Due to the hostile press campaign in Greece and other provocations against Italy, the "Pact of Steel" issued an ultimatum to Greece demanding the cession of Greek territory, which the Prime Minister of Greece, Ioannis Metaxas, rejected. Sadly this means WAR!

Germany and Italy declares war on Greece.

The US press is angry (US Entry roll 4,2 and US Entry marker 325 picked)


1) Does CW or USSR or Free FR align Greece?

2) Where does the Greece forces go?

Germany place the first D on a CP and sinks it. How will Allies place the second D? And the two aborts if the D is placed on a CP?

Will the Notional in Athens be included in the combat? Germany has 5.5 combat factors in the invading/paradropping force. This can be tripled with shore bombardment and ground support. The odds is expected to be 17:4 +2 without notional, or 17:5 +3 with notional. And will CW select blitz or assault in Athens?

The notional in Heraklion has no combat factors and has no relevance.

Edit: I had wrongly written Tirana when I should have written Heraklion. This is now corrected.

The 4 Greek CPs flee Athens and head for Aden. Each one sail separately. The German FTR2 in the East Med initiates a hunt for the escaping ships.

The two first CPs to sail were hunted down, and sunk, by the Italian fleet. The remaining 2 CPs sailed for Aden, but where declined entry into the port. The CPs then continued to Bombay. I hope Bombay works. Otherwise I can go back and change. (Axis intercept rolls were 2,2,5,7 - Allied surprise rolls were 9,7)

LOL I meant to write assault but instead I wrote blitz. Tired it seems but since a 9 was rolled it did not matter.
