WW1 Lesson Plan Journal: Great Britain Foreign Minister 2

Great Britain 2 1913
Today Austria Hungry accused a group of Serbians of assassinating that Arch Duke of Austria Hungry. Both countries released statements taking a stance on the attack. The Serbian government denied any knowledge of or involvement in the attack. Austria Hungry  stated that these acts of violence would not be tolerated. Austria Hungry, Germany, and the Ottoman Empire mobilized as a result of the attack. This caused Serbia, Russia, France, Great Britain, and the United States to also mobilize. Tensions are running high and everyone is one edge. Great Britain is anticipating an attack on Serbia very soon. We fear that we will not be able to get there in time to help our Allie. Russia also shares our fear of an attack, but will not be able to get troops to Serbia any sooner that we will. We have already discussed with Serbia the possibility of an attack, and they are fully aware that if they get attacked there will be no help coming to them.

Great Britain 2 1914
Today Austria Hungry declared war on Serbia. Just as we feared we could not get troops there in time to help them and they were conquered by the Central Powers. We sent troops into Mediterranean Sea Zone 1 and began making our way towards the Ottoman empire. Russia attacked the Ottoman Empire in 02 and won the battle. We are hoping that soon with the help of Russia we will be able to attack 01 and secure the Dardanelles straight. Italy signed a secret alliance with the Allies but is remaining neutral for now. We also attacked Germany’s navy in the North Sea Zone and came out victorious. They have a few U boats spread out in different parts of the ocean but we don’t feel that those are much of a threat to us. We now have no competition with any other navies so Great Britain rules the sea.

Great Britain 2 1915
Today we moved our troops to Mediterranean Sea Zone 2 and with the help of Russia attacked the Ottoman Empire in 01. None of the Central Powers were able to help the Ottoman Empire and they were conquered by the Allies. This secured the Dardanelles straight and helped Great Britain complete an objective. Russia and Great Britain took most of our troops from 01 and attacked Bulgaria defeating the central powers which had previously taken control of Bulgaria. Not much was is being declared yet, and it is mostly smaller countries that are being attacked. Russia has been attacked some, but that is not worrying us yet. Great Britain fears that the war is going to get much worse and that no country will be able to remain neutral. Italy should soon be officially joining the Allied powers and we are hoping to get portugal on our side.

Great Britain 2 1916
Today Italy went public with is alliance to the Allies. The United States and Belgium also made an alliance with the Allies, which did not go over to well with the Central Powers. Great Britain had the task of protecting Belgium’s neutrality but with the war heating up it’s almost impossible to remain neutral. We needed Belgium to move our troops through because they share a border with Germany and the is the fastest way to get our troops in. Great Britain, France, United States, Japan, and Belgium are all preparing to attack Germany. All of the countries with available navies are sending them to both Great Britain and the United States to pick up troops. We are then sending those troops into Belgium and France. With the strong build up of troops I think we may actually have a chance at defeating Germany.

Great Britain 2 1917
Today Italy attack a section on Germany with all of its troops along with some help from France. Germany sent reinforcements and were about to defeat the Allied attack. Italy was left open and vulnerable and we were all very afraid that it would be conquered. The central Powers must have had other plans because the left Italy alone. Great Britain, France, and Belgium all attacked Germany in 01. Germany’s army is very strong and they were able to defeat us. We are not concerned about this loss because it has greatly weakened Germany’s army and the Allies still have plenty of reinforcements coming from Great Britain and the United States. Portugal also joined with the Allies today so we can also pull troops from there if need be. The war is beginning to come to a close but we still can not count Germany out. The have proved to be very strong and driven, and are doing very well with what little resources they have left. Russia is planning to soon attack Austria Hungry in hopes of weakening the Central Powers even further.

Great Britain 2 1918
Today is the last day of the war and everyone is preparing their final battle plans in hopes of winning. Russia went through with the attack on Austria Hungry, but Germany sent reinforcements and Russia was defeated by the Central Powers. The United States, Great Britain, and France also made another attack on Germany. Again we were unsuccessful in beating them, but there troops are down in the single digits and I believe if we can just get one more attack in they will be defeated. Russia was left vulnerable when it lost its battle to Austria Hungry and now a section of Russia has been attacked by Austria Hungry and the Ottoman Empire. Russia did not hold enough troops back and a section of their land has been conquered. Germany and Austria Hungry launched one final attack on Bulgaria and the Allied powers did not have enough time to send help, so it has once again been taken over by the Central Powers. The war has ended and it is very hard to tell who the victor is. The Allied Powers are still standing pretty strong so I feel that this war belongs to us.

Cold War Simulation

Orientation Day

My plan is just to hold on to my country and make sure it doesn’t get bombed. I want to kinda stay neutral because I don’t want to lose my country. I also i’m gonna do whatever the United States tells me to do. The reason why is because I have to stay stand by them. I’m gonna make sure I do all of my objectives that I have to do. I have been trying to help all my allies out but with nuclear war it’s hard to do. 

Italy, 1, Day 1

So what we had planned was to just not do nuclear war just yet. We wanted to make sure that we had a good strategy planned out first before we did anything. We were gonna try and take out the USSR. The reasons why is because they had lots of missiles. We wanted to take all of the missiles out so we didn’t have to worry about them bombing us. But things didn’t turn out that way yesterday. They went to Defcon 1 and that took a turn for the worst. We also had found out that Cuba had missiles and they were gonna launch them at the United States. So our plan had to change it what we did. We ended up taking out Cuba because we didn’t want anything to happen to United State. The reason why is because they had all the missiles and bombs for us. We had lost about 3 countries and that put a hardship on us. The reason why is because they were important countries to us. 

Itayl 1, Day 2

So far we haven’t done much today. We are trying to find a way to take over some countries. But the problem is trying to find out how we are gonna do it. We can’t bomb anyone right now because we just can’t right now. So i’m moving my tanking into another countries because we need them to move. I’m moving my tanks into Norway and that is going to take sometime. It’s getting hard for us to decide where to move our tanks and how it’s gonna work. So China is gonna decide on allying with NATO.  We are now trying to decide on how to take over the USSR. We don’t want them to win. We also have missiles that are ready for launch. So that means that if they bomb us we have missiles ready to firer back. We decide to move my tanks and then bomb Yugoslavia because we don’t want them to take me over. So this just took a turn for the worst. The United States just got bombed really bad. This isn’t good at all. We don’t know what to do from here. Well we destroyed the whole world this is sad.So Nato lost the war.

Orientation (Canada)

We went over the rules of the simulation and what we have to do. My only two objectives is to help defend my NATO land and to make peace through out the world. Right away we had went out to the hall way and make a plan on what we were going to do. We were going to go easy and work our way up. I was trying to talk our group into not going all in at first, to work our way up there, and it started to work, but then the Soviets had to dive in right away. There went my trying to create peace. 

Canada 1 Day 1 

We talked about as a whole how and when we were going to bomb and take out the Soviets. I agreed that we shouldn’t have gone to Defcon 1 right away. I have to try and make peace during all this. We had come to an agreement that we would gradually bring the Defcon numbers down. We were going to make it a 3 but we went to a 4. Right away the Soviets had moved down to a 1 and had taken out West Germany. Then everyone had said to move us down to Defcon 1. Once we had done that we had talked out in the hall way and made some plans. I don’t have any missiles or anything, but I can defend and give advise. The Soviets had also gotten a hold of Great Britain. But we took out Cube, the Moscow area and got rid of those tanks, and the other number of tanks on the far side of them too. 

Canada 1  Day 2

Right away the Soviets had sent their tanks over to Turkey, both sides are also on Defcon 1. Kayla (United States) had sent the missiles from Turkey and send them to Poland and West Germany. Unites States had turned on their Launch on Warning. There is no chance in me trying to create peace now. We are at a stand off point, where if the Soviets attack the NATO’s launch their nooks. Either way right now, neither side will win. The Soviet’s had let the four horseman ride. And we had launched what we had. There were no winners in the end.

Cold War Simulation

France 1 Day 1

I am one of the countries with N.A.T.O., but I want to stand independent. I know that if I stand independent that I will be taken over, or wiped out immediately. I know that if the United States were in a crisis, I will have to help them, and that would mean that my independence would be pushed aside because N.A.T.O. is a consensus voting system would be in place by the United States. I think that the consensus voting system is a good thing, but also a bad thing because that would mean everyone will have a say in what another country needs, or wants to do, and that means that will take a lot of time to finally decide what to do. I don

Cold War Simulation Lesson Plan Journal: East Germany

Cold War Simulation

East Germany, 1, Orientation: I have joined the Warsaw Pact under the command of the Soviet Union. I hold much hope in our leader to expand. I hope to only reach DEFCON 2 and not go further. I plan to follow our leader and help with my tanks as much as possible before there can be a nuclear war.

East Germany, 1, Day 1: Today our Soviet Leader has stated that he will close off Berlin. He told us that we were going to move west in Europe. I feel that the tension is high and fear that they don’t respond to badly to our actions. That hope was short lived because they have moved many of their troops to West Germany. Both NATO and Warsaw Pact have moved to DEFCON 4. Our leader have probably gone crazy because he as just sent ” Stride Package Bravo” and destroyed West Germany with a lot of their troops. In retaliation NATO has done the same and deployed bombers and submarines as well. Cuba, Moscow, and many other countries have been destroyed, I fear we will all die and it will be the end. 

East Germany, 1, Day 2: Our leader of Warsaw Pact attacked Turkey with the tanks in that are. Unfortunately they were abel to retaliate and completely wipe out my country of East Germany. I fear that the horrible death is finally coming to an end because both us and NATO have activated the “Launch and Warning”.  I thought that this cold war would never get to this. I did not expect my my country to be hit. Now Warsaw Pact and NATO are at a stand off. Italy has been blocked off and now our leader had ordered the “Let The Horsemen Ride”. This is the end and now my hope is gone. I wish that we never had let this happen.

Cold War Simulation Student Journal: United States

HistorySimulation.com

Well today we discussed how bombs would work, and watched a video. I started forming several ideas, and I think the safest way would just to bomb Russia before they can bomb us. Its going to be hard to get so many people to agree with the plan, especially Canada because they need to keep peace. I don’t want to let the four horseman ride because then it isn’t a strategic game you can win, its just mindless bombing.  Id prefer to make a wall of radiation right away so they can’t get through to my NATO allies. 

per 1 Day one 

Today we couldn’t agree on bombing Russia, and I was quite annoyed. I wish everyone would focus, so we could get things done easier. We lost Great Britain, West Germany, and France today because people didn’t go along with the plan and just bombed. Tomorrow I hope to take down Russia, or at least make them vulnerable. I didn’t trust France from the beginning because she disagreed with the plans we made so much. I trust China because Cayla, who has been working as my spy, said she would ally with us tomorrow. I hope this doesn’t turn out to an all out bomb fest, but I guess we will have to see how Russia feels.

per 1 Day two 

Today it turned into a bomb fest. We were doing good for the most part strategically because when we put on the launch on warning, making it so Russia had to attack with something more then missiles. Then, we moved tanks so we could directly attack Russia, hoping to gain control of their missiles before they did something stupid like bombing us when they know they have no chance. I don’t want to bomb the world, because then whats the point of winning? China did ally with us, which really helped us. We needed to use Italy tanks, so I bombed Yugoslavia and Austria so they could move. I know it was vicious, but it had to be done to try to save more. Then of course Russia got scared, and mindlessly bombed us, which ended everything.

Cold War Simulation Lesson Plan: Hungary

Cold War Simulation

Hungary 1 Orientation: My objectives are to basically stay out of the way of my leader and to not use my military willingly. I’m not going to have much to journal since I’m not really running anything, but I think this is going to get interesting. This isn’t even supposed to be a war, but with my class, we’ll probably end up destroying everything and letting the power of the fact that we have bombs and real weapons to use, get in our heads. All I want to do is follow the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact, and hopefully we won’t have a problem in our group.

Hungary 1 Day 1: Well, as I’m sitting here watching everything go down, there’s not much I can really do but let the Soviet Union use my land. Already we’ve launched a weapon which has made everything interesting. Also, NATO seems to want to counter attack quickly. Even as Jackie’s country died away, NATO is getting furious and want to attack the Soviet Union personally. I think that we’re ready for it because all of us think that they can’t do much damage. Maybe we’re too full of ourselves and our strategies. But, we’ll see

WW2 Simulation Journal: Soviet Union 1

HistorySimulation.com

USSR 1 1938: My goal is to stay neutral as much as possible. I need to be able to conquer my goals without having to fight Germany. If I would get attacked by either the Allies or Axis powers then I could easy loose my land. I am going to side with the Axis in secrete for now they don’t attack. Right now my goals are simple and if I can avoid fighting in my plans that will be great. I know that I would have to attack Finland and Poland but I still need to do that soon or my chance might fade away.

USSR 1 1939: Of course taking out Poland would be our first choice. The USSR needs the oil. Negations are stressful and when they were done we were allies with Rumania and Germany. Taking down Poland was a little to easy and they were wiped out. The only other thing we did was transfer the resources in Poland to Romania. In our agreement Poland is split in half and because we get more resources we plan on giving some to Germany once we can get some more to sustain ourselves. Our next move was to anxious Estonia, Lithuania, and Latvia. Once we done that I felt we accomplished much, but I still felt that we didn’t have much power in the Baltic Sea so we can try to take Finland.

USSR 1 1940: Staying out of the war would be the best choice for now. Let the other powers fight and break down to nothing. My goal to take down Finland was delayed due to the USSR’s rating not being enough. Even though I lost, my goal is still there and I still have my land. Rumania and I had an agreement that we got the resources from Poland in exchange they got Bessarabia in their control. Even though they have it now we will get it back. The only thing I’m worried about is them attacking us.

USSR1 1941: Annexing Bessarabia from Rumania right after I gave it to them in exchange for resources was a sly plan but it helped complete my objective. I have little fear that Rumania would try to take it back. There is also the fact that Germany is busy with France and Great Britain. As for right now we are still neutral and I’m baking on staying like this to keep the pressure off so I can take Finland before Great Britain decides to move to Norway and then east which could foil my plans.

USSR 1 1942: This year was early simple. As the USSR we finely got Finland due to their weakened troops form our loss of the battle in 1940. I am so proud that no one is attacking me. Although it does suck that our navy in the Baltic Sea got wiped out. I think that Great Britain is going to try to have us join them but there is know way I’m getting myself caught up in that mess. Like the saying goes hit two birds with one stone, I’m letting my enemies forces dirndl down so if an attack come I can at least try to survive. Once Rumania seems possible and my troops are moved I’m going in for their land.

USSR 1 1943: I planed to attack Rumania for their land. Due to that being the only way to get their territory. Although I didn’t account on the troops they would be able to defend with and my attack failed. To my defense I did try to take it by sending a lot of troops to the point that they were wakened. I’m not stupid so I won’t be attacking again. Germany will just move a portion of their troops and it would be best of I did the same. I’m gong to loose if I attack again so I will just stand by and let them come to me.

USSR 1 1944: I waited and planned to move troops to defend my border. I took some out of Serbia because they had a better chance of defending than my western troops. I know I’m going to be attacked seeing how easily France just got take over. Japan also has to acquire some land from my eastern territory. I think I have enough troops in each spot to defend and I can now only hope.

USSR 1 1945: I was attacked by Germany so we were forced to join the Allis and was able to defend the Ukraine. The Japanese then attack the Eastern USSR and I was able to defend without loosing any land. The war ended with me have almost all of my plans going perfectly and I put up a good fight against Rumania.

WW1 Lesson Plan Journal: Russia 2

Period 2

Russia 1913

We along with our alliances with Serbia plan on getting Montenegro, Greece, Romania, and Bulgaria all to ally with the Allied Powers. With these new alliances we plan to overtake the Ottoman-Empire and in result getting the Dardanelles Strait in our power. With this new acquired land for the Allied Forces and the Dardanelles Strait we will now have a new and efficient way to get natural resources and products to our country.
We will move our troops from R2 to R4 and R3 to ensure the safety of our nation. We will keep all our original troops in R3 so when can ensure that we are able to defend ourselves just incase Germany or Austria-Hungary attacks our nation. With keeping the original forces in R3 when other countries attack, we will get a +1 defense point to up our ranking by one. Also we will keep the original forces in R1 to ensure the safety of our capital so we don
