Excellent progress in SE Asia.

It may be in future years Britain shall pay for these atomic events, but that is, I suppose, a worry for another day.

So much death and destruction at the hands of man. I think Gaia will wreak her heavy hand of justice again someday! :p

Great progress. Americans. They never know what's good for them. Hahaha.

Keep up the heavy rain though I'm thinking these singleton strikes aren't getting the message across. I propose a saturation bombardment of the CSA east coast. Nothing less than 10 simultaneous strikes, followed by another 10 if surrender isn't forthcoming. :D

I'd suggesting focusing on the rest of the world first. Put down the Japanese and Italians, take back India, while sinking any CSA ship in the Atlantic. Only once all the other foes have been dealt with should the old world, with all its power and might, step forth to the liberation of the new.

Incidentally, who controls Panama?

Lots of atomic bombs being thrown around. I worry about climate, and the taint on British reputation post war. Good progress in Indonesia, though!

A few 15-20kt firecrackers aren't going to change the climate, look at the frequency of tests during OTL. I'm more worried that someone will now return the favor. (though I think I've only seen the AI deploy nukes once in all my KR games)

20 - Island Hopping

Units of the small Italian navy were intercepted off Malta on the 18th of March 1947, with the destroyer Alpino being destroyed by aircraft from HMS Audacious. An Italian submarine was also sunk.
5D5QQrD.jpg

The same day the first British armoured division, equipped with the very modern Centurion tank and armoured personnel carriers, the 1st Armoured Division, was deployed in Dorset.

A Centurion Mk.I is delivered by rail to the 1st Armoured Division at Bovington
By late March it was decided that something must be done about Italy. The French had proved mostly incompetent, and so an expeditionary force was despatched to the continent to help hold the line.

Just to send the message to all enemies of Britain, the Philippine city of Cebu was hit with an atomic bomb on the 4th of April.
eAwrJlE.jpg

Another Japanese battleship, Kaga, was torpedoed by British naval aircraft on the 6th, in the Straits of Malacca. An accompanying destroyer narrowly escaped a similar fate.

And twelve days later, the Yamashiro was also sunk in the Makassar Strait. The IJN was now seriously diminished in capital ship strength.

In early May, export permission was granted to sell forty Gloster Meteor fighters and thirty five Bristol Banshee bombers to the French air force.

Further naval successes for the Royal Navy were found on the 5th of June, with the Hyuga being destroyed by gunfire and torpedoes.

The last enemy forces were finally pushed off Borneo on the 19th of June after weeks of bitter mountain and jungle fighting.

On the 4th of July the Japanese carrier Zuikaku was intercepted in the Philippine Sea. Alone, and presumably heading for Japan under cover of darkness to resupply, she was hit by a mass strike from four British carriers, but the final blow was dealt by an Albacore from HMS Anne.

The invasion of the Philippines, Operation Spearfish, was launched on the 7th of July 1947. Some 90,000 Royal Marines and infantry stormed the unprepared beaches at the southern city of Davao. Coming up against understrength defenders, and backed up by air cover and offshore bombardment, the British troops were in control of the habours within hours.

On the 23rd of July the Japanese carrier Ryujo was caught north of the island of Palau by the Royal Navy. Mortally wounded by a torpedo from a British bomber, the Japanese ship was picked off by torpedoes from the Battle class light cruiser HMS Rorke's Drift. Eleven submarines were also sunk by British destroyers, although an unidentified second carrier escaped into the night.

By mid-August 1947, the island of Mindanao was mostly occupied by British forces, although the fighting was difficult in the harsh terrain of the Philippines.

On the 20th of August 1947, the Vickers Valiant, Britain's first jet-powered strategic bomber, was accepted into RAF service and ordered into production. The new aircraft was impressive in its size, its noise, and its bomb load of 20,000 lb.
pCcz1Th.jpg

Spurred on by that development, research and development started for the RAF's second jet fighter, provisionally named Kestrel. It was envisaged as a faster, sleeker aircraft, incorporating swept wings and cannon armament.
cVBrjTW.jpg

A worrying development occurred in the Middle East, as Russia began yet more meddling, this time in Turkey.
GE6l5WW.jpg

The first Valiant-equipped unit, a detached flight of 65 Squadron, was sent to Palau on the 19th of September. Although not yet able to carry atomic weapons, the aircraft would carry out several raids on Japan and the Philippines, and even China, over the coming weeks.

In preparation for the final struggle with Japan, the port city of Naha on Okinawa was hit with an atomic weapon on the 27th of September 1947.

After months of violent, brutal fighting, the entire island of Mindanao was finally under British occupation by the beginning of November. Now, the conquest of the rest of the country must surely follow.

The Canal is controlled by Canada still, but the country itself is a syndicalist puppet state. The Cubans and Caribbeans seem to be quite competent at protecting the Central American situation so far.

Just finished reading through and I must say, Great AAR!

Sweet tragic irony that Canada has now fallen under the yoke of the vile, loathsome, godless syndicalist oppressor. While I agree that you should focus on concluding other worldwide commitments before taking down the CSA, it is never too early to start preparing a staging ground. Does the Entente still control Newfoundland and/or Vancouver Island? Both would be excellent staging grounds for the eventual liberation of North America (whether you control them presently or not).

As for the "liberal" use of nuclear weapons, the syndicalists planned to create atomic weapons through their so-called "Damocles Project" it is only fitting that they should reap the fires that they have sewn. Anyone who attacked the Entente was helping them by proxy, and deserves no better. I would be interested to see what kind of toll the nuclear weapons are taking on your enemies' national unity however.

I'll be interested to see what the final map of North America will look like. You have been fairly restrained so far in peace deals, but with the treacherous Italians showing that being liberated does not ensure loyalty, perhaps the United States needs a firmer hand to guide it out of the darkness of Syndicalism.

Regardless, keep up the good work! God save the King!

O Lord our God arise
Scatter his enemies
And make them fall
Confound their politics
Frustrate their knavish tricks
On Thee our hopes we fix
God save us all!


(Second verse of God Save the King)

You might all be interested to know that the AAR's game save is by now at 1960, and there are still wars kicking off.

Quick edit: the game's save has now finished in August 1960, there isn't much left to do gameplay-wise. However, there is still enough content for a good many updates, and I've come up with a fair few updates-worth of "lore", if it can be called that, to describe the history of Britain up to about the present day in this disturbing timeline.

21 - Slow But Steady

The first ship of the Crown Colony class of battleships, HMS Nigeria, was commissioned on the 15th of November 1947. Faster, larger and better armed than any battleship that had come before, and with a crew of some 7400 officers and men, the Crown Colony class was at the cutting edge of big-gun warship technology.

65 Squadron, still based at RAF Palau, officially became the first all-Valiant equipped bomber squadron of the RAF on the 5th December, and with the disbandment of its detached flight, took delivery of nine more of the new bomber. The squadron was commanded by Wing Commander Alfred Beresford, an experienced veteran of RAF Bomber Command.

The fighting across the strait to Leyte began on the 2nd of December 1947, and lasted for a full five days, as Royal Marines crossed the water in landing craft and RAF aircraft performed low-level rocket and bomb attacks. Once British troops were landed ashore on the island and had a secure beachhead, they came under a sustained counterattack by the enemy that lasted until the 2nd of January 1948. The initial assault and the subsequent battle to keep the beachhead claimed some 17,970 British casualties, both killed and injured, and 26,570 Philippine dead and wounded; it was to be one of the bloodiest battles of the whole war.

The fighting in the Philippines thereafter came to a standstill, with British and Philippine troops dug in opposite each other with no progress being possible. In order to break the stalemate, Operation Uppercut was devised, which called for a force of Royal Marines to storm the capital, Manila, supported with heavy bombardment and air cover. After most of the Marines in Leyte had been replaced by line infantry, this operation was successfully carried out on the 22nd of March 1948. British troops in Manila immediately began fanning out and easily threw back the disorganised surrounding units, and moved for the town of Batangas to the south.

The second of the Crown Colony class was commissioned into service on the 28th of March 1948. HMS Kenya was another of these modern battleships, although seen by some in the Admiralty as the last hurrah of big gun ships. Apparently others disagreed though, for rumours were beginning to circulate of another "monster ship" being built in secrecy at Rosyth.

The Philippines capitulated on the 4th of April 1948, although this would not end the Philippines Campaign entirely; Japanese troops remained on the islands of Palawan and Cebu, the latter still devastated by the earlier atomic bomb, and it would take another operation to dislodge them until the campaign could be declared a victory.

The rapidly deteriorating situation for Japan was emphasised five days later with the detonation of an atomic bomb over the Chinese city of Zhengzhou; this was the first such weapon dropped by a Vickers Valiant.

April was relatively quiet after that, until the Japanese battleship Musashi was intercepted and torpedoed by aircraft from the Glorious class carrier HMS Triumph, on the 9th of May in the Philippine Sea.

In June 1948, yet another terrible weapon of modern war was unleashed by Britain for the first time; the R.2 rocket had been in development for some time, and it succeeded the earlier R.1. Although the R.1 arrived too late to see action against the Germans or syndicalists, some 400 had been manufactured. The R.2 was now ready for service, and the first attack by the weapon was launched against the industrial city of Milan in northern Italy on the 19th of June; it had been fired from Sussex.

Little over a month later, the Fairey Edmonton was completed and ordered into production. The Edmonton was the greatest tactical bomber yet, improved in most every aspect over the Banshee.

A new carrier for Britain was developed in August; the Centaur class. This new ship was able to make 33 knots, carry over a hundred aircraft and sail over 6300 km without being resupplied. It was also to be equipped with helicopters, a recent development that had seen limited service in Asia; the Centaur class would carry three.

By this point in the war, the Japanese navy was crippled, and the British high command felt bold enough to venture up to the very shores of Japan itself, now sortieing far from its usual haunts around the Philippines and China.

This was to be a decision that paid off; a week later, two Japanese carriers, the aged Kamoi, and the comparably modern Hiryu were torpedoed by British aircraft from Triumph and Magnificent.

And again, only four days after that, another Japanese carrier was destroyed by British action, this time the Akagi, sent to the bottom by Fleet Air Arm squadrons of HMS Renown.

On the 6th of September the Vickers Valiant really began to enter service en masse; I Strategic Group was remustered in the Philippines, now equipped with a hundred of these enormous machines. 16,000 pilots, aircrew, mechanics and various support staff were deployed in a titanic effort to get this force, the likes of which had never been seen before, into action.

On the 15th of Sick Man was finally put out of his misery once and for all, at the Treaty of Istanbul; the Bosphorus, including the city of "Tsargrad", long sought after by Russia, were annexed to Russia. Russia also took direct control over the strategic areas of Libya, Cyprus and the Aegean Islands. The Republics of Syria and Iraq were also officially recognised as sovereign states. This consolidation of Russian power now gave them an opening in the Mediterranean and Africa; "something must be done", remarked the Foreign Office, as vaguely as usual.

October saw the beginning of Operation Haymaker, the liberation of Papua; Royal Marines stormed the town of Hollandia, and found the island defended solely by ill-equipped Siamese "volunteers".

British, French and Polish troops had finally loosened up the situation in Italy by December, with unopposed landings in the north west; Rome, one of the great cities of the world, fell to advancing British infantry on Boxing Day 1948.

The New Year passed without incident, and near the end of January 1949, the RAF ordered into production their newest jet fighter, the Vickers Kestrel. The Kestrel included in its design swept wings, cannon and a better jet engine than previously seen.

The last day of that month marked the commissioning of HMS Centaur, first of her class, in Portsmouth.

A peace with Italy was finally concluded on the 6th of February 1949, following a rapid advance of Entente forces down to the south, unopposed. The Treaty of Taranto guaranteed the sovereignty of Slovenia, the legitimacy of British rule in Trieste (by now dubbed "the Hong Kong of the Med"), and gave France control of Sardinia in recompense for Italian occupation. Some said this treatment was too harsh and would breed bitterness. Others said that the autocratic rule of the Church was the force behind Italian aggression, and that it ought to have been crushed. Either way, Herbet Samuel stated that "people wanted peace, and now they have peace".
