11 December 1939

The military and naval forces of the EU had some offensive operations on both fronts this month.

In the West Nantes fell to our forces, and we pushed a bit deeper into Spain. Our navies sank some surface forces off Bordeaux and cut out some destroyers in La Corunna. This leaves our fleet positioned to interdict supplies and transport. The Allied leaders speculated that a we would find Marseilles a tough nut to crack and we are sure this is true. Nantes was tough, and easier to get to.

In the East we caused some casualties but made no major attacks. The Soviets are powerful enough that we need a significant buildup before we go on the offensive there. We are still scrambling to block their significant attack.

A special commendation for the Romanian destroyer which sank this turn. This ship has battle honors enough to light up Romanian naval history for ages. What a magnificent warship, and it went down fighting!

Imperial High Commands notes that casualties are currently light. The Chinese are blocking currently but The Imperial Japanese Army remains vigilant for the inevitable Chinese counter attacks. 2 Chinese cities are under direct Artillery shelling a third city is isolated and its defenders are being compressed back towards the city itself.

It is expected against such huge numbers of defenders that the Imperial Japanese Army has a long and hard slog ahead.

Stavka notes with some displeasure that the offensive in the Northern part of Europe, that is Poland, is come to a grinding halt. New troops are being sent to the area, and we hope this will lead to more victories. In northern Rumania a German Panzer force was discovered, and it was engaged. We destroyed it completely, with both artillery, air, and direct assaults, but mainly the last thing. First they fell back to Cluj, and then outside Cluj, after being beaten back there. In all cases this was the first time that Soviet Heavy Armor, faced off against German Panzers, and we are happy to report it, as it was a very good result, for the Soviets.

Constanta gave up resisting this month. After allied and Soviet bombardment from Sea, it was easy to take the few disorganized survivors, by a direct assault. Bulgaria was also liberated, as Sofia fell to the United Soviet Socialist Republic of Turkeys forces. If we are lucky we might get to pocket the resistors in Albania and Yugsolavia, with a spearhead thrust across what used to be the Free states of Hungary and Czechoslovakia.

Things seem quiet in the Far East, and while the Japanese have taken up arms, once again aganist the Chinese, Soviet forces remain on the ready, if they should cross the "red line" that would be the taking of non-coastal settlements.

French forces in Marseille inflicted some casualties in the enemy and are considering a counterattack to link the city with Barcelona. British forces in the Mediterranean are being reinforced. A disembark in France is being prepared as the enemy seems to be badly beaten in the East. Attempts to eliminate AA defenses in Northern France resulted in massive losses to RAF.

We think we have prevented the French from counterattacking from Marseilles to Barcelona, but we shall have to see. We made some gains in Spain, and even in Portugal, but there is still a long way to go there. We certainly did not take Marseilles, but the Italians declared war, and have moved some troops to prevent a French offensive into Italy. The Italians have been hurt helping on the East Front so they will have a slow process to gain offensive potential.

In the East we have tried to stop the Red Army from overrunning Europe. German and Italian troops have had to pull back and Tirana is an open city.

Japan reports no great gains except for ground given up by the Chinese for tactical reasons. Preparing the ground is a longer process as the Chinese are not providing any toe holds, but the IJA will persist.

The Scale and Breadth of the war in Europe continues to astonish the Japanese High Command. That the Axis still survives between the Hammer and the Anvil has confounded the Japanese strategic planners, who by there own admission have predicted imminent German collapse only to be proved wrong.

Tirana is no longer an open city. It is now part of the newest member state of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, as Capitol of Albania. Soviet forces continue to move forwards in the Balkans, and now stand before the Capitol of Yugoslavia. But the biggest event was the first battle of Warsaw. After a hellish bombardment by amounts of artillery previously unseen cooperating on the Polish front, an armored attack was begun to liberate the city. Losses were high on both sides, but at the end the Germans came out victorious, defending the city with what was left of the scattered infantry and a Panzer Division.

Several new generals have been appointed to new armies this month. Among them an officer we have great expectations of, named G. Zhukov.

A Naval battle between British and Italian forces in the Mediterranean resulted in a small advantage to the Italian Forces, however, the British remaining ships took refugee in Tirana´s port, where they will be refueled, repaired and rearmed to sail again. British submarines are moving to the Med, to interdict Italian forces. British armoured divisions are moving towards Benghazi, and then Tripoli. The Royal Air Force achieved a significant victory, by destroying lots of German land transports. At least 200 train compositions and 300 trucks where destroyed, it will slow down reinforcements to the Spanish Front. In the Iberian peninsula, German advanced slowed a bit. Marseille could not be reinforced due to Italian interction in the Med, it will be fixed soon....

In the west we captured La Corunna, and attacked Marseilles, but the French port was too tough a nut to crack. We advanced a bit but it was not a strong performance in Spain. The reduction of Marseilles, Barcelona, Lisbon, and, eventually, Gibraltar are all goals for our forces.

In the east we attacked in the north and filled lines in the south. The Soviets are stronger than we expected, and the east is now our major area of operations.

The Royal Navy fleet at Tirana will stay there.

Japan had some success and a failure. Yenan was taken by direct assault Sian was taken by airborne assault (The IJA para's are surrounded as they should be holding Sian may prove beyond them) Kweisui the defenders are surrounded and in a state of siege. Chungking resisted direct assault but was severely weakened.

4 March 1940

We attacked Lisbon and Marseilles, but took neither.

The British invaded the continent at Brest, and did a paradrop on Lille. The Brest operation received the competent support of the Royal Navy. We shall have to prevent such attacks in the future. Having to pull back troops deployed elsewhere to deal with raids is not productive.

In the East we took Koenigsberg back, and made some attacks along the line, but the Red Army is very strong and we have to re-bolster the lines each time.

The Italian Navy has covered itself in glory. After dealing with the RN submarines in the Adriatic they sank the Red Banner Med Fleet of the Soviets in Athens. The Italians have lost some ships, but remain a powerful naval force.

In Spain Rundstedt is slowly cutting allied positions off from one another. Progress is not fast, but we do not expect quick progress in this struggle.

Sorry to not have done my turn. But me doing it would not change that the game is stalled: Bombur is out of town to the 24th, or at least that is what he told me. I guess I should have notified everyone in game 10 earlier...

Looking at Bombur's national flag I would say the fate of the Brazilian's in the world cup will be a major factor[:)in his gaming time over the next few weeks. As a Brit I would like to announce that I am now rooting for the following teams Holland Germany USA and God forgive me Italy. Sorry Bombur Brazil are not on the list unless they are playing Argentina

April 1940

In the west we took Marseilles and Lisbon. We placed forces just outside Brest, but did not attack there.

In the east we pushed the Red Army back near Split, and made some attacks where we saw advantage. The Soviets are very strong.

In the Med we attacked Royal Navy surface and submarine forces and defeated them. Most of the RN is in the Western Med.

Japan continues steady progress delayed by the digging in of millions of conscript Chinese. The Japanese breakout from the captured city of Yenan continues with the Heavy Tanks leading the advance towards Sian and Chengtu. Chungking still provides problems for the Japanese 1st and 4th Armies as the Bridges to the approach to the city, have been blown not by the Chinese but by intense Japanese artillery fire. Kweisui continues to hold out raids have been launched by Japanese heavy Bombers to subdue the defenders.

May 1940

The west : We captured Cadiz, and invested Gibraltar. We are positioned to assault Barcelona next month and hope to soon welcome Spain into the Union. Portugal is already fighting by our side. The Americans have taken Denmark, and while they are not at war we think they are paired with the British. We are certainly not pleased with the presence of Americans on the Continent. We should have incorporated Denmark into the Union earlier, but were busy. The Union fleet had some success and have positioned submarines to blockade Brest. The RAF will surely cause this blockade to be painful.

The east : We attacked at various places on the long front, giving and taking losses. The Soviets gave us a breather in the south and we hope this continues for a bit longer. The Italians fought Red Navy subs in the Mediterranean. The Italians have done well there, but there are still Royal Navy, remnants of the French fleets, and Soviet ships to contend with.

In the west we took Barcelona, Gibraltar, and Valencia, but are yet to take Madrid. At Brest we took heavy losses as we maintained the blockade, and the British prevented us from taking Brest. The British are waging their own sort of war, and it is aggravating us. The RAF is strong.

In the east the Luftwaffe attacked the Red Army and we strengthened our positions.

In the Mediterranean the Italian Navy bombarded Malta.

Japan Supreme Command reports that the breakout from Yenan has laid the way for the capture of Chengtu and Sian also Chungking was taken attacked from the East and the West, Chungking has proved a hard nut to crack. This leaves 5 major cities for Japanese forces to capture. Kweisui is surrounded as is Kaifeng in a Large pocket in a huge part of central China, Japanese forces are within shelling range of Kunhong. Only Lanchow and Uruhgi are not contacted by Japanese forces this is to be shortly corrected.

July 1940

While there are still a few allied soldiers left on the coast of Spain we nonetheless joyously welcome Spain into the Union. Madrid and Tangiers fell and Union troops are crossing the straits to do battle with the British and Soviets there. British subs observing the straits were attacked inside the Med by U-Boats. The Italians did anti-submarine work and bombarded Malta again.

In the east we pushed the Red Army out of Klaipeda but we did not extend our line to occupy it.

The British are defending Brest well, and we could not attack. The RAF is taking losses in their attacks, but they damage us so much we cannot attack. We have placed forces along the coast to stop British raids, and hope to stabilize the situation. With the straits of Gibraltar closed to allied traffic it will be a long way around for British troops.

August 1940

Our troops took Casablanca as we moved into Africa. German U-Boats had success against allied submarines and have moved deeper into the Med. The Italians destroyed a Royal Navy task force, but the bulk of the RN is in Tripoli and we expect them to sortie out to do battle.

In the east we were attacked in the south and hardly survived, but we have rebuilt the position assaulted. We attacked in the north, a very, very costly attack in the forests south of Warsaw. The war in the East is on a very large scale.

Now we must discuss the west. We have pulled away from Brest as the losses from the RAF were just too great. We hated to do this, but perhaps we can regroup and try again later.

No major progress on the Chinese Front, Valiant efforts by the out gunned Chinese. But the war is winding down.

I have just upgraded to recon 4 I note that one recon 3 is yielding 40 recon points per aircraft, considerably better than recon 4 I had always thought that recon 3 was a huge improvement on recon 2. I guess it is just a problem with a decimal point.

I hope its recon 4 that has the decimal point issue, and not recon 3. I really like recon 3. :)

Imperial Japanese Command, reports that it launched a offensive against the Western Imperial forces in the East. Japan will not talk of liberation, the east is simply gaining a new master a Eastern master. Mandalay and Hanoi are now under Japanese control as the war in China winds down. A successful attack was launched in the direction of Vladivostok.
