WW2 1938 – Orientation Day WWII Simulation

It’s the year 1938 and the rumors of the war are arising. The Axis powers are developing a plan of action. I think they are going to attack hard to start the war off aggressively. 

WW2 1939-

Poland was attacked instensly by Germany.  They knew they had no chance. There was no plan of action and the Axis powers succeeded.  Belgium took over the small, unprotected, territory of Greece with no conflict.  We are planning on giving our resources to the contries in need.  We made an alliance with Belgium and are giving some resources to keep them in the war.  China also is in desperate need of resources and we are sending them. 

WW2 1940-

Germany is starting this year off with a massive battle.  They try to move their armies into French North Africa.  The Allies were victorious but lost a lot.  The Axis powers took over Belgium with a big fight.  Now Italy is trying to take over Yugoslavia. Yugoslavia is defeated by the Axis powers.  Axis powers take over Norway. Japan is attacking Dutch-East Indies. Axis Powers show a lot of power in the war right now. We are remaining neutral until dragged in.  Our economy can not handle the war at the moment unless we absolutely have to. 

WW2 1941-

This may be the year.  We can’t stand back watching Germany and the Axis powers taking over.  Hitler has too much power and we need to atleast try stopping him.  He is causing too much damage in the war.  Hopefully someone brings us in soon so we can supply our larger countries in need and help the allies.  Japan is going to attack. Japan attacks the allies navy in Pearl Harbor and completely destroys us.  We are forced to join the allies in order to stay in war. Our first move was to assist France in the war.  We were demolished by the Axis powers in the battle.  We lost all 300 troops.  Our Navy is going to take Great Britains troops to try and defeat Norway. Sweden and Finland are assistinf Great Britan on this.  The allies should come out victorious in this battle.

WW2 1942- 

The neutrals are held on by a thread. It looks like the Axis powers are going to drag them to their side and they do.  Now the Axis Powers are larger than ever.  We are again trying to help France so we move Great Britains troops into France and we are victorious.  The Axis powers are attacking French Indo-China so the Netherlands used their navy to move our army into battle.  We moved ours as well and were victorious. Germany attacked France and took it over. 

WW2 1943-

We are going to try and take over Italy.  Our navy is strong and Great Britains troops should be able to take over. We succeed and need reinforcement in that area.  This gives us hope for the war. Great Britain took over Russias navy in a fierce battle. We have to do something with our troops because we can’t get into Europe. We try to move but aren’t succussful. They take over Italy. 

WW2 1944-

This year is becoming clear who is winning.  The Netherlands are getting attacked.  We are the only ones who can help.  We moved 450 troops into the Netherlands to battle the Germans.  The Netherlands are taken over.  The only allied countries left are us, Great Britain, French North Africa, and a few smaller countries. We still have to try taking over those smaller countries.  We try to take back the Netherlands and fail miserably.  The Netherlands navy was also taken over.  Egypt is being demolished by Lybia and Germany. 

WW2 1945-

It is our last hope in the war. We are trying to do anything to take back over Europe. We tried our last shot at Belgium with all of our navy and asisting Great Britain.  We still were unsuccessful. Japan takes over our navy near Hawaii. Belgium is being taken over by Great Britian but is not successful. The allied powers are done for and the axis powers are succesful.

Block 4- France 1913. WWI Simulation

Stakes are already high as country leaders are forming and taking positions. The Great Powers and the Allied Powers already understand their battle for power. We have not yet spoken directly to each other. Agreements are made within the alliances as neutral countries keep to themselves. I worry for smaller countries and their abilities to stay sufficient. France isn’t as strong as our allied countries. Russia has large land numbers and Great Britain’s Navy is a force to be reckoned with. We just hope we will be able to hold our own and be useful in this upcoming war.

Block 4- France 1914

As countries begin discussing ally-ship and pairing off France is doing the same. The leaders of the country are weary of their partners in the Allied Powers. Britain seems reckless and isolates themselves from the others. While Russia is abrasive and seems to lead the Allies. No attacks are made yet but all can feel the tension amongst the countries. Small countries are already reaching out for guidance from larger ones. They are scared. We are all scared in these troubling times with knowing what will inevitably come. Even the United States held a conference with Allied Powers. They seemed unknowing of what to do while being on the other side of the world. France will accept their help but keeps an eye on where their loyalty’s will lie. France feels they cannot truly trust Russia either. They are too self centered and France knows they would sacrifice others for their country. Serbia made their rebuttal speech of the assassination of the Arch Duke of Hungary-Austria. They seem to want peace but will resort to violence. With France’s loyalty to Montenegro we may be dragged into their feud. 

Block 4- France 1915

War begins. Germany decided to attack Russia. France is not surprised by their hastiness. Germany is a very competant army with strong leaders. They will not waste time and instead take action. We only hope that they will not target us because our armies are not strong enough yet. The thing that protects us the most is the Ardennes forest. Belgium wishes to form an alliance with us but we are unsure whether to make it public or not. They say they cannot afford to let Germany march troops on their land. But we are unsure whether we should ally or conquer. Their army is weak and with Belguim destroyed we could reclaim that land and grow closer to Germanic armies. Land was gained and lost between Germany and Russia. The Ottoman Empire seems to pose a threat as well. We must focus on keeping the trading routes open for all of the Alliance’s sakes. We need more countries to form together for troops. Our armies weak and we are stretched thin across Europe. Britain plans to move their troops out after we have destroyed the German Navy. We must keep vigilant about Austria-Hungary. They have tried to take Romania’s partnership away from us. They were unsuccessful but still a threat with their growing army. We believe with our new poisonus gas and growth of our armies with Italy, Romania, and Belguims allyship, that we can pull through this war together.

Block 4- France 1916

When the meetings started I could tell the leaders were tired. We are at a crossroads as a group. As The Great Powers grow in troop size we gain more allies. Italy, Portugal and Romania are in our ranks. Russia is being cocky and used all their troops to try and wipe out the Ottoman Empire. The Great Powers were victorius and Russia is on the verge of collapsing. I don’t know how I feel about Russia’s rulers. They are impulsive and could only drag the Alliance down.

Block 4- France 1917

We are in chaos. We can’t agree on anything. Russia is becoming desperate. Mexico comes to Germany’s aid which can’t mean anything good for us. Submarine warfar begins, risking our Navy. Russia surrenders. We are starting to try to gather troops to storm Germany. We gather in Belguim since they have been gracious enough to let us. We fear we won’t be able to sustain ourselves though. Italy, France and Britian all seem to be frozen in fear. Since Russia’s fall we have become more cautious, careful not to follow suit in their ignorant battle strategies. We have lost so much already; Romania, Bulgaria, Greece, Montenegro, Serbia. We figure the best thing we can do now for our own country is defend. I hope for the best in our future.

Block 4- France 1918

I was away sick during this year of battle, but my Ministry filled me in on the action that ensued. I am sad to see Belguim fall to the German empire. Though I can’t say I’m surprised. I am grateful for Great Britain and America’s help during this war. I was estatic to hear though that France has stayed intact. And our allies of Britian have survived as well. Italy was no so lucky though. I can’t say we have won this war, only surivived it. I believe that it went all wrong before it even started. The Alliance was not a strong team. We argued and let Russia led us into battle. I should have seen their facade of great leadership before hand. I believe it is because of our lack of initiative and The Great Powers overwhelming strength that led to all this. I only hope we can move forward in the future and better all of our countries.
