For those who know and don’t know, I created a Axis-victory Cold War scenario I called the Axis American Cold War. After playing it multiple times, I decided that I wanted to revise some of the rules, and by revise I mean create a whole new scenario.
This is the Axis American Cold War, Second Edition. It will have some more politics involved, nuclear weaponry, new technology, and even additional events like proxy wars, which are played out during different stages in the proper game.
Below here is a small sample of what I am working on. I will be posting the completed scenario under the title “Axis American Cold War 2 Final Copy” link here:
Of course, feedback is most welcome! Please tell me what you would like to see!
Axis American Cold War Version 2
Greater German Reich
United States of America
New Roman Empire
Empire of Japan
Soviet Siberian Republic
League of International Fascism (LIF)- German Greater Reich, New Roman Empire, Vichy France, Chinesisch-Deutsche Allianz
Allied Powers- United States of America, Britain, ANZAC
Northeast Asia Resistance Movement (NARM)- Japan, Socialist Siberian Republic
Greater German Reich- The Greater German Reich is the leading industrial nation, surpassing even the United States. With the strongest and most modern military in the world, the Reich takes head in international relations with the forming of the League of International Fascism (LIF) the Anglo-Nazi-American Atlantic Charter (ANAAC), and the newest Chinesisch-Deutsche Allianz. However, even the Reich has an Achilles heal. The LIF is a firefight, with both the Italians and French posturing for more power. Conflict with former ally Japan and the surviving Russians has arisen, with more military forces being sent to China. Britain has also survived the onslaught of the Second Blitz, and while in no shape to act with force, the island nation remains a thorn in the Nazis side.
The Greater German Reich starts the game at war with the Socialist Siberian Republic. It may declare war against the United States, Britain, ANAZC, and Japan at anytime, but the New Roman Empire and Vichy France may choose to stay out of the conflict.
Chinesisch-Deutsche Allianz- When the German armies swept through the Soviet Union, small contingents of the Red Army crossed the border into China. Attempting to meet up with the CPC forces, they were halted by Chiang Kai-Shek. Chiang, not wanting to start a front within his own borders, reluctantly requested aid from the Germans to eliminate the Russians. This ultimately led the US to cease their support. The ensuing conflict led to a Russian surrender. However, Hitler had an ulterior motive and with the withdrawal of US influence, slowly phased out the Kuomintang command structure with a newly formed Chinese Nazi Party. The final result was the arrest of Chiang Kai-Shek, the instalment of a Nazi puppet regime, and the partitioning of China between Germany and Japan.
The Chinesisch-Deutsche Allianz starts the game at war with the Socialist Siberian Republic and will automatically go to war with any country the Reich declares war on.
United States of America- As the Second World War ended, the conflict between the United States and Japan continued in what was called the Great Pacific War. That too slowly faded as Japan and the pacific allies negotiated terms. With the signing of the Anglo-Nazi-American Atlantic Charter, the United States, Britain and the LIF have agreed to not go to war with one another However, like so many of Hitler’s agreements, this is but a mere piece of paper. The US knows this and further expands its military forces. The United States is also concerned with the slow rise of fascism in South America, and has sent small military forces to the allied nation of Brazil.
The United States start at war with no one and may not declare war against LIF members unless they declare war first. The United States automatically enters a state of war if Britain and/or ANZAC are at war. The United States may choose to enter a state of war if Japan is at war with the Greater German Reich.
New Roman Empire- Mussolini has achieved his dream of a New Roman Empire, but at a cost. After the fall of the Allied forces in South Africa, he ordered rapid campaigns to be made into the oil rich Middle East. These campaigns were successful, but stripped the Italian armed forces thin. The British and Indians have also managed to secure a line in the eastern half of Iran, preventing a full annexation of the country. Hitler, to spite his ally, refused to provide aid, with the ultimate intention of forcing the Italians out and seizing the oil resources for the Reich.
The New Roman Empire starts at war with no one, but may declare war on United States, Britain, ANAZC, and Japan at anytime. Other LIF members may choose to stay out of the conflict.
Empire of Japan- Japan has succeeded in the war against China. They have managed to sign a beneficial treaty with the United States and other pacific powers which allows them control over the oil rich Dutch East Indies, while at the cost of other territorial gains as well as a small fleet reduction. Despite this, Japan is still a force to be reckoned with. In its best interests, it has formed an alliance with the Soviet Siberian Republic know as the Northeast Asia Resistance Measure (NARM). In fact, all of Japan’s decisions have been in its best interests as Nazism has grip in Asia and the Axis powers are no more. Japan was rejected entry into the LIF after the dissolution of the Axis Pact. Conflict between them seems imminent.
Japan starts at war with no one, but may declare war on the Greater German Reich at any time. They may not declare war on other LIF members unless they declare war first.
Great Britain- Britain is a shell of its former empire and draws heavily on foreign aid. The Second Blitz has severely damaged British industries. In addition, the Reich influenced Atlantic charter, reinforced with German U-boats, cuts off any military-related aid outside powers can send to the island nation. Its greatest defence has become its greatest weakness, with its fleet in shambles the only defence Britain has against the might of the Reich is its airforce and how the Reich’s alliances are fragile while Britains are strong. Until then, Britain is in no position to do anything but display a show a defiance.
Britain starts at war with no one and may not declare war on LIF members unless they declare war first or the United States is in a state of war.
ANZAC- Australia and New Zealand are the safest in the Pacific region, with distance as their ally. However, that does not make them ignorant to the threat posed by the spread of Nazism in the region.
ANZAC starts at war with no one, but enters state of war if the United States and/or Britain are in a state of war.
Vichy France- After the fall and occupation of France in 1940, the French, under Petain, were finally in control of the government and country. However, this was a very heavily influenced government, with Hitler and his staff overseeing much of the legislation. Eventually, after much complaints, the Vichy government went as far as to remove the Reich officials from office, causing a short termed occupation of the country which ended with Petain’s resignment. The Germans installed their own leader in place, but after much rioting and conflict between Nazis and the newly formed political party Fete pour le Fascisme Francais, Hitler eventually gave and let the French assume full control of the Vichy government. However, he enforced a decreased French military and ordered that a German garrison stay full time in Paris.
Vichy France starts at war with no one, but may declare war at any time. Other FIL members may choose to stay out of the conflict.
Soviet Siberian Republic- The Soviet Union has fallen; in its place rises a decentralized, overpopulated republic. With the execution of Stalin and the members of the Soviet party, what remains of the country is held together by a dying ideology. With the Reich slowly pressing in and food and other essential supplies running low, the self-proclaimed Soviet Siberian Republic faces certain annihilation…
… Or maybe not. Feeling threatened by the rise of fascism, the island of Japan has become a lifeline for a dying country. A newly formed alliance led the republic to receive food, fuel, clothing, and weapons. Military advisors draw up the battle plans. The defensive lines are dug. When the Reich moves in, the Russians will be ready.
The Soviet Siberian Republic starts at war with the Greater German Reich and may declare war on other LIF members at any time.
