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.
That was my way of explaining storyline wise how you got a carrier named after you. If you remember, I said that anyone whose advice I used got a ship or army named after them. It is a way of expressing my gratitude for the election map. As for Bradley, I would say he has more then proven Truman's faith in him is justified.Bradley is doing well in Africa. He really is making up for earlier failures.
I get an carrier? Thanks!
By the way, how did I end up being one of Truman's advisors?
It is very nice of them isn't. I have played into August and so far, that is pretty much how it has played out.Nice to see the Germans and other Axis powers committing troops piecemeal so you can easily destroy them. Looks like this is going to end like the historical North Africa campaign with the Germans sending significant amounts of troops to Africa too late and getting them wiped out.
I shall liberate it immediately. The only reason I delayed with Morocco is I did not immediately notice I could liberate it immediately.Tunisia seems to be on the verge of independence, are you going to liberate it immediately or wait until you attack Italy?
To soon to now for sure, but I have a feeling you will be right in the long run.I say you will meet most resistance in Libya and Egypt.
I think Truman would be better off ignoring de Gaulle. After all, he who does the fighting decides what to do with the land.Looks like the Italians are living up to their reputation. De Gaulle and the Free French appear to have been annexed so are they in exile in America? If so what do they have to say about the US freeing their colonies, and in the case of Algeria what's considered an integral part of France? I imagine de Gaulle would get incredibly annoyed and Truman would essentially ignore him.
I would agree. The capture of the heir to the throne would be a PR disaster not to mention a personal humiliation.I so want to see the look on Mussolini's face, must be like "OH SHI-"
The Free French were annexed. I have simply neglected to mention them and De Gaulle's reaction. I will touch on that in the next update. Algeria actually was considered an integral part of France in real life. It was a department of France, the equivalent of an American state, and not just a colony. That why it was such a big deal when they lost it.Looks like the Italians are living up to their reputation. De Gaulle and the Free French appear to have been annexed so are they in exile in America?

I actually have planned offensive to take advantage of that. I will not say where, but I will say that it is someplace I have not attacked yet. An event will also tie into it and will be pretty complicated and very interesting.A masterstroke in North Africa. I can't wait to see what Truman does now that Mussolini is on shaky ground.
The liberation of Algeria...that is certain to make their history a bit more peaceful.

I have actually surprised myself in Africa, I fully expected to bog down, but I am actually making rapid progress. I have actually liberated a few more countries at the point that I am currently at. Bradley has now liberated more countries then any other American General in the war and quite possibly seized more territory then any other general too. If everything works out the way I want it to, Bradley will be able to lay claim to the title of liberator of Africa.Impressive gains, not only in terms of land but also prisoners! America will no doubt be benefitting from rightful positive propaganda from her liberation of many countries and her military successes. Long may it continue.
I hope so too. As for de Gaulle, I doubt the real life de Gaulle would give up that easy too. However, remember, he does not have much else he can do. His men have been beaten, he is in exile, the people of the US would most likely back Truman over him, and the only hope of even getting France itself back is with American aid. Against that and Truman, what can he really hope to do.If the Italian army isn't defending its' possessions in Africa it has to be somewhere- I hope you don't have the same experience the Allies had in OTL with 'the soft underbelly of Europe.' I'm not sure if de Gaulle would give up quite so easily but it's not as though he can do anything about Algeria so it doesn't make a huge amount of difference.
One of the great ironies of World War Two. The soft underbelly turned out to be a tough nut to crack.I hope you don't have the same experience the Allies had in OTL with 'the soft underbelly of Europe.'
