MMORPG style Axis and Allies Chess

As if Axis and Allies the boardgame wasn't time consuming enough as it was..

Some time ago I thought up a version of Axis and Allies the board game where every move's outcome is decided by a game of Chess.

Now with the advent of the MMORPG i Imagine this might be easier to achieve.

Basically every army of World War 2 would be controlled by individual players who fight their battles out with chess. The Commanders would play a game to make their strategic moves. Then generals would play a game to move their armies. Then armies would fight man to man with a chess match each.

By the end of a battle the outcome would be decided by how many people lost their matches on each side and the whole process would start over again after the Commander's next move.

As if Axis and Allies wasn't long enough of a game? I've just turned it into a year long adventure !

       Isn't that the (variation of) order of play that D&D fans aspire to?

       I dont think that MMORPG games are that far away from having full on 100 person battles. no need to play chess. I have heard World of Warcraft can be like this but Im sure a WW2 style game like this is not far off.

       Might even make a nice tournament to bring more biz to the local chess shop.
