Germany – 3 – 1938 (Monday)
With an analysis of the map of Europe and Asia, the president Joey and I have a good idea of what we want to do right away. There are several objectives on our list, so we decided to get planning right away so we could take action when the time came. We first made sure we knew who our clear allies were, so we could exchange ideas and common objectives to work toward together, because one less ally could make the difference in a war like this. We put our ratings and resources into consideration, helping form short and long terms goals we wanted to achieve. We also tried putting ourselves in the enemy

Today we were informed on the troubles
in Europe. Germany is getting hungry for land and France and the USSR
are right in their path. We are supposed to stay neutral until we are
attacked. When attacked we will try to wipe out the Axis powers.

United States 1939

The USSR and France have been supplied
with natural resources that they need. The USSR has attacked Eastern
Poland and Germany attacked Western Poland. Germany then attacked
Eastern Poland and took it away from the USSR. The USSR didn’t like
that but hasnt joined the Allies officially, but they are leaning
towards their side. We still are in isolation and are staying out of
the war physically. However we are helping out the Allies with ideas
where to send troops and where to attack. For right now, we aren’t
going to get involved.

United States 1940

Everything is still the same with us
in the United States of America. We are still uninvolved with the war
physically. However, things aren’t looking good for the Dutch East
Indies. It seems as though they have been taken over by the Japanese.
Great Britain is sending troops over to weaken the Japanese troops
occupying the territory, but their efforts don’t do too much except
weaken the Japanese army. All I am hoping is that the Japanese
doesn’t attack the Philippines because they are no match for the
Japanese’s navy or their army.

United States 1941

This was a big year for the Allies. I
was attacked by the Japanese navy at Pearl Harbor causing me to lose
all my naval troops in the Pacific. I have announced that I am
joining the Allied forces and mobilized my troops. GB is still
pumping troops into the Dutch East Indies and is also sending some
of their own troops to defend France. We have lost some Eastern
territories to Germany including Northeast France, Belgium, Denmark
and Netherlands. China is reinforcing its Eastern territories with
its troops with the help of Great Britain’s colonial troops. They are
there for defense and attack, in case the time comes.

United States 1942

Italy has taken over all of Africa and
is moving East to take over more land. Germany and Italy keep sending
more troops into France to try and take over Southeastern part of
France and the Western shore of France. They are losing a lot of
troops by doing this because the Allies’s naval fleet keeps sending
in troops from Great Britain to knock down the amount of troops
Germany has. Germany shows no signs of attacking the USSR. On the
Eastern side of the world, Japan has lost a significant amount of
troops after China and Great Britain’s colonial troops attacked them.
The USSR attacked Manchukuo with 3500 troops but still somehow lost.
I was sure that they would’ve won but it doesn’t matter, Japan lost a
lot of troops after that battle.

United States 1943

We are losing France and Great Britain
has given up due to their loss of troops, and I’ve pretty much been
put in charge to be the savior of the Allies. I don’t like the idea
but I have no other choice but to go along with it. Italy is plowing
through all of Great Britain’s troops in the Middle East. Germany has
wiped out all of the USSR’s troops in belarus and Ukraine. The
USSR is now getting paranoid that they will completely take her over
with the help of Japan. Speaking of Japan, they have taken over all
of Asia. They only have 1 unit of troops in a few of the Chinese
territories so that will be easy to take back, but that’s only if we
can get troops over their in time. We plan on taking out the Japanese
navy next year with the help of Great Britain and the Netherlands’s

United States 1944

More and more of the USSR is being
taken over by the Axis. We are still holding strong in France;
Germany hasn’t taken it completely over. I have a lot of troops stuck
in the US because we don’t have the amount of navy to pull them out.
Italy has moved further into the Middle East and will keep moving
until they run out of troops. We successfully took out the Japanese
navy leaving about 250 troops stuck on the Japanese mainland. With
the absence of a navy, Japan wasn’t able to stop us from taking the
Dutch East Indies. As each year passes, the Axis lose more and more
troops. However, it doesn’t seem like we will have enough time to
take back everything from the Axis powers. The rest of the Allies
look to me for the answer to all the problems all the time and blame
me for not being able to get my troops out of the US, but its not my
fault. Just because I’m the only one with troops left doesn’t mean I
can do anything to stop the Axis. Time is a big problem. I just don’t
have enough time to get my troops over. If I did, I feel like we
could easily sweep out all of the Axis troops out of Europe.

United States 1945

There wasn’t much we could do on the
Eastern side except weaken Japan but this late in the game it doesn’t
do much. Japan has taken over all of Asia and some of the USSR. On
the Western side however, we are pumping 700+ troops at a time into
France; keeping out of the hands of those filthy Nazis. I was able to
spread a rumor to the Germans that Italy was going to switch to the
Ally side. It was quite a humorous thing, I’d have to say, because
Germany then attacked Italy with a few troops. Germany pushed further
into the USSR taking out most of their troops. So as this simulation
concludes, it looks like the Allies have failed to stop the Axis

Additional Notes: I feel like
this simulation was the hardest for me because all the other leaders
looked to me for help but there wasn’t much that I could do to help.
I didn’t want to control their armies because its not my job to be in
control of them. Joey even called me the totalitarian dictator for
the Allies because I was calling all the shots. I’m not saying I
didn’t like being in control, I love being in control, but its a lot
of pressure for me .

Period 4_Chelsea BonSchmit_Germany

Today is the first day for Germany. We
have set up a plan to take over Poland. We are taking them over
because they have a surplus amount of coal, 17.5. We also wanted to
cut off Norway and Sweden resources from any country. Tomorrow is
going to be a successful day.

Germany 1939

Today we had a victorious day. We took
over P1in Poland with 600 troops. We also made an alliance with
Romania. They have a very good oil resource so we figured they would
be a good alliance. Also they are by the Black Sea so we are able to
transportation resources. We also attacked Denmark with 2000 troops
and was victorious. We attacked Belgium, but they France and Germany
helped them so they were victorious and we lost all of those troops.
We also attacked the Netherlands and we won once again. I wonder if
the Allies are scared of us yet. The Netherlands don’t have very good
resources but they are by the Baltic Sea which gives us a great
advantage to take over Sweden and Norway. We also attacked Belgium
once again and this time we were victorious once again. We are
sweeping theses countries right and left. We also gave our alliance,
Italy some coal.We also sent 160 troops into Sweden by Navy, won!
Today was a successful day. We will see what tomorrow brings. Hope it
is just as successful!

Germany 1940

Today was a
successful day. We didn’t attack as much as we did yesterday. We
thought that we would say on the down low today. The other countries
need to recover from our victorious day yesterday. We are allies with
Japan and they took over the main rubber supplies. She promised us
she would send some resources over. Hopefully she keeps her promise
and sends some. If she does that we will have a dominate supplies of
resources. We took over Sweden and got their source of Iron Ore. Our
next step is to take over the USSR either through Poland or take over
Finland through Sweden. With taking over the USSR we meet our
objective and get a good resource of oil. Tomorrow shall be a
victorious day!

Germany 1941

Today we took Over
F1 in France. This was half of one of our objectives. Our next plan
is take over the USSR. We attacked North USSR. We were successful! We
also attacked Belarus which was another objective. I think today was
a good day we only lost one battle and it was Estonia. Estonia wasn’t
a really much of a loss. They had no resources we could use so it was
a useless battle. We also attacked Ukraine. With having North USSR,
Belarus, and Ukraine we have about half of the USSR. Hopefully
tomorrow we can take over the rest of USSR.

Germany 1942

Today our plan
demolished! We tried taking over North Central, Central USSR, and
Southern USSR and we lost! This is a very bad day also because Italy
went with the allies. Since they are with the allies that makes us
not have any access to the Adriatic Sea or West Mediterranean. Since
Italy joined the Allies we also lost resources like coal and iron
ore. We were suppose to help Italy keep their northern Africa safe
but we couldn’t. In all today was one of the worst days we have had.
We won no battles, lost Italy. Nothing could get any worse.

Germany 1943

We finally won
Caucasus. They have a lot of oil its unbelievable. The oil strength
for them is 11. That was a good accomplishment. We thought since we
have Caucasus we can take over Urals no problem. Nope, we lost. We
also got Finland but they have nothing useful. It was like free land
there and we took it over. Today was a very quiet day and we didn’t
do much. We figured we needed time to step back from the bad day we
had yesterday.

Germany 1944

Allies are
victorious in taking over belgium

Austria was tooken
over and we moved troops in Austria

Allies took over

Allies took over

We are getting
defeated more and more. We NEED to defend our G1 territory in
Germany. That is the only territory most important to us. The allies
were very victorious and took over so much of Germany’s territories.
They took over Belgium, Finland and they took G1. G1 was the one
territory we wanted to keep and they took it over. We kept about a
good 3,000 troops in there to keep the territory but they were
successful. They had troops from France, Great Britain, and United
States to take us over. I think we are defeated. We have a little
more than 200 troops left to defend with.

Germany 1945

We have been taken
over. We tried taking free territory that was open in USSR and they
eventually took it over. We thought we would win this war but we

WW2 Simulation Journal: USSR 4
USSR 4 1938
I have that Nazi-Soviet Pact with Germany so that might keep me safe for a couple of days. I don’t trust the leader though. I’ll see how the first couple of years go though. I’ve already talked to Great Britain and China. As soon as Germany attacks me (and we know they eventually will) we are going ally with them.
USSR 4 1939
Germany still hasn’t attacked the USSR. I think he’s going to do it next. We both conquered Poland which means I don’t have a barrier between them anymore. Japan and I talked and she is thinking that I am going to ally with her. She thinks I’m going to go against Great Britain and China. What she doesn’t know is that I told Great Britain and China what she is planning to do.
USSR 4 1940
Germany attacked my part of Poland which means I joined with the Allies. China is slowly getting taken over by Japan. I’m planning to help China by attacking them from the top and slowly working my way down. I’m also slowly moving troops down through China to attack from the front side also.
USSR 4 1941
Germany is slowly taking over the USSR on the west side. There is nothing I can really do right now, those troops aren’t very strong. I took over Manchukuo from the North and she sent troops from NC China to help. That leaves an easy window to attack NC China. She can’t do much because she doesn’t have much troops. No one can help me on the west though because there is no one there to help. At least we might have a chance now that the United States has joined the war.
USSR 4 1942
Germany reached Central, now all that I have left in the west is 400 wimpy troops in Urals. Great Britain, China, and I are going to move troops from South China to Siberia. We just want to take out the last of the Japan troops in China. I’m getting nervous about Germany attacking me and I don’t have any troops to defend my land. Here’s a new twist of events, Italy joined the allies. Great Britain, Italy, and the United States are going to move troops into France.
USSR 4 1943
Japan took over my Eastern USSR, now all I have between the two Axis Powers is Siberia and Urals. Germany stopped attacking me from that side now though. He has most of his troops in the capital. The rest are spread out throughout the other countries that he has taken over. The United States, Italy, and Great Britain are still moving troops into France. I think they are going to try and take over Germany eventually, hopefully soon. Great Britain, China, and I are moving are troops up to Siberia as fast as we can.
USSR 4 1944
Today Belgium got taken over by the Allies. They are going to attack Germany finally. If they destroy Germany this war will finally be over. There might be a few little battles, but they can’t do much. We finally got our troops into Siberia so Japan can’t take over that. I don’t know what we are planning to do. I guess we are going to try and get our original territory back. I don’t know if I will have enough time to get all of it back, but I will try and get most of it back.
USSR 4 1945
I tried to get my territory back. I got two more territories back. I’m glad I had Great Britain and the Allies to help me. We defeated Germany and no one else could really conquer the rest of us. Japan took their territory back, but that was ok. I’m just glad the war is finally over.

WW2 Simulation Journal: United States 4

WW2 Simulation
United States 4 1938
I started looking everything over. I wrote down all my objectives for my report so that i won’t forget about them this time.
I was reading over what i had to do, so that i could understand all my objectives. I read that i’m pretty much controlling what Japan does because I’m giving them 9.8 of oil i think from my resources. So i knew that i would have become alliances with the allied powers. So i went and talked to Great Britain and China, we started talking about how we have to stop Germany from taking over and getting all this land and control. So since i have to stay neutral until some country attacks me, I’m just giving them the resources that they will need and also some advice. Hopefully win! I think that we have a good plan coming along! hopefully everything will workout well! Go Allied Powers!!

United States 4 1939
Well today I’m going to try and stay neutral because I really don’t wanna get into any war haha. I’m not a very violent person, plus we are still recovering from the Great Depression. I just hope my fellow allies don’t get taken over because i have a feeling that i’ll need them in the future.
I just decided that after Japan had attacked China, i decided to take my oil away that i had given them from their recourses. So i have a feeling that i might get attacked so i’m thinking now that maybe i should mobilize because i just don’t want anything happening to me and my country. I’m still trying to help out the alliance powers. Hopefully i did the right thing,

Untied States 4 1940
Today I talked to Great Britain. They told me that they had talked to Japan and thought that they that might come and attack me. Which is fine because, I’m the United States, we will always win! But i hope we do win.
So Japan did declare war on us. But it was on our country it was just on our navy. I’m actually kind of nervous that I’m getting attack but it’s my first time getting attacked. Thats probably why I’m nervous. Plus it’s just my navy not a big part of the U.S. but I’m still worried about losing my troops and how this will affect the country. I’m just glad its not as bad as it could have been. But you never know what can happen after this. We might get taken over by the axis powers if they have enough military. Hopefully that doesn’t happen. Lets just hope for the best. We lost against the Japanese. But Go Allied Powers!

United States 4 1941
Well today hasn’t been the best, but I’m deciding to help France and send 250 of my navy from North Atlantic Ocean to the South Atlantic Ocean. But now since Germany has declared war on France and France let them have it.
As of this point I’m just helping and giving advice to my allies. Japan just attack Pearl Harbor and i just won so i feel pretty darn good about that! Now i just hope i can keep retaining my land. Thinking about just taking over Japan they are really annoying me. But i probably won’t I’m just glad that i became allies with Great Britain i don’t know what i would do without them in some situations. Today has ended a lot better than it started. Go Allied Powers!

United States 4 1942
Today I’m still helping out the allies. Italy has joined the allies so now we will hopefully most likely win the war. They becomes allies because Great Britain and China were going to attack Italy and win but they talked everything over. But the awesome part is that before Italy left the Axis they filled up all their resources from Germany and Japan.
The only problem is, is that Russia is very weak and they are losing pretty much everything the Germany but i can’t really help them that much I’m busy helping France. So as of now I’m just sending troops back and fourth from here to France. I’m pretty sure i have the most troops with the strongest army as of right now.

United States 4 1943
Today i just got mobilized. I’m just helping out my fellow allies. Deciding how to take over the Axis powers. We just moved a lot around trying to get a lot of our troops into france. We though Germany might have joined the allies but that didn’t end up working to well. So tomorrow we might plan to become allies with them, who knows. We might try and attack G1 tomorrow and hopefully win! Go Allied Powers!

United States 4 1944
Today i mobilized and i attacked Belgium and we ended up winning so know we just need to keep the territory that we have right now. I hope everything will end up as we planned or still are planning. We might plan to attack Germany tomorrow. Hopefully we will win tomorrow and keep winning! Go Allied Powers! Back up, we attacked G1 today and Won!!!! YAY! haha Go Allied Powers!!

Untied States 4 1945
Today I took over parts of germany like G3 and the Netherlands because their were not axis powers soldiers in those parts or countries. If they did, i had enough to beat them. SO! We the Allied Powers had won the war! It was a good war. Im glad that we won because now, i have accomplished all my objectives and have won the war! It was hard at first knowing if we were making the right decisions or not but we got through it. I’m glad Italy joined us because i don’t know what could have happened if they didn’t. They were a huge help for us in the end. Go Allied Powers!

Japan 4, 1938

Today, my allies and I are planning our strategies. We all figured out that we
are against the United States, so we plan on taking them out right away. I need to
find another source for oil. The United States is already threatening to cut me off
and destroying their navy will probably not help my cause. I am planning to get my
oil source from taking over Burma from Great Britain. My allies, Germany and
Italy, plan on helping me because it will increase their and my ratings. Because
Burma is part of Asia, this will also help me take over all of Asia. My ally, Italy, is
going to help conquer Asia also. All these things can take a turn for the better or
worse but we will see what awaits tomorrow.

Japan 4, 1939

Today, the war began. I knew I had to get right into completing my
objectives because I have so many. I started with trying to conquer China. I
successfully captured NC China but did not win SC China. My plan is to try to get
to Burma and try to capture it. I need to do this because the United States cut off
my oil supply. This is will then supply me with oil. I cannot afford to have my rank
lowered, I have to much to do. Next year, I plan to finally start moving my troops
onto my navy. I need to destroy the navy of the United States in the Pacific ocean,
this is one of my objectives. I am glad to say that the Axis Powers movement is first
next year. I have a lot of things to move and conquer.

I truly believed that China would have been easy to take down because they
are sort of in a civil war. I thought it would have made them weaker and easier to
conquer but they are putting up a fight. It also doesn’t help my case that Great
Britain is helping them out also. I know I have to really plan out my strategies and
not lean on Germany so much. It is understandable that they are worried more on
their own objectives and this really opens my eyes. It is also very helpful to see other
classes maps. This gives me a good idea on what else I can do. I know now that I
have to plan my own strategies and focus on my objectives. Next year is going to be
a big year for Japan.

Japan 4, 1940

Today, I spoke with the leaders of Great Britain and China. They do not
want me to attack China or Burma. What they do not understand is that those are
my objectives. For now, I will not but it will have to happen. Great Britain told me
they would give me anything so I would not attack Burma. I asked them to help me
take down the United States with me but they said they could not which is
understandable. They did tell me something that I dreaded. That the USSR is part
of Asia. I have to conquer them. This is going to be hard because the leader of the
USSR are friends and we were together in our last simulation. I already told her
that I do not need or even have to conquer the USSR, which at first was true
because I did not know Russia was part of Asia. This problem will have to wait
until later. This is not even the biggest problem, Great Britain and China
abandoned me when they said they would help me. It is war but I have to have my
priorities straight. First, I am going to have to defeat the United States as soon as
possible. Italy has told me that they are going to try to send as many navies as they
can in time. It was a mistake to attack the United States navy so soon, but what is
done is done and I do not regret this decision and I will make this work.

A good thing did come from today. I was able to conquer the Dutch East
Indies. This provided me with a lot of resources, even surplus. I am planning on
giving a few to my allies to help them out.

Tomorrow is going to be a complicated day but maybe luck will be on my

Japan 4, 1941

Japan is on the verge of falling into the allies hands. I tried to fix my mistake
of attacking the United States to soon but it did not work. Everything is falling
apart in Japan and I do not see a bright side to it. The USSR betrayed my trust but
they did have a reason to because I was planning on attacking them. NC China and
Manchukuo belong to the Allies now. My navy is significantly smaller because the
United States defeated my 200 navy by Pearl Harbor and I was ready to win the
navy battle by the Philippines but Great Britain decided to defend and help the
United States there and I lost the battle. I am completely surrounded by enemies
and I see no help coming soon. My only hope is Italy but it will take too long for
them to arrive but it will be no use, the Allies have gotten stronger. I see the falling of
Japan very near by. I guess I deserve it because I was testing with war germs. I plan
on taking what ever I can without shaking up the Allies. I do not fear them, but I do
feel not having any of Japan in the end.

I can do nothing because if I try to attack the allies, USSR will help them. If I
attack the United States, Great Britain will help them, and if I attack the USSR, the
allies will help them. I am trapped in an all around front war. I have nowhere to
turn. I will fight for Japan and I will fight trying.

Japan 4, 1942

Japan will not last. It is not gone but it is going slowly. Again China and the USSR are working
together to take me over. I have lost a lot of what I had of China. I lost SE China and SC China. I fear
that I will lose French Indo China because I have resources on it. My ally, Italy, has gone to the Allies and
has left Germany and I alone as Axis. We both know we are doomed but we continue to fight on. I know
that I can trust no one. Not the USSR, not China, not Great Britain, and now not even Italy. I need to
keep on staying strong. I see the map and it gives me hope. I believe that I might be able to take parts of
China and the USSR if Great Britain does not get in the way.

I do fear of losing everything but I do not want to lose anything. I will stay strong and I will defend
my country. I plan on destroying the USSR’s navy and slowly take back whats mine starting at Korea.

The Japanese empire will not go down without a fight.

Japan 4, 1943

Japan is staying low today. I still don’t know the moves of my opponents but I guess I will see.
French Indo China was under attack by the USSR and China but Japan was able to fight them off. But
Great Britain who took the chance and saw that Japan was weakened decided to help the USSR and
successfully took over French Indo China. This is very depressing but but hopefully the plan I am still
working up works. All I have left is the island of Japan and the Dutch East Indies. I am sure that the
Dutch East Indies are not far from being taken over. So I plan for right now, I plan to take out the
USSR’s only navy on the Pacific. I know it won’t do anything but anger them but it is just a precaution. I
actually am going to discard my last plan and I attacked Eastern USSR and successfully took them over.
I knew this would work because no one was there and no one was around. I hope this will at least give
me a chance at the extra credit because I did get the Eastern USSR at least for a moment. I plan on
moving them out and make the USSR and China to chase me around, hopefully make them lose troops
during this. They’re doing as I hoped, Great Britain, China, and the USSR are moving their troops
Northward as I expected. This will give me the chance to sneak in from the South and continue the chase.

Japan 4, 1944

I do not know what I am going to do today. It will take me awhile to move
but I am really just moving as I go. It will take two moves to get to Burma but I will
not be able to really take anything over but I might make them lose troops so I will
try it. I am going to attack SE China with only 6 troops hoping that they do not
hear how many I put in there and send in a lot. I want them to move and attack me
to east so I can turn around and attack from the west. Actually, I plan to just stall
until next year. Then I will go all out and do my best. I noticed that Great Britain,
China, and the USSR were able to move up to Siberia. I am very confused now. I do
not know if they are going to attack me or attack Germany. Next year is our last

Japan 4, 1945

I did not expect the United States to help out China. They did and I did not
win the war in SE China because I did not think they would help. I am just trying
to hold as as long as I can but I do not know if Japan is going to stand for much
longer .

The Allies went against my poor ally Germany. Even though that was bad
news for him, it is a relief for Japan. This gave me a chance to move and attack. The
USSR in Manchukuo tried to attack me in the Eastern USSR. I won that battle.
That meant that no one was close enough to stop me from conquering and taking
back everything. This did not happen though because we did not have enough
moves. I was able to take back Manchukuo and its resources, Korea and its
resources, and NE China and its resources. I did plan to do more but time ran out.
Even though I did not conquer all of Asia, or even China, I did get further than I
expected. The war was not a failure for Japan but it was not a success for us either.

WW2 Simulation Journal: Italy 4

Period 4  Italy
Italy 4, 1938
–Today was a big day. I talked with my allies about getting the resources that I
need. Germany is helping me out with my lack of coal. This will improve my rating.
My alliances and I are going to do whatever we can to make sure all of us have what
we need. Our alliances are strong. We plan on moving in fast to get the resources. I
plan on staying true to my alliances, unless we start to struggle. Germany is pretty
strong and willing to help me out so right now the best thing for my country is to
stay allied. We are going to start out strong and end up very victorious.

Italy 4, 1939

–Today nothing happened. I didn’t start any wars because nothing was needed.
Germany transferred some of their coal over to me since I was very low on that
supply. Tomorrow I plan on taking French North Africa. I need a lot of resources
and that have a few. My strategy right now is to get everything I need to make my
ratings go up. Of course I am going to try to work with my allies as well. The Axis
powers are still very strong and we are accomplishing many group goals. So today
was a very good day.

Italy 4, 1940

–Today I took over Egypt. It is just one step closer to getting to Iraq. I need to
conquer them to gain more oil. My strategy right now is to take over everything in
my way. Today Romania gave me enough oil to fulfill my need and Japan is
thinking about giving me rubber. Once I gain that oil, I will have all my needed
resources. Germany, Japan, and I are still working together to gain as much land as
possible. I am still staying true to my alliance because Germany is still powerful. I
have thought about switching if I need to but I will still help out japan if I do.

Italy 4, 1941

–Today I took over Palestine. Great Britain and France started to move their Navy
down to where mine is, I have a feeling they are going to try to take the suez canal
back. My strategy is to fight as much as I can but I know that if they go through
with it, I won’t survive. My strategy if I lose will then be to take out France.
Germany and I discussed getting payback if they took out my navy. But if I win I

am still going to try to take over everything in my way up to Iraq. I was able to get
all of my rubber from Japan today to the only thing I need is iron. I don’t know
how to get it, and if they get my navy I won’t be able to get it. My strategy for the
last few days has been to get all the resources I needed for my country and I have
been able to get all but one. Besides the fact that my navy may get taken out
tomorrow, I think I have been very successful and have helped out my people by
getting them our needed resources.

Italy 4, 1942

–Today I changed to the allies. Germany made the mistake of moving all of their
troops to one side, the side away from Italy. The allies were going to take up that
mistake and start wars. They would’ve had to go through me to get all of the
Germany’s land. That was something I wasn’t willing to risk. Along with them
moving all to one side, the USSR and USA joined the war. I knew that the USA got
a lot of troops and their power grew everyday. That was another sign Germany was
getting helpless. They made the mistake to move. After I joined the allies, my
strategy changed. Its now to help take out the Axis powers take out Germany. We
moved all of our navies over to the USA to get their army over to France and
tomorrow we are going to start more war.

Italy 4, 1943

Today nothing happened. Our strategy is to move as many US troops so we can
take out Germany. We moved things around to make it as easy as possible. My
personal strategy is to keep up with the Allies. We need to take Germany out. I
know that we are going to move tomorrow and I hope we win. I have been helping
out the allies as much as possible.

Italy 4, 1944

–Today we plan on taking out G1. We are going to move all of my troops from Italy
and all of the troops from F1 to takeout G1. He doesn’t have a lot of troops in the
surrounding areas so we should be victorious. Then we are going to continue
moving in. Germany only has 200 troops left so it will be pretty easy. We are all
working together to take down Germany.

Italy 4, 1945

Today is the last day. We started war with Germany and took over a lot of land. We
got our overall goal complete: beat the axis powers. I attempted to get my last few
objectives done but we didn’t have a turn before the end of class. Germany lost all of
its troops so it was easy for us to take over land. Germany tried to fight back but
lost. Our strategy was to just take over as much land as possible and we made a lot

of progress today. The war is over and the allies won. The best decision I made was
to join them, I wish I did it sooner.

WW2 Simulation Journal: France 4
France 1, 1938
Today is the first day of the war. I didn’t get involved with anything because  it is still early in the game. Im planning how I am going to obtain my objectives. I found where all my troops where so that if someone came into my territory I could easily move some troops into the area that was being attacked. I plan to honor my alliance with Great Britain, Poland and Belgium. I will defend them as much as I can but not to the point where I lose all my troops.

France 2, 1939
Today I attempted to protect Belgium. The first time we were successful with the help of Great Britain. The second time we weren’t so lucky they took over the Netherlands and then sent more troops into Belgium I really considered to send some troops into Belgium but then I talked to my allies and then realized that it wasn’t worth losing a lot of my troops. I had to think about my country because if  I lose a lot of troops then I won’t have enough troops to defend my land if another country tries to take me over.

France 3, 1940
Today I don’t have any objectives to obtain except being loyal to my ally Great Britain and backing them up if they need any assistance. The United States asked me to make a public alliance with them. I did, their reasoning was that they became allies with Great Britain and since I am also an ally with Great Britain then I figured if we join together than we will be unstoppable.

France 4, 1941
Today I discussed with the allies what to do with my navy. They said that the axis powers were going to go down and go through the Suez canal to get to get down towards India to take over. So I moved my navy with 121 troops on it from the South Atlantic Sea down to the West Mediterranean sea. On our second turn I moved my navy down another sea zone to The Eastern Mediterranean Sea.

France 5, 1942
Today italy join the Allies and left Germany to tumble down by itself. I sent 1500 troops from F2 into F1 and 250 troops into F1 as well and we were victorious! We regained the territory in F1! I also moved both of my navys that I put in the East Mediterranean sea into the West Mediterranean sea zone.

France 6, 1943
I was not here that day but the Allies made the decision to move my navy and some of my troops around.

France 7, 1944
The last few days are getting really intense. Germany just took over Poland’s navy and the USSR’s navy. I just sent 1200 troops in to Belgium from F1 and the US sent 1800 troops into Belgium as well. Germany only has 500 troops in Belgium so the allies were victorious. Then we loaded some troops from Great Britain and took them into Belgium. Then move 417 troops of France’s from F2 into F1. I sent 1418 troops from Belgium into germany and my 417 troops from F1 into G1 as well. Germany is starting to get taken out quickly by the Allies.

France 8, 1945
Today is the final day of the war. The Japan was trying to regain its territory but they were not victorious because the US had sent some troops into SE China and came out victorious so SE China is still a part of the Allies. I am sending my 535 troops from Germany into Denmark. Since Germany did not have any troops in Denmark the Allies took Denmark over. Time is crunched, we have less than 10 minutes left until the end of the war. It’s looking really good for the Allies. Germany has lost all of their troops.

WW2 Simulation Journal: Hungary, Rumania and Bulgaria 4

WW2 Simulation
Rumania 4 1938
Here could be the start of something great. Tomorrow I will make an alliance with Germany. I need to acquire more natural resources and Germany will help me accomplish that. I want to gain help to be able to be strong enough to attack the Ukraine. They have plenty of troops to back them up, so I need to really think ahead before pursuing this.

Bulgaria 4 1938
Bulgaria is not in a good situation. We have been struggling with this depression and are not entering this war with good resources. I will serve as a support for the Axis powers and help them defend their territory. My military is weak and I have no natural resources, so attacking on my own would be like suicide which is not what I want.

Hungary 4 1938
Right now I must sit back and stay uninvolved. I have the support of Germany and Italy and will help them as long as it is worth it. I will need their resources to be able to try and take over Yugoslavia and be able to defend myself.

Rumania 4 1939
Today the action started. As of now, it doesn’t seem that I am in any danger as of yet. I became alliances with Germany and I think they can help me with future plans. I would like them to move some of their troops into Rumania so I can pursue and attack on some of the USSR territory. I know that they have a lot of troops to back them up, which is making me hold back some.

Bulgaria 4 1939
Right now I am at a still as I am to remain neutral. Today the axis powers did take some war action and did win part of Poland. I hope to see the Axis continue on a successful streak and help them as much as I can. I need to acquire some natural resources to increase my strength.

Hungary 4 1939
As I watch the war happen, I continue to think of my own future plans. Right now I feel that taking Yugoslavia will not be a difficult task, but I cannot act on anything for another two years and much can change in that time. As I plan to help my allied countries, I hope they will do the same for me and so I have a chance of coming out victorious.

Rumania 4 1940
For the axis powers it was a good day. Some action was taken and did gain some territory, not huge amounts but it was progress. I supplied Italy and Germany will some oil and Italy said they would back me up once they gain more. I found out that the USSR does not have a very high rating, and thats what was preventing me from pursuing an attack. Tomorrow I will scope things out and possibly take some action.

Bulgaria 4 1940
Today was really just a day to see what action people are taking and where I might be of use. Tomorrow I can break neutrality and ally with axis powers, so I can start to help them as needed. I am thinking that Hungary could use my help and think that would be a good way to go.

Hungary 4 1940
My time is coming, it is calling my name. Tomorrow I can become involved and want to make my attack on Yugoslavia. I plan to use some of Bulgaria’s troops to be successful, and then if I come out victorious I want to see what I can do to take Greece as well. Germany is ready for me to be active and would help be take over Yugoslavia if need be. Tomorrow could be a determining day of what the future holds.

Rumania 4 1941
The axis powers have plans, but I fear we are about to crash. I can tell Japan has got a plan and is determined, and so are Italy and Germany, but it doesn’t mean it will end well. Tomorrow I believe the plans are to take some action on the Ukraine/USSR. As I am not strong enough to defeat them on my own I will help Germany do so if need be. If the Axis are victorious I would like to make an agreement and have the Ukraine signed over too me. I finished off the troops in Yugoslavia

Bulgaria 4 1941
My first step today was creating an alliance with the axis powers. I attempted to help Hungary with an attack, but did not send enough troops. As for future plans, I will help my allies with attacking in the USSR, or maybe help Rumania with an attack Greece to win over that territory.

Hungary 4 1941
Today was a good attempt at an attack, but I came just a little short. With my troops all used, I had Rumania attack Yugoslavia again with more than enough troops and came out with a win. Since I used up my troops I can’t help my allies and I am pretty much out of the game. My territory is well surrounded by Axis power’s territory, so it should be well defended at least for a while.

Rumania 4 1942
Italy has left the Axis powers and joined the Allies. She left her territory with few troops, so I was thinking of attacking, but she has over 2000 in Austria and I could be quickly taken out. Before I risk that I am going to move my troops into the Ukraine to be sure I acquire it before I chance getting taken out.

Bulgaria 4 1942
My plans to attack Greece, or help attack, are pretty much cancelled. I may move my troops into Yugoslavia and possibly attack Italy or Greece. I am going to wait and see what Italy does in the next couple years to see if they are going to be moving their troops out of Austria. If Rumania decides to come back and attack on Italy I will be right there to help.

Hungary 4 1942
With Italy have left the Axis and Germany slowing going down the drain, even if I were able to help, it wouldn’t be worth it. Japan is trying to fight, but she is has been pretty well taken over and doesn’t have many troops left. Sadly I don’t feel there is much hope for the Axis to come out of this on top.

Rumania 4 1943
I have made it to the USSR and have acquired the Ukraine. I have left a few troops in the Ukraine and am heading back towards Italy. With the help of Germany we could be successful with taking Italy, but since she will probably want to retain her original territory I would guess she would counter attack with a lot of the troops in Austria. Sometimes you have to take a chance, and if we fail at least we tried.

Bulgaria 4 1943
As time ran out I did not get a chance to move my troops. I think I will attack on Greece with maybe a little help from Rumania. It’s not an important attack, but every little bit helps. Thinking about it more, I may still wait a  year before doing so because it may not be worth wasting my troops on that if the Axis really goes down the drain.

Hungary 4 1943
I’m really not sure where things are going at this point. It didn’t seem that the Allies took much action today and I haven’t heard of any big plans going on. I know that the Axis are stuck with what to do. We are pretty much at the point where you have to take a chance or just give up. If anything I feel that the Allies have a lot of plans for the last day to totally just take us out and win the war.

Rumania 4 1944
I risked myself to help Germany and lost basically all my troops. I attack on Italy knowing that Italy could send their troops from Austria and take me out, which they did. I was not sure I really wanted to do this, but this helped Germany by distracting/taking out part of Italy’s troops. It made the troops move away from German land and took out troops that could have attacked Germany and really killed the Axis. Protecting Germany as much as I could is all I can do to help and I did that, so I feel I did the right thing.

Bulgaria 4 1944
Along with Rumania, I also sent troops to attack Italy. I didn’t do a lot of damage, but it helped take out more troops, which was part of the goal. Although I am taken out, I think I have a decent chance of still retaining my territory. I took one for the team and with time running out I needed to make some effort to help and feel good that I did so.

Hungary 4 1944
I think today was a preview of what tomorrow holds. Germany had their original territory taken out and the Allies have plenty of troops left. I’m guessing they will just continue on from there and take out a bunch of Axis territory. I also heard that the USSR is going to attack Japan and other land on the Europe map. We know what is coming for us, but hopefully they don’t get too many moves so they wouldn’t be able to take too much of our territory. We are not going to win, but I feel that we can keep from a massive loss.

Rumania 4 1945
Italy took back Austria and Yugoslavia. Not a big surprise, but I guess I didn’t think through what they might do. They were not able to make it to Rumania, so I was to keep my territory. The Axis made some last ditch efforts and they didn’t do much, but we took over some land and the rest was pretty much stalling. Germany was left with very little to no troops and we didn’t have many choices. All is said and done and we gave a good run.

Bulgaria 4 1945
Thankfully Italy didn’t have anymore turns otherwise they would have taken me over. Japan did take over some territory at the end and I believe they did take back Asia, or at least a good part of it. We had some plans back fire, but we were greatly out numbered by the end and did our best.

Hungary 4 1945
I did not expect Italy’s attack. I lost my original territory, but I didn’t have anything to fight back with and I kept it until the last day. Hindsight is a great thing, but I don’t think there is much I would change. The Allies were to win the war and we didn’t do too bad up until the last few years. I was allied with Italy, but my other countries attacked on them, so I had it coming. My prediction was right, yesterday was only a preview and today they were attacking left and right.

WW2 Simulation Journal: Poland and The Netherlands 4

WW2 Simulation

Poland and Netherlands and Dutch El  4th 1938
Today was the start of the World War 2. Today I thought about how I am going to get more resources that I need. I also talked to people that are on my side and see if they would help me out if I need there help. I am hoping the Soviet Union will help me out. I also just thought about how I would fight people that come after me and think about what there next step would be.

Poland and Netherlands and Dutch El  4th 1939
Today we didn’t get on a good start. Poland and the Netherlands both got taken over.  Germany took over my Netherlands. USSR took over p2 of Poland and Germany took over the rest. I lost everything and even including my navy. The only thing I have left is the Dutch El Netherlands. Looks like from here my plans didn’t go as plan.

Poland and Netherlands and Dutch El  4th 1940
Today is the first day I joined with the Allies because both of my countries got taken over. The first war of the day is Great Britain is trying to attack Norway, Germany thought they should help Norway out and Germany and Norway were victories. Finland went to war with Sweden and Finland won. Today was a good day but we lost some good soldiers and we hope tomorrow is a batter day. Before we ended the day we did move people around and navy so that we would be ready the next day to go to war again.

Poland and Netherlands and Dutch El  4th 1941
Today Japan started right away and tried to attack the United States navy but Japan had lost. Japan tried one more time and they lost again because they want to take over Pearl Harbor but they can’t because United States keep beating them. Germany attacked France in F1 and Germany was victories. Germany took over Belarus and Ukraine of the USSR. Bulgaria attacked Yugoslavia and Yugoslavia won with some help from other people that was on his side. Germany is trying to take over the USSR but I don’t think it is going to happen. After war today we thought about what to do next for tomorrow war and we are going to take out all the Axis navy and take them over.

Poland and Netherlands and Dutch El  4th 1942
Today italy joined with the allies. The allies attacked France in F1 to get back what we lost and we got it back. Great Britain attacked Sweden and we got it back. Today was a good day at war because we took over things that we lost and got them back. We did some movement of our troops to get ready for the next day so we can take more land over.

Poland and Netherlands and Dutch El  4th 1943
The start of the war today Germany took Finland back over.  After the war was over the allies did a lot of moment to get ready for the next moves that we wanted to do and that is to take back everything we lost and gain more countries.  We took back chine of what Japan took and we took Japan over too. We also took out Japans boats. To end the year of what we did we moved troops to get ready for the next year.

Poland and Netherlands and Dutch El  4th 1944
The start of the war was Germany took out Poland navy. My navy wasn’t that good so I couldn’t put up a fight for anything. At this point germany was just on a roll and started taking out other countries navy. The USSR navy was taken out and the ranking for them wasn’t that good either. The United States helped us out a lot because she got more and more troops every year. So by this time France and United States took back Belgium. We did some moving after we got done with war because we had one more year left to get everything back that we needed to get back. By this time everything was taken for a turn.

Poland and Netherlands and Dutch El  4th 1945
Today is the last year of war and we as allies are going to hit it hard and take back everything that we want to take back.  To start it off Germany didn’t have much of a army left because they all died from all the other wars. We got to get back at Germany and take over some of what the axis had for land. At the end of war the allies won because the axis side had nothing left. It was a great 8 years of war and after the allies having to put up with a good war we sure did have a good come back at the end.
