Evening gentlemen,

We proudly present new AAR with mixed teams:
Orm playing USSR/France/Com Chinese
Mayhemizer playing US/CW/Chinese

Warspite1 and AllenK playing Axis (not sure which major powers they are playing).

Optional rules are almost the same as before, Food in Flames and Limited Overseas Supply are removed.

House Rules:
-We are playing with the en-route interception as before.
-Only strategic bombing allowed as a night mission (all other missions must be performed by day).

I get confused, is this the crap stuff or our best units?

It is hard to tell. I probably wouldn't have scrapped the ART as even a 2 point ground-strike ability can be useful. The downside of keeping it is you almost invariably draw it instead of the better one.

Exactement, and there is just too much other rubbish to buy that I can't see the Italians building both.

The weight of the Japanese attack is centred in the north.

Sep/Oct 1939
Impulse: 1 (Axis)


It looks like, despite the best efforts of Adolf Hitler to find peace, we have war in Europe once more

Neville Chamberlain and Edouard Daladier should hang their collective heads in shame - if only they had really wanted peace like the Fuhrer, surely a deal could have been struck?

War is declared by Germany on Poland (although the Poles were at fault obvs). No alignments.

Germany: Land
Italy: Combined
Japan: Land

- Port Attack: None
- Naval Air: An experimental fighter unit - flying the untested He-112 - is ordered to fly to the North Sea.
- Naval Movement: None
- Strategic Bombing: None
- Ground Strikes:

Germany
Two Stuka formations are ordered to attack key Polish urban areas; Warsaw and Lodz.

Japan
Two Japanese bombers are ordered to assist the army against the defenders of Chengchow.


Well that took for ^&*%ing ever. What was wrong with Paint FFS????

Ground Strike (Cont):

The attack on Lodz was not carried out with sufficient vigour, but the attack on Warsaw was just what Goering ordered.

Apologies for the sub-optimal quality.....

Ground Strike (Cont):

The Japanese bomber attack begin poorly thanks to a thick early morning fog. However, this soon clears and both bomber groups soon find their range.

Rail Movement: None

6th Army
11th Army
12th Army (reinforced by the 2nd Infantry Division)
20th Army
25th Army
28th Garrison Army
Plus supporting AT and ART divisions




Over to AllenK for the German movement.

The Germans move up on Warsaw and Lodz. An INF overruns the ports of Gdynia and Danzig. Polish CP's flee to the UK as the Germans decline to intercept (8 rolled for the overrun. I put them at Newcastle). Polish CA's are scuttled (2 rolled).
