We played another turn today.
Weather was(modified): 11, 4, 1
3 axis impulses 2 allied initiative shifted to +1 allied.
Us entry: chit to germany and repair western allied ships was chosen (no tension) followed by lend lease to western allies which did result in tension.
Germans start with alligning Iraq, taking Kuwait with the cav. Rail moving von Leeb an inf and mil ot Bulgaria allowed the slow advance there. The western front is without a hq at the moment!
Italy killed the Greek os corps on the resource. In the following impulse Greece position turned would sour very quickly. This is a success I could really use at the moment.
Japan positioned 2 fleets and shuffled some inf in the first impulse.
Cw bring montgomery to france (3 CW hq are in France/Belgium now!) and an indian inf to suez.
USSR shuffle some units.
Weather turend decent enough for an attack. The turks attacked near Suez and a 2 ended the lifes of the syrian territorial and the turkish cav. End of the campaign there for this turn.
The bulgarians now in supply by Leeb advanced and took salonika with a little luck and massive air en navel support. Greece will fall quickly now. 1 maybe 2 turns, so before the start of any summer offensives.
Italian subs sink the hellas near St Vincent, western med sees 2 Italian cruisers dmg'ed vs q british cruiserd damaged and 1 convoy point sunk. Eastern med sees 1 italian cruiser damaged and convoy sunk
In the pacific fhe crew of the eagle have the shock of their life when they get bombed in their port (bombay). First sunk turned into bottomed but the third sunk made an end to the carrier. The terror and an oiler follow the eagle to the bottom of the sea.
Rabaul and Colombo fall unoposed with Rangoon suffering a 10-1 atttack. Kuala lumper goes down on a 5-1 +1 attack. US entry goes from 2 to 5 chits and war which was so far away will now be unavoidable.
CW responds with a navel to reposition its fleets. Other allied moves are just minor readjustments of their positions.
Then weather turns fine with a 1! Germany misses some groundstrikes in the east and decide to only attack sevastapol. 4-1 assault what could go wrong... 2 rolled so it falls but the breslau militia and a cav corps are whiped out.
In the west some stukas fight with the french airforce escorted by to fighters. Both get through no losses on either side. 2 of the three units get flipped and the following 3-1 +3 blitz only gets a R. The bridge head of the french into Germany however is cut to to 1 hex now.
Japan prepares its forces near Cylon for new operations...
Turn ends with a 5 and does so, preventing a french counter attack. The black sea is now clear of all Russian ports so the russian fleet will dissapear within a few months.
