At the beginning of the end, the iron curtain advances Westward and retakes Belorussia and the Balkans.

On the other side of the continent, a British transport disembarks an infantry and tank regiment in Western Europe and successfully liberates Paris; thus bringing the Victory City count to eight in the Allies favour. Although this results in a minor victory, conditions aren't checked until the end of the Americans turn.

The United States then moves its transports that have spent the previous turns crossing the Pacific. One ship lands in the East Indies whilst the other lands on Borneo. Both islands are captured which deprives Japan of eight IPC's.
Two American tanks then move out of Sinkiang to try and bring Shanghai back under Allied control. Both tanks roll badly however, and one Japanese tank holds the territory.
