Russian Civil War: April-June 1928


Overall:

With the condemnation of several Governments against the People's Republic of Archangelsk making it hard for Kamenev's case to be pressed across the world. While some foreign countries have managed to send currency to the People's Republic, their future looks bleak. The end of winter left Northern Russia as a hard terrain to move in, which meant that on the first months of 1928 Wrangel was mostly busy in reorganizing his supply lines and bleeding the leftists out (destroying an entire division in the main Archangelsk front). With the arrival of the spring, many believe the time for a decisive push to the capital is now.

War Info:

Provisional Government of Russia:

-Russian Army: 49 divisions (34 inf, 10 cav, 5 mil)
-Russian Navy: 1 BB, 3 CR, 4 DD
-Russian Airforce: 6 Fighter Wings, 2 Bombing Wings, 2 Transport Wings.

People's Republic of Archangelsk:

-Archangelsk Army: 12 divisions (8 inf, 2 cav, 2 militia)
-Archangelsk Navy: No navy.
-Archangelsk Airforce: 2 Fighter Wings, 1 Bombing Wings.

Chinese Civil War: April-June 1928


Overall:

The die had been cast as the Chinese Communist began their "march to the sea", an operation that if successful could place their rebellion in control of an outstanding number of resources. Focused mostly on the Nanjing front under Zhang Xueliang, the ICA had few forces to spare, forcing Chiang to send naval units to reinforce the city of Guangdong. It seemed a Communist victory was a possibility, until a surprise announcement from Tokyo saw a "volunteer force" of more than six divisions led by the renowned Jinzaburō Masaki, set to defend the South with Chiang's blessing. As the Communists finally reached the sea to the East, Lt. General Masaki wasted no time and recklessly launched a counter-offensive, using his well-equipped and professional forces to break through the militia and blunt their attack by creating a salient of his own. His move was followed by the ICA forces in the North, blunting the moves toward Nanjing as well.

Even as more and more smaller revolts rose in the countryside, the Imperial Chinese Army was working it's way through the main Soviets, crushing an entire enemy army despite the heavy losses from desertion and attrition. Alas, Chiang heavily misread the mood at Beijing and even among some in his officer corps, many seeing the "volunteer force" and the landing of Japanese troops in Southern China as a betrayal of the nation. With Chiang away to visit the frontlines, gunfire erupted across Beijing a day in late March, all communications seemingly cut. It is rumoured that the Emperor, the Legislature or even a fanatical group within the military may have attempted a coup in China's capital.

War Info:

Chinese Empire:

-Chinese Army: 48 divisions (39 inf, 9 cav)
-Chinese Navy: 2 BB, 4 CR, 10 DD, 4 SUB
-Chinese Airforce: 5 Fighter Wings, 4 Bombing Wings, 4 Transport Wings.
-Volunteer Force: 6 divisions (5 inf, 1 mar)

Communist China:

-Communist Army: 27 divisions (12 inf, 2 cav, 13 militia)
-Communist Navy: No navy.
-Communist  Airforce: 3 Fighter Wings, 1 Bombing Wings.

Second Balkan War: April-June 1928


Overall:

With the Bulgarian Army mobilized to fight despite it's evident disadvantage, it seemed as if the ambitious plans set by the Romanian and Ottoman General Staff would result in a swift victory like in 1903. Alas, it was not to be. Despite geographical disadvantages Bulgaria divided it's forces to allow for a slight numerical superiority in both fronts, protecting itself against the Romanians on the Danube and against the Ottomans with the Balkan Mountains and several fortified lines set in case of a "rematch-war". As the air battles raged across Bulgaria and the Bulgarian Air Force sustained heavy casualties, the crossing of the Danube proved a long and bloody affair for the Romanians, with sustained battles in attempts to establish bridgeheads and Bulgarian counteroffensives. The bloody battle of the Danube is still ongoing by late March, although the Romanian Army now has four bridgeheads established.

The Ottoman army did not fare better, often being pushed back in counterattacks by the action of the civil population, that often ambushed Ottoman units as insurgent militia attacked the supply lines. In the end, effort and the use of the Ottoman Airforce forced victory across the frontline and destroyed some retreating Bulgarian units. The Black Sea has been fully blockaded by Ottoman/Romanian forces, although large amounts of war material (even from European powers) have crossed into the land border.

War Info:

Ottoman Empire:

-Ottoman Army: 43 divisions (35 inf, 7 cav, 1 mar)
-Ottoman Navy: 4 BB, 8 CR, 17 DD, 10 SUB
-Ottoman Airforce: 10 Fighter Wings, 4 Bombing Wings, 5 Transport Wings.

Kingdom of Romania:

-Romanian Army: 21 divisions (18 inf, 3 cav)
-Romanian Navy: 1 CR, 4 DD
-Romanian Airforce: 2 Fighter Wings, 1 Bombing Wings.

Tsardom of Bulgaria:

-Bulgarian Army: 27 divisions (19 inf, 5 cav, 3 mil)
-Bulgarian Navy: 2 DD
-Bulgarian Airforce: 1 Fighter Wings, 1 Bombing Wings.

Spanish Civil War: April-June 1928

[

Overall:

War had broken out completely in Western Europe, and it would be felt strongly. Italy and France send their full force to break the rising People's Republic of Spain, and it was a match to behold. This one got more complex than the other wars, so I'll give you a breakdown part by part:

Domestic Terrorism: The People's Republic wasted no time to make contact with various lefistt and anarchist groups across France, openly sponsoring acts of sabotage that often led to more of a loss of life than actual harm to the French military. Indeed, Paris was stunned when on early April the Palace of Versailles was victim of an intense bombing attack that led to the historic monument being burned almost to the ground, a horrible loss for history. The news has galvanized the French into supporting the war in Spain (basically demanding Besteiro's head) and volunteering for the army, many experts recommending to the President that he enacts a mobilization of the reserves rather than just use the professional army.

War on the Mediterranean: Another front where Spain attempted to seize the initative, leaving some naval units for the Atlantic and the Canary Islands while deploying the bulk of their fleet to the Mediterranean as they tried to mine whenever possible and engage in submarine war against French and Italian convoys (to the protest of several neutral nations). Alas, a large part of the combined French and Italian fleet had been deployed to operations in the Atlantic, leading to the large Battle of Ibiza in the Balearic Islands. Despited a spirited fight, the Spanish navy was utterly crushed, and the French commanders occupied the islands as a staging point afterwards.

Morocco and the Sahara: Fresh from victory, the French used their fleet to cross the strait of Gibraltar and capture all Spanish bases on Moroccan ground. The Spanish, in the meantime, had staged a successful landing against the Alfonsist forces of Africa, forcing them to fall back. Alas, French units landed as well in Spanish Morocco, encircling the enemy force and turning the tables on the offensive.

Mainland Spain: With the main Spanish forces crushing most of the Alfonsist revolts and moving onto the siege of Seville, large forces were deployed towards Galicia and particularly the Carlist forces bordering France. Alas, the Spanish Army underestimated the size of the French and Italian forces that were marching onto support King Jaime, with as little as 16 Spanish divisions facing off against more than 50 enemy divisions. With their offensives soon broken by February, all the way until March the pro-Monarchy forces advanced swiftly and captured several revolutionary units, flooding Northern Spain and breaking the Spanish line of defence.

With Portugal having crushed its own rebels and sponsoring Alfonsist militias in Southern Spain, it is expected they could enter the conflict too. General Secretary Besteiro still has a large force and many opportunities for defence, but with the loss of most of his fleet and the collapse of his defences in Northern Spain the situation is critical.

War Info:

People's Republic of Spain:
-Spanish Army: 51 divisions (29 inf, 7 cav, 15 mil)
-Spanish Navy: 1 BB, 3 CR, 8 DD, 2 SUB
-Spanish Airforce: 5 Fighter Wings, 1 Bombing Wings, 2 Transport Wings.

French Republic:
-French Army: 65 divisions (50 inf, 10 cav, 5 mil)
-French Navy: 11 BB, 23 CR, 75 DD, 40 SUB
-French Airforce: 32 Fighter Wings, 12 Bombing Wings, 42 Transport Wings.

Kingdom of Italy:
-Italian Army: 72 divisions (53 inf, 12 cav, 7 mil)
-Italian Navy: 12 BB, 16 CR, 33 DD, 14 SUB
-Italian Airforce: 14 Fighter Wings, 4 Bombing Wings, 5 Transport Wings.

Carlist Spain:
-Carlist Army: 26 divisions (9 inf, 16 mil)
-Carlist Navy: None.
-Carlist Airforce: 2 Fighter Wing, 2 Bombing Wing.

Alfonsist Spain:
-Alfonsist Army: 5 divisions (2 inf, 3 mil)
-Alfonsist Navy: None.
-Alfonsist Air Force: None.

"This is BBC Radio News, reporting this evening once again on the ongoing Balkan crisis.

With war raging across the Balkans and the Bulgarian Army making a stand, the crisis has turned far more serious. A joint declaration was signed today in Athens by the Kingdom of Greece and the Kingdom of Serbia, which denounces the Ottoman Empire and the Kingdom of Romania as aggressors in the so called "Second Balkan War". Inviting the Bulgarian Tsar for the signature of a temporary defence alliance, Greece and Serbia are now at war with Romania and the Ottomans. The Magyar Republic has partially mobilized its military as well, and warns that unless Istanbul and Bucharest agree to an immediate truce and go to the negotiating table, Budapest will join the Athens Pact.

A reply was soon to come, as Bosnia and Albania both have declared war on the Athens Pact and expressed their interest in crushing once and for all the Bulgarian threat to peace. Croatia, Montenegro and the other nations have refrained from an official stance, but are taking consultations. As we speak, foreign support arrives in Bulgaria, and Athens Pact troops are entering allied territory to support the defence of..."

We are most disappointed at Greek declaration of war. We have made it clear over and over again we desire nothing but peace and reconciliation with Greece. Let's the history record it was their decision to initiate hostilities, not ours. (Also, they had no problem with partitioning Bulgaria in cooperation with us in 1902. And now they are playing saints, even though they gave some hints about sharing this time too. Oh well. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)

Germany is most saddened about the most disingenuous actions of the Kingdoms of Serbia and Greece. When Germany approached both those nations in our quest for stability and peace, never did we see any desire for peace from Athens or Belgrade. Far from that, what we received were dubious claims and allegations, even a desire from the Serbian government to illegitimately increase their territory into Montenegro, Bosnia, and wishes from the Greece government to annex all of Albania. It is unclear to us who in this conflict is the aggressor. Is it the nation that defends herself against blatant and bloody threats to domestic security and stability, that is in her very capital subject to government-sponsored terrorism, or are it the nations that use a conflict they have no business in as a proxy to invade their peaceful neighbours, in the certainty that they as their stronger, more powerful neighbours will prevail.

It is that world order of old that is most alien to the German government. We most utterly detest any such disingenuous and vile attempts such as are perpetuated by the Greece and Serbian governments in the present day. Germany's uttermost wish is for peace and stability, and that can never be achieved when such vile powers are allowed to roam free. In light of these recent developments, it is with a heavy heart that the German government decrees that a state of war exists between the German Empire and the Kingdoms of Greece and Serbia. The reason for this are twofold - first, it is in aid of our ally, the Ottoman Empire, which has been spitefully attacked by these two nations. Secondly, it is for the reason outlined above, in aid and defense of the territorial integrity of the nations of Bosnia, Montenegro and Albania, which, to the best of the knowledge of the German government, is utterly and severely threatened by this pact of aggression between Serbia and Greece.

The German government will suspend all diplomatic ties between herself and the Kingdoms of Serbia and Greece, effective immediately. We will furthermore end all relations in trade and commerce between Germany and those nations, and we will expel any citizens of those nations from Germans soil within two fortnights. We will ask our friends within the GAR, the Kingdom of Poland and the Baltic duchies, to do the same actions.

We furthermore want to affirm that the German Empire is fully committed to the territorial integrity of the nations of Montenegro, Bosnia and Albania. It is in protection of those nations from aggressive cravings within the governments of Serbia and Greece that we have entered a state of war against those two nations.

His Sacred and Imperial Majesty is proud to have such a strong and honourable allies as the German Empire. If there were any doubts before, we can now see the German-Ottoman friendship is unbreakable.

The Ottoman Empire attempted, in vain, to maintain peace with Greece. To no avail. It is clear to us that Greece does not case at all about Bulgaria, as it was evident in 1902, but wants to use this as a pretext to annex Albania and threathen the Anatolian soil. Exactly the same low motivations were on the part of Serbia, which has sickening ambitions to threat our friends in Bosnia. Albania and Bosnia put their trust in the Constantinopole and we shall never, ever let them down.

The Ottoman Empire is hereby seizing all Bulgarian, Greek and Serbian assets. All citizens of these states currently on the Ottoman territory shall be put in the protective custody until an eventual exchange of prisoners can be arranged.

The Ottoman Empire formally request that Crimea will honor treaty obligation and join the war (/i]can use some Czech legionists XD[/i]). We will not request our allies in the Kingdom of Hejaz to join the war, given logistical issues (I'm not drying Hejaz out of needed forces)

Tsar Nicholas before the Speech of Romania

Crier: LISTEN, MEMBERS OF THE SENATE. LISTEN, MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE OF DEPUTIES. LISTEN, CITIZENS OF ROMANIA. I PRESENT YOUR TSAR!
"Greetings, countrymen! Today you have doubtless heard of the declaration of war upon ourselves by the nations of Serbia and Greece. These nations seek to destroy our great country and our great region with war. We will not allow this. We must not allow this. We cannot allow this, for the sake of ourselves and our children.

"Today, our enemies stand united against us. An alliance of evildoers and warmongerers - the capitals of Belgrade, Athens, and Sofia - stand before us. We have not fallen to the Bulgarians, nor will we. We will not fall to the Serbians. We will not fall to the Greeks. To do so, your country has asked for your fellow countrymen.

"As we remember our dead, I ask that when you wonder who is at fault, you remember it is not me. It is not you. It is not the dead. It is our enemies. We must stand united against them, or surely we will all fall separately. The belligerence and bullying of a few nations in the Balkans will not be tolerated any longer. When we hold fast, they will send armies. Their armies will crash on ours like waves on rocks. They will shatter and break.

"Stand not against each other but with each other. We may yet see many more die, but this is not the end. If the enemy attacks, we will fight them in the farms and in the countryside. If they take the countryside, we will fight them from the streets. If they take our streets, we will fight from our homes. If they take your home and my home, we will fight from the rooftops. If they take the rooftops, we will fight from the sidewalks. We will always find a new place to fight from. Romanians will fight as long as we live. We will never surrender!"

The Great Khanate of Crimea and Grand Principality of Sevastopol declares war upon the Kingdom of Bulgaria, in accordance with its alliance and allegiance to the Sublime Porte.

Prince Yusupov stresses that he will remain neutral in any war against Greece and Serbia, and strongly objects to any projected aggression against the Magyar State or, in particular, Czechia, a country he regards as a close cultural and political friend.

"This is BBC Radio News, with reports from our correspondents in Berlin, Athens, Budapest and Oslo, among others.

The declaration of war from Germany to the Athens Pact with claims to Greece and Serbia planning their expansion on the Balkans has led to a harsh response from Athens, charging Germany and the Ottoman Empire from trying to fully annex and divide Bulgaria, along with alleged offers from Chancellor Marx to give Bulgarian territory to Greece and "allow" Serbia to expand. Pro-German states have supported Marx in his denunciation of the Athens Pact, while many neutral nations have denounced Berlin for "giving a free reign to Ottoman and Romanian aggression in the Balkans".

Despite the SPD threatening to pull out of the Government in response to the war declaration, it seems a large degree of behind the scenes intrigue has taken place in the Reichstag, which approved the declaration of war by a small margin with several government deputies voting against. Unconfirmed reports place the merit to the Government's victory to Deputy Franz von Papen forcing Zentrum's almost unanimous approval, while compensating for SPD votes with the votes of the German right. Most German allies and vassals have followed suit in denouncing Athens.

Two of the harsher responses against Berlin have taken place in Budapest and Oslo. The Magyar Republic has expressed its belief that the deployment of German troops in the Balkans would be intolerable for peace in the region and would warrant their intervention. The pro-British Norwegian government and the Nobel Committee have also attacked Chancellor Marx over the claims of the Athens Pact, many calling on him to forfeit his recent Nobel Peace Prize on account of his sudden declaration of war against Greece, Bulgaria and Serbia.

In other news, the Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, has announced..."

1. We consider allegations against Germany as baseless. Germany did not join in declaration of war against Bulgaria, but had to honor her diplomatic and military obligations when Greece and Serbia declared war on her allies. International relations are based on honoring one's commitments. We would do exactly the same thing if Germany were attacked. Chancellor Marx tried his best to prevent current crisis from escalating, so his reputation of a man of peace stands. Greece and Serbia are agressors here and their agression will not be tolerated.

2. The Ottoman Empire had no hostility toward Hungary. As a show of our good will, we'll restore 40% of previous oil sales to the Magyar Republic.

London expresses extreme concern about the German Empire's actions in the Balkans, especially given that the world had come speedily to expect better of Chancellor Marx.

Should the German Empire accept a wider front of battle encompassing the Magyar State, the British Empire will interpret this as a directly hostile act, deserving an exactly proportionate retaliation.

Furthermore, the British Cabinet formally requests that Berlin withdraw its forces from the Balkan front and instead send, as befits the Chancellor's professed liberal internationalism, diplomats to the negotiation table. It is ugly to behold the regime that laid down the law to the Catholic Powers on Spain, and then easily allowed itself to receive the honours of the Nobel Committee, trespassing so grotesquely against its own preaching.

If the German Empire insists on resorting to force and not reason, Britain cannot rule out any responding course of action.

Britain expresses herself more than willing to assist in a mediating capacity.

Signed for the British Cabinet, May 12th 1928, Leo Amery, Foreign Secretary

The Holy Kingdom of Italy joins the in the commendations of the German aggression in the Balkans. It is the opinion of the Emperor and the Holy Father that the German policy towards the Hungarian state are deplorable and must be rethought immediately.

If the German government continues to pursue military objectives in the Balkans, the Holy Kingdom of Italy will have no choice but to echo the actions of the United Kingdom and interpret these actions as inherently hostile.

Romania questions what exactly Germany has done towards the Magyar Republic. Germany is merely defending its allies when the Athens Pact, seeing "weakness" from our alliance, has declared an opportunistic war against us. Surely the nations of Europe recognize that Germany has not declared war on Bulgaria nor expressed any hostility to the Magyar Republic.

The German Empire does not anticipate any hostilities against the Magray Republic.

While we share the British concerns about escalation, we must correct an obvious error. The German Empire joined the hostilities after Greece and Serbia broke the peace by declaring war on our Ottoman and Romanian allies. Diplomatic commitments must be honored, since we would expect our friends to act the same way, if the war was declared on us.

The German Empire, in accordance with the Ottoman Empire, wants to show good will and proposed the immediate ceasefire between our alliance and Greece and Serbia, so our relations can return to states quo antebellum without futher complication.

As of the Italian statement, given their own share in provoking the Iberian crisis, we shall have no futher comment.

The Ottoman Empire wishes to confirm the joint initiative with Germany to put an end to hoslilities with Greece and Serbia without any futher political consequences. It was the Ottoman policy for long time to maintain a respectful peace with Greece and we remain committed to this, despite all adversities.

We would respectfully ask the Italian Empire to consider to cease making futher needlessly provocative statements. If the European crisis escalates, it won't be the Ottoman Empire and our allies to take this step.

Bulgaria provoked the crisis and the Ottoman Empire had every right to defend their straits against such terrorist actions. It is in interest of the entire Europe that these facilities will remain open.

We might have asked about the French involvement in Spain, but we think there's no constructive point in bringing both Spain and Bulgaria, when we are discussing Hungary,

If I read correctly, both Italy, the United Kingdom and Hungary are expressing concerns about the recent actions of Germany and the Ottoman Empire in the Balkans, and that includes Bulgaria.

Bulgaria never attacked the Ottoman Empire, France is willing to mediate if necessary in order to end the conflicts, the conflicts in all the Balkans.

But if the Ottoman Empire and Germany truly wanted peace,
May I ask why they're not proposing a ceasefire with Bulgaria as well?

Bulgaria provoked the crisis and the Ottoman Empire had every right to defend their straits against such terrorist actions. It is in interest of the entire Europe that these facilities will remain open.

And Spain haven't directly attacked France either. Bulgaria might not have "directly" attacked the Ottoman Empire, but their failed secret operations within the straits are more than enough for any power to react.

If I recall correctly, you did try to mediate between Italy and Spain. Why not letting mediation between Bulgaria and the Ottoman Empire? Smiley
