The French, Belgians and Dutch continue to harass the Germans across their borders. The extensive bombardment, nearly every border hex is hit, reduces readiness, as it destroys forces.
The British use the RAF to the same effect. The Spitfire, with superior numbers, has hurt the Luftwaffe. Great Britain has also attacked the U-boats with aircraft from Coastal Command, escorted by the RAF. We have had some success, but the U-boat fleet is very large. We are not sure where all elements of the U-boats are, but they are surely up to no good.
The Chinese are suffering under the Japanese air attacks, and the IJN continues to attack at Canton. Our artillery is active, and we sortie out for an attack when we can.
