For me depends upon what is sitting in Italy...because they will surrender quickly if you can take 6 points. Though all mainland now.

IF Italy is heavily fortified by Germans it will be unlikely unless you have a LOT of landing craft.

Hitting Portugal / Spain is not to hard...just invade the northern Spain coats with a division to cut the rail.

Take Portugal and ferry in a few units from Gibraltar, replace with an armor for speed....then next turn US lands with everything as well as the UK in Portugal and the Germans can not get to the Spanish capital due to rail cuts.

If you can cut the rail to Madrid in multiple places you may be able to get your corps really close before Axis reinforcements arrive.

Fantastic play as the UK, really impressive.


Thank you. I am pleased with my war on the ground, but the lack of MS is starting to have an effect.

If you can muster the landing capacity to do the Netherlands and Denmark at once...



I should have added that landing craft are an issue. From the start of the game I have built and used 9 UK landing craft (6 in FNA and 3 in Norway). The balance of the UK's shipyards have been used exclusively to build escorts and MS. So the UK has no landing ships at all and none in production. The US has 8 Landing ships with a few more in production. So my invasion will be limited to 3 corps at the most and 1 para. I am tempted to make no invasions at all; or if I do invade in late summer. Will perhaps depend upon the situation in Russia.

It's a shame that the USA cannot directly transfer escorts and merchants to the UK. Lend lease, right? But this can only be done indirectly by shipping PPs. You can plan around that, but it does gum up the works.

You kind of borrowed against the future by making those early landings and may have to wait a while now. But it was definitely worth it, Norway taken and NA cleared early into 42 and in the midst of a still raging BoA is nice work.

You are probably right. But for some reason invading Portugal and Spain always feels a bit Cheesy to me. I did it once and it left a bad taste in my mouth. Still, if it is the only way to win I will do it because I don't like losing.

Wouldn't Norway use up 6? You landed a mech.

I used Mech in both French North Africa and Norway. As far as I am aware only armour use double LS. If Mechanized are suppose to use double LS as well than this is a bug. Norway I probably could have captured with just an infantry corps, but for Algiers it would have been risky to use 2 infantry.

STILL FEBRUARY 27, 1942.

FORCES AND CASUALTIES.

Russia is I think stronger than usual for this time. But then so is Germany, remarkable when you think they lost 4 units in France. The UK hovers around 110 MS. I receive several more over the next few months.

TECH ADVANCEMENTS.

Circled in red are those that are ahead of the curve. Circled in blue are those that are advancing slower than average.

PRODUCTION

Perhaps late in the day to be building those British shipyards; but better late than never.

MARCH 13, 1942

A bad turn in the BOA as 7 MS (all British) and 2 escorts are sunk as against only 4 U-Boat hits.

Cold weather in the North Moderate zone means I have to eat my words about Hadros making a mistake in having his armour in South Russia. But his offensive doesn't shatter any units or make a breakthrough. I am even able to counterattack one of his armour and throw it back across the river.

No action anywhere except in the BOA. Only 3 MS sunk and the Allies sink their first U-Boat. And to think it only took 30 months.

APRIL 10, 1942

7 MS and an escort sunk and 4 U-Boat hits.

Whereas in our mirror game there was snow in both Russian weather zones on this turn, in this game there is clear/cold in both zones. So Hadros makes a number of attacks, shatters 2 armies and 1 Mechanized and his Southern Panzers drive North.

But IMHO he was overly aggressive in the North and leaves an armour without a retreat route.

After several air strikes, it is attacked and shatters on the first try. If you are wondering why it couldn't retreat to the blue circled hex, it is because it is blocked by the lake hexside.

I almost got the 2nd armour as well, but it refused to Shatter.

After My Moves (except that after this screenshot I placed the circled units into garrison mode).

The weak spot is obviously NNW of his massed armour. If next turn is clear/cold (34% chance) the Axis could probably breakthrough here again.

7 MS sunk and 6 U-Boat hits.

Blizzard in the Artic (same as in our mirror game) stops the Axis drive in Russia.

Central Russia after my moves.

MAY 8, 1942

With the fair weather the Axis continue their drive on Moscow from the South. This time an army and a mechanized unit (a good one too) are destroyed. But the Germans are already looking a bit tired.

Russia after my moves. If the Axis continue to advance North it may be a bloodbath for both of us. The paratrooper in the upper left worries me more than any panzer unit.

6 MS sunk and 4 U-Boat hits.

After much deliberation the Allies (well really the US) invade Sicily. In the end the decision was between Sicily and the Netherlands. If I had more Landing Ships it probably would have been the Netherlands. Sicily is an easier target and my navy can better support battles here. But fighting up the boot will be difficult if not impossible.

As you can see there are a lot of German units in Italy, especially in the North; which is why an invasion of Vichy France was a no-go.

When deploying my Russian production I discovered that I had two armies ready to be deployed at reduced strength. Since I didn't build these units I only deployed one of them in an out of the way area to see what it looked like. I assume this is a bug. Has anyone else ever seen this? I am speculating that perhaps Hadros is using the latest beta where shattered units return to the build queue after a couple turns. If so perhaps these are the two armies that shattered on the April 10 turn. Another oddity is that the unit deploys fully entrenched.
