October 1941 : Game's end.
Germany has no way to refresh her armies. Her people are hungry. Any future battles would be in German cities, with subsequent damage the the civilian populations there. The Chancellor has resigned, and is in hiding, rumored a suicide.
Italy has lost her African colonies, and her people have not suffered as the Germans have. It is doubtful she will be able to continue her influence in the Balkan territories.
Japan and China may continue to fight, or the West may impose a ceasefire. The Western navies are very, very strong at this point, and the world is weary of the war.
The war in China was a stalemate, but China was gaining skills to have offensives. Certainly Japan is in much the same position as in January, 1938. The British position in Asia has only become stronger. The Americans are close to entering the war, and they are very interested in the Pacific. The China lobby is working on American sentiments. Japan has not lost as such, but her potential enemies are strong. It turns out that Japan was very wise not to go beyond the China campaign.
The Soviet Union has been quiet and can be thought of playing no role in peace making. There is one factor which may change this - the Red Army is immensely strong. Untested, but very well equipped and Soviet observers have watched every aspect of the war. The USSR will step into a stronger world role, unbloodied.
The USA has immersed from the Depression. The USN is ready to play a strong role. We do not know the strength of the IJN, but the USN has powerful carrier forces, The American people have been prepared to take on a new world role, and, like the USSR, unbloodied.
France and Great Britain did yeoman like service defeating Germany and Italy. France was expected to do well and she did. The British and their Empire grew stronger and stronger.
