12th of September 1938 - Salon-de-Provence, Socialist Republic of France

Dewoitine-D-520-Enters-Service.jpg

A French Dewoitine D.520 fighter in the skies above Nice.

The first squadron of new Dewoitine D.520 fighters has flown out today, marking the beginning of the expansion of l'Armée de l'Air. One week ago, the new Lioré et Olivier LeO 45 tactical bombers flew out as well.

A Lioré et Olvier LeO 45 tactical bomber.

L'Armée de l'Air has been given priority over the navy, in order to be completely combat ready by the Spring of 1939. The reason for this headlong expansion is Plan Arc-en-Ciel: to accompany it, the strategical geniuses of l'Armée de l'Air have thought up a plan to ensure that the Germans won't go past the "last lines of defense": Plan Luciole. Plan Luciole is very simple: l'Armée de l'Air should have air superiority over the German corridor at all times, and to a less extent the entire northern front. Therefore a new command has been set up near Abbeville, at the Somme river: Luciole Command. During peace time, it will be an officer training ground; during war time, it will become the biggest air hub of France, with over 250 missions launching from, or being coördinated by, Luciole Command a day.

29th of September 1938 - Prague, Republic of Czechoslovakia, Central Europe

Sudentenland-to-Germany.jpg


German forces have invaded Czechoslovakia! At approximately 4am in the morning of the 26th of September, units of the German Sixth Army infiltrated the German-speaking Sudetenland region of Czechoslovakia and occupied it. The Czechoslovak troops stationed in the area were taken by suprise, and most of them were captured. The Czechoslovak government, afraid they might be abandoned by their British Allies If they responded too hastily, have called for a conference to discuss the Sudeten-matter. The Germans agreed, without withdrawing their forces from the Sudetenland, to hold a conference in the German city of Munich. On the 28th of September, the British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, Polish President Ignacy Mościcki, Italian dictator Benitto Mussolini, Hungarian Prime Minister Béla Imrédy and Führer Adolf Hitler assembled at the Bierhalle in Munich to discuss the matter. The British, still war weary from the Great War, refused to guarantee Czechoslovak safety If that led to open war. Under pressure of Poland, Italy, Hungary and Germany, the British delegation of Neville Chamberlain and British MP Édouard Daladier signed the Treaty of Munich, handing over the Sudetenland to Germany. The Czechoslovak government themselves weren't represented and neither was the Socialist Republic of France. The treaty brings about drastic changes to the Czechoslovak republic: it is transformed from a federal republic into a loose confederation between the to-be-established Czech and Slovak republics. The Carpatho-Ukraine is handed over to Hungary, and several small border changes are made to the Czechoslovak-Polish border.

Treaty-of-Munich-No-Swastika.jpg

From left to right: British PM Neville Chamberlain, British MP Edouard Daladier, Adolf Hitler, Benitto Mussolini and Italian foreign minister Count Ciano.

Jean Longuet, Président of the Socialist Republic of France, has denounced the treaty as being undemocratic and accused the British from "selling their souls to the devil himself". Longuet has proclaimed that France will guarantee the independece of the Czechoslovak state, even If that means war with Germany. However, it seems uncertain If the Czechoslovaks will accept our offer to defend them: they have traditionally been very sceptical of socialism, so it might be hard to convince them we're not out to subdue them...​

It would also be nice to know the state of the German air forces.

Your italicized caption reads 'British MP Edouard Deladier' rather than 'French PM Edouard Deladier'. Unless of course this storyline is more skewed than I thought. XD

I meant Daladier was a British MP (= Member of Parliament). In the storyline, several French politicians fled to the UK during the Revolutionary Civil War and became naturalized Britons. I'll write some more on the war later on, to clear that up. Sorry to cause any confusion :)

Oh btw how many fighters/interceptors units have you in order to achieve the goal of Plan Luciole ?
Currently I'm building 3 times 4 fighter units. Not sure If I should make any interceptors, since they are pretty inefficient IMHO without the radar stations, which I currently can't afford. I'll keep building up my industrial capacity until I get near 200IC. I'll try to get some screenshots up tonight :)

In my savegame, I've already played up to January 1940. This is what my intelligence reports me:
January-1940-German-Estimated.jpg


So pretty frightening statistics, considering my armed forces only count around 55 divisions in Metropolitan France. Even with all forces from l'Union Française combined I'd hardly reach 100 divisions. I've got 9 more infantry divisions on the way (all '39 tech). My air force is even worst off: I've only got 4 interceptor squadrons (the ones you start out with) and 4 fighter squadrons, together with 6 tactical bomber squadrons. If Germany comes in 1940, it won't be easy...

No problem. You just need every single one of your fighter pilots to become an ace 3-4 times over, and you'll have it under control. :D

Maybe it would be wise to have my pilots put vuvuzelas in their engines. That would scare the Germans away :D

16th of March 1939 - Prague, former Confederation of Czechoslovakia

End-Czechoslovakia.jpg


It's been quiet on our diplomatic front ever since September '38. Czechoslovakia refused our offer to defend them in the event of war, so they are all alone now. The past few months the Czech state has descended into anarchy, while the Slovak Republic gained a strong leader by electing Jozef Tiso in October '38. Tiso, sensing that the rump Czech state was nothing but shackles around Slovakia, began talks to dissolve the loose Czechoslovak confederacy. While the Czech republic issued an embargo on all German goods, the Slovak government set their market wide open for Germany: the result was a flourishing economy, with over 5% growth in the last quarter of '38. In late February '39, the negotiations in Prague were completely bogged down, and the Slovak minorities in Prague were taking it onto the Prague streets to manifest for freedom. Small clashes between civilians and Slovak army units on one side, and police forces (accompanied by the Presidential Czech Guard) on the other side, occurred. Czech president Edouard Beneš had to flee the capital, going into exile in Switzerland. Adolf Hitler, Führer of the German Empire, seized the opportunity and has intervened in the Czech republic "to defend the Slovak minorities". Slovakia is now officially an independent state, but its economy has become very dependent on Germany in a very short time. Tiso has been given emergency powers to "re stabilize" the Slovak republic.

23rd of March 1939 - Memel, Republic of Lithuania, Eastern Europe

Memel-Refused.jpg


Exactly one week later, German paramilitary forces staged a coup in the Lithuanian city of Memel, which used to belong to Germany before the Great War. The paramilitaries received unexpectedly large resistance, and the German intervention in the city had to be called off, for a war with Lithuania might bring the Soviet Union into the war as well. German attention seems to be diverting to another eastern nation, Poland...

29th of June 1939 - Tokyo, Japan, East Asia

China-Anneed.jpg


The Japanese government released a statement today, signaling the end of the long Sino-Japanese war. It has been a brutal and bloody war, with over 2,5 million Chinese soldiers, 5 million Chinese civilians and 350,000 Japanese soldiers leaving their lives in the fight. The Japanese foreign office tells us that the Chinese commander of the army drove up to the front lines at Chongqing at approximately 4 am, offering total capitulation to prevent further bloodshed. The Chinese cause was hopeless: on a total mobilisation strength of 12 million men, over 2,5 million soldiers had perished, while 7 million had been taken captive. Their allies were destroyed by Japanese forces in the Spring of '39, which meant China was surrounded and had only one way left to go: into the Himalaya mountains. Several independently operating Chinese army units have fled to the mountain chain, but overall the surrender went without major trouble. With China now subjugated to the Japanese, the fate of the once glorious Empire and its people is uncertain. They are now completely obedient to Japanese mercy.

24th of August 1939 - Moscow, Union of Soviet Socialist Republics

"The treacherous swines that call themselves the true guardians of the International have sold their souls to the Fascist monster that is Germany! We always knew the Soviets couldn't be trusted, but this is something not even we could've expected. Not only does this prove that the Germans are preparing for a global war, it also proves that the Soviets aren't socialists!" teetered Jean Longuet on le Radio Français. That morning Vyacheslav Molotov, foreign minister of the Soviet Union, and Joachim von Ribbentrop, foreign minister of Nazi Germany, announced that Germany and the Soviet Union had signed a non-aggression pact for 10 years. The news was received by the international community with shock. British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain has repeated that, If it comes to war between Poland and Germany, Britain will still guarantee Polish independence. The only good to come out of the so called "Molotov-Ribbentrop pact" is that it has sped up the procedure for France to become an observer in the League of Nations.

The news of the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact has led to Benito Mussolini unveiled a "shocking" discovery to the world: "Yes, people of the world, Stalin's interpretation of communism is in fact nothing but red fascism! Not even Hitler has been so cruel as Stalin to purge half his Army, just because he suspects they might have thought once that their grandmonther might've supported Trotsky in the 1920's.". Count Ciano, foreign minister of Italy, has already announced that the previous statement from Mussolini was false and a "propaganda stunt by the British", but it is clear that the statement was real. The statement has been met with laughter from the entire International Community, for obvious reasons. However, one man in Berlin isn't laughing. He's looking eastwards.

26th of August 1939 - Paris, Socialist Republic of France

LUnionFranaiselogo.jpg

The emblem of l'Union Française.

Following the belligerent actions of Germany the past few months, Léon Blum called on all member states of l'Union Française to hold an International Conference. The result is the 19th Labour and Socialist International Assembly in 13 years. All member states and 7 other, non-member state, delegations were present. The most prominent of these was the newly elected "primus inter pares" of the Polish Labour Party in exile, Josef Kandarisni. Kandarisni launched a plea for support to overthrow the military regime in his country, but even more so to protect it from German aggression.

The Polish question has become a hot source of debate at the conference: most African countries in l'Union Française support the idea of a "Punitive" war to cut Hitler down to size. But France itself is certain that its army is not yet up to the job, and it is almost certain of defeat If war would erupt right now.

"But you have a great strategic plan!", said the Premier of Congo, "you needn't worry about the German Army! Plan Arc-en-Ciel is cleary superior to the German Fall Gelb.". But Blum was more realistic in his assessment of the situation: "Again, you must not forget that Plan Arc-en-Ciel is too dangerous without Plan Luciole to back it up.", said Blum while he looked through the data in his files, "According to recent intelligence reports, the German Luftwaffe now counts over 4,500 operational aircraft, of which 1,900 are fighter-interceptors. Our airforce currently clocks off at around 1,200 operational aircraft, of which only 550 are fighter-interceptors. Even If we add up all the support l'Union Française can add up to our Armée de l'Air, we still don't even have half the Luftwaffe. On the bright side, our airplanes are more modern than their German counterparts, but they still present a large threat when used against us in large numbers. Our ground forces are better off. Again, they are better equipped than the Germans, thanks to our recent rearmament schemes, but the Germans outnumber us 3 to 1. We only have 65 operational formations of division strength, the Germans have over 200!"

Chief of Staff Leon Victor de Bourgeois broke into the discussion, stating that "The Germans are at the limits of their reserves! We are able to mobilze over 12 more divisions within 4 days after a declaration of war. We are able to mobilize over 35 new divisions within the first 3 months, and we estimate that we can mobilize over 70 new divisions within the first year. Our current operational command should be sufficient to man the Karl Marx-line that will shield our mobilization. Even If the Germans manage to break through it at one point, it would take days or maybe even weeks to advance through all the obstacles, which gives us more than enough time to counterattack and to mobilize the border areas. I believe we can hold off a German offensive when it comes."

Confused after all this, Kandarisni turned to Blum: "But.. aren't you even considering an offensive to help Poland?". Blum replied with cold, hard words: "Poland is lost. We can never assist her in time. But we will be back. And once Hitler and his Nazi tyrants have been destroyed, we will liberate the Polish people and deliver them freedom and equality. And you, my brave camerade, will be among the great men that will lead Poland to glory!. Kandarisni nodded feebly, showing slight agreement. But it was obvious he was still in shock. Was there really no way to save Poland...?​

Don't worry about the Germans ground forces. Just hold out long enough for a few divisions of Canadians to get ashore, and we'll settle the score.

Any word yet on those vuvuzela-equipped D.520s? :rofl:

Don't worry about the Germans ground forces. Just hold out long enough for a few divisions of Canadians to get ashore, and we'll settle the score.
Canadians are still capitalist war mongerers, so I expect little help from them :p

But I'm sure they'll prove a great addition to l'Union Française once I have brought them socialist freedom! :D

Ow, we're working on the vuvuzela equipped fighters. So be prepared :D
