WW2 Tactics - Strategic World December 1941
The world is at war!
Decades ago, 2 rival factions, the Entente and the Central Powers, clashed together in the Americas, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, the Pacific and Asia. Due to the Entente victory, many empires fell, new societies arose and the world became wrought with torment and devastation left by the Great War. Now, the world has been split into 2 major factions once again, the Allies and the Axis Powers.
------------------------------------North African Theatre
Generalfeldmarschall Erwin Rommel, a prominent German commander, is leading the Axis Powers in the North African Front alongside Italian commander Messe, while Ricardo controls the Navy and oversees the Congo Campaign. Free French Commander Charles de Gaulle, alongside General Alexander and General Patton of Britain and America respectively, are leading Allied forces in this African theatre. Tensions are high there, with the strong and determined Axis push. But just how long can the limited resources Hitler has granted to Rommel last?Eastern Front
Soviet Generals Rokossovski and Zhukov are pushed to their last straws. German forces ( mixed with Finns, Romanians, Hungarians, Slovakians and Italians ) are under the command of Manstein, Mannerheim, Dumitrescu and Guderian are tasked to the limit as well. The planned Battle of Leningrad has been put on hold again
for the much more valued Battle of Moscow. The Mixed Forces have united under the banner of the " 6th Army " and are planning to make a fatal push into Stalingrad to control the oil fields of the Caucasus ( and demoralize the Soviet war efforts as the city bears the Secretary General's name ). Can the Siberian reinforcements arrive in time? Will the German forces be equipped with proper Winter equipment?Western Front
Hectic doesn't begin
to describe things. The Eastern Front has put a huge tax on German coastal defence forces, and Allied forces are continuing to win the important skirmishes in the Battle of the Atlantic. How long can Germany last until Operation Sledgehammer crushes their only odds? Can Generals Model, Leeb and Kleist make a comeback? Or will Weygand, Simonds, Eisenhower and Montgomery take the initiative?Asian Theatre
Wow. Mountbatten is having a bad day today. Japanese forces under Seigeyoshi, Shunroku and Yamashita have made major progress, taking Burman, China and Manchuria respectively. General Vasilevsky, Li, Zhu and Mountbatten will have to co-ordinate if they hope of taking on the Japanese forces. Will China be liberated? Will Indochina suffer another century of Imperialism? Will Russia regain their glory after the humiliating defeat in the Russo-Japanese War?Pacific Theatre
Japan has been making many territorial gains overtime. Starting in 1933, they were at war with China ( that is, both the PRC and ROC ) and were making major progress. They were making many important gains in the Pacific. After a crushing defeat at Singapore , and the Netherlands' catastrophic losses in the Oceania, Europe was kicked out of the Pacific by Japan. But it wasn't enough for Hideki Tojo. Against the Emperor's will, Tojo declared war on America ( the note was about a MONTH late.. fail ) and the Pearl Harbor has been bombed ( but the carriers weren't there ... epic
fail ). With the Sleeping Giant awoken, Allied forces under Crace, Halsey, Mountbatten, Fleming and Blamey are up against the very prominent Japanese commanders Yamamoto, Osami, Nanbu, Jisaburo and Kuribayashi. Will Japan's Zeros lead the way? Or will Halsey's bold maneuvering win the day?
