Eighty years on: 17th September 1939

(being a report of the progress of a solo wargame campaign)

17th September 1939


Warsaw was bombed again.  St John’s cathedral was hit during Mass.  The Red Army invaded Poland from the east.

U-129 sank the British aircraft carrier HMS Courageous off south-west Ireland. The Royal Navy withdrew aircraft carriers from convoy escort duties.

Game day 17 – France

1st Infantry Corps moved south-east to the border with Germany, with a view to also being closer to any potential move by Italy.  The 1st Battleship Flotilla sailed to Oran on the north coast of Algeria (in anticipation of future events known to the game player).
