That is actually something I forgot to address. I was going to address it in the next update but I will state it now. It is actually illegal for a serving general to run for office. He has to resign his commission. This is what I will role play him as having done, but just have not addressed it yet. I will state how he is recommissioned after the election if he loses. Truman cannot run again so he should have no problem recommissioning him. I may manufacture a big fight because of some elements no wanting to recommission him, but I will ultimately have him be recommissioned.While Nixon would likely be a capable VP and certainly an interesting character MacArthur's also part of that package so I'm still voting for Truman. What kind of fallout will there be if MacArthur loses the election? I believe a serving general running for office is pretty much unprecedented.
Aside from a few sorties by the Axis, mostly Bulgaria, it is very uneventful. I have fighters assigned to stop them but that is as far as it goes so far.Also, whats the air war like?
Well, That is it. Truman takes it. I do not think that MacArthur could pull in enough votes to win it. I will not have an election map because I do not know how to do such things, but I will have it be a landslide. There will be at least one more election most likely and the next time, It will most likely be two generals. I will pick the most successful of my generals but the idea I am toying with right now is to run Bradley for the Democrats and Patton for the Republicans. If that is not something that My readers would like, then It will be the two most successful generals I have (that would most likely be MacArthur and Patton). I like the idea of having it be the final showdown between the two rivals and I also feel that if there was one thing that could get Patton to run for office, it would be news that his rival is doing so.
