    Blue = America
    Game = Making History: The Calm & The Storm

    With the United States annexing the entire world. I started out taking out Spain, Central America, South America, the Caribbean, and the eastern half of the Middle East. The other major powers at the time were busy fighting each other (UK, France, China, USSR vs Germany, Italy, Japan) to intervene in my conquest of all of the third-world countries. I then built up the cities in my newly annexed territories as advanced industrial cities, and I built an advanced transportation system connecting my territories, so I could virtually transport troops from North America to South America in only a couple of turns, and likewise transport between territories in other continents.

    I then invaded the Soviet Union, which at the time wasn't allied with The British, French, Chinese, or any other country (they were fighting the Axis on their own). With the USSR already losing on the western front, and me attacking them with several advanced tank divisions from the south (the Middle East), I quickly divided the USSR and cut off their supply lines. I then conquered both the eastern half of the USSR and the western half of the USSR before Germany could.

    I then annexed Mongolia and Tuva. I was amassing forces on all of my borders and preparing for war. I then launched an attack against the United Kingdom by using ships to escort tank transports and invaded the UK and Ireland. I did the same to New Zealand at the same time. While also invading China from former Mongolia, British India from the Middle East, the western Middle East, and Africa. I attempted to invade Australia the same way I invaded the UK and New Zealand, but the Australian fleet held me back long enough for a large multinational fleet to arrive and aid Australia in defeating my landing party and escort ships. I also declared war on and annexed Portugal.

    In the east I had spread my forces too thin and China was beginning to take some of my Soviet territories. I quickly launched a counter-offensive from my Middle Eastern cities, which I had set to building advanced tanks. And eventually managed to bring China down.

    After making short work of the Allies, I annexed Finland. Then the Axis declared war on me. I then launched a two-way assault against Germany, attacking from what used to be Russia and what used to be Spain, where I had been amassing troops since early on in the game. I then blitzkrieged straight to Berlin, and killed the heart of the beast that is Germany. With Berlin gone, I finished mopping up the remaining German and Italian territories. I decided to declare war on Sweden, but their massive navy was defeating my navy. And I threw my largest fleet at them too. So I signed a peace treaty with them, in which I forced them to cede the one territory I had taken from them already, and to join an alliance with me. This is the first and only alliance I had in the entire game.

    I then pushed the remaining Nazis out of Norway and Sweden, and focused my attention towards finishing off Australia and Japan. I moved in and island hopped to get to Japan, their fleet proved to be some challenge, but I eventually brought my naval forces over from Hawaii and Europe, and annexed Japan. Simultaneously while taking down Japan, I had managed to breach through Australia's naval blockade, and at that point I annexed them. When it was only me and Sweden left, I canceled my alliance with Sweden and declared war on them, and conquered them. And that's how World War II should have ended in real life. In your opinion, do you think this is how World War II should have been in real life?

    Intresting concept. However personally I disagree with Americans actually ruling the world as it would lead to mass chaos anyway and people would try to force themselves out of colonisation. What is this game by the way it looks very intresting?

    The game's Making History.

    Things were really working out great when I had conquered Latin America, the Middle East, and Spain economic-wise. But after I started to take out the rest of the world, starting with the USSR, I was starting to notice how I was relying almost entirely on my extremely large stockpile of supplies, since there were fewer and fewer countries to trade with. Being entirely self-sufficient and controlling hundreds of major cities put a huge strain on my coal supply, and eventually exhausted it. But despite this, I managed to conquer the world. In real life America's coal supply would probably take a very long time to restore and they would have make the coal income positive. I couldn't even do that in the game, so I can only imagine how hard it would be in real life.
