This Journal is from a small class where multiple countries had to be controlled by one person
Britain + France 3 1938
France is in the Munich pact with Germany and does not want to get into another World War with Germany. Mussolini and Hotler have become very powerful in their government systems and it scares both Britain and France. Both countries watched and let Hitler take the Sudetenland and promised he was done then took all of czek. This was the last straw. War looks to be declared in the coming months. Hitler is moving forces to the border of Poland and if it’s touched the Allied powers will declare war on Germany and put an end to their games. The USA doesn’t want to enter this war but winning will be very difficult if not brought in. The allies will keep poking at them to get them to join us and defeat Hitler.
Britain + France 3 1939
1939 was a year full of movement for the allies. We have so many less troops and they aren’t as strong or as advanced as the Germans. So we need to be conservative. The USA and USSR don’t want to join us. The USA wants to stay neutral and the USSR just signed a nonaggression pact with Germany. This is scary to think about. The allies moved forces to help China reinforce their borders with Japan. Their troops are weak and I sent them resources to help improve this. With our help China will be stronger than ever. The allies helped defend Norway and had control for a small period of time but it was soon taken over by Germany who controls both Norway and Denmark. I’m trying to get them to move as many troops as possible out of Mainland Germany so when I attack they can’t do anything about it. As we wait we are stacking up troops on the Maginot Line and waiting for the right time to attack.
Britain + France 3 1940
The allies went a little on the offensive end in 1940. We took control over Libya which was in Italian control. While Germany fought hard to take over Denmark and Norway, we kept advancing troops into France to prevent an all out invasion from Italy and to be ready to attack Germany. The japanese took over the western part of the USA. This was a big mistake on their part because the USA mobilized and joined the allied powers. Since the USA’s army is becoming bigger and bigger the allies are working as hard as we can to send their troops into Europe. The japanese are expanding their rule throughout China and what it looks like towards Burma. Japan’s troops are stronger than anticipated and just keep coming. It looks like they are going to attack Australia with a big navy. This is only them wasting troops for pointless land. In the coming years with the USA mobilizing an attack on Germany is imminent and we will win this war and put an end to these totalitarian governments.
Britain + France 3 1941
1941 was a successful year for the Allies. The Germans expanded their rule to the northern hemisphere and into the USSR. The axis teamed up and took yugoslavia as well. They attacked from all sides and there was nothing we could do to help. The axis made their first attack in France and they were unsuccessful thanks to the help of the British army. Italy’s troops seem to be weak. Next year we will attack Italy and take them over. This could catch the axis off guard. Germany is really spreading out their troops to take over other countries, this is making mainland Germany less powerful. Within the next few years we will attack the country of Germany and end this war.
Britain + France 3 1942
Since Germany attacked the USSR in 1941 the USSR has joined the allied powers. This is a huge gain for us because they have so many troops to fight. This means we will make Germany fight a two front war. They can’t hold this up. The Italians attacked F-2 of France with over 3,000 troops. Our defenses held up and we attacked them right back and took Italy. We used the USSR to attack the few thousand troops in Romania and we depleted the whole army. The Axis are starting to tire in Europe. Soon they will go belly up once we take all countries surrounding Germany. The USA keeps mobilizing every year and they are well trained troops. We need to work as fast as we can to get their troops down in F-1 of France and attack through the Maginot Line to overpower the Germans. Meanwhile Japan in the east is expanding. We are countering this with the eastern USSR and giving them problems.
Britain + France 3 1943
The axis powers started to expand in 1943. Japan took all of China and almost all of the eastern USSR. The United States is still mobilizing so need to work swiftly to get their troops ready to attack Germany. German troops are stronger than anticipated. We sent our first wave to attack them in 1943. This killed maybe 300 Germans. Their troops get the defense bonus and are already stronger than ours. We need to find a way to attack them, with everything we got to take Germany. Italy and Hungary joined the allies and are eager to help us beat the axis powers. Within the next year we will deplete the German army to the breaking point.
Britain + France 1944
The Germans are advancing upon the USSR and there is nothing we can do about it. The Japanese have also started to take over the middle eastern countries. The japanese empire is expanding rapidly and so are the Germans. We need to in 1945 attack the German mainland over and over again. This will eventually make them give in. There are more than enough troops ready to fight in the USA and In Britain. If we can use the navys to get to Germany we can win this war. The Germans tried to take Italy but that backfired on them. Next year will be all battles. I’m not sure if Germany will back their troops from the east but it won’t matter we will fight and win at any cost.
Britain + France 1945
The German troops are strong. There is nothing more to say. We used over 4,000 troops to attack the German mainland on two different attacks. The German troops held off both our attacks. If we had one more year we would’ve attacked with 2,000 more troops. But I’m not quite sure if that would even have won. The German troops in Germany are just too strong. They killed all of the USSR and took over the entire map of Asia. We held France and Britain but as I’ve said before troops were just no match for Germany. They took all our resources and depleted our troops ratings. There was nothing we could do about that because we needed to keep using the navys to send US troops to Europe.
