42-Longest Days

Printemps 2018 - ARMA III

Altis island is located about 50 km away from the strait of Dardanelles, in the Aegean Sea. This island represents an important logistic point, because of the potential control Black Sea naval traffic.
In 1915, a main attack conducted by the British Army, took the control of the island and Pyrgos port was used as main harbor by the Royal Navy. Following the ending of WWI, Altis remained under the protection of the British Empire during the WWII and the Cold War.

The European clashes
On the 26th of June 1988, a group of armed protesters occupied a few government buildings in Warsaw and violent clashes took place in the following days in all main cities of the Eastern Poland. Few weeks later, three soviet divisions entered Poland, escorting a humanitarian convoy and actively supported the rebel fight. In the following months, the insurgent cities declared the independency and they formed the new Independent State of the Eastern Poland. The clashes continued and spread through all Poland in a civil war.

In the first months of 1989, NATO members met to discuss a possible intervention plan, but none of the solution proposed was accepted by the majority of the members. United Kingdom, Holland and Norway firmly refused to intervene with the politics of the Eastern Block. A humanitarian operation on Polish soil was activated on April 1989.
In May 1990, diplomatic relations between UK and USA reached an all-time low: after the critics against UK’s decision to not interfere in the Polish civil war, the British Prime Minister issued the expulsion of all the American diplomats. Few months later, United Kingdom interrupted its contribution to the humanitarian mission, undermining the success of the NATO operations. This decision was hardly criticized also by the French Foreign Affair Minister, who called this action “a foolish act”. The idea of a Polish capitulation, worried all European leaders, as they feared an armed conflict in the heart of Europe.

The USA offensive

Because of the Poland escalation, in February 1991 USA government decided to strengthen American presence in the Mediterranean Sea. They asked London to provide the free access to American Navy and Army on Altis territory. After the hard rejection from the UK, none of the further negotiations were successful. The “Special relationship” is broken.
As a conflict with the Soviet Union seemed inevitable, the American Army prepared an invasion of Altis and requested the support from European forces already stationed in the area. France and Italy answered the call, sending their troops to take control of the island. However, the Soviet Union did not sit back and sent its troops with the unusual task to support the British forces in the defense of Altis.
