Eighty days on. 15th February 1940


The Finnish Commander-in-Chief decided to abandon the Mannerheim Line.  The Finnish 9th division surrounded the Soviet “Dolin” ski brigade north of Lake Ladoga.

 In the war at sea Hitler issued a directive that any ship likely to come under British control should be sunk without warning.  U-50 sank the Danish SS Maryland west of Scotland.  U-37 sank the Danish SS Aase  en route to Bristol.  U-26 sank the Norwegian SS Steinstad west of Ireland and U-48 sank the Dutch tanker MV Den Haag west of Ouessant. 

The Royal Navy announced that two U-Boats had been sunk.  German production of U-boats was outstripping the rate at which they were being lost.  U-65 was commissioned.

More than 1100 Jews were deported from the German city of Stettin to the Lublin region of the General Government.

Generalmajor Rommel took command of 7th Panzer Division.

Game day 168.  China
