With the fall of Paris the French will to fight collapses and the Germens setup a puppet government in Vichy. French N.A. and Middle East also submit to the new leaders in Vichy. With Franch effectively conqured, Japan annexes French Indo-China, raise tension leves in the area.
Vichy established so no more Frenchies for me. Also lose supplies from Middle East and Siagon.
All is not glum though.... Germans pull sub away from Bergen, , and troops too. I attack with BEF against paras on road to Iron Ore but only kill 7 for 16 rifle II's... damn mountains!
Discover Carrier Air base being established in northern Denmark. Shore and aerial bombardment only kill one plane, slightly damage runway.
New Level Bomber II's come in from Boston, gained when Paris fell, so I make a large raid, 10 Ftr's, 5 LB I's and 2 LB II's, against bridges around Antwerp. Destroyed them all! More bridge busting next turn as more US and now Canadian LB II's being built. Also some US fighters on the way in case he desides to defend....
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty & well preserved body,
but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out & proclaiming "WOW, what a ride!"
