• G1.  Take all 3 French Territories in Europe.    Place Major IC in Romania.  Turn 2 should give you ~60 IPCs to build for a southern thrust….

    Of course you have to work on the UK navy and take the pro axis neutrals…


  • Is this for a G3 attack or just a general Barbarossa strategy?

    How to take 3 french terretories in G1?


  • S France only has 2 units defending at a 2.   You can get 2 armor there.

    Kicking it around as a jumping off point for an axis strat that isn’t being attempted yet.    I like the ideas of infantry and transports that can pour out of that fact on G2, cutting off a turn of commute to stalingrad.  Perhaps a G3.


  • Would you spare air force for attacks in France or do they all go help to kill UK Navy?

    How to take 3 french terretories in G1?

    I’ve given that question some thought for a G1 Europe game attack on Russia. Here are the French moves along with the UK navy moves. They should apply in Global as well.

    Normandy: 1 inf, 1 arm, 1 tac bomber= 3 pieces vs 1: Likely 1 round of combat
    S. France: 1 Mech, 2 arm, 1 tac bomber= 4 pieces vs 2: Somewhat-Likely 1 round of combat
    France: 5 inf, 2 art, 2 mech, 2 arm, 4 fighters, 1 tac= 16 pieces vs 12
      (also, you are likely to hit 6 times round 1, 5 round 2, and take on round 3 vs France hitting 5, then 3 then 1. So you take with 0-1 mech and 2 arm, plus air)

    sz 109: 2 subs vs 1 dd (tran)
    sz 110: 3 subs, 1 bomber vs 1 DD, 1 BB

    sz 112: (Italy) 2 fighters vs French CA if UK pulls out of 112.

    Leaves the UK with 1 BB, 2 CAs and deal with them later using air/subs

    Note: UK navy left partially in tact as part of a G1 assault on Russia per a prototype Europe version strategy I am drafting.
    (Build is 1 CA,TT,Sub save 1 dollar) (Grab Finland+Bulgaria)
    (Collect 44 -4 convoy+capture 17+ 10 for 2 N/Os + 1 saved for a G2 (Europe) income of 72 or 70 IPCs depending on USSR sub location) (Global will be 67 or 65 IPCs)
    (Assumes German capture of Baltic States(3 inf, 1 art, 1 arm-retreat land units let art/inf from transport take round 2)+E. Poland(2 arm,5 inf))(Use 1 inf Romania and S. German stack to hit Yugoslavia 1 round and retreat to Romania to protect with 6-8 units from Bessarabia’s 2 inf and Russian air force)
    (Italy hits Yugoslavia since Germany has S. France then (hopefully)retreats to Albania to help Seize Greece on I2.)

    If Germany take Southern France too, then Italy will never get the 5 IPC NO.

    Yes they will. The AXIS have to control Vichy, Greece, and Egypt. Hell, Japan can take Greece and fulfil the reqs
