19400801 : The British abandon, evacuate, Marseilles, and when the Axis moves in next turn it will mark the end of the Third Republic. The Italians have left Tobruk, and the LRDG troops are nearly to Tripoli, which should mean the Axis will have to use Tunis to re-enter the continent. Malta is well garrisoned as is Gibraltar, but Germans have already been sighted near the "Rock" and we are sure that Franco and his Feldgrau friends will give Gibraltar much attention. The French Fleet will disappear next turn, and the Royal navy will have to be on guard.
Where will Axis attention turn next? The Soviets show no sign of any activity, and their garrisons near the border appear in normal state. They have a non aggression pact with Germany, and appear to be depending on it. All eyes are on the German leadership to guage their next move. Is Great Britain ready for an invasion?
