Introduction

Four Men's Destiny




I.Joseph Makael


He walks along the Moskwa slowly, almost deliberately.
The people who come across him, eyeball him with a touch of fear – something normal for him.
Joseph has never been to Moskow to this day, and he had not the chance to see half of the things he wanted to see. But what sadden him more, was the fact of his rapid farewell with his father. Well, he was not his father at all, he adopted him at the age of four, when he found him in a dirty puddle, nearly naked and malnourished. The the local administration was easy to convince, the officer accepted the adoption with a shrug of the shoulders. His father often described the officer as a “typical snobbish German good-for-nothing, being in Africa because nobody wants him in Bavaria, and ,even more typical, don't give a shit about an Russian Jewish merchant and thousand of children, deceasing on his step, because of his good-for-nothingness.”
All Joseph can remember is his father, calling his name (but without a clear imagination of his face) and the hunger and the heat.
Nevertheless he wants back. Shmuel Makael nodded thoughtfully as he revealed his wish to go back to Cameroon. In the meantime, the good-for-nothing Germans was replaced by good-for-nothing French, however, the situation is quite bad. Joseph read everything he could dig up about the situation in Euqatorial France. He studied in Kiev, where Shmuel lives.
He founds out the only way to put an end to inhuman imperialism: all-world communism.
As they have no chance to get education, the African peoples are not able to resist the pseudo-democratic Europeans.
Makael's aim is to catch up the enlightenment for Africa, maybe this could be the start for a world revolution.
But that is just a dream, things must be handled in Cameroon first.
In one hour he will board the plane – the start of his long journey down to his long missed home.



II.Gaspard Baga-Leon


Ho Chi Minh smiles brightly.
The hall was full of men, waving red flags or raising banners. The Vietnamese man was secretly smuggled into Paris, because the secret service got an closer eye on him, because of his investigations in French Indochine. Ho's speech about the role of colonies in the hegemonial position of the reactionary states was consistent with Gaspard's thoughts, but he was not cheering as the others.
Ho was his rival.
The Parti communiste français supports the ambitions of French colonies to become independent states as far as they can, but they got insufficient funds to finance every revolt.
And the peacefully looking man was the most promising candidate in the eyes of them.
After long-time activity in the party, Gaspard Baga-Leon has finally got some support - enough to get it started.
Two days left, then he will be on his way back to Cameroon. It will take some time to get those weapons, commie-financed, to a fitting hide. And that's just the beginning.
While he thinks about his plan, the hall slightly empties.
Gaspard knows, that he gave himself a life-task, freeing the land of his ancestors.
He would do his best, to make the world a better place, where al peoples live in peace.



III. Khalid Menad


Nobody pays attention to him, even if he sits there motionless for hours, seems like days!
In fact Khalid doesn't know how long he has been sitting there, staring at the pictorial well. This was his home village, it has no name and lays around 50 km in the south of Algiers.
He knows that he has to make an decision.
Khalid was never interested in politics, he prefers the simple way of the military.
He likes the order of superiority or inferiority, an easy to handle hierarchy.
But now it has been the third time he hasn't been promoted. Every time someone else got chosen.
Every time a French officer.
In his frustration he thought about leaving the military service.
And now this letter, definitely in time.
When he was sent to Paris for deeper education, he met Baga-Leon a couple of times. Gaspard talked weird, but fascinating stuff about freeing the colonies, Africans and Europeans on the same eye height.
They both knew, that this would be reachable by force only.
Khalid stands up and tears the letter apart, he made his decision – there wasn't much he need to take along.



IV.Valery Elcourt


“You have use that entry!”
It isn't that the man omit the “Sir” or the commanding tone in his voice that annoys Valery the most. It is the overbearing way he looked at him.
The train-guard, standing between him and the first-class-entry, points at the last wagons.
“But I got a first-class ticket!”
“Well, only because you've stolen enough money of your master, like the dress you wear.”
he smiles. “Be happy that I haven't called the police, and now go!”
Stunned Valery turned away. He is the secretary of an French enterprise in Cameroun! At home, even the whites knows him, but this wasn't the first time he gets threaten like that, especially in South Africa.
As he walks along the wagons, there are many black faces watching him. Elcourt wonders, if they would grab his clothes and his money. He wouldn't resent that, they got as good as nothing.
Every time he walks out of his home he sees the whole African misery.
Secretly, he had visited the communist meetings sometimes. First, he pretended to be there just because he was bored.
But after some time, he couldn't refuse his interest any longer.
While he stands in the overcrowded wagon, he can't wait to arrive at home.

Hey everybody :)

this is my first AAR, although, i hope you will enjoy this like I do :cool:


To say this first, I am not communist. In fact I am member of an german party with liberal orientation (so I am). But I am very interested in communism, and it fits the most ito African intellectual rebels, so I make them communists.


Rules (or how to name them):

Difficulty: normal/normal
Nation: CAM (rewritten, new leaders, ministers)
Style: Realistic, no powergaming, no panafrican nation
other fixes: removed france from allies, add vp in start province so that france can't annex me at the start, also added two french inf-divisions.
Industry use: i let the AI_Event trigger, for dissent and 6 off-map ic n' stuff.
Tech: I copied the commie-china techs, but choose the Mobile way in Land doctrine.

The way to go:
Free africa, abolish colonies and later on, maybe I'll take part in the World War(s).

Prologue
Setting Up the Forces Armées Anti-Impérialistes

06:00pm 19.04.1934 Chez Sierra Bassa, Nigeria

Foundation of the Union des Populations du Cameroun




Excerpt of the elected General Secretary Gespard Baga-Leon's speech:

I've got a question, what's the use of a party without a parliament to appear in? Nothing. And is there a chance to make the French give us an parliament we would accept? There is none. But I won't tarnish the fact that we made the first step today, even if we can't function as a party in its usual way. Many of you are laborers, workers, the basement of every modern socialist state. Spread the message to your suffering comrades! The French occupiers got lazy and careless, they don't expect an uprising. A friend of us located an old German weapon depot near Lake Tchad. We also got weapons by our socialist supporters in Paris. The French never come more northern than the Adamawa Plateau to suck our blood right from the heart out of our mines. I spoke to several Fula Chieftains last month, they will support us root-and-branchly. The French occupation troops' strength is at two division is Youndé. I've prepared an 2-years-plan with General Staff Leader Menad to set up an army able to clean purge our country of French imperialists. He knows the style of their army because he was a leading part of it.
[...]
To avoid a mass exodus to our camps in the north, a time plan is needed. Therefor, I'll made a list with revolutionary provincial administrators. We'll meet tomorrow, to set up an logistic system for food, volunteers and so on and communication.
Now, I beg you to spread the message! Hereby I close the first meeting of the UPC!





09:00am 03.02.1935 Military Bureau of French Camroun Youndé, Cameroon

Lamalé enters with sweat on his brow. As Aymé looks up he sees the anxious expression on the man's face, who was known for his untroubled way.
“Sir, I bring you the monthly report of the northern region. We got several incidents and I got the impression we slightly loose control”
Aymé bends forward and frowns.
“Go ahead Francois”
Lamalé sits down.
“Maybe you remember the hostility with whom the natives treat us the months before. The Fula people don't let us into their villages any longer, some tribes even keep their whole territory shut. Two clerks tried to enter but got captured, blessedly, they got free shortly after. The local entrepreneurs reported, that there were attacks on convois, some got raided. The figure of the missing raises, mostly clerks and police officers. The General Secretary of Maroua was forced to retreat, because some natives have threaten his wife. He is now in Youndé.”
Aymés face relaxes.
“Well, then. Shoot some Fula”
“The tribes stick together, we would risk a uprising.”
“Arrest some villagers and miners then. And shoot the ringleaders in public if you'll find some.”
Aymé does a gesture to say that he has finished the dialog.
“Shouldn't we use the armed f...”
But Aymé already turned away.




Pamphlet, spread all over French Camroun:


Peoples of Camroon!
On the 20th of July the Provisional Government of Joseph Makael declared the Independence of the the Peoples' Democratic Republic of Cameroon!
Rebel against the Imperialist French occupiers who are unlawfully in our country.

They
kill your fellows, familiars and friends
steal the resources which are rightfully yours
rape your women
force you to work like slaves

On the 15th of July the French forces ended a strike in the Harbour of Douala by shooting the workers. There were over 200 dead Cameroonians.
With the Declaration of Independence the provisional president Makael declared war on the French invaders and imperialism as a whole.
What can they do against the united force of laborers and farmers of a whole country?
Tell your fellows who can't read and contact your local revolutionary administrator.
Sign up to the Forces Armées Anti-Impérialistes and free your country!

Well, I think the situation in Africa is similar to China's

few factories ---> few workers

great third economical sector ---> many farmers

so farmers are the base of my imagined African socialist state :)

nice to see there is somebody who reads this, I'll go on = )

Hard to see a communist state in this time period in Africa. Curious to watch this one unfold.

Good luck!

Most interesting, sir! I don't know much about communism in itself, but I find Africa very fascinating. Following, and good starting chapter. :)

Chapter 1
From Chari to the banks of lowly Boumba Stream


10:00am 29.11.1935 At a training camp near Lake Tchad General Staff Meeting

chairmanship: K. Menad

Khalid is very exited, when he enters the briefing tent.
He hopes, that this is not viewable for the present high-rank officers.
Spending nearly one year on training the revolutionary army some to the point where the work will pay off. There were other experienced leaders who joined the rebels, before his arrival as well. But nobody was able to reach his skills. Baga-Leon knew that and commanded them to make the peasants become fighters. There were also some veteran soldiers who joined the Anti-Imperialist Forces, for different reasons: There were radical franctireurs (mostly Spain and French ones), trained native policemen and unsatisfied soldiers of the colonial forces.

After he has steadied the officers at the long wooden benches, he begins to talk:

”Good morning comrades,
The day we have worked for is nearly there. To say this first, I plan to give the march order shortly after New Year.”

The officers start to mumble. Khalid waits till he continues.
The time is ripe because of some reasons:
Our informants messaged us, that the garrison in Youndé will be halved ourround then. The Assemblée Nationale pass this resolution. We don't know if they will get displaced so we will rush rapidly.
Maybe you noticed, that the soldiers get bumpy, they wanna see blood. They were peasants but if you see them as a whole, they make an army. We'll outnumber the French 3:1. Even If we strike them suddenly, after the shock they will defend at least one port for support, so we got to get them fast. If we made this before the French react, we got our country, else there will be hard fighting ahead.

The Forces Armées Anti-Imprialistes is made up of three devisions, the core will be the most experienced fighters we got - the 3éme Corps, who are able to take it on with the French soldiers. Their equipment is very mixed, but as a whole, it is as good as our enemies'.
In the next days we'll get the possibility to modernize the Corps to nowadays standards, but I anticipate!
While we're on our way to Douala, the instructors here in the camp will train more light infantry to capture the hinterland.
This is the first campaign for most of you so let you tell this:
your soldiers will take revenge for the days of occupation, if they get the chance. The French families will retreat to the ports or to the British or Belgian border. But there will be some pig-headed settlers who won't go. Try to avoid massacres and other cruelties, if possible but don't make your soldiers angry. Look away if they root sometimes, this simply belongs to war. But stop them from making mistakes on fellow Africans. If you'll find traitors, catch them. They will be judged after the reoccupation.
Maybe you wonder where we get those weapons for the new soldiers from. We found some favorers, who will support us directly with the following year.
[off-map ic by ai_event]
Any questions? [...]

[I made Fort Lamy occupied by Cameroon from the start,so the unrealistic strategic redeployment through the desert isn't possible]

It is a very good AAR so far, great dialogue!

Keep it up and good luck! Try not to go the way of other Socialist nations though (USSR), treat your people well.

Hmm, maybe you should make an event that everytime you conquer an African province it becomes part of your nation and gives you one free militia division? ;)

A very good start! I shall be following.
There's one thing though - wouldn't it be more realistic and believable that the outside support came from SU? I don't really understand how any French political party could effectively help rebels in French colonies. The government did have an intelligence organization and police. ;)

Ho Chi Minh himself was supported by the French Communists :)
Even before WWI, the Commies was anti-colonialists

06:15pm 18.07.1936 Maroua, Provisional Capital of the Peoples' Socialist Republic of Cameroon

Joseph sits on his terrace, while smoking a cigar.
His men engaged the French in Douala two weeks ago, since then, he hasn't heard a thing. This is because the communications is prehistorical and the French Army destroyed many systems on its retreat. But Joseph was exited anyway, maybe a bit afraid. If the Forces Armées Anti-Imperialistes had captured the port, the new nation got its first sea border to attack. He came to the decision that he would need at least one garrison at the ports.
After their first victory, Makael has sent out a ready division under Baga-Leon's leadership to capture the encircled French territory. Since then, the instructors got holiday.
Grimly, his mind wanders to the moment he got the battle report.
The French reacted not the way Menad expected; in their arrogance they marched northwards.
As our agents reported their arrival in Bangassou, Menad led his forces into the deep forest to engage them. Aymé does an unexpected counter-attack and Menad's soldiers were wide spread. After long lossy fighting, the French strategically retreated. A poor victory.




But after that, the Cameroonian army has pushed the French to the sea.

Suddenly Joseph hears tramping. Sgt. Alengha appears.
“Sir, Menad now controls the city of Douala. He left some soldiers there and is now marching to Yaoundé. He requests more divisions for encircling Aymé.”
The Provisional President stands up and smiled brightly.
“Great, go to the tents and tell our men, this are great news!”
The Sergeant hesitates.
“There is something else. There are struggles in Spain. To put it in a nutshell, Spain is in a state of civil war now, fascists fight socialists. Whole Europe is in commotion.”
“This shouldn't decrease the importance of our victory, but indeed, it's threatening who fast fascism spreads like an unholy disease....
Thanks to you, Sergeant.”

Alengha salutes and departs.
Only a few months more and the whole ex-French colonial occupancy south of the Sahara will be under his rule. Time to make concrete plans for after-French Cameroon. Elcourt was sitting in his tent all the time to design ideas, how to develop the Cameroonian industry and economy as a whole.
He stands up to visit Valery.
