Italy 4 1938 –  WWII Simulation

The best thing for us to do is move our troops and Navy.  Our plan is to take over Greece, French North Africa, or Egypt.  We would like to attack French North Africa first because they have some of the resources we need, and it would also help us complete one of our objectives.  There is no point in having our navy in the Tyrrhenian, because it is helping no one.  We are going to move some to the East Mediterranean sea zone, and also the West Mediterranean sea zone. 

Italy 4 1939 –  

Without being able to move or do any military operations, our plan for 1940 is still the same as 1938.  Move our navy into the East and West Mediterranean sea zones, and attack French North Africa, so we can get some resources that we need.  After that we are going to try and attack Egypt, because it is one of the closer countries that we need to acquire to complete one of our objectives. Japan and Germany went to many battles this year, both of their troops were very strong so they just kept attacking and attacking to take over more and more territory.  They did very well this year and conquered many different territories. 

Italy 4 1940 –  

We noticed Great Britain moved their Navy towards Italy into the West Mediterranean sea zone, so our plans have changed.  Instead of trying to attack French North Africa we have decided to just stand our ground instead and wait to see if Great Britain attacks us first because, it is better anyways to be the defender instead of the attacker.  Great Britain and France started to attack in the Tyrrhenian sea zone that Italy owned, and won that Navy battle.  They then moved to Libya who Italy also owns and we only had 240 troops and they had 300 there was nothing we could do because they took out all of our Navy so we couldn’t move any more troops to Libya to help and no one else had Navy in that sea zone to send troops either, so they gained that territory as well. It was very devastating but unfortunately there was just nothing that we could have done. 

Italy 4 1941 –  

Our plan for this year is to take over Yugoslavia with the help of Bulgaria and Hungary.  If we end up getting the victory it will help us then take over Albania and Greece which is one of the objectives.  And we are victorious, with the help from other countries we conquered Yugoslavia, so now it will be easier to get Albania, and Greece.  We acquired Greece, and still have 164 troops leftover, so our next plan is to take over Albania.  Axis powers are pushing ahead, and claiming tons of territory.  It is not looking very hopeful for the Allies or Neutrals.  

Italy 4 1942 –  

This year’s plan is to take over France with the help of Germany because then we can use France’s Navy.  We also would like to conquer Albania to complete one of the objectives.  If we get France then we can use their navy which would be ours if we win, to attack Iraq, Syria, Egypt, and the rest of the countries down there. We have started a battle with Albania, and only sent four troops over, because no one can come and help them anyways. We gained Albania!  Next mission is for Germany to attack France first and then we will help.  Great Britain and the US both moved troops into France so we are guessing they are either going to try and go after Germany or us.  Germany just conquered F1 of France! It is now our turn to try and take over F2.  We sent over 3,000 troops and unfortunately that wasn’t enough.  That pretty much goes to show how weak Italy’s army is. 

Italy 4 1943 –  

Right now Italy is at a bit of a halt. There’s really not much more we can do with all of our navy gone and all of the places we need to conquer, we would need someone’s navy for.  The USSR has 20 navy in the East Mediterranean sea zone but that still wouldn’t be enough troops to take over the places that we need.  Germany acquired another part of France which is good for us, because if somehow the Axis powers could take over that last piece of France we might be able to use some of their navy to get the places we need.  But we only have a couple years left, so we’ll see what happens. We moved some of our troops into a part of France to help Germany take over that last bit of France that is  left. We got the last piece of France so we are going to ask France if we could use their navy. 

Italy 4 1944 –  

Italy is still at a halt, and now the USSR’s navy got wiped out so there is no hope.  There was talk to maybe ask the US if we could use their navy, but with them being a part of the Allies the chances are very low.  There is really nothing we can do.  1944 was not very eventful, there were not many wars, and if there were, the axis powers usually won.  There was one navy battle with Japan and the US and the US knocked out all of their navy.  The US also tried to get Norway back and won. That was not much of a loss for the Axis powers because of how much land we have already conquered. 

Italy 4 1945 – 

 The war is starting to slow down.  Battles are becoming less and less.  Italy is at a standstill because none of the Axis powers have any more navy to get anywhere, we just have to move from country to country if we want to get somewhere.   The US just invaded Hawaii which Japan owned, and the US won. The Allies are trying to get back places that the Axis powers took over, but there still isn’t a lot they can do because if they attack first we will just send more troops then them so that we will keep our territories.  The US and Great Britain just attacked F3 of France which the Axis powers had taken from them earlier in the war.  Italy and Germany just sent all of their troops into France to try and defend it but it was not enough and they got it back.  They went to war with Sweden as well because we took it from them, and they got that back too.  The Allies just got Finland.  It was a battle that was very close but the Allies won. Italy tried to get F2 back not knowing they could move two zones.  So they moved a lot of their troops into F2 to attack and we lost.  That ended the war, and it is still an Axis Power victory, so I’m happy with the outcome.
