Belgium surrendered after the XXX in Brussels shattered after receiving 3 casualties after a lot of bombing. A bit disappointing but hopefully the Germans have accrued good amount of fatigue.
As seen above, rain prevented the axis from reaching the French border at any point. The French decide it's more comfortable to stay in their entrenchments rather than risking muddy boots if they advanced into Belgium. Having been taught a well known English taunt, the French set up speakers at the front which blare out the message "come and get us if you think you're hard enough." This may be a mistake, but we shall see. The BEF itself is more interested in the duty-free shops of Calais.
I have not seen such bad weather before. If I wasn't a complete ......(you may add in your own appropriate epithet, gentle reader), I would have some sympathy for my opponent, but that is an emotion beyond my comprehension.
At least the Atlantic has been sub free for a couple of turns. They are presumably upgrading to '40 tech. My escorts already have. all but 1 or 2 french corps have upgrading whether they have AT or assault capability, apart from those on the Maginot line.
The plan: to stop sveint getting Spain and Greece and early enough to wreak more havoc before has to focus on Barbarossa, and stopping him getting Yugoslavia as an ally which means Greece holding on until '41. I don't see him wanting another '42 attack. My other, related priority is to stop him grabbing all of N. Africa + the middle east like he did last time. Keeping all ports garrisoned is key to this, as is keeping the UK safe from successful invasion.
