Any ideas please....
A little matter of 161 divisions to clear off Portugal. Of course one school of thought would be to leave them there because while they're there they're using supplies (well allegedly, see below) and can't be anywhere else. Of course as a meglomaniac bent on world domination I would rather not have any US divisions in my lovely unspoiled Europe. But how to clear them... I get the idea that the game doesn't really handle giant stack combat right, or perhaps I'm just not doing it right, hence my question.
FYI... nukes not available (it's mid 1943 by the way). I have a lot of low tech bombers, but bombing the stack with interdiction results in mass casualties to my aircraft with probably little result. I have kept the infrastructure down though. I have lots of paras if jumping on them makes a difference. I don't have much of a navy so can't really intercept the supply transports... incidentally I had 6 x 4 bomber groups scouring the seas on bomb convoy for two months and managed to sink ONE merchant ship. Come on ... not that such a stack could ever be possible, can you imagine the amount of supply ships that would be required? As an aircraft it would probably be impossible to miss!
EDIT: a couple of months later and its now up to 177 divisions. I'm "bombing convoys" continuously and haven't hit a thing (with tactical bombers not naval bombers if that makes a difference).
