Spartacus Posted March 7, 2007 Report Share Posted March 7, 2007 Hi All - Glamdring wants to know how Great Britain was defeated. Well here is my take on the 31 turns. It all started one foggy morning when the leaders of Great Britain and Ireland signed a pact to defeat the old enemy - France. Forces were placed on mass, and the the decision was taken to ask Iceland to join us in this quest. When that decision was made that was when the fate of Great Britain was sealed. You see Iceland was a mole, a plant, a spy for the great USA / Canada alliance. Iceland was given land in GB, his job in the plan to invade France was to supply bombers and intel, the British and Irish governments sent vast amounts of money to Iceland who was to increase his inteligence network to field us with the intel needed to invade France. D-Day aproached and Ireland was to make the initial landing, bombers from Iceland were to bomb the landing zones first. Iceland did not saying that they were too well defended to make a difference. The Irish forces were left to die on the beaches. If the british were to follow they would have also died so they were sent back to port. Time for a re-think. France was to be the target so Portugal was recruited so we could land in Spain and attack from the south but now our suspicions were arroused about Icelands true intentions. Months passed by and evidence came to light that our positions were being offered to the Canadians. A forged report later and we had the evidence to support this. These false reports were handed to Iceland while the British forces were re-deployed to various corners of the British Ilse. Stockpiles of re-inforcements where re-distributed, AIC networks re-designed. But not enough time was available before Canada attacked. Canada made slow progress and was not considered a serious threat. When the US landed in Plymouth then thats when it got tough. The US Marines made inroads destroying AIC but the Britsh forces them back to the sea but by now the logistical nightmare had set in, no fuel, no supplies even with the help of the Portugese and Irish navy dropping supplies off there was not enough and while the USA were on the brink of defeat the Canadians had taken over most of Scotland. A final push against the Americans failed and the Icelandic traitors finally broke the TA with us. It was over, forces depleated, supplies gone and fresh forces attacking. The royal family was ordered to flee along with the british government. All in all it was our own trust in Iceland that defeated us. It was a classic case of never bring into your alliance a player you have not known or played with before. Myself and the Irish PM have played before and both know we can trust each other, its the first time I have played with the Portugeese player and I know now I can trust him. The Icelandic player, never trust again. Bust as I say, it was fun and that how it should be. Well played. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
