience more exciting with alot of phasing. You can argue that the result is the same, but this is another case of "because the developers and writers wanted it to be so", which is sometimes not the most logical and life-like way.

I've played through the undead starting areas and the 7th legion seem to still be occupying gilneas. At the end Crowley retreats back to Gilneas city. It seems the forsaken have only halted the alliance advance into silverpine.

It also seems that in the battle for Gilneas the Horde players begin an invasion via Forsaken ship while the Alliance players are the defenders. The battle for Gilneas seems to be about the Horde regaining a foothold in Gilneas but it does seem to be in Alliance control currently.
