    Will we see the New Roman Empire achieving what the old could never do, conquering Germania and incorporating it into its empire?

    I'm half expecting the Italian troops to start dressing up as Roman Centurions.

    With all this talk of dressing as Centurians, would it be possible to mod the unit counters (which ever are the things that when you zoom in and see a soldier or tank) to be dressed in a more "Roman" uniform?

    Or only the Generals do that. Then the minor officers can wear Decanus outfits and the enlisted men dressed like regular Legionaires.

    Chapter Thirty Three: How Did This Happen? (5/17/42 - 6/3/42)

    Hitler studied the maps and reviewed the reports. He could not understand how all this could be happening. His diseased mind was simply incapable of wrapping itself around the magnitude of his miscalculation. He called together all of his top generals for a tense brainstorming session.



    He would propose some grandiose scheme to reverse his fortune, and the generals were put in the unenviable position of having to explain to him why they simply did not have the military assets necessary to pull off his schemes. It was all his fault, of course. He had refused to listen to his advisors while the Empire grew in strength on his southern border. Then he refused to listen to them again when they told him that the Empire had grown too strong and could not be bullied while his armies were occupied in Russia. But none dared mention any of this to the Fuhrer. It was all their fault for failing to prepare for the contingencies created by his madness.



    Generals started disappearing in the night or on U-boats to South America, and Hitler started surrounding himself with a fanatical group of Fällschirmjager bodyguards. The Third Reich leadership had started to unravel.



    In the east, on May 25, 1942, after two months of hostilities, the Germans had established an adequate line of defense from the Russian front all the way to central Germany in the Saxony-Anhalt area. However, to the west of there, the Germans had no defense whatsoever. The Italian foot divisions under Gens. Scatinni, Roatta and Umberto Pricipe di Piemonte found themselves with an unimpeded march from Bavaria in the south into the Baden-Wurttemburg area and France beyond, and from Thuringia in the north into Hesse, North Rhine-Westphalia, and beyond. The Third Reich was suffering blows from which it would find it very difficult to recover.



    At the same time in southern France, the Germans had managed to maintain a solid line all along the front. However, the Italians had joined their two fronts, and due to the curvature of the front, they were able to launch numerous combined attacks and steadily push the front northwards. In fact, Mussolini was able to pull four marine division off the front line to reform an amphibious rapid deployment force in Marseilles.



    The Italian forces in western Turkey had attacked south, and by May 25, 1942, the Italians had driven the French out of Beirut and were mopping up the remainder of Syria.



    On May 27, 1942,one of Carboni’s mechanized divisions seized yet another major German urban center in Leipzig.



    On May 28, 1942, two Italian carrier task forces, one Italian battleship fleet and the transport flotilla loaded with four marine divisions appeared off of the North African coastline. With the battle cry, “Carthago Delenda Est!” the marines assaulted a French infantry division in Tunis.



    On June 3, 1942, the marines routed the French in Tunis.



    Petain had had enough.



    Then, for the second time in two years, and just like they had done to the British, the French abandoned their allies in the heat of battle. Petain agreed to allow all of the territory under his control to be absorbed into the New Roman Empire.

    Given a defeat of Germany, would you annex them, or puppet them so that the USSR loses all its gains in the east? And also kick the Allies out of Bordeaux?

    To the victor goes the spoils of war... However, in Poland and northern France, let's just say things get complicated.

    Well, France should definately be annexed, and the U.S. given military access to they can get their troops out of there. And then Poland should be puppeted, it's bad enough that you have some border with the SU, might as well keep as small of one as you can. That's just my opinion though.
