The goal of this AAR is to shed a somewhat historical light onto the importance of the lesser nations in WW2. I specifically chose Mexico because of the exceptional skill that was shown by their men that served in that war. The Mexican Navy was a vital ally to have around for big brother America in the north, and the Mexican Air Force served with dignity and honor in the Pacific. Over 200 Mexican planes and personnel would join Americans in liberating the Philippines. The 201st Mexican Air Squadron, nicknamed the "Aztec Eagles", would only suffer 5 casualties while flying many successful missions.
While it is important to note that this AAR obviously won't be completely historical, I will try to keep many squadron and ship names the same. The major difference here is that I will also send troops to the Pacific to participate in the island hopping techniques along with the USA. I will also probably station troops in Australia to strike around Singapore if Japan were to take it. One last important note, I love history and I am an Economist by profession. If I get too dry about economic analysis of the state at the beginning, please let me know, though I do think some of it is integral to the story when talking about buildup. This is my first AAR and I'm quite nervous about it, so with that said, I'll post some of the game photos tomorrow. From there the story will begin.
