It's a good thing that you have your colonies. :D Do you have any transport ships? Just in case... :D
Yep, we've got a fleet that can carry 2 divisions at a time... if we fail in Europe, we attack South America.

Act IV: Homeland lost :(

After two serious defeats at our defensive line, we use our last opportunity to redeploy to our port province, where two transport ships will take us safely to Dover.



Soon the Germans have taken all of our European provinces. We now wait for Portugal to be called to arms, so that we would be able to conquer their colonies in Africa. We've got 2 divisions in our colonies. They're ready.

Looks like it's good we took England as a safe place instead of France. They're losing. This is the situation in June 27, 1939.



One week later Paris fell. We can only wait.

I always relied on forts as Belgium, but with all the extra provinces, it was going to be a stretch in HOI3. Hoe you can sort the portuguese out

V: Portugal

After realizing that we had enough divisions for a minor invasion, we transported the divisions in England to Gibraltar. Gibraltar will act as a base.
24th September Nat. Spain joins the Axis. Fortunately they're not called to arms.
3th October our forces are ready in Africa and Gibraltar.

5th October, 3:00 AM Portugal is called to arms. We are ready.
10th November France falls. Vichy France is created.



Third day of December Portugal falls when they lose all of their European VP areas.

brilliant solution to the loss of Belgium - can we expect all those vine fields to be replaced by hops and the introduction of beer and frites to replace sardines on the menu as you install the full Belgian experience in Portugal?

Eh wait. You hop over to Brittain, move to Gibraltar and take out Portugal.
Now, that is what I call surprising indeed. And it leaves me on the tip of my chair wanting to know what's next and moreover, if you will get the Fatherland back ;)

Well, if Nat. Spain gets a CtA, we try to take their regions. Now we wait for Germans to move away. Then we'll reclaim Belgium and possibly France. Portugal gives us the ability to produce some troops.

Interesting strategy! Attack where you're least expected. :)

Do you get any IC form Portugal, considering that it's occupied. What's your occupation policy?
I haven't got time to check IC/change policies now, but i think i'll use the policy that gives only -25 IC or the one that gives -50 IC.
