Thread: Courage Wolf Takes On the World: An Italy AAR

  1. #1

    Courage Wolf Takes On the World: An Italy AAR (Warning: High Screenshot Density)

    Courage Wolf Takes On the World: An Italy AAR


    Nation: Italy
    Version: 1.2 Vanilla
    Scenario: 1936 GC
    Difficulty: Normal

    House Rules:
    • No puppeting.
    • No alliances.
    • No mercy.

    Hopefully I can keep this one going (and hopefully people aren't tired of Italy AARs by now). It will be ridiculous gamey, limited only by my inexperience, laziness, and impatience (I expect to play most of it either paused or at max speed).

    Note: Most Courage Wolf images are not by me. Check URLs if you are concerned.

    I can never get tired of Italian aars! Viva ItaliaaR!

    Do you have any specific goals and stragegies in mind? If you haven't already been following it, I thoroughly recommend Myth's Explorations of Strategy - Italy at War aar to you http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/...d.php?t=416164 - its taught me a great deal for my own Italian games.

    Does no alliances also mean no factions? That'd certainly make Italy a bit harder. I'll keep an eye on this!

    1 January 1936: An Introduction; Laws

    I am COURAGE WOLF.

    I am from a proud family of wolves. Every now and then we try to take over the world. For example, nearly twenty-seven centuries ago, my cousin raised two humans, Romulus and Remus, to take over the world for us. Over a period of centuries, they and their successors got pretty close:

    But in the end they failed.

    This time I've decided to take things into my own paws. You see, I am secretly the King of Italy:

    I don't think Italy would be comfortable knowing that they are being ruled by a wolf... yet. So, for now, this disguise shall serve.

    But that doesn't mean I can't prepare Italy for glory under the leadership of COURAGE WOLF. So, all propaganda will bear my true countenance.

    And look at that: we are at war. Just the way I like it. As such, I make my first decree of 1936:

    Caption: Awesome/Is mandatory

    And so it was.

    (Screenshot of laws, unfortunately lost to time.)

    I'll be sure to read over it again. As for goals and strategies, well, you'll see soon enough (provided I have time to keep updating >_>)

    13 Feburary 1936: Organization, Trading, and Production

    Italy's military is a mess. After calling a general meeting of all air and naval assets, and restructuring of the land command structure, I have something that makes sense:

    Too bad our leaders are not very skilled. Not for long though.

    Our land forces composition is getting a major overhaul. Namely, there is no more separation between civilian and military. I have disbanded all Infantry, Mountaineer, and Motorized divisions. Instead, I am drafting everyone without discrimination. Every citizen must be a warrior.


    It will take some time for the people of Italy to adjust.

    Note also that I am trading massive amounts of supplies in order to get resources.

    But some propaganda should help them along.

    Caption: Your fists/Never run out of ammo

    Caption: Bring a knife to a gun fight/Win

    A waste of human life, you say? You underestimate the power of modern medicine.



    Caption: Go forth/You are invincible

    (Note: In 1.2 this tech was bugged to be 100x as strong as intended.)

    Despite the time spent on reorganization, the war is going well.


    Thanks in no small part to our excellent NCOs.

    WC with militia? That's going to take some heavy investment into miltia techs. Even then, I doubt it can be done by a mere mortal ...wolf.

    However great my doubts may be, I'd like to wish you good luck. I would still love to see you accomplish this!

    I don't know if I can pull it off either (if nothing else, 12 years is not too much time). It remains to be seen whether the low cost, supply and officer requirements, and frontage of Militia will be able to make up for their poor Hard Attack, Toughness, and speed. Of course there are also the other branches of the military, though land comes first.

    30 March 1936: Intelligence

    My forces continue to advance in Ethiopia:


    But it's never too early to start thinking about future conquests. First, however, I have to get the populace behind me:




    It also helps to keep my enemies divided:

    17 August 1936: The Spanish Civil War

    On 17 August, the Spanish Civil War breaks out.

    Caption: More fighting/Hells yeah

    I celebrate by sending three infantry brigades to Nationalist Spain... despite not owning any.


    Unfortunately I can't go over there directly yet.


    So, for the time being I use Ethiopia for target practice.

    20 March 1937: End of the Spanish Civil War

    On 20 March 1937, the Nationalists were defeated by the Republicans.

    Still using Ethiopia as a punching bag.


    The experience is paying off.



    I have plenty of Militia now.


    But nothing to use them on yet.

    Those propaganda posters are AWESOME.

    I think I have a new favorite AAR

    24 September 1938: The Last Days of Spain; Technology

    The beginning was slow, but after dumping 62 divisions into Spain, the pace picked up nicely. I was in Madrid by the end of September.


    Interestingly, while they used French territory to move troops, they have not used Call to Arms, and none of the Allies have declared war on me.

    Caption: That's what you get / For trusting your allies

    Soon...


    Finest militia in the world.
