So should Germany not attack the Netherlands when it attacks Poland, France, etc, in ~July 1939? I guess Germany could just ignore the Netherlands until Japan is ready, then both Germany and Japan could completely knock out the Netherlands. Thanks for the input.

GW36: No Incentive to attack the Netherlands
In Global War 1936, does Germany have any incentive to attack the Netherlands? Sure it is worth 2 IPP, but as a result, the British gain control of the DEI and a lot of money as a result. If Germany does not attack the Netherlands, then the British will not get the 9 IPP (I think it is 9) that the DEI supply. Also, Japan could attack the forces of the Netherlands in the DEI and only incur 2D12s worth of income increase from the Americans instead of the 5D12s that would occur if Japan attacked the DEI if it was under control of the British. So I ask, should Germany even touch the Netherlands? What does everyone think?
Confusion about technology
In the rules for Global War 1936, it states on page 25 “No technology can be researched prior to July 1939”. Does this mean that no country can make any tech rolls before July 1939, or does it mean that the final stage of any technology cannot be researched before July 1939? The reason I ask is because in the game I am currently playing, my group has assumed a country can make tech rolls before July 1939, however, the technology cannot be utilized until July 1939. In my current game, America has spammed tech rolls, and now the current date is January 1940 with America having Long Range Aircraft, Heavy Bombers, and Jet Fighters, which seems extremely unbalanced. Hopefully someone could clarify this.
