Pax Britannia Regional Message Board
Catastrophe! Two months ago the city of Providence fell into Germanic state hands, subsequently opening the road into Boston and beyond. News has reached Washington that defense of the city is impossible, and the majority of US forces there have begun a withdrawl from the city and region as a whole, preferring to save their strength and rejoin the main front rather than waste lives on the New England sideshow. The loss of Boston comes as yet another blow to the Wilson Administration, who had up until this point loudly claimed the rebellion largely contained. We now see this isnt the case.
General Aultman vowed he would return to Boston as he and his command staff took the final boat out of the city. The offensive into Pennsylvania has been reversed in a series of embarrassing maneuvers by cunning Germanic state general Adolf Ronel, an up coming star within the Germanic military. The stunning double blow that landed upon union forces near Philadelphia sent them running back south to Washington.
The Siege of Chicago has entered its eighth month, soldiers mail coming out of the city on navy ships stated "Its a living hell, Fritz shells us with artillery every day and every night, you cant do nothing against that but huddle in yer trench as low as you can go." Reports have it that much of the city has been turned into a muddy hell of trenches and earthworks. The germanic state forces seem content to simply let the city writhe on the vine until it starves.
Reported use of the Airplane grew last week as the first bombing runs were carried out by Germanic Air force pilots on targets within the embattled city of Chicago. In a spot of good news, the First of many divisions of Australian soldiers arrived in Saint Didacus. The splendid men from down under received jubilant and tearful welcomes from the civilians there while they boarded their trains eastward.
The Second American Civil War: The Reaction
It's been a month since word spread of the beginning of the Second American Civil War, The General-Secretary and The Council have been debating since then on how to proceed, both agree that the Federation should remain out of the conflict as a neutral party but the question on the Public's mind is; Who do we show our support to? The relationship between America and the U.S.F is a neutral one, The Council and General-Secretary have any animosity with both the Federal Union and the American people, however, The Council did share some concern after the Franco-German War when America took some of the Guinea and Indonesian islands and were in close proximity to our old ally the Cobol People's republic. However the Council wanted to avoid pressing the issue in fear of a Bloody, lengthy war.
The new state fighting the Federal Union, calling themselves the 'Germanic States of America' not much is known about the Germanic states of America aside from them being made up of the Germanic population within America, word has spread that they support a "National Socialist" type of ideology, similar to what the Flecyatians tried to employ before our interference and if this is the case, popular support for the GSA here will only continue to dwindle. In any case, The General-Secretary has announced that he will not be interfering with any side in the civil war until a decision is made on who to show support to but our guess is that it would be the Federal Union.
Fire on the Klarälven
In the months following Fellenburg's declaration of the Swedish Workers' State, multiple cities attempted and failed to join in his cause. An attempted uprising in Örebro was quickly quelled, and unfortunately ended in the death of the city's mayor. With Stockholm still undergoing reconstruction after its burning in the Great War, there were no major reports of any SMOC-backed activity.
Socialist forces were quick to launch a widespread offensive northward against the Swedish State Defense Forces (SSDF), which saw the under-equipped and under-prepared forces of the Swedish State pushed back to the banks of the Klarälven River. General Otto Lindensen, one of the top SSDF commanders, however, was able to stop the offensive at the town of Brattmon. Days later, the same forces were graced with the arrival of Arstotzkan White Army troops who succeeded in pushing back the socialists a great amount. As of the past week, offensives on both sides have been halted.
Amidst the chaos of this newly-arisen civil crisis comes the appointment of a new Chief of the White Army. Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerhoff, the Hallita's own son, was tasked with being the Army's new top commander upon the more recent retirement of the great Armo Astapa. Carl Mannerhoff was handed the promotion after his admirable work in the White Army in various positions during the Great War. Under his command, White troops have retaken key positions around the Vättern lake.
Although all offensives have been frozen, it is believed by many on both sides of the line that an upcoming series of assaults from either end could be imminent.
A notable strategy that was employed by General Mannerhoff was the use of an upgraded form of Eric Tigerstedt's famed creation: the plane. Most commonly, planes have been used for enhanced scouting over SWR territory. The young General also employed the use of bombing runs, with the calculated targeting of munitions sites that may supply socialist soldiers. With his tactics of enhanced scouting, Mannerhoff's troops were able to gauge the various abilities and positions of SWR forces.
The most notable of gains made by the rebels was in the central area of the Swedish State, where SWR troops made a concentrated thrust towards Stockholm in an attempt to reach the cultural and historic capital of the Swedish nation, despite its currently charred state. Chairman Gustavus Fellenburg, who has now cemented his position as the leader of the Swedish Workers' State remarked that the city is a key goal in the socialist war plan. Hallita Rubert Mannerhoff is expected to make a trip to Turku where he will deliver a speech regarding these recent developments.
Carsonist support rises again!
As the global economic crisis tears apart the larger nations, it has all but steamrolled the smaller nations like Peru. The young republic finds itself in crisis again as carsonist support rises again in the mountain and jungle regions of the nation. President Dianueva is expected to adress the crisis later this month in a nationwide radio broadcast.
Lima still open
President Dianueva has guaranteed the US federal government that all loyal US ships will continue to be able to dock amd refuel at the ports of Lima. Peru is also willing to provide food and ratiosn for any troops coming to the port.
