Wow, J. Edgar Hoover as leader of the American Federation?!
This mod looks very interesting, I might actually try it.
Do try it, it's a very fun althist mod if you want a rest from Kaiserreich. Read the AAR (which inspired the mod) too if you have the time, it's really like reading actual history.

Myeah, I skipped the years from 1936-'39 ... there were some meetings between the leaders of the alliances and other conferences ... but I want to go straight to the important things.
And yeah, Batavia is really weak. They have few divisions and I can reach their VP very easy, before the French could reinforce them.

I'm not at war with the League yet.

Any hope of a big encirclement is gone ... Belfort is lost.

IRL the Dutch surrendered after a mere five days, so there's that.

I hope the French do well, but they really don't have the fortitude to wage a two front war.

Let's have some small dev notes:
Originally the Dutch were part of France proper, but that wasn't exactly doing the AI a favour; they spread their units way too thin.
Conversely the Occitains used to stay a French puppet but that just meant Iberia was eating the south while France didn't care.

The Fall of France



The French managed to defeat us in Dieppe, it looks like they are trying to encircle Paris !


The encirclement was short-lived as we liberated Chateau-Thierry.


December 16th, the British landed in Brest. France is doomed.


The French fell right in our trap. They tried to encircle Paris, now we encircled Dieppe.


The French, having nowhere to go, surrendered. They are prisoners of war now.


France is now fighting on 4 fronts, and they are losing on each one...


The French army lost it's will of fight .. they got crushed in Verdun !


Vorwarts! Vorwarts !
France is refusing to surrender !


On February first, 1940 our forces met the Iberians !


Nothing can save France now.


On February 27th, 1940. France, with no more army and territory, surrendered.

Fight on 4 fronts - quite unenviable situation... Now to the South!

Are you going to create puppet France (after war)?

Hah. At this point, our dear alien king has been reduced to a villainous Homura - rewinding time over and over in the hopes of finding an era that does not end with his demise.

Too bad he will not find any. No mercy for the Xeno!

The Fall of Italy



After the defeat of France, the German army was redeployed on the Italian front. It looks like we got there just in time, as the communists were making progresses.


The German Army surely changed the tide there. Bologna was taken and the communist forces remained encircled in Venice.


The pocket was crushed easily.


The communists are pushed out from northern Italy.


Rome is ours !


Nothing can save Italy now..


The Romans, in a stupid attempt of saving what remained of the peninsula, annexed the Commune of Italy.


This only helped us to achieve a faster victory.


Now, with the Western Europe secured, the Kaiser liberated France which will remain a loyal puppet, and he gave all of the Italian peninsula to the Lombard League.

Chapter XVIII:
The Second Invasion of Earth



If the Earth changed a lot after the battle from the Eiffel Tower, Sirus remained unchanged. The Souls didn't thouch the planet .. and so, by 1940, Xardas, the one who launched the Operation Doomsday and brought slavery to Earth for 300 years, is now the leader of the Sirussian Empire.
In July 19th he went to Earth, and undiscovered, he managed to create the transporter in Constantinople.
After 2 days, the Invasion had begun.


The 3 major alliances declared war immediately !


The Americans also declared war !


The German Army was quickly redeployed in Bulgaria and Roumania. The Kaiser decided that this menace must be finished as quickly as possible !


The Romans are outnumbered ... their resistance is futile. The communists are no longer a threat to the HRE.


On August 3rd the first German troops arrived at the outskirts of Constantinople.
The city could not be seen ... everything is dark in the area.


The first clash between the Germans and Sirussians started in August 4th 1940.
The Sirussians are already in high numbers ... our forces thrilled about fighting aliens got massacrated.


August 19th, 1940. A disaster !!! The Sirussians launched their secret weapons, the nuclear bombs in the Roman Empire and even Lithuania !!


Belgrade and Tirana got destroyed too...


The closest bomb to our troops was launched in Sofia. We can only thank God that we didn't decide to liberate Sofia earlier.
This is a total madness !


One more ally got hit by the nuclear devastation ! The capital of Roumania, Bucharest is destroyed !


Austria also didn't escape from the bombs. Szeged is a ruin.
