Colonial Combat:

  • Britain vs. Egypt (15-5= 3-1 odds; DR=4, defender retreat.  Britain wins, no losses.)
  • Russia vs. Anatolia (43-20=2-1 odds, DR=5, defender retreat.  Russia wins, no losses.)
  • France vs. Kongo (4-1=3-1 odds, DR=3, defender retreat.  France wins, no losses.)

 

Casus Belli:

  • France and Italy vs. Britain in Egypt
  • Belgium and Britain vs. France in Kongo*
  • Ottoman Empire vs. Russia in Anatolia
 
*The British casus belli in Kongo comes not from a status conflict, but rather from the French violation of point #4 of the Treaty of Franco-English Amity (Treaty violation adds 5 to ETI, now at 6).
 

Negotiation:


Italy downgrades to an Interest in Egypt (+1 to ETI, now at 7)

Belgium downgrades to an Interest in Kongo (+1 to ETI, now at 8)

Britain declares war on France (+5 to ETI, now at 13)

Chinese Resentment:

 

New British Interest in Manchuria (+2)

Established British Possession in Hong Kong (+5)

Total Chinese Resentment is 7—no chance of rebellion this turn.


War:

There are two wars—the Russo-Turkish War, and the Anglo-French War.

 

The Russo-Turkish War:

 

First War Phase

 

Initiative Determination: Since the Turks have no allies, they are automatically the first alliance; the Russians are the second alliance.

 

First Alliance Maneuver: None

 

First Alliance Attack: 15-43 = 1-3 odds.  DR=2, Attacker Retreat.  Turks retreat to Quwait.

 

Second Alliance Maneuver: None

 

Second Alliance Attack: None

 

War End Determination: The Ottoman armies still exist, and the Russians are still on Ottoman territory, so the war continues (+2 to ETI, now at 15).

 

First Alliance Maneuver: Turks move 3A5 from Quwait to Anatolia.

 

First Alliance Attack: 15-43 = 1-3 odds.  DR=2, Attacker Eliminated.  The Ottoman armies are destroyed, with no Russian losses.

 

Second Alliance Maneuver: Russia moves 1A10 and 2A1 from Anatolia to Quwait.

 

Second Alliance Attack: Quwait combat strength is 2; 12-2 = 3-1 odds.  DR=2, Defender Retreat.  Russians conquer Quwait, with no losses.

 

War End Determination: The Ottoman armies having been destroyed, the war ends (+2 to ETI, now at 17).

 

Resolution: Russia gets a free protectorate in Quwait, in addition to the protectorate already established in Anatolia.  Russia brings 4A10 and 1A1 home, leaving 1A1 in Anatolia and 1A1 in Quwait.

 

The Anglo-French War:

 

Initiative Determination: Britain rolls a 4, France a 1.  Britain is therefore the First Alliance, France the Second.

 

First Alliance Maneuver:  Britain moves as follows—

1A10, 1A3 and 2A1 from Egypt to the Indian Ocean

3F10, 2F3 and 2F1 from Cape Colony to Indian Ocean

1A10 from Cape Colony to the South Atlantic

1A1 from Australia to the Indian Ocean

1A1 from Federated Malay States to the Indian Ocean

1A1 from New Zealand to Oceania

1A1 from Fiji to Oceania

1A1 from Gold Coast to South Atlantic

1A1 from Guiana to the South Atlantic

1A1 from Newfoundland to Canada

 

First Alliance Attack: None

 

Second Alliance Maneuver: None

 

Second Alliance Attack: None

 

War End Determination: Britain and France make a deal, so the war ends (+2 to ETI, now at 19).

 

Resolution: Britain and France sign a treaty stating the following:

Britain receives a codominion with France in Kongo

France downgrades to Interest in Egypt

Britain and France remove their Possessions in Guiana

 

Britain and France move their forces as follows:

 

Great Britain:

1A10, 1A3, 1A1 from Indian Ocean to Great Britain

1A1 from Indian Ocean to Egypt

3F10, 2F3, 2F1 from Indian Ocean to Cape Colony

1A1 from Indian Ocean to Australia

1A1 from Indian Ocean to Federated Malay States

1A1 from Oceania to New Zealand

1A1 from Oceania to Fiji

1A10 from South Atlantic to Cape Colony

1A1 from South Atlantic to Gold Coast

1A1 from South Atlantic to Kongo

1A1 from Canada to Newfoundland

 

France:

1A1 from Guiana to France

1A3 from Kongo to France

1F3 from Algiers to France

1A3, 1F3 from Cochin China to France

1A1 from France to Cochin China
