What happened to the allied part of this game O.O
It's 'all quiet at the western front'? Doesn't look so from the number of reports coming in from the Axis part...

It's very tempting to look in the axis thread to see how this game develops!

Yes, Ronnie is posting all the game reports for both sides. Don't know why they aren't in global.

Right now it is either S/A '40 or the turn has just ended.

Paris fell at end of J/A to a bad mistake by the Allied player. Japan and Russia are at war, and a lot of Russian units are in Manchuria. A good attack on Harbin just failed when the Allied player rolled a 3.

I debated (with myself at lost!) about that but in the end decided not to duplicate a lot of posts. While 95% of the game reports are neutral comments, the other 5% contains strategy comments and reactions which I wanted to keep in my axis thread.

So if I understand this correctly, the Axis thread and the global comments are the only ones that will be kept up to date?
Well, so far it seems only the Axis one .

That's ok, I 'll check the Axis thread (and keep my mouth shut)... I have my needs !

Hey, guys. Just wanted to let you know that my game with composer99 is still going at a steady pace. We just finished turn 10, March/April 1941 and are almost through the end of turn phases.

I've fallen over a turn behind in my private axis AAR thread about this game. What I'm thinking I'm going to do is stop the "play-by-play" with strategy/tactical comments in the axis thread and post "neutral" info about our game in this thread so all that are interested can follow.

I will then just use my private axis AAR for comments, questions and such on axis strategies/tactics. I will post some "catching" up from previous turns summaries in this thread. Though please be patient. I currently have three games going and dealing with retirement paperwork, which is almost finished. The retirement paperwork that is and not my three games.

Also, who knew during my over 61 years on this planet that my desire for private time was just, "Social Distancing". I must be a man way ahead of his years.

MWiF on-line is the prefect game for us social distancers.

In looking back through this thread I see that no game session reports of any substance have been posted. I'll just start from the beginning and post summaries. Mostly from end of turn in order to start with and continue on with a cohesive narrative.

Turn 1. Sep/Oct 1939. Poland Invaded.

Germany decides not to mess around with the invasion of Poland. The majority of German land, including all three HQ's, and air forces are setup and move against Poland from the start of the game. Shown here is the situation in Poland at the end of the first axis impulse of the game.

Turn 1. Sep/Oct 1939. Axis #3. Poland.

The fine weather continues for the axis and Germany easily finishes off Poland with the capture of the last allied controlled Polish factory in Lodz.

Turn 1. Sep/Oct 1939. Axis #3. Denmark and Malta.

The fine weather also gives the Wehrmacht the opportunity to quickly subdue Denmark. Also, it presents the Italians with the opportunity to grab an undefended Malta.

Note the deployment of the BEF to the North Sea. So the invasion of Denmark must be complete, meaning that control of all hexes bordering the North Sea must be flipped to Germany in order to prevent Gort and his minions for disembarking there and throwing a monkey wrench into German plans. Fortunately for Germany, they have the units on the Danish border, which survived not being flipped during the previous allied surprise DOW impulse, to do just that. That is, flip control of all Danish hexes bordering the North Sea during the surprise impulse and thus locked out the CW from landing in Denmark.

Turn 1. Sep/Oct 1939. Axis #3. Italy Enters the War.

The opportunity to take Malta was just too great. Italy declares war on the CW, but not France. Normally an undefended but in supply Malta would have 1 notional. However, because of the surprise DOW by Italy, Malta's strength is reduced by 1 notional meaning that it can be taken by a single Italian division in the 3- (fine only) or 4-box (fine or rain).

Italy's 1st inf division takes Malta but fails to capture and destroy either of the RN sub groups based there, both of which manage to escape to Gibraltar.

Turn 1. Sep/Oct 1939. End of Turn. Germany.

With Poland and Denmark secure, Germany has begun the transfer of troops and planes from Poland to the West for their coming attacks (i.e., invasions) of the Low Countries and attacks on France.

Turn 1. Sep/Oct 1939. End of Turn. Franco-Italian Border.

Though Mussolini pulled a fast one with Churchill and took Malta, he's decided to remain neutral with France. Though neutral, the level of mistrust between both sides means sizable Italian and French forces are arrayed against each other on the border.

Turn 1. Sep/Oct 1939. End of Turn. Egypt.

The Italians brazenly push forward into Egypt irritating Mr. Churchill just that much more.

Turn 1. Sep/Oct 1939. End of Turn. East Africa.

There's no end to El Duce's thirst for world domination. Italian forces push into CW controlled Sudan and British Somailaland.
