Germany in mid-1944, hard pressed on every front, but still optimistic thanks to Hitler's madness and the efforts of doctor Goebbels, fighting for its survival, in the name of liberty and justice (or so they think). The borders of the German Reich have not yet been reached, and the glorious armies of the Empire and it's allies are still fighting on foreign territories, however the allied air armadas are roaming almost at will over the German airspace and bombing everything in their way. This has to be stopped! Britain must surrender, communism must be wiped out, and the future of the peaceful and united Europe must be secured.

As always, the 1944 scenario begins with the surrender of German troops trapped in northern France. What a nice beginning.

Immidiately after that, hordes of Soviet infantry, tanks, and aicraft cross the eastern frontline and start taking over and bombing everything.

Patton makes an early attempt to brake out into central France, for which he pays with defeat.

Following a daring German special operation, Mussolini is rescued and put in charge of northern Italy.

The luftwaffe is sent to Berlin for general insepction and re-organization. Goering concludes that overall, although the Luftwaffe is not as powerful as it should be, it is still a more than capable fighting force, it just needes a little re-arrangement. He also states that at first, the luftwaffe activities must concentrate in the west, before trying to stop the bolshevik air hordes.

The Americans seem to quickly recover from their recent failure, and now McArthur (I thought that guy was supposed to be fighting a war against Japan?) leads a new breakout, this time successful.

As we all probably know, one of the first things that Germany absolutely must accomplish on the eastern front is re-take Beltsy from Soviets. Not only does their presence in Beltsy put them in position to encircle Axis troops at Chisinev, but it also is a direct threat to the entire balkan region. Conclusion - Bessarabia must remain free from Soviet presence.

Sove German rockets are launched on southern England, just to piss off the Brits, nothing more. Overall the rockets are pretty damn useless, especially since their aiming is so bad that when you aim them at London, they end up landing at Norwitch, but they do manage to reduce the IC in Norwitch to 0.

The allies in Italy launch an offensive northward, but fail to brake through the Gothic line.

If you throw your rockets at the Normany beaches, you can reduce their Infrastructure levels, which would lower the ESE there and thus give the Allies as much as a 40% combat efficiency malus. Also, in the event that you fight more than one battle in a given province, you will greatly slow their ORG regain.

It could make a difference.

One question though is just how long the Japanese will be able to hold out in the east?
I don't know, I'm not going to military-control them.

As you know in 1944 scenario China absolutely sucks balls *cough* *cough* sorry, I mean it's utterly unable to defend itself in any proper way. I'll try to make them hold out for as long as I can, give them extra infantry or something, although that usually doesn't help. I'm not sure what exactly makes them lose so badly, maybe their doctrines suck? Basically I'll try to make sure that the Chinese don't lose ahistorically fast. As for Americans and the pacific war, I will just observe how it goes from the "sunk ships" statistics screen..
Oh by the way, I am currently building some transports and submarines, and a few light cruisers. Don't ask why ;)

That wouldn't be very realistic though.

Interesting start. I'm waiting to see what submarines and light cruisers are for among other things.

May I suggest changing "Kapituliren" into "Kapitulieren"?
It would be the right german word.

Sie können uns unterdrücken, sie können uns töten, aber kapitulieren werden wir nicht!

Good luck, you'll need it.
