grim news from australia...despite the heroic efforts of the commonwealth it appears as if australia will indeed fall
Was there an actual effort? Seems Australia was left empty. The country was sacked by England. All we got was GAR 1918, i.e. dummies filled with straw.
or will he turn his army of evil against the free loving soviets
Do you mean 'freedom-loving" or "free loving"? :lol:

news flash: western powers retaliate against german aggeression: western powers have returned to the continent in force with three surgical naval invasions testing axis coastal defenses...civilians in belguim welcome the liberators as allied forces push deep towards germany...could this signal the start of more invasions as the allies flex their naval power

spain: valiant spanish divisions still fight to delay the Hun's war machine while the british and french troops doggedly dig in to the sound of bagpipes for what can only be described as the final battle for spain...this reporter has lost count of the number of allied troops that have been rushed to the theater..surely an excess of 50 combined divisions must be preparing for the Hun's onslaught..bolstered by the polish defense of warsaw and the example of heroism set there (even to this day a week after the fall of warsaw the ghost of dead czechs keep the axis from occupying a now vacant city) the president of spain has declared that madrid will be held (judging by the axis failure to annex both poland and greece this boast seems more and more like a reality)...

mediterranean front: libya has fallen to the allied powers without a shot...civilians welcome the coming allied forces with open arms and vow to join the war effort...could independence for libyans finally be here?...italian navy has yet to appear and only vicous submarine action defines the theater....powerful french, spainish, free greek and of course english fleets remain vigilant

the far east: new zealand has fallen to the japanese forces...valiant reinforcements from portugal failed to turn the tide of the japanese forces and a wing of vichy french bombers were not enough to secure the evacuation of civilians as japanese warships turned their guns on defensless civlian ships...such atrocities seem common place for the japanese as civilians fleeing french indochina were machine gunned as they fled saigon....reports from the free chinese people lead the west to believe the dragon is beginning to awaken...british assualt on Bangkok stalls even as the allies cut naval supply lines...the commander of tank corps far east stated that only the arrival of fresh troops or american intervention can save the eastern theater...and with such a heavy commitment to defend both spain and the home isles those reinforcements seem far away...a major naval action took place in the waters off of saigon resulting in the loss of a japanese battleship and destroyer flotilla...british carriers catch a japanese fleet outside of air cover and soundly defeat it...once again allied naval power reigns supreme and england reaffirms its claim as the owner of the worlds ocean...could this then lead to the liberation of australia?

other news: the free french government announces the completion and activation of yet another major warship...a new modern heavy gunned ship has been dispatched to parts unknown to join her sisters in the fight against tyranny...this as-to-yet unnamed (for security purposes) french fast battlecruiser boasts cutting edge weaponry and speed...she joins her sister ship in projecting allied naval power...where her guns will fire is as yet unkown but fire they shall...fire for freedom...more ships are being laid down under great secrecy to ensure allied naval dominance and supremecy

The Underground Tokyo Times
An independent newspaper financed by the London Bank™.
London Bank™: A great place to stash your trade money©


Tokyo, April 1st 1940

As the war progresses, the raging Cheeto is cooling off his rhetorics, and the first defeats came as a reality check on this fragile and emotional leader who so lightly defied the League of Nations.

Australia and New Zealand have fallen through sheer number and treachery, the Imperial HQ having sent overwhelming forces there, and landed on undefended beaches. But thanks to the the English tactical leadership, the operation was delayed: of particular brilliance was the reinforcement of NZ, and the evacuation of Wellington followed by a landing in Japanese-owned Christchurch, right under the Japanese fleet nose! Several Fleet commanders were called back to Tokyo and reassigned to office duty in the wake of this tactical defeat. But both Australia and New Zealand were release as puppet government, mere lapdogs of Mad Cheeto, and with little interest in contributing to the war effort.

On the mainland, the Chinese leadership finally moved forward, and launched savage attacks on all the front. The rumours in the street of Tokyo is that many sons of Japan died in desperate battles to hold the line. For these soldiers, it was not 'Victory and Valhalla', but 'Defeat and Valhalla'. Apparently the Imperial HQ was able to throw reserves in and save the day, but not without serious losses. Army moral is said to be sinking at seeing so many enemies on so large a front. China sent countless units with little regard to human losses and was able to nearly destroy several divisions of Japanese and of the China-Nanking puppet regime.

In Indochina, Siam made the ill-decision to join the Axis, but thankfully the Allied leadership was ready for Siam's betrayal and quickly moved in to secure key mountain areas. Siamese units were ordered by the IJA to hold at all cost and were nearly destroyed in doing so, finally having to abandon their land with only bayonet-strength battalions left, and not having time to bury their dead. The Allies were able to align a strong front to face the Japanese Army, but the latter has been considerably reinforced, and the frontline seems to have stopped to move for the time being. The Underground Tokyo Times would also like to salute the arrival of an ARM divisions in Asia, which will undoubtedly stop the advancing troops of Cheeto.

Naval battles were also fought around Borneo and Saigon, but everyone was tight-lipped about this. Apparently one IJN surface fleet encountered a combined Allied CAG and surface fleet, and was attacked by it, with no chances to retaliate against the CV. One BB-II was sunk, and the rest of the fleet was in serious need of repairs, putting an end to the false dream of Japanese naval supremacy in the region. The IJN exact location is always hard to pinpoint, but it's apparently in dry dock undergoing repairs.

Communist China was created. I leave it to the imagination of the reader as to why Cheeto allowed a communist regime to be installed in Asia...

The people of Hong Kong also revolted and took arms, and 4 Japanese divisions were needed to pacify the region, creating further chaos in the Imperial command. The fake image of benevolent leadership Cheeto has been cultivating with a consumed art is cracking at the seam, as the masses are wondering why Hong Kong revolted if everything is so great in the Empire.

In sum, spring 1940 may very well mark the peak of the paper regime of Cheeto. While apparently still enjoying immense popular support, it cannot be long before reality catches up with this regime. It's only a question of time before Western interests return in the region, and perhaps this carnival of war will only help to insure the continuing dependency of Asia toward the West. The quick peace will be followed, we hope, by a total dismantling of the war potential in the region, with the usual guarantees offered by England. Likewise, we would like to see the new Tokyo Imperial Bank dissolved, and the previous free market conditions reestablished.

new flash: madrid has fallen...yet another of the worlds capitals has fallen under the boot of the Hun...how much longer can failure after failure haunt the allied forces...the Huns army is at the very gates of gibralter and seems unstopable...

the med: allied forces retreat from the spainish french borders to gibralter and dig in for what this reporter has been told is the final battle of the continent...powerful air wings were deployed and major land forces allocated to this defense...the loss of a many spanish divs not-withstanding the combined armies of britian and her allies prepare for the worst...all ready a major battle rages at jena...one the allies seem destined to lose again...with an early morning paratroop drop and preparatory air bombardement the attack came as no suprise...allied air wings sortied and were able to drive off the axis planes but suffered near catasrophic damage...with only a thin line between the german war machine and freedom moral is at an all time low...

europe: all is quiet after the daring naval invasions...german forces have now dug in on the beaches to stave off further raids...one brave cavalry corps was able to make it to germany proper before being cut off and defeated in detail...heavy damage was done to the german city of cologne...but the target of essen was not realized...

far east: NZ finally fell to the imperial japanese forces...a daring naval invasion of christchurch by the allied forces failed and NZ was puppetted by the japanese...another democracy falling under the boot of the axis war machine...allied forces have stabalized the front of siam and all seems quiet there...new heavy tank brigades now bolster allied armor in that theater giving the UK a decided advantage...but unfortunately the terrain of the theater prohibits those fine machines from being used in any but a small and localized manner...

other news: the allies seem to be at the breaking point...all fronts are just moments away from complete collapse...the german/czech armies are all but unstoppable and the japanese while still smarting over a minor naval engagement seem to be pausing before continuing their assualts...could the usa be next...the allies have sent diplomats to both the usa and ussr in the hopes of finding help...and the usa responded with a very generous lend lease bill that arrived just in time to save the english economy...no word from the soviets but surely they must realize once spain is conq that they are next on the plate of Hun cuisine...this reporter hopes that they will see reason and make this a two front war sooner than later...and further that the usa will continue to aid her fellow democracies who are valiantly holding out to allow them to better prepare for war...dark times lie ahead...will the soviets and the americans be the light that beckons in a new hope and a new era of peace?

The Furherr, though exceedingly busy, would simply like to note his shock and surprise at the fact that French forces have finally committed to a fight noting that, quote, "It's the first time we've seen any division of France's that isn't a few old men with sticks!"

The real question is, are the Allies actually committed to fighting in Southern Spain, or are they planning yet another 'daring' withdrawal as seen in France and Northern Spain where they simply withdrew all forces and let Axis patrols enjoy a leisurely walk through the countryside.
If only Republicans had been as active in trying to suppress COVID as they have in trying to suppress American voters.

Japan uses air recon, radar technology and espionage to find out where the Allies hide. That, or we simply follow the sign left by their retreating armies:

war news:

spain: the ever valiant and vigilant allies have yet again repulsed a major axis offensive aimed at the allied forces in southern spain...after a lengthy and very bloody combined air and land battle the allies can once again claim a victory over the hun...massive hun formations assaulted prepared allied entrenchements and were repulsed...one allied general stated the fighting was the most intense of the war with over 70 axis divisions involved...massive tank formations and at least two paratroop drops we involved...speedy allied reinforcements were key to holding...though the fighting was hand-to-hand on many occasions...allied airpower was unable to stop the hun planes who bombed key facilities and generally hampered allied movements...huge new hun airbases provide a home to a seemingly endless number of plains thus further isolating allied positions in spain...how long can the allies hold here...will the soviets continue to honor their proto-alliance with the hun or will they act in the name of freedom and spend their buck-o-five and open a two front war?

asia: allied fleets again clashed with IJN forces off Borneo...though inconclusive the allied forces were able to drive the IJN from contested waters...major IJN forces were sighted off the dutch east indies and were forced to withdraw by superior allied airpower...due to the nature of the fleets this reporter must ask: are the dutch the next on the axis chopping block?...dutch civilians are panicing fearing a japanese invasion (and subsequent inevitable machine-gunning)...allied supreme command has reassured the dutch that if their sovereignty is breached they will be welcomed into the allied fold and all effort to protect them will be extended...minor skirmishing took place in siam with tank corps singapore once again hammering japanese forces in the mountains north of bankock...new modern tanks were added to this corps making it one of the most advanced in the world...these crusader tanks supported by a heavy tank brigade of advanced matildas are the apex of allied armor advances...

med: minor fleet actions resulted in yet more italian sunk ships...is there no end to the seemingly bottomless well of italian cruisers and destroyers willing to throw their lives away to observe allied positions in north africa?...this reporter can assuer the citizens of the allied alliance that overwhelming allied naval forces yet patrol the waters of the mediterrainian...

the rest of the world: once again french naval might is shown by the launching of yet another battleship (whose name was leaked...jean bart)...this ship boasts the most modern weapons and armor ever placed on a surface warship and is even now steaming to an undisclosed location to help bring the fight to the hun....not to be outdown by his french counterpart the UK has launched the HMS Prince of Wales...this fast modern battleship saw her first engagement against IJN cruisers in the pacific...though her guns never fired as the battle was primarily a carrier action (in which planes from the newly commissioned HMS Illustrious (the most advanced carrier the world has yet seen) reportedly scored hits) she stands ready to ensure allied naval might is never challenged by the axis forces...rule Britannia
