the 1 fighter and bomber a turn was in reference to my builds, adding to whatever i was already sending. as for starting ya it was 3pm, lol. for me it wasnt my bed time. some of the others still wanted to hit the bars though, japan and i were totally willing to keep going. but the allies surrendered. losing the russians, and all their offensive capabilities kinda did that. as for the russians, they never attacked me, but they just pushed everything up to the front. oh after the game ended i realized that the US had also illegally bought an IC in the Philippines like turn 1. being so focused on Europe i didnt quite catch that though

RE: Axis Win
well we started at about 3 and went for 5.5 hours. it may have been G5, i was a bit tired by then. as for whether it was stalingrad or lenningrad i always mix those two up in my head, whichever one is north, that one. i did advance accross the entire line every turn, he kept sending his guys to the front in an attempt to cause as many casualties to me as soon as possible and stall me out, and simply could not roll at all. after i rolled his front for two turns he retreated everything he had back to moscow which gave him a hefty stack of 19 inf, 8 tanks, a fighter and tack, and some scattered arty. i did build a complex in romania. as for the bombing on london, i also didicated enough fighters to alwasy have 3 escorts. he sent all his interceptors every time, but no one ever hit anything except for the one turn we both killed one.
as for the competancy of the payers none of us had played this ed before, and most hadnt played AnA for some time. to address the US the UK made a very big mistake by attacking Japan on UK1 and so the US had to wait the whole three turns to get in the war. as for dogfighting, we thought it was optional, but he sent them up every turn anyways.
I must say i am very excited, just finish my first game of the global war tonight. came out with a solid axis victory too. we actually had enough ppls for every country, even china and france, to be played by a separate player. having played Germany my description of their moves will obviously be the most detailed
Germany: crushed France G1, and lined up along Russia
G2 killed Russian BB and wildly successful invasion across the entire Russian front. started continuous strategic raids on london, 1 bomber and 1 fighter a turn for 3 turn all used to stat bomb london. only ever lost 1 fighter
G3 russian front fell ever more all across the line with minimal losses, bombing runs continue, reinforcement of western europe with infantry, ferried guys with transport and bombarded with navy into stalingrad which fell.
G4 built and extra BB and cruiser in fleet, Moscow fell under concentrated attack and a few pansers gobbled up some other territories, at this point USSR only has eastern units which have just sat there all game, and eventual start to move on china, and a couple infantry who have moved into the middle east
at about this point the UK tried a daring raid to taker Berlin and my 109 IPC from me, however the fleet was sunk by mine, only losing a destroyer, and the air units with no more ground forces to back up were torn apart by my infantry, this left London basically undefended. with my massive IPC intact, the British fleet and air force crushed, the time for operation sea lion had come.
wasnt watching Italy too closely, but they faired extreamly well, britain build an IC in egypt UK1, but this was taken immediately by Italy. though they did ever so brifely lose rome to the brits, it was a very quick stay, as was very costly to the brits in the end, losing their landing force, and that navy to italian forces immediately, ensuring italian control of the med
japan chose to immediately consolidate their fleet off the chineese coast and pound them the opening turn and cut off the burma road. The UK decided to attack japan and reopen the Burma road. while it was succesful it consigned the US to three long turns of doing nothing. durring this time japan wiped china and the Anzac/Indian fleets, took the duch islands and then on J4 the philipines while utterly crushing the US navy/airforce that was sent to check them. it was only a matter of time before india fell. the main fleet had no less then 3BB, 3 full carries and 6 cruisers, after the confrontation with the US fleet at the Philipines, then over on the other side of guam at the marianas(?) sat 13 fighters and 8 tack fighters.
this is even with us not noticing that the US had inadvertently made an illegal move by building a IC at the Philipines from which i had been producing guys during its slumber…
