The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
Well I just wanted to show off my game in MDS haha, so soon we'll return to Korean Peninsula.What a great continuation.
I'm sorry I did not notice this before, but, I congratulate you on the reward for the best AAR of the month.
China's Anti-Succession Law was passed in 2005, essentially obligating its leadership to go to war if Taiwan ever declares independence.° 2010, (June 16th) People's Republic of China declares that Taiwan is part of China and launches a major amphibious assault at the south of Taiwan island along Special Forces landing to support the assault.
I'll divide my answer for the two things you mentioned.I'm reminded why I've never played any of the modern scenarios for DH...
It's a little hard to take seriously due to how much it runs against national interests
(I mean, wtf is China doing in Japan? especially in 2011 with the Hu Jintao leadership who was stuck in a political deadlock over internal reforms)

Whomever wrote this mod forgot to do their research ^^;
Still interested in seeing where you'll be taking this Korea in the 50s~
Reading Cho Bong-am's history, it definitely feels like Korea would be much better than today's version if he had been in charge instead of Rhee.
Thanks!Take your time, eagerly awaiting the next update!
C) Thanks ^^ I've had some issues finding enough information about Korea, I didn't think it would be this hard haha.
And yes, I agree about Rhee, perhaps he was a necessary evil...but I don't think his domestic policies were even -thaaaat- good. I mean, he placed the cornerstones that Park Chung-hee used later, but I think they could be placed without the corruption of Rhee's regime.
Korea has numerous challenges ahead, two Red and scary neighbours at her borders, a new president at the White House (decided to stop the communism from expanding over the world) and also an interesting situation regarding domestic politics.Some quite detailed plotting there. I don't envy South Korea its balancing act.
You are right about the Non-Aligned Movement and indeed, Korea has the chance of receiving numerous benefits if they play their hand well.A careful balancing act would help Korea so much. Especially when you consider that being the 'backdoor' to China brings huge economic benefits (just look at Hong Kong's meteoric rise since PRC establishment). The downside would be that the Non-Aligned Movement wouldn't start until 1961, which means you'll have a rough balancing act (especially on borders of PRC/USSR) until the group forms. Once it does though and you huddle up with Nehru and Nasser, Soviet desire for friendship with India/Egypt should guarantee that they leave you alone. And China will be too busy with internal problems after the Great Leap Backwards.
Oh indeed, speaking Korean would make it so much easier.Finding good information on Asia development in general is hard due to the profound Eurocentric bias of the English web. I had assumed you spoke Korean... which would make the task much more manageable.
I think that the massive bombing the Americans used against North Korea played an important factor in the mindset of the North Korean leadership.Personally, I feel that Rhee's extrajudiciary mass murder vs communist sympathizers destroyed any chance of an early Korean reunificiation, because it also forced the north into a hardliner perspective. Though admittedly, it's not a topic I'm well read on. For a Korea victorious in the Korean War, he would certainly have been a disaster because reconciliation is needed more than crackdown.
You are so kind!I've had this AAR on my backburner for a while now, and I've finally gotten caught up to the present. I know it's been a little while since the last update was posted, but I wanted to let you know that I've been enjoying seeing how a reunified Korea finds its feet on the world stage, and I'm eagerly awaiting the promised chapters to come
