An Empire Like No Other
It was a dark night in Rome. Having spent the past few hours drinking to celebrate the arrival of 1936 and invasion of Ethiopia, Mussolini lay on his bed, still woozy from the effects of one too many glasses of wine. As he drifted between the light of the world and the dark of the dream he heard a voice talking to him, urging him.
“You must unify the Americas under one leadership,” it said mystically.
Mussolini pondered this for a moment, then sat bolt upright.
“What a stupid idea,” he laughed groggily, “I have a better one!” He stumbled over to a table and grabbed a pen and started rapidly scrawling on a world map that happened to be lying around.
“I always wanted to recreate the Roman Empire,” he chuckled, “but that isn’t the only one I can emulate!”
The following morning, his assistants snuck into his room quietly. They didn’t want to wake him lest they be caught in a hangover-driven fury. They found this on his table:
Assuming that it was his strategy for the coming years, they took it with them and began to implement it…

Hello, and welcome to my second AAR, An Empire Like No Other. I guess its time for me to outline what my intentions are.
Its quite simple really; I intend to replace the British Empire with an Italian one. My primary targets for this AAR are British holdings in the Middle East, Africa and India as well as the Commonwealth countries, specifically those in Asia and the Mid-East. If things go really well I may go after Canada, British holdings in the Americas and Pacific or even the British Isles themselves. Also, if I have the time and resources I’ll help Germany deal with the Soviets.
The version is DD 1.2, settings are Normal/Aggressive.
So it begins! Well…tomorrow actually since its 11 PM here and I don’t want to start this while so tired. See you then!
