It seems that the French will to resist has not died out just yet, and there are still forces in the area that can mount a counterattack. Bursting into our infantry positions, enemy tanks, including several of the Char B1 Heavy tank do much damage while we attempt to gain a hold on the situation.
News that the city of Rouen has fallen to our advancing forces however has reached the remaining French troops.
Afraid that they would soon be outflanked from the west, many of the enemy forces have seized their counteroffensives, and have retreated South. This has allowed us to stabilize the front in the Center and East.
Further capitulating on our lightning strikes, offensives all along the front are now in full swing. Not only in the West, where we are now almost within a days walk from Le Havre, but also in the Center have we resumed our offensives.
It seems that the French have no more answers for our overwhelming assault. Everywhere the French are in full retreat, and nothing seems to be able to stop us any longer. Capturing a local command post, we find the French to have abandoned the position several hours ago already, giving us further indication no will to fight is left.
Token resistance inside the city of Le Havre cannot stop our forces from seizing control of the city, and immediately swinging East with the bulk of our troops to drive upon Paris. A small garrison will be left to ensure the English won't land forces in our rear while we drive on the French capital.
Having laid mines while retreating, these obstacles, together with a few troops unwilling to give up the fight, are the only remaining things left in our path towards Paris. The enemy has even left much of their still usable equipment behind in order to escape faster from our approaching troops. This has allowed us to equip several troops with this captured materiel, and it will be put to excellent use in our future campaigns.
Within the next couple of days, most of the fighting has seized. Our troops continue to march and drive towards the city of Paris, which with every passing hour seems more and more within our reach. As we approach the city, we receive news from the Official French government. They have declared the Paris an open city, to prevent the city and its population from falling victim to the sufferings of war.
As we march into Paris, we have received word that the French government has requested a seize fire from all forces along whatever front they were still able to muster. With any further attacks being put on hold, we can call this battle an outstanding victory. France: our decade old enemy that brought Germany to its knees after defeat in the first world war has been defeated.
With France on its knees, we shifted our focus to Great Britain, a battle in the air to gain control over the skies of this great island has however cost us dearly. Unable to wrestle control of the air away from the English Royal Airforce we must find different means to take the fight to them.
With Greece pledging it's allegiance to the British cause, and an Allied coup in the Yugoslavian government shifting their allegiance to that of our enemies, we have a reason to head East and start dealing with this new threat. Our next objective will be the Yugoslavian capital of Belgrade!
