    That looks awesome. The situation improves for the Axis as they expand their Sphere Of Control deep into the Atlantic - and soon deep into the Soviet Union.

    We look forward to more Game Reports:+1:

  • @barnee

    Nice! I’m starting to warm up to that map. The original’s still better though.

  • @barnee

    I am such a big fan of this new map! China finally doesn’t look stupid anymore (in the previous map its shape was super distorted).

    Just looking at the map makes me want to play!

    Global 1943, No. 4 Game Report: Round Late 1945:

    This is the only post in the No. 4 Game Report.

    Axis: Butch Cassidy
    Allies: The Captain

    From game start Early 1943, Germany started to re-organize the combat formations on the Eastern Front.

    Reinforcements from Germany and Western Germany were sent in all directions to strengthen the frontline units.

    Gradually a build up of Panzer units were re-inforcing the armies on the Eastern Front.

    Italy was taken over in Late 1943.

    Soviet Union:
    The Soviets were launching massive counter attacks along the entire Eastern Front, pushing back the Germans.

    In Early 1944 the Soviets launched a massive offensive that annihilated German Army Group Center.

    Strong German Panzer Unit Formations reached the frontline just in time to prevent a total collapse of the Eastern Front.

    In Late 1944 the Soviets launched another massive offensive at Kursk - destroying most of German Army Group South.

    Battle of Kursk

    After the Battle of Kursk:

    Again, Germany was able to reinforce the scattered frontline units with Panzer formations.

    As US and UK forces landed in Western Europe and Norway, the Soviets were able to halt all German advance on the Eastern Front.

    From Early 1943 and onwards, Japan was under extreme pressure from Allied troops.
    US and UK units launched massive attacks against all Japanese strongholds and occupied islands and territories.

    In both Asia and the Pacific Japan was unable to halt the Allied advance - and by Late 1944, the last Japanese units on the Pacific islands were annihilated - and in China the last Japanese units were fighting a desperate battle against an overwhelming number of Allied units.

    United States:
    In Early 1943 the US Navy launched a series of amphibious assaults in the Pacific, and strengthened their gains in North Africa.

    US land forces were increased on a massive scale - and a huge Transport Fleet was ready to carry the combat units to the Battle Zones.

    By Early 1945, all islands in the Pacific were under Allied control - and the Imperial Japanese Navy was annihilated in a massive naval battle.

    In Early 1944 and Late 1944 US landings in Europe secured the Western Front - and ultimately threatened the Third Reich - bringing an end to further German advance on all fronts.

    United Kingdom:
    From Early 1943 UK re-inforcements were transported by Strategic Rail Movement from South Africa to India, stregthening the UK frontline units in Asia in their struggle against the Imperial Japanese Army.

    In Late 1943 and Early 1944 German Paratrooper units supported by an amphibious Landing Craft Assault with Infantry and Panzer units were able to cut off the UK supply lines from South Africa to India, by capturing Iraq, Trans-Jordan and Syria.

    In Late 1944, Soviet troops captured Iraq, opening the UK supply lines to India again.

    In Late 1944 and Early 1945, UK units liberated most of China - encircling the last Japanese combat units in Kweichow - sealing the fate of further Japanese expansion in Asia.

    By Late 1945, the last remaining Axis forces were fighting for their lives - ending the War with an Allied Economic Victory.

    Very cool and sad for the Axis!

    I promise you that if the Axis wins this game, I’ll get a haircut.

    Pictures and Military Situation has been added to the Global 1943 No. 4 Game Report.

    Included are pictures from the Battle of Kursk.

  • @the-captain

    Just looking back at this game report. Why didn’t the Soviets use their Soviet Mass Tank Production on turn 1 to save a few bucks?

  • @the-captain said in Global 1940 & 1943 Expansions Game Reports:

    Global 1943, No. 3 Game Report: Round Early 1943 (round 1):

    This Global 1943 two-player game has just begun today. For the first time we play a Global 1943 game by e-mail.

    To make this Game Report more managable, we’ll post a new thread for each round.

    Here is a brief situation report:

    Axis: The Captain
    Allies: Keld Rasmussen

    I mean this game (I deleted everything from the post except the first few lines to make things more manageable.

  • Maybe Germany did something wrong on turn 1 ?

    Not normal for Germany to be this weak.

  • @general-6-stars

    Probably just The Captain being The Captain.

  • @the-captain

    With another victory under your belt, I can safely say you are the Axis and Allies 1940 and 1943 House Rules Expansions Grand Champion.

  • @victoryfirst

    It is true that the cost for Soviet Tank Mass Production should have been 47 IPC for 12 Tank units.

    As I recall, we discovered this flaw within 2-3 rounds - and if I remember correctly, USSR were allowed to place units worth 3 IPC in any Soviet controlled territory.

    I believe that this mistake could happen since we did not play Face to Face - but played by e-mail.

    When we play FTF, we always go through the economy together to minimize mistakes.

    Good observation by the way:muscle:
