Chapter I: The Beginning


neweurope.gif

January 1948

The Axis nations were victorious on the Second World War. The Great Britain was forced to peace, Soviets driven to Siberia, and the American last attempt, the Invasion of Normandy, failed. European map was quickly redrawn and new nations were born.

During the war, Japan occupied huge amounts of Chinese lands, and had puppet states on them. Without any success on taking over the Nationalist China, and later on being nuked by U.S.A, the empire had no other chance but surrender. Japan was humiliated and a puppet government was installed by the Americans.

The puppet states in Manchuria decided to leave the war and unite themselves, creating a new Chinese Empire, led by emperor Pu-Yi. On the south, is now Republican China, and to the East, Sinkiang and Mongolia. World seems to be in peace, but the nations are confused. Soviets are seeking revenge, a cold war has begun between Germany and U.S.A, and China is still divided. The Imperial China wants to reunify the whole China, and begin the new dynasty!

EMPEROR PU YI'S MASTERPLAN FOR THE NEW CHINESE DYNASTY:

All the available technology is currently aimed for the industry, and plans for invasions have already been drawn. Invasion of Mongolia or Republican China or new territorial claims? In a matter of days, Pu Yi's plans will be revealed...

This looks really interesting, though if Germany had won they would have kept Astrakhan. :)

Is Mongolia still a puppet of the Soviets, with them being defeated in the Great Patriotic War?

Kasakka: As Soviet Union was being beaten up, they had to end their support to Mao Zedong and cancel all their plans on invading Asia, and so the communist regime slowly collapsed.

Chamboozer: No it isn't, you will find out soon when I finish the second chapter.

Chapter II: Goodbye Lenin!


January 14th - February 28th 1948

Emperor Pu Yi wanted to finish his dream before 1953. As soon as possible he placed thousands of men to the border of the Leninist Mongolia. The divisions don't just consist of those from the former Manchukuo and Mengkukuo, but also of imperial japanese divisions who fled out of their humiliated homeland, and communist refugees from the Mao Zedong's collapsed Communist China.

Mongolia had been a Soviet puppet and ally in the World War 2, but after the Soviets cancelled their plans for the Eastern Asia, Mongolia became fully independent and chose a white peace with the Germans.

Soviet Union, with it's limited army, doesn't have enough divisions to attack China, and the relations with the neighboring Free Russia have been going down as numerous border incidents have happened. Their nation also has claims only on their former territories, and so, attacking down to south would just cause more partisans and a full-scale war.

On January 14th, the invasion of Mongolia began:

mongolia_declaration.gif

Mongolia simply had no army or any preparements, but they should've been a little more awake. Their government offered peace on the 20th of January, but this war isn't about that. This war is for the unification of all the Chinas to one huge empire!

invasion.gif

While the divisions marched towards Ulan Bator and Khobdo, the formerly neutral Republican China made the first sign of aggression, placing 2 divisions of troops onto every neighboring province. Not yet a war declarement, but to Pu Yi, a sign that something must be on the plans. The industrial base of the empire is growing and more and more divisions are being deployed. A small airforce was established of what remained from the Manchurian planes, but it's not capable of long range operations nor strategic bombardment missions.

On other news, Mahatma Gandhi has been murdered in India, and the people of Sri Lanka have declared independence. Relations between U.S.A and Germany are going down, and Indochina, the French puppet state, is on the brink of collapse as partisan rates are rising all over the country. Albert Speer made a masterplan of new Berlin, but Germany went with No for his plans, and meanwhile Germany has been shaken by waves of partisans all over the Eastern Europe:

german_revolts.gif

On February 28, Di'1 Man'chu Jun has arrived in Ulan Bator.​

mongolia_annex.gif

The first part of the Chinese reunification has been accomplished! Pu Yi is happier than ever, and the national dissent has gone down in great speed. New factories and materials of Mongolia are now ours, and the brave armies are welcomed by cheering crowds!

I like the idea, (China AAR's FTW!)but why would the United States take out Japan but allow their puppet state of Manchuria to remain? Historically, they flew Nationalist troops into Manchuria to accept the Japanese surrender.

Chapter III: Sinking off Sinkiang


sinkiang_map.png

March - July 1948

After the annexation of Mongolia it became clear that Imperial China was serious about it's territorial claims. Republican China has the same claims, but doesn't want them united by force, and their nation is more into defending itself from others. It also became clear who would be the most likely nation to be taken over next.

An attack against the Republican China was planned and almost done, but the nation of Turkestan had claims for Sinkiang. They suggested Military Alliance to Pu Yi, but then the claims for those lands would have been lost. Alliance with Russia is more likely with the Imperial government influencing it time after time. In the future, both Turkestan and Siberia could be split between Russia and Imp. China, to clear any threat.

But yet again, it was time to march our glorious troops to another nation.

sinkiang_declare.gif

The invasion of Sinkiang was no different than the one of Mongolia. No resistance was met at the borders and there was only one province that had to be captured, in order to annex the place. All the divisions were upgraded to use the newest equipment.

INVASION...​
sinkiang_invasion.gif

...AND ANNEXATION​

sinkiang_annex.gif

Sinkiang was taken off in notime. Now, the Imperialist China borders Afghanistan, Turkestan, Tibet, Primorsk, Rep. China, Soviet Union and Korea.

Tibet is also on the plans and would be just as easy to take over as the former ones, but moving on the mountains would just take too much time. That's why the next target is the Republican China! More divisions have been placed on it's borders, some units are as huge as 9 divisions now, and the place can be invaded from 3 different directions. Their border activity has risen up too, and even though the Imperial army is far larger, more divisions and attachments are needed, and the actual invasion must be prepared.

Pu Yi himself, and his generals are planning to use the riverlines on the advance. 2 major rivers go through the Republican China, and they are going to be the basis for the attack which must go all the way down to Indochina. The troops must cross the green "Borderline", and quickly rush to the orange "Defense Line". Then the key provinces and industrys captured, and the nation forced to surrender.


battleplan-1.gif


From May to July, peace has remained all over the world, but Imperialist China has it's troops prepared. New techteams are available, and the industry is producing huge amounts of gear and training new troops. After the Imperial-Republican border is guarded by totally overpowered troops, war can be declared..

My relations to Turkestan and Priluki are good, like, +23, but with the Rep. China and Tibet, -65. Relation with Soviet Union is also something like -50.

For some reason Germany doesn't want me to her alliance even though Italy would :(

Good that Imperial China's (IC :p) infantry isn't obsolete. So you will DoW Tiber after you take care of RoC? And have you built transports, since you will have to invade Taiwan. ;)

Chapter IV: March to the Dragon's Lair


On the 12th of August, it happened.​

rep_declare.gif

Pu Yi marched dozens of army divisions over the borders, and the great war for the reunification of China began. Chiang Kai-shek, the emperor of Republican China, had centered his production to air force and navy, which both were totally useless when the imperial army striked from multiple directions.

invasion-1.gif

In not less than 3 weeks, almost all the divisions crossed the bordering river to the other side, and headed to the targeted Defense Line. Republican Armies on the border of the former Sinkiang were soon trapped and destroyed. Immediate victories on Tianshui, Kaifeng, Xi'an and Lanzhou made emperor Kai-shek beg for peace, but the armies marched on. Small amount of defeats happened, but the counterattacks were stopped. Panicking armies of Republican China didn't have time to even retreat before the imperial troops captured the next provinces.

2stassault.gif

The army and industrial capacity of Imperialist China have finally shown their total might. Chiang Kai-shek, who could have done exactly the same as Pu-Yi, acted like a coward and approved a Social Democrat government. Pu-Yi, on the other hand, moved to strong rightist government and hawk lobby. Territorial claims last as always.

The nations around China are not too happy about all this, and relations have been going down. But that is not a problem; China can stand on it's own against any invader. Korea has strenghtened it's small army, and border activity has increased. That is why Korea is now being treated as a threat, and plans for an invasion are ready.

The Axis nations, now known as the European Union are not accepting Imperialist China to their alliance, for an unknown reason. Germany has been in a total silence, and no information about their political situation is known. Adolf Hitler still leads the country. A thing known as Generalplan Ost has been established in both Finland and Germany. Finland is resettling war refugees to the Kola peninsula, and Germany is using unknown methods to clean Eastern Europe of it's Slavic population. Albert Speer still wants his Berlin Plan executed. A huge domed Volkshall would be built in the middle of the city, and huge streets built for marching.

And back to the actual subject, on November 8th, the Defense Line has been finally reached. The army will now be reinforced and upgraded, and then a total conquest will begin.

To be continued...
