there's a lot to like about this, but also some things that really bother me. Germany is a joke, they're far too easy to win with, even on deity. It's also kind of strange that operation Seeloewe is an option when it was never launched during the war.

@LavaGamezZ maybe try actually knowing what you're talking about next time before demeaning an entire country's war efforts, thanks

@LavaGamezZ Boi you fucking wot? The US was almost the entire reason Nazi Germany was stopped. If it weren't for them and the Soviet Union there would be no jews in europe, as well as many countries not existing. Next time you post something about WWII on a page about WWII you should at least go get an education.
The internet is a wonderful place to learn before making stupid comments and getting called out, You should use it for something other than video games and social media.
