In any case the Whites have pretty much collapsed.

I took Perma and Samara but the Whites moves strong forces to oppose me. Any additional advance by the Reds will require more forces

The Kinder, Gentler Red Movement (KGRM) With four of its five enemies defeated can now look to the future with hope and with confidence.
The success of the UFS (Union of Free Soviets) was a beacon to oppressed peoples all over the world.

The fall of Omsk triggered the collapse of the Kolchak regime and the far eastern provinces fell into anarchy.
All of Germany east of the Rhine was quickly occupied and turned over to the new Coalition of German Soviets (CGS). France annexed the rest of German territory west of the Rhine and a peace treaty was signed in 1931 ending the struggle, at least for the time being.
In reaction to the KGRM threat, France moved towards authoritarianism, forming an alliance with Belgium, the Netherlands, Czechoslovakia, Romania, Hungary and Yugoslavia. When Spain erupted into civil war in 1936, French troops were quick to intervene and ensured a speedy victory by the reactionary forces of Francisco Franco before the end of the year,

not even the actual Bolsheviks won the civil war by the '20 Objective Cities Captured' by January 1922 criteria! But perhaps because the Bolsheviks had indeed defeated the bulk of the White forces by the end of 1920, the victory point total was not so heavily against them.
And, of course, they did not have the Left/SR people constantly complaining and draining victory points away either!
In any event, I thoroughly enjoyed the game. I am off to dream of a brighter future for all mankind...
