Guys, I am so sorry. I simply forgot to put it in the Dropbox folder. This is a quick turn for me, and I always try and get right to it.

5th June 1935

Gentlemen, this war making must stop. The union has placed League of Nation's peacekeeping troops between the lines in the Northwest. Nippon and the Eastern Empire are under mandate to honor these lines. Nippon should stay away from this area, as should the Russians.

Peace keepers are also in the far Northeast.

Now is the time for peace.

As the Union's peace keeping forces send Eastern Empire oil from the field they have stolen through their worthless alliance, they should know that they, like the Japanese, will soon be crushed under the treads of tanks. Eastern Empire' armored columns have already crushed one Japanese city, it will only before they roll on a second and the union ports.

The Soviets showed no respect for League peacekeepers. We did not expect them to do so.

The Soviets allies show more respect and have not joined the Reds in their folly.

Your excuse for joining the war is noted. Push back and face the consequences of those actions.

The Union has shown themselves to be masters of diplomacy, having strung along the Eastern Empire and acquired there oil fields through the art of manipulation. They "accidentally" declared war and broke our alliance, sat on our re-offer in goodwill for a year, only to reaffirm it right as hostilities started. Then they occupied our land and oil and blocked our path with "peacekeeprs". Eastern Empire has had enough talk full of empty words and promises. The time for war has begun. We have rooted out those ambassadors of ours that that have colluded with the Union and are now being sent to the Gulag. The Union has 24 hours to remove all of their citizens and officials or they will be joining them. The Japanese have quickly learned the error in siding with the treacherous French. The Union will soon learn that lesson as well.

Hey, I put Das back because it was empty for hours and couldn't remember if I had put the round in or not... I figured if someone was doing the round they swap it out... and if I had been hair brained I'd have corrected my error. Sorry, brother.

And just to confirm: There wasn't a union file there...

Sometimes the person doing the turn removes the file. Perhaps Union does that? I can put Union back in if needed.

Hey, just humble proposition: Can we all agree that the sides have been drawn and that there will be no backstabbing till one side defeats the other? I get the whole "Barbarossa" and "Pearl Harbor" move as a legitimate strat, but can we agree to battle as allies till one side defeats the other? I'm but the rook, likely set for destruction, but can we make this one about battle and not politics at this present juncture, until the next phase of the game?

I humbly agree, this is three against three. No stabbing allies, front, back or otherwise.

23 July 1935

With a battle cry of "More Balalaika, less Banjo!" the Russians are moving on Nashville. Sacrilege.

The Union would like to invite Das Reich and The Empire to join a crusade against these Russians! There are rumors that the government of the Empire is eaten up with Russian moles. Britons! Rise up and cast off the malignant Russian influence. They do not have your interests at heart.

I know, it was just to cover all the bases. Also the mormon book "the Pearl of Great Price" is the real book, if you want to know what book they find the most holy, I believe.

The Eastern Empire salutes the resistance of the fine Union soldiers who acquitted themselves honorably and admirably. A shame the same couldn't be said about their leaders. It was a bloody month as the Eastern Empire, lead by the elite armored forces of 1st Guards Army, pushed without rest through 40 km of snow and fortifications to the gates of Nashville. Soon the Union and Japanese trespasser with be thrown into the sea.

"elite forces", "trespasser", ho hum. Nothing to see here but simple Russian aggression, taking lands that have belonged to others since the beginning of recorded history.

The Union continues to position forces in case other nations eventually join the obnoxious Russians.

August 1935

The Republic marvels at the cooperation between Das Reich and The Empire, with a huge combined British and German fleet of the coast of The Republic this fleet appears to be under British control but consists of a large part of the German Imperial Fleet.

Just to keep this open:

164 destroyer c's Brits

25tb type 23 German
25 ddz1934 German
10 Konigsberg German
3 Ca Deutchland German
1BB Bayern German
5 BB Queens Eliz Brits
25 Cl Danea Brits
8 CA Hawkins
50 Subs brits
8 E Empire Subs

The Eastern Empire has donated around half a dozen 205 artillery pieces, near a dozen tanks, and 60 AT's to Das ( and more coming) and over 20 T28's to Empire in a reciprocal Lend / Lease program. The German naval contribution while sizable is a small portion of the massive northern fleet... and that is just the northern fleet not including carriers. Given The ridiculous amount of free factories the Republic has been spotted, and the amount of wares given, I didn't think this would be an issue. Is it, Tom? If screen shots are needed to affirm the above specs. they are available if requested, as well as all the equipment donated.

We never said we could not provide equipment to our allies. In fact I started out asking for carriers from England and was basically told no at the time. England has the navy they will continue to receive German ships from me as well. I have no carriers so can not protect them anyway.

What a odd pair who said you cannot provide equipment to a ally read the post again. its meant to be a compliment to your ability to cooperate.

The pics are from my intelligence gathering, and they illustrate the work Bombur has put into the MOD.

For me, given that there has been a vein of strife in some recent matches, and I am new at this game, and was also managing two nations, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't breaking any rules or ethics. You have displayed a gentlemen's approach in discourse from what I have witnessed, and if you read your post, marvel and large could hide secondary meanings. I just wanted to confirm that there wasn't any trouble below the surface, and open and blunt was the most expedient way of coming to that conclusion. Glad all is well with the world... a verse of Kumbaya is in order.

Honestly, that's a fine compliment given your high status--I'm blushing. We geeks who love this digital, turn-based warfare are few and far between, I have been waiting since I was a kid to do battle like this... so, I don't want to be the jackass to rock the boat! BTW Ed gave me one last turn as he was away... next turn it's fully back to 3 V 3.
