It's fun to try different scenarios. I pull it out every few months when I can't stand to write any more late at night.
As the Germans, I just tried a different gambit which involved the following:
1. Bring Spain to alliance before 9/1/1939.
2. Position submarines and all new surface vessels and transports in Spanish ports.
3. Position about 14 divisions outside of Gibraltar and several wolf-packs off coast of Alexandria.
4. As soon as war is declared, take Poland (as usual), but also hit Gibraltar and British surface fleet at Alexandria.
5. Keep after British surface fleet.
6. With Gibraltar taken, race into southern France. Start moving German units from Poland back to Western Front for Phoney War.
7. French AI will weaken Maginot Line forces to move to southern France.
8. Hit Belgium and then Northern France leaving Luxembourg and Holland alone.
9. British fleet is more or less weakened now. Strike across channel and take England. :)
