WWII Simulation Student Journals: Poland & The Netherlands

Poland 2 1939 WWII Simulation

The war has begun! Germany first move was war on us. Unfortunatley we were unable to stop them and to be able to keep some troops we did not want to move anymore troops in there. Germany has taken over one part of Poland. I believe that there next movement will be to take over the rest of Poland. Sadly we will still not be able to stop them from taking over Poland because Great Britain and France are unable to move troops over to help. Our original plan was to persuade Russia to defend us so that we could have a two-front war on Germany and stop them from expanding land. However Russia back stabbed us and ended up taking over the final part of Poland. 

Netherlands 2 1939 

War has started and Germany is moving into Poland. Great Britain has moved troops into the netherlands to help keep Germany out of there. Our plan is to stand our grand and remain neutral until we possibly can no longer do that. If we are unable to no longer defend the Netherlands we will then run to Great Britain and help them. I think that germanys main focus right now is to continue conquering land and we will try our best to get Great Britain and France to defend us so tht they cannot come through there. 

Poland 2 1940 

The war has escalated. Germany has sarted to move troops in the opposite direction from us They were victorious at the battle in Belgium . Japan has started to take over all areas of China they were victorious on NC China and SE china as well. Germany has not stopped there plan on taking over every country as they started a battle in Norway and were victorious. We no longer have an army and our country is ruled under axis power however we do still have our navy. There was a navy battle between the allied and Germany and we were victorius. 

Netherlands 2 1940

Japan has such a strong army and navy that they are almost unstoppable. Japan had declared war on the Dutch EI which is where all of our resources are coming from. We had to join the Allies in order to help defend our resources. We are no longer neutral and are on edge at this point. Germany is starting to move closer and closer to us. And there wont be much we can do without France moving there troops into belgium. Since Great Britain has already used there navy. 

Poland 2 1941 

The war is stll going, Italy has taken over part of France. Japan is continuing to grow stronger and stronger and have finally brought the US into war with a naval battle at Peral Harbor and Japan was victorious. The US has moved troops into France because Germnay has started another war in France. The axis powers were victorious and Japan continues to move troops and take over all parts of China. We were stuck in the baltic sea because the port was closed. However the allies were able to take over Norway and reopen that. Our navy moved out of there and is now able to help get troops from the allies into other areas in need. 

Netherlands 2 1941

Germany is starting to move closer to the Netherlands. They have taken over Denmark and closed that port and entry through there. My hope is that Great Britain can move troops into Norway and re open the port so we can move our navy through there. The US has moved resources into our land. The US helped move Britains troops into Norway to reopen the port our navy is now able to move. I think this will kep German’ys heads away from the idea of taking over the Netherlands. 

Poland 2 1942

The USSR has joined the axis powers and now the rest of the world is in lots of trouble because they are so powerful there is almost nothing they can do. There is a big war happening in France and our navy was used to help defend. The USSR have taken over Finland and other European countries and now the Axis powers have a lot of power I believe that the allied powers are going to fight and may regain soe land however the axis powers are very strong and it will be a long battle. 

Netherlands2 1942

There was a battle in French Indo-China and our navy was down there. We helped move US troops into Indo-China and we were victorious at battle. We are still standing strong and havent moved any troops and Germany hasn’t moved any troops into the Netherlands. However,  Germany has moved more troops closer to us and into Bulgaria but right now I think that their focus is on france right now. 

Poland 2 1943

The allies have started war in Italy. The allies were victorious but lost many troops. And then there was a naval battle with Russia and the allies were victorious again. Things are looking up for the allies but who knows how long that upward hill will last. The US has moved the troops to the weastern part and unfortunatley without a navy they are not allowed to move any of them. Germany is continuing to move into France and Belgium. 

Netherlands 2 1943 

The Netherlands is still laying low. We have not moved any of our troops and it doesnt seem like anyone is focusing on us. There has been many battles in Asia and down towards Italy. The allies may have a chance however the axis powers will come back stronger and im not sure if the allies have enough to defeat them again. The United states has finally gotten into the battle and I think there plan is to take back over asia however Japan is still really strong. 

Poland 2 1944

To start of the year germany has taken back over Italy from the allies and Germany now controls everything except Great Britain, French North Africa, the United States, and a few other countries. The axis powers have taken controls of the whole world and there isnt much we can do to stop them. I believe the allies are planing to continuously attack the German troops and make them loose as many troops as possible. 

Netherlands 1944

The netherlands has been attacked by Germany. The US has moved 450 troops to help save us but unfortunatley that was not enough to save us the Axis powers were victorious. The netherlands is now under axis rule. Great Britain tired to attack the ntherlands again and regian control but unfortunatley the were defeated by the Germans. The US and us have moved our ships away from japan and the areas over there. However japan has started a naval battle against the netherlands and the US. and they were victorious. The US tried again to take over the netherlands but unfortunately they lost again. I have moved US troops into Norway  with my navy. 

Poland 2 1945

The war is finally starting to die down. There isn’t much going on at the moment. The US have lost two territories. And they have tried to gain control of belgium and have brutally lost many troops. We are using our navy to take over Denmark because Germany isn’t able to do anything there. However we were unable to see that russia had navy to move troops in there and we were defeated in battle against Russia. I have a suspision that the Axis powers are going to move troops into Weastern US and end up being demolish by the 8,000 US troops in Eastern US. Japan has defeated the US navy in East Pacific. 

Netherlands 2 1945 

To start of the new year Japan has attacked hawaii and alaska. Unfortunately there isnt’t much we could do. I do think that japan is going to move into the western US and they dont realize that there is 8,000 troops sitting in eastern US that we could move if they attack the Weastern US. There isn’t much the Netherlands is able to do considering we have no troops. We are trying our best to get the US and Great Britain to attack again and regain contrl but im not sure that thats where their focus is at. 

WWI Simulation Student Journals: Belgium & Portugal

Belgium 1914 WWI Simulation

The archduke was killed! Austria-Hungry, Russia, France, Ottoman Empire, Serbia, Germany, and Belgium have mobilized. I have mobilized because Germany and France both did and I am supposed to defend my territory at all costs. I have made a secret defensive alliance with France and am trying to get great Britain to defend me as well. I believe that Italy is making alliances with both the allied and central powers and they will be in very big trouble soon. Great Britain has just mobilized. I think that the central powers will start war first and sadly be taken down by the allied powers. I also think that Bulgaria is making alliances with the allied countries. The United States has now mobilized. Germany has asked to move troops through Belgium twice now and both times I have declined unfortunately I know that this will not last long and they will forcefully move their troops through. I have now made another secret defensive alliance with Great Britain. This means that if Germany were to force troops through Belgium they would be there to defend me. War has been declared and A-H has declared war on Serbia for killing the Archduke. Austria-Hungary has defeated Serbia. Belgium does still has one African Colony, the Belgian Congo. 

Portugal 1914

Portugal has been laying low and many countries are mobilizing. We have not said anything or talked to any other countries and have not been persuaded one way yet. We have decided to stay neutral for right now. I have a suspicion that the central powers are going to continue to fight and take over as much as they can however I plan to gain an alliance with GB and the Allies will return stronger and win. We plan to still remain quiet and eventually join the Allied Powers. I have no business being in war right now. I do think that alliances are being made by the central powers with some neutral countries and the allied are also making alliances with neutral countries. Portugal has two African Colonies, Angola and Mozambique.

Belgium 1915

The Lusitania has sunk! Bulgaria has joined with the central powers and Italy has joined with the allied powers both countries have chosen to mobilize. I do believe Germany is going to start a battle soon. A-H and Germany are attacking R3 of Russia. I believe Russia will be able to have alliances and come back and take over. Germany and A-H have now taken over R3 of Russia. France is going to move troops into Belgium to help defend my land from Germany who has been asking to move troops through my land. I think that with France’s troops defending me then Germany will think differently about going through Belgium. Italy has tried to move troops into Austria-Hungary and unfortunately was defeated. I do think that Austria-Hungary will declare war on Italy which is part of the Allied powers. Italy has gone to the Central powers. The French have moved 4000 troops into Belgium.

Portugal 1915

Portugal has not done anything yet we still have no reason to be in war yet. There have been different battles and the central powers have taken control. I have my suspicions that the allied powers are going to regain control. Germany and A-H have become really close alliances. Italy has now switched to the central powers which is okay because Italy has become very weak. There have not been any naval battles yet except for the Lusitania so I have an idea that it is going to happen soon from Germany. We are still remaining Neutral since nothing has come close to us yet. 

Belgium 1916

The French have moved their troops into Germany and were defeated which means I no longer have France’s troops to support me against Germany’s troops. I am planning on having Great Britain and France move more troops into Belgium. I have a feeling that Germany is going to go through Belgium anyway and I will unfortunately not have enough to defeat them. The central powers are starting to take over the leftover parts of Russia since they lost all their troops to Germany. 

Portugal 1916 

We have now mobilized, and have joined with the Allies. I am in an alliance with Great Britain. My plan is to have France’s navy move me into France to help support them. Germany is starting to become very strong and taking over many parts of the Allies’ countries.  The central powers are taking over the leftover Russian regions and I think that they will be victorious over there. 

Belgium 1917 

The US has been joined with the Allies and Germany is moving more troops into G1 which is right next to Belgium. I believe that Germany is going to try to force its way through Belgium. I have had France and Great Britain move troops into Belgium. I think that I will eventually get the US France and GB to move the rest of the troops. Germany is moving over 5000 troops through Belgium and Great Britain and France do not have enough troops to support me. The United States is trying to persuade them to help support Belgium. The United States has persuaded them to defend me and sadly Belgium has been defeated. My country is now part of the Central Powers. It was an extremely well fought battle and Germany lost the majority of their troops however they were still able to go through Belgium no matter how hard we fought. 

Portugal 1917 

Portugal has done nothing right now. Belgium was defeated in a very big battle against the central powers and all of the allied powers. I have allowed France to transport all my troops to defend the territory of France. Germany did defeat France and so unfortunately Portugal was defeated. My country has still not been taken over but I have zero troops to defeat me. I think the Central powers are going to take over the rest of the Allied countries but I think the Allies are going to move all their troops into GB and the US so that the Central powers can only move troops through their navy. 

Belgium 1918

I am trying to get the Allied powers to take back Belgium and France. The US and GB are the only countries with a decent amount of troops left. However, I don’t think that they will be successful considering that Germany is very strong right now. I think that even if the allies were to take back over France and Belgium the central powers are too strong and the Allies would be defeated. Austria-Hungary is moving more troops into Belgium because the Allies were successful in defeating the Central Powers in France F3. I think that the Central powers are moving through Belgium because they are eventually going to move them all into F1 and try to take over the rest of France. Although I think that the allies are weaker at this time I do think that if we go into a naval war we would be victorious. 

Portugal 1918 

Portugal is still part of the Allies, I had lost all my troops from the war in France but I now have 20 more troops there. There has been a war going on in France and in the sea and both times the Allies have been victorious. I plan to move my troops into France since I assume there will be a battle there soon. I don’t think that there will be much more from the allies since the german troops have too much power over us. This war has not done much to Portugal however it has done a lot of damage to my alliances if they do want to go to war my alliances will have all my troops available to them. 

WWII Simulation Student Journal: Rumania, Hungary and Bulgaria

Rumania, Hungary, Bulgaria 4 1939 WWII Simulation

First year of this war, and things I feel are going to get heated. Rumania, Hungary, and Bulgaria, our goal is to keep our original territory throughout this whole war. Bulgaria is going to remain neutral until 1941, and then hopefully we can ally with the Axis. We are going to ally with Germany and help them out as best we can for Rumania. Our biggest goal for Rumania is to acquire ⅓ of the territory from the USSR (Ukraine). Our biggest goal for Hungary is to obtain a large portion of Yugoslavia. The bad thing is that the countries we need don’t have any resources. I am hoping we can stay out of conflicts until 1941 for Hungary, but I am a bit nervous. First year of WWII and things are looking pretty good for the Axis powers! So far the axis powers have been victorious in all the battles we have fought, which is really exciting. 

Rumania, Hungary, Bulgaria 4 1940

Another year of Rumania, Hungary, and Bulgaria just sitting back and watching things happen unless someone needs us. I hope no one will need us because then that will ruin some of our objectives. I am doing really well at staying hidden. I am starting to think that I need to start talking with the Axis powers about allying with them. I am pretty sure they will let me ally with them which is a good thing. I can’t wait for next year because then I can start taking over countries and hoping I will be victorious in them all. This year we are going to try and get as much natural resources as we can. We did get our rubber complete thanks to the help of Japan. Rumania helped Italy with their oil that they needed because we had 15 and we only needed 3. Rumania also helped out Bulgaria and Hungary with their oil. 

Rumania, Hungary, Bulgaria 4 1941

Finally the year has come. This year, I am hoping we can attack Yugoslavia. One bad thing is that we can’t have Hungary help us out because they have to stay out of conflict until 1941. So what I am planning on is that we have Rumania and Bulgaria help out and then any other countries that are with us. Bulgaria and Hungary can finally start allying with people and start taking over other countries. I am going to attack Yugoslavia and hope we are successful. Italy, Germany, Hungary, and Bulgaria are going to help us attack those countries. That fight was victorious for the axis powers! The USSR/ Ukraine allied with the axis powers. That means we didn’t really conquer them. So we unfortunately probably didn’t get the points for that objective. The good news is that the axis powers are very victorious in all of our battles. We are undefeated! We are moving some troops into Yugoslavia to help Italy battle Greece. We won that war, again! Now we just sit back and wait for things to happen and help anyone that needs help on the Axis power sides. 

Rumania, Hungary, Bulgaria 4 1942

This year I am going to try and get all of our resources covered so we don’t have to worry about getting them later on. I am also going to move some troops from Rumania into Ukraine so that we can at least try and own ⅓ of that country. I let them move some troops into Rumania without thinking anything over. Even though they are allied with us, I think they still own part of Rumania. These next few years I feel are going to be pretty boring. All don’t really have to do anything unless someone needs our help, or if we are getting attacked. I am hoping people will give us some of their resources that they have extra in. We moved 50 of our troops into Ukraine successfully. 

Rumania, Hungary, Bulgaria 4 1943

Axis powers are doing so good! We have been successful in all of our wars besides like a few. Rumania, Hungary, and Bulgaria finished all of their objectives. These next few years we are going to try and get all of our resources, so then we will be done with everything, and like I said before, just sit back and wait till someone needs help or if we get attacked. It does not look like we will be getting attacked or anything anytime. Everyone that is on the axis powers, have pretty much all of their objectives done so they are just taking over more land just for fun, and so that there is more yellow on the map. Oh no, Allied powers just took Norway back. That is not good. I think they are going to try and start to take back some of the USSR. I really hope that they don’t go and ally with the Allied powers because then that will not look good for the Axis Powers. I don’t think they will be allying with the Allied powers. I really hope that they will not be successful in anything and then we can still have control over all of those countries. Things just keep looking better and better for the Axis Powers. 

Rumania, Hungary, Bulgaria 4 1944

Another year of us doing nothing besides trying to get the rest of our resources. So far no one has helped us with our resources. I wish there was something we could do but there really isn’t anything we can do. The Allied powers are trying to get at the Axis powers. Japan lost their navy to the US. They are planning to start taking over things that Japan owns because they will have nothing they can do. Japan moved a lot of there stuff over to the USSR which they shouldn’t have really done because then the US is going to start attacking countries that are with the Axis Powers. 

Rumania, Hungary, Bulgaria 4 1945

Last year of WWII. We were not able to get all of our resources. The Allied powers are going to try to take over Hawaii from Japan which isn’t good for them. They are going to try and step up and start taking over more of our countries. I think that the US is going to try and take over Australia, but they will have nothing they can do because they lost their navy. I feel that this might not end well. I really hope the Axis powers are going to be victorious at the end of this war. I think that the Allied Powers are going to start taking over our weaker countries where there are not as many troops in them. The Axis powers are not going to have any war because there is really nothing that nay of us can do, so then we are going to just start moving. The allied powers on the other hand have some things in mind about war. The US just took over F3 which is not looking good on the USSR. This is not looking good for any of the Axis powers. They are really attacking everyone that is on the Axis powers. We are starting to lose more battles which is sad. There is not much we can do about any of this. The Allied powers are starting to pick up on their war. When it gets to our turn we just keep doing movement right away so that we have more time hopefully at the end to do whatever we need to do at the last minute. Things are getting heated as the last few minutes of war start to come to an end. Rumania, Bulgaria, and Hungary really have nothing they can do. Oh no, big war. The US is starting a war with Finland. The Allies were victorious. 🙁 They are starting to come towards us I think. I really hope that they don’t try to come for us because I don’t think there will be much we would be able to do. Germany was able to keep F1. I believe we are going to try and take F3 back. We were not victorious. I would have to say that the Axis Powers were Victorious throughout the whole war!!

WWII Simulation Student Journal: Yugoslavia & Belgium

Yugoslavia & Belgium 2 1938 WWII Simulation

There are rumors about another world war this is filling people with fear. Germany has re-occupied the Rhineland they also annexed Austria and broken the Munich agreement. When they took over all of Czechoslovakia. With Japan taking over Manchuria and parts China. Germany and the USSR signed a Nonaggression Pact. Which terrified the western democracies. With being such a small country with no resources we are tying to strategize now so we don’t get conquered.

Yugoslavia & Belgium 2 1939

We think Yugolovia should try and get our resources from Germany before we cut ties. We think we should wait one more year before we talk to Germany.We also want to regain are original territory by starting with Greece. Belgium is starting to make defensive alliances we already have one with France and Great Britain. We decided it would be smart to make an alliance with U.S. We are trying to get as many as we can. The U.S. also gave Belgium 1 Oil, Iron Ore, and Coal. This is a good start for Belgium for the first year. Hopefully the next year Belgium can make more alliances and not get attacked by Germany. For Yugoslavia we hope to get our resources before we break ties.

Yugoslavia & Belgium 2 1940

Are game plan for Yugoslavia for this year to get some of our resources from germany before we cut ties with them this year. We also need to talk to Great Britain and France about making an alliance with them once we cut ties with Germany. We found out the Netherlands have a lot of rubber so we are going to trying and make an alliance with them to get our resources. That idea was halted quickly when Germany started to attack Belgium. France and Great Britain did everything they could but it wasn’t enough. Belgium got taken over by Germany. Just when we thought we were done Italy attacked Yugoslavia. Their wasn’t much we could do. We sent the 300 troops from Greece to help in Yugoslavia. It wasn’t enough. Now we are out of the war and the Axis powers have taken both of our countries. We no longer have control of our countries. The Axis powers keep taking more and more land. The Allies can barley keep up. Its not looking good for the Allies. 

Yugoslavia & Belgium 2 1941

With another year of the war approaching we are all uncertain of what it will bring for the world. With Belgium out of the war and Yugolavia left with Greece but no troops its not looking good. Hopefully we can be liberated. The Axis powers now have a chance on the battle field I think things are going to get worse for the Allies. We are shocked because America was just attacked in Pearl Harbor by Japan. There wasn’t much they could do and they lost. This means America is in the war. Our countries are now out of the war. Greece was attacked by the Axis and no one could help so we lost the battle and are land. The Allies are losing more and more land. I an wonder why the USSR isn’t doing anything to help. Are they planning something with the Axis powers. Their isn’t much left of France. What will France and Great Britain do in retaliation. Will they battle back or are they to weak. I think their just going to do some movement. This has been a long year. 

Yugoslavia & Belgium 2 1942

I can’t believe their is another year of war. These past 4 years have been long. How much more pain, suffering and lost will the world take. Will it end soon. Hopefully it does. We are up first this year. We can’t do anything because we have no troops. The USSR seems to be brewing a big battle. The question is what side are they attacking. They have been talking to the Axis powers a lot. This could get worse for the Allies. They attacked Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia. The USSR won each battle. A large wave of shock covers the world when the USSR joins the Axis powers. With Axis powers have more then 75% of the land on the map. They have won. Its just a matter of time till they take over everything. The Allies are looking defeated I don’t think we can come back from this. France was attacked I think this might be the end for them. The Allies won! This is good they needed that. Axis powers started another battle and lost. This is turning around for the Allies. Then France got attacked again. This is not good France can’t move anymore troops. They moved everything in the last battle. Since they couldn’t move anything they lost it. The Axis also took over Finland and Albania. 

Yugoslavia & Belgium 2 1943

I can’t believe there is another year of the war approaching. How much longer will we suffer? It looks like the Axis powers are going to win. They have all of France taken over. The Allie powers are brewing a large battle into Italy. They put over 800 troops into Italy. The Axis powers tried to put as many troops as they could to defend it. The Axis was defeated and the Allies won. This is looking better for Allies. I think there is hope that Allies can win. There was also a navy battle in the East Mediterranean Sea Zone. The Allies won. This means that the Axis powers have less ships so they can’t move as many troops over sea. The Axis powers are probably furious who know what they are planning. They probably want to get Italy back. There was an Axis victory in Indo China. America didn’t want to lose troops and took the loss. This was probably a smart move because they wanted to keep their troops. The Allies have to make big moves to take back some land. 

Yugoslavia & Belgium 2 1944

Another year of war. This is unbelievable. This should have ended years ago. Countries are getting weaker. People are struggling. This needs to stop. The Axis powers are ruthless and are never going to stop. The Axis powers are starting a large battle in the the Netherlands. Will the Allies be able to bring in enough troops. The Axis powers were victorious. Thats another loss for Allies. There is isn’t much more we can loss. America and Great Britain is about all the is left. What are the Allies going to do. While they do everything they can or will they fold under the pressure. Great Britain was very upset about he netherlands being taken over so they are send their troops over there to take it right back. But will they have have enough. They sadly didn’t the Axis powers were victorious again. Abria was taken over by the Axis powers. The Allies are looking defected and losses. The Axis powers are trying to get control of as many countries as the can.  The Axis power took over the Netherlands again. How many troops will be lost in the Netherlands. Its smart for America to move some of their troops to Great Britain so Allies can use those troop more. This war has been dragging on for years now.

 Yugoslavia & Belgium 2 1945 

Thank goodness this is the last year of the war. This has dragged on for to long. People can’t take this anymore. Are the Axis powers going to take over the rest of the Allies land. Or can the Allies came together and get their land back. Japan is attacking Alaska and Hawaii. America chose to do nothing to save their troops. Which was a smart strategy because there wasn’t much they could do so they would have just lost the troops. The Axis powers were able to take both over. This is big news the Allies are attacking Belgium. We could get our country back. It might not be over for us! We had lost all hope but maybe in the last year there is a chance. Germany is coming back stronger and with more troops. This is going to be an intense battle. All hope is lost again the Axis powers won. The Allies have be planing something big. But even if they are there isn’t enough time. To finish the war the Allies attacked the navy in the Baltic Sea Zone. The war is over and things are bad for the Allies. It shouldn’t have ended like this. The world is a scary place right now. 

WWI Simulation Student Journal: France

France 2 1914 WWI Simulation

As the war started we kept our objectives in the back of our head. We went back and forth on whether or not to mobilize but in the end decide it was best because we found out other countries began to mobilize. We have talked to couple countries like Belgium. We decided to form a secret defensive alliance. We are planning on putting troops in Belgium soon. We at some point want to get make a strong and honorable alliance with Montenegro. We heard that Serbia might be attacking Mongtreal. Then out of no were war was declared on Serbia from Austria-Hungry. We have an Alliance with them. It sucks that we wern’t able to help them since we are too far away.

France 2 1915

We can’t belive what happened with the Lusitania. We are furious with Germany and what they did to those Americans and the Britians. We have a secret Alliance with America so this is very upsetting us. We are really thinking about declaring war with Germany but we want a little more help. The news just came that Austria-Hungary and Germany just attacked part of Russia. I think Great Britain is going to try to help Russia. As Russia was getting taken over its looking bad for the Allies. As France I think we are going to move are troops into G2 so we can hopefully concur. Our plans were halted when we found out only a 1000 troops can go through the Ardennes forest. We backed out of our attack and hope Germany doesn’t go for Belgium before we can get troops in there. We were successful in moving 4000 troops into Belgium. I fear that Germany has noticed our troops are in Belgium and will attack before we attack them. 

France 2 1916

The Allies have a big plan brewing. We want to attack the central power from all sides. Get Russia in to R3 and O2. From talking to Russia they think that is a good idea. Great Britain is also going to try and help as much as they can. Now that romanian is on our side we are going to try and get them to attack Serbia. Since there was no troops in Serbia at the time. We wanted to attack with 4000 in to G1. With how strong and how many troops the Central power has we were unable to capture any of that land. Now Russia is left with out any defence. Romania wasn’t about to attack Serbia. We wouldn’t be surprised if Austria-Hungary or Germany attacks Russia. The Central Powers have almost taken everything. They took Romina and we couldn’t do anything. We were right and they attacked Russia. This is not looking good for us. 

France 2 1917

America just got stronger I hope this helps us fight back from the powerful forces of the central power. We think fighting at this time wouldn’t be the smartest thing to do right now because we are weak. I don’t think we are going to win this. We are thinking if things go really bad we can all go to Great Britain or the US. Russia just surrendered I dont think there is anything we can do to stop the Central Power from taking all of France. Things are getting worst. F2 of France got taken over. We decided to not to move any more troops to help defend that section because we are thinking their is going to be a big attack in Belgium so we wanted to save our troops for that. We were right. Germany moved 5158 in to Belgium. We went back and forth whether or not we should send troops in to Belgium. We did and sent all we had. We lost which is not good we lost all of our troops except for the 10 in French North Africa. We thought it would be smart to move the 80 from Portugal and some from Great Britain in to F1. Germany attacked us and we got taken over. I think Italy and Germany are going to take over the last section of France. Things are getting rough and I think the Allies are not going to make it through this war. We will have to see how the next year goes. 

France 2 1918

The debate is strong. Do we fight or do we expect fate. With no troops in France all we can do is move troops with our navy. Lucky America was willing to let us move some into our last section of France. Great Britain is not willing to give us some troops. I think the Central Powers are going to take the last section of France then move to Great Britain. France is weak right now so it would be an easy target. LETS GO! We were victorious in France. This was what we needed. We are thinking about having a navy battle in the North Sea and we were victorious. This really upset Germany. This made them think we have power especially in our navy forces. Since we won that battle Germany has no more navy. We are thinking the best thing to do is it bring some more troops into France in hopes we can protect our selves. Great Britain and Japan just decided that their wasn’t much to do on land so they chose to do a navy battle in the Adriatic Sea against Italy. Allies were victorious. As the year comes to an end the war is wrapping up. It is looking good for the last part of France. We are going to make it through it.

Japan 4, 1938 WWII Simulation

Our first plans for the start of the war are to take over NC and SC China and also take the Eastern USSR right off the bat. We want to acquire the closest to us and spread out to eventually get all the land we need. 

Japan 4, 1939

We sent 1500 troops from NE China to NC China and successfully took that over. We also decided to send troops from SE China to SC China and that was also victorious SC China also had help from GB and France and still got defeated. Our goal is also to gain these lands to gain the rubber in Burma because we do not have any ruber and we need rubber to make our Navy the highest possible ranking. We also used our navy to move troops from Japan to Korea to get closer to attacking the Eastern USSR. Our last plan for the year is to send troops from SC China to Burma in order to get their rubber to make us stronger. We completed taking Burma and got our Military ranking to a 10. We now have more materials than we need, so we will share with the other Axis powers to make them stronger also. 

Japan 4,1940

This year we started off by giving 9 rubber to Germany, 6 to Italy, 3 to Romania, 1 to Bulgaria, and 1 to hungary. We decided to take initiative to attack and take over the U.S navy. We planned to take out most of the U.S navy this year and ended up getting it fully completed today because the last of the U.S navy ended up attacking us so our objective with the U.S navy is now completed before 1941. We attacked NW China and were victorious and completed taking over all of China. We plan to take French-Indo China and India and invade Thailand because it is not occupied and gain us more land to get further south to eventually take over and make it to Australia. We were victorious in all of our plans for this year. We moved many of our troops Manchucko to eventually be able to attack the Eastern USSR and take over all of Asia. 

Japan 4,1941

We allied the USSR to join the Axis powers and now our plan moving forward this year is to move south to gain all of the land below us. There is not much defense from anyone that could help them or us through battles so Japan has been undefeated. We advanced this year and gained the Dutch East Indies, we also used our navy to attack and gain Australia. We are now wanting to gain more land for the Axis power so we are using a joint effort between us and the USSR and are planning to take over Iran and continue to keep going west. 

Japan 4,1942

This year we started off by taking over Iraq and Syria with the USSR and that was also victorious. We are still planning to move east as we continue. We completed gaining the Philippines and got the rest of that land. We have been warned that GB and the US navys are trying to take over our navy to try to knock us out. They did decide to try to take our navy over but still came out victorious. We now are planning to take troops from the Dutch East Indies over to eventually get Hawaii. 

Japan 4,1943

Things are starting to slow down. Our navy was attacked in 1942 but we still have some left so we are planning to take over Hawaii and complete our objectives. We are also going to continue to move west and take as much as possible this year just to cover more land. We did accomplish taking Palestine and the Suez Canal and we cannot get any further without a Navy. The USSR let us use their navy and took 20 of our troops over to French North Africa however it got defended and we lost 20 of our troops. We used our navy to move troops from Japan to Alaska and took that over. 

Japan 4,1944

These last two years we do not have much to accomplish. We have a good feeling the Allied navy is trying to take over the last of our navy because the 66 of our navy is the only navy the Axis powers have left so we are planning to make them chase us. The GB navy did attack us so we lost more of our navy but were still victorious. However the United States attacked our Navy and we were defeated so we do not have any navy left. 

Japan 4,1945

This is the last year of the war and we have already completed most of our objectives. The axis powers have a majority of the land and it is seeming to look good. The US did take back Hawaii from us because we were outnumbered and could not get back out to Hawaii to defend. The US and Great Britain invaded part of France and Sweden. The axis powers are losing lots of land this year. We are thinking maybe the US and GB are going to attack Finland so we moved troops to Finland and to the coast in China in case there would be any sort of attack on us from the Navy. They did end up taking over Finland and many troops lost from Japan and the USSR. The allied powers are slowly gaining more land but the war is almost over and axis powers seem to still to end well and have a majority of the land. The war was an Axis victory!

WWI Student Journal: Austria-Hungary

WWI Simulation

Austria-Hungary 1914

It was the brink of the “War to end all Wars” they called it. Knowing our plan to exact revenge on Serbia, we planned on moving about 1000 troops to A3, planning to attack soon. We also wanted to form some alliances with Italy, since they seemed that they might be a thorn in our side. But they would budge, they said that they would think about it, planning that they won’t take our offer, Austria -Hungary decided to keep an eye on Italy. Germany,our allies, also plan on attacking R3 of Russia. Knowing that we had to honor our alliance with Germany, we watched and waited until we wanted to make an attack. Russia has so many troops, can we win?

Austria-Hungary 1915

We instantly attacked Serbia while they were making an alliance with another country. We did it, we took revenge for the assasination of our Archduke. Germany also moved into Russia, so we decided to help them by sending a couple hundred troops to help them. Then to our surprisement, Germany invented poison gas. Russia stood no chance against the central powers. We took control of R3 with ease. Then Bulgaria decided to show up and wanted to form an alliance with us, we obliged knowing that why cant do anything to us. After a while, Italy decided to attack, sending 1200 troops to A2, we had only 200 troops defending that. We needed a plan ASAP. What could we do? We realized that the troops surrounding A2 had a massive amount of Austro-Hungarian troops. So we decided to send 1000 from A1 to A2, and 300 from A3 to A2. Before the attack, Italy had 1200 troops, we now had 1500 troops. The attack was tense, would Italy be a bigger problem than we thought? After the attack, we won. We won and only lost about 500 troops, absolutely destroying Italy. Italy, low on troops, now wanted an alliance. They didn’t accept our offer before and now they expect us to accept theirs?  I wanted to punish Italy for what they did, but my advisors and the leaders of Bulgaria and Germany wanted to form an alliance with them, knowing that the troops would be useful to use against France. Our other allies, the Ottoman Empire, were on the brink of war with over 4000 troops knocking on their door, with only over 2000 to defend their Empire. We could not reach them in time, so my next plan is to reinforce O2 in case the ottomans lose, and attack the invading Russians. We also wanted to give Greece the option of either joining us, or being destroyed. They decided that they wouldn’t join us but gave us their word that they wouldn’t attack us. So I gave Bulgaria a plan of either destroying Greece, or leaving them alone, it’s up to them. How much longer is this war going to last!? But, with our alliances and strategy, I feel like this war might end very soon.

Austria-Hungary 1916

We came back together and went straight for the offensive, we completed our goal and took control of Greece. With our objective complete, we set our sights on Russia. But before we could attack, we had to defend Germany from the French. They had a few more troops compared to us, but we were able to help Germany defend their homeland. Now with Russia, with the ottoman empire from the south and Germany and Austria-Hungary from the East. We were outnumbered but that didn’t matter with Russia’s low industrialization. The ottoman empire beat the russians from the south so russia was in a corner with nothing to do.

Austria-Hungary 1917

We had a plan to finally take down Russia, but it seems the Russian citizens beat us to it. Since Russia was rapidly losing land, the citizens decided to start a civil war, making Russia surrender in the war. Germany also asked Mexico for help, but the message also got to the United States. Making them go to war with the central power. They were of little concern for us, but the biggest concern for us was the take over of Belgium. If we took that over, we would have a clear path to France. So Germany moved a little over 5,000 troops into Belgium and we moved over 400 into there as well. That’s when the Allies went on the complete offensive. They moved thousands into Belgium, quickly outnumbering us. But to everyone’s surprise, we won. We lost a lot of people in that battle so we had to quickly reinforce the troops before they were killed by the Brits. We were able to quickly reinforce the troops, moving France into a corner. We are so close to taking control of all of mainland Europe, we just need Britain. But now we wait for their move. 

Austria-Hungary 1918

The war seemed to be almost over with our victory on the horizon. But France wasn’t completely gone yet so we decided to attack with our troops and German troops. It seemed we were going to win easily but we didn’t know that reinforcements were on the way for France. We were outnumbered and lost our first battle in the war. We were never able to get France in complete control, but we were able to take their capital so they were no longer able to make more troops. Italy, Germany and the Ottoman Empire kept moving more and more east to try to take France and Britain. While I sent 100 troops to Egypt to take control of it. We ended up winning that battle, but Italy had their own battle. They were attacked by the Japanese and the British navy, it wasn’t much of a worry for us, I think they were just trying to do what they could to damage us as much as possible. The Allies never really made an attack on us besides for the attack on the Italian Navy I think they were just stalling so we couldn’t take full control of France. We did end up winning the war with our Allies, controlling almost all of Europe besides Portugal, a tiny bit of France, and Great Britain. It seemed like an easy win with only losing two battles in the entire war, but I will never forget the battle of Belgium.

U.S.S.R. 2 1939 WWII Simulation

After looking over our objectives we decided to take control of Poland P2 which was one of our objectives. While we took P2, Germany took P1 which might not be good for us. We need to be careful of what Germany is planning because they might want to take us over now. If they invade us we will have to join the allies for more support, and make sure to plan accordingly to where to put our troops. Our army is not strong so we will have to get more resources from other countries to allow us to make our army stronger.

U.S.S.R. 2 1940

On day 2 we attacked Finland with 750 troops versus 250 and we lost. One of our objectives was to take over Finland, but they were able to defeat us with a lot less troops. We are still waiting for Germany to attack us and trying to put our troops in the right place. It will be hard for us to take over any land because our army is weak. We have a better advantage of defending against attacks because of our geographical advantage over the other countries. 

U.S.S.R. 2 1941

In 1941 we were still concerned about Germany and Japan. We know that both of these countries want to attack us, and this is part of their objectives. We are going to attack 3 small countries because it is part of their objectives. We want to take over land owned by Egypt because there are resources there. Great Britain has troops down there, and we are still neutral. We are considering joining the axis powers if Germany doesn’t attack us. We want to get resources from Japan because they are gaining a lot in their battles. If we convince them to give some of their resources, the army will get stronger.  

U.S.S.R. 2 1942

In 1942 we joined the axis powers. The reason we joined the axis powers is because Germany didn’t attack us. Another reason for our thinking is if we help them, then Germany won’t attack us. We know we wouldn’t be able to defend against Germany. One of our objectives was to take over Finland, which we were able to do. They were weak from a war against Germany so we were able to defeat them. With us taking over most of the coast it will be hard for the allies to bring enough troops to take over what they have lost. 

U.S.S.R. 2 1943

Since we joined the allies we attacked Iran because Great Britain only had 50 troops in there. Our reason to attack this was because there were resources we could use there. We started to move our troops to help Germany, but didn’t move many because Germany still might attack us. Just to be cautious we wanted to be prepared for Germany to backstab us at any point. We have been able to take over a lot of land because the allied troops are spread out. 

U.S.S.R. 2 1944

Our plan in 1944 was to take over Alaska and Hawaii with Japan. The United States doesn’t have many troops over there, and it focuses all of their attention in the north sea zone. We have taken over Sweden but Norway because there are some American troops in there. We won’t be able to take over Norway because we don’t have enough troops to take down the American troops. Our plan is to continue to keep taking over land towards Egypt. There are no troops there to stop us so all of the land will be ours. 

U.S.S.R. 2 1945

In 1945 we are planning on getting attacked by America. We don’t know where America is going so we put troops in areas where we think they might attack us. We moved troops to P1 of Poland to help Germany out because their troops are low. With this being the last year of war they can’t do much to gain back more territory from them. Great Britain tried to take over Denmark, but we were able to help defend by sending our navy with troops.

Student Journal: Cold War Simulation, Soviet Union

Orientation Day:

Initial Thoughts: We currently have Soviet Union citizens leaving our country, we will not have that because I don’t want them being corrupted by these capitalist countries. We will not be losing our citizens today.

Strategy: I plan on attacking Turkey to start off the war. This is because they have 2 nuclear missiles there and we need to shut that off right away. We have now begun to move troops into other countries in order to prepare for war in the other countries. 

Day 1:

Thoughts: NATO has now moved into defcon 4, once they get to defcon 2 we plan to activate our launch on warning in order to scare NATO into not launching. By then we hope to have a lot of their missiles deactivated so that if they do launch, not a lot will happen to our country but a lot will happen to theirs. NATO has begun to attack East Germany, this is a big mistake on their part.  We activated Launch on warning because they have moved to Defcon 2. 

Strategy: We have now begun to defend East Germany from the attack from NATO. They won this battle but with a big loss, we will attack them in order to get revenge. We also plan on taking out Greece in order to have easy attack access into Italy. We see that they dont have a lot of troops, this will be an easy win. NATO has now begun to move troops into west Germany, this will make the battle a little harder but we will still proveil. We have won the battle against greece with very minimal losses.  Our attack on Greece, East Germany, and Yugoslavia has been successful and our chances of victory over Europe are looking better.  Right now we are attacking Italy and we have won.  

Day 2:

Thoughts: We know that NATO is on defcon 2 and that they are most likely going to launch their missiles today. We hope to deactivate as many as we can so that the damage dealt to our country is very minimal. We were really hoping to take over Britain as well as France today but we might only be able to get to France before the missiles are launched. Right now, NATO is taking over Cuba which gets rid of our secret missiles stationed in Cuba. Strategy: Today we plan on taking over France and ensuring our hold on France. They have launched their tactics on west Germany and Italy, taking out a lot of our troops, but we still have a very good chance of winning this battle. I don’t know what to do at this point because I know that if I move troops forward then they will just use more tactical nukes to take out our troops. We only moved troops this time because we didn’t want to lose any more troops to battle. We are waiting for their advancement so we can take them out with tactical nukes. They are beginning to move their troops into west Germany, but we will tactical nuke them in order to keep them on their side. We moved troops into Norway because we wanted to be able to take over Denmark from Norway if we are able to do that. I am going to send all of the troops I can from Norway into Denmark to try and take out those troops. We found ourselves in a stalemate, so we are just going to send our nukes

World War II Simulation Student Journal: Germany

1938 – Hitler and Moussilini are incredibly powerful as they have allied with each other. Stalin has created a pact with Hitler as well so they do not fight each other. Us and Great Britian need to be patient as to wait for the U.S. to fortify eventually. As soon as we have waited successfully we will try to penetrate Germany. Right now, we need to stand our ground. We need to attain as many allies as we can to strategically weave through the German ideology. The Soviet Union will be at their heels as well. We will need to be strong, and knowing Germany, they will stop at nothing to try and take over any land. 

1939 – During this time, the Italian try to negotiate a Treaty in which they can take North East Africa as long as they do not fight the Allies. This was discussed with us, France. We should’ve taken the deal because now he may try to attack the French. Germany invaded P1 in Poland. Poland was incredibly vulnerable considering the Soviets are Nuetral at this point, so they can’t help out the Polish. At this point, the Axis were attacking everything, but maybe not what the Allies expected them to attack. Japan attacked the Dutch East Indies, which was where some of our rubber came from. Germany decided to attack the other side of Poland as well, P2. Japan attacked French Indo Africa as well. 

1940 – We are under attack! The Germans and Italian attacked us and took a lot of casualties. Italy is still being stubborn but hopefully we can ally with them soon. They should ally with us once we figure out how to weaken the Germans. The Americans are still thinking about joining, but they haven’t been attacked yet. Japan is very strong so we need to find a way to rely on the U.S. to eventually join. At this time, this was Japan’s chance to attack and try to take down China. The Slovakian troops came and fortified the Chinese so it made it harder for the Japanese to penetrate the mainland, but they still did significant damage.

1941 – It was now the Soviet’s turn to make moves. First, they took Manchukuo with an incredible amount of troops. With a low army rating, against the Japanese, they would suffer several several casualties. Then they made their way around Japan to their countries that were undefended and vulnerable. They eventually will try and take more, but its tough against the strong Japanese. The British needs to take the border countries of Egypt, Arabia, etc. The USSR wanted to expand their land, so they attacked Finland. Germany decided they needed to get the Soviets back. They decided to invade Romania, and eventually took it. 

1942 – Albania and Greece were on Italy’s mind during 1942. They wanted to go from the ground up, taking small countries. They took Yugoslavia momentarily. Bulgaria came and helped them out. Germany invaded Denmark as well. The British stunned Germany so they couldn’t fortify and Latvia stunned Germany. The allies moved 1 of Lithuania’s troop to East Prussia to take the territory. The we stunned the German’s mainland so no fortifications as well. China then stunned India so they couldn’t reinforce their fierce Japanese troops. China did the same thing to South Central China as well there Japan had previously invaded. The Netherlands took their troop and attained the West Pecific region of Japan as well. The USA grabbed Burma later, which has most all the rubber in the simulation. 

1943 – At this point, Germany seems to be the most passive country in the Simulation, which is incredibly stupid on Germany’s part. Another dabocle that took place was that Italy was still irritated with the French because they had not accepted their deal they had given the French. They soon attacked the border country of French North Africa, and tried to take the land the French had denied the Italian in their dead deal. The British came in and reinforced, preventing the Italian to take over the land. Italy was pretty much a one man show, and barely had any other troop anywhere else besides their mainland. This was also the year Japan was required in their objectives to attack the U.S. This was great news to the allies because they knew the Americans would join us if their were attacked by the Axis. This was such a good sign for the allies because the Americans were incredibly strong. They were the only country that could mobilize their troops, so eventually, they moved their troop into France through their allied Navies: Great Britian, us(France), and even the Netherlands.  

1944 – This year, Hawaii, the small territory which the Japanese had taken over momentarily, needed to be taken back the U.S., according to the Prime Minister. They  won with a slight edge of 8 to spare. On the other side of the map, the Allies planned an attack to take back Belgium. We first stunned Germany so they were unable to reinforce. There was other stunning going on as well so the allies could fully prevent the Axis from reinforcing anything. We figured that we’d take the American troops that we had in France, which were shipped from the U.S. with the allied Navies, to Belgium accompanying the British and French attacking troop. The Nazis were incredibly outnumbers, having not even 1000 troops to defend. We sent everything we had, and soon enough, we had take Belgium back.  

1945 – This last year, the was a lot of fortifications, and switching sides. First, the Italians decided they should join the allies, because there was nothing for them with the Axis. There was a lot of trading in between battles. First off, the allies took everything they had to Belgium. They stacked everything up, awaiting the stunning, and readiness of the rest of the allies. Soon almost every ally besides the Soviets were making their way into the mainland of Germany. The allies designed the attack to minimalize the German strength. This did that exaxct trick, creating an insane German decrease in troops. An incredible amount of casualties, and the only thing left in the large battler was barely any Germans left. The Axis decided they wanted a little more land before resigning from the turn, so they took small portion of the Eastern Soviet land before refraining from any other war. This ended the turn, and the simulation altogether. World War 2 Simulation
