World War 3 - German AAR

#1 Post by Seprinth » Jul 22 2008

Playing in world 2020

It is January 26, 2028. i am in my 3rd term.

My economy has being in recession for the past 3 to 4 months. I have over 50,000 in GDP/C
and over 6 trillion in GDP it self. I have invaded and annexed Czech republic, Austria, and Denmark.

I currently have about 120 million people in my country. I am allied with france, and have many other diplomatic pacts with them. I also have a non-aggression pact with Italy.

Image

Currently my main objective is to take poland, i have 3 fronts for sure, maybe 4 if switzerland declares war on me.

Look at the top countries:

Image

as you can see i already lost 71 thousand troops in my previous 3 wars.

My military:

Image

and my finance:

Image

trade is also keeping my country from collapsing

Here is a more close up view of the fronts.

eastern front
Image

if you look close enough you can obviously see i have land fortifications.

and a look at the northern front(denmark)

Image

i just have to hold off the swedes over the bridge.

and of course the western front:

Image

The low countries should fall with ease.

I start my attack on Febuary 15, with in 12 hours all of the dutch lines fall.

Image

My first attack, was by infantry. than will come in the mighty leopard tanks for the final assault.

Image

The enemy are holding a town called hengalo. i have air support and we are tring to take that town as our top priority.

Image

all of the dutch lines falls.

so far on the 2nd day of the fighting i have lost 3400 troops and the dutch have lost close to 10,000.


Image

continue advance on northern half of neatherlands.

Image

moving in on amsterdam, the capital of the neatherlands.

Image

war with belgium starts, i imediately blitzkrieg towards brussels.

Image

brussels in sight.

Image

the whole of the western front, belgium has declared war on me, and soon i myself will attack luxemburg.

Neatherlands is about to fall. Losing about 90,000 troops she should. With belgium at a death toll of 41,000 troops. I dont expect them to hold out much longer at this rate.

Image

Neatherlands last breath of air

Image

luxemburg is invaded, i use france to sorround this tiny country.

Image

they only have one garrison in capitol.

Image

military death tolls(ive ben in 3 wars already)

Image

the german army rests.


Image

after taking the low countries my population is at 151 million, and my economy is getting better! I NEED MORE LAND! my next target is poland...

Image

The Wermacht moves towards poland...

Image

One the eastern front, ready to invade. Ill easily have 500,000 troops attack first. Warsaw is the non Fog of war area, in the middle of poland. I have made a hot spot for heavy air support.... Poland and all other eastern countries will fall with ease. Except of course russia.

The war with poland is declared, they have about 150,000 troops compared to my staggering 1.55 million, and they are growing!

Image

it has being declared.

Image

toying with the poles in only sending infantry, until the heavy leopards come.

Image

or just a mass assault of everything.

Image

the poles begin to show tear and wear against the brute german army, i hope they dont get encircled.

Image

the switz get involved.and catch me off guard too

Image

Image

than slovakia, and hungary get involved.

hmmm simple all fronts going good.. i didnt think id being doing this good... im gonna break the pact adn invade italy.

Image

Image

the alp front opens up, the italians show little force...Only attacking with little or more than 20,000 troops. Easily held off by fortifications and the already present german army there.

Image

soon after, the UK joins in. Now this will be interesting how this plays out... sence i dont have a very good navy and wont be able to transport any troops..

Image

casulity list

Image

closing in on warsaw

Image

The greater german army! our supplies our thick and men willing. The greater 4th reich will be reached!

Image

the northern front... maybe i should put an offenisve up there as well?

The russians have also declared war.. soon all of eastern europe will be at war and soon will fall... how will the russians put up with my army? they have a good sized army of 1.90+ million, they are bigger, alot bigger... especiallay at when im at war with alot of other countries. But i have way bigger build capacity and i shall begin my attack on....FRANCE! they are doing jack ****...and will soon see leopards rolling through the roads of paris, as did there great grand father which are the panzers.

Hey Seprinth,

Interesting reading, nice speedy pace and lots of pics which I like :-) I just hope you are not overextending yourself. :wink:

I have a quick question for you if you dont mind, are you letting the AI control any of your trops or are you issuing the orders on your own? Any use of hotspots etc?

Cheers

The Ai is on medium initiative, or something of it. So the AI will move the troops, but not a great deal to open up fronts. I will turn on the initiative higher for there own occasions. like right now the fronts are so spread apart and my economy is heading towards the worse. So i have the ai set higher, so i dont have to do as much micro(and i like the speed on normal). But as you see with one of the pics, i am indeed sending a large number of battalions(or w/e size the unit figures represent) toward poland.

Yes i use a great deal of hotspots mainly for combined air/land offensives. beCause i still dont grasp controlling air all too well. but there fantastic too use against key points, and well guarded low visibility and urban areas.

hope that clears it up

I shall spread the war too none other than my only ally... France has not done a thing. The French think they will be safe as long as were allied...

Well say goodbye too it and all the free western europe, will go too.

I will declare war on France...and i will storm paris!

But first i have an abundant amount of artillery and leopards sitting around on the Souther front or Alps front. Italy will be shaken by German artillery!

Image

the invasion of france

Image

After the invasion of france commence, i decided to take out italy! After all they wont putting much an effort to hinder me from my conquests, so i figured they were weak. I assembled lots of artillery to take down all garrisons from afar.

Image

meanwhile in france, im getting fairly close in capturing paris, im encircling it at the moment.

Image

and back to the southern/alps campaign you can clearly see it paid off.

Image

The switz are just bairly holding on, they lost over 70,000 troops!

Image

encircling in progress

Image

complete, how long can they hold out?

Image

the great german empire

Image

just as belarus country is about to fall, i forget about russia! there T-80S are smashing through the border!

Image

casulity list

Image

Closing in on the capitol of ukraine!

Image

and the capitol of Romania!

Image

Russian advances and belarus and ukranian partisans are hindering my eastern front advance.

Image

closing in on the great city of rome!

Image

The siege of rome last about 5 days, and the city it self was almost destroyed the population went from 2.4million to 800,000 people!

Image

after the fall of rome italy last defence on the heel of the boot.

Image

the current state of the war!

Germany has lost over 1.12 million soldiers! And i added up the total civilliand deaths, through very rough HIGH estimation of 6 million civillian deaths.

i cannot seem to take FRANCE, i have Paris completely ENCIRCLED and the supplies are red. But my men cant even take an outer town! Ukrain has counter attacked and made a bulge in the line, which i am taking advantage of and encircling. And romania has encircled about 50,000 troops! GOD!!

the Russians are just heating up there invasion of my great empire and the DAMNED SWEDES destroyed all my transports!

Alright finally.. Well i have to say is this. Ive ben sweating over here... Ive reloaded the game 5 times!! Because i kept losing the elections and couldnt get military support up(I DIDNT HAVE OPTION OF MILITARY SUPPORT AT 99%!!). Any ways i got the apporval rating up at a huge cost... I lowered all taxes to complete zero... and i highered social spending all the way and built a **** load of factories,power etc...

So now i have another 4 years... and what a 4 years they will be! because my economy is completely scrapped! And My military oh my god... i cant even take over PARIS!! I have to lower funding big time to get out of the negative income.... i hate being in debt... and that is what i am in right now.

Ive decided im gonna lower my military staff to about 1.85 million instead of 2 point w/e million. But im sure i will do fine either way, i have made phenominal progress everywhere ive fought so far... except i cant seem to take or even get near the capitals of romania, russia,serbia and ukraine. So will have to see how it plays out.

Frankly im a bit worried on the war was going so i made Berlin into my own "bunker city".

Image

Now...realy? would i care all too much, where? or HOW, they would come? no

Image

I took paris, 2 months of fighting have paid off!

Image

here is the casulity list... i lost 450,000 men in the past month...but those are just military deaths! now look at this...

Image

Image

Image


Image

Image

Imagine getting those every day! So clearly my army is the scourge of hitler!

Image

and it seems i patted the back of my army far too soon, paris is back in the hands of france!

And a new threat has risen! SPain is taking my land by 1,000KM2(SQUARE) a day...

Image

i better stop them before they get too strong for me..

Image

and by the end of the month of september, they are pushing north, and have claimed major cities in western Germany!

Image

i have lost over 2 million troops. But the total deaths are not that staggering in military.. but the civillian death toll is well over 14 million. My garrisons at the moment are the only thing keeping me alive... i have bairly any actual military battalions(even though i have 1.9 million troops!).

I fear ill end up like my last 2 counter parts... so i will begin to make more land fortifications and not send off an offensive! I shall kill as many men as possible before i go out!

Most of your garrisons deep in your own territory are probably sapping you.

Hello!

The current state of the war...in ARMY SIZE.

right now i only have about 1.8 million.

with the allies(Russia,Ukraine,serbia,spain,Romania,france) Having easily over 4 million.

The big contributors being Russia at 2.55 million. Spain at 612,000, and Ukraine at 544,000.

Spain,Russia,Ukraine are hell bent out of getting as much land as possible it seems... With france doing nothing and italy just taking back there land. I beleive Spain has come out the true european power. If i had not broken through the french lines and open up that small area the spaniards would of never have touched me. They were the sleeping giant...and they might be the death of my country if i dont play my cards right.

here is an indeph look at the numbers.

Image

as you can clearly see i lost the most Military Casulities, but they how ever have lost way more civillians! If Supreme Ruler 2020 had that option to view civilian casulities... i would think they would add up too 15 million!

And of course im fighting on all my fronts except of course the northern, which i abandoned completely. I may pick it back up again if i can stop france from entering neatherlands(they already have western germany!).

also id like to say the 20,000 swedes that died were due to heavy bombing! I can only imagine how many civillians i killed of it.(reason saying i sent about 50 air jets to stockholm at the beginning).

Image

As you can see, from this. Spain has is taking over occupied belgium... now im hoping my garrisons can hold out so i can launch an counter-offensive! If they cannot, i shall use my army from berlin to attack.

Image

Looking a little closer at the spanish offensive in belgium...I have a large number of Garrisons in the area, with one cannon fodder and completely circled in the west. They are using mostly tanks, and i have but on infantry there. And a couple helocopters that dont seem to be doing muuch but retreating. Im gonna have to send my Berlin Defence force over there and push them back.

Image

The counter offensive was a complete success!

But the civillian Death toll was ammense over 3 million died! And the city of brussels was OBLIDERATED by my bombardment! WOOOPS!

Image

Image

The counter offensive was in deed successful... but it did not last. After 4 days of pushing them back they reinforced with so many it was impossible to keep up...

Image

They came with so many so fast... They have just pierced the heart of Germany... idk how much longer ill last. Spain has well over 700,000 and my 1.5 million is dwindling ever so quickly... Although Ukraine and Russia havnt even reached warsaw yet... they are getting very very close..

Image

And now my eastern most town has fallen to the RUSSIANS. DAMNIT!

Shortly after they Russians capture warsaw...


Image

And the Spanish are realy starting to piss me off... no matter what i do... they just keep coming! Im bombing the hell out of there units... but to no avail. Not even affecting them. The Americans must be supplying them...

Image

And here is a pic where the last of my troops stationed in the western front are holding out.
You can also see that they have pushed through by Denmark...and our closing in on Berlin!

Image

And right now i dont feel to comfortable...

Image

Air strikes are my only offensive right now, and i will use them and try to halt them as much as i can...
But even i cannot stop the fiery russians... After a couple of days and thousands of deaths to the russian army they reach eastern berlin...

Image

as you can see i have many garrisons ready for the defence.

Image

But more and more russian tanks keep appearing.. it seems i can hold them off though. But when spain comes from the west ill be completely cut off from the rest of germany.

Image

A few more days later. The whole of Germany has being cut in half and it seems i do not have much longer.

Berlin is highlighted in the green box... As you can see im now under siege not completely sorrouneded yet...but my garrisons are falling like dominoes. And i am trying to hold out. I have many fortifications and its gonna be intresting too see how well they hold up against the russians and Spanish. The spanish have just captured my last Airport fabrication and i have bairly to no airforce, my luftwaffe is completely dead... They served me till the end so i am satisfied with them, however if i had a couple leopards i beleive i could push these men back but i do not have enough time to do so...

Berlin may fall in 5 days to 5 months so it will be interesting to see how it plays out.

Im afraid this might be my 2nd to last post... My army is completely obliderated. And Berlins outer defences are falling like rocks.

Image

There are closing in fast and hard, the spanish are coming in force for the siege, while the russians seem to be holding back a little bit.

Image

THe outer fortifications have fallen and only a number of fortifications still exist that werent destroyed they are only using land forces... but my army is still falling ever so quickly.

Image

and than looking at the other battles in central germany

Image

and southern germany

Image

Berlin and its outer areas are completely occupied and only a hanful of garrisons remain.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Berlin is completely cut in half by russia and spain.

Image

The spanish have walked into the main city

Image

and the spanish are now attacking occupied denmark.


Image

not even a year after the war began it seems my fall in imminent. If only the ALLIED diplo work... i wouldnt of attacked France if they contributed in the war...

My downfall was simple... i didnt watch spain. I was too focused on Russian front, think they would come in force which they did not for reasons unknown. I pushed the Russians back almost reaching moscow. And than i look at the western front and Spain has france almost completely under its control, And by that time it was too late. No matter what i sent, or how many i couldnt defeat them.

lol, im passed that i deleted the saved game and im playing as different country.

it was impossible for me to do anything realy, cause i could be re elected with my economy being destroyed.

But after thinking about the game, the spanish where in deed not my downfall. As i just remembered i sent a large force and pushed the spaniards all the way to madrid.

After i got re elected my economy was realy bad so i tried to lower military training which was a realy bad idea, and stop production. After that i was screwed i couldnt build a force to stop the allies. Even when i maxed out maint and training, i suppose the spanish are russians where just a snowball rolling down a hill.
