stjeand -> The Great Cheese War stSauron Axis NO Sillyflower Allies (4/14/2021 11:23:44 PM)
Where's the cheese?
In a formal letter from the German Government to the leaders of France and England, the German people are tired of being shunned from the dinner table because of their taste in cheeses.
The French may have their Brie and their Camembert...
The English may have their Cheddar and Lancashire...
And even the lowly Belgians have their Fromage...
But we the proud Germans have Limburger and it deserves it place on all the dinner tables around Europe.
Due to this injustice we have decided that a declaration of hostilities are too begin immediately until our cheese demands are met.
Sillyflower and I have restarted due to technical errors the 1940 campaign we were playing.
I dislike the 40 campaign overall but thought to give it a try.
Knowing my BOA experiences, that ended when the game began. The UK has 23 escorts and nearly 400 MM.
The Germans have 2 Uboats who apparently have not left port since the war began so nothing has happened to slow the Allies down. I thought to give it one more go...but if all goes as it did in the last game I will build one sub and that will be all, but I can hope.
The US did nothing...thankfully but so did the Italians and they have twice the economy.
I suspect the UK just repaired all its Inf and build Escorts and MM as did Canada for the past 6 months.
The French thankfully have built very little...no armor means no counter attacks. That will be a nice change of pace.
The Germans decide to thrust into Belgium as they should.
It falls easily with minimal losses, due to careful execution...
7 land, all armor/mech and 3 aircraft, 2 fighters 1 bomber.
Nicely the UK lost 6 in that battle so it went fighters our way.
The Luftwaffe decides to gain some experience and strat bomb Lyon...
3 experience gained with no losses so that is nice.
All bombers are on mission to avoid naval interaction.
The Uboats leave Kiel and head to the South Atlantic. This is the only turn that they will not take losses so I will enjoy the 1 or 2 MM I get to sink before they get hammered by the UK navy.
Ending positions below.
