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.
December 1940? Impressive. What happened on western front?
What about winter equipment?Playing as Germany on normal and no mods. Started Barbarossa on July 7th, 1941, in order to upgrade the last batch of infantry.
Pulled out of North Africa and lost a lot of Italian units in the process.
The United Kingdom attacked Norway.
Finland is not part of the Axis.
Italy and Slovakia are so far, not part of the Barbarossa OOB.
Two large Kessels; Pripjet and Bessabaria. A few smaller Kessels at Riga, Stryj, Vinnitsa, and Odessa. The fight in the Pripjet has cost me a lot of infantry and air losses.
I lost 1 carrier (Graf Zeppelin), 2 battleships (Bismark and Tirpitz), some cruisers, destroyers, and submarines. However, before going down, they did take out some 100+ convoys. Sturdy equipment already produced. Next is fighter and bomber production, plus infrastructure and the Atlantic Wall.
Franco delivered a division as support. No deal with Vichy France.
The United States has not entered the war.

A fitting exile. At least Europe's back to normal.
Yes, one of the more whacky options of KR, a military republic following the death of king Alfonso
Nine Years of War
A few months ago I decided to play a fairly straight-forward game as a secondary nationin in KR, I do not recall which. Little did I know that I had entered what must have been one the most bizarre games I have ever played, and the normally relatively short 2nd weltkreig did not last two or three years, but a full nine years of war (1939 - 1948)
Sadly I only took four screen shots of the game, but I think these show pretty much everything there is to see of that game. I will conclude by informing you that the nation I took the screen shots with is not the nation I originally played, I ended up abandoning my country in favor of becoming a spectator of the intriguing war unfolding before me.
Western Front, 11th of July 1948
The War began with what seemed like a French victory as the Commune rolled over Belgium, entered Germany and crossed the Rhine. The Syndicalists where stopped however and pushed back into France. Germany managed to retake Belgium several times only to lose it again and even managed to break into France now and then but never for long. By 1948 both sides have a constant 0 manpower and only a a few dozen divisions left.
