    At first I was not planning to do an AAR for this game, but the events so far are...amusing, and it's only April 1936.

    I invaded Bulgaria to secure more resources. Germany declared war on me, and Yugoslavia decleared war on Germany. Now France has declared war on Germany. This should be interesting.

    Germany is not doing very well at all.

    The Poland campaign provide much needed experience for my troops and Generals, but I need to prepare for my next move (Austria, via Hungary), so I am withdrawing from Germany.

    It's alright Musso, I don't really need the mod.
    I did have troops in Germany but I withdrew them.

    This is Europe now, my next stop is Greece, then after that Yugoslavia.

    Turkey is a tough nut to crack, I found. Lots of Mountains and Hills aid the defender. I'd go after Yugoslavia instead. Should be a good War against them.

    I have way too many games I am playing. COD World at War, Red Orchestra, MTW II: Kingdoms + Mods, Left 4 Dead, Fallout 3, and HOI II....not enough time! Will try to update my AARs this weekend.

    I called off the Turkey campaign and loaded another save, it seems Russia is guaranteeing their Independence.

    I'll go for Greece, I really need a Mediterranean base I have a BC in production and I want it to get some action.

    One BC isn't going to do much :) The Italians, for instance have well over 32 Ships, half of which are top-of-the-line. Not to mention the British Carrier Fleets. I still suggest Yugoslavia - your biggest threat in the region, gives you some good resources and IC, and good ports too. Albania afterwords will be like a walk in the park!

    Well the BC is for my Yugoslavia plan-I'm going to launch an amphibous invasion when I'm ready. :)

    Oh, and I'm allied with Britian anyway.

    I have an idea to attack Venezuala some day. Make myself an oil-superpower

    Yugoslavia is bad place to Amphibous assault. The one province on coast that isn't a Mountain is surrounded by them, making an inland approach much more difficult. You should be able to line up your forces to take the VP locations of Yugoslavia pretty quickly (Tanks/Cav to the West where the ground is more open, to roll up the flank and get the coastal VP). That way you can annex the country with out suffering out a bloody long war.

    Then amphibous assault Albania :)

    Young Padawan still has much to learn!

    Terrain should heavily factor into your battle plan. Never attempt seaborne invasion unless you can secure a large port too (for supplies).

    Mussolini, you said this would be a quick war. 4 months it took me. 4 months worth of Romanian deaths.
    :S!

    Just found the "full IC takeover" button. Now I have over 100 IC. ;)

    Oh yeah, Turkey DOW'd the UK but surrendered, so I get a cut. :)

    It is quick if you only move for their VP Provinces and bypass half their army :) Otherwise, I did say they are almost your equals! Congrats on free grab of turkey.

    The only problem is they had their entire army sitting on their VP provinces. :(

    Actually, I tried to invade Turkey but the USSR DOW'd me so I reloaded an earlier save. Besides, that time I was only aiming for Istanbul, this time I get a lot of land. :)

    Next is Greece and Albania (shouldn't be too hard) then Venezuela.
