Incorporating National Advantages for 1942 Second Edition
I know that 1942 Second Edition doesn’t come with National Advantages (NA) out of the box but I’d like to experiment playing with a few. I grabbed the list of NAs from the Larry Harris Tournament Rules PDF (https://www.axisandallies.org/wp-content/uploads/AAR_LHTR_v2.0.pdf) but a few of them reference specific spaces/zones. I am wondering how to modify them for the 1942 Second Edition game board.
Trans-Siberian Railway (U.S.S.R NA) previously mentioned that certain land units can move two spaces along Russia, Novosibirsk, Yakut S.S.R., and Buryatia S.S.R territories. However, on the 1942 Second Edition game board, Evenki National Okrug is in the way along with Vologda as well. How should this be modified?
Kamikaze (Japan NA) references sea zones 58, 59, 60, 61. In the 1942 Second Edition game board, are those still valid?
Chinese Divisions (U.S. NA) references China, Sinkiang, and Kwangtung territories. Which territories should it be on the 1942 Second Edition game board?
Germany bunker/loading-up strategy
I have been playing this game for a while now and recently introduced this to a friend who played as Germany. The Axis lost that game and now my friend wants to play this again. However, because he lost because of strategic bombing with UK/Russia pushing in from both sides, he is convinced that Germany’s strategy should be to use all their money to simply build up and build up defenses without going on the offense.
Is this a valid strategy? How do I convince him that he is wrong?
