CAT WAR – Alternate USA AAR
Where women rule the planet, and males are sidekicks at best.
Narrative AAR with gameplay very much in the background.
Using my own CatWar mod for Doomsday with female ministers and leaders and about 500 custom events.
This is a USA 1936 AAR with HOI2 1.3, setting hard, aggressive.
The AAR was started as an HOI 1 AAR, but I have decided to restart it as HOI 2, even if I had to let go of my Mod for HOI 1.
First parts will largely be the same, only the directly ingame related parts will be changed.
I hope you enjoy.
Prologue - A world, both alien and alike
“The authress tells a most ridiculous story about a male empire rising to power in the world by conquering the matriarchalic countries around it. An interesting and new concept, but without any touch to reality. Males fighting and killing ranks together with green Mars-girls landing in New York. At least the novel is well written, but Lady Johnson should stick to fantastic stories about our Amazon-ancestresses, for which she is famous. You should spare your 3,95 $ for a more worthwhile read instead...”

“So, and what would happen, if all these males leave kitchen and lovenest and start to work in the factories and shops around the country? I dont speak about the social issues and the morale, I leave this to social scientists and the priestresses. No, I speak about the jobs that will be lost for our struggling girls. Will you, my dear, go out to General Motors and declare the hard working chicks there that they will loose their job to a MALE? This country recovers from a recession, as I like to remind you. Millions of males swarming the job market will be disastrous for our economy. And by the way, which boy would like to do that? I tell you, MY husband wont, and my two sons are looking forward to marrying and raising the children my daughters-in-law will proudly deliver. And so it should be, as any american lady of decent education should know and feel alike...”
Congresswoman Lady Eve Sumers of Illinois, in a radio-talkshow on CBS, December 3rd, 1935
“Mother Earth, the good goddess,
looks with kindness on her children,
as long as we treat her with kindness,
for she who rapes the earth,
rapes the goddess herself,
and shall not find eaternal peace.”

“While the championship rests during winter, the teams lick their wounds or cheerish their success. In Eastern Division, the Miami Pantheresses again dominated the first part of the season, while in Western D., the Seattle Chicks and the Los Angeles Lionesses showed a tight fight for supremacy. Let us recall the great games of the season so far. There can be no doubt, the National Hockey League shows the best hockey anywhere in the world. Charlotte, let us take a closer look on the new youngster of Miami, the black Valerie Feathers. She has scored 42 goals in 18 games, right? – Yeah, Priss, and she will become a real star soon. I have not seen this precision in passes and this coolness in front of the enemy goaless since Tessa Palmer in the Twenties. – Wait, Charlotte, before we get further into this, I have an information for our listeneresses. Dear ladies, do you know that Homestead refrigerators use much less energy than any other product on the market? Homestead refrigerators...”

“DUCA MUSSOLINI DECLARES WAR ON ETHOPIA
The italian head of state, Duca Greta Mussolini, has declared a state of war between the queendom of Italy and Ethopia, the only country in Africa not in colonial possession, but governed by the black people themselves. The democratic community is shocked by this unprovoked assault. In a radio statement, Presidenta Franka Delana Roosevelt condemmed the aggression in very clear words. Republican leadress Miranda Landon warns the administration not to involve the US in foreign affairs. Quote: The last war has brought us nothing but death and misery, this time our chicks must stay home.
Military analysts believe Ethiopia a ripe fruit before the italian onslaught. Fascist Italy has enlarged and modernised its army and air force in recent years, while ethiopian forces consist largely of tribal warrioresses with handguns at best...”
The International Heraldress Tribune, December 17th, 1935
With 3 infantry- and 1 cavalry division, the US Army is totally inadequate to deal with any threat to our security from foreign countries. With Germany, Italy and Japan in fascists hands and pursuing imperialistic goals, a future threat to the US is at least possible, if not likely. Add to this the fascist movements in Brasil and, last but not least, in Mexiko, right at our border, we strongly recommend to strengthen the army to a level which will at least deliver a sceleton to build further strength in case of an emergency. We propose the commission of 9 additional infantry-divisions and 3 specialised mountain-divisions during 1936.”
