Here’s another update on my ongoing solitaire play of “World in Flames.” It’s November/December 1942. The Germans have taken Stalingrad and one of the oilfields in the Caucasus Mountains, but they just lost a big attack against a Russian HQ near Tbilisi. If the Germans can get four corps to the Turkish border, the Turks can join the Axis. But the snow is slowing them down.
Japan has taken most of the objectives it took historically; it is now focused on taking Free-French Indochina, Burma, and perhaps invading the USSR. The Americans, however, are about to invade the Marshall Islands and perhaps Guadalcanal. The Americans have also invaded and conquered Morocco and are now completing their liberation of Algeria. The British are pushing the Italians out of Egypt.
Overall, I think the Axis is doing better than historically, and the Allies are behind schedule. It’s been an exciting game!
