The hard fought and highly costly U-boat submarine war in the Atlantic began within hours of Germany's invasion of Poland on 1 September 1939 and continued right up to the final German surrender to the Allies in May 1945. This titanic, savage struggle had all the niceties and nuances of a bitter, no holds barred, bare knuckle, bar room brawl with little quarter given and few prisoners taken by either side. To give you an idea of the fervent intensity of the fighting, 40,000 Germans served in U-boats in WWII. 30,000 never returned. In spite of this, U-Boats were without a doubt the most cost effective weapon in Germany's naval arsenal in their battle against the Allies during the war. Their continued use nearly starved Great Britain into surrender during the first few years of the war. Even England's Prime Minister Winston Churchill later confessed "The only thing that truly scared me during the entire war were the U-boat attacks upon our supply convoys."

Hearts of Iron IV is the latest iteration of Paradox Interactive’s successful World War 2 grand strategy title. However, I have to confess that the last version was, for me, a failure as I just couldn’t get into it at all. Therefore, it was with some trepidation that I accepted an invitation from Paradox to a two day multi-player event being held just outside of London – that’s a lot of time to commit to something you really may not like from the off. This was not helped by having very little time to get to know the game with the beta that was kindly provided and having to get going with game from the start of the event. So how did it work out; read on …

Building upon their previous expansions that significantly changed the entire dynamic of colonialization in EUIV through their Colonial Nation mechanic, Paradox has now given the native counterparts something of a unique experience as well.
