Germany Turn One Recommendations
Purchase 8 infantry and 1 transport.
Much depends on what the Russians have been able to do, but
essentially concentrate your airplanes and any remaining subs and the
Baltic transport on taking out the British fleet.
Two units (1 fighter, 1 sub or 2 fighters) should be sufficient to
take out the Gibraltar battleship.
The remaining fighters and bombers and naval units would probably
best be used against the British fleet off the UK coast. Again it
depends on what the Russians have left, but you’re probably better off
focusing everything on the main UK fleet. If you have enough firepower
to kill the main UK fleet in two turns, you may be well served by
sending the Western Europe fighter to take out the Canadian transport.
The important thing is to concentrate enough force so that the UK
battleship in that main UK fleet only gets to roll a maximum of two
turns on average.
If the Russians haven’t invaded Finland/Norway, it may be a good
idea to do an evacuation attack. This is where you do a one round attack
against Karelia with all the tanks and infantry that can reach from
every territory, in order to get the tank and those few infantry out of
a certain deathtrap in Finland/Norway. They essentially get to fight
their way out. After one round, you pull back into safety in Eastern
Here are the important things to remember about attacking a Russian
1. Never leave your tanks where they’ll likely get killed. If
you’re about to win a territory and will only have tanks defending
it – retreat.
2. Calculate expected first round average casualties and make
sure it’s a smart idea. You’ll kill more than they’ll kill,
and unless they get extremely lucky, you won’t lose any valuable
tanks or planes.
3. Don’t leave a mid-sized stack of infantry out away from your
main army. If you stick it out, the Russians will chop it off. Clump
as much as possible.
Resist the temptation to move or fight with your Mediterranean
battleship and transport. Go ahead and transport two additional infantry
across into Libya.
March the Algerian infantry south to take Fr. West Af. Blitz your
tank south and back up into Libya.
