Just a month’s worth of action in this report, which almost completely centres around action in and around the Mediterranean.
The two months following our recapture of Egypt are spent pushing into Libya and generally making life difficult for the Italians. Germany, meanwhile, is making life hard for us in the Atlantic. Things are also kicking off in the Middle East.
Finally, it’s time for the decisive battle against the Italians in North Africa. Troops have been building up on either side for a long time now for what will doubtless be an epic confrontation.
Well, it’s been an eventful four months. The highlight (and low point), is Germany’s Declaration of War against Belgium, the Netherlands and poor old Luxembourg: an echo of the First World War’s Schlieffen Plan, bypassing the Martinot Line and quickly bringing France to its knees.
In the two or so months since our latest report, we’ve made decent inroads into Ethiopia but have had several disastrous naval encounters, mostly due to the rank stupidity of our Supreme Leader.
Matters proceed apace over the next few months, with British and German naval forces playing cat and mouse with each other in the North Sea.
