I warned both the Allies and the Soviets of the Japanese threat and was ignored.

The Union will be viewing the progress of the Japanese Empire in the East. We are well aware of the formidable power of the British Empire and the Soviet Union and welcome Japan as a co-warrior against these powers.

Forces out of Spain battled in the African hills against French soldiers defending there. Panzers are moving to positions where they can challenge the British in North Africa. The Italians have taken Malta, and done harm to components of the Royal Navy sheltering in Benghazi. German U-Boats also took part in this assault against the British fleet. The RN may have to address new concerns as the IJN becomes a factor.

In Europe a small infantry force was pushed back as it moved out of the Brest area. Some troops from the Iberian Peninsula have moved to France to deal with the British on the continent. The Americans are moving units, including armor to Denmark. We will have to garrison the Union positions in Europe against the British, and perhaps the Americans.

On the East Front blood is being shed copiously. The T34s and KV1s are challenging, but our forces are holding out. Losses are high on both sides and there is almost continuous battle. It might be said that the Union is more successful in the north, and the Soviets are doing better in the South. This is a big war.

Actually we didn´t ignore Chinese and American warns, but the Germans were simply too strong and much of Indian production was being shifted to the Med area.

We could not quite get to grips with the various enemy forces this month. We did make attacks at sea, including a strike at Athens on British cargo ships that sank many of them.

We advanced into Africa, increased garrisons in Europe, attacked British forces before Brest, shelled and bombed the Red Army, but no very large attacks.

Imperial Japanese High Command reports, That the Indian city of Dacca was taken by the lead elements of the 4th Army. In Indo China Saigon fell to the armored spear heads of the Japanese, Rangoon resisted a attack but was grievously damaged. China, Hong Kong fell as did Kweisui and Kaifeng that had held out for so long. Additional attacks were made on Soviet Forces at sea and on the land.

The Luftwaffe is gaining strength in the West, and we have a good bit of flak also. We did an air strike on Brest, and we attacked the British forces outside the city. In general we have more garrisons and reserves in the West now, and are a bit more comfortable.

In Africa we pushed forwards to try and threaten the enemy's supply lines. We assaulted Algiers but did not take it. The Italians bombarded Tripoli with their fleet. The rest of the British cargo ships in Athens were sunk.

In the East we took Lvov, and attacked a bit in the south.

We will be interested in the Japanese activity.

Japanese High Command reports Calcutta Rangoon, were captured by Japanese forces. Japanese forces are closing in on Vladivostok. British Submarines in the south China seas were located and sunk. It was noted that these were older models 1st World War not a match for the modern Japanese navy and air force, it is expected that the British possess more modern weaponry.

The progress of Axis forces has impressed the Japanese to have cleared the British from Western Continental Europe and driven deep in North Africa, isolating the Mediterranean from the Atlantic. This is a spur to Japanese forces driving west to meet our brave allies driving East.

To our Japanese friends : We are grinding along. The British have significant forces in North Africa, and we are not strong there yet.

In the East we patched lines beaten up last month. In the West we countered a British parachute operation, and pushed all British troops back into Brest. We also attacked that city and did some damage.

We captured Dakar and Algiers.

Japanese Imperial High Command reports that a large Soviet counter offensive was launched towards Mukden and Shenyang, the armored lead elements of these attacks have been broken up with Japanese Heavy Tanks and Ki43II Fighter Bombers protected by A6M2 Fighters and the newer ki61. Also the imperial Japanese fleet is giving support in the form of Naval Bombardment on Vladivostok. Bangkok was taken on the push south to Singapore. Japanese forces advanced west of Calcutta approaching Delhi and the Tank factory complex to the NE of Delhi. Armored elements also pushed SW towards Madras.

9 December 1940

Next month will bring another year of war.

We pushed forward in North Africa, taking Tripoli.

In western Europe we attacked the RAF directly striking at Southampton. The enemy outnumbered us, but we gave more than we took in losses. We may be in an attrition contest with the British. We also attacked the anchorage at Scapa Flow.

In the East we attacked with artillery and air, but no ground attacks. The Soviet MLR is refused, and we do not want to venture into their parlor.

Japanese Imperial High Command reports that Kuala Lumpur has fallen in addition the Indian city of Damodar fell to Japanese forces. Against the Soviets Vladivostok fell and the attacking soviet forces are in disarray and retreat. Pursuit will begin in the new year. Mongolian Command and Asia North Command have begun the push to the North and North West. Meeting little opposition. A large force of British submarines were detected and sunk the third month in a row that the IJN has had to deal with British Submarine Incursions into the south China Seas.

Things went much as they have been going. In Europe we continue to fight the RAF for dominance in the skies. We push any forces that sortie out of Brest back.

In North Africa we push elements of the British and French back. Our forces are coming together near Tripoli where the British have made a stand. The Americans are in Arabia, but we do not know their strength.

In the East we have initiated a general advance to see what sort of a front the Soviets have built. Can we gain any ground there? Perhaps it will aid the Japanese to have some extra pressure on our east front.

Japanese Imperial High Command reports Rangoon Hyderabad and the Tank Factory to the NE of Delhi were captured after a stiff fight, the RAF have shown themselves in greater numbers and the defenses have thickened around Delhi, causing a concentration of Japanese forces to the East of the city.
The British it seems have drawn a line in the sand. A assault was launched on Singapore just failing fortunate for the British as it appears that the bulk of Fareast RN are based at Singapore.
Japan expects that these ships will have evacuated by the end of the month. On the Soviet Front the armored push North from Vladivostok has begun with attacks by air artillery and Ground forces on Komsomolsk.

Imperial Japanese forces thank our brothers in arms Germany and Italy for their efforts and assistance, If there is any resource the Imperial Japanese Empire can offer we will make it available.

To our Japanese Brothers in Arms :

We are excited by your progress, and happy to have an ally. We anticipate the United States entering the war sometime soon. They have already impinged on our efforts in Denmark and Arabia. We are sure they have designs on Japanese possessions also.

There are four large blocs in this conflict. The European Union, including Italy, the Japanese Empire and Co-prosperity sphere, the Comintern, and the rapacious capitalists of America and Britain. If things do not go our way we face a world dominated by the capitalist West and the Soviet Union. This will be the end of authentic cultures, and the rise of mass culture. Japan, and the European Union, fight to defend the world from cultural and political domination.

The Americans are across the seas from the lands they covet and our navies must remain strong. This titanic struggle is about to expand.

Our attack into the Soviet Union was met with painful counterattacks. We attacked again this month, and again took serious losses. This is a large and powerful force we face in the east.

The RN and RAF hurt our u-boat forces badly too. We pulled them back in for refitting.

The Italians bombed and shelled Benghazi and continued to exert power in the Mediterranean.

Japanese Imperial High Command can confirm that in India Delhi fell to Japanese forces with Japanese forces outside the cities of Madras and Bombay. South East Asia Singapore has fallen to Japanese forces. Ulan Bator is within range of the Japanese 5th Army as is Urumgi in central Asia. Komosomolsk was captured unopposed. Some points of enemy troop concentration's still remain in the east to be overcome.

These captured cities weaken the enemy and strengthen you.

Singapore taken is a great coup.

The PanzerArmee Afrika has reached the Egyptian border. French and Commonwealth forces oppose us there. We have a long tail to bring up for the assaults into Egypt.

In Europe the British force in Brest continues to patrol outside the port, and we continue to push the patrols back. The Luftwaffe battles the RAF each month, and the RAF no longer has the easy superiority they once enjoyed.

In the East no great battles, but we are into good defensive territory in the South. Elsewhere in the east we test the ground, looking for the Soviet main line of resistance.

The Italians attacked the Soviets in Athens, but did not hurt them much.

Kind of you to say but as Bombur pointed out production from Asia has been going to stem the Axis. Makes the opposition to the Japanese a bit like Fred Karno's army. So big thank you to Germany and Italy.

We pushed to the edge of Alexandria and assaulted the city, but the enemy held. The Italians landed a rifle division between Alex and Suez, cutting the road, which should annoy the Allies.

The Luftwaffe attacked the RAF in Southampton where results were satisfactory despite the presence of a lot of flak. A force of U-Boats attacked the port of London for meager results. They will take a hit from the RAF.

We captured Ploiesti and Sofia in the Balkans. The Cities of Varna and Bucharest are in a pocket as we reached the Black Sea in two spots. We made various attacks up and down the East Front, taking some fairly heavy losses, but dealing the same to the enemy.

We are concerned with the possibility the United States might enter the war as our enemy. Their presence in Denmark is not appreciated.

Japanese Imperial Command reports some success India is now Japanese controlled except for one city Karachi. Advances were made against the Soviets more cautious advances, as we expect that the Soviets will bite back soon. Now that sources of naval fuel are available fleet operations can begin in earnest, fuel has been a major concern for the Japanese due to the US reducing supply to Japan, this has gone from a trickle to zero. It is of course the prerogative of the US to reduce or suspend supplies of oil to Japan. But it has played a major role in Japanese strategy in the war so far.

This was a grinding turn. We lost the submarines that made the attack on port of London. This attack was a mistake.

We did take Alexandria, and are poised to make further advances in the Nile area. The enemy sank the Italian amphibs, which was a blow.

We advanced in the Balkans, but took losses across the front. This battle is bloody.

(Comment from Chuck : The Italians lost 14 L2 Artillery. Please look at the history and see if I accidentally did a land attack rather than an artillery attack. If it was an artillery attack then I think it is a bug, if it was a land attack it was just my mistake.)

There is no counter battery in GD1938 used to be, so there is no way you can lose artillery on the attack, unless you do a direct land attack using elements of Artillery.
So I am going with a mistake, not a bug. So if you never make mistakes I apologies, and you can join my wife on that pantheon (:

Claus or Alexandre may have record of a bug in which case ignore the above.

The United States is free to declare war, and we think they plan to Join our enemies. We have not had any diplomatic hints, but their position in Denmark is far stronger than it need be.

The East Front was a slug fest, and not one we are doing well in. We did capture some ground, but at significant cost.

In Afrika we captured Suez which limits access to the Med. Red Navy units can enter from the Black Sea.
