Just a Note:
My Tracker says I can basically have a lot more than I have created (Basically my nation is the size of RL Earth). For Example it takes 9,000 Personal to staff a Carrier Battlegroup and according to my tracker, if I were to say I have 300 Aircraft Carrier Battlegroups, which is 3,600,000 personal, that is only a small fraction of the 55,737,000 total personal I am suppose to have in my military. (I'm a really old nation. I started basically when the site started.) So I choose to keep stuff small because it is easier to manage and I don't want to come off as a 'noob'. Hope that explains some things!


History:

Discovery of The Region:
In the Early 1900s Settlers from neighboring lands successfully crossed the Northern Mountains after 150 years of past attempts. From there they moved Southwest where the oldest city in The Present UFF was founded, Twin Rivers. Small Exploration parties were sent down these vastly long rivers. Meanwhile in the North, Fort Wellington was established by the Newfoundland Trading Company, which provided supplies, food, guides, and conscripted soldiers to take new settlers over the mountains. The Exploration Parties soon returned to Twin Rivers with vast information of the new region, including that both rivers led to ideal entrances to the Eastern Ocean, which had been unheard of before. The Race was one for new settlers to claim whatever they could of this new land.


The Trade Race:
By the 1920s, Trade Towns such as Riverside, Meadowood, and Hallsburg, which was on the coast of Lake Wellington, were springing up overnight to offer another stepping step to incoming settlers to take advantage of the new land. With more cities came more trading companies, but the biggest still remained to be The Newfoundland Trading Company. Within 5 years Cities such as Tacoma City and Georgia City in the North, and Fort Vanguard in the West near the Eastern Mountains, were created. No longer called the new lands, settlers refferred to it as Greatland.


Port Folk and Mounting Tensions in Trade:
In the late 1920s a daring group of tradesman travelled down the then named The Western Waterway all the way to the Eastern Ocean and established a major trading post called Port Folk. The Company that established this bold initiative was The Canal Trading Company. Many thought that this endeavor would fail quickly due to the fact thatthis region of Greatland was sparse in fertile ground suitable for farming and herding. However by 1930 Port Folk had grown to one of the biggest cities in Greatland, with goods coming in from the region and overseas.

By 1932 The Newfoundland Trading Company had made agreements with other smaller trading companines in an effort to regain some market control with the new region settlement. The Canal Trading Company began its own relation with the newly formed Port Folk Import/Export Company to keep its control on the market. Soon minor incidents both on land and on the waterways began taking place. Small truck convoys started to be robbed and an occasional trade ship would be sunk with cargos robbed just prior. Soon that would change.


The PFS Forest River Skirmish:
On April 5th 1933, The Port Folk Import/Export Ship PFS Forest, a Large Class Goods and Transport Ship departed Hallsburg with the rest of its convoy of ship, Convoy 754, at 1630 local time bound for Port Folk. The convoy consisted of the PFS Forest, Fuel Barge PFS Roy, Passenger Ship PFS Emily Marie, and 2 Frigates PFS Hawk and PFS Foxhound. After traveling down river for an hour, the convoy spotted 4 ships flying The Newfoundland Trading Company flag, they were NFTS Convoy 56. This convoy consisted of the Frigate NFTS Foghorn, Light Battleship NFTS Vanguard, and Gunboats NFTS Sentry and NFTS Yuma. Unknown to Convoy 754 the NFTS Wolf, a submarine which was a newer piece of technology at the time, was lurking underwater waiting to strike 754.

At first there was a stalemate between the 2 with both sides waiting for the other to flinch. Then NFTS Convoy 56 began advancing on Convoy 754. 754 begin manuvering into attack postions with the Frigates up front and the Forest in the center were it began to uncover its hidden long guns and set up to fire them. NFTS Wolf targeted the PFS Forest and launched 2 torpedos. The Forest exploded and began rapidly sinking. All of the crew/passengers/and tradesmen on board were killed or drowned shortly after. Seconds after the Forest exploded NFTS Vanguard fired its long range guns and hit the PFS Roy, making it dead in the water.

Convoy 754's Frigates retaliated by launching rounds from its long guns with the PFS Hawk launching 2 torpedos toward NFTS Convoy 56. The rounds from the Frigates struck and destroyed the NFTS Gunboats, but not before the Gunboats were able to each launch a torpedo. With torpedos passing each other in the water, in the following seconds the PFS Hawk was struck, made dead in the water, and began listing to starboard. The PFS Foxhound took a torpedo to the bow and began sinking. One of the torpedos launched from Convoy 754 found its way to the NTFS Wolf, were its hull crushed on itself and promptly sank. The final torpedo from 754 struck and crippled the NFTS Foghorn.

With both Convoys crippled and some ships sinking, NFTS Convoy 56 with the damaged NFTS Foghorn and the unscathed NFTS Vanguard retreated quickly upriver past Convoy 754 bound to Twin Rivers the base port of operations for the NFT. The remaining ships in Convoy 754 began assisting the sinking ships and searched the waters for any survivors. A distress signal was sent to PFT Headquarters in Port Folk which quickly dispatched a 7 ship battlegroup, Strike Fleet 89 which was approximately 3 hours downriver from 754's position, to protect the crippled 754th and assist the rescue operations. This skirmish would spark the first major conflict that Greatland would see.


The Great Trade War (1st Civil War):

Start of the War/The First Battle of Hallsburg:
On April 9th 1933, The Port Folk Import/Export Company with The Canal Trading Company declared hostilities on The Newfoundland Trading Company and its subsidiaries. In essence, all the towns, trading posts, ports, forts, and cities that relied on the companies for protection and supplies were drawn into the conflict. With no government higher than a Mayor of a town or city, each Trading Company was a governing body.

In the opening hours of "the war" The PFT Headquarters deployed fleets up the Western Waterway to assist ground forces in the Jointly Governed City of Hallsburg with securing the city for the PFT as a top priority. Fleets were alway dispatched in The Eastern Ocean with soldiers in order to amphibiously assault the mouth of the Northern Waterway. From there troops would march north in order to capture the NFT city of Meadowood with the ultimately goal to move further north to capture the NFT northern stronghold of Fort Wellington, an important import city of supplies and people from the homeland across the mountains. Another brigade of soldiers from the same strike force would move west in order to capture the city of Twin Rivers, the Homebase of Operations for the NFT.

NFT Command in Twin Rivers dispatched fleets of ships down both rivers to reinforce Hallsburg and Meadowood and to intercept any naval forces. In a daring maneuver, an NFT strike force left Fort Vanguard and moved south to capture Windy City. This strike force would then move onto the Western Waterway, cross it, capture the City of Oasis, and finally leapfrog to Port Folk. In another risky maneuver, NFT forces moved half of their air force from the city of Riverside to Fort Vanguard in order to conduct bombing raids on Windy City to soften defenses and protect the ground forces moving to capture it.

Within hours the city of Hallsburg had erupted into a battleground with PFT and NFT forces battling to control city blocks, secure the city's various piers for their arriving fleets, and control the small number of airfields within the city. After 4 days, a battle line was formed that stretched north to south dividing the city into an Eastern and Western Section. The NFT controlled the Eastern Section of the city as well as all the piers on Lake Wellington and the entrance to the Lake from the Western Waterway, while the PFT controlled the Western Section of the city and the piers that accessed the Western Waterway. This battle line was unofficially dubbed The Railroad Line, since most of battle line followed the North to South Commuter Rail System that ran from Uptown to Downtown. Both sides dug in and waited for their fleets to arrive to make the next push.


The Second Battle of Hallsburg and Start The Lake Wellington Naval War:
On April 15th, NFTS Strike Convoy 3 which consisted of 15 Ships including 4 Heavy Battleships, arrived on the shores of Lake Wellington, making it the first naval force outside of the already in place small group of ships in the city for both sides, to arrive. Almost immediately upon their arrival the Strike Convoy's Battleships began bombarding PFT positions alongThe Railroad Line. With their foothold softened, NFT ground forces the following day began an offensive push. Strike Convoy 3 had also brought with them on one of their transport ships 25 aircraft, 15 Medium Bombers and 10 Fighter aircraft. These aircraft were offloaded to shore and transported to NFT controlled airfields in the city. Under the cover of both air support and naval bombardment, the ground forces began to move past The Railroad Line and start pushing the PFT ground forces back to the shores of the Western Waterway.

In desperation, a group of 5 ships from PFT Convoy 325 (3 Gunboats and 2 Light Battleships), left their port on the Western Waterway to attempt gaining access to Lake Wellington. On April 20th, Convoy 325 was at the enterance to Lake Wellington where to their surprise, the enterance was unguarded, or so they thought. Lurking beneath the surface were 2 NFTS Submarines. In a devasting manuver, NFTS Strike Convoy 3 deployed a Gunboat and a Frigate to make an initial attack on Convoy 325 and draw them further into the Lake. Convoy 325 began opening fire on the NFTS Vessels and gave chase, it would be their first and final mistake. The 2 NFTS Submarines launched 4 torpedos into Convoy 325, destroying 2 Gunboats and 1 of the Battleships. Before 325 could recover, a 2nd volley of torpedos destoryed the remaining Gunboat, and crippled the last battleship. Unable to move, the remaining battleship, PFS Young, surrendered to NFTS Strike Convoy 3. The first naval victory of the war went to the NFT.
