Africa is one of the six accessible continents in the game. It is a large area with few independent countries to start with, generally poor infrastructure and limited resources, and forbidding terrain in several areas.

General Edit

Africa offers a unique challenge to the major nations of the world. It begins primarily split between France and the United Kingdom while other colonial powers hold small portions. The value in resources is minimal and thus it warrants less protection than other more wealthy portions of these empires might require. This can make the continent a tempting target for aggressive nations, as a few corps are usually sufficient to capture large swathes of land on the continent. Unfortunately, the going is often slow as terrain is every bit as hampering as are enemy troops and a lack of modern roads and the life make traversing the continent a challenge. Additionally, resources gained by such an expedition will usually limit the value of it, but Africa does have several strategic advantages. It offers access to the Mediterranean Sea and the Middle East while European conquerers will gain access to the Indian and South Atlantic Oceans in ways they could not otherwise get to.

In 1936, Africa is home to only three independent countries: South Africa, Ethiopia, and Liberia. Ethiopia is usually quickly added to Italy's empire and Liberia is a tiny puppet of the United States, leaving South Africa as the sole nation of consequence on the continent. As a member of the Allies, it is often the South Africans that become the continent's main defender in the case of Axis forces pushing south of the northern coastal areas.

Countries Edit

While only three countries are independent in the main scenarios prior to World War II, several colonies have national identities and can be liberated by their colonial masters or other conquering powers. For many invaders this can be an effective way of securing their influence on the continent without tying down too many of their own forces to hold it.
