-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Italy totally lucked out with the reduced EAI, bonus support and France's RE, so finally gets into Africa nearly 3 years late. The Allies didn't bother bluffing as the potential loss of support next turn would help Germany with future aggressions. Russia starts to mobilise, but it's too little, too late.

Sooner or later there's going to be war, the Western forces are just about mobilised and everyone's running out of money to fund the armies...
