Please send comments and corrections via to Wargame
- [71.4] (Clarification) The actions of the Soviet Union affect the Political
Point Total just as if the Soviet Union were the Allied Player. Note that
the Winter War does not affect the Political Point Total, but a subsequent
Soviet attack on a neutral Finland does.

- [72.1] (Clarification) By an Axis attack on Finland in its armed neutral
status, the Political Point Change is a negative eight points - 3 for Finland
and 5 for the Soviet Union - because such an attack causes Total War with
the Soviet Union.

to the Axis. ... by the Soviets, control falls to the Axis.
- [73.11] (Addition) Should either the Soviets or the Axis invade Turkey prior
to war between the Soviets and the Axis, Turkey is to be partitioned along
a line from J3002 to J3015. This line is the farthest that a German unit may
be following partition. Turkey Surrenders when there are no Turkish units
on one side (either side) of this line AND Ankara is Enemy Occupied. There
is no Political Point Cost for the second Player's invading Turkey. Partition
occurs on the Game-Turn following Turkish Surrender. Any units on the wrong
side of the Partition Line two turns after partitioning are eliminated.

Axis against the Baltic States.
