41 JA i6:
Axis slaughter of Allies continues. When I joined game in spring 40 things looked bleak for Allies, but over the last 7 turns things have only become much worse. At this point I'd give allies maybe a 1% chance to win this game (and I think that's generous). There isn't really any bright spot. USE is poor, CW prod has been hampered for most of the game by lack of oil in Burma & NEI. China was lost with no intervention by SU and relatively few JP losses, Axis losses in France were light, Egypt is lost to excellent axis attacks even while one of the most successful Barb 41's that I've ever witnessed roars through Russia, RN transports obliterated in Red Sea, and on and on. Apart from the continued Axis dismantling of the Allies, as each turn passes I like 1d10 with divisions less and less. I feel it makes the attacker's job even easier.
Soon this game will be like beating on babies with a hammer as the allies' ability to resist dwindles.
CW naval, SU land.
2/3 of the remaining RN transport force sails. Dutch TRS and CW TRS both sail to CSV. One is carrying a 5 range Spitfire, while the other picks up a shorter range FTR from Gib.
