Nice to see that the war in Africa finally seeing some success, Vichy is really no match for the US Army. Is Vichy France actually a member of the Axis at this point?
The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
I believe they are have Axis troops camping out in their territory, I would say they are a member at the moment. A nation you declare war on also almost always joins an alliance you are also at war with in my experienceNice to see that the war in Africa finally seeing some success, Vichy is really no match for the US Army.

Good, I was worried things would be a bit too easy if Vichy was left on its own. Its allies don't appear to be doing much to help it though...I believe they are have Axis troops camping out in their territory, I would say they are a member at the moment.

Germany has no stake in Africa as it has not a single German province in it. Spain and Italy are the only other nations with African claims. Spain is busy trying to defend Spain itself so little can be sent and Italy is dragging their heels apparently.Good, I was worried things would be a bit too easy if Vichy was left on its own.

No, however, It will likely be a while before I can annex Vichy France's French provinces so I would have to wait to annex them. Most of the VP provinces in Vichy Africa are along the coast and the reason for the dispersion of troops will become apparent in the next few updates.Does Vichy have her VPs spread out all over the place?
I hope it does as wellIt looks like you may have found a theatre open to easy gains. I hope it remains this way for some time!
Portugal actually has a VP province in Macao, so until I take that, they will continue to haunt me.Good news is in Africa, you can finally eventually annex Portugal.
The United Africa thing was just something I was toying with. I wanted to know what the readers thought before I decided either way. Europe would have most definitely lost the fear and respect of the people of Africa. How can you respect someone that just got their but kicked and utterly failed to defend you? Also, thanks for pointing out the error. It has been corrected.Well the European powers will have lost the fear and respect of the population and won't have any ability to govern after the war, but a united Africa would be an utter disaster and I hope it isn't being seriously considered. By the way I think you mean Africa "was too massive and underdeveloped to be adequately defended by a Colonial empire", not Europe.
That was the general idea behind the liberationGood idea on liberating Africa. After all, you can get African divisions that way.
It is radical, but I also thought it would be cool at first. but I have decided against it.Very nice gains, Africa seems open for the taking. I have to agree with sentiments already expressed, giving each respective African nation its own independance is probably the best bet. Creating a sole African union/nation, seems quite a radical idea.
I get an carrier? Thanks!Meanwhile, two of the recently constructed carriers where rechristened. After many suggested that FDR did not deserve a carrier named after himself after the state he left the military in, the Carrier was rechristened as the Nathan Madien, after one of Truman's advisors. Also, after much confusion over why a Carrier was named after an insignificant pair of islands, the Midway was renamed the Avenger
