Global 1940, No. 14 Game Report:
This is the only post in the No. 14 Game Report.
Axis: Dark Knight
Allies: The Captain
From Early 1940, Germany launched several U-Boat attacks in the Atlantic and kept an increased U-Boat production until Early 1942.
After the Fall of France in Early 1940, Germany launched the attack on the Soviet Union in Late 1941.
The German advance was gradually disrupted by continuous massive Soviet Paratrooper attacks behind the German lines - which kept the German frontline units short of supplies.
Skillful Soviet Strategic Planning which included Paratrooper units, Mines, small scale counter-attacks all over the Eastern Front and a massive production of Tank units and Red Army Conscription Infantry units - gradually slowed the German advance - and simply wore down the German Army on the Eastern Front.
By Late 1942 the German advance on the Eastern Front came to a halt, as the Western Allies landed in Europe - and the Soviets prepared for Operation Bagration.
Japan launched attacks against Asia and the Pacific - triggering the US National Guard to spawn in Late 1941.
After the Japanese capture of all Chinese territories in Early 1942, the Allies started to push the Japanese forces back by jumping from one island to the next.
By Late 1942 the Japanese forces were still building up for an offensive against Soviet Union - but Allied offensive operations in Burma and the South Pacific hindered Japan from launching a massive offensive against Soviet Union.
In Early 1942 the first US troops landed in North Africa.
From then on, US offensive operations were launched both in Europe and the Pacific.
In Early 1942, the United Kingdom destroyed the last German Wolf Packs in the Atlantic.
Gradually the UK economy was strengthened - and offensive operations were launched in Europe, Africa and Asia.
By Late 1942, the Allies were pushing back the Axis forces all over the World.
In Early 1943 there were no options left for the Axis Powers to halt the Allied onslaught - and an Axis Surrender was a fact by Early 1943.
The above game report shows a classic example of a War Of Attrition - the Axis were simply outproduced in all types of weapons - and due to a superior Combined Allied Strategic Plan, the Axis were not only outproduced - they were also outmaneuvered.
The pictures below show the situation at the beginning of Early 1943.
