Lots of US subs detected in the South China Seas, these are international waters so they have a perfect right to be there, but these movements are being logged and monitored, as per IJN procedures. The British are still conceding ground as are the Soviets. The problems the Germans and Italians are experiencing are the reason that the Japanese are currently unchecked. This situation may change but powerful as the soviets are, a two front war may be beyond them at this stage.

European Union Directorate
Berlin, Germany, EU

The United States has allied itself with our enemies, but is not yet an enemy state.

This was an active turn with Luftwaffe attacks on Britain, and some in the East too.

In the Middle East Jerusalem and Khartoum were captured. The European Union and Japan can join hands if they can push through oil country.

Japanese forces continue their advance on all fronts, and the linking of German and Japanese forces is a lot closer, Japanese forces are in the Outskirts of Abadan. While they compress forces for another spring forward.

Ok I am going to have concede defeat in Games 12 GD1938 and Game 10 GD1938 there have been no turns since the 25th August I assume they are going the way of the other games a long slow death, so to avoid a long drawn out demise I will concede defeat, after all if I don't get to play any turns I can never win (: perhaps new games can be started and lessons learned in these games applied to the next.

It was an honor to play against you, Tom, and Chuck. I think it is safe to say that you have overpowered both me and Alexandre, and that true victory belongs to you two. I for one think it would be right of me to concede the defeat, and not you.

What great games these were. I am far from certain where victory should find its home, so I will declare a draw. Germany in game ten has less than a thousand manpower left and Claus is deadly to infantry!

Would the Axis ever have taken Brest?

When Claus struck out of the East I thought he would be in my panzer factories in a turn. The desperate attempt to fill the lines was very tense and great fun. Thanks to all for great playing, and please include me in your plans for future games.

Time for Ratzinger to enter the seminary.

Chuck

"so I will declare a draw."

The overall situation for the Allies is fairly terminal. Asia gone Africa pretty much gone Oceania being swallowed only the US has the power to intervene here, and they are not at their strongest, And of course they would be dealing with a Japan who have exceeded US production capacity and are dug in. The clincher is that the Japanese are approaching the Urals and Stalingrad from the East not to mention the Middle Eastern Oil Fields where they will be joining forces with the Germans. The Soviet Gamble was to destroy Germany early to Crush them between the Red Army and the British and French due to your superb initial defense then counter attack this plan has failed. And there is nothing in reserve for the Soviets to block the Japanese. So defeat is inevitable and a draw beyond the grasp of the Allies.

I did not know the Japanese had made such gains, and I will concede that a draw is thus unlikely.

I thought Claus was going to let me deal with the Western Allies without intervening. When he was so assertive in his posts about the European Union I began to worry, but I certainly was not prepared for his attack. I had just enough in the East to slow him enough. I poured Rifle2 into the breech but them got a manpower crunch.

In the later game I badly overestimated Soviet power and kept expecting T-34s to flow south into the Middle East. I was very surprised when the penetration of the Balkans began to be possible.

I knew the British-French were weaker, but in the early game the air forces of the RAF and VVS were pounding me so. I was behind in air power for the whole early game.
