In January, 1949, something happens! The Allies try for OVERLORD again and the Soviets are clawing back territory in the East. Perhaps it is time for Spain to make its move and to make this conflict turn decisively in the favour of the good guys! Read more…

As a small power it isn’t good for me to spread the tech research too thin, but what’s done is done, so let’s get on with it! Read more…

New Years celebrations in 1940  are muted. Fireworks, deemed entirely inappropriate, are replaced instead with the waving of small flags and the singing of patriotic songs expressing solidarity with the workers of the world. Read more…
