The battles that occurred were often fought in torrential rains and marked by heavy casualties on all sides. Designers Notes.
I find that this design models the battles taking place at the end of WWII very well. I hope all who play Forgotten Battles learn and enjoy! Includes daily and periodic reports prepared by the Northwestern Front and its subordinate headquarters during the initial period of the war.

An enraged Fulton flew immediately to Victoria, B. Bennett, though having been seen just minutes earlier, could not be found to greet him, leaving a dejected Fulton to hop back on the plane and return to Ottawa. The final obstacle that had to be dealt with was the lack of cooperation from B. Electric to provide contracts to B. Electric was a large shareholder.

Contracts to purchase the power were absolutely necessary in order to begin construction on the Peace River. Frustrated by months of inaction, Bennett arranged a meeting with the head of B. Electric at a hotel in London. Having asked why it was that B. Bennett laid out his ultimatum in the following way:. We are not going to sit by and watch potential development in British Columbia be held back by any source.

Not big business, not by big labour, not by big government. I want you to clearly understand that. I will give you reasonable time, but it will be short. Electric from its owner, the federally controlled B. Power Corporation. Since British Columbia now owned the utility that would build and operate all the dams on the Canadian side of the Columbia, Bennett could uniquely set the treaty terms. This would be the birth of B. Hydro, and the construction of the Two River Plan. The second cycle, scheduled to end by would have the US provide electricity back to Canada instead of cash.
It is appropriate at this stage of our report to address the vital role played by two types of conferences that had occurred to make the development of British Columbia and other provinces possible. This development had occurred generally in spite of, and rarely through any help of, the Federal Government, with nation building Premiers often being forced to lead Ottawa by the nose in advancing great works. See appendix.
The first and most common events were the Interprovincial Conferences which addressed a variety of issues from local concerns, to large scale agricultural, and resource management. The second type of conference on the west coast was known as the Alaska-British Columbia- Yukon conferences A-BC-Y , of which three had formally occurred between and A brief examination of the contents of these conferences shall provide the reader a wonderful glimpse into the strategic thinking and possibilities which were coming into existence during this vital period of history.
Last week the Russian ambassador told me in a very clear way, that in the part of Russia opposite us, Russia is spending 40 percent of all its capital expenditures. We in the U. The three conferences that would occur amongst Alaska, British Columbia and the Yukon between and contained the germ seeds of the greater continental cooperation that was being organized as early as While intercontinental visions had begun with the planned linking of telegraph wires through the Bering Strait as early as the Alaska purchase of , and the designs for a rail tunnel connecting America to Russia through Canada  , the First World War and speculative economic insanity of the s had kept such visions from being realized.
The needs of World War II would kick start the orientation to joint cooperative development in the north beginning with the formation of the U.
The Canada Air routes to Alaska and Yukon, the Alaska Highway, and a pipeline and refinery system known to provide aviation fuel for the Northwest Staging System also known as the Canol Project would begin during this time. Economic areas do not always run with political areas. Friendly adjoining governments may be able to overcome this difficulty, to the general advantage. Political Boundaries may simply become less important. While the momentum to advance continental programs was largely dissipated after World War II, Bennett would revive the spirit alongside like minded thinkers such as Alaskan Governor William Egan.
After two important meetings between Bennett and the Alaskan Territorial Governor in and , the A-BC-Y Conferences would be formed in order to help advance the construction of the PGE Rail into Alaska via a variety of routes, as well as provide hydroelectric power to the Alaskan Panhandle. The panhandle is an area devoid of hydroelectric potential, yet strategically rich in resources, and Pacific ports . Due to the destructive role of Ottawa and Gen. It is known that NAWAPA was discussed at the third conference, but as the reports would not made public, it cannot yet be reported in what way it was received or presented.
By Spring , a U. Their report, published in October of that year, found that since NAWAPA would store and deliver a much greater amount of water with significantly fewer projects dams, canals, tunnels, etc. It is undoubtedly the case that leading engineering and pro-development networks across North America would have been very familiar with the program before its official unveiling.
We have the Columbia River. We have the Fraser River. We have the Peace River. We have the Liard River. We have the Taku. We have the Yuka, and many many other rivers. In fact, a total of a potential of 40 million horsepower [30 gigawatts]. And we have a great asset, which is now being exported, unused, for which we do not receive a single nickel. The Arctic Ocean, and the Pacific Ocean unused. To avoid venturing into speculative territory, choosing to remain instead on firm ground, we can say that the majority of those water systems outlined by Bennett in this interview have major roles to play in the NAWAPA design.
Everyone participating in these conferences could sense that the world was quickly changing for the worse. The time for such visionary programs was quickly running out.

The anti-science, anti-technological growth green policy would be cultivated by British agents within the Canadian and American establishments not to save nature, but rather to desperately put blockades on the continuation of programs such as the Bennett Grand Design. The first such program was the creation of the Aitlin Lakes Provincial Park to forestall the hydro plans for the Yukon River .
