It’s worth noting that Churchill spent most of the 1940-1943 period screaming his head off for a Norwegian offensive. None of his joint chiefs really took it seriously and did their best to placate him. Italy distracted him, but then he focused all his attention on the Balkans, another eye-roller that Roosevelt/Truman pulled him away from.

RE: Why was Norway never liberated?
RE: USA all air buys?
That’s true, but my frustration with typical US kill KGF action is it costs 8IPCs to transport every 8IPCs worth of materiel (1 inf + 1 tank), more with escorts (though I tend to just send the east coast destroyer in round 1, panama destroyer in round 2, and pacific battleship in round 3 if you follow me). It seems so inefficient, whereas bombers come with the benefit of being their own transit.
I don’t suppose anyone would like a Triple A game to allow me to test this.
USA all air buys?
What is the validity of the US doing nothing but air buys? It would depends of course on the individual turns and how well Russia and the UK do in Europe, but every round the US purchases two bombers and a fighter as part of a KGF strategy.
Have you ever seen this in action? What are your thoughts, or experiences?
1 bid, 2 bid, 3 bid, 4
Okay this’ll be fun. I’d like to know how you guys would bid given all the different possibilities. Let’s run it between 1 and 8. So for instance, here’s mine.
1 Bid: $1 to Japan
2 Bid: $1 to Japan, $1 to Germany
3 Bid: 1 Infantry in Libya.
4 Bid: 1 Infantry in Libya, $1 to Japan
5 Bid: 1 tank in Libya
6 Bid: 1 tank in Libya, $1 to Japan
7 Bid: 1 tank in Libya, $1 to Japan, $1 to Germany
8 Bid: 1 infantry in Libya, 1 artillery in Libya, $1 to Japan
Couple German questions
Hey all, haven’t been on in a few years, glad I still have my account. Still undefeated with 30+ games under my belt, but still endeavoring to be better.
Germany’s easily my weakest power, so I’d like to get some expert opinions on a few things I’ve never been sure about. Assuming you don’t build any ships in G1, or move the Baltic fleet, and assuming the British hit that fleet with both fighters and a bomber, do you submerge the submarines or let them soak hits for the destroyer in hopes of shooting down planes?
How many soldiers do you think it’s responsible to leave in Western Europe assuming the SZ1 UK transport isn’t sunk? How about if it is sunk? What if you just absolutely don’t want to leave tanks in Western Europe?
Thanks for the feedback, it’s good to be back.
