December 19, 1941
The USA enters the war. Two massive convoys immediately set sail across the Atlantic, heavily escorted. They carry Infantry corps, Armor, Fighters, Escort Fighters, and Heavy Bombers.
Additionally, the USA takes over security of the Pan American shipping zone, and dispatches a small fleet of CA and DD to counter the large wolf packs there.
Overall, the BOA continues to be horrific, another 8 MM go down. We again fail to engage the Axis surface fleet. Only 2 sub hits recorded.
In Malta, the defenders brace for another air assault. The skies, however, are clear. For one turn at least, the Axis bombers have had enough.
In Russia, Stavka decides to deploy AT Corps into the hills on the Dneister River line, NE of Romania in an effort to build a second defense line in response to the heavy German presence in Romania/Hungary. The armies from Siberia, however, remain in reserve. The armor modernization program continues to make headway.
