I don't think it is possible to hold on to France long enough against a German player who knows what they are doing. You threw the kitchen sink and forced it into late August. That's pretty darn good, but not really good enough to stop a rush on Greece. And I think you got lucky with him not placing his paras to try to cut off the BEF.

You basically got an extra 3 turns out of this as opposed to a budget sized BEF.

Turn 29: September 27, 1940

The UK loses a sub off Greece.

Axis forces are building up at Tobruk.

British carriers try to strike a German fleet at Brunsbüttel but fail.

A fighter leaves the UK for Gibraltar. I'll be very surprised if we don't get some bad weather in the UK next turn.
The UK limits Reinforcements to 100 so we can potentially buy an armoured corps next turn.

U-boats sink 6 merchants and 1 escort.

Italian troops arrive in the east. I'm 90% sure we'll see 1941 Barbarossa.

Your game looking quite similar to mine vs BWvS. He does know what he is doing.France was attacked at the beginning of May surrendered end August despite max BEF effort. I fear more historic dates with Alvaro's forthcoming patch. At least I only lost 1 UK inf xxx though. He did get Greece in 1 turn though using your method. We are now in December '40 I think but I'm 100% sure of '41 Barbarossa. I'm doing the Flavius thing with the Russian inf xxx though I have bought more mech than him.

Germany takes Norway. U-boats take 1 step damage.

I've never had a game be this quiet before. It's given the UK the time to organize and plan a little diversion once Barbarossa starts.

The UK builds 60 landing ships, the US builds 30.

U-boats (there are 6 active) sink 9 merchants and take 2 steps damage.

Carriers cause 3 steps to u-boats.

Norway isn't fully garrisoned so we take control of Bergen and Trondheim.
A division is ready to land at Narvik next turn.

The UK builds a ground attack group. Canada builds a division.

U-boats sink 6 merchants but take 4 steps damage.

Despite good weather, Barbarossa does not start.

We take Narvik. No German reinforcements for Norway.
With the Iron Ore route effectively shut down I think it was a huge mistake for Germany to attack Norway.

Barbarossa begins. 11 rifle corps shatter.

A British corps is sent to Stavanger, as an Italian unit has occupied the resource there.
The UK sends 54 production to the Soviets and builds 20 supply trucks.

In Finland our mech corps make low odds attack against the Finns before withdrawing.

There are some interesting peculiarities about the Axis attack:

-Strong Italian armored presence
-Very weak Axis air power

Ah yes, the stockpile a bunch of points and dump it all at once on rifle armies strat. It's legit, but I do not like it.

I think it is an inefficient use of manpower and in the long run manpower is the biggest resource constraint for the Soviets. I also think it gives up too much ground that could otherwise be held with the much despised rifle corps.

It also locks you in to buying up front a bunch of expensive units at a lower level of experience than might otherwise be the case.

I prefer instead to buy these rifle armies gradually, and with as little impact on the Soviet manpower pool as possible and at a higher average level of experience because you are recycling veteran manpower back into them.

Then it's probably my inexperience that shows. I've never had manpower problems with the Soviets, or indeed any real problems at all.
