invading turkey seems useless and dumb. why let the allies put all those extra men on the board, and what real advantage do you get from occupying turkey??? it makes no sense
The Axis take Turkey so they can move land units from Europe to Africa without using Russia to open a second front to attack the Brits in Cairo and Africa so that the Italians can become a threat the Germans send reinforcements especially with a major in romania.
Thats if your playing by the book I play by IL’s neutral rules where the true neutrals are split into blocks so that me invading turkey doesn’t give the US South America
If you want to move land units from Europe to Africa USE TRANSPORTS which are less expensive than taking Turkey and giving the US South America, UK Mozambique, Algeria, Afghanistan, Spain, and Portugal, and Russia Mongolia
The allies still get Spain, Portugal, Sweden, and Mongolia
