Sorry the game is still underway ive just been really lazy about posting updates. Its also been a grind, and after the turns are completed im exhausted.


Here is Axis Europe. The battle of britian currently rages, the UK has larger airforce than germany (on the western front, currently the luftwaffe is split between two fronts), but alot of it is light bombers, early spitfires, and night bombers which have had a minimal impact this far.

Now that Ive noticed engineers can repair bombed cities, im going to start putting engineers in my AA units that ive placed in every city and important hex in europe have have begun filling up with Heavy Flak. Originally just turkish guns, but now german factories are producing them as well. Theyve had great effect so far. If they dont shoot something down, they at least reduce significantly the impact of bombing.

So far I have yet to have one even lose much readiness, so thats a good sign.

However these guns are expensive, we'll see if its the right strategy to persue building so many of them. Who knows I may be using more production on AA guns than id lose if I just let them bomb away.

I havent had to spend any PPs on night fighters or radar yet because of the heavy flak, thats a bonus. Those are fairly expensive to tech up properly, while the heavy flak seems fairly effective at level 1.

Since greece has fallen, the slavic armies are able to move on to Turkey to help Kemal keep the allies at bay. Some very large air battles have taken place over turkey, and now with advanced german light armor entering the arena, things have hit a stalemate where before I was losing ground. I expect to be able to push back in the area by next year.

The US enters the war. Thats bad. Things are about to get challenging.

Though Ive had sub patrols off their coast for a while, and what I saw didnt alarm me. They have a good number of factories, though all on the east coast should I ever brazen in the atlantic, and they havent reorganized their military, I didnt see any advanced units in new england, they dont appear to have annexed anyone, or have moved any troops to or from their out lying territories.

Surely these things will be corrected, but its just good they werent before they entered the war. A huge fleet prepared already off the coast of england would be terrifying, but fortunately I know that isnt so.

Oh yeah heres the picture.

In Italy, things are getting back to normal after France falls, Marseille hung around for 3 more turns than expected, making it the last french mainland city to fall. The italians played a critical roll in the fall of france, Ernie had prepared a very good defense of paris, but let himself get thinned out sparring with the Italians in the south. Italy annexed both Spain and Switzerland, and was able to spread out the forces of the french a bit, with the help of a good number of Tankettes, the french forces on the southern border with spain, eventually got into a match they couldnt keep winning without weakening themselves elsewhere. A good solid punch to take the southern Alps and Italy wasnt going to be dislodged again from french territory. With inevitable war of attrition turning to the axis, it was just a matter of time before a breakout occured. That was the Italians in this reality, where they broke through from spain and the alps, cutting frances southern region off from the north for a critical month. French forces were forced to respond southwardly, and the armored claw of the panzergrenadiers pushed on to paris. After months of careful advance, France falls without evacuating hardly any of its forces. France fought to the last drop, there was no phony war in our reality.

The big winners here were the Italians, who picked up 16k production points from France, leaving only a few northern cities, and paris, in german hands.

I had intended this to really be Italys game, and it seems to be happening, I have enough PP production now Italy wont fall terribly behind in important technology, and can hopefully do something to free the med from allied hands. After that who knows.

One big descision was to not send any Italian troops to Greece, this weakened germany elsewhere, but I was confident it was worth it to have all those Italian forces against france.

Ive been drastically slowed down in Russia because of this, and the threat from the west pins the western german armies in defensive potitions in Madrid and Paris. So no help is coming immediately.

The panzergrenadiers and a new panzer corp are headed east though, but will have to finish training before being sent into combat, but it will add a clear advantage in the area.

Now the Italian army marches on Granada, to capture Gibraltar and seal off the Med from reinforcement to the beleagured allied fleet, which is caught in a huge naval skirmish off the coast of north africa.


Over 15 german submarines, and whole of the Italian navy, including the Dorea, have pinned the english fleet at Malta, along the coast line of Tripoli. Battles continued over several days and are still continuing. While horribly outnumbered the expert british sailors are putting up a near 1:1 fight.

In bad news for the british, german uboats intercepted a large destroyer flotilla headed either to the med, or southern africa, spotted by italian planes, over 60 german submarines engaged the less than 20 ships, and sank them to the man.

This represents the greatest loss of life among the british navy in its history, since only 117 prisoners were able to be pulled from the waters of the atlantic by german uboats desperate to save the lives of the brave sailors. Even at war, this tradegy tugs heart strings high into the Riechstags upper echelons.

In Japan, Imperial forces continue the push to knock out the chinese. Around 60,000 chinese soldiers are captured as Sian falls after being encircled for two months, and sieged.

The death bell is ringing for china, and 200 new Marine II companies are railed to HQ staging areas behind the lines, also are 6 new BDEs of Artillery IIIs, the first time Arty IIIs have set foot on the chinese mainland since Ernie's air attack and mass infantry charge knocked out the 6 that came ashore with the SNLF forces near Hangchow.

Only Chengtu and Chungking remain as industrial centers that can support the chinese war effort, once those are captured, Imperial forces will clear what remains of their chinese enemies, and prepare for the greater war with its axis allies.

So far this fact is unknown to the allies for all intents and purposes, and Japans diplomatic shielding has remained in place, to prevent any nasty surprises while Japan fights its land war in asia.

Heres the brutal situation of the chinese.

Jan 1940-Allied turn

-USSR: The Axis offensive against the Motherland has stalled. There are a few skirmishes ans air attack with some losses for both sides. The Soviet army is being expanded, as losses are much smaller than production. The far East is being reinforced against the Japanese threat
-France: nothing to report....
-GB: The strategic bombing of German cities goes on. Now the targets were shifted to U-Boats factories in Hamburg. The situation in Gibraltar is very dangerous and the British are prepared to fight to the last man. In the mediterranean, the RN achieved a great vitory against the Italian fleet, sinking at least three Battleships, three cruisers and 6 destroyers. Long range torpedo bombers produced in the new India factory are being sent to Egypt. Hopefully, the med will become a British lake even if Gibraltar falls. In Turkey, the Germans are starting to roll back the British advance, but new units are arriving.
-USA: No major actions, production was increased and Gibraltar was reinforced with some Rifles e a few dive bombers. Hawaii was also reinforced
-China: endgame is near

Europe - The battle of Britian heats up as hundreds of planes on both sides clash along the French and German coast and over England as well.

Italian forces move to the Iberian penisula to push the allies out of Spain and annex portugal. In Turkey, a stalemate has settled as assets from the attack on Greece have arrived at the front lines. Also an industrial upgrade is purchased.

The stalemate against Russia continues, as air and artillery assets duel along the 1000 mile wide front.



Asia - Japan clears another Chinese city under encirlement and moves its forces in position for some of the final blows against China.

USSR: Infantry losses increased but they are still well below replacement rate.Our airbase in Turkey is threatened by German land troops. Soviet aircraft inflicted moderate losses to one German infantry division. More troops are being sent to Far East

GB: A terrible turn, with massive loss of aircraft. We lost air battles everywhere. We failed to gain air superiority over Turkey and our night bombers were shot down like flies over Hamburg. We also lost one entire fleet in the Med, as German submarines attacked the survivors of the Sea battle against the Italian fleet. At least we could reinforce Gibraltar again

USA: War production is increasing but the enemy submarine activity is preventing us from ferrying troops to Europe. Some of our new P-40´s arrived at London and they will soon see action against German air forces. We are increasing production of Transport ships, as losses will likely be heavy.

China: nothing to report

Europe -

The Panzer Grenadiers hit the soviet front with a bang, routing two soviet armored corps and a 1940 Rifle Division, with the help of the Czechs and Austrians that had been holding the line south of the Pripyat Marshes, along with heavy luftwaffe bombardment.

This starts an offensive into Ukraine in attempt to capture Odessa and the soviet regions west of the Don. Eventual target, Baku, and the encirclement of soviet forces in Turkey, or at least their withdrawl.

Bombing and bombardment continues in Turkey.

A large air battle results in very few losses for both sides in the skies over the UK. Small fuel tanks give the Me109s very little time over target.

A number of US transports are sunk trying to bring men and material to the UK.

Also Gibraltar is taken by a combination of Italian CCCN, and Spanish units of Franco's Guardia Civil.

Heres a picture of spanish forces, the units with the yellow stripe, holding the region of Granada.

Armies Fulgore, and Maste, the orange and the black stripes respectively, regroup and prepare for the invasion of Portugal.

German Panzer Divisions with the help of a Turkish light armored division and two infantry divisions crack through the Arabian Allied lines and head for Lebanon. The armored units split and begin pressing the multicultural Allied army in the flanks. Turkish, Romanian, Bulgarian, and Germans, face off against Arabians, British, Canadians, Russians, French, Indians, and South Africans.

Two Unterboot squadrons simultaneously dealt the Royal Navy a blow when subs snuck through anti sub nets, and sunk over 10 ships in Alexandria, and 3 ships at Glasgow naval harbor, over 1,000 miles apart.

The Med is being contested strongly now, and the British know with Uboat squadrons entering the med with impunity, and no hope of reinforcement that their days are numbered.

Italy: March 4th 1940

After meeting with the Prime Minister of Portugal, a tearful government folds and is annexed peacefully by Italy.

Armies begin ferrying across from Gibraltar to Fez. Also Militia is raised in the number of Portuguese ports around the world that are now in Italian control. Covert special forces are dropped in South Africa and begin to cause problems for the British forces stationed there.

West Timor is captured by Portuguese militia in East Timor.

Allied turn

-USSR: Soviet troops suffered heavy losses in the German offensive, but they were able to destroy a large number of German tanks. The spearhead of German offensive took massive losses, more than 300 tanks and 100 halftracks are destroyed.
-France: A large German surface unit was seen in the French coast. The remains of France´s surface fleet were ordered to raid the enemy unit. They were able to sink 8 destroyers and one light cruiser, but lost more shisd than the Germans in the battle. Anyway, the Admiralty now considers most surface ships obsolete, and is putting resources in submarines and ASW forces...so....
-British: The Admiralty is shocked by the loss of almost the entire Mediterranean fleet to submarines. It seems that surface fleets are obsolete. Lots of resouces are being placed on submarines and ASW platforms. The raid on Glasgow wasn´t cheap for the Germans, as aircrafts from the Coastal command destroyed every boat that took part in the action. Overall 8 submarines were sunk.
-Big news. In a suprise attack, the British were able to create a second Front in Europe. More than 10000 Riflemen disembarked in Brest, and now the city is in British hands. The RAF bombed the already mentioned surface fleet and the troops closer to Brest, with mediocre results.
-ME Front: The British HQ in ME hopes that the arrival of new reinforcements to the Turkish Front will help to contain the German offensive. At least three infantry divisions and a few light tanks arrived to Beirut. One armoured unit close to Beirut took moderate losses but the Axis air units destroyed a number of RAF aircrafts without losses to themselves.
-North African Front: British units close to Tripoli are starting to retreat. The massive submarine fleet that destroyed our ships in Alexandria were located but it´s too

USA:-American air forces from Santo Domingo started to bomb Venezuela. One German submarine was sunk by our long range patrol aircraft off the Canadian coast

USSR: Soviet casualties and mounting and now they exceed the replacement rate. The Germans are suffering losses too, but they are much smaller. No major advances were made, however.
France: French air and naval forces hit the troops surrounding Brest and also sank two German submarines
GB: A terrible event happened. About 200 planes surrendered to the enemy (???, whith their pilots bailing out while attacking an hex....the enemy had no planes covering the area. The event is being investigated. Our ASW forces are achieving some success against German submarines, sinking 4 of them, but many patrol aircraft were lost too....In Turkey, the lines were more or less stabilized after the arrival of new forces to the front. Not much to report.
USA: Agressive ASW patrols resulted in 3 German submarines sunk, but we also lost 3 submarines in a battle against enemy U-Boats. Air raids against Venezuela continue
China; Chungking will be lost, it will starve the Chines army and that´s the end for China....
A notice: Brest holds and was reinforced with heavy equipment.

Update Aug 1940

USSR: German offensive in the South stalled after massive tank losses. Soviet forces also suffered heavy losses in men. Germany gained some territory but no important objectives. Soviet forces are able to defend themselves but still lack the resources for a counterattack.
France: French ships sink have been fighting the German submarines with some success. The German U-Boat losses increased a lot in the last turns.
GB: RAF has assumed a defensive stance and is unable to break the stalemate in the air. On the other hand, the Coastal Command and the new ASW surface forces are achieving some success against enemy U-Boats. In Turkey, the arrival of armoured and air reinforcements has stopped the German offensive. Beirut remains in British hands.
USA: More units are joining the air campaign against Venezuela. Italian troops in Africa attempted to take Dakar but were repulsed by American troops.
China: China is defeated we wonder what Japan will do next.

Aug-1940

As bombur said, the offensive to take Odessa and Kiev has faltered under soviet air and artillery attacks. Most troops involved were from minor nations, supported by a panzergrenadier army, but once those took heavy damage the offensive was unable to continue. Some land has been taken, so our next thrust will be a bit deeper, but for now is halted.

In the north, engineers try and cross the Dvina, and build bridges, but are unable to set concrete in the marshes. An offensive towards Smolensk is also halted before it even begins.



Italians haven taken Gibraltar and pour into western Africa to attempt to take Egypt and Morocco.



Japan takes the last city in china, and turns its attention to the north, and to the south.

October 1940

-USSR: The VVS became a formidable killing machine. Soviet tatctical aircraft escorted by lots of fighters are inflicting heavy casualties on German troops. Neither side, however, is willing to start a land offensive, althought Soviet intel is reporting large concentrations of German troops North of Pripet marshes.

-France: nothing to report

-UK: The RAF suffered massive losses in Turkey, to German fighters, while lots of patrol aircraft were shot down by German submarines. To make things even worse, no submarines were destroyed. The situation in Turkey seems to have reached a stalemate, neither side being able to advance. British submarines entered the Mediterranean and sank an Italian cruiser.

USA: USA troops are being sent to Africa, to reinforce Dakar, threatebed by Italian troops. The Italians suffered some losses and were forces to retreat. It´s said the Americans used a new bomber to support these attacks. This bomber seems to be faster and better armoured than every medium bomber in service around the world. In Venezuela, the air offensive against the fascist government goes own. With the Venezuelan air force destroyed, PBY´s are bombing the local oilfields with impunity.

Germany: Fortifications south west of Odessa are destroyed with the help of Italian rocket artillery. A panzer corp and combat engineers in half tracks break through the fortified lines and approach the outskirts of Odessa.

The battle of britian is beginning to stale mate. Turkey is a stalemate as well. German forces continue to try and break into the soviet union and do some damage, but so far the only place theyve had real success recently is in the Atlantic. German Uboat forces still cost the allies a pretty penny month after month.


Italy: A new Italian army helps destroy fortifications in the Ukraine, and then move south to head into Turkey. Forces moves across north africa, destroying french outposts, and linking up with the forces in Tunisia. A new drive into Eygpt is started.

Also Italian forces in west Africa have met troops of the United States, and rail heads are being constructed along the Algerian and Morroccan coast to bring new forces to bear against the Americans.

German uboats try to cut off reinfocements.


Japan:

With China conquered, Japan;s forces reorganize, build coastal guns for the new ports that they own, and begin preparations for all out war against the Allies and USSR.

Feb 1941

USSR. The new German offensive is much more dangerous than the former ones. Soviet attack aircraft took massive losses to enemy fighters, so it wasn´t possible to inflict heavy casualties to enemy armoured formations. Odessa was evacuated and a new defensive line will be formed. The Soviets are realizing that it will be impossible to stop the Germans without a second front.

France: nothing to report.

GB: In the last months our ASW units inflicted massive losses to German submarines. We hope the U-Boat threat will be finished by the end of 1942. The Germans seem to be depleting every other front to help their east offensive, so the RAF started raids against occupied France again. Results are mixed with about 2:3 losses, favoring the Germans. Anyway, the Luftwaffe lost at least 170 fighters in the last 2 months(17SFT´s). German troops also retreated from Beirut and even the German submarines are hard to be found in the Med. We are locating big Italian formations about 400kn west from Cairo. British aircraft are bombing them. British armoued formations also defeated Italian/Saudi troops, taking control of Bahrain oilfields. The big question is: what will happen if Japan enters the war?

USA: Venezuela was occupied by American troops, we hope it will create fuel troubles to Germany. The USN also occupied the Azores without resistance (the Island was ungarrisoned). It will allow us to sen long range aircraft to Liberia and will make life miserable to German U-Boats that blocked reinforcements to Africa in the last three months.

China: Chiang Kai Shek formed a government in exile. The British promised them a new army if Japan enters the war, but for now they don´t want to provoke the Japanese.

May 1938

-USSR: In the South, situation is grim. A big German army is taking position in the west bank of the Dnieper river. The VVS took massive losses in the last months and cannot mount the offensives that crushed the first German offensive. In the North, Soviet troops achieved minor victories against Finnish forces. Stalin warned the allies that the Souther Front could collapse if a second front in Europe doesn´t materialize in the next months.

-France: A renewed Free France air force launched a few raids against German forces in occupied France. While these raids didn´t achieve too much theyr provided RAF with much needed recon

-Great Britain: A quiet turn for GB. The arrival of the new Level VI fighters shifted the balance of the air war in favor of the RAF. It also seems the Germans shifted most of their forces to the East. British fighters and bombers are now targeting the German AA defenses as a preparation for an upcoming invasion of continental Europe. The U-Boat threat seems to be gone....for now. In the ME Front the German and Italian troops retreated from Beirut. In the Mediterranean, British submarines are starting to harass the Italian supply lines, while the RAF is pounding Italian land forces, inflicting moderate losses to them. Matilda tanks are arriving at the Front in great numbers.

-USA: As we expected, the capture of the Azores resulted in a big headache for German U-Boats, as it´s now possible to ferry heavy bombers and Patrol aircraft to Dakar. The Kriegsmarine lost 20 Submarines in the last two months, althought our PBY´s also took heavy losses from submarine flak. A big German Army is moving towards Dakar, but the new American heavy bombers are being used against these forces. It seems German and Italian troops lack air cover to fight in all fronts.

-In the diplomatic front, Thailand, worried with the growing threat from Japan, signed a mutual defense threat with Great Britain (after a small....regime change). The allies made an offer to Japan, promising not to intefere with the recent annexation of China if Japan remains neutral.

June-1942

Diplomatic Front: Japan answered to our generous offer by declaring war on the allied powers. Japanese forces made their first move and they are already at the gates of Manila, Vladivostok and Saigon. Many British and French submarines were caught in their ports and lots of these ships were lost.

USSR: The South Front is about to collapse, as Germany troops crossed the Dnieper. Attempts to mount a counterattack resulted in massive losses for USSR, both in land and air. In the North, the Manernheim line was destroyed, but the Finish army was able to repulse a large Soviet assault. In the Far East, Soviet forces and American infantry are trying to defend the city. Soviet naval bombers sank some destroyers.

France: Saigon is close to be surrounded, a big force of more than 500 Japanese tanks was detected.

GB: Churchill is unhappy with the results of RAF raids over occupied territory, as the Luftwaffe is refusing to fight and flak is causing a few losses. He argues that German air defenses must be destroyed in three months.
In the mediterranean, more than 70 patrol aircraft are lost to German fighters.

USA: Most information from USA is censored. Will the USA Navy attempt to execute plan Orange?

This AAR has officially come to a close. We got through the early war period, found a number of bugs, and have quashed most if not all of them.

We'll be starting a new AAR "Lebenstraum" with the newest version of the scenario.

Thank you to all the readers!
