October 1938

The Czech people decided to join the Greater Reich. The Czech coal mines will be useful for our defensive build up.

Italy: More Fiat G.50īs join the Regia Aeronatica, while the new L6/40 tanks also roll out of the production lines

Japan: After the operations in Hainan are finished, the Heavy Warships of the Imperial Navy turn their attention to Hangchow. The city is reduced to ruins, but these ruins are still guarded by thousands of Chinese soldiers
In the North Front, a Japanese offensive was stopped by Chinese hagtag militias, despite our massive superirity in artillery, aircraft and tanks. More than 13.000 Japanese soldiers were killed or captured by the enemy. The loss of 60 of the Type 95 light tanks is very worrying to the Japanese High command. The Japanese commander commited suicide in the battlefield.

Nov/1938

-Germany is currently occupied with the pill.... I mean economic development of Czechkoslovakia.

-The Duce is so enthusiastic with the new L6/40 that he ordered an armoured division to be created with these tanks. Some advisors tried to explain him that this tank is slightly better than a tankette, but he didnīt pay attention to them.

-Japan is back to the somewhat ineffective but less risky business of killing the Chinese with artillery and aircraft

We still have very little information on the German and Italian force distribution. This means we speculate endlessly.

Hangchow is taking a horrible pounding.

Everyone is awaiting what the labs have produced in technology.

Hangchow was blasted by IJN surface bombardment.

6 February 1939

Italian Forces expansion was halted by a shortage in supplies

Germany builds a chemical factory

Japan is running out of fuel due to the intensive use of its battleships. The bombardment of enemy units by artillery and aircraft is giving disappointing results. A chemical factory was built in the Home Islands, it will hopefully alleviate our fuel shortages.

Rearmament is the policy across all borders, but will it prevent or encourage warfare.

So far there has not been any European war, but can Peace hold?

3 April 1939

The peaceful landscape is marred by continuing war in China.

China is trying to get Rifle1 rather than conscript, but so very few can be produced. The ratio is about 3-1 or 4-1, so conscripts are necessary.

Japan is using a lossless tactic, bombarding rather than trading their more valuable troops for our conscripts.

Austria decided to join the community of Germany speaking nations.
Hitler: Maybe we will be able to conquer all the world with diplomatic maneuvers, are you sure we must buy so many tanks?
Goebbels: My Füeher, I fear you didnīt read the game rules....
Hitler: Well.....

Italy is too busy by improving its economy and inviting nations to join the new Roman Empire.

Japan finally made a land attack in China, results were deemed good and no official commited suicide, so these are good news.
Nakajima presented its new fighter, the Ki-43, itīs said to be superior to the Bf-109D. An order of 500 aircraft was placed.

Hungary joined Germany, Regent Horthy resigned and was offered a position in the Kriegsmarine. "I miss the sea", said the old Admiral "Ruling a landlocked country is not funny". He is deeply impressed by the new Battlecruisers put under his command.

Italy developed a heavy Tank, said to be a license built copy of the Soviet T-28.

Japan killed a few thousand conscripts but gained no ground. The first Ki-43īs arrive to China, tey will allow the Japanese bombers to strike deep in Chinese territory.

29 May 1939

Things are quiet, "too quiet", as some would say. The Axis powers have complained for years, and have rearmed, but are not actively at war except for the ongoing war in China. Perhaps they do not want the United States to start thinking of international involvement.

We have heard rumors about September 1939. We have little information but evidently the German military thinkers have given political leadership that date as one where readiness will be adequate.

Germany is starting to reorganize its Army to make reinforcements easier. The same will be done with their allies forces.
A pause in diplomatics activity also will gave us much needed resources and time to organize the exploit... I mean, the management of the economy of our new acquired lands.

The Rumanian government also understood the economic and military benefits of joining the Greater Fascist Co-prosperity sphere and signed an alliance with Italy. The Italian armed forces are going to receive more advanced tank models in the next months as the M11/39 will enter production. On the bad news, the Bolsheviks took power in Bulgaria and the country now is a Soviet satellite.

The Japanese Army is becoming more proficient at killing Chinese, but, still, no territory was gained. Fuel is still a limiting factor to military operations, and a recent attempt to signed an alliance with Netherlands failed due to British pressure.

26 June 1939

The USSR has encouraged Bulgarian troops to join the defenders of the Motherland. Currently police forces are present in Bulgaria to maintain order. Military units have moved out.

France reinforces border troops as German and Italian troops are all about.

Great Britain has reorganized the Belgian forces which joined an unrestricted alliance with Britain and France. British, Indian and Australian forces are guarding the oil resources of the Indies. Rumors of Japanese interest abound.

American submarines paid a port call at La Coruna and noticed nothing out of the ordinary in the Italian military there.

China is unhappy with the losses caused by Japan, and is calling up a new class of conscripts.

Hitler is pretty sure the alliances bewteen the so called western democracies are directed against Germany, the Army was placed in high alert.

Italy is reorganizing the Balkan Armies so they can achieve the (extremely high) standards of the Italian Army

Japan had less success this month

24 July 1939

The USSR continues to reinforce her borders with the Axis states.

France and Great Britain have no aggressive moves planned, but are building up defensive positions.

The USA is isolationist, but active. We scouted out the IJN and found the Kids But doing evolutions with four carrier air groups acting as a single force. This give us ideas.

China is trying to secure the areas not already under Japanese control.

Ago 1939


Berlin

Hitler: This is unacceptable, itīs clear the British are going to attack us, what are those plans for a preemptive war?

Guderian: Well, we were waiting to attack after the Winter

Hitler: If we wait more they will be much better prepared

Guderian: Our tanks are not ready, most of our forces are made of ridiculous PzII armed with 20mm guns, we are just starting the production of the PzIV, besides this, we were just about to attack Poland....

Hitler: The Polish are our friends, no need to attack them, those treacherous Belgians and Dutch are much more dangerous

A few days latter....

Hitler: 700 Hurricanes? Thatīs impossible!

Goering, unfortunately, itīs true, we lost 110 aicraft over Belgium. We destroyed many Dutch aircraft, however.

Hitler: For some reason I think it wonīt go well. What about our panzer divisions?

Von Rundstedt: We are close to Amsterdam, but our artillery is delayed, we were poised to attack Poland, until you decided they were our friends....now I fear those 700 Hurricanes, I hope our new Bf-109īs will be able to counter them.


Mussolini is worried with the weakness of their German friends, maybe I should stay neutral.....

Japan: More of the same....and the best Naval fighter worldwide has just entered production.

Germany is shocked, while Amsterdam was captured and moderate losses were inflicted to the British, the allies have thousands of aircaft over France and achieving air superiority over the battlefield is now an impossible task. Priority was given to our new fighter, the Bf-109E. To make things even worse, the French has built a big heavy tank force in the Maginot line.

18 September 1939

Poland has joined the Allies and will surely distract the Germans a bit.

The RAF and naval Air attacked the Germans again and caused heavy losses among the enemy modern fighters. Some damage was done to land forces too.

The RN has modern carriers supporting the land campaign, and waiting to test themselves against KM submarine and surface forces.

The USA and USSR are both preparing for their coming clash with the Axis.

Oct 1939

The Luftwaffe is taking a beating over France, even the Bf-109E is suffering aginst the hordes of enemy fighters. We hope the rains will allow time to replace our squadrons. Poland was invaded after its government pledged an alliance with the Western allies.

Italy is not interested in war

Japa: business as usual....

16 October 1939

The Poles cut off and destroyed a German division, and are actively resisting the invaders. The French bombarded German positions.

The RN used air and destroyer assets to sink four SS1 "ducks" near the Thames mouth. The RAF and RNAS were active and reduced the Luftwaffe presence in the West.

The USA and USSR are carefully watching events. China is replacing losses as they occur.

16-Oct 1939
German forces captured Poznan
The loss ratio in air to air battle still favors the allies but the margin is smaller now. The Bf-109E is performing well.
The Germans are deeply impressed with the Heavy tanks in the Anglo-French arsenal, we had nothing comparable to them.
A new heavy tank was developed by Italy
Japanese forces still unable to advance in China, another aircraft carrier entered servive with the Imperial Japanese Navy.

13 November 1939

The Soviet Union and the United States continue to prepare for a possible entry into the European war.

France and Poland are putting up resistance and hitting the Germans when they can.

Great Britain continues to use the RN and RAF to hit at the Germans. Imperial troops are rallying to the flag, and we are preparing for possible attacks from Germany's allies.

-Danzig is back to the Motherland

Japan
-No significant events in the war against China.

Poland is holding out, but the lines are thin.

France and Great Britain are hitting the Germans while Poland is in play.

The USA is becoming fed up with the wars in China and Europe and is re-examining isolationism.

China is unhappy with the Japanese strength.

The USSR is carefully adjusting to the new situation across its borders.

5th February 1940

The Poles are holding on, but are not able to do much in the way of offense. The French artillery snipes away at the Germans.

The British notice sinking of vessels in transit about Europe - yes, the U-boats are out. We found a pack of three SS3 U-boats and sank them, losing 1 SS1. The RAF attacks Luftwaffe fighters where we find them. We have numbers on our side.

The United States has ended isolationism on the 7th try. We did not offer an alliance to the British and French yet, but we will soon. America is a strong nation.

4 March 1940

The conflict has a significant new element. The United States has made alliances with Great Britain and France. She has not declared war on the Germans.

The British, French and Poles are all fighting well. The Germans suffered losses in SS3 U-boats, Panzers, and Bf-109E.

The USA has sent forces to the British Isles, and they are located on the west coast. The Germans do not want to attack these locations. The United States also will vigorously act to prevent any Axis penetration of the nations of the western hemisphere.

Germany controls nearly all of central Europe, and she has two allies who can enter the war, but the USA is very powerful. The USSR is also very strong. The Axis will have to tread carefully!
