10 January 1938

The Soviet Union wishes the workers of the world a happy New Year, however there are signs that this wish will be unfulfilled. The dynamic of so many new and/or dissatisfied nations and the rearmament going on does not bode well.

The Soviet State provides a home for hope, a beacon for the oppressed worker caught in the toils of Capitalism. Look to Moscow for a steadfast friend in troubled times. The Red Army is improving its capabilities to defend the worker's state.

Joseph Stalin

Game restarted due to error with version 223j new version 223k is now in the folder.

A question asked was how does the game now proceed, answer just the same as before as long as the player who starts game, that being the Germans, uses the newest version that means the the game is set in that version and it does not matter if subsequent players use older versions, the file contains the new game settings.

Loaded my T2 for China, put my passoword in, then received a casualty list, then it said I wiped my log book (or something to that effect) and that I might be doing something dubious? It was my first load...and I have zero reason to cheat: China ain't taking over the world. Any wisdom?

No wisdom may be a conflict with security software, you have clearly done nothing wrong so no worries. Just ignore the message that's what I do when I read the message.

This will happen without fail if you are using more than one machine to do your turns. If you have a machine at a vacation home for example, or a laptop and a desktop.

March 1938 Germany

German intelligence report a attempt at a coup in Roumania by British intelligence, the highly classified photograph shows the British agents in action, Britons top spy (on the left) Cyril Fortiscue Fotherington-Smyth attempting to bedazzle the Romanians with his dancing bear routine, unfortunately the Romanians did not fall for it. And Cyril was shot.

May 1938 Germany/Italy

Turkey joins with its ancient foe Italy in a rare show of Mediterranean solidarity, Austria also joins Italy but its true leanings are towards Germany Italy shall honours those aspirations.

30 May 1938

The USSR cannot allow the Italo-Turkish Fascists to threaten our southern flank. The USSR has declared war on Italy.

The Italian coup was a desperate move to prevent a Soviet friendly Turkish government from solidifying her relationship with the USSR.

GB/France

Never mind the war mongering cries of the German; it was a simple mis-understanding in Romania...

Peace is still reigning among the major European powers. There is a new player in Europe, Russia has moved in!

The Peoples Army of China has earned it's second big victory over the superior technology of Japanese Imperialist forces with the spilling of a river of blood. The will of the Chinese people has been mobilized, and Japan shall be crushed in the waves of our soldiers. But, how many precious lives will be lost while the world sits idle and watches the atrocities being committed. Will China stand without aid against this barbaric and unwarranted aggression?

Comrade Mao,

We are brothers in philosophy, but each of us holds the life of a nation in our hands. In the draft you sent us of your speech to be presented in October you write
quote:

Chinese Communists must therefore combine patriotism with internationalism. We are at once internationalists and patriots and our slogan is "Fight to defend the Motherland against the aggressors".

Both the Soviet Union and the Chinese Communists must seek the best path forward to safeguard our precious homes of Communism. Actively joining in your battle is the wrong strategy at our stage of development. It would jeopardize our task of protecting the Soviet Union.

You have the will and resources to prevail, as you wrote
quote:

We the Chinese nation have the spirit to fight the enemy to the last drop of our blood, the determination to recover our lost territory by our own efforts, and the ability to stand on our own feet in the family of nations (December 27, 1935)

Comrades, be sure we wish you well!

Joseph Stalin

Italy June 20th 1938

The German embassy have given the Italians the following information stating that the Soviets, have expressed a desire for peace. Its refreshing to find the Germans can be wrong at least in matters of diplomatic assessments. however the obvious conclusion is that the Soviets are sore losers in a race for control of Turkey a race in which Italy was a rank outsider and as it turns out the winner of the race, and contrary to Soviets assertions the most favoured nation from our records in January 1938 was Germany not the Soviet Union, that position alternating from month to month first Germany then the Soviets.

But that is as they say history, first shock for the Soviets is that they are no longer the Big Naval Dog in the Black Sea there is a bigger dog on the lose, one Soviet Capital ship accounted for, the other to follow shortly. Other shocks are shortly to follow.

Great Britain starts as MFN in Turkey. I assume you influenced Turkey with Germany in January 1938. The Soviet Union did also, and at the end of the Soviet turn we had 511+3 and MFN status.

At the end of each turn the USSR was MFN with 617, 724, 831, 940 at respective turn ends.

Germany played a discord card on the USSR in Turkey on the May 30 turn. This left us at 918. The last three influences we tried gained 104, 105, 105 and if we received 105 we would have won Turkey at 1023.

Of course we never got the chance. Our estimate is that Italy had a 11.3666/100 role, and made it. Nice roll.

British at the beginning of the month German at the end, no mention of the Soviets. By June we have a two horse race pipped at the post by the nag making a run on the far rails. The Germans are treating this with a more sporting and philosophical outlook tinged with a smidgen of Humour.

27 June 1938

quote:

"Mother, thank you for the clipping on German humor. It is hard to be "sporting and philosophical" knowing the foreign shore holds nothing but godless communists, and disgruntled Turks. Already fifteen of our modern destroyers, proud new construction, lie beneath the waves. How I wish we were on the other side of the narrow straits. This Black Sea may prove black indeed for Italy.
I understand that the government is claiming a great victory here, but enemy losses are a light cruiser, five old destroyers, some decent subs, and some old ones. We have shot down planes also, but the officers say the losses are more a draw than a victory.
The sailors are not finished by any means, and we all think we can finish the Red Banner fleet off, but there will be costs, and for what?

The Duce listens too much to the sporting, philosophical, humorous Führer.

Your loving son,

Mario"

This letter was captured on a supply boat returning from the RM fleet. Supply interdiction is already happening.

Observers at the straits counted as many as 74 modern destroyers in the RM force. Unless they were fooled by ships sailing in a circle this indicates Italian production of warships. Italy is now an ally of Germany, and the USSR reiterates that an Axis occupied Turkey is counter to Soviet Strategic policy.

The Italian Main Line of Resistance in Turkey has not yet been located, but we expect Ankara to be defended. The Red Army knows it has a fight on its hands. We have begun to bring some extra forces south, without stripping the defenses of the Motherland. We are ready for this battle to be the first of many, and we fully expect a long war.

27 June 1938

Parliament meets for an emergency session to discuss the "Turkish" incident. The Italians pulled off a major Coup and then allied with Germany...GB cannot and must not stand for these developments. The Middle East shall never be in jeopardy from the fascist powers of Europe.

Even though the British value freedom; the Soviets are now an ally of the British government and we will work together to fight the menace of Central Europe.



Parliament has declared war on Italy. Germany reciprocated and is not at war with Great Britain. It seems The War To End All Wars did not end all wars...

27 June 1938

A recent dispatch was broadcast for benefit of Red Fleet morale...

"The Royal Navy and Royal Air Force to immediately seek and destroy every ship of the RM." Churchill to all British Commanders.

The Big Dog in the Black Sea is now going to be THE Big Dog in the World...The Royal Navy sails again!

The UK home Fleet loses some 5 capital ships plus some minor vessels to the Luftwaffe, the Luftwaffe suffered relatively light casualties. Some 10 to 12 thousand British seamen lost.

The Dutch are pushed back to Amsterdam with four infantry divisions mostly wiped out. The 4th and 7th Panzer Armies and breaking the Dutch front lines assaulting the city of Amsterdam inflicting substantial casualties on the Dutch.

Germany attempted a coup on the Yugoslavians without success.

The Turks withdrew from the advancing Soviets and British.

The Soviet Baltic fleet is down to Two Surface vessels the Октябрьская революция: October Revolution is reported badly damaged and listing the only surviving Soviet Destroyer also badly damaged.

25 July 1938

A total of 20 DD2 have been lost to Soviet Forces by the Italians in the Black Sea. The Red Banner fleet has withdrawn from Turkish waters for repairs.

The RM brought 15 SS2 into the battle too. Until the Soviet Navy returns the Italian destroyers and submarines can run ASW exercises while waiting for the excitement of bombing raids. Alternatively they can exit through the straits and see if rumors of Royal Navy warships in the area are true.

The Soviets were mistaken about Ankara being defended, but there is a concentration of Italian units in Istanbul.

July 1938 GB

The British have moved substantial assets to Turkey. Istanbul is now under siege. Massive amounts of supply are being interdicted from Italy to North Africa and Turkey. Istanbul is doomed in the not to distant future; which will open the way to Black Sea for the RN. The RM will likely not fair well...

In other operations, the British continue to prepare their homeland against the substantial air power of the Luftwaffe.

August 38 Germany/Italy

Germany captures the cities of Brussels and Amsterdam, the Germans after the Declaration of war by the British reacting well to a quickly changing strategic situation. A war that Germany did not start but we will stand by our ally Italy after all how would history view us if we did not.

The Italians now facing two major powers in Turkey are gloomy at the prospect of losing the entire Turkish Army.

22 August 1938

The Soviet Union and her allies were distressed at Axis leanings in Persia. The Persian Premier's sudden illness resulted in a call for foreign doctors and a French and Soviet team both were sent. The French team was delayed, and when a crisis came up the Soviet doctors intervened but were unable to save him. The new government looked at the power of the Red Army units to the north, and the many British units in the east, and decided to capitulate when pressed by a Soviet ultimatum. Persia's resources will be valuable in what is now a war spread across the globe.

In Turkey Soviet artillery and air power bombard Istanbul, as British assets approach the city. The Soviet recon planes can see both sides of the straits. To the north swift Italian destroyers flit about. Coming from the Med are squadron upon squadron of massive ships sailing under the White Ensign. What a spectacular battle is to come. The Red Banner fleet is nearly repaired and hopes to join in the battle and add to the 20 destroyers they, and the Red Air Force have sunk.

22 August 1938

The British have arrived at the Gates of Istanbul. The bombardment with a massive Royal Navy surface fleet has commenced. Air strikes and British artillery bombardment followed. Istanbul will fall soon.

The Italians foolishly moved south from Benghazi and were hit hard by airstrikes. Italy will soon be removed from all of Africa and Asia Minor as a whole.

The RM's days are limited, upon Istanbul falling, so will the RM.

Meanwhile, France has prepared the defense of her homeland along with the British. The British continued bombing raids into Germany and also started airstrikes on the German invading forces. The French are bolstered by support from her ally and will continue to fight for every inch of ground.
