-New aircraft developed. The P-40B, according to our specialists, is far better than the Japanese Ki-43I and will reach the front lines in big numbers soon
-American submarines are getting close to Japanese home waters, soon, Japan will be cut off from external trade
-Production of transport ship is increasing
-Manila holds, morale and level supply are high

China
-Chinese bombers from Hainan are inflicting heavy losses to enemy armour

Letting everyone down eh ? Well heres a Britain and France AAR from the beginning to date:

England: Took 1 turn to assess the overall strategic situation, had my entire game victory conditions decided for me, randomly. Having some fun getting Portugal and Norway on my side, using aircraft to good advantage for the time being. Lots of navy to use playing endless whack a mole with German invincisubs. Watching France get steamrolled. Sorry France, sucks to be you. Japan told me to stay out of the way and they would leave me alone for a while, sounded good to me. Got some good advice from Bombur on how and what and where to produce things. Overall the British are fairly strong.

France: Decided on survival as an overall goal. Not such a good choice but none of the others seemed any better. Got war declared on me because Germany and Russia decided to gulp down Poland without even pausing to chew. Oh joy. France is very weak. Lots of useless and unproductive colonial stuff strewn about the globe haphazardly. Waited for the germans to attack me, waited some more. Got bored and started attacking them. Of course I started losing even when just shelling them from the Maginot. I actually lost Maginot units to German counter battery fire. I tried to get the Spanish on my side, hoping that someday I could retreat from the Germans into Spain. It never happened. Got bored again, finally the Germans attacked me and tossed my units around like a rag doll. About to lose everything, oh joy.

So, now you're up to date.

There is a small pocket of French resistance just below Paris. Brest is still holding out, and so is Nantes. The rest is German / Italian :)

Well and good for the time being. When you start hearing the warning beeps as the steam roller backs up and makes a u-turn at the West coast of France you might want to start moving your stuff east into the hills.

And thanks for the high praise Jeffrey H. although it is in a roundabout manner :)

France per se is gone, the vestiges of the mother country live on in the colonial holdings, although they are few and far scattered they will likely hold on for some time. Lots of naval and air units were evacuated before the collapse and their supply state is being sorted. The new normal might not alow any of them to maneuver. Time will tell. France was a very weak state that was barely able to keep itself in supply, with units that had really no chance of survival once the shooting started.

England took Sweden under wing this round, lets hope the new aquisition brings some good bouts of heartburn to the Germans. There are some bright spots here and there, with previous turns investments coming to bear fruit finally in the next few rounds. Stay tuned.

The USN staff concluded that unrestricted submarine warfare isn´t giving the expected results and submarine losses are dangerously high. American naval engineers are studying the plans of the new German U-Boats VII in order to developed a more advanced vessel. How these plans fell in our hands won´t be explained here.
The Chinese Army is unable to stop the Southern offensive of the Japanese, despite the fact that Chinese losses are very low now and are being easily replaced, thus allowing the production of artillery instead of infantry weapons.

.......NEWS FLASH........ important information from Japanese imperial HQ.......

Our glorious naval forces have tracked down and sunk several American subs which were preventing supplies from reaching our brave forces in the Philippines. Now it appears this maybe ending and supplies finally getting through. American resistance is tougher than expected but the more troops they pore into this battle the less that will be available for other areas. Our new sub and fighter level 4 will be rolling off the production lines soon along with our new carrier level 5, this will deal a glorious blow to the US and her plans. As for our southern offensive it is rolling on schedule and China will soon be cut in two........

The Fuhrer was quite surprised by the sudden decision of the Swedish Government to join the Allies. However, a smallish offensive has been ordered, and Malmö has been taken, from the Swedes. The Swedish navy has been sunk... we couldn´t have it lurking around, trying to sink civilian shipping in the baltic sea.

The Fuhrer was pleasently surprised that the Rumanian Government decided to join the noble Axis cause. He sent a cable to the Italian leader, the Duce, who in turn, reported that they had outdone the Germans, and convinced the Albanians to join them.

German Fighters keep shooting down more Allied planes, than are lost to them. If this continues, Göring is going to get a promotion to Field Marshal of the Air, and get a Field Marshal batton of his own. Perhaps he will even name a new plane after himself to promote his succes!

The Duce was somewhat surprised and bewildered, as he received the Bulgarian delegation.

"have our diplomatic corps been doing something i don´t know of" he said to Count Ciano, Foreign minister of Italy.

"Not to my knowledge, Duce" he replied, thinking that probably alot of things where being done by the diplomatic corps that the duce, neither cared to know about, nor knew about.

The delegation from Bulgaria had a document with them. It was a treaty of affiliation and alliance, with Italy. The Duce was pleased, this would make him seem like a big man, espeically in the eyes of the Fuhrer, he thought. Never mind he didn´t understand how it happened.

........NEWS FLASH........

Glorious news from the front.

Southern front is still showing victory after victory as our imperial forces pound the Chinese into submission. It looks as if a decisive battle is in the making in the south.

Northern Front- still silent with the occasional artillery bombardments here and there.
Philippine Front- slow going against determined U.S. resistance but this cannot last forever, as more and more forces are brought into battle,while they are being reduced day, by day. Manila has been reduced to rubble yet again.

More sub hunter groups are now searching out U.S. naval forces as we speak. Research front- our secret weapon is nearing completion and once finished, will decide the outcome of the war and then some.

I wonder if Ill Musso has heard from his commander in Egypt lately ? The Anglo-Arab forces report seeing nothing but the backsides of the Italians there.

I suspect the German leader will soon start hearing some requests for support less the losses continue ?

Il Duce looked worried. It was not so much the fact that his invasion army (the one that had been attacking egypt) was in full flight. Not it was much more than that. The British papers were mocking the Great Italian Soldier, and the great leader himself was also a target of this ridicule. They called him "Fat, Pompous and Ridiculous". Somehow he had to change that image of himself.

It was not that there was a whole lot of bad news to report. In fact, the Italian army had just taken Tunis, from the pityfull French, and the Italian Navy had just scared off the British Navy in an engagement near Gibraltar. Things in general were good. Why did the British act like things were good for them. That annoyed the Duce.

If one was to look at the British position overall, they should not be reporting so optimistically. The Germans were taking the satelite state of Sweden with relative ease. In fact Göteborg had just fallen. The German subs, according to the Fuhrer, were wreaking havoc with the British supply system, and were almost unchecked. The British were attempting some air raids, and those preformed at day were disasters, acomplishing little, and for pretty high losses. The British were even still flying in their outdated Hurricanes, a plane that the newest Italian plane, the MC.200, was far superiour. The night raids that the British were attempting, also were pretty unsuccesful. Their latest raid, on Amsterdam, barely caused producton there to be affected, while the losses of British life was severe.

No if the Duce had to guess, they were trying to provoke him into making a mistake. And their provocations were working. Slowly the Duce was hatching a plan, that was going to criple the British.... or be the death of the Italian Empire. But it had to be done...

You just can't stand to see me have a little fun can you ?

I guess the Soviets have chosen to not do anything other than destroy my allies, right now would be perfect for them to launch an attack on the Germans. With 100% invinci German everything, I can understand the reluctance. The game is setup to favor the Germans, they don't lose at anything. Still it's just a waiting game for them to face the feld grau wrecking ball, sooner or later.

I think I have an even chance against the Italians, win some, lose some, that's how it's working out. Of course they have their own aspirations and I don't automatically assume that they would be exclusive of British aspirations, but we don't seem to have that any sort of diplomatic option available to us.

If the Soviets and Germans are not forced into conflict very soon, I have to wonder what logic was it that forced the French and British into conflict with Germany and the Soviets from turn # 1.

Of course you have a diplomatic option. The American East coast ports are full of "would be" Lend Lease equipment. You just need to offer an alliance to America to get them.....and them you bomb the German shipyards and hunt enemy subs to make the Atlantic route safe....if the things turn to worse, you still can fall back to Africa, where USA are building a sizeable force. But you´ve been refusing any diplomatic contact attempted by USA....

Nothing personal but no thanks. You can declare war on me like everyone else, (except japan...) and trash what's left of my armed forces and claim it all for yourself. In fact I somewhat encourage it because it won't be there much longer if you wait.

Lost war at sea to German invinvci subs, CHECK
Lost air war to German invinci planes, CHECK
Watched France and the rest of Europe get steamrolled, CHECK
Had some fun batting around the Italians, CHECK
Waiting for the inevitable invasion of the UK, CHECK.

Britain did not have what it takes to beat Germany alone. The fact you won't ally in my opinion invalidates this whole game. With the US as your ally you have a chance, without them you rightfully get defeated.

.......NEWS FLASH.....

Chinese southern front is still on schedule with a breakthrough now underway. It is only a matter of time until I roll up the Chinese front and trap his entire southern army. Northern front still quiet with the occasional arty duels. Philippines is going slow, but eventually it will fall, just a matter of time. Sub hunter groups are patrolling the sea's for US naval forces.

One wonders why the U.S. have stopped posting AAR's maybe they are losing and just do not want to show the world just how bad they are.

My preference was to have an alliance with Germany, but it didn't happen. If Britain has no chance, (given the available range of VCs) in the game then their alliances should be scripted, you don't need a human to play it out.
