The Western Powers

quote:

Paris, 14 Janvier 1938 : AFP : The Bourse went up over 3% on Thursday the 13th, as The War Ministry announced that current plans are based on no expectation of a war before 1942. A spokesman said that recent diplomatic activity has shown that European nations have new attitudes to solving conflicts of interest. The Ministry says the Nation is prepared, and potential enemies are aware that assaulting our defenses would result in a bloodbath.

Reactions from other nations are expected, but the British and Americans have said they will not rush a response, and it will require at least another day before they can comment.


quote:

London, 20 January 1938, The Times (London) leader : We fear our continental cousins are letting their wishes get the best of their famous rationality. While it is certain that there does not have to be a war, still we see forces at work that indicate certain Powers would welcome one. The perception of the Western Powers as weaker than they should be seems to invite the totalitarian Powers to attack. We hope war does hold off, and hope our leaders will use the opportunity to prepare.


quote:

Washington, 19 January, 1938, AP : The President and Secretary of War have not commented on the French speculation, but eight congressmen, joined by aviator Charles Lindberg, have commented that war in Europe will not mean war for the United States.


quote:

Soviet Comment : A story circulating around Moscow : Stalin returns from the Bolshoi after sitting through Swan Lake. He is in a foul mood not having seen any swans or even a lake just a lot of guys prancing around on a stage wearing tights. Molotov hands the Soviet Supreme leader the communique from Paris. War before 1942 he laughs the French have not got one military assessment right since before 1812. Have we got anymore suspect generals to shoot I need to watch some real entertainment.

Hitler has no idea what the French are talking about. Germany is peaceful and benign.

Mussolini thinks the French are insane, Italy can ill afford a war any time soon.

Japan announces the capture of 2 more Chinese cities. If the Chinese had not attacked the peaceful Japanese at Peking this war would not be happening.

Germany announces a bootstrap program to ramp up production for the good of the people in Germany. Mussolini inspired by Germany announces plans to increase production in Italy as well.

Japan deploys her 1st Army to China. With 2 new cities to protect more troops are needed. China foolishly launched an offensive with conscripts.

Further Japan announces production increases.

Germany continues to work on production increase as does Italy.

Group of Western Nations

quote:

Washington, 21 February, 1938, AP : The President addressed critics of the new association with France and Great Britain (GOWN) today. He said the American people should be aware that none of the nations involved consider themselves allies in any way. GOWN is is consultative only, and seeks to pool the best military minds from each nation in evaluating intelligence relating to military and naval development. So much is going on, from active conflict in China, to announcement of production ramp-ups, that each of the Western nations wants to meet and discuss matters.

The President said that the production speedups are troubling since they all seem to be more concerned with armaments than bettering civilian life. None of the GOWN members is involved in a production speedup, but each says it reserves the right to increase production of arms if conditions warrant.

Germany INSISTS it is peaceful and not ramping up military production. Hitler calls the Western Nations that claim otherwise foolish and stupid.

Italy's Mussolini demands to know why the western powers believe more trains for Italy is bad.

Japan reminds the west that China started this war and is the aggressor all Japan is doing is trying to end the war as fast as possible.

London "The Tattler", February 25th, 1938

quote:

"A Peek under the Gown"

Our wordy advisor in Germany, Herr Hitler, says the western powers are "foolish and stupid", wouldn't one of those adjectives be damning enough?

We wonder if he noticed the GOWN communique says none of the nations is involved in a production speedup. We have it on good authority that the only reason they are not is the capital investment is not yet pulled together. The government will pull a punch for diplomacy's sake, but not all the Members are so polite. Our Berlin Buddy might want to get a copy of Hansards, and see what Mr. Churchill has to say about rearmament. Churchill once said about naval arms : "Megalomania is the only form of sanity". There are many in the government and outside who would "insist" that Germany is up to no good. Their answer is British rearming, perhaps western rearming. The Reich Tyke should consider the GOWN statements for the message they are really passing on. Not to do so would be foolish, perhaps stupid.

Goebbels notes that the English are stubborn and paranoid. A bad combination. While the French and US seem to support British ignorance on the matter of domestic production ramp ups for Germany and Italy they have no problem threatening to ramp up their military production, perhaps before making threats one should consider the ramifications of those threats.

While Germany can not speak for Italy, one notes that increased civilian production can be easily converted to war machinery, if Briton wants to ramp up their war machine then Germany will have no choice but to convert from civilian production to war production, and such a move would be done simply to counter an aggressor Nation making threats of war on the Continent.

Mussolini reminds the British Government that he assumed power with a promise to keep the trains running on time, such needs more train stock and justifies a CIVILIAN ramp up. Italy has no interest in talks of war and warfare. And wonders why Briton would ally with France an uneasy truce was what they used to have. Perhaps in preparation for war the British and the French are busy working to convince the USA to join them in a war to control the Continent. What could they be promising America for such an alliance?

Japan simply reminds the North Atlantic partners that they have no business putting their nose in Japanese Chinese relations. China started a war and Japan will finish it.

Our great leader Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek is pleased to announce counterattacks against the Jap aggressor that have inflicted heavy casualties against the enemy.

Besides those stats are pretty much equal. While it is true that Chiang Kai-shek does have the same Staff as Mao Zedong, and has a better combat bonus, and better cards in the form of attack II and defend II instead of attack I and defend I, Mao Zedong does have the ready unit card, which Chiang Kai-shek lacks. I wouldn´t call him much better, but better yes.]

Washington : March 14th, 1938 : AP

quote:

The Congress today was presented with a new agency by the administration. The proposed organization, the Defense Production Administration (DPA), will seek to rationalize production of munitions and armaments along with the war Department. It will allow increased efficiency through an innovative training program, including college tuition support. The future munitions plants will be a public - private partnership, and the plants will be constructed in a modular fashion to allow new, improved armaments to be produced with minimal changeover times. The government will not actually run the plants, but will provide financing at favorable rates, and aid in any sales abroad that may be desired. Republicans are against the plan root and branch, but the votes seem to be there to authorize the Agency at some point.

The administration is clear that the DPA is not an armament program, but rather an infrastructure investment, which will allow smaller firms with superior products to ramp up production rapidly. President Roosevelt said "We anticipate producing Battleships much as automobiles are built." The selection process for contracts will be on merit, and will allow the best ideas to come forward, even if the firm possessing them is too small to be a major player alone. Competition should increase, and larger firms will be in the market for superior ideas.

Japan notes that the supposed glorious Chinese advance was cut off at the knees.

Goebbels notes that after lambasting civilian production boosts by Germany and Italy, the US President has announced actual MILITARY armaments increases. He wonders who and where the threat is?

Italy simply plods along. Ignoring the west as it tries to demonize a Country for building more trains.

The time on Jonathan's post is about the same time as the current game file on dropbox. I wonder did he do his turn and forget to change the name? France turn3 is in the old list.

I started to do my turn, everything seemed OK but I just had a short power failure and need to do my turn over.

EDIT: My completed turn is in the dropbox now.

GOWN has very little to report. The training exercises in various parts of each nation are attracting citizens who express wonder. The military observers from other nations are showing a disquieting reserve, and the words "Where is your better equipment" prove infuriating.

More evidence of the warmongering attitudes of the Western Alliance. Ramping up war production and holding provocative military exercises to show case their power. No wonder Austria is seeking admittance into a Greater Germany.

While most Western historians consider Mao to be a more effective political leader than Chiang Kai-shek, in terms of purely military leadership on the army and army group level, it's quite possible that Chiang was the better leader. I'd say Chiang definitely had more experience in this area, he liked to go to areas of the front having intense action to personally direct the combat there. I think Mao was less likely to get involved with military details and let his subordinates have their way without much interference from him. Maybe a good comparison would be FDR, who although having outstanding political leadership characteristics, would probably have given a mediocre performance at best if he tried to command an army or army group.

時事月報 (Current Affairs Monthly) May 1938

Organized Jap Resistance at Tsingtao Ending

(By The Associated Press)

One of the most vital blows of the war in China was struck on April 4th when Chinese forces launched an offensive to retake the vital port city of Tsingtao, taken earlier this year by the Japs.

The Japanese offered heavy opposition among the streets and alleys of this major city. Initial Chinese casualties were heavy, but commanders felt the Japs could be beaten.

In a communiqué issued three weeks after the offensive began, Chinese leader Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek announced the Chinese advance had reached the northern shore of the Shandong Peninsula at Chefoo, having cut through both flanks to isolate Weihaiwei at the eastern tip of the peninsula. Chinese forces are continuing to complete the mop-up, smashing furiously from all directions into remaining pockets.

Of special note is the first instance of the mass surrender of Japanese troops during this war. Hundreds of them have given themselves up, many of them newly-conscripted teenagers with little desire to die on foreign soil for their "God-Emperor" when faced with overwhelming Chinese superiority. The myth of Jap invincibility has finally been shattered.

It remains to be seen if as a result of this victory the Japanese will realize the futility of continuing their war of aggression.

Japanese Reaction

Japanese Domei News Agency, meanwhile, admitted in a dispatch broadcast by Tokyo radio, the "penetration" of Tsingtao by the Chinese.

It termed the situation a "critical development" which, compelled Nipponese commanders to withdraw "part of their troops to positions in the rear in order to consolidate their defense lines."

Germany announces that Austria has petitioned and Germany has accepted an offer to join a Greater Germany. The German Nation is pleased to announce a new and stronger Germany and promises to work diligently for all German nationals and speakers everywhere.

Austria said it was afraid a western alliance portended a bad omen for war and wished to save itself from being gobbled up by France.

Italy announces that the trains still run on time as more stock cars are added.

Japan signs a ceasefire with China. Warning that any renewed assaults on Japanese nationals by Chinese forces would reignite the war.

Washington, April 3rd, 1938 - GOWN announces that all three nations are now actively producing war materiel.

The GOWN nations are content with the status quo, but are also aware that there are nations which are not. These nations will not be appeased with concessions, and treaties with these nations are not worth the paper they are printed on. We are not so foolish as to think our preparations will stop attacks, but we hope the munitions will allow us to win the coming war, or wars. If we are not attacked, so much the better, but if attacked we intend to fight to win.

We do not believe the Axis nations have peaceful intent, and no words will convince us. GOWN nations have very little to gain from a war, but we no longer think peace will hold.

We will not bother explaining ourselves. We are gearing up to defend ourselves vigorously.

Make of it what you will, say what you might, the Group of Western Nations is preparing for war.
