Blood and Iron, Germany 1860-1918.

The German state of Prussia was the driving force behind the unification of dozens of German states into a single nation, which officially came about as the result of the 1871 Versailles proclamation following a decade of instability and war. The new German state possessed a large population of over 60 million citizens and one of the world's largest industrial bases, much to the envy and fear of it's weaker neighbours.

The shifting balance of power which resulted of Germany's emergence in world affairs prompted countries such as France, Great Britain and Russia to establish alliances to contain Germany. Germany and other European powers began arming and equipping vast armies and navies with modern weapons, such as breach loading artillery, battleships and machine guns. This superstitious and aggressive attitude made a major war seem inevitable, which eventually occured in 1914.

It was only during this war that the destructive power of modern weaponry was fully realised. Many older military elements, such as cavalry, were rendered useless, and victory could only be achieved after massive loss of life. Germany was to eventually surrender in November 1918 after four long and bloody years of war in which Germany lost over 2 million soldiers. Germany's opponents were hardly better off; Russia lost 2 million soldiers, France 1.2 million and Britain 750,000.

The emergence of the unified German state presented a new balance of power in Europe which was dealt with quite poorly by the nations involved. It was only after two highly destructive wars and subsequent political division and re-unification could Germany be peacefully accepted into Europe.

A very good scenario just like your other scenarios, but I think this is even better than the others!

There is a lot of big naval and air battles and when an alliance is formed with Austria-Hungary another front is opened. As Germany, I take on the Dutch, French, and English, while Austria-Hungary protects my eastern borders from the Russians. It took awhile to get an alliance with Austria Hungary, I had to fight them in a brief war (which ended in a stalemate), and provide them resources.

Well I'm not through playing yet so it's kinda hard to tell. Defeating the Rhine Confederation was a cakewalk, as was Holland and Belgium. But it might be a challenge to defeat the French forces on land and use my navy to stop British troops coming to aid them.

Interesting concept. There are some WW1 scenarios, but not any of this magnitude.

From what I can understand, this is an accurate map for western Europe.

Well its WW1. Pretty interesting story if you ask me lol. I wish you would've used a little more scripting. However, I understand that would be fairly difficult considering the timespan of this scenario.

Hesitate to give 5 though you may deserve it.

Wish the map had been bigger and included more of Europe. What you have may be sufficient and probably contains what's relevant to the rise of Germany.

Great.

Enjoyed playing it. Keep up the good work!
