Now then gents im playing EA again on the 3.4.202 patch,Im the Axis in this one and my opponent Tran is Allied,I have decided to take the extra troops while my opponent decided against the extend maginot line option.
My first turns were used to prepare for the invasion of Poland i sent 2 Infantry Corps by sea transport to East Prussia while my Panzer and Motorised forces will spearhead the invasion from the western borders supported by infantry,Below is the map of the first weeks action the Poles despite being pounded by the Luftwaffe held up well but suffered heavy losses so week 2 should be a little easier for the Whermacht.

A much better turn for the Axis this time the losses the Poles suffered last turn enabled me to destroy and overun many Polish infantry corps and reach the outskirts of Warsaw, although i still had some turn left my hard marching 3rd army could not attack Warsaw and my 1st Pzr Army needs to refuel before the assault begins so the Poles survive another week.
France and Great Britain have declared war on Germany i will deal with them later although i am already railing troops west from Poland as the campain there is almost complete.

Turn 6 Warsaw falls the campain for Poland ends and German units prepare to move west.The French army has being quiet so im not expecting any cross border raids and will rest and refit my army before my next campain starts.

We move on to turn 37,The end of 1939 saw Norway invaded and captured by the Germans while the Soviet Union attacked Finland but made little headway.Winter struck then stopping all operations until spring,My Germans are camped on the Dutch/Belgian border.
The Belgians have allowed French & British troops to enter there country but they shall be dealt with,Im using the TO attack the Low countries so will have a shock bonus for two turns starting next turn.Here is a map of the starting positions.

Turn 39 March 24/1940 The invasion continues with German forces capturing Brussels and Amsterdam forcing the surrender of both the Netherlands and Belgium,Also significant damage has been inflicted upon the French army this should make the second phase of the assault on the west Fall Gelb much easier.

Thanks for starting this AAR. I'm glad to see your reporting again, always liked your choice of images and summaries.

Did you guys really do 40+ turns of EA in a couple of weeks ?

Please keep up the AAR (if not that killer pace of turns).

Turn 47 France surrenders and Vichy France is formed although none of the units are active until the Allies attack them,My plans for now are to rest and refit my forces in the west and continue the campain in the western desert and plan attacks on some of the Med islands as there are extra DAK troops available for there capture also plans are being drawn up for an attack on the United Kingdom before the summer is out,Shown below are my infantry losses so far.

Turn 63

The Yugoslavs have surrendered and the Axis southern forces plan there invasion of Greece,The DAK and the Italian 10th Army have stopped there advance to recover and build up supplies.
The long awaited invasion of the British Isles has begun after a succesfull initial landing the attack on London has begun i appear to have caugh them by suprise as London is lightly defended but i dont think for a minute that will last.

Probably light defense due to UK surrendering after 'BIRMINGHAM' falls, eh? Tho there seems to be reason to believe that you've really caught them with their drawers down, Ian!

"Surrender
The United Kingdom surrenders following the loss of Birmingham, and small, weak Pro-Axis forces will be deployed in the UK. About a year after the surrender, regular German coastal defenses and naval guns will have been built in most of the ports."


62,44 (London)
This will cause a 20% drop in Allied replacements for about eighteen months

62,39 (Birmingham)(5) Allied loss
Loss of this hex leads to the surrender of the United Kingdom, after a 1-4 turn delay. Some guerillas, land, air and naval units will fight on (‘We shall never surrender’ - Churchill)

No surrender just yet my opponent seemed to think defending the north of England was a priority hence the reason London is lightly defended ive spoken to my opponent as i wondered if they where all sent to North Africa but they are in the UK just in the wrong place

I have been folowing the AAR here. Keep on posting and if you could with the turn number could you put the date in so I could get an idea of the time frame. I am playing the same game solo until I get used to ToawIII again after several absent years. Europe Aflame is a cool game.

Hey Guys sorry for the delay in posting on this AAR have just been so busy but the AAR will resume in the new year with the British clinging on in the UK the Axis stalled at El Alamein and the Soviet Union declaring war on the Axis (good move by my opponent as this stops my Axis getting the barbarossa shock bonus 1941 should be an interesting year i need to finnish off the Brits and turn on the east with a vengence,not sure how the desert campain will plan out as this is now a sideshow.

Ian
