    Rest the army before continuing. The French are not going to have more units to throw into the line in the next 2-3 weeks and it's better to have the army back to full capability before the drive to Paris.
    As the Maginot line has shown no defensive line can stand in the face of properly prepared attacks so fortified French infantry divisions just immobilize his infantry divisions.

      Aw hell....

      What about another concentric attack on the Brits? We won't get another shot at them with so much in our favor.

        Yup your right, I thought of this after I posted that. Kill the BEF then take a break.

            Update 8/40

            8/40 has passed with little fanfare. An attempt was made to press the advantage against the BEF and a tank bde and a full division were destroyed but it looks like the remaining elements have been withdrawn from the frontline. The rest period was well used. A few prep attacks were made across the Somme and down in Alsace-Lorraine to set up the new offensive. The troops are mostly well rested and with some luck the French lines should crack in two or three weeks.

            At sea we are still having difficulties stoping the convoys but thankfully the number of U-Boats keeps growing.

            There have been disturbing reports of armed gamgs roaming the mountains of southern Serbia. News of attacks on police headquarters, government offices have been noted as well as kidnappings and murders. Partisans would seem to begun operating in those distant mouintains.

              Looks as if we can impliment "Waltrude" and make a line-drive on Paris now, at the same time.

              This HAS to be finished in September, agreed?

                  The French Front Has Collapsed

                  The French front west of Paris all the way to the coast near Le Havre has disintegrated. German troops have arrived on the Seine and the MArne outside Paris. East of Paris and west of Nancy the French have fled the Maginot Line and the front is stretched to the breaking point. A single pin prick and the line here will also burst. The BEF is nowhere to be seen.

                  Il Duce, Benito Mussolini, has offered to have his nation join the German campaign in defeating the democracies. Italy's armies stand ready to enter France, Yugoslavia, Tunisia and Egypt. What says the German Reich?

                      Meh. This weekend will do.

                      It will probably take another week or two to finish off the French (2/10/40?) and I took the precaution of moving a Pz Div and three MSU to the Italian border. The others can move as you folks decide. While you are waiting on Exo you might want to consider what types of divs to send to Africa.

                      The question is what to do in Africa, try to hold near Tobruk or withdraw on Benghasi and El Agheila.

                      You guys can decide.

                        Well you can start by sending the MSUís to Africa. Also send 2-3 stacks (8-12) of Italian 1-4 infantry to kill Yugo partisans. You can also send a couple of German infantry divisions to help them as well as another couple to Italy in anticipation of being shipped to Africa. How many motorized infantry and Panzer divisions do we have?

                          I've got 15 x 1-4 and 5 x 2-4 ready to march into Yugo from the north, 2 x 1-4 and a 2-4 in Albania. They are on the way.

                          Current inventory is 14 Pz, 7 Pz Gr, 1 x 7-10 Motor and 2 x 6-10 Motor with another Pz, 7-10 and 6-10 in production. One of the Pz is in Austria on the Italian border (21st Pz)

                            Once France falls send the motor Div. to Italy.
                            Exorcist will have to decide what he wants beside that.

                              Converting the Pz Gr to Pz is a quick increase too,... then simply convert 6-5 to 8-8s this winter for the spring of 41. Some may have to join the campaign as it goes but the Wehrmacht can probably go into Russia with 20+ Pz and about 8 Pz Gr by 5/41. There is probably time to build plenty more infantry as well.

                              Oh,... might I suggest starting to rebuild the IRP pool. Its down to 18. With 20 factories plus looting France it should be affordable to start about 3 per month.

                                Good Idea, If you can slip some MRP also that would be good.
