Liberating territories



  • When Britain liberates a French territory in Africa before Paris is liberated, the originally French territory gets a British Flag on it and counts as British. What if later in the game Paris is liberated. Is this African territory automatically given back to French? Is there any other way of reclaiming originally French territories (other than giving it to the Axis and then recapturing it)? Moreover, what if, after a successful Sea Lion, Britain lost its capital, but is able to conquer an originally French territory from the Axis (again before Paris is liberated)? Who is given the country to then?

    @Shaniana:

    Yes, and that includes places like Normandy where USA/UK might be making use of the IC.

    Is there any other way of reclaiming originally French territories (other than giving it to the Axis and then recapturing it)?

    No.

    Moreover, what if, after a successful Sea Lion, Britain lost its capital, but is able to conquer an originally French territory from the Axis (again before Paris is liberated)? Who is given the country to then?

    UK will control it but not collect any income for it because UK can’t collect income without its capitol.  If London is liberated the territory will remain under UK control until france is liberated.

    Shaniana,

    ––There is a difference between Liberating and Conquering a country.

    ––Unless a “rolling the dice” combat takes place, it would simply be a re-enforcement of an allied country.

    ––When combat DOES take place and the Allied player wins,…then:

    A. If the French DO control their Capital (Paris), then control of the country would be turned over to France. (Liberating)
    B. If the French DO NOT control their Capital (Paris), the victorious nation would now control the territory. (Conquering)

    ––Basically,…in order for the USA, UK, or USSR to gain control (and income) of a French territory they have to have a COMBAT with an enemy force,….they can’t just “walk in” as that would simply be re-enforcement of a French territory.

    “Tall Paul”
