RE: WWII Myths
I like the polish cavalry one because its always brought up in documentaries. While Poland still used cavalry it was not in an offensive role and served more for recon since the polish army did not posses any scout cars like other nations. there was one time when a Calvary unit attacked a small German infantry unit but were counter attacked by a group of panzer ii’s but it was not a cavalry charge against entrenched or armored units.
RE: What country had the best trained infantry in WWII?
I would give it to the Germans for most of the war up until the final year or two but even then they always seemed to give the Allies a few surprises. The only other Nation that could compete would be the British commonwealth (all countries fighting as members of the commonwealth since there were so many and on so many fronts) because they had at least a very professional army in the pre war years where as countries like USA, had a very small standing army. However we are talking about man to man and this would have to go to the Germans because they were physically fit like athletes, very dedicated to their commanders and leaders, and they had very good understanding on how to use their equipment. However as the war progressed the crack troops Germany started the war with became less and less do to losses on all fronts. To sum it all up Germany had the best soldiers through most of the war right up untill the end where as the allies would spend the war trying to catch up and would often get caught by the German tactics examples being the battle of the buldge, the battle of Normandy, the Battles of Sicily and Italy.
RE: First time playing Germany
The way I view Germany and Italy is like this. Germany is your big powerhouse, you want Germany to making as much income as possible from territory and bonuses because they will need to make big investments in air and armor as well as troops when you invade Russia, also I find that if you can get a German naval and ground force operating alongside Italy you can guarantee victory in Africa and the middle east since it requires big investments from USA and Britain to knock out. Italy has 3 priorities, getting control of the med, Getting control of Egypt (also want Germans in there so they can get a bonus) and either take the middle east or take south Africa. Some players like to use Italy in Russia as well but I find this just weakens Italy’s efforts in Africa.
RE: Questions on Axis Strategy
Im not the best Axis player but this is usally how I play and I have won a few games with this strategy.
Barbarossa I usually wait till round 3 Unless the Italians have a really good first 2 rounds in the Med in which case ill put more ground units into the turn 2 buy and send them east.
Moving starting units, first make sure you take Yugoslavia, Bulgaria and Greece as Germany. Germany will be your big spender for the Axis so they need more territory this allows them to build the Atlantic wall, support in the Med (if needed) and focus the majority of its efforts on Russia. as for movement after taking France I send everything from mech to tank east, troops are for occupation, sometimes I prep a mech force to go to Africa from southern France but other then that just use infantry and AAA to occupy western Europe untill the Allies are in a really good position to invade.
As for taking Moscow the best rout I have found is going North taking novograd for the factory then going hard for Moscow, how ever do not abandon a force in the Ukraine otherwise you can run into big problems, if you can get the factory in the Ukraine you will be in a good position.
J1 attack is very hard to do because you dont have the troop ships to hit the big targets or “chedder” as i call it ( the duth east indies, borneo, Java, Sumatra) however an early attack will usally suck up british troops heading to the middle east and could give Italy a naval advantage in the med.
Italy needs to get control of the med as soon as possible, this can be done if you play your fleet close to your air assets and constantly land fresh troops in Africa to capture Egypt, replacing ships in early game is hard for Italy since they dont make much so you have to be careful not to leave your ships open to large attack from the British air and Navy, I find subs and troop ships are good buys to help this.
Bulgaria should go to Germany
If you decide to go after Stalingrad you should build up the finish force to eventually take Leningrad I have never been able to take Stalingrad without holding Leningrad because the Russians can build a big force really fast if you dont do spoiling attacks and take away territory
Japans best move is to take Malaya then build up a naval force as well as a ground force in Shan state before the Brits are able to really get dug in, example I wasnt able to get a big enough Japanese force to take India so within 3 turns the brits were able to outnumber me 3 to 1
Sea lion is a good way to get the British to put money and effort into defending England, if you but 4 troop ships on round 1 and the Brits put more of their force into Africa and don’t build a ground force then i say go for it. if the brits dig in on England then don’t bother, build a u boat fleet to harass the brits.
Buy your units but position them in such a way as Russia dosnt know what your target is, Ill take poland, besserabia, and baltics in round 1 then go for Ukraine to draw forces south then go hard center for Moscow.
G1 is based on taking all French territory and hurting the british fleet so everything you have west plus your air should be put into the attack, priority on France and Normandy to prevent a counter attack.
RE: Air raids
Im thinking more for the Allies, the only good bombing for Germany would be to hit the factory in the Ukraine or Novograd since it would make it easyier to capture those positions. The Allies however can do more damage by hitting the french factories as well as the factory in Western Germany because it forces the Germans to spend IPC on repairs instead of equipment and troops which can really hurt their war effort.
