I wonder how the USA had 36 months to prepare for war and were with "low productivity levels". My own production was at 250%! Maybe they need a better manager. Well, too much talk about the British not putting much of a fight, let us see how the USA will do against an enemy that isn´t weakened by a fight against every other power in the world and who has a real ally. The 5 minutes were actually 3 years.
We could have repelled the Germany invasion with USA help, the enemy had very low readiness levels in the first turns because the only bases he had were heavily damaged. Wondered if our "ally' at least offered some assistance? On the incessant demands we did, we actually had only two turns of discussions, we simply gave up him as soon we understood he wasn´t willing to help.
You may ally with the USA at your own risk, this game has some RPG features, and some players have a recurrent behaviour. I would follow cpdeyoung and IronDuke to hell, but my experince of an alliance with the current USA player was bad enough to prefer to have him always as an enemy.
On the other hand I agree the idea to give ME territory to USA without talking to him wasn´t a good idea, because I was the first to suggest the USA to avoid war with Germany (because it would have interdicted the Trasn Atlantic routes). Anyway, it was a gamble, I believed they wouldn´t risk war against the USA.
