Does the game end at outbreak of WW2 or include the entire WW2 up to 1945?
You play out your Second World War, although it needn't end in 1945 for any particular reason. Exhaustion of the powers is part of the mechanics of the game. The turn track goes to 1949-50, though we've never had a game make it that far.
Seeing Poland as a single-area state, how do you simulate partition of Poland & Romania by Germany & USSR?
Having neutral countries with more than one area proved to require too many rules. The section of Poland seized by the USSR was mostly swamp and useless. The section of Romania (Bessarabia) is insignificant at this scale of the game.
