World War Two Lesson Plan Student Journal: German Foreign Minister

BEFORE SIMULATION BEGINS. 

  • Pull half of troops out of Poland, so Germany will attack it but then we can go attack Germany because they will be weaker then. Then we can just get Poland from Germany back for Poland.
  • PROTECT Pacific, because Japan will get rubber and power will go up.
  • Wipe out Bulgaria, Romania, Hungaria they are Laura and Ashley so it’ll be easy to wipe out.
  • We are going to give rubber to the other allies to help everyone out.
  • We need to ally with the Netherlands.
  • Wipe Italy out and put troops in Belgium because those are the only ways Germany can get to France.
  • Need to take out Japan’s Navy. If we take out Northeast China and Manchuria they have nothing.
  • Unless Belgium makes an alliance with them they are going to attack Belgium.
  • USSR can’t be official allies with us until Germany attacks their central government.
  • Other classes took over Poland and Denmark. Soviet Union took over P2.
  • If Germany takes over Belgium, France is going to need troops right away.
  • We want to get Norway and Denmark the first move so we can own the Baltic Sea.
  • It’s part of Poland’s objective to have us announce that we will protect them.

1939

United States and China have formed alliances. Romania, and Germany are alliances. Yugoslavia and Germany are alliances. Can’t trust Bulgaria because they were going to form an alliance with Germany. We are looking to maybe attack Libya, it would be very convenient to have.  Japanese attacks U.S. at Pearl Harbor, Japanese is victorious. Germany declared war on Norway. We might take it over later instead. Secret alliance with Belgium and Yugoslavia.

Germany attacking Netherlands. We aren’t going to help because then we won’t have enough troops left. We are thinking about moving troops into Belgium. We attacked the German navy in the Baltic Sea. We were victorious! We put one troop into Denmark. We are aiming to gain control of Norway so we can control the Baltic Sea. Poland is going to attack Germany East Prussia, there are currently no German troops defending it so it’s just a smart easy move. France is letting Italy move their navy into the West Mediterranean Sea peacefully so they don’t attack them. We have a feeling Germany is the one trying to get Italy to move north so eventually they can attack all of our navies. We are going to try to combine all of our navies to destroy Italy’s. We ended up moving troops into France. We can defend Belgium at any point. USSR moved troops into Poland. Germany declared war on Belgium. I knew they would! We are defending Belgium and France is also helping us defend them. We have to help defend them because it is our objective, plus we don’t want them getting any closer to France. Germany was victorious. Germany also attacked Poland and were victorious. We didn’t help because we weren’t asked to help, and we didn’t have troops nearby to help defend anyway. I think we should attack Belgium (Germany) next move, because they are going to attack France next. France wouldn’t let Italy move their navy through them, so Italy wasn’t able to move. Germany moved most of their troops into Belgium, they are obviously ganging up on France. If I were to change anything that happened today it would have been to move more troops into Belgium right away so Germany wouldn’t even attack it in the first place, because now it is going to be really hard to get Belgium back since Germany has so many troops in it right now. Next move they are going to want to attack France.

1940

We decided not to declare any war. Germany made a proposal for France to move all of their troops into F2, so they won’t do much damage to their army when they attack France. France likes this because then it can defend itself better against Italy. We don’t know what is behind Germany’s schemes in this though, and there might be more to it then what meets the eye. France ended up splitting its army from F3, into F1 and F2 so it can defend itself from both sides, and we moved some of our troops into F1 to help defend France, with the help of our navy and Frances. The U.S. is going to load troops and move them into France in its next turn. We are obviously getting ready to protect ourselves from Germany. We are making a secret alliance with Yugoslavia. Germany declared war on Denmark. We only lost one troop, and didn’t do anything about it because we don’t think it is worth it. The axis now controls the Baltic Sea. Germany attacked East Prussia, which is Poland’s land. We were not able to help defend Poland because our troops weren’t over there; there was no way we would be able to help. Romania also attacked Poland, again we weren’t able to help since we don’t have any troops over there. Germany is moving most of their troops to Belguim, showing again that they are going to attack France. They are also moving toward Russia, showing that they are going to attack them soon as well. Any war for us right now is pointless because we would be defeated no matter what. We don’t have enough navy to move all of our troops if we wanted to declare war anyway. I thought we should attack the heart of Germany in G2, but we don’t have enough navy to transport enough troops there to get a victory. Instead we decided to just move troops from Great Britain into France. Italy attacked France in F2. We did not want to move troops down because then Germany could easily attack F1. France ended up being victorious, good thing we decided not to move troops, because I’m pretty sure Germany would have attacked. Germany is continually moving troops into Belgium. We are going to take Libya, that way we will have control over all of the southern countries. We were victorious! Again, we are moving troops from Great Britain into France. Germany ended up taking over F1.

1941

The United States, France, and us (Great Britain) are attacking Japan’s navy. If we destroy their navy it is a major step toward our victory of the war. We ended up losing against them, but we destroyed most of their navy which makes the Axis powers a lot weaker. We are thinking about taking the Netherlands that way we can get to the heart of Germany easier. We are continuing to use our navy to move troops into France to help protect them. The Axis gained Yugoslavia. Germany attacked France in F2. We are going to move our troops down to help protect, the United States will then defend F3. We lost to Germany and they gained France. We need to do something before the Axis continues to attack France. Germany attacked F3. The U.S. is bringing in troops, we decided not to help protect because we would lose anyway, and that would be a waste of our troops. Germany ended up being victorious. Germany is spreading all of their troops out now, making it incredibly difficult for us to attack them anywhere. It is hard for us to move troops because whenever we want to move troops we have to use our navy and can only move a certain amount of troops at one time. We are thinking about using all of our navy to pick up the United States’ troops. We need troops to be able to do anything. The Soviet Union tried attacking Finland, but Finland was victorious. Germany attacked Sweden leaving Norway wide open and easy to attack and conquer.

1942

Soviet Union is now apart of the allies. We are going to occupy Arabia, just so we take control over all of the southern land. Japan is attacking China. We are sending troops from India to help China. We were victorious! Our work in Asia is over. The Germans are attacking the USSR. We decided to attack Norway, and we won, more land for the allies. Right now, Germany believes that we are not going to attack them, and that we are actually going to attack the USSR. He made an agreement with us for us not to attack him, in return we get the Baltic Sea. He wanted that agreement, so he could save his mainland. We are going to deceive Germany, and come out victorious!  The allies gained Manchukuo, more orange on the map for us! We are moving troops from the United States into the North Sea. The Axis is continuing to attack Russia. Italy attacked Greece. We figured Italy would do that. Germany is moving troops out of Sweden and into Finland. Right now we are secretly allied with USSR, while we are using Germany, to attack Germany. The United States attacked Sweden and Germany didn’t defend it at all, he obviously just wants to keep his mainland. Everyone is clueless about what we are doing. Germany even wants us to become allies with them, when they have no idea that we are going to stab them in the back. We will see how it goes tomorrow!

1943

Germany is attacking the USSR. Italy attacked our navy in the West Mediterranean Sea. They destroyed our navy. We are looking to take over Italy. We lied to Germany and told them that it is one of our objectives to take Italy. We told him this, so he will move troops out of France so we can get down to Italy. Germany is scared to do this though, because he thinks that the U.S. will take over him. Germany isn’t letting us move through France. In order for Italy to join our side, it has to look hopeless for Germany. To make it look hopeless for Germany, we need to attack the heart of Germany. We are creating an alliance with USSR. Germany is continuing to attack and conquer the USSR. Italy attacked our navy again, they won again. Italy is moving some troops into France, probably wanting to protect both sides of her. We conquered F3, this will give us a foot hole into Italy. We attacked Finland and were victorious! Right now, we are just trying to get as much land as we can get. We are going to crush Italy now, we are sick of them taking all of our land!

1944

The Soviet Union is moving as much troops as they can, in order to defend themselves from Germany. The Soviet Union is attacking the Italian navy. We are going to try to attack G1, first we are going to have to attack F1, of Germany. The Axis ended up defeating us, it’s okay that he won, because he can’t use those troops next turn to attack us because he used them in battle against us. The U.S. ended up being victorious and gained central Germany! We are attacking the USSR that is now Germany’s with USSR troops and our troops. We are just trying to continue to gain land! The Axis ended up winning. Italy is attacking us in Palestine. The Axis also won Finland from us. Germany gained back G1 from us, they only have 5 troops left in there though. There are really no troops in any of Germany, so we are going to take all of that land, except for Italy. Italy is going to join our side anyway, once we take all of Germany’s land. We are attacking Germany, which was once France, we gained it, because the Axis decided not to defend it.

1945

Italy has formed an alliance with the United States. Germany has talked to Italy and us, and wants us to pretend to have an alliance with the United States, but attack them in the end. We can do this, because none of our objectives tells us that we have to stay loyal to the United States, but we want to become neutral, because we don’t want to be allies with Italy. We don’t want to be allies with Italy, because they attacked France, and we have to stay loyal to France. Right now we are looking to attack Italy, because they attacked France. Italy is continuing to attack our countries in the south. We are not defending it, because we are saving our troops for when we attack Italy itself. The Soviet Union ended up attacking Romania. I’m guessing it is one of their objectives to gain Romania. We attacked Italy, and gained back France. We cut ties with United States, because they were allies with Italy. Right when we announced this, the U.S. broke their alliance with Italy, and wants to be allies with us again. We have not agreed to this yet. The United States threatens to crush us, I think we should be allies with them again, but my president will not listen to me, so now we are going to die. The United States attacked Germany. We attacked Palestine and gained it. We are going to attack Italy, and we were victorious!
