BBC Announcer: At dawn this morning, reconnaissance units of the Italian 3rd Division crossed the border with Poland, and engaged Polish border defences. The Polish army's response has been hampered by large numbers of fleeing civilians who have blocked major roads. Nonetheless, Major-General Stanislaw Sosabowski of IV Corps has informed the BBC that Italian bombers have been repelled by Polish fighter squadrons. He denied reports of Italian paratroop landings along the Danube, and claimed that Poland's armed forces were prepared to deliver a devastating counterstrike. The British government has declared its opposition to the outbreak of hostilities, and is attempting to mediate between the two sides. Your challenge is to craft a war between Poland and Italy beginning in 1941 with a PoD on or after 1st January, 1900. The specifics are up to you. Other large powers may be involved later on, but not at the start.
