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

With another civil war kicking off and another on the verge, the EAI wasn't going to go down anytime soon, making it hard for Germany to get Poland (which would probably start a war with the Allies anyway) and earlier starts favour the Axis. A weak Russia also helped bring the threshold down.

I'll do the VP and wrap-up another time, I'll also try and do the GW-AWAW conversion to see how different things are compared to the historical situation.
