Make sure you repair the Polish destroyers with Polish funds before Poland falls and the destroyers become British. Not a huge expense if you wait and let Britain repair them, but every little bit helps in the early game.

Aren't Polish resources best off being spent on Polish units to delay the fall of the country as long as possible?

8th September 1939

Poland

The Germans have fallen into the Polish trap Mwahahahahahaha! Two cavalry brigades are ordered to try and cut off the lead elements of the German 8th and 10th Armies west of Czestochowa, while the third surviving cavalry unit occupies Kutno.

The remaining units of the Poznan, Krakow and Karpaty armies head for Warsaw as quickly as they can - although are each some way short - while the remaining Polish units form up around the capital.

The Polish air force are ordered to assault the lead German panzer formations - but are badly mauled in the process.

The Prusy Army is the only unit able to continue its formation.


Smigly-Rydz to Gamelin: Right, I've got 'em surrounded - I just need you guys to take them in the rear and the war is over!

France
The 1st, 2nd and 3rd Army Groups begin their hot shoe shuffle to new starting positions. I intend to hold two lines Amiens-Nancy and the Maginot Line.

Most of the French MP have been used up in beginning the process of getting their North African troops to mainland France. At least the Armee des Alpes will have some units this time!

United Kingdom

That leaves the British. Not much to report here. The RN in the Med is looking to concentrate on Alexandria and the destroyers squadrons start to take up station in the Western Approaches.

MPP are saved. I want an Engineer ASAP!

If you do not keep some unit in Tunis the Italians will quickly mobilize for war. There is 4 towns the Allies need to stay in until Italy enters. Now the benefit of your strategy if that is what you are doing is you can try to instigate a naval fight to use the French to take the burden when otherwise they will disappear once France surrenders and take a step up in the Naval battle.

Poland
Well it was worth a go I think. Let's face it one way or another the Polish cavalry brigades were dead meat that turn. Better to go out in a blaze of glory as they say.


Normal service has been resumed.....

Having Italy in the war early can actually be turned into an advantage as it might give the French fleet something to do while it's still operational ...

Poland

Before the actual invasion of Poland began the Polish Navy put Operation Peking into action.

Three destroyers and, ultimately, two submarines were able to reach the UK to continue the fight.


Three Polish destroyers: Burza (Storm), Blyskawica (Lightning), and Grom (Thunder) sailed through the Baltic, right under the noses of German surface units that were unable to open fire as the two countries were not then at war....

Maxime Weygand and his Syrian Army are on their way to France. The Garrison has landed in Tunis - will Mussolini have second thoughts? - and the Algerian and Tunisian troops have landed on the Cote D'Azur..

They will also get more income each turn and catch you unprepaired in Africa. Tbh I wouldn't recommend it. Just disband the units as time progresses and you need money.

I have to say given my game plan I am with you nOknOk (sorry Hartmann) but I am now concerned that even though I put a garrison back in Tunis, the AI is not programmed to take this into account and will attack anyway....

That's the trouble with trying to second guess a moron like Il Duce.....

Afaik the script checks each turn and increases the war readiness with a certain percentage. So you should be fine.

The MPP position this turn. The U-boats have yet to make their presence known.

UK - Build an Engineer
France - Save their pennies
Poland - The Poles spend their few MPP on the Modlin Army, while the Prusy Army is ordered to the capital

1st October 1939

Poland

This turn saw only the destruction of the Wyskow Corps southeast of Warsaw. The 14th and 25th Infantry Divisions of the Poznan Army in the west have done a sterling job in remaining intact and stalling German progress from that direction.

The one blot on the copybook is the KOP Garrison which I neglected to move on the first turn This unit could have been useful - but is now too far away to influence events.

Nooooooooo! Apparently that moron Mussolini is now encouraged because there are no troops in Syria

United Kingdom

The Polish destroyers turn up in Scotland and the BEF is here Huzzah! They will be ordered to take up position behind the Somme as part of the Amiens-Nancy line.

Decision time. Do the French Government want to ban the Commies and detain militants? A bit of a no brainer this one as I get an increase in morale for so doing.

Decision time too for the Soviets. Under the terms of the Nazi-Soviet pact the Soviets have free reign in Finland and, having grabbed Eastern Poland, now start the process of collecting in other areas.

Allied

The British still await the appearance of Donitz's U-Boats, but in the meantime the British get a decent haul of MPP.

UK - The British begin research of Anti-Tank and Advanced Aircraft weaponry.

France - The French build 4 Garrison for use as road-blocks.

USA - Begin the research of Industrial Technology

Poland - The Poles spend their precious MPP on building up the Modlin and Karpaty defences.

The French (and their BEF allies) start to form up. A unit is still required south of Luxembourg. In the south, the Syrian Corps has done a volte-face and headed straight back for Damascus.
