We were damn too lazy to do this work, but I think we need it. One thing is to have fun with the game ourselves through participation on live sessions and discussion in alliance forums, but we must think outside of this too. If we wanna get more core members for our future games, we need propaganda. I mean propadation. Besides, it's fun to write war stories. It'd be great if there is at least one session report for each alliance, but the more we have them the better. Wink
We should post it on P'dox too, maybe also at HoI Players.

We are 5 sessions behind, so I'll compile history log to summarize them.

Well the USA was enjoying a nice peaceful buildup the prewar years until war struck in europe, this caused some discomfort to the house of congress, and they switched to a more military organized production que. This production line was highly planned and foresaw a powerful entrance into world war II around july of 1941. But then the private red phone of the president rang. It was Canada. "Are you ready for war, the UK is being invaded." At this time there was only blank silence. After a day delay of staring in blank amazement, and wondering if the UK would hold, we realized they would not and immediately began prepartions for operation armada.
We sent the president in the deep of night up the mountain to speak to the oracles, but after dancing around the nude woman and taking the presidents gold the oracles swiftly denied USA's war entrance. The president went home shocked and vowing to declare war on the german hordes. We would show them the power of the US army at bermuda. After the hoi2 gods made USA wait until UK was completely defeated, USA made it's grand entrance into the war, and on that same day, began shore bombarding bermuda with over 100 allied and american ships. 5 italian divisions were met on the shores by lt. gen eisenhower and his three marines, where victory was achieved by the americans on the second day of the battle at 16:00 hour. Soon after the Japanese army joined the war, and have began their expansion policy. the president hopes that this early attack was as unprepared for as was the USA for it =].

The rising power of germany in europe has been causing great friction amongst the old fading powers of the UK & France. It seemed that both nations had begun gearing up for war. With so much turmoil going on in europe, the italian high command has sought to expand our borders to reclaim our long lost territories expecting little resistance. Albania, greece & yugoslavia were persuaded to join our great nation after short military campaigns. As war broke out in europe between the major powers, italy remained neutral hoping to avoid this major conflict.

However counter-intelligence had caught dozens of allied spies, Royal Navy warships were also spotted invading our territorial waters, convoys passing through suez were routinely being harrased & delayed as they made their way to ethopia and finally the great build up of armed forces in egypt had begun to threaten our rule in ethopia & lybia. It became clear that italy had to pick sides if it expected to survive. After the great success of the germans in france, italy joined the axis alliance in march and immediatly begun asserting its position in the mediterranean by capturing cyprus & invading north egypt & morocco. After spain refused to grant axis troops access to reach gibraltar, a quick campaign was launched quickly neutralizing spain and capturing gibraltar, severing allied convoys going to egypt and forcing them to take the dangerous route across africa filled with german U-boats.

With a great number of UK forces away from the homeland, a combined plan was layed to invade the United Kingdom. German command requested many transports & the assistance of the italian battlefleet in preparation for the attack. The italian army also launched 2 diversion attacks on bermuda and el alamein to distract the allies from the impending invasion. While the el alamein attack failed bermuda was successful, the reich also invaded norway as part of the diversion campaign. With the allies totally oblivious, german marines invaded glasgow and captured a beachhead allowing the mighty german warmachine to disembark and begin its quick campaign on the british isles. The entire operation ended in great success under the great leadership of the german leaders. The italian fleet saw several battles and assisted the kreigsmarine in sinking any allied ships attempting to escape their doom while suffering little casualties in the process.

The United states responded to the surprise attack on the british isles by entering the war as well, it seems they haven't learned anything from daring to stand up to the axis powers. Although reinforcements were sent to bermuda, the garrison was unable to hold the island after being bombarded by a huge number of allied ships. The bombardment had levelled the island, killing off many civilians in the process, however the garrison was able to repulse an entire wave of attacks before it succumbed to the numerically superior forces of the enemy. Their heroic death will serve as a motivation for the rest of our forces should they meet americans on the battlefield in the future.

As news of the major loss of the british isles hit the allied forces in egypt, their armies began to route & flee. Realizing they cannot stand against a combined offensive from the axis forces, allied troops began a withdrawl from the middle east. This allowed axis forces to advance unopposed siezing egypt, the heavily fortified suez, the levant, saudia arabia, large parts of iraq and return eithopia under italian rule.

Meanwhile once suez was captured, the Regia Marina was able to intercept & sink several south african transport ships carrying some of the fleeing enemy units. The RM also saw several engagements with the Royal Navy carrier fleet around the arabian peninsula but with no casualties on both sides, however several british subs were also sunk in the red sea.

With the allies kicked out of the middle east and italian supremacy established on the mediterranean, italian high command begins to focus its eyes on the concerning movements made by the Soviet Union with its invasion of sweden and its irregular troop deployments along the axis borders.

After unbelievably successful year of war, Third Reich consolidates her position and aids her allies wherever she can. Winter '40/'41 makes any operation within Germany's action radius imposibble to prceed. After release of England, focus of Germany is on yet another invasion, which shall come sooner than anyone may expect, striking our enemies where it hurts the most.

After the soviet invasion of sweden, it was clear that neutral nations along our borders were a threat. A plan was drawn up to invade & secure turkey & persia. However while many of the axis forces were busy in turkey, the soviets launched their own invasion of persia triggering a premature mobilization of the axis forces. The soviets managed to take the north & eastern parts of persia, however the rich oil producing provinces in the west & south were claimed for the axis alliance. It seems we'll have to refocus our attention away from the allies for a brief moment as we deal with this new threat.

In response to the recent soviet aggression against our neighbours, the axis planned a pre-emptive strike against the communists. On the 6th of July, the orders were issued out to the generals, an all out assault was ordered on the soviet front. Axis forces began advancing steadily on all fronts unopposed, however italian forces met significant resistance on the caucus mountains. After several battles, the enemy garrisons at Batum, tblisi & yerevan had all been defeated and significant casalties were inflicted by our airforce. It is estimated that 2 infantry divisions have been completely destroyed while 3 mechanized infantry divisions were significantly damaged, there are also confirmed reports of the destruction of the soviet command headquarters in that area.

Meanwhile a combination of french, belgian & brazillian troops slowly attempt to push the italians back to north africa. The goals of that campaign seem to be quite futile, nevertheless the italian army will make our enemies pay for every inch of desert the allies try to grab.

I am still wondering why we are not yet almost to suez, we outnumber axis forces by at least 5x1 and it has been so for at least the last 6 months, I've just been too busy in the pacific and anders is cautious to the point that it hurts him more than it helps him. example of anders: 11 divisions defending 3 beaches in south africa.........

UK has no divisions in South Africa, adam. Those are Canadian divs. I just never got around to doing something about them, since we almost always have a Canadian player. I didn't even put them there.
And after losing UK, can you fault me for being cautious?

there was not even a naval battle around UK when it was falling! you could have easily won the day with your BB fleet stationed nearby, and your heavy cruisers in africa guarding shores under air cover, but you were convinced morroco was so deathly important, and had 80 planes in 2 airbases on a 40 infrastructure province with like 20 org. I don't even know where your fleets were but none were at UK to stop the german fleets. I turned german fleets back from USA with just DD and a group of outdated CA. Of course I lost 20 DD, but I kept him from landing on USA heh Tongue.

If I was a certain constant USA-player, I'd say the Axis doomed themselves by taking the Home Isles Big Grin
But since I have an ounce more of humility, I'll admit I fucked up badly.

Though the beach Ed landed on had something like 1 Gar+1 Inf, and he was able to land with what appeared to be a minimum of org loss.

there was not even a naval battle around UK when it was falling! you could have easily won the day with your BB fleet stationed nearby, and your heavy cruisers in africa guarding shores under air cover

Actually we had all the precautions we needed to prevent the RN from interfering with the landing, it was a pretty well planned operation. Lots of subs were spread out onto 2 seazones away I believe. In addition the german navy was present guarding the TPs while they land. There were several NAVs, TACs & CAS on standby just waiting for the RN to appear. I was somewhat disappointed we didn't get to sink any of the main fleet tbh.

In the US invasion we were kinda in a hurry to get it done before you responded, we should've sent out more subs to scout & delay your forces but I doubt the outcome would've changed much. You had way too many ships in that area and simply exhausted the german fleet, but you never sank a german ship from the main fleet Big Grin.

goal is simple really. either A. make the axis have a huge garrison force at suez

Thanks to the UK player(s), I have lvl10 forts in suez that haven't even been used. So I could keep a pretty small garrison and with your amphibous assault penalty you wouldn't be able to get it. Assuming you do reach suez in the near future.

suez is the special case on the map. it's only a river penalty instead of amphib assault even thouh the strait is blockable by fleets. Also you asked a while back MM if high IC in a province makes it build faster and I said no. Well it doesn't build faster, but the more IC in the province, the quicker the IC builds up from 0 to 1.

love!

Yeah, I've discovered it "repairs" faster since repair rate is a fixed percentage(changable by techs). The higher the IC the bigger the repair rate in comparison with 1 IC.

Ah yes, I could always block your armies Big Grin.

that tech was just recently talked about and studied by me more, and I came to some conclusions.

repair rate stands for a modifier that is applied when repairing planes and ships. I am almost 90 percent sure tanks, mechs, and mots are included with these but it is not 100 percent confirmed. the repair rate tech has absolutely nothing at all to do with province repair and the like. it's solely a modifier used to repair divisions....So anyone who is not researching it as a high priority tech(especially germany) is losing IC to repairs as it could be done 20 percent faster.


easy way to test...start a new 1936 UK save game edit 1 ic to london under the max amount of IC so it has to charge up on load and see how many days it takes to charge up to full. then rehost the exact same save with the IC added to london and under tag = eng search for repair_mod. add 0.20 to this value to simulate like you researched repair tech save and then see that it takes the exact same amount of time to get to full IC in london. can also do the same thing with the infrastructure also.

love!
