I'm having a difficult time learning the naval side of the game as well. Where and how are you losing the MM? Which convoy lanes? How many escorts do you have? Are they being killed mostly by subs or surface ships?

Nirosi is a good player. He moves wolf packs to certain lanes, waits for me to allocate escorts, then moves the subs elsewhere. As bad as it was with subs, it has gotten much worse now that the Kriegsmarine surface fleet is active. I can't really catch them. Even when I 'identify enemy fleet' I can't seem to attack them with surface ships, subs, or aircraft. I think I'm missing something pretty fundamental.

I have a lot of escorts, enough to put nearly 10 in every lane(N atlantic, S Atlantic, African coast). I run low when he threatens the Pan american zone.

It's nice to hear I'm not the only one! I wish you good luck figuring it out. Feel free to let me know anything you learn.

It occurs to me that if Nirosi does his turn in the next 24 hours or so, Pearl Harbor will occur. And of course, tomorrow is the 80th anniversary of that fateful day.

It's good to remember that while we enjoy this(fantastic) simulation of WWII, millions of men fought through the 'real thing'.

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.

Russian troops disembark at a muddy train station east of the Dneister.
