The Battleship is the key as it is able to take two hits. In the mean time on turn one you need to move the Italian fleet into the strait of Gibartar. You also have to take and hold the UK Convoys, while destroying the US fleet. You must also elimate all of the UK ships in the Atlantic except for perhaps the small Canadain fleet. On turn one you also need to take East Poland and one Russian area below that one. From there on out, pull back the German forces. But keep 1 Infantry on the spots. Russia would be stupid to attack Germany as Germany could land all of its intended units which would go to Britain in Leingrad and hence have a huge army that can be resupplied fast and within very close range of Moscow. A lot of times the Russia player moves his forces into the Eastern Front and keeps the rear open.
Anyhow you need about 5 to 7 transports in total to invade along with destroys for the bombardment.
Thus turn 2 purchases: You should have 42 IPCs
3 Transports (Thus giving you a total of 6 Transports in Baltic Sea and with the Italy navy moving up it will soon be 7)
Note you should only buy Artillery and Infantry for the invasion.
UK cannot fight off two combined German Battleships. With 2 free hits the UK would simply be wasting resources.
Since you have been moving your units back, you should have plenty of artillery and infantry for a first round attack on Britain on the 3rd turn. It is important that your Subs in the Atlantic are still alive. They are needed to prevent American warships from being able to retake Britain.
Turn 3: You will most likely have 40 IPCs
Buy the following:
You should have enough infantry sitting around to use for invasions. The key to the strategy is to not worry about Russia and let them take stuff here and there. Remember that you only have to have control of your capital and 1 other capital for one complete turn. When attacking Britain you need your airforce. If the land units are destroyed have your airforce retreat so that I may attack next turn.
If the UK happens to have no fighters because it tryed to take out your fleet SBR can be good.
If you gamble by attempting to take Britain and you fail you have nothing to fall back on when Russia invades.
