Turn 2

Kossuth as axis: The Poles are surrounded in Warsaw but Warsaw still hangs on and is reinforced. A Polish corps moves into an empty Konigsberg and holds out there.

In the west the German's attack the Low Countries but amazingly the stubborn Dutch and Belgiums hold out. The Corps is down to 1 point, but it holds. The British move into Brussels and counter attack with two French armies to destroy a weakened German corps. In the Atlantic one sub is found and sunk.

CURRY AS AXIS : Denmark attacked. A large land force including two armor attacks Poland and takes Warsaw also killing another Polish unit. the Poles have had enough and surrender.

In the west the Germans attack the LC and take Brussels with a corps. The LC surrender.

Next Round

CURRY AXIS - Sea battle around Denmark. A German Sub attacks a British Carrier and knocks it down to 5. Then they say their prayers and get ready to die the next turn. The Germans transfer the troops from the Polish front, but also attack and kill off one French army. But do not advance yet into France.

KOSSUTH AXIS - The Germans attack Warsaw with all they have and it falls. But amazingly Poland will not surrender. They still hold out in Konigsberg and southeast Poland. In the west Denmark is attacked. The Germans also concentrate on a full strength Dutch Corps that has advanced all the way to the outskirts of Hamburg. It stays alive at 1 point and flees into Denmark. The French and British consolidate their lines.

NEXT ROUND

CURRY AXIS: Turn 6/7.

The Brit's send a heavy Naval force into the Baltic. The Germans make their first key mistake and are not ready, the Brits sink on cruiser and damage another. However, the sub that did half damage to the carrier dives and then limps away still alive. The Brit's also sent the French allies help in the way of an army and a corps landing in France. A French HQ is seen in Paris. The Germans go after the key ardenese hex and attack it. Its a hard fight with heavy losses but they destory the French army there and take the hex with a corps. The Germans subs are still free in the atlantic. It appears to the Germans that the allies are disbanding the French fleet and sending a massive British fleet into the Baltic. We will see if that is true.

KOSSUTH AXIS: Turn 7/8

The Dutch corps is easily destroyed in Denmark and Copenhagen is worn down in another attack. The Germans attack Brussels and destroy the French army that held it. But do not take the city. The allies retake the city sending another French army into Brussels and counter attack with the Brits destorying a German army. It's Dec 10, 1939.

NEXT ROUND

KOSSUTH AXIS: Denmark almost taken. Germans attack hex infront of Brussels, wear it down but cannot destroy it and take Denmark at the same time. They have to now attack over the river. The allies reinforce the hex in their turn.

CURRY AXIS: The allies counter attack and destroy the German corps that took the ardenese. But the Germans again counter attack and destroy the british corps that retook the arden and retake it again. They also wear down a French corps. But Denmark holds out with a large British fleet surrounding it. However, the axis subs keep taking MPP points away from the Brits each turn out in the atlantic.

NEXT ROUND

CURRY AXIS: Turn 10/11 It's a repeat in the arden. The allies kill off the German unit and retake it. Then the axis kill off the allies, but this time dont take it. The Surprise is that Italy joins the war. The allies are ready for them and have three corps lined up in southern France. But how will this affect the game now?

KOSSUTH AXIS: Turn 11/12 Denmark falls to the axis. The Canadians hold the River hex and the Germans attack it and try to cross but the Canadian army holds it. Then reinforced.

NEXT ROUND:

KOSSUTH AXIS: Turns 13/14 April 1941.

Naval battle just north of Denmark, one British BB is sunk. Allies strike back and knock a cruiser down to 1. The Germans attack the Canadian army again and try to cross the river, again fail as those Canadians hold on to that hex.

CURRY AXIS: Turn 12/13 March 13th, 1940 The Axis destroy one French corps on the front line, but do not advance and the line holds the same. Axis also bomb Copenhagen with air power. In the atlantic German subs laying at the west end of the channel find an entire Canadian army trying to cross the atlantic and destroy it. And finally a British Carrier is sunk trying to intercept German air. The Italian front is quiet as the Italians cannot break through the mountain passes.

NEXT ROUND

CURRY AXIS: Turn 14/15 The allies counter attack the German armor unit that was used last turn, knock it down to 2. In a last effort to kill the armor a British carrier ties to kill it off but is interecepted by a strong luftwafe and is instead killed off itself. The armor suvives, barely. The Germans withdraw the armor and counter attack destroying a French army but the lines remain the same along the FrenchLC line. In the Med the Brits come out of hiding and attack the Itlaian corps that is ready to land on Malta, but the two ships, a BB and a Cruiser cant kill it but knock it down to a 2. The Itailians still take Malta and the Italian Navy which is ready attacks the British ships sinking the BB and damaging the Crusiser.

This is a bloodly battle all around in both matches.

KOSSUTH AXIS Turn 15/16 The Germans attack the Canadians again and with strong air support finally destroy the Canadians and advance an armor unit accross the river. The allies strike back and counter attack destroying that armor unit and sending a British corps to hold the key hex.

NEXT ROUND

CURRY AXIS: Turns 16/17 Surprise, the French syrian forces surprise the ITalians and land in Italy and take Bari. The ITalians counter and take Algiers. In the fighting up north a British ship is killed, and a British army is killed in France. But the line remains the same.

KOSSUTH AXIS: Turns 17/18 The Germans again cross the river only to be destroyed and the allies take the key river hex. Same story, Germans kill a corp and cross, allies counter and kill the German army and retake the hex with a corps, this time Canadaians.

Writing up a pair of games simultaneously -- this might be a first! -- usually it's done in separate Threads, but this is fine as well, it's enjoyable reading.

-- BTW, sorry for jumping in, will refrain from further intrusions till you guys finish up.

Same old same old defensive battle

CURRY AXIS - Brits lose a cruiser, holds line against France, attack Copenhagen, what is left of British fleet leave the baltic.

KOSSUTH AXIS - Germans take the river hex and hold it. Can they advance now? Allies do not counter attack but reinforce instead.

Both sides worn down

That's all the playing for now, will have to continue later. This is either two very good defensive players or two players that suck at offense. I'm afraid I am one of the players that sucks as offense. But we are an equal match and its sure fun. smile.gif :cool:

I think we are bad offensive players. Ok i had some bad luck with the LC, but i am sure it would not have changed much, if i took it on the first turn. Curry did a slightly better conquest of poland.

So far the games is a draw, but curry are in the upper hand and will winn both games in the long run :(

But fun it is :D

NEXT ROUND

CURRY AXIS: Turns 30/31

The Italians destroy the lone ranger British corps in Italy. It seems the British left most of their Med holdings and sent them to France in an all out effort to protect Paris. In France The Germans drive continues another hex forward this time with armor destorying another corps in the way and damaging another. The German Navy comes out of no where and enters the channel and attacks a British corps waiting to unload along the French coast knocking it down to a 6.

Again all quiet on the western front. The western allies now are worried as to what the axis is planning. Quiet for two turn.

NEXT ROUND

CURRY AXIS: Turns 32/33

Alot happened this turn. The Germans landed a weakened Army along the norhern coast of France. No British fleet or air to stop them. It linked up with the German land forces that have moved along the coast of France along the channel. A German unit has moved next to Paris, directly north of it. Two allied corps were destroyed. The Italians landed next to Mar and have attacked Mar from that way. The Italians have also supported the Germans in France taking up garrison roles to allow the Germans to move its forces into northern France. In the channel the British kill off the last German sub but the last Carrier is also attacked by the German cruiser and both are damaged. The Italians also have a unit next to the port of Brest ready to land. The allies are weaker now and do not look like they can hold out much longer.

KOSSUTH AXIS: Again all seems quiet. The allies hit Copenhagen with Naval units but that is all.
