The Great Game: Nuclear History

This history had a lot of nukes.

Well, let’s see. There was China’s initial blitz against Belgian Europe, back in 1948, with a whole bunch of nukes:


name = "17:00 February 20, 1948 : Naples has been destroyed by a nuclear bomb."
name = "0:00 March 3, 1948 : Genoa has been destroyed by a nuclear bomb."
name = "23:00 March 5, 1948 : Suez has been destroyed by a nuclear bomb."
name = "6:00 March 12, 1948 : Toulouse has been destroyed by a nuclear bomb."
name = "11:00 April 5, 1948 : Milan has been destroyed by a nuclear bomb."
name = "21:00 June 25, 1948 : Florence has been destroyed by a nuclear bomb."
name = "11:00 September 11, 1948 : Bursa has been destroyed by a nuclear bomb."
name = "10:00 December 1, 1948 : Istanbul has been destroyed by a nuclear bomb."

The Burgundians retaliated against targets in Iberia and the Italian landings, although those bombs seem to have disappeared from the log; it was a good five or six nukes, though. London was also hit at some point. The next time China uses nukes is against my attempted invasion from Siberia:


name = "20:00 April 22, 1949 : Vanavara has been destroyed by a nuclear bomb."
name = "20:00 May 12, 1949 : Vanavara has been destroyed by a nuclear bomb."
name = "15:00 August 2, 1949 : Ust-Kut has been destroyed by a nuclear bomb."

smashing it pretty thoroughly, it must be admitted. Then, I at one point destroyed the Burgundian nuclear industry, and the Burgundians retaliated against the Poles:


name = "10:00 May 14, 1949 : Strasbourg has been destroyed by a nuclear bomb."
name = "11:00 May 26, 1949 : Lublin has been destroyed by a nuclear bomb."
name = "6:00 May 28, 1949 : Strasbourg has been destroyed by a nuclear bomb."

I’m not quite sure why I bombed it twice, actually. I only remember giving the order once. I then destroyed Brussels for the dissent effects:

name = "3:00 July 18, 1949 : Brussels has been destroyed by a nuclear bomb."

Now comes the Spanish invasion of Norway, and a desperate attempt to stop them getting to my nuclear reactor, which I had placed right next to Mo-i-Rana, which happened to be the first place they landed. Alas, the nuke arrived two hours too late.

name = "18:00 September 1, 1949 : Mo i Rana has been destroyed by a nuclear bomb."
name = "20:00 November 4, 1949 : Röros has been destroyed by a nuclear bomb."
name = "9:00 November 7, 1949 : Madrid has been destroyed by a nuclear bomb."

Then Röros goes because it was strongly held by the Ynglinga Hird against the push out of Trondhjem, and I retaliate against the ruins of Madrid. Finally the fighting in Central Europe is pretty nuclear:

name = "9:00 January 12, 1950 : Berlin has been destroyed by a nuclear bomb."
name = "19:00 April 1, 1950 : Nuremberg has been destroyed by a nuclear bomb."
name = "6:00 April 5, 1950 : Frankfurt-am-Main has been destroyed by a nuclear bomb."

I’m honestly not sure who bombed Berlin and Frankfurt, it may have been the British, even. (In fact I wasn’t aware of this lot until just now; there’s some weirdness with my client so I don’t get notified of nukes.) Nuremberg was Chinese, and broke my defensive line in Germany, letting Chinese tanks through into what was left of my industries. That’s what induced me to finally accept the Comintern terms.

So that’s 21 bombs in the history log, plus quite a few that have apparently slipped through the cracks; I think Madrid has been bombed at least twice more, for example. Say 30 all told. And both China and Norway now have ICBMs and a working nuclear reactor. (It’s amazing how fast you can build them when you don’t have enough oil for the tanks you’ve already got, so you don’t need any more.)
