Since the Commonwealth shares all technology, they would all roll for their bond “Drive” in the collect income phase. ANZAC, FEC, Canada, UK, even South Africa if played seperately would all roll for each “nation’s” bond value. If UK springs for advanced radar, they all have advanced radar. SAme with improved shipyards or advanced infantry tactics. It is all shared.
I do not have any official ruling however that event occurred in a recent game my group played. We ruled that once Vichy government fell all Vichy territory not occupied by Axis forces reverted to France. All moneys were collect into France while Paris was liberated. Then all territories reverted to Free French rules once Paris fell again. (UK collecting the money and FF forces conduct moves with UK)
The reasoning behind this is the initial establishment of Vichy resulted in extraordinary times. The German’s had just conducted the most successful military campaign in history. The French military was in a very difficult place. Once a government was established in Vichy an actual French government called upon its military forces to stand down. While Vichy was a German puppet it was still a French government. Once Vichy collapses it would never have risen again.
Russia is an ally after they are at war with the Axis. Lets just say they cannot activate any pro allied countries until they are at war with the axis. This would be like italy being neutral until they are brought into the war.
Once Paris falls immediatly roll for Vichy. If the German player decisdes to roll for the battle of Paris last then fight all the other battles first…Just immediatly after paris falls roll for the Vichy then resume all other battles.
