Strategies for Axis and Allies

The Axis

Germany

Germany has an easy objective: Get Russia.

An attack on UK can only succeed if the UK player is very stupid and major mistakes.

Aims

Opening

Important Territories

Karelia and Caucasus, which is a National Objective.

France is important too as it gives UK and US extra income when you loose it.

Egypt is the key to gain Africa.


Italy

They should help Germany to defend France, to get Africa and on the southern eastern front.

Its limited resources usually only allow to support two of those three objectives at most.

Italy is hard to reach for the allies.

Aims

Opening

Important Territories

Egypt and everything needed for the National Objectives to get a higher income.


Japan

Since they start before the USA, they must make sure to gain momentum on the mainland and the big ocean.

Aims

Opening

Important Territories

India is a national objective. Australia and Hawaii are also options but India has a better production and is good to build a factory.


The Allies

Russia

It is the starting power and the crucial front in Axis and the Allies. You need to find a good balance between aggressiveness and defense.

Aims

Opening

Important Territories

Karelia and Caucasus are German national objectives. Karelia is difficult to hold, so you might give it up turn 1.

Make sure not to loose Caucaus as it is difficult to take back.


United Kingdom

Avoid getting crushed on all fronts. Try to hold Egypt. Try to hold India as long as you can.

Your allies will have to help you and the UK is the nation that needs to take pressure from Russia.

Aims

Opening

Important Territories

Egypt is important as you don't want to lose Africa.

India should delay Japan as long as possible.

France should be your main playground.

Try to fulfill your national objective: hold Gibraltar, Egypt, South Africa, Australia and Canada.


United States

If you choose to go Pacific, you will most likely need air units, carriers and subs to fight the Japanese.

If you go Atlantic, you get just as much fleet as you absolutely need to protect the transports.

Aims

Opening

Important Territories

Solomon Islands and France because they are national objectives.

The Carolines are in range of everything that's important.
