UK - The UK continue to strengthen the Army in Egypt. This leaves little for Greece - so I hope the Germans allow me another 'free' turn.

The Canadian Corps arrives in Egypt and the two more units are on the way - an army and a couple of carriers - both are unescorted.

And still nothing. Intelligence shows a German battlecruiser in the Baltic and an Italian battleship in the Adriatic The Italians seemingly sit and wait having declared war on Greece.

I had my heart in my mouth though... a German wolf pack (I assume it was a wolf pack) passed just to the south of my carriers and army bound for Egypt. I could do without losing them!

On a sidenote: I just happened to stumble over an article about how German and British soldiers came out of the trenches in WW1 to celebrate Christmas together. Which - I got to confess - made me shed a tear. I love to play wargames, but I wish all this **** would never have happened. Anyways, merry Christmas everyone!

Yes, a famous, uplifting, but ultimately doomed episode. I second that emotion. I guess WWII is more understandable given what we know about the Nazis. WWI is the really annoying one. No European leader would have proceeded as they did if they knew what was going to happen - it was just a tragic, pointless and obscene waste. Happy Christmas Hartmann.

Still no movement in Greece, but more build up against the Soviet Union. An early Barbarossa must be expected.

Meanwhile the Afrika Korps lands in Libya.

Two German destroyer flotillas attack the 2nd Submarine Flotilla in the Skaggerak.

Again this game is so different from before. The Italians do nothing about Greece and, although the Italians and Germans appear set up for an attack on Yugoslavia, they take no action.

Bulgaria joins the Axis - maybe the Germans and Italians have been waiting for this event?

Not sure what, if any, this event has on Romanian strength, but Antonescu crushes the Iron Guard and consolidates his own power in Romania.

At the Berghof Adolf Hitler has not been himself for weeks now. The news has hit him like a sledgehammer. Winston Churchill's record "Without Me" has gone platinum in 16 countries and remains top of the hit parade even in Germany after 50 weeks.

There is only one thing for it. Der Fuhrer strikes back.....

Look
If you had
One shot
Or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted
In one moment
Would you invade Poland
Or just let it slip?

While the Germans are doing god knows what in the Balkans and North Africa, the Yugoslavs decide its time to take some action of their own...

The Allies are happy to support this. Although its probably not great news for Greece - or indeed Yugoslavia - if it diverts troops from the USSR that cannot be a bad thing.

If this AAR last long enough then it will feature - however it wasn't appropriate here because that would mean Hitler taking the mickey out of himself. He has never struck me as the kind of man to possess a sense of humour, let alone a self-deprecating one.....

The Axis "weirdness" continues.
- They invade Yugoslavia, but the initial attack seems nothing like as devastating as it was in the last game.
- The U-Boats announce their presence on the Canada convoy line
- There is movement from Axis forces in North Africa.
- Nothing once again in Greece.
- More build up along the Soviet border.

The thorny question of Ireland comes up again. I say no as I have no wish for trouble in my backyard as North Africa is seemingly about to kick off.

UK - Not enough MPP! I start bringing the RN up to scratch on the upgrades front. I decide not to spend too much on Yugoslavia as they are unlikely to hold regardless. I do give to the Greeks though.
USA - Infantry Weapon research
USSR - Starting with those nearest the border I upgrade as much as I can to Infantry Weapons 1

4th April 1941

There is a Wolf Pack on the Canadian convoy route but I ignore this as I want to upgrade the Canadian destroyers first.

My new armoured carriers HMS Illustrious and HMS Victorious are almost there, and should enter the Red Sea next turn.

The position in the desert looks strong - in fact I have almost too many fortifications for the number of troops available! Really annoyed about that hex north of Quattara. If I had known I had this much time I could have sealed it, but I expected an attack before now. I just have to hope the Axis don't exploit it....

The German/Italian attack on Yugoslavia grinds on - the Yugoslavs, with no support from me, are not going to last much longer.

More attacks in the North Atlantic - I will needs to get the destroyers back out.

The Afrika Korps start to move and the Italian 11th Army, with panzers in support, advance to just outside El-Alamein.

There appears to be something wrong in Iraq. I have posted on the main forum as I think I have too many British units. I answered yes to sending the Indian XIII Corps, and got rather more than I bargained for:

The fractured nation that is Yugoslavia surrenders, and in no time the various Slav nationalities show their true colours and allegiances - highlighted by the actions of the pro-German Croats and the pro-Soviet Serbians.

The U-Boats continue to cause havoc on the North Atlantic run, but I have three destroyer flotillas with the latest upgrades heading to the last reported sighting area.

In Egypt the Italians army is replaced with another German unit. The Germans appear to have done a lot of hinterland manoeuvring but have yet to attack.
