The start of May June 1940 and the French brace themselves for the inevitable German onslaught.
Both sides will conduct interesting diplomacy I think this turn.
The intent is for the Allies to now focus upon Yugoslavia aggressively, driving to A2 then A3 as quickly as possible.
The Germans buy a tank Corp!….another one! Placing it in Essen.
Axis goes for Romania spending 30 pts to subtract 3 from the die roll. Needing just a 2 or less. Success.
They move to G2. DOW on Belgium.
Here it comes:
The Belgians and Netherlands forces man the defenses. The hordes attack!
The Germans line up 1Ne and 1st Be with 10 +1+1flank+1 air
2 for +2 for marsh. Ends up a ½ result. The 1NE retreats the Rotterdam.
Belgians are attacked with 15 v 5 max col +2 Rolling a 9 he eliminates the Belgians
10+1flank+1 tech net +6 1 step loss each.
2x Inf Russia
2x inf Fr and 1 for the British
June July 1940
Axis Purchase: 2 Armoured Corps.
Axis Diplomacy: Romanians move to G3.
This turn Germany attacks Rotterdam, just east of Belgium and the forces East of Brussels also come under direct attack.
The French knock 1 unit to abort.
+7 attack rolls a two. 1/1 result
The attack East of Brussel yields another 1/1 result.
VII Pzr and 4th Army smash thru the French. And enter the outskirt of Brussels.
1/4 result, this forces a big retreat and eliminates 2 Corps worth of French forces.
The follow up Atks:
IIPzr attacks Rotterdam which falls adding 20 MSU to the Axis and the 1Be is attacked, by 1& IIIP and it evaporates. The Belgian power does not however fall as Antwerp still stands!
