After reading countless HoI3 AARs and playing for about 6 months, I feel that my skill at this game has progressed far enough for me to attempt to write an AAR and not have it end in complete disaster. This being my first AAR, any help you guys can give me will be greatly appreciated. I'm sure that I do many things wrong so feel free to point out any mistakes that I make in as brutal a manner as you please.
Depending on how interested people are I'll try to put out an update every other day or so. So here we go:
Table of Contents
- I: War in the East
- II: The Sun Sets
- III: A New Era
- IV: The Naval Buildup
- V: Red Dawn
- VI: The World at War, Again
- VII: War at Sea
This will be an AAR about a post-WWII war between the Soviet Union and the Western Allies. I've always been interested in the Cold War and I haven't seen a huge number of AARs covering this period. I've also changed the end date to give me as much time as I need (this is the only modification/edit I've made).
I'm starting the AAR in late 1944, though I started this game at the 1936 scenario. The situation as of now is that the Germans have surrendered and the Japanese are on the way out. Germany, Italy, and the Balkans have been transformed in to Soviet puppet states along with Persia and Turkey. The Western Allies managed to liberate France, the Netherlands, and Belgium before the Soviet steamroller could get there so I won't have the continent all to myself.
Here's the situation in the Far East:
My goals for this game are as follows:
-Enter the war against Japan at the last possible moment and grab as much land as I can (preferably Indochina and maybe Korea)
-Complete a few IC runs. I lost a good deal of IC when I released Poland (for roleplay reasons)
-Construct a large and modern fleet to rival the British at least, if not the Americans
-Conquer the UK and America and spread the glorious People's Revolution to all the corners of the world!
