Thread: Vive L'Empereur: The Third French Empire - a National France Kaiserreich AAR

  1. #161
    In the meantime, I'm having something of a technical issue that I hope someone might be able to assist me with: I really likes the skin I used early on in the TL but I can't seem to find a version of it for Kaiserreich 1.2 so I'm stuck with one which leaves me with the Vichy France background. And that rankles with my historical accuracy sensibilities So, anyone know how I can get the original skin back?

    Ending the Rebellion

    With the Guineans now the only remaining threat, Delestraint and his men paused only to reinforce the Saharan garrisons before pushing south towards the coast. With the First Army now returning to Algiers, it would be up to Delestraintís mobile infantry and the colonial militia to take on the Guineans alone.



    Though the colonial militia succeeded in retaking Labe from the rebels by mid-July, and beating off a counter-attack, the war with the rebels was far from over.



    However, Delestraint and his reinforcements would not arrive for a while, which gave the rebels a window in which to act. And act they did, launching an offensive which saw them occupying Kayes by the 21st.



    However, by the end of July, Delestraint arrived and ordered the colonial militoa to attack the rebels in Kayes from Labe while his troops launched an offensive from the north.



    Caught in a pincer movement, the soldiers of the self-proclaimed Guinean Liberation Army were forced to withdraw after a series of battles and skirmishes lasting six days.



    Arriving at the same time as the victory was the welcome news that, after weeks of secret negotiations, the re-elected government of South Africa had re-entered the entente, providing a welcome boost to morale in Algiers, Ottawa, Canberra and Delhi.



    However, a few days later, disturbing news arrived from the Middle East, where the Ottoman Empire was disintegrating amidst the Great Arab Revolt.



    These international events prompted the arrival in Dakar of a Royal Canadian Air Force squadron to help strengthen the Entente in the region. Their planes were soon put to good use when Delestraint launched a new offensive, pursuing the retreating Guinean troops.



    Though the rebels attempted to regroup, aerial superiority and support from the colonial militia allowed the mobile infantry to simply role over the Guineans.





    However, despite Delestraintís was troops killing or force the surrender of a divisionís worth of rebels, progress would be slow for much of the rest of the year as, though the way to the coast was now open, poor infrastructure would prevent the arrival of French troops in Ziguinchor until the end of October.

    Meanwhile, following the breaking away of Cyprus and Libya, and several military defeats, the Ottomans were forced to sign the Treaty of Jerusalem on October the 24th, giving up much of their land to Egypt and Hashemite Arabia.



    This was to prove the death blow for the Ottoman Empire as, infuriated by the national humiliation at the hands of the Arab Block, elements of the military led a coup, establishing a new Republic of Turkey Ė a nation whose future would become deeply entwined with the French Empire.



    As far as the Empire itself was concerned, the only item of interest was that the newly independent Libya presented a weak neighbour on its borders should expansion ever be desired. In the meantime, however, the Emperor and De Gaulle alike were focusing their attention on the capital of the Guinean rebels, Conakry, where French forces had launched their final attack on the enemy.



    Outnumbered, poorly supplied and surrounded, the Guineans were swiftly beaten and the French army announced that they had fully regained control of the city by the 29th of December. New Yearís Day in Conarky would be marked with the mass hanging of the rebel leadership.



    In Algiers, however, the day was marked with fireworks and celebration.

    For, though it had seemed at times though the country had been on the verge of disintegrating, the empire had ultimately won through the fires of rebellion of í38 and proved that it had staying power.

    Thanks very much! I've been following Sweet Home Manitoba and I have to say that I really love the premise of it. I'm still making my way through it but I can't wait to fully catch up with it.

    And don't worry - the Empire will face existential crises in the future but rebels won't be one of them

    It starts with the question, "what if Germany won WW1" and builds a world based on that answer. It is far and away the best(most fun) mod out at this time.
    "If you love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; may your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

    Not only does it imagine what happened if the Germans won WW1, it also throws in socialist (syndicalist in this timeline) revolutions in France, Britain and Italy, a defeat of the Bolsheviks in Russia and the Germans setting up a restored Qing Empire in China. Also, Canada becomes a superpower (well, ish, anyway).

    *sheepishly*

    Sorry for no update this weekend - I'm afraid I kind of got caught up in Crusader Kings II (it's awesome). But I've got an update coming mid week with a bit of luck.
