As spring drags on, French ships in the North Sea attempt to finish off the Russian fleet in the Skagerrak.  The Russians, however, break out of their encirclement, retaking Norway with help from their forces in Finland and St. Petersburg.  British ships are driven from Oslo and the western Fjords.  Elsewhere, British and Russian forces dig in, attempting to fortify their positions heading into the summer.

In Germany, the British fleet at Kiel moves northwest into the Helgoland Bight.  Seeing this, German troops rush west, but are turned back by a reinforcing British army moving east from Holland with support from the Ruhr valley.  To the south, France makes a series of probing attacks against Austrian-held Munich.

In the Mediterranean, the stalemate continues as Austro-Italian forces frustrate French offensive plans for another season.

Overview

I think it’s time that we begin to discuss a negotiated peace.

Retreats!

The British fleet in Norway may retreat to North or Norwegian Seas.
