China still at it. More attacks by Japan..leads to some small advances. Economic advances continue...but advances to technology seem to be slower than I would like due to the need to build fighting units.

Has anyone studied the diminishing returns happens in the general economic advances? Does anyone know what the economic advances of 5% is based upon it does NOT seem to be based on the current level of production. Is it based upon the original production costs???

Hmmm... I almost always see a few points in R&R increase and then I try to roughly gauge how many months are left in the game and divide the new points cost into the months left to see if I'll get my money's worth. I think as the game shortens and the point cost rises it def. becomes less point effective... at least that's my guess. Can't wait to hear what the facts are.

Some small Japanese advances...nothing great just slow...economy still growing...I think the economy thing is weird. It is definitely not 5% improvement everytime you use it...Guess I have to look into it when I get the time.

It is actually 5%.

Every time you increase it the change is 5%. The change you see in the unit cost is whatever your current setting of economy is (i.e. 105%), divided by the new cost (105% + 5%)... That is why it seems to be less and less. The higher the number of your current production, the lower the improvement you will see.

It seems to be less and less because it is less and less.

Japan continues to attack China wherever and whenever it can. Continue to build annexes to the cities and improve the economy.

True, the improvement you see is less and less, but the production increase is still 5%. I just wanted to make that clear.

January 1939 Soviet Union

The Red Army enlists the local Kurdish tribesmen in the Caucus Mountains, to patrol the Soviet Unions now long border with pro German Turkey, the Kurd's have no love of the Turkish so they are likely to be very vigilant for possible incursions into Soviet territory.

Germany Jan-Feb. 1939
After demanding that Mannerheim tear up his recent alliance with the Soviets immediately, Hitler flew out of meeting in Switzerand threatening war. With Czechoslovakia siding with France and Britain in January and Finland succumbing to communism in Febuary, German Generals were abuzz throughout the entire armed forces speaking of the imminent invasion of the Fatherland from the East and West.

Italy Jan-Feb. 1939

After many months of negotiations, Bulgaria finally succumbed to Mussolini's overtures, when Italian forces massed on their borders. Now that a clear land route from Germany and Italy to Turkey has been established, trade flows freely. Bulgarian armed forces were immediately assimilated into Italian doctrine.

Japan views with alarm the likelihood that war is coming to the whole world, as Europe seems to descend into the abyss that is war.

Japan continues it's economic advancements and unfortunately it's war with China.

Well the war with China continues...improved another city. Built a chem factory...sure seems to cost a lot for the amount of fuel you get from it.

War has broken out in Europe...a sad commentary on the hardness of countries to negotiate differences.

Germany Mar. 1939

War! After the Fuehrer gave an impassioned speech about the plight of Germans in occupied Czechoslovakia and Poland, and how enemies, jealous of the Fatherland's rebirth, were attempting to surround Germany with plans to attack, the military acted.

Despite the mud and poor weather, the 6th, 1st, and 2nd Armee's rolled into
Poland under the guidance of Generals Leeb, Rundstedt, and Beck. New lighting fast tactics, backed by artillery and mechanized forces, pushed to the edge of Warsaw on two sides. There was great celebration in the city of Danzig after its 'liberation'.

To the south, the 3rd and 4th Armee's and Hungarian Forces, commanded by Generals Mannstein and Kluge, and under the umbrella of a vast air force, crushed Czechoslovakia, took both the industrial center of Brataslavi and the capital Prague, leaving the remainder of the Czech forces stranded in the mountain.

The Mediterranean theater saw far less spectacular results. The Gibraltar fortress shrugged off both the German air and artillery attacks with very little notice.

Italy Mar. 1939

Mussolini seeing wisdom in Germany's righteous cause erected a massive industrial center to supply his forces for war, and then joined in on attacks against Gibraltar as well. Massed bombers and artillery saw substantial results, but the resolute British Forces held their ground in the ruins of the near destroyed fortress.

I think I am getting my AAR in before the Germans get theirs in....?
Of course he has pictures and other stuff I never figured out how to do...anyway with my flaky ISP I need small files and messages to upload.

Japan makes some city improvements and continues it's war with China...some small advances and lots of losses...

Germany Apr. 1939

Amid the rumble to tanks and troops from three sides, Polish citizens watched helplessly from shattered buildings as German troops occupied Warsaw. The victory crushed the bulk of the remaining Polish army, leaving the German forces now in mop up duty.

From the mountains in Turkey there were several probing attacks with reconnaissance in force into the Middle East.

In the Mediterranean, a fleet of French vessels and subs were caught and destroyed by Seawolves off the coast of Spain.

Artillery bombardments from French territories have taken their toll, despite German air superiority. Concern off the situation is growing.

Italy Apr. 1939

After a second month of air and artillery bombardment, General Alfredo Guzzoni directed the assault on the fortified port of Gibraltar. The brutal siege lasted nearly a month, but by the end of March, full control of Gibraltar was in Italian hands, thereby locking off all ally access to the Mediterranean from the west. Hailed as a hero, Guzzoni drew great praise from Mussolini for following El Duce's battle plan without flaw.

Soviet Union Spring 1939

Some Alarm in the Kremlin as Germany carves a swath across central Europe, and advances into the middle east, current thinking is let the capitalist dogs tear each other apart. But there is concern that the dog that emerges from the fight may feel emboldened to take on the Bear.

Thanks brother for the compliment. No app I can think of, although there might be. I should have used Adobi illustrator, but I flim-flammed it with Photoshop and the custom shape tool. Illustrator would make it easy as pie though.

Germany May. 1939

Supposedly impenetrable, the Maginot Line was not only breached, but two fortification beyond destroyed, leaving the underbelly of France exposed. General Mannstein now has two feathers in his cap as he is poised to take Paris.

In the Middle East, Generals Erwin Von Witzleben and Gustav Von Wietersheim have taken the oil fields of Mobul, and after the largest tank battle of the war, the city of Beirut fell into German hands, mostly due to air superiortiy.

But the British have dealt much damage in return as the shipyards north of Hamburg lay in near total ruins. Hitler has sworn that new technologies will end the constant aerial bombardment.

German casualties are beginning to mount and has begun to cause concern among the citizenry that this will be more than the 'short war' that was promised.

Italy May. 1939

Italy too has had much success. After the defeat of British armor outside of Tobruk, they used their air superiority and massed artillery to take Casablanca. This coupled with gaining political and military control over Yugoslavia, mean the Italian empire now has full access to the Atlantic and a clear path to the Middle East.

Japan continues the war with China....lots of losses and little change of the front line.

Economy continues to get boost and another city gets an annex.
