Desperate to break out of the Franco-British encirclement in the Skaggerak, Russia coordinates a massive attack on Norway. Armies in St. Petersburg and Finland launch supporting offensives along the border, as the Skaggerak force lands near Oslo and attempts to fight its way inland. Russian troops are met by an overwhelming force of British and French marines, conducting their own attack from Sweden and the waters around western Scandinavia. For over three months, close to two million marines and their supporting ships vie for control over Norway. Ultimately, allied forces prevail, as British marines break through, and turn the Russian right flank near Halden, forcing a retreat back into the Skaggerak strait.
In Germany both sides conduct late summer offensives. British ships and marines attempt to seize the Baltic Sea port of Rostock, but run into determined Austro-Germanic defenses. To the south, Austrian infantry divisions attack towards Kiel. In their absence, a French army moves east across the frontier towards Munich with support from British troops in the Ruhr. They are met and pushed back by Austrian reinforcements railing in from Prague. Ultimately, the stalemate continues across Germany.
In the Mediterranean, the stalemate drags on into winter. To the east, Russian forces move up to reinforce the front lines.
British and French forces score a victory in the north, seizing Denmark and maintaining the encirclement of the Russian fleet in the Skaggerak. Otherwise, there is little change, as the European stalemate drags on into another winter.
Britain: Gain one Russia: Disband one
