"Kampen" om Trondheim

The 18th of January 1941 Roumania Joins the Axis. Even though Germany have given the former Romanian teritorry of Northern Transylvania to Hungary and Dobrudja to Bulgaria. The Romanian government have also been forced to cede land to the Soviet Union. The fear of Communism, made the Axis the "lesser evil" for the Nationalistic regime in Roumania.

The 22nd of January 1941 Roumania Joins the Axis war effort against the Allies.

The 14th of February 1941 Germany have managed to Aquire Naval Supremacy along the Norwegian coast and have launched a Minor Naval invasion in Trondheim, the Norwegian garrison have the situation under control.

The Situation is Under control, the Norwegian garrison are well prepared against such a minor invasion.

The 10th of May 1941 Denmark increased the amount of soldiers conscripted to the Danish Army from Greenland and the Faeroe Islands, the law is now service by requirement, in order to reinforce the Danish Army.

The 22nd of March 1941 Italian forces have succesfully landed in Trondheim. 3 Danish Divisions are imediatly send, in order to attempt to repel the Invasion

This could be the end of Norway, if the treat is not Dealt with.
The 31st of March 1941 Due to lack of Axis reinforcesment and the quick response of the Danish army, Trondheim was liberated, before the Axis could deploy their army.

If was not for the Italians deciding to secure the area surrounding Trondheim, they may have been able to repel any Danish or Norwegian Attack on the City. But the Italians decided to be too aggressive in their invasion.
The 4th of April 1941 Due to the danish army moving into Trondheim in order to secure the port of Trondheim, the port city of Kristiansand is left lightly defended, The invading forces are too overwhelming, so the garrison is in desperate need of reinforcements. But it will take 3 days, before 2 danish divisions can arrive. Then they will need some time to reorganise.
upload_2020-2-18_17-36-55.png

Even when the Axis Attempts to invade Norway so far have been futile, they never have given up. Despite the low amount casualties suffered by the danish army, the amount of fighting is beginning to show.
The 10th of April 1941 The Attack on Kriansand has been repelled, the Danish reinforcement arrived just before the garrison was overwhelmed.
upload_2020-2-18_17-41-8.png

The danish army suffered significant casualties in the Battle, due to the fact, it can not reinforce its army.
The 21st of April 1941 The danish Garrison of Bornholm have arrived in Bergen safely and is now been send to Narvik, to defend the port, as it's currently unguarded. Due to the Overstretched danish and Norwegian armies. Expected to arrive in 11-12 days, depending on the weather.

The 11th of May 1941 Danish Intel, suggest that Germany is planing an invasion of the Soviet Union. This will though first happen after 60 days.

Germany have big plans, but why would you fight another major power, when you are till fighting the United Kingdom?

Chapter 21

Wir Norwegen von Zurück Erobren.

1st of May 1940 Führerbunker Berlin Germany.

German Cheif of Army Ludwig Beck, are called by Adolf Hitler to report the Situation of the Invasion of Norway. Hitler is Führerious over the fact that Norway have not been conquered by the German Army."

Beck: "Mein Führer, the Italians managed to capture Trondheim the 22nd of March, but they did not defend the port so the Danish army retook the city without any Italian resistance the 31st of March. We have now lost 226 thousand men, trying to invade Scandinavia. We have tried countless of times to invade Norway by sea, but the Danish army gave the Norwegians enough men, to defend Norway."

Hitler: "The German army have conquered Poland, the Benelux, Denmark and all of France and you tell me conquering Norway is beyond the capabilities of the mighty German army?"

Beck: "Norway is separated by kilometers of water. We do not have the abilities to secure a port and send enough forces to overwhelm the Norwegians, we simply does not have the means to a naval invasion, that can take out Norway. Any further invasions of Norway would be foolish. We should stop trying, 40% of all casualties for the German army, have been lost in the Scandinavian Campaign."

Hitler: "NORWAY IS NOT AN ISLAND YOU IDIOT! ITS PART OF THE EUROPEAN MAINLAND IT'S NOT BRITAIN!!!!!"

Beck: "But mein Führer, if the German army is to invade Norway by land, we have to move into the Soviet Union and then Finland, before we reach Norway"

Hitler stop talking for a half minute, but he says: "Russia... OF corse, if we can't invade Norway by sea, we will just take the land route. Where is the map?"

Hitler find a Map of Europe "And where is my pencil?" he finds is pencil and start drawing... arrows... Yellow arrows

Beck: "Mein Führer what are you doing?"

Hitler: "I am making a plan, to invade Norway. We just have to attack them from behind, they will not see it comming. Look here Beck see my genius plan."

upload_2020-2-18_18-22-7.png

The Genius military plans of A. Hitler to invade Norway once and for all.

Beck: "So we get military access through the Soviet Union and Finland, a you sure that the Soviet would give military access to a large German army?"

Hitler: "I have no intent of asking, the Soviets stand in my was to conquer Norway, just as Holland, Luxembourg and Belgium stood in my way to conquer France."

Beck: "Mein Führer, the Soviet Union have a large Army and wast amount of Manpower in reserve, attacking them will give the British more men to fight for their cause. If we have to invade a Nation, in order to conquer Norway, Sweden would be a better target. Not even thinking about it, Norway would see such an attack from behind comming, before we even reach Finland"


Hitler keeps drawing, making his plan even more sophisticated.

upload_2020-2-18_18-30-47.png

With Beck advise Hitler plans to invade from the south first, in order to make the Norwegians belive, he is not going to attack Norway from behind. But when the Norwegians think they are safe, Germany will launch Operation Yellow.
Hitler: "Sweden is sadly seperated by sea, so we have to invade the Soviet Union. But you are right, if we just move to attack the Norwegians they would see it comming. So we will first attack the Soviets from the south. When the Norwegians think they are safe, we Will Launch Operation "Yellow" in order to take them by surprise.

You have 70 days to prepare the Operation, you are dismissed Beck".

Beck thinks for himself but says nothing, salutes to Hitler and : "This could be the end of Germany, if we lose to the Soviet Union and we risk this, just to conquer Norway?"

The Axis now have naval supremacy in the Norwegian Sea, and despite my army suffers few casualties, they are stacking up, as i have no Manpower.
But if I can hold out for 60 days, Germany will declare war on the Soviet Union. Wich will hopefully reduce the amount of naval invasions against Norway.

Chapter 22
2. Verdenskrig

The 10th of July 1941 "Germany Invades the Soviet Union, there where no official declaration of war, the German army just attacked, with the only warning being the large concentration of German troops at the Soviet-German Border. Mongolia and Tanu Tuva, have joined the Soviet Union in order to defend the Comintern against the facist invaders.

With The German Invasion of the Soviet Union, the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact is now void
The 17th of July 1941 Danish Intelligence suggest, that the Soviet Union have already lost over 100.000 men, in the matter of a week. They Soviet have Inflictd significantly less losses to the Axis, where the Soviets have inflicted 58 thousand losses to Germany and 12 thousand Romanians. But both sides have exchanged territory at the German-Soviet Border. But the Soviet have gained some Gains in Roumania.

The Soviets have made some minor gains around Moldova, but can the Soviets push the Romanians out of the War?
The 24th of July Japan Declares war of the Philippines. Due to the Fact, that they are practically an American puppet, the United States and Japan, are now at war with each other
upload_2020-2-23_7-18-13.png

Japan is not Satisfied with all of China, but can they handle the industrial giant of the United States of America?
The 26th of July 1941 The United States of America have joined the Allies, the European war between the United Kingdom and France versus Germany and Italy, have now evolved into a Globe Spanning war. This Day is was what made the Second world war, a world war, not just a bunch of isolated wars, but a war spanning the entire globe.
upload_2020-2-23_7-23-55.png

With The might of the US, prehaps the war against the Axis is Winnable?
The 31st of July 1941 Hong Kong have been captured by the Japanese army, due to the proximity to Japanese controlled Japan, this capture was not a surprise.

The 7th of September 1941 The British and Free French forces have made a breakthrough in Libya, they have surrounded 5 Italian Divisions and are now advancing into Vichy Tunisia unopposed for now.

upload_2020-2-23_7-41-27.png

If the Allies can secure Northern Africa, then they will have a great base of operation, to invade southern Europe, Especially Sicily.
The 28th if September 1941 The US forces, have successfully taken an Italian Port of Livorno and have also landed some forces in Southern France west if Nice, if the Allies can capitalise on this, they may open a new Front in the Italian Heartland.
upload_2020-2-23_7-47-0.png

If the Allies can Invade Italy, they may knock the Italians Out of the War and expose German Austria.
The 3rd of October 1941 Germany cedes control, of their Slovakian Puppet to Hungary. This is for a Reward, for Hungarian contribution to the war against the Soviet Union. Where Hungary have lost over 129.000 men already.

The 7th of October 1941 The Allies have managed to secure a foothold in the Area Surrounding Nice, Diverting a small portion the the Italian and German army to the Area, to repel the invasion.
upload_2020-2-23_7-55-0.png

Any offensive from the Allies will most likely just be repelled, But the Axis is forced to Defend their territory from further ally advances.
The 12th of October 1941 American Forces have been repelled from the Italian port of Livorno.

The 12th of November 1941 The Allies gains near Nice, have been lost, the port of Nice have been taken by Axis forces and now 20 American Divisions are stuck in Vichy France
upload_2020-2-23_8-3-11.png

The Naval Invasion of Nice, turned to be a Disaster for the Allies, they have to learn the Same harsh lessons of Naval invasions as the Axis did.
The 31st of December 1941 The Filipino capital of Manila have fallen To the Japanese.
upload_2020-2-23_8-12-38.png

With the Filipino capital lost, will this be the start of Japanese control of the Philippines or will the Invasion be repelled?​

Sate of the Danish military 1st of January 1942.

The Land forces.
upload_2020-2-23_9-54-57.png

Some Danish Divisions are beginning to be really effective at repelling divisions. Dronningens Livgardedivision consisting of about 5.000 men, are the toughest Soldiers in the Danish Army. But other Divisions are severely under-strength and are not fit for combat.

Divisions 9 (4 infanteri Division and 5 "Hjemmeværnsdivision"
123 Battalions (Not all Battalions are at full strength)
61K in field, needs a total of 84K too fill all Battalions.

The Navy
Still 4 submarines. Served by 800 men. Denmark have no capabilities to build additional ships, as Denmark is occupied by Germany.
upload_2020-2-23_9-59-16.png

The Danish Navy, is effectively out of action, due to the German naval supremacy in the Baltics

The Airforce

100 in action 29 in Reserve. (Wich consist of 54 Fighters model 1940 and 46 1936 models. 2.000 Men serves in the Danish Airforce.
upload_2020-2-23_9-58-4.png

These Pilots keeps the Norwegian Skies free from Axis planes. Due to the fact, Germany have no airfields nearby to contest the Danish-Norwegian Airforce.

Status On Manpower
Denmark is beginning to recruit and Train men from Greenland and the Faeroe Islands, in order to replenish the Danish Divisions. But there is not enough men, to replenish all Danish forces. But there is not enough Manpower to Launch any offensive Operations.
upload_2020-2-23_10-0-3.png

If the Danish army could recruit Norwegians, the Manpower issues would not be so severe.

Equipment.
The Danish Army have plenty of Equipment, to replace any losses. So if the Danish army ever make an attack, the will not run out of vital equipment. The Factories in Greenland keeps supplying Infantry and Support Equipment and builds fighters to replace minor losses is the air.
upload_2020-2-23_10-4-9.png

Even if Denmark Lacks Manpower, They have plenty of Equipment to fight with.
Conclusion.
The Danish Land army is still capable of Defending objectives on a limited scale, which is a needed task in Norway, so the Danish Army is still contributing to the war effort.

Eastern Europe

The Balkans

Italy Controls most of Greece, Bulgaria have taken a lot of Greek coast and Macedonia. But no major Changes in the Balkans have happened.

The Eastern Front

upload_2020-2-23_10-21-23.png

The Axis have made some Gains in the northern and central part of the front, the Romanian part of the front is stagnant. Both sides have lost over a Million men on the front. The front is not even 6 months old. But this is the most important (and only) front in the European theatre of the Second world war.

Africa at the start of 1942.
Where the war in Europe have been quite stagnant and no major changes, except the German invasion of the Soviet Union, Africa is different, both sides have made gains in Africa, in each side, the Allies in the North and the Italians in Ethiopia. But the Allies are making the most significant gains in Africa.

Northern Africa.

upload_2020-2-23_10-34-33.png

In 1941 the Allies have managed to Take Tunisia and Algeria and are now making gains on Morocco, if they keep making gains, the Allies may secure all of north Africa.

Western Africa
upload_2020-2-23_10-37-13.png

There have been no major gains or losses for either side in West Africa. The poor infrastructure and weather makes any offensive costly.

Eastern Africa
upload_2020-2-23_10-39-12.png

The Italians have retaken Italian Somalia, but with the Allies Naval supremacy, the Italians will not get reinforcements, so they are risking to overextend themselves and some Italians Divisions are Surrounded that the coast of the red sea in Eritrea.

The war in East Asia and Pacifc in the start of 1942.

The Japanese, have made many gains since their declaration of war against the Phillipines, the Eastern Asian theatre is the widest and most chaotic front. Stretching from Kasmir in Northeastern India, to Burma in the Mainland. The Front is in reality two separate front divided by the Himalayas and Neutral Tibet.

But the Japanese have also made gains in Malaysia, Papua, Southeast Indonesia and are currently invading the Philippines.
Mainland east Asia

The Japanese are making gains, but the terrain and infrastucture, means the gains are slow and only a limited force can attack from the land
Indonesia and the Pacific
upload_2020-2-23_10-56-45.png

Eastern Papua have been taken by Japan, they are now trying to take the Western half, the local Garrison trying to resist.

The Japanese are also trying to invade Java, time will tell if they succeed.

The Japanese army have also landed a significant force in the northern Philippines, they may secure it all, if the Filipinos can not repel the invasion

Losses in the War
upload_2020-2-23_11-7-33.png

Total losses in the war, only the Majors are uniquely listed. The Axis still outnumber the Allies, but Japan is not fighting the Soviet Union, so maybe the Allies can defeat the Axis first, then focus on the Japanese empire when the Axis is defeated.

Chapter 23
Den Passive tid

The 26th of January 1942
The Swedish Government have given Denmark permission to supply their navy, from Swedish ports. Denmark is now sending their 4 submarines to Göteborg.

The 20th of February 1942 Tanu Tuva have joined to Soviet Union, as a autonomous province in Soviet Russia.

The 21st of February 1942 Siam joins the Japanese faction, but have not entered the war, but it is likely they will soon join the fight, as Japanese soldiers are entering the country in order to prepare an assult on the rest of French Indochina and moving into the Brittish Raj, from the south
upload_2020-2-23_16-9-31.png

If Siam had an army at French Indochina, they could have taken huge gains, as it is an opposed flank, in the Allies frontline. But that is not the case and both sides, quickly reinforced the Siamese border.
The 9th of March 1942 The Italian Capital of Rome, have fallen to a British naval invasion, this is the headline in all major english speaking newspapers.
upload_2020-2-23_16-17-52.png

The British now have Rome, but can they hold it?

upload_2020-2-23_16-19-37.png

The Front in Italy, the Americans have taken Venice and the British Rome, but now it is a race for both the Allies and Italians, to reinforce the new fronts.
The 13th of March 1942 Siam have Joined the Japanese war effort.

The 23rd of March 1942 Italy have retaken Rome, the Allies where not able to send enough troops to secure their foothold in Italy, so the Invasion failed, Italy will fight on for much longer, only a pocket of British resistance remains in Europe.
upload_2020-2-23_16-25-38.png

To many naval invasions are have failed, only Japan have showed any success at invading land from the Sea. But that was mostly light guarded colonies or Islands.
The 28th of March 1942 British forces have landed in Sicily, will they bring enough men to hold the position or will it fail like so many invasion like before?
upload_2020-2-23_16-29-17.png

The British are quickly moving to Secure Sicily, but no Divisions are ordered to guard the Port of Messina, which but the forces at risk of getting trapped, if the Italians retake the port.
The 8th of May 1942 The Axis presence in Nothern Africa is now gone, with the ally capture of Cassablanca, the last Vichy port, the Axis no longer have any significant presence in North Africa.
upload_2020-2-23_16-40-1.png

With one front won, the Axis will no longer have any presence in Northern Africa and the Italian navy, will be stuck in the Mediterranean and prevents the Italian and German Navy to combine their forces.

Reorganiseringen

With the Norwegian Army now consisting of 23 Divisions Danish Assistance, in order to Defend Norway is no longer Needed, the Danish army in Exile, have decided, that the Danish army can be of Better use, outside of Norway and are beginning to reorganise the land Army, in Order to plan and execute naval invasions around Europe, in order to make sure, that the Allies can get a foothold in Europe. But Denmark lack manpower and the Army is undestrength, so all "Hjæmmeværnsdivisions" are reformed into new a "Marinedivision", wich have less firepower, but needs less manpower to fight. (2200 less men, in order to fight at full strength, compared to the Standart Danish fighting Division)
upload_2020-2-23_16-52-44.png

This new Division, will also be equipped with an engineer company, in order to capture and maintain equipment.
The Danish army in Exile have plenty of Experience, defending against naval invasions, but now they will be tasked at executing them, but perhaps the experience of defending against such invasion, can give the Danes an edge when attacking from the Sea.

upload_2020-2-23_17-5-49.png

The Danish army is now even smaller on paper, but the paper is now close to reality.​

The Task at hand is simple, get a foothold in Europe, the Execution seems next to impossible, but prehaps the Danish Army can practice in a place, that is not the Fortress, that is Axis Europe?

They had about 23-30 Divisions, they literally just had to guard the ports and they would inflict significant casualties to the Germans and defend their country, that constantly try to invade them.
But I think if a player controlled Norway, they could have defended Norway with success.

What makes it even worse, they allies keep losing dozens of divisions in failed naval invasions, where at least 10 divisions get encircled, because they can't secure a port.

Yes, that is a "feature" of the current version. There are various changes in 1.9 (out tomorrow) which will hopefully mitigate that.
