  1. Sir John Valentine Carden Survives. Part 2.

    Thanks for the clarification Artos I not the biggest fan of Sam Hughes even at the best of times and really view him in the same light as MacArthur but worse in some respects.
  2. Sir John Valentine Carden Survives. Part 2.

    If memory serves a lot of the Canadian conscription woes as well as supply woes came from Sam Hughes and his cronies in WW1. Heck if memory serves I think the first Canadian formation into Europe in WW1 was a privately raised and organised Quebec unit though I could be wrong.
  3. Sir John Valentine Carden Survives. Part 2.

    True that's why I I preferenced it with slightly better Thoresby. A lot can go wrong and a lot can go right at the end of the day for both Allies and the Axis when it comes down to it a lot will depend on decision made at various levels.
  4. Sir John Valentine Carden Survives. Part 2.

    The battle of the Atlantic maybe going slightly better given the big escort loss of Crete hasn't happened. Also hold Bengazi helps as well since it lessens the need slightly of having to run fast convoys through the Med to Malta aince you can fly aircraft from there to Malta to help keep numbers...
  5. Sir John Valentine Carden Survives. Part 2.

    Hmm makes you wonder if Anglo-French relations will be cold Post War in TTL since I think some sections of French society may conjure up a stabbed in the back or maybe the side would be a better term when it comes to the fall of France.
  6. Sir John Valentine Carden Survives. Part 2.

    That's more than likely going to be the sub skippers on the scene who ask that rather than BueOrd they remained obstinate about the whole torpedo issues for a stupidly longtime until they had their face ground into the issues.
  7. Sir John Valentine Carden Survives. Part 2.

    Given how big his ego is and the fact he is the textbook definition of a social general with more acumen in boardrooms and congress than he has in command of any form of armed force he will probably try and push for it. Also probably shaft anyone who he sees as a 'threat' to his Emperors court.
  8. Sir John Valentine Carden Survives. Part 2.

    I have to admit what RampRat just said made me wonder if Eisenhower would take MacArthur's role if he didn't get command in Europe.
  9. Sir John Valentine Carden Survives. Part 2.

    Yep also need to consider out east with the allied victory that idiot MacArthur may have a very good PR offensive but if he doesn't win any where the Australians and New Zealanders can probably oppose him if they choose to as well. Though he may still get in as well the bloody social general...
  10. Sir John Valentine Carden Survives. Part 2.

    Well for one if Weygand declares for the allies it means no Operation Tourch which means a lot more unblooded and unseasoned US Army, Navy personnel in Europe which probably means greater casualties. Throwing this onto the pyre as well the Americans will probably have a harder time military...

    Enjoy your holiday Allan
  12. Sir John Valentine Carden Survives. Part 2.

    Hmm looking back at Singapore and Malay I wonder if any of the Tank officers or the other new officers have run into or been collared by Ian MacAlister Stewart.
  13. Sir John Valentine Carden Survives. Part 2.

    Yep though there will be issues with other free french units if they join since the Free French are seen as traitors and vice versa which will be a pain to shepard
  14. Sir John Valentine Carden Survives. Part 2.

    Given if he jumped ship, he has a large army as well as controlling a part of Africa which is considered part of Metropolitan France he does have a strong bargaining postion.
  15. Sir John Valentine Carden Survives. Part 2.

    So if he is to jump ship it will more than like be to save his own skin.
  16. Sir John Valentine Carden Survives. Part 2.

    Bad times for the axis all round and given that Mussolini isn’t sending an expeditionary force to Russia isn’t much of a change but it seems like the Axis is pretty much done in NA. Early crack in the Axis in Europe too as well as Italian spirit's getting its teeth kicked in will mot serve...
  17. Sir John Valentine Carden Survives. Part 2.

    Did it try to ram that tank and just fail?
  18. A Better Rifle at Halloween

    You know the French are going to a bit annoyed when they find out about the Farquhar-Hill rifle because they were waiting to replace the Lebel Model 1886 rifle with a semi-automatic rifle.
  19. Sir John Valentine Carden Survives. Part 2.

    Yep, though, given that the Commando and Marines have been training up for that, it will probably be their bailiwick, at least initially, since they have amphibious tanks ready to iron out the kinks for that sort of operation. Though I think with the Greek Islands, they can afford to take their...
  20. Sir John Valentine Carden Survives. Part 2.

    With the way the war in North Africa about to be over for the time being I have to wonder if the the shortages in this case will be lessened to a degree. I mean with active operation effectively stoped in Europe till the Invasion of Italy and the Med effectively turning into a British and...
