July 19, 1940

5 U-Boats are only able to sink 1 MS and take 2 more hits in return. Neither Hadros nor I in our mirror game are having much luck with our U-Boats.

Paris holds against 2 attacks. I send 1 medium bomber, 1 armour, 1 fighter and 1 Inf Corp to North Africa. The remaining Brits will return to Jolly Old England for now.

Call it a wild hunch, but I think Yugoslavia might be the next course on the Axis menu.

At the moment the Axis do not seem interested in Egypt. I can't blame them. They probably heard that it was defended by Canada's infamous desert troops.

One of the disadvantages of the All-In France strategy is that it requires the Canadians to build infantry units rather than my preferred choice of escorts. As a consequence I am way behind in building escorts. So it is lucky for me that Hadros hasn't sunk any yet (other than a Frnech one).

I am a bit crazy when it comes to these so...

I would have hit the Mech then tried to make the 8-5 retreat to pin the armor and not allow retreat.
At least tried...the UK can always run way faster than the Germans can pursue.

But I think you needed an Infiltrator advancement somewhere as you needed a bigger chance for retreat and needed the armor in Saint-Nazaire.

You were quite nice to withdraw UK units from France for Hadros to finish it.

You are right that it might have been worth the shot; but you can't runaway if you use all your OPs to attack.

Actually it was probably more guilt than niceness. I had assumed that Hadros was going to use the All-In defence on me in our mirror game. So when I found out he hadn't I felt some guilt that I had stooped so low.

AUG 2, 1940

Again 3 MS sunk and 2 U-Boat hits scored.

Paris is captured and France will capitulate next turn. I guess I wasn't feeling too guilty because all my French troops made several low odds attacks for the sole purpose of inflicting extra casualties on the Germans.

I forgot to take a screenshot of the Map, but here are the Forces and Casualties. Again note the high number of U-Boat hits against just 1 escort sunk. Has there been some change in the Rules that I don't know about?

One odd thing is that even though I inflicted far more casualties on Hadros' Germans than he did on me in our mirror game (including shattering 4 units vs 1) his German Force strength is greater than mine.

AUG 16, 1940.

Vichy is created and Hadros wasted no time DOWing Yugoslavia. I forgot to take a screenshot of Yugoslavia, but don't worry, it was pretty boring. Here is a screenshot of the much more exciting liberation of Syria by UK troops.
