Italy 5 1913
Right now, I stand in more twisted alliance then any of these countries had before the Great War. I have the allegiance of both the Central Powers (Austria-Hungary, Germany, and the Ottoman Empire) in addition to the alliance of the two of the Allied powers (Russia and Great Britain). Per the suggestion of my intelligence bureau, I am also going to attempt to make an official alliance with France to help me in my goals. All of these are secret. So naturally, all hell will break loose when I make my intentions.
I intend to keep my alliance with the Allies. It aligns with my goals of reclaiming our former land disputed by the Austrians. While Russian and Britain will be excellent help in taking on the Austrians, I want to gain the alliance of French, my closest neighbor and the closest Allied nation to the area of Austria-Hungary I need to reclaim. So I hope to communicate with them soon so they have my back against the A-H. My seaboard is protected by Britain right now
