Casus Belli:

  • United States vs. Great Britain in Mexico
  • Germany vs. Great Britain (and vice versa) in Kamerun
  • Germany vs. France (and vice versa) in Nigeria
  • Japan vs. United States in Hawaii

 

Negotiation:

  • Great Britain and Germany agree to a codominion in Kamerun, per the 1880 Treaty of French Exclusion.
  • France renounces the Treaty of Wiesbaden and maintains its casus belli against Germany (+5 to ETI, now at 43)
  • Japan calls a Congress of Europe, to be held in Russia (+3 to ETI, now at 46).

 

Congress of Europe (held at Minsk):

  • The British Proposal:
    • Great Britain and the United States shall have a codominion in MexicoJapan shall downgrade to Interest.
    • The United States shall have sole control of Hawaii in the form of a protectorate.  Japan shall downgrade to Interest.
  • The Japanese Proposal:
    • Great Britain leaves Algeria, and France returns to sole control.
    • Great Britain leaves Cochin China and France returns to sole control.
    • Germany leaves Tanganyika.
    • Great Britain leaves Formosa.
    • Japan and the United States establish a codominion in Hawaii.
    • Great Britain leaves Mexico and the United States establishes sole control.
    • All signatories pledge congressional and military support for Russia's sole possession of Bulgaria and Manchuria should Russia move to control them, or Russia defies another power's attempt to control them.
    • Any remaining casus belli are resolved by Great Britain and Germany downgrading [i.e., Germany downgrades to Interest in Nigeria.]
  • The British Proposal passes, with Great Britain, Germany, Italy, and the United States voting in favor.
    • By voting for the British Proposal Italy violates the Treaty of Lyon (+5 to ETI, now at 51).
    • By voting against the British Proposal Russia and Japan violate the Tripartite Treaty of Asian Spoils (+10 to ETI, now at 61)
  • However, the Congress comes to an abrupt end as Japan declares war on the United States and Italy (+10 to ETI, now at 71).
    • The Congress has ended with none of the three original casus belli resolved (+9 to ETI, now at 80).
    • Russia and France join Japan in declaring war on the United States (+10 to ETI, now at 90).

 

First War Phase:

  • Initiative Determination: The Franco-Russo-Japanese are the First Alliance, the Italo-Americans are the Second.
  • First Alliance Maneuver:
    • Japan moves 3F10, 2F3, 2A10 and 2A1 from Japan to the North Pacific.
    • No French or Russian units move.
  • First Alliance Attack: No attacks occur.
  • First Alliance Supply Determination: All units are in supply.
  • Second Alliance Maneuver:
    • U.S. moves 1A1 from Hawaii to the South Pacific, 1A1 from the United States to the Caribbean, and 1F1 from the United States (North Pacific Box) to the North Pacific.
    • No Italian units move.
  • Second Alliance Attack: No attacks occur.
  • Second Alliance Supply Determination: All units are in supply.
  • War End Determination Phase: The war continues (+2 to ETI, now at 92).

 

Second War Phase:

  • Initiative Determination: The Italo-Americans are the First Alliance, the Franco-Russo-Japanese are the Second.
  • First Alliance Maneuver:
    • U.S. moves 1F1 from North Pacific to North China Sea (Great Britain gives coaling rights in Formosa), 1A1 from Caribbean to the North Atlantic.
    • No Italian units move.
  • First Alliance Attack: No attacks occur.
  • First Alliance Supply Determination: All units are in supply.
  • Second Alliance Maneuver:
    • Japan moves 1F10 from North Pacific to North China Sea, 1A10 and 1A1 from North Pacific to Hawaii, and 1A10 and 1A1 from North Pacific to Alaska.
    • Russia moves 1F10 and 1F1 from Russia (North China Sea Box) to North China Sea.
    • France moves 1F10 and 1F3 from France to North Atlantic.
  • Second Alliance Attack:
    • North China Sea: Russo-Japanese vs. Americans--21-1=10-1 odds; DR=6, DE; Americans lose 1F1, Russo-Japanese lose none.
    • Hawaii: Japanese vs. Americans--11-1=10-1 odds; DR=5, DE; Americans lose 1A1, Japanese lose none.
    • Alaska: Japanese vs. Americans--11-1=10-1 odds; DR=4, DE; Americans lose 1A1, Japanese lose none.
    • North Atlantic: French vs. Americans--13-1=10-1 odds; DR=2, DE; Americans lose 1A1, French lose none.
  • Second Alliance Supply Determination: All units are in supply.
  • War End Determination Phase: The war continues (+2 to ETI, now at 94).

 

At this point it became clear that the war could not be concluded before European Tensions hit 100.  As the first to declare war, Japan assumes responsibility for the start of the Great War.
