The United Kingdom:
The far-flung British Empire, once spanning six continents, declined rapidly in the years following World War Two. However, British influence remained powerful in all areas of the world, incorporating Australia, India, South Africa, and Canada into a network of allied powers.
In East & West, Britain must maintain control of the European seaways until help arrives from the United States. British assistance is vital to preventing the collapse of Western Europe early in the game.
The photograph shown here was taken at the Yalta conference in 1945. Despite the friendly smiles, Iosef Stalin (center) and Winston Churchill (right) already harbored a deep mistrust of each other. Soviet spies had been operating inside Allied military networks since the early 1940's at Stalin's command.
