It was nice knowing you, de Gaulle. Doesn't look like the French Empire has anywhere left to go except straight into the dustbin.
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.
Dakar is indeed only just the beginning.And yet another Entente remnant is doomed. I'm sure, that Dakar is just the beginning, and that other natives will turn against their masters.
Peace is on the way.It was nice knowing you, de Gaulle. Doesn't look like the French Empire has anywhere left to go except straight into the dustbin.
Yeah... About that.Ahahahahahaha! Let the Europeans continue to kill each other! I'm sure the Reich will be able to keep the reds bottled up if the need arises...right?
About 3 divisions of 14 thousand strong, plus corps command and corps assets of about 3 thousand. Totalling up to around 45 thousand.How strong is the XIII Corps?
The French are in for a fight of their lives. A Peace with Honour however is not how this will end.The Imperials manage to buy a little time. I still don't think that they're going to come out of this with an unequivocal win, but maybe there's a chance they can fight to a stalemate and a new "Peace with Honour." (Not a very high chance, mind you...)
I'll just hint that this goes much further than just the Legations.Nothing like a little direct action on a May Day.
The situation in the Legation Cities has always been delicate, one hair's breadth away from some power or another simply deciding to step in and nationalize the whole thing (and most serious efforts to do so being stopped only by all the different members of the Legation Council ganging up on the one who tries it). I think someone has just given Japan the excuse it needs to do exactly that...
A degree of panic perhaps, but they do face a somewhat weaker foe this time to be perfectly honest. The threat of Syndicalism spreading to the Kaiserbunded Mittelafrika is however rather plausible, but Germany currently has bigger fish to fry as a result of the economic crisis.The slow collapse of Imperial France continues. The diehards may fight on to the bitter end, but they're long past the point where they could have turned the tide of this struggle.
That said, I do have to wonder just what effect the resurgence of the Internationale's fortunes -- and, in particular, a new major presence in Africa right next door to their colonies -- is going to have in Berlin.
Yes.Will British send any land units to Africa?
At least for those important enough to be notable, but unimportant enough to not manage to flee. Anyway the Internationale might be glad to get rid of them in the end.And with that the would-be French Empire is no more. I can't imagine life is going to be very pleasant for those pieds-noir who haven't managed to flee.
Thanks.I liked that exerpt form fictional book, it was realistic.
Well, that was predictable. I was only surprised that De Gaulle surrendered instead of making a heroic final stand.
The final entente remnant - Australasia - and the Reds will sign a peace treaty/ceasefire now?
A quick advance is the Japanese speciality.Australian government will pay the price for angering the Empire! Let's hope, that Japanese will be faster than the reds.
The fate of the Entente was indeed sealed for the most part following the intervention of the Americans. Mind you, I didn't really rig the game against the Entente.Australasia has sealed its own fate here; much as with Imperial France I don't really see any way out for them short of giving in to Japanese demands (which they'll never do on their own initiative).
