And your point is...? You got invaded, but somehow, sinking a lot of convoys make it worth losing your homeland? Did you notice my comment earlier?

im willing to bet that Japan is already having supply problems, as having so many garrisons overseas requires immense logistical support

First draft, will hopefully refine it during next week.

NEWS OF THE WORLD

Picture by secret Haitian spy satellite, false colors.


Mid- to late April:
Paris has fallen, Axis holds territory east of the Seine.

April 22nd:
Both Le Havre and Auxerre defenses crumble, the Allies have set their first foot over the Seine. Axis defenders rally around Amiens, Compiegne, Troyes. For now, the Allied advance has come to a hold.

Later in April and early May:
Axis armor which has been loaded onto trains rallies to France, Soviet front on all parts of central russia begins to crumble. Massive gains by lone Motorized divisions in the following weaks ensue.
In the Caucasus into Persia the Axis advance is halted. China is temporarily halted in eastern PErsia. The temporal linkup is battered.

May 2:
Novorzhev defenses are tested by Soviet advancing infantry, only to be repulsed.

May 5 - 7:
Around Moscow, Axis spearheads are violently beaten back. Defenders of Vladimir, Noginsk and Rybinsk have to issue orderly retreats. The Russian is on general advance, tossing massive numbers against weakened axis spearheads. Reports indicate 3 to 1 odds for Soviets.

Early to mid May:
General advance of Soviet Red Army. Finland "liberated". leningrad defenders begin orderly retreat by TP.
The baltic nations north of the Daugava river are abandoned, Red Army advances.

May 18:
Leningrad is abandoned and declared a "free city". After taking down most of the civilians, of course.

May 24:
Massive attack on Amiens by Allies. the attacked is easily repulsed by German Armor, and Wehrmacht commences a great attack on Le Havre in an effort to push them over the Seine again.
Immense attack on Paris, with 2.5 million soldiers participating, results in a win for the allies.

Early to mid June:
While the Westfront remains quite for now, Ostfront sees massive land gains by Red Army in the far east of the Ostfront, Kursk is taken on June June 16, and the Russians are nearing Gomel further north and Kiev in the south. The Red army has managed to continually route Romanian, hungarian and bulgarian defenders in the southeast. Stalingrad falls unopposed. Axis defenders seek refuge behind rivers, trying to halt or at least divert the flood of men.

June 26:
Massive attack on Le Havre commences, routing the battered defendents westwards over the Seine. great pushes are made towards Argentan and Caen, but are thwarted days after the offensive started. The power is there, the air superiority isnt. The stalemate continues for the 3rd month, now.

Late June:
Recently deployed hard units wreak havoc on the south eastern part of the front. The soviets, who gained up to 500km of land in 3 weeks, are losing it at the same pace again. a good portion of Soviet troops (intel suggests up to 20 divisions) are trapped somewhere east of Kiev. Kharkov is at the same time relieved.
Soviet offensive is dealt a crucial blow, Axis once more advances eastwards.

July 3: After attacks on Le Havre, Axis probes once more Paris's defenses. a 2 to 1 advantage doesnt bear fruits, and the attack is called off. Western France remains a meatgrinder.

July 3-9: An offensive to capture the Baltic is successful at first, defendants of Degaupolis and surrounding provinces including Riga fall temporarily, but SU numerical superiority quickly destroys Hitlers hope for a fast push for moscow.

Mid to late July:
The fields of Tula, Orel and Kaluga are started being called "killing fields" by both sides. Massive battles sees German army ripping though infantry defenses, only to be thrown back by Motorized AT Infantry. The front remains very fluid, with either side gaining up to 100s of kms, only to lose them next days again.

You guys just wont quit. Good on yah!

For a straighforward copy over zip version go here: Goerings Delay -- NZQS -- 1.3b.rar

The Mod can also be set up with the Jones Generic Mod Enabler and has worked fine in that mode in my tests. This version has everything in it, 1.3beta, JSGME and the East is Red patch, and can be installed straight to your Armageddon 1.2 (ZBLV) folder without disrupting vanilla at all. It has the 1.3beta exe update and JGSME Mod system right in it. Just unzip to your main doomsday folder, copy the contents of the folder, then past into the main folder, then enable the mod using the JSGME system. Once you execute the JSGME it is pretty self-explanatory: EIR NZQS --ARMA 1.3beta complete 1.3b

Small patch from XTPS or NZQS 1.2 to NZQS 1.3b: Goering EIR -- Patch 1.3b

It would be a dangerous folly for the British people to underrate the enduring position in world history which Mussolini will hold; or the amazing qualities of courage, comprehension, self-control and perseverance which he exemplifies.

How about a small reward, in addition to ontime, for decent AARs? Something equal to or greater than the ontime of 3000 supplies.

There is no direct connection between story and front. Story can be made out even when there is no font. Something like "American wifes help defeat nazi tyranny by assembling aircrafts in factories", etc. Just elaborated a little more Cool

So why don't you write an AAR from the trenches ? Or make something happen? You've been sitting in France, recreating WW I for 2 sessions now.
Besides, in this session we had a near invasion of Japan that failed miserably, with the loss of what I approximate to be nearly 20.000 Allied troops, at the loss of only 3000 of our own brave troops. And major naval engagements resulting in the loss of several Japanese ships. Surely that's something to write an AAR about.
Not to mention the repelled invasion of the Americas...

And I was thinking of making the reward 1 IC added in province of choice. Or a much larger Supply reward.

Alright here goes. I'll be reporting on the smaller operations led by minors of the allies and let the big stuff for vb's aar Smile.

Allied minor command

In a feat of great cooperation between allied & soviet forces, axis armies have been driven off from the caucus region with significant casualties inflicted by repeated allied & soviet bombing runs on the fleeing enemy. It is expected that the rest of the axis troops on the southern front will crumble under this combined pressure.

In response to the turkish entry to the allies and its advance into the caucus, axis planes launched an all out attack on the turkish airspace causing the fleet blockading the straits to panic and flee. Subsequently a major assault was launched against bursa with 6 mechanized divisinos and an infantry division, however in a heroic battle against incredible odds a single infantry division was able to defend the homeland against invadors of great numbers and quality. Another attempt by the axis forces was made on izmit resulting in a similar victory for allied forces. The RAF finally arrived and quickly smashed the axis airforce in another great victory. These numerious heroic victories will serve as a great example for the rest of our forces as they march on our enemies to liberate the lands they occupied.

Meanwhile several skirmishes in northern persia resulted in heavy losses for the chineese attackers trying to break through. Frustrated and demoralized, chineese forces invade tibet in an attempt to score a quick victory for their troops, however allied advisers were able to sneak through the enemy territories and rugged terrain to reach the capital lhasa. Under allied guidance and schooling of the ways of their enemy, tibetans have been able to form an orderly defence of their capital with their ancient WW1 weapons, defeating repeated chineese offensives and embarresing their armies. Tibetans have also begun learning the use of more recent weaponry as they prepare to give the chineese a fight they'll never forget.

Japanese imperial staff, realising that planning only for defense means planning for defeat, decided to embark on a bold quest. Target? The suez canal. The marines and other divisions were gathered. Fleets were reorganized. On the first day... Yamamoto sailed his BB SAG directly into the arms of a US cv fleet. Under cover of darkness, he managed to close. The Saratoga and the Ranger were sent to a watery grave. Then the transports sortied. The skulked down the chinese coasts. Avoiding enemy ships and air. They made it all the way to Bombay without discovery. Then in a cruel twist of fate, on the first hour out of bomay, .....
Surprise is lost. A minor british fleet trips over the covering fleet guarding the tp's. The ships are destroyed, but with surprise gone do they dare continue? A hasty axis conference is called. After many hours of heated debate the decision is reached to continue. Although strategic surprise has been lost Yamamoto continues on. The first attack is the strategic port of mascate. The french put up a valiant defense, but the imperial marines take the day. Then the ships set sail for massua. As soon as they enter the red sea, they encounter a small british fleet and destroy it. Then they encounter the spanish main fleet, and defeat it. Yamamoto knows this cannot last, he considers turning back, but following the orders of he emporer he continues. Then.... disaster! The IJN encounters the bulk of the french navy. The troops are already landing, so retreat cannot be authorized. The ijn holds on against the french until the british arrive. With the loss of the last carrier, yamamoto finally orders retreat.
Offensive operations for the ijn are over. The allied fleets continue to press thier advantage, many ships are lost. The sun has set on the IJN. However the sun always rises in the morning...
Next, the desperate defense of the home islands.

After the IJN had set sail, the allies finally gathered the courage to attack the home islands. They picked shikoku as thier first attempt. Over 21 divisions attacked in the first waves. The 6 japanese divisions fought with bravery and distinction. They repulsed the first wave after days of relentless attacks, endless shorebombardments, and hundreds of sorties from allied aircraft. Than even before the defenders could catch thier breath, and clear the countless corpses from the beaches, the second wave attacked. Again relentless attacks, wave after wave of allied troops. The unending rain of allied shells. The sky dark with allied fighters and bombers. Yet the imperial army perservered. They stood strong and unflinching on the beaches. And again they threw the allied attackers into the sea. The allied commander with drew indicating his respect for the prowess of the japanese soldiers. In the service of thier emporer, they stood invincible.

Wochenschau presents:

COLOSSAL VICTORIES ALL OVER THE OSTFRONT
In an adress to the Reich, Goebbels exclaims the shattering of 80 Red army divisions soon to come. In a bold move to make the biggest encirclement the world has ever seen, the recent capturers of Moscow, including the brave Italian comrades under Graziani the Magnifiscent, move northwards tu cut the routes of retreat of the Red Army. STAVKA realizing the deadly trap, begin to throw everything back, while the Wehrmacht advances towards Cherepovets with the ultimate goal of capturing Molotovsk.

The superior troops of the Reich, while exhausted, secure Cherepovets quickly at the beginning of November. The Italian and hungarian spearheads make headway into Molotovsk, while the German armored Reserve has the task to link up and ultimately lead the final assault on the trapped Russian divisions.

Italian paratroopers dropping on Molotovsk, after the hastily assembled defense force quickly bends under sheer combined pressure of the 3 great nations of Germany, Italy and Hungary, securing the thin stretch of land that now encloses the biggest pocket of the war to date. Engineers immideately being to dismantle railroads and railway stations, cutting the thin vital veins of the finland pocket. Emergency divisions scramble around Archangelsk, routing the recently landed paratroopers south. In an effort to keep up the ring of steel, italian and german defenders rush northwards, at their head famed Graziani and the Wehrmacht tank and mech columns.

After ferocious battles lasting for an estimated 2-3 weeks, Molotovsk and Cherepovets are in firm hands of the combined Axis forces. All attempts to relieve Molotovsk, while successful for for some days, are thwarted. All hope is lost in Southeastern Finland, and reports of Russian soldiers leaving their entrenchments and surredning for food in the harsh russian winter trickle through. In a twist of irony, those who willingly surrender will face humane conditions as a prisoner of war and aid the German war effort in munitions factories across the Greater German Reich.

After the seal has been firmly closed on the Southern Finland pocket, Wehrmacht troops begin to hunt down Russian troops still entrenched, but low on morale and supplies. Those about to surrender will be offered favourable conditions in the german war industry and PoW camps, should they comply.



EDIT: Isnt it amazing how many AARs spring up when we talk about giving IC or supplies for AARs? Personally i think this is great. the chance to receive free IC or supplies seems very appealing to everybody. If this is the way to get more into the game, with being emotionally attached to your nation, i think this is a great game for the game itself. Well done everybody.

I think 1 IC in province of choice, owned or other player's, is a justifiable reward for an AAR of sufficient length and/or detail. Let me know where you want it, or my guess will be in interior China Big Grin

So far it's award for Schürmann, at least, and M&M and SoL. I'm not exactly sure of what the criteria should be.

We should consider offering these rewards when we start sloww2. It does seem to help motivate the increased participation.

Dear Diary

The last weeks had been very strenous for Erich Schürmann, Funker (radio operator) of 4th Panzergrenadier Division. He hadnt slept orderly for weeks on end now, always on the move, always in caution. His leading officer was of a cautious type. Too many men had been lost due to entrenched Russians with AT as of late. The dense woods south east of Leningrad provided the best cover for the Red Army, who already had the advantage of fighting at home. Erich was lucky that he did not have to fight in the Pripet marshed to the south. Horrible stories had been circling his unit, with Mechanised personnel carriers getting stuck in the ground, only to be shelled with mortars by nearby russian anti tank forces, with no place to escape. The losses had been high, very high. But the Wehrmacht marched inexorably eastwards, slowly, but steady.

All too often Erich had to think about Magdalene, at home. He hadnt seen her for months now. He had front-vacation for 4 weeks in last spring. Early January he had been called off the Ostfront, ferried on overstacked trains, towards Western France. The so-called allies had been allying Republican Spain, and had landed what seemed like the entire Commonwealth allied forces. Erich, who had been close to enjoy the month long successes on the Ostfront, was dumbstruck. Victory had been so close! The Führer had promised victory over the Bolsheviks by Summer, at the latest. And there he was, rushing with his division towards Paris, to stop the allied advance. Being a radio operator, he had heard what it must have been like in the early hours of the landing. The brave italians had put up a giant effort to hold out despite the seemingly inifinite odds they were facing. It must have been hell on earth, so Erich thought. He had heard about the might of Allied aircraft, but what he had seen on the Front when he finally arrived 2 weeks later, was far worse than he had ever hoped for. It had been 2 months, until they finally stopped the Allies at the Seine river. For a month or so the situation had been grim. Royal airforce tormenting the defenders below. Erich considered himself to be lucky, as he was wounded in early February. Immideately he was sent home, to recover, to get his mind free of molested thoughts. It had been bittersweet 4 weeks at home in Bielefeld, still spared by Allied bombers. As Magdalene went working in a nearby munitions factory, he could care for his one year old daughter Karin. He hadnt seen her once since here birth. She had been born in the early hours of what they called the second World War, Erich on the forefront of it near the Belgian border. To his dismay, his health had been improving steadily, and in March he was recalled to the Ostfront. No Royal Airforce tormenting his sleep, at last, but gone from the save home he had grown to love over the last 4 weeks. It would be hard for Karin to udnerstand why her dad had to go to foreign lands, to fight wars she couldnt understand. War, luckily, had not touched the one year old, yet.

And there he was, part of a gigantic battle plan to finish off the Bolsheviks once and for all. He smiled grimly. His unit did good in the last weeks. After the easy capture of Leningrad, they had been called eastwards, where an already developing salient far eastwards of Moscow had been developing, sealing off the eastern parts off Leningrad and completely cutting off Finland. The attack in the east was led by the great Graziani. Graziani was a hero, not only in Italy, but in Germany as well, always on the forefront of success. Massive tank columns, so Erich heard, had been called off the static front in Orel, to aid the Italians who led the attack to seal of Finland. Finland had been cut off for supplies as early as November, as battlehardened paratroopers of Italy had dropped on Molotovsk. The were driven out of the city as early as 6 hours after their surprise landing, but not before they could destroy the major railroad hub leading through the city. The retreated in orderly fashion through the woods of Cherepovets into the safe hands of advancing Graziani.

The Russian meanwhile had called off all available resveres to hinder the Wehrmacht cutting off Finland and all the armies trapped in the gigantic pocket. In clashes, so big as in the days of his father, in World War 1, the city and surroundings of Molotovsk had changed hands so quickly Erich could not keep track of. It must have been in the early days of December though, as Molotovsk had been firmly in control of Wehrmacht troops. Erich noticed this as they faced increasingly worn out Russian defenders, who surrendered town after town while only putting up minimal resitance, if at all. They had broken their neck, finally. the only threat was the guerilla tactics the russians employed from late November on, as supplies dwindled. Supported by the local residents, Russians officers in civil clothing had been raiding convoys and lone depots in order to fuel their guerilla tactics. Erich, who had fought in Leningrad, Moscow, Smolensk and Minsk already knew the kind of attacks very well. But still his superiors lacked the experience or rather knowledge how to counter the situation. Whenever a new raid has been done by Russian partisans, there had been harsh crackdowns on nearby villages. The thought of slaying civilians, being innocent or not, tormented the rare times of sleep he received. His superiors had been ordering the annihilation of village after village, setting them ablaze more often than not. He secretly hoped for his superiors to be dealt with accordingly by judges after all this was over, if he lived to see this day. Cludging his Gewehr 41, the radio on his back, they drove on in the night.

In Soviet Russia, Schuermann defeats YOU!

"Hvor fattige var de ikke, disse fiskere som levde av havets nåde! De slet sig gjennom livet uten å se sig om til høire eller til venstre. Deres gleder var få, deres bekymringer mange. Men de hadde allikevel et gemyttlig smil til den fremmede, en munter vise og en lun historie. For sånn er de, disse Sørlandets barn."
