If Germany did not take France on turn 1 and bypass Poland there is no way they would win. France and UK would be able to build up and eventually the Germans would have to attack the allies. Believe me…if you dont take France on the first turn Germany is doomed.
Question on attacking forces
I am sure this has been stated but cannot find it. Can an axis minor, say Finland for example, attack the same territory as Germany on the same round? Not with the intention of using any combined arms advantages, just simply Finland attacks, softens the opponent and then Germany mops up, or vice versa.
The finnish pieces move as if they are Germans.
All attacks are combined at the same time. Like FEC/ANZAC or Japanese/Siam.
