I have been playing the 1933 scenario with Greece, and immediately declared war on Bulgaria ('freedom' cheat for interventionism) and sparked off World War Two in 1933. Germany was collectively wiped out by the Soviet Union and the Allies, and at some point, they declared war on each other causing a large free-for-all in Europe throughout the 1930s.
As the Soviet Union began to wipe out the United Kingdom's presence on the continent, I also opportunistically declared war on the Allies, in order to capture nearly 3/4 of Yugoslavia. As it stands, it is 1939, and as Greece, I have annexed Bulgaria, Albania, whilst controlling most of Romania and nearly 3/4 of Yugoslavia. I am hoping the USSR plans a version of 'Sea Lion' to keep themselves pre-occupied, but in the meantime, I am wondering how I can go about realistically defending such a border?
I have focused my military research on MOT + TAC, and by 1939, I have finally converted nearly all of my obsolete 1931 Infantry Divisions into Motorised Infantry. Bearing in mind, my relatively low manpower, I am looking for any tips on a defence. I am also planning to invade Turkey in the meantime to extend my border with the Soviet Union. I have just gotten the hang of air warfare, but am clueless how planes can help in defensive war. Should I research + produce CAS? But since they are best for retreating land forces, I would first have to take over a province from the USSR that is highly unlikely.
All tips & advice appreciated!
