I think this is going to be a challenging game for the Allies, I am clearly facing a competent Axis commander.
The Netherlands fell on turn 3, Denmark is conquered.

The UK has built 2 air superiority groups and 5 large corps.
France has built 4 large corps.
Canada has built 4 escorts.

The Allies have turned off all naval repairs and upgrades.

U-boats have been a nuisance but have suffered 8 step losses.

Turn 14: March 1, 1940

The weather is not cooperating, Belgium falls. The UK builds a large corps and Canada builds an escort.

The weather stays clear, which is disastrous for the Allies. At least the Germans suffer more casualties then the French when they attack.

With the help of the RAF, the French push back the XIX panzer corps, taking 14 step losses, causing 19.
At least that panzer corps is out of action for several months.

France builds 30 supply trucks (should have done so sooner).

More "good" weather. The French put up a good fight, and while we lose 2 hexes, the Germans lose slightly more casualties.

We could counter-attack at 3 to 1 but let's have the Germans exhaust themselves instead.
The Allied air forces need a rest.

Canada builds an escort, the UK builds another large corps.

I am really beginning to wonder if the Weather table is accurate or if the weather die rolls are broken. This is the 2nd recent AAR where the Axis have gotten 3 Clear weather turns in March. The odds of that are less than 1% (or .008 as SillyFlower would say). So the odds of it happening in 2 recent games are almost infinitesimally small.

Yes, I got a spell of clear weather like this in my mirror match with Magic Missile. The odds of that happening are super low. But here we are. I am also wondering if the weather table is reflecting what the code is doing.

That said: having this extra bit of clear weather is not as great for the Germans as you'd think. They cannot push deeply into France without their new construction armor and air and that stuff only begins to arrive in April. Clear weather in March is meh, unless you need it to bump off Belgium. (In which case is it is most welcome.)

If you stick your neck out with just the couple of panzers you start with, you're likely to get a bloody nose.

Turn 17: April 12, 1940

Rain finally comes to France and gives us a breather.

The UK builds yet another large corps, we're going for a huge land army!

The Allied air forces are hurting. We bomb the XIX Panzer once (after screenshot).

Canada builds an escort. US builds a strategic bomber.

France counter-attacks the 2nd SS Panzer (personally I never build SS units) and inflict 15 steps.
Allied forces also push back two German infantry corps.

The fighting has been savage, with severe losses on both sides. The Allied air forces are severely depleted.

The Germans surge forward, and even strategic bomb Rouen.

Time for the British to fall back.

You said something about WW1? lol

This just confirms my suspicion: even the largest British commitment will only briefly delay the fall of France if the German knows what they are doing. You might have gotten an extra month out of this.

Is that really worth a big commitment? You had better hope he doesn't decide to bypass Paris for a bit and try bagging the BEF west of Rouen. That's what I'd do. I think I could easily gobble up at least 4 of those corps. This is what paratroopers are for...

I've been keeping an eye on the paratroopers. The BEF is fairly safe. They've served their purpose, and will soon have a very different purpose, which shall soon be revealed...

Turn 25: August 2, 1940

Paris falls and Italy joins the war. U-boats are a problem and sink 7 merchants.

France announces it is willing to negotiate a surrender. The UK sets up in Bretagne and ships two corps to Gibraltar (and on to Egypt).

Oh and the French fleet unsuccessfully searches for the Italian fleets.

Turn 26: August 16, 1940

Allied raiders sink 8 Italian merchants, u-boats sink 3 British merchants.
France surrenders and panzers shatter a UK corps.


I wanted to hold out in Bretagne but I suppose it's time to leave. A fighter and a corps
heads to Gibraltar/Egypt, the rest head home.

The UK declares war on and occupies Syria.

The UK builds 2 escorts, Canada builds one.

We don't really have anything worthwhile to strike back with. At least our subs scores some hits.
The Greek fleet is all but sunk and we leave a division in Crete.

A British corps leaves Brest for Gibraltar, a last one remains but the Jerries will get them.

Canada builds an escort, the UK builds 10 supply trucks and 4 escorts. I'm just going to shut down those u-boats once and for all.
I'm estimating that the Germans have 6 u-boat units.

By spring 1941 they should be under control.

The fleet in Crete uses an oiler, 2 left.

That is one expensive landing in Greece, he burned a lot of amphibs doing that. 270 production points by my count for 180 landing craft. And he let you slip into Crete, which is going to be a headache for him long term.

But I suppose he had no choice but to rush this given the lateness of the year.

Turn 28: September 13, 1940

Greece surrenders and now we have Yugoslavia as an enemy too. Extremely bad news.

Lend lease destroyers arrive, u-boats should be less of a problem.

The first British units from France arrive in Egypt.

The British fleet from Greece sinks an Italian CL/DD squadron (it must have been in Fleet stance). It returns to Alexandria.

So far British carriers have unsuccessfully been hunting for u-boats. They will move on to other duties.

Casualties so far (I'm very happy with the heavy German losses):
