Turn 15 - 15th March 1940

The war continues to hot up.

The Soviets win the Winter War.

In China 4th Army survives by the skin of its teeth (down to 1-point before the Japanese had nothing else to attack with). The attacks around Chengchow hurt but were much less effective. Chinese fighters were hit - I may need to take them out of the firing line for a while....

Turn 15 - 15th March 1940

The Luftwaffe turn on the Armee del'air once more. The French suffer but I'm hoping the recent upgrade hurt the Germans too because the subsequent attack on 9th Army proved unsuccessful.

We're now in Spring so I guess I can expect an attack anytime now....

Turn 16 - 29th March 1940

I'm asked once again about Singapore - and once again I tell them where they can stick their 200MPP.

I spend 175 MPP on Ground Attack Research for the Soviets.

I spend 175 MPP on Advanced Fighters for the Indians. I also purchase two Garrisons.

I purchase a CV with the US.

I bring the French air force up to full strength.

With the British I continue to upgrade naval units.

I decide to try and hold the fort east of Changsha for one more turn and move the CCCXXII Corps into the hex vacated by the shot 4th Army.... I suspect that is a suicide mission but it needs to be done.

Turn 17 - 12th April 1940

Well I wasn't wrong!!!

All hell broke loose on that turn....

Let's see if I can put this in some sort of sensible order (I can't see an ability to stop the game which is frustrating).

First off Reynaud replaced Daladier as French Prime Minister. Then the Germans declared war on the Low Countries

The Germans also undertook Weserubung - presumably via a Decision as there was no actual fighting. Norway and Denmark are now under the jackboot.

The Germans quickly end all resistance in the low countries and then move on to France. German troops are repulsed at the border but paratroopers have landed behind the Maginot Line....

The US get a CV and destroyer - both of which go to the Pacific.

The French get an HQ

But first, let's see what that development in China is all about. It looks like a Chinese Warlord or some such has proclaimed his own state!

There don't seem to be any units with this territory but let's hope the Japanese take some time to suppress the revolt. The Japanese have been using their carrier aircraft to add to Chinese losses but - apart from the expected loss of one corps - these have been manageable this turn.

I move no units this turn but am able to bring all up to strength.

Turn 17 - 12th April 1940

The British purchase a fighter unit.

One thing I must achieve this turn is to remove the Fallschirmjager with as little dislocation to my frontline as possible.

5th and 8th Armies are tasked with this job and succeed with minimal loss.

Thank-you.

Re the puppet state I think it would be helpful to clarify that when the message pops up. I know little about the Sino-Japanese war and when I saw what looked like the Chinese flag in the hex, I thought perhaps there was some kind of revolt. Thank-you for clarifying .

Turn 17 - 26th April 1940

I get messages that British Morale has dropped but then raised again as Churchill becomes PM. I'm also asked if I want to occupy Iceland and I say YES (cost of 25MPP).

I'm also told that the British mobilise in Egypt and get some extra troops. Italy joins the Axis....

I'm asked, as the Soviets, if I want to spend 50MPP to begin equipping for Winter warfare. Another no-brainer as far as I can see and I say YES.

Another quiet time on the convoy front.

Turn 18 - 10th May 1940

That was an eventful turn! The Italians declare war, the British get a pummelling and the Japanese notch up the pressure.

I thought it was going to be fairly quiet in the west as the Germans needed to re-build their units after the Low Countries campaign. However the Luftwaffe went to town against the British and French fighters and then, quite unexpectedly, the German 3rd Army appeared on the Belgian coast and almost wiped out the BEF. The German XVIII Corps then finished the job and advanced into the hex that was once occupied by the main unit of the British Army....

That leaves just two British Corps in the field. I wasn't expecting that to happen - not without the Germans even needing panzers....

Turn 18 - 10th May 1940

The Italians only move appeared to be on the Franco-Italian border. However, they appear to have got little return for their attacks - and indeed came off worse as III Corps tried to make progress along the coast but instead came up against a determined defence by the French XV Corps.

Turn 18 - 10th May 1940

In China the intensity of Japanese pressure against Chengchow and Changsha ramps up Significantly. Japanese forces in the far north appear to have moved away - if only temporarily - and Japanese carrier aircraft are pummelling Chinese forces in advance of attacks by the army. 41st and 42nd Armies are hit hard east of Chengchow, and II Corps suffers casualties to the north of Changsha. The only good news is that the Japanese are taking losses too and unless they have reserves, I am hoping they will need some R+R.

Turn 19 - 24th May 1940

The British get reinforcements in the form of a DD and a fighter unit. Two Indian Garrisons also arrive.

The French get a tank unit.

The US get to Logistics Level 1.


I really want to save with the Chinese so that I can buy an Army for the southern area. However I have to ensure that all units are at full strength to meet the Japanese challenge.

I bring back the Chinese fighters, now re-built, and place them in Chungking where hopefully they can provide some level of cover for both the cities under threat.

After reinforcement I have 168MPP left. If I can get a relatively quiet turn next, I may be in a position to buy an Army.

One thing I am considering is attacking the Japanese 3rd Army, which is in contact with two of my armies and two corps south of Chengchow. I decide to hold off until I get my next advance in Infantry Weapons (66% toward the total) as one bad defeat could open the door to the Japanese.

Once again I press the wrong button (switching between screens is deadly if you forget that you've highlighted a unit already) and 'attack' with XII Corps . I was right not to risk attacking with the Chinese as XII Corps receives a bloody nose and inflicts no loss on the enemy....


Post this picture XII Corps loses two points after the accidental attack. It moves away and CXXX Corps in IChang moves north to cover - leaving the city unguarded.

Time to look at the navy next. Firstly here at the current convoy routes (and the MPP being transported) that the Allies need to protect.The US to UK and UK to USSR lines are not yet active (in white).

Turn 19 - 24th May 1940

What do the British have to defend these and meet their other tasks with?

The forces look distinctly unbalanced - I don't like the lack of destroyers available.There is only one destroyer counter on the reinforcements track - and that is not until Sep/Oct.....

The plan will be to utilise the French Navy as much as possible in the short time it has left.

Turn 19 - 24th May 1940

I decide to evacuate the RN from Malta and bring the Mediterranean Fleet together off Alexandria.

I also move the army in Egypt behind the Nile.

In France I bring the two remaining British Corps behind the Somme.

I purchase an Army to replace the lost BEF.

With the French its a case of bringing what I can up to strength and hoping.

With the British moving behind the Somme the French retreat also. The hinge of the defence falls on 3rd Army south of the Luxembourg border... I hope this move will help as the Germans mostly will need to move before attacking.

The French fleet will concentrate in the Mediterranean.

My main game is WitPAE to which I am addicted and I'm also posting on my Sicily game on TOAWIV. I'm thinking I'll try a crusader scenario next there since it's such a whirling crazy battle. But, I"m liking this game and may plunk down a few shekels to pick it up!

Turn 19 - 24th May 1940

The US Research Production Technology and Industrial Technology. I have no idea when to start switching to production and what to buy navy wise - but I'll just go with gut feel and see what happens...

I do nothing with the Soviets.

So lets see what the Germans do now - I'm sure it won't make for comfortable reading.

As I click the turn button, a decision pops up. I will say YES to this although its perhaps intriguing to see if this forces the Italian fleet out to play. I also say no as I don't know if I would have the possibility to re-route later on.
