World War II Simulation Student Journal: Hungary, Rumania & Bulgaria

World War II Simulation

Rumania 1 1939

This is the start of something big. Bigger than what we could have imagined. I sure hope this is not a repeat of the First Great War. I hope this one is done with quicker. We have more technology and I have powerful allies. 

Bulgaria 1 1939

I am thinking about allying with the Axis. They are very powerful with Germany at the center and Japan and Italy behind them. It seems like the smart move. I will let this play out for a while before I make my decision. 

Hungary 1 1939

I lost so much territory after the Great War. The West has made no effort to help me in regaining any of it. The Axis has made me offer that I need to think about before I make my decision.

Rumania 1 1940

I donated some of my oil to Germany and Japan. I must support them if I want any help from the in the future. I will fully support them until the end. No matter the outcome. 

Bulgaria 1 1940

I have not made my decision yet. I have been weighing my options and looking at the pros and cons carefully. I want to make the best decision I can for my people. I shall make my final decision soon.

Hungary 1 1940

Germany has made me a promising offer. I like the sound of it a lot. They would help me regain some of my lost territory if I assist them in the war. I am almost certain of my decision. I shall not announce it yet. I will wait just a bit longer.

Rumania 1 1941

I have received help from Bulgaria, Hungary, and Germany to take Ukraine. It is a large chunk of land and I have hold of it, it has weakened the USSR. My country is now safe from attack by the Allies. I am surrounded by my own allies. 

Bulgaria 1 1941

I have made my final decision to join the Axis powers. My first act as part of the Axis is to help Rumania take over Ukraine. It was a successful attack and I have gained the trust of Rumania. Hopefully I can receive some resources from them. It would help tremendously. 

Hungary 1 1941

I announced my alliance to the Axis powers. They have offered to help me regain my territory that had been lost after the Great War. I trust that they will help me when I call for it. I had helped Rumania take Ukraine and I have gained their trust. I will need them to support me in the future.

Rumania 1 1942

After taking Ukraine, Germany has been helping me push further into the USSR. I have been assisting them as they help me simultaneously. Our goal is to wipe them out so they can do no damage to us. Japan has been dealing with them in the East. We are pinching them from the west. They cannot receive help from their allies.

Bulgaria 1 1942

The troops I sent to help with the taking of Ukraine have been pushing northeast with Germany’s troops to wipe out the USSR. I have received word that once they are gone, we will be pushing back west towards France. 

Hungary 1 1942

My troops are helping Germany greatly. They are following Germany into the USSR and offering more fresh troops to fight when needed. I have more troops here to send west when we head towards France.

Rumania 1 1943

I have sent the rest of my troops west into Italy. The plan is to take out France and then Great Britain. If we take out France, then we have all the land. Great Britain will be tough to take with their tough navy. Germany will have to deal with that themselves. I am only able to help on land. I am ready for what lies ahead.

Bulgaria 1 1943

I have sent word to my troops in the USSR to start heading back west towards France. Germany has requested that we assist them in the taking of France. I am ready to help them in any way possible. 

Hungary 1 1943

Germany has sent me word of the plans that lie ahead. I plan to keep my troops in the USSR are for now and send what I have at my disposal west. Germany has made me a great offer and I would like to honor it by helping them when I can. 

Rumania 1 1944

The USSR has been completely wiped out. Our troops are spread but I have moved whats left into Italy. Our next step is to take France. It will be a great achievement if we are able to take it. 

Bulgaria 1 1944

My troops and resting and resupplying in Italy along with Rumania. Our next big plan is to eliminate France and Great Britain. I am sure Hungary will be on the way to help us all as well. 

Hungary 1 1944

My troops have arrived in Italy and are resupplying. Rumania and Bulgaria have also placed troops here. We have many troops stationed in Italy ready to go for France. Germany also has troops in Belgium ready to attack. 

Rumania 1 1945

We have attempted to attack France. Germany had attacked them from Belgium and had failed. It is up to our armies to take a part of France and push in from there. We have obtained a small portion and have pushed north towards Belgium. We took 2 parts of France. The last attempt had been a failure. 

Bulgaria 1 1945

My troops, along with Germany, Italy, and Hungary, had failed to take part of France. Rumania and other groups of German and Italian troops had been successful. We might have failed on our side, But they will be able to push our way and maybe take over the last part of France.

Hungary 1 1945

My troops had failed me. Our armies were unsuccessful in taking our part of France. Rumania, the Germans, and Italy had been successful on their part. They need to push west to take the rest of France.  This war has been successful for the Axis. I hope to regain my lost territory when the war is over. 

WW2 Simulation Journal: United States

Journal Entry – United States 1938 (Orientation)

It’s the beginning of what we think will be the second world war. We’re not sure yet but we believe that because we have a lot of natural resources we will be a main target. Hopefully this is not the case but knowing Hitler’s history and the way he leads that might be a possibility. Hitler isn’t the only person we’re worried about though, we have various other countries to look at because it’s not only Germany that’s low on resources. 

As of right now we have decided to stay neutral and remain passive for now. We don’t plan on attacking anyone until we’re attacked ourselves. We do plan on staying loyal to the Neutral Powers but we’d rather not get involved until we’re forced to. We have enough resources and we’re willing to help people of our alliance. But we, The United States, will not be forcing an attack on someone until we’re attacked. 

Journal Entry – United States 1939 

It’s only day one and Germany had already attacked strong taking over the Netherlands and Poland. This really shows how power-hungry Germany is and how aggressive they’re willing to be to get land. I believe Germany is in it for the land and the resources because I’ve heard talk that Germany is relying on their alliance for their resources. Hopefully they do not attack us because we’re trying to remain neutral as of right now. 

With the United States being strong in resources, we have some concern that Germany will come for us next to take over our resources. If that is the case, we will have to defend and probably call for some help from our alliance to help stop Germany.  We, The United States, are going to try to get our point across that we do not want to be involved in the war and that we’d like to stay out. We would like to remain neutral as long as possible and keep to ourselves as of right now. Somehow, I’ll need to communicate this to all the countries around me and hopefully they abide to what’s been told to them. 

Journal Entry – United States 1940

The war is starting to heat up and countries are betraying some of their alliances over power and land. Japan had taken over a lot of China and it’s believed that they’ll continue to do that until they have taken all of China. The Axis Powers have been attacking many countries and they’re taking over a lot of land. This concerns us heavily because if they’re power-hungry then they might decide to go after the United States. 

So far, we’re sticking to our plan of staying neutral and staying out of the war. We’ve decided that we want to focus on fixing the depression and we want to stay to ourselves. We will NOT attack anyone and we will remain neutral but we have decided that we WILL provide resource to other countries. We believe that if we keep our resources to ourselves than the chances of us getting targeted will increase. So, we will be supplying resources to other countries but we will not be getting involved in war and sending troops to other countries. 

Journal Entry – United States 1941

Japan has officially involved us into this war by bombing Pearl Harbor. This is MAJOR and we have decided to side with the Allies. We WILL be taking action in this and we will work to take over the Axis powers. We are planning on gaining troops and taking over the Axis Power lands and getting revenge on Japan. 

We have sided with the Allied powers and we are figuring out how to take over the Axis land. We, the United States, is the only country that mobilizes and gains troops throughout the war. We plan on taking advantage of this and using this to overpower other countries. Japan will be suffering consequences for bombing Pearl Harbor and WE DO NOT plan on going easy on them.  

Journal Entry – United States 1942

Today was not the greatest day for the Allied Powers. Japan had went in strong into China and had taken over a lot of land. China couldn’t do much and Japan had burnt through a lot of troops. My plan was to move towards Japan and take them over although the Allied Powers have a different idea. 

The Allied Powers want me to move my Navy towards Belgium to help them take over Belgium. I’d would like to provide assistance but after Pearl Harbor I wanted to be focused on taking over Japan. Willingly but also very unwillingly, the Allied Powers decided to attack Belgium which wasn’t a smart move and I stated that. They knew it was a war that we couldn’t win but continued to attack. This has a big effect on us, The United States, because we won’t be able to carry out our plan as smooth as we liked. Our focus from now on is to attack Japan and take over all their land. If we can attack Japan then we will be able to conquer their land quite easily due to them burning through all their troops. 

Journal Entry – United States 1943

Once again the Axis powers had attacked real hard and are taking over a lot of land. Japan, which had bombed us, took most of the land East of the USSR and the USSR is worried that they’re going to be invaded. Germany and Japan are closing in on the USSr and I plan on moving towards them to help.

After Japan had attacked us, we plan on going through Japan and taking over as much land as possible. We plan on taking our Navy and moving troops through the back but that’s a little difficult at the moment due to the Allies. The Allies keep requesting help, which id gladly like to supply, but it’s difficult when you have to do different things to maintain power. So far, we’re still focused on going through Japan to help the USSR and take over Japan and get revenge for what they had done. 

Journal Entry – United State 1944

It’s not looking very good for the Allied powers as we are starting to crumble apart. I am far from my allied countries so it’s hard to provide a bunch of help to them. They’re also requesting a bunch of resources from us which we will provide but we will also need some if we plan on taking over Japan. We’re doing the most with what we got trying to take over the Axis powers but it’s looking rough right now. 

The Axis powers are looking really strong right now because they had taken over a bunch of land that they needed. They had taken over the USSR and they have spread all throughout to help them maintain their land. We’re still trying to work our way through Japan which shouldn’t be very hard because they’re retreating closer to the USSR and leaving a bunch of land open. We will continue to do as much as we can but it’s not sure how much longer we can go without being over powered by the Axis powers. 

Journal Entry – United States 1945 

We’re making moves towards the Axis Powers and we’re working to take over the Germans. We’ve already taken out the German Navy and we’ve worked on taking over Belgium. We almost won that battle but felt short but we did weaken their military in Belgium by a lot. Hopefully, this’ll help us take over Belgium and help us move throughout the land that Germany is in. 

We’ve defended pretty good against the Germans and the Axis Powers so far by holding good defense. We’ve defended a good chunk of France so far and we’re trying to protect against the Axis Powers taking all of it over. We weren’t very successful taking over Japan and getting revenge but we did help our alliance and we maintained the land that we could. 

WWII Simulation Student Journal: China & Finland

China 1 1938

Today was the day where my country gathered it’s best militaristic ideas and strategies.  We need to come up with a plan to keep Japan away, which is our biggest struggle at the moment.  I hope to make a secret alliance with Serbia so they can step in once they can stop being neutral.   I plan to try and use all of China’s military and move them around as needed.  We might need more help from other countries because of our weak military ratings.  The only problem, is that I don’t know where that help will come from.  

Finland 1 1938

Today was a stressful day of plan making.  I’ve been thinking about who I should make alliances with first.  While organizing that,  I also had to create a plan as to what I will do once I, or the Soviet Union are able to stop being neutral.  I am scared for what the USSR has in store for me, I fear they will turn on me and take advantage of my country.  Next year I plan to form an alliance with the USSR to try and keep the peace, and my territory. 

China 1 1939

This year is already off to a bad start.  I have lost North Central China to North East China (ruled by Japan).  I tried my best to save it, and I thought it would work to combine North Central China and South Central China’s  troops.  Those two combined gave me 2,400 troops against North East China’s 1,000 troops.  I was in complete shock when I saw the result of the battle; an Axis Powers victory.  I need to make big moves, and it needs to move quickly.  

Finland 1 1939

This year was quiet for Finland.  I tried to convince Germany to protect me if and when the USSR decides to come for Finland, but they just keep acting flakey and not “all in” tot he deal.  I know there’s something sketchy going on between us, but I’m not sure why.  I need to form a secret alliance with them before it’s too late.  Something else I tried was to make an informal alliance with the USSR.  They fell for it!  I told them I’d give them my troops since they threatened to take me over if I don’t… but little do they know, I have an incredible army rating!  I know it won’t be long before they come for Finland’s blood, but if I can just stall and fend for myself for a while, I might be able to gain support from German troops and/or the German Navy.

China 1 1940

My heart and mind are being broke into millions of pieces.  Japan has taken over two of my China’s territories.  China is hopeless, there are no countries around to help defend us or donate any supplies and troops.  A positive that has come out of this is sympathy from the United State, they have agreed to give China seven oil!  I am so grateful for their support through these hard times.  The lack of respect from other countries, especially Japan, has made it hard to have hope for the future of this country.  Germany has been suspiciously kind to China… they have politely declined my request for troops and raw materials, but thankfully, have agreed to convincing Japan to stop attacking China for the time being.  I have a bad feeling Japan will come back for more, but for now, I need to focus on increasing my army’s rating by gaining more raw materials and troops from surrounding countries.  These  next few years could be very scary for China, and we need to be prepared. 

Finland 1 1940

This year was a bit scary for Finland.  We held strong in a battle against our enemy, the USSR.  After making a fake treaty with them, they kept their half, but Finland, not so much.    We held up a good fight thanks to our strong military.  We don’t have much left to withstand another attack though.  We’ve tried so many times to convince Germany to lend us some extra protection using their navy, but they have declined every single time the question comes up.  We can hold our own for now, but that won’t be true for long.  I know we will need back up soon, but the only question is where that back up will come from.  

China 1 1941

This was a very quiet year for China.  I fear that Japan will come back to finish us off, so we’ve been laying low. I want China to keep the USSR’s leftover troops from our last battle up by the USSR boarder for extra protection against Japan.  I doubt that it will be enough, but every little bit will help in weakening Japan.  I know the USSR is planning on weakening Japan as much as they possibly can, I just need to figure out a way to regain my lost territory after all or at least most of Japan’s troops are gone.   Japan is focusing on the United States now, but I have confidence the U.S. can fight back.   

Finland 1 1941

This year was a sad year for Finland.  We lost all of our troops to the USSR.  We knew this might happen, but we thought we were well prepared for it.  With military support from  Germany, I was sure that we would win the battle, but it was a lost cause.  Now I need to focus on maintaining my status of staying out of European affairs after forming a public alliance with Germany.  I can’t believe Japan attacked the United States!  I have a feeling they will regret that decision.  

China 1 1942

What a depressing year.  China lost every last drop of it’s territory.  There was hardly anything we could do to save it though.  We managed to secure goods from the United States, but they barely made a dent in our military’s rating.  With no surrounding countries strong enough to help, we knew from day one it would be a lost cause.  Thank goodness for the USSR, though.  They managed to dig us out of some deep holes earlier in the war.   Sadly, their supply of troops didn’t last forever, and eventually we had no extra protection.  

Finland 1 1942

After a harsh year last year, we have decided to stay completely out of European affairs.  We had to disown our alliance with Germany to do this.  I wanted to so badly tell Germany what the Allies were up to, but I knew Finland had to stay out of whatever evil plots they had going for the Allies.  It was what was best for Finland and the Allies.  

China 1 1943

China is out of troops, and the past couple years have been lonely.  We’ve just been watching the war nag on for the past couple of years, and there is nothing we can do now to regain our original territory.  It’s not looking too good for the allies.  The Axis powers have been taking over every country they can get their hands on.  All I can hope for is the strength of the Allied powers so that they can regain all of their lost territory as well. 

Finland 1 1943

Finland has been sitting back and watching the war, just like China.  It has been hard to see all the territory being lost due to the horrifying Axis Powers.  They keep attacking all the weak countries, and theirs nothing anyone can do about it.  Finland just can’t wait for this horrible and terrifying war to end.

China 1 1944

For China, nothing has happened.  I left the Allied Powers in charge of China while I was away, but they hardly had to do anything concerning it.  The war has moved to mostly Central Europe and there is really nothing China can to to help out over there or anything we can do to regain our original territory.  This war will hopefully end soon.  We will hope for the best until that time comes. 

Finland 1 1944

Nothing has happened to Finland for a long time.  I left Finland in the hands of the Allied Powers while I was away, although nothing happened.  Hopefully this war doesn’t continue for much longer, I’m not sure how many more years all these countries can endure another World War.  

China 1 1945

Finally this horrible war looks as though it is coming to an end.  It has been very quiet over in China, nothing has touched us, let alone harm us, nor gotten close.   We are hopeful for the future, though it will take much rebuilding due to Japan’s horrific take over.  This war is now focused mostly in the Germany and France area, far from us.  China is routing for the Allied Powers.  We hope they will be able to regain all the lost territory of past Allies and serve the Axis Powers justice.        

Finland 1945

I received intel from Germany that they regained my Finland’s territory last year while I was absent, but something inside me tells me that’s not true.  A couple of the Allies,  Norway and Sweden, told me that he didn’t really try and regain my territory for me.  It’s still taken over by the Axis Powers, which is why Germany considered Finland “regained” because of our alliance.  It was never supposed to go public, but stay private.  There is nothing left to do.  The war is finally over.  

Second World War Simulation Journal: Yugoslavia & Belgium

Yugoslavia / Belgium 1, 1938

We, the country of Yugoslavia, shall trick Germany into helping my country. We don’t plan to keep a long term friendship with them, nor will we help their military at all as we are allied. They look to us to help them take control of Greece. But they don’t seem very trustworthy since they used force to make me join their side. So when they time comes, I’ll betray them and help the allies. It may be a suicide mission, but at least I’ll go down with a little bit of pride.

The country of Belgium is planning to join the allies to help them hold off Germany and save France from being totally destroyed. But Germany has their hand around my throat because there would be no way that only a couple of us allied countries could hold off Germany alone. They have too many troops posted outside of Belgium and the only way for me to survive is to join the Axis powers. For now I’ll have to watch Germany closely and analyze what their goal is before making a decision.

Yugoslavia / Belgium 1, 1939

Yugoslavia has officially created a fake alliance with Germany, but we don’t plan to keep it up for long. I have secretly met with the Allied forces to decide how we should move forward from this moment on. But I haven’t gotten much of a response from anyone. So I gave the Allied powers a year to help me decide. Until then I don’t plan to attack anyone so that I can guarantee a surprise attack. Germany doesn’t realize that Yugoslavia plans to betray them so quickly in the war. I hope they are prepared to be surprised because I wonder how they will react.

I plan to be neutral for a long while as everyone else kills each other. And I plan to join the Axis powers since I would be completely destroyed by Germany and I would lose all control of Belgium. So to play it safe and to give me more time to play my cards. It might mess up the plans of everyone else, but at least I’ll keep my control. I can turn the war just by joining the opposite side. Here goes nothing!

Yugoslavia / Belgium 1, 1940

I have joined the Allies and I have been wiped out immediately by Germany. I caught them off guard, but it wasn’t much of an impact as I intended it to. It seems as though the Allies don’t have a chance against Germany. But I suppose my sacrifice wasn’t such a waste, as I divided Germany’s army when they attacked me. So it will allow the Allies to attack where they have been weakened.

I shocked the war by joining the Axis powers. They know that Belgium is an advantage in the battles between France and Germany. There were Allied troops in Belgium when I switched sides. It was a blindside that no one saw coming. They are confused and won’t know how to react when Germany attacks. I cannot wait to see what happens now between France and Germany. Let’s wipe out all the competition and win this war.

Yugoslavia / Belgium 1, 1941

France and Great Britain are the only threats to us in this war and must lookout for their navy and men. With Italy and Germany using Belgium to travel through, it will destroy the Allied forces and eliminate anyone in our way. We plan to take out the USSR and then head to the west to take out France. It’s a two-front war and we need to take out USSR asap. Japan will attack the USSR from the east and Germany will attack from the west. Hopefully this will work and we can dominate this war.

Yugoslavia / Belgium 1, 1942

We are building up our military to go to the USSR and wipe them out. Japan is making plans to move up through Asia and start by attacking Eastern USSR. Then Germany will start moving through Belarus and farther up and take full control of the USSR. Our plan is to take as many countries as we can and to take full control of Europe. No one stands a chance against Germany and the Axis powers. They might as well surrender now and to save us the hassle. We are number one.

Yugoslavia / Belgium 1, 1943

Now that we have wiped out the USSR, we are aiming to take France. We make our way west and then use Belgium to take France from there. There is hardly any resistance and nobody can stop us. If we continue at this rate, we will win the war for sure. Germany is crushing everyone with the help of Italy and Japan. This is going great. As we continue to sweep to the East, the Allied forces plan to gather troops to help back up France and to enforce a wall of defense. All we have to do is block off the two entrances to France from Germany and corner them.

Yugoslavia / Belgium 1, 1944

We have taken Asia and most of Europe. We plan to head south to take Syria and to take complete control of Europe. Then we’ll send more troops to France. Our plan is still intact and we plan to carry it out from here on. We plan to send our Navy towards France too. And after France is gone, we’ll take Great Britain. That will leave the U.S. vulnerable and defenseless. And if push turns to shove, we’ll send waves after waves of our troops to the United States and take them too. 

Yugoslavia / Belgium 1, 1945

We came close to completely taking Europe but came up short handed. I’m not saying I’m mad, just that we could’ve taken more if we had more time. But this is an Axis Victory for sure. The Allies had no way of defeating us. We used strategy and predicted their actions accordingly and it was successful. I respect the Allies for putting up a good fight, and for doing such a good job. We were worried at some points and we were scared that they would actually come back and bite us in the butt. Thankfully, luck was on our side this time and we prevailed.

World War 2 Simulation Journal: Poland & The Netherlands

Poland 1 1938

I know that Germany will try to invade us so we need to do everything we can to stop them. I know that Germany want to Danzig port and thats why they want to  I will need to form an alliance with France and Britain for when the time comes and hope that they will protect me.

Netherlands 1 1938

We are not a very strong military force and there has been nothing done to us. We will remain neutral as long as we can so we can keep the peace in our country. If Germany attacks, we will have to surrender. At the moment it is in our favor to stay neutral. 

Poland 1 1939

We got invaded by Germany and we knew that we would not win. France and Great Britain said that they would defend us and secure our borders. There wasn’t a lot they could do about us getting invaded. We did all we could to keep my country but we couldn’t beat the Nazis. 

Netherlands 1 1939

Right from the beginning Germany invaded us and we couldn’t move our troops to Great Britain. We knew that Germany would destroy us if we fought them so we surrendered to them. In the Dutch East Indies we joined the Allies. Shortly after we joined the Allies we got invaded by Japan. France and Great Britain did what they could to help us but Japan took over the Dutch East Indies. 

Poland 1 1940

We have lost all of our land but we will not give up. I believe that they allies will get the upper hand soon and take back Poland for us. The allies are still continuing to fight without me and they are staying strong. 

Netherlands 1 1940

Belgium has joined the axis powers but Great Britain and France still have troops there. They will have to conquer it. Their plan is to win back the Netherlands and I believe that will happen very soon. In the Dutch East Indies and Asia, Japan has conquered almost all of it and it doesn’t look like they are stopping anytime soon. 

Poland 1 1941

The USSR had taken over the 2nd part of our country back in 1939. Today the Soviet Union and Germany fought over it and Germany was victorious so now we are completely part of the axis powers. 

Netherlands 1 1941

Germany and the USSR broke their treaty. The USSR joined the allies and they are now going to help us take back lost territory in Asia. Japan bomb the Americans in Hawaii. The USA joined the allies also and they will be a major help to us in the war. 

Poland 1 1942

Germany invaded Norway but the Soviet Union sent in troop and the allies were victorious. Norway and Sweden ended up joining the allies. The Axis powers are gaining land but they are using up their troops. 

Netherlands 1 1942

Japan has almost taken over all of Asia and Australia. France, Great Britain, and the US are trying to take Belgium. If they take over Belgium, then they can easily get my country back for me. We’re waiting for help from the US in Asia, they are our only hope in getting back the Dutch East Indies. 

Poland 1 1943

Germany keeps attack the Soviet Union and they are now running very low and troops, but Germany just keeps attacking. We’re hoping that the USSR can start winning some battles so that they can help get our lost land back from Germany. Germany is quick using up all of their forces and we’re hoping that with the help of the US we can start winning the war.

Netherlands 1 1943

Japan has taken over the Philippines and took it from the US and Siberia from the USSR. Japan now controls over all of Asia and has started moving into the other side of the Soviet Union. Great Britain has moved troops to France and are waiting for a battle against the Axis powers. The Axis powers have been very victorious lately but they are running out of forces quickly.

Poland 1 1944

Germany has now successfully taken over all of the USSR. They have run low on troops but Italy hasn’t used a lot of their troops. Most of the countries from southern Europe has put their troops into Italy and we know that they plan on attacking very soon.

Netherlands 1 1944

The US has declared war on Japan and they will hopefully start taking over all of Asia and we will get our lost territory back from the Japanese there. Germany has moved in all of their troops from Germany to Belgium and we know they will soon attack. They are now surrounding France in Belgium and Italy. 

Poland 1 1945

We fought the nazi ships and beat the north sea so now they are not able to move troops to Great Britain. Great Britain ran out of troops helping France fight against the axis powers. 

Netherlands 1 1945

The Allies sent in most of their troops to Belgium to try and take it over. We lost the battle and I have lost hope that we will get our territory back from the Axis Powers. The US lost the territory they gain in 1944 in Asia. 

World War II Simulation Journal: France

France 1, 1938

The year is 1938 and Germany has been gaining much land. I can see the leader taking over more land. My belief is that he’ll go strait for Poland. I know that He’ll also attack me later on. Learning from the last war, the person in charge will waist his allies supplies and army. Throughout the whole thing my plan is to try and convince them to not help a lot so that they have less people against us. 

The most important thing for is for me to help Poland. I’m going to send quite a bit of troops so that we can defeat Germany at Poland. My hope is to stop the Nazi’s as soon as possible, for I am scared of what they are able to do. Possibly the worst part is knowing he won’t stop at nothing—but that’s just the thing…Because he doesn’t know how to stop…I will preserve my army and defeat Germany at it’s weakest point.  

America, will most likely stay out of war for a long time, for they are frightful, but I hope they are willing to help us like the last time. The USSR is questionable—I hope that they help us to defeat Germany. 

France 1, 1939

The year is 1939 and Germany is unnecessarily taking over smaller countries. The USSR and Germany are unofficially allied with each other, and my allies and I are trying to get The USSR to ally with Great Britain and I, but it is not easy. Japan surprisingly has a strong army and I am afraid of what they are capable of. 

My plan has not changed: I still want to convince the allies or people close to Germany to not help Germany out as much. The German leader is a prideful one, and will take over everything—regardless if they are enemy or friend. I’ll have to protect Belgium as best as I can, because there is no doubt in my mind that Germany will attack there.

There is no doubt in my mind the leader of Germany will take over Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia. Belgium, I know for sure he will try to get. 

I am sorry to Poland, for I was not able to protect you—how could I? With all those Fascists? Are you as scared as I? I’m trying my best to put up a brave front, for I do not intend to loose my land t-to—GERMANY!

France 1, 1940

Everything seems to go by quickly. There is very little my Allies and I can do. We can’t attack and waist our troops, and we are not able to defeat Germany with our rating and numbers. War is frustrating us, but we will rest assured that we will stop them!

Belgium had declared allegiance with Germany! How dare they!? They were allied with US! I put my soldiers in to protect them, but they just sit there and abide to Germany!? What will I do with my soldiers!? Do I take them out??? Do I just let them stay there in hiding—let them die??? How could Belgium do this? I feel so betrayed. I feel as if the only way to protect them is to protect them from themselves—take the country over—so they do not come to me under Germany’s rule.

This is just my luck, Journal! I couldn’t protect Yugoslavia, even if I tried! Japan has taken over French Indio-China. Italy failed at taking French Into Africa, but I’m worried they will go their again and kill off my soldiers there…how am I supposed to maintain my land, if I have little army? In addition—how do I take land back with my little army??? I wish to have prepared more! I must stop at nothing to  get the USSR to join us. I hope that is very soon—no, I know it will be!

France 1, 1941

The year is 1941, and Germany’s army has dropped a bit. We are waiting until they lose a couple thousand more. As soon as they lose enough, we shall attack with the help of Great Britain.

The USSR joined the Allied Powers. Pearl Harbor attack from Japan into America had caused America to join the Allied Powers. We are very excited to have more people allied with us. I know we can’t defend for long. I hope to plunge into war soon with Germany’s army depleted by our forces. However, I am scared I will be attacked by Italy and that my army will too be depleted. My plan is to convince Italy to not attack me—I have a feeling Germany will convince them to. 

However, I’m also scared for the smaller countries, my countries that I have influence over, and us Allied Forces. I’ve noticed that they’ve been taking smaller countries, and it scares me that they are getting a higher army rating. I don’t know what to do, or if I can do much, for my forces are not able to go all the way to these other countries. 

France 1, 1942

The year is 1942, and Noway is pissed off at Germany. Germany had betrayed them by attacking them. Norway had made a huge scene and is so angry that they decided to side with us, the allies. I couldn’t help but chuckle to myself—Noway said that I was right. Of course I was! I told Norway that if they ally with Germany they have to be carful because Germany is bound to attack them so they can use them. After she yelled that I had made an announcement for people to steer clear of Germany or they too meet the same fate.

Today we went into war, and I’m actually glad we did, even though we lost some people. I feel as if we’re not taking much chances, and that Great Britain is not doing much to help me or others either. I go into war with them because I am loyal, but sometimes I want to yell at them to blaze up Germany. Maybe I’m getting ahead of myself—maybe they’re to slow, I don’t know. I just think if Germany takes another shot at Sweden, then it might just be enough to waist most of his soldier, then he’ll be using Italy. By this time this is when they Allies and I will go full force!

France 1, 1943

The year is 1943, I was mostly sick. I heard from allies what was going on. Germany has taken it to far! Most of my ally, USSR has fallen under Germany.  Why have they’ve taken up so much of the USSR?! The whole country is has just fallen do to Germany! The USRR, though they had week forces, were a great help. I’m shocked even find it out with them borrowing resources from the United States too! Luckily, Germany have taken down most of their own troops. However, I fear for my soldiers’ lives, for the lives’ of my country, and for my country itself. 

I hope to talk to America and borrow some resources for I can defend my own country. It is hard fighting a war at bedside. Hopefully, Germany won’t be as cruel as they’ve been, but if patterns show me anything—they will be. 

May I take a sec to be bitter. My countries that I’ve been controlling over has gotten me to be very angry. My resources have practically been taken, yet I could not do a thing—as suspected earlier! Why is Germany was so hardened!?

France 1, 1944

The year is 1944, and I’m feeling well, but also angry. At the time of being sick, I couldn’t fathom the USSR actually about wiped out, yet their is obvious proof that it has been. I wish to out of this war! 

I have to get resources from the United States. When I spoke to the United States, I got word that most of his resources have been going into depletion. A big navy war had broken out in the West Pacific. This has been our victory among many losses. By the end of this year, I hope to make a secret alliance with Italy so they don’t attack me, or at least convince them. I will put out propaganda. How are the other ways can I insure my country is safe without dishonoring my alliance with Great Britain. 

Lesson of the day: You can’t win war through ignorance and defending. 

The realization that most of the world has fallen under the Fascists, had really made me pissed—bitter. I am beyond angry, what can I do with my troops?! How can I save my country! How can the Allies defeat Germany and the Axis powers with the little pathetic armies of ours. Our lack of war has gotten us in trouble. Great Britain is of little help to defeat Germany, but I understand why. If I saw that the Axis Powers were coming close, I too would want to keep my troops to defeat Germany. 

France 1, 1945

The year is 1945, and I talked to Italy. I was told that he’s been pushing off attacking France. Germany has been wanting to attack all week! I am afraid, and have now accepted my fate—France is being taken over. However, I will not go down without a fight!

Germany and Italy have been attacking smaller countries, however the Axis powers are getting ready to attack. They have taken over most of my land, and I am not happy. I gave warning to Great Britain to attack Germany’s army so that they wouldn’t go into it. I was clever in doing so, because they wanted to attack them, but they didn’t have the forces to defend their country—do to me. Anyways, I am very grateful for Great Britain and America for helping me, when I had troubles defending my own country. 

The only regret I have is not fighting sooner—not attacking the Navy sooner, so that we could’ve delayed the attack on Sweden and Norway. I wish to have crushed their forces, to ask more of America—so that we may be able to have had a fighting chance. 

WW2 Journal Report: Germany

S

Orientation Day 1

Today we talked about the strength of our troops, why this simulation is different from the WW1 Simulation. Now we need more resources oil, rubber, and iron, so we got to attack places that have natural materials. That’s our first strategy is to get raw materials for the war. If we don’t have have the right number of materials, our rating will dive down. for our troops, will stay weak, the more material the stronger we are. My thought process right now is  for people I’m acquired with to get resources for our team so we have better chance of winning. The one mistake we made last simulation was that we didn’t put Germany ships around the U.S.A so France and Britain were bringing in troops and destroying us, Germany and A.H.  

Germany 2 1939 

Were starting to plan an attack on Poland. Japan is now starting to attack the Indies because of the resources. We exchanged resources so we can more advance. So far we won both wars for Nazi and Japan and we got a lot of rubber. We signed an alliance with the soviet union so we can keep peace with each other. My thoughts about the whole resource thing is pretty good, especially sharing and getting the best we can for war.  I don’t think signing alliances is all to good, unless its a bigger army, but in this case we are the strongest country but we are stuck in the middle of 3 big countries. I just hope France, Great Britain, and Soviet Union don’t attack all at once even though Germany would have the way stronger army we could suffer major losses. I just hope countries are scared to try to take over the Germany

Germany 3 1940 

Japan just took out SC China and it is like a cake wake going threw china. Japan troops have a rank of a good 9. They are basically unstoppable  At this point were taking the map and basically painting it yellow. Japan just got defeated by Serbian troops helping China. Italy tried attacking French North Africa but we didn’t put enough troops in there to overcome the troops they put in. So 2 defeats so far.  We also attacked NC China and Japan was victories. The USSR tried attacking Finland but Finland manage to somehow win surprising. People are basically really annoyed with us and people are getting erupted with their group. Someone actually left there group and came over by us. ‘Sweden’. I think Spencer is really getting in there head about how powerful we are but we really haven’t attacked anyone. 

Germany 4 1941 

We started an attack on Finland and Russia put 2500 and we put in 250. Holy cow did kill but in the long run they won us. We took them all the way down to 891 so that is really good on our side. I feel like everyone is getting irritated with our good troops and our annoying mouths. Now were attacking Poland and the other side seems to be giving up slowly. Now were going for Lithuania and everything is going out like a hot knife going threw butter. Now Japan is going threw Buma-GB and we just won. Everything is going with ease and now I want to go for U.S.A because overall they take us all in the long run. If we take them now they can’t help. Plus they got so much materials. Germany is now attacking Belgium for transportation for France. We won Belgium. We won again. We lost a thousand troops but we took out a lot of France and Great Britain Troops. The Eastern USSR attacked Japan – Manchukuo and Japan won. But they took major losses.

Germany 5 1942

So today we really made Norway mad because they allied with us and we had to attack Norway. The person who had Norway freaked out on us but oh well. She was able to get Russia to help her out but were gonna kill them one way or another. So at this point Japan took out China cause Japan troops are so strong. The U.S is gonna be big play later in this simulation because they are gonna kill Japan easily

Germany 6 1943 

Today Japan took Serbia to begin with. Now Germany and a few other allied troops with us are taking Ukraine. We took Ukraine and now were trying to move threw the USSR. Japan just now attacked the Philippines and we overtook them. The weird thing is that they are starting to get hard and our troops seem to be weaker. At this point we taking over Russia because they have zero troops so were just sweeping.

Germany 7 1944 

Today a lot of stuff went down. A lot. The allied sides are going crazy. It started out with the US taking a part of Japan then bam. Germany and Italy is making them suffer because of it. Russia really sucks, I feel bad for the guy operating it because all he did was lose, lose, lose. We are pushing, so get out of the way. Tomorrow is a big day. Like a really a big day. We takin France I think. The people from France are begging Italy not to take them because they need their objectives done. But I hope Italy gets threw that so we can take them. I wanna push straight threw them. The USA can’t really do anything because most of their U boats are sunk cause of Japan so they are really suppressed. Tomorrow sh!t is going down.

Germany 8 1945 

So today is the last day and wow. We were about to attack France but then they attacked Belgium so we had the defending bonus. Big upset but Germany still pulled threw for the victory and now we’re attack France. Today was the finish. Our map wasn’t supposed to look like the way it looks now. The whole map should be red but its yellow. If they had more time they could possibly send more of US troops and eventually take over but they couldn’t. We stalled near the end so they couldn’t take back any of France. We moped threw people and it was so easy. I’m so glad Italy stood by our side for the finish because they’re the role changer in the game. If it weren’t for them we would of lost. But we mopped floors today. We mopped floors.

WW2 Simulation Journal: Hungary, Rumania and Bulgaria 1

World War 2 Simulation

1938- Orientation
Today I talked with Kayla, Marina, Taylor C., and Anthony. We are all allies with each other. We need to fill out the forms to confirm it, but we are working together as a team. Two of my countries I can’t really do anything with because I can’t declare war or anything until 1941. But i still have Romania. We have made up the plan that Germany (Kayla) and Italy (Marina) will go over and take out France tomorrow. Once that is done I am going to send a few hundred troops into P2 of poland while Kayla and Marina take over P1. Hopefully we win that battle and and we can take over Poland there. Then we will still work together to try and take out the USSR.

1939
Today I made a secret alliance with the USSR with Romania. There is going to be a two front war on Poland. Germany is sending 5000 troops into P1 and I am sending 200 troops to P2 and the USSR is sending 800 troops into P2. We want to get rid of Poland as soon as possible because we want to take their resources. We all can use them and share them with one another. This will benefit all of us. We are victorious for P1 so far. And P2 the USSR and I as Romania were successful for taking over P2. Jaccie and I had come to agree meant that we will split the land of Poland. She gets the North half and I get the South half. We are splitting the coal and the iron that we earned. And because we have become a secret alliance, I told her about one of my objectives which was i have to take 1/3 of the land in the Ukraine.  And I told her that I didn’t want to go against her in the end. So we settled an agreement that she will give me 1/3 of the land if she gets most of the supplies for the iron and coal. We had agreed. Now i don’t have to worry about going behind her back and we can still work together to take over the places that we need and get the supplies that we need.

1940
From what it looks like today, it looks like France is going to try and attack Italy. I am going to send 200 troops from Romania to Italy. That’s going to take about 3 turns to get there. Hopefully I can make it there in time to help her on the Defensive side of the offensive side. So far i was able to move 200 over to Hungary. Also today send iron and coal over to Bulgaria and Hungary from Romania. Japan (Taylor C.) gained rubber from taking over land. She had shared the amount of rubber i need for Romania. Now all i have to get for supplies is one more of iron and one more of coal, then i can move over to the next countries to get the supplies that they need. Tomorrow I can officially use Bulgaria and Hungary finally in war if i need to.  1941 has finally come that i don’t have to hide out and have other countries help protect me.

1941
This morning I had a meeting with Germany and Italy. (Kayla and Marina) We all made a plan and agreed that us, including all three of my countries now that i can be in war, will all team up and take down Great Britain and France. Im not sure if we are going through with this plan today or not. But what i am doing for sure is I’m helping Italy attack Greece. Japan (Taylor C.) had shared rubber with the rest of my countries. I had given her oil back in return, and i gave some oil to Italy too (Marina). Im finally able to declare war with Bulgaria and Hungary, so I’m sending troops down to greece from Italy.  We were victorious and we were able to take out Greece. Now i have to go after Yugoslavia. Just found out also that the USSR need some of my land. That is one of their objectives, well mine is to keep my original territory. I don’t want to give that up, but then again i should since they gave me land too. I have a lot to work out and try to do. Well now i know not to trust the USSR. They had annexed their land back that they gave me. This definitely means war. Since we both took over Poland, I’m going to try and get the resources back that we shared. Im no longer trusting them. After I help take over Yugoslavia, France, and Great Britain. Then I’m going to try and take over the Ukraine for sure. Im going to get the territory that i need, and I’m not gonna let them stop me.

1942
Today were supposed to take over F2 and F1 of France. We need a lot of troops, hopefully we have enough. Were hoping we have enough especially now that our ratings have gone up. We need to go after F2 first, that way Great Britain doesn’t come down to help them. What were thinking is, if we go after F2 then France will want to come and attack us. We want that. If they come to attack us, then we will have more than enough troops to take them out. If this plan works, then we can move on to our next plan. My next plan is to take Yugoslavia with the help from Italy. Then going after the USSR!

1943
Im trying and taking over Yugoslavia. I hope that i make it. This is one of my last objectives that i need. If i get this i will be very happy

WW2 Simulation Journal: Japan 2

World War 2 Simulation

Japan Period 2 1938

The war starts tomorrow and my partner and I have created a decisive
plan for the whole war. We are going to be aggressive right away. We’re
sending troops down to the Indies and snatching up all that land and
resources. We especially are seeking oil because we have a tense
relationship with the US who supplies most of our oil. We know we
must become self dependent and take over countries with a lot of
natural resources. After we take the indies, we’ll do a loop of takeovers
of countries and end up taking over China. Once we have a lot of
resources and land, we’ll attack Pearl Harbor. This is our biggest
objective and we really need to hit them hard, which shouldn’t be too
difficult with our military strength. If we really push down the US military,
that will help our Allies in defeating the opposition because the US is a
huge part of the war. Since we are helping our allies in hurting the US,
they need to help us in getting land in Egypt, so the opposition can’t get
through the Suez canal which gives them access to the Pacific. I’m
pretty positive that Japan will get most of the objectives, or all. Bring on
1939!

Japan Period 2 1939

Today has been a great day, more than great I should say. The majority
of my plan has worked. I started right off with conquering much needed
resources from the Dutch Indies. I had a nail biter of a battle against
Great Britain and the Netherlands, but I came out victorious! This was a
great victory because I very much dislike the British and their leader.
This also defeated 100 alli ships in my region! The resources were very
useful to my allies and I. This will help us later in having bigger ratings
and help us take over the world. After I gained all that land, I decided I
wanted to go further. I pushed in my war slips quickly and battled in
China. I easily overtook a section in China, which was promising. When
it came to South Central China, I was defeated by the British. I will
easily take it over tomorrow because they have less than 200 troops
there. There was one minor set back to today and that was the United
States thought it was a smart move to take the oil I so desperately

need. I take this as an act of war, and when I gain the amount of
resources necessary, I will attack them with great force. After I attack
them with great force, I will have Hawaii. After I conquer Hawaii, I will
head for their mainland. If I can capture their mainland, I will hurt the
Allies greatly and help my group a lot. I am excited and a little scared
for what comes next because I know the British and US have a very
high rating. I must stay positive and keep my head aimed at my
objectives.

Japan Period 2 1940

All I can say is wow! Today didn

WW2 Simulation Journal: France 2

WW2 Simulation

France 2 1939

The year is 1939, and Europe is divided. The totalitarian regimes of Germany, Italy, and Japan have formed the Axis powers, and the USSR has formed a non aggression pact with Germany. I fear for my country and the survival of Democracy in Europe. The only Democracies left in Europe are Great Britain, Czechoslovakia, and my homeland. Hitler is not to be trusted. I feel that his aggression and ruthlessness is going to bring us into another war. Hitler has demanded Poland. We cannot continue to let Hitler get his way. It is time for war!

France 2 1940

The war has begun! I am concerned with my situation in Europe. I have two powerful axis armies to the east in Italy and Germany. I do not know what Germany and Italy’s strategies are, but if they wanted to destroy me, there is nothing I could do. These two countries simply have to many troops for me to hope to defend an axis invasion. I am hoping that the allied navies will be able to give me some relieve with troops from Great Britain, but it will take time for them to reach me. For now, it looks like Germany is focusing it’s attention on taking over Poland, and Italy hasn’t been aggression. I fear that it is just a matter of time before I am to face an attack.

France 2 1941

The USSR has joined the allies! This is great news! This will hopefully force the Germans to fight a two-front war, providing my homeland with some relief. The USSR has a large army, but they will need resources in order to be at full strength. As far as strategy, I am still waiting for the allied naval fleet to put Great Britain’s troops into France. I am going to need all of the troops I can get if I want any chance of defending my territory. I am going to do whatever I can to defend Belgium as well. Germany needs Belgium in order to get to France, and I am going to do my best to not let them get it.

France 2 1942

The United States has joined the war! An attack from the Japanese navy has given the United States a cause to fight for. They have joined the allies and mobilized, giving them more navy and troops. The awaited attack has finally come from Germany. Germany has invaded Belgium. I defended Belgium on the first attack, but then Germany sent 3,000 more! Knowing there would be no defense against this attack, I have decided to wait for Germany to attack me. I will need to defense bonus. The allied naval convey is supplying France with 1000’s of troops. This long awaited relief will be needed as I fear Germany is getting ready to invade France. If Italy decides to attack as well, I feel there will be nothing I can do.

France 2 1943

Germany and Italy and invading France, and there is nothing I can do. The relief from Great Britain will weaken the enemy, but it will not be enough to stop them. The fall of France is inevitable. All of my troops have been defeated and all my territory is taken over. There is really nothing left for me to do accept advise the leaders of the other Allied countries. The war appears as if it is swinging the Axis power’s way. Germany’s army is simply too big and strong to be stopped. Something needs to happen if the Allies can turn this around, and I think that something might be America.

France 2 1944

While the situation in Europe is still tough, the Allies faring well against the Japanese in Asia. The USSR was able to take back all of Japan’s territories in China. While my homeland is still occupied by Germany, Germany’s troops are small in numbers. I feel that my have made a big mistake by not going after the USSR first. They have gotten stronger every year and should be able to move through Europe. An allied naval attack on French North Africa has defeated the Italians and regained the French territory to the allies. The allied convey is preparing for an attack on the German-occupied France next year. It is time to regain my territory!

France 2 1945

Italy has joined the allies! The Axis power is collapsing, and Italy wants to do what it can to get something out of the war. The United States mobilization was enormous, and it is the beginning of the end for the Axis power. They now have more navy and 3000 more soldiers! The Allies are preparing to regain France by loading up the naval convey with American troops. After an invasion, the allies successfully defeated the the Germans in France. My French territory is now mine again. The USSR has regained Poland and Rumania. German troops are retreating back to Germany. The allied forces are going to do everything they can to defeat Germany. The end is nearing. The Soviet Union continues to move further into Europe. Germany is now surrounded by Allied forces. After an invasion of U.S. and USSR troops, Germany has fallen! The war has ended! The map is now covered by the Allied color, orange. The only Axis power left is Japan. While the war has costed millions of lives and enormous destruction, the Allies are happy to have finally defeated the the ruthless nazis. It is time to make lasting peace in the world.
