America 8, 1913

The Archduke of Austria Hungary had just been killed by a Serbian. In one way or another AH will take this in a seriously negative way. I’m talking about war, and AH has allies. When one goes to war, so does the other, this is not going to end well. Our plan is to stay out of it, stay as neutral for as long as we can until there is no other choice. I hope it won’t have to come to that. 

America 8, 1914

Bulgaria and Germany have made an Alliance. We have been keeping ourselves on the down low, but I feel we won’t be able to keep this act forever. When the time comes, we will form alliances to protect ourselves. 

(Play by Play) Germany has attacked Russia with 230 troops in R3, but they did not defeat Russia. Ottiman Empire has attacked Russia, sending in 200 troops to R4 , hopefully taking down their defense. Russia was again successful in defending their land. AH attacked Serbia with 34 troops, will it be enough? Seems not, Serbia held its ground and won. The Slaves now have representation of AH. 

Seems war is raging on in Europe, yet we will remain neutral. We can’t afford to jump into another war half assed.  

America 8, 1915

These are desperate times. Thanks to our friends in Europe, we lost 128 fellow Amercians when the British Passenger Liner, Lusitania, was attacked by German U-boats. We have not the resources to plunge ourselves into war just yet. We haven’t readied ourselves for such a task. But, I see our neutrality will not last forever. If this war does not end soon, we will join the war. For the loss of our brothers and sisters on the Lusitania, and for every man and women before them. We will take down Germany. 

(Play by Play) Italy has joined the Allies. AH, Bulgaria, and the Ottoman Empire all declared war on Serbia. The Central powers were victorious. The Ottoman Empire moved 1000 troops to o2. AH 900 from A1 to A2. Belgium has joined the Allies. Russia moved 2000 troops from R1 to R4. They also moved 1500 R1 to R3. France moved — troops from F1 to F2. Great Britain moved 2500 to Belgium. 

America 8, 1916

Romania has joined the Allies. Our rage has been brewing, and the fighting in Europe has been growing. With the alliances, and the domination, with everything. If this keeps going, there may not BE a Eruope left. If we join the war and take out the problem (Germany) the war will end. Our revenue will grow once again. I think it’s worth the hassle. We will begin to train troops for the battle yet to come. Be ready Germany

(Play-by-Play) France and Italy are attacking A2 of AH. Ottoman has moved 100 troops to Serbia. The Allies were victorious. Great Britain is attacking G1 with 1308 troops. The Central Powers, using poison gas, managed to keep their land and emerge victorious. France and Russia are attacking R2. The Ottoman empire is moving 1000 troops to defend. The Ottoman Empire was victorious. The Central Powers (Germany and AH) are attacking in R3 with over 5000 troops. Russia defends with 1568, but lost. The Central Powers moved 600 from G1 to G2 for a stronger defence. Great Britain is attacking G1 with 654 troops. Italy and France are attacking A1. The Allies lost. France is attacking G2 with 1000 troops, and won. 

America 8, 1917

Germany has made an alliance with our neighboring country Mexico. We have officially joined the war, allying with the Allies. We plan to move 500 troops to F1 France to attack Germany. 

(Play-by-play) Germany and AH are attacking G2 with over 1500 troops. America (me) is sending 500 troops to help protect G2. Germany and AH are attacking Romania. Romania was lost, the Central Powers were victorious. The Ottoman Empire is attacking Greece. Italy is sending their 559 to defend. The Allied Powers won, and Greece is still safe. Great Britain is attacking Germany in G1 with 1308 troops. Central Powers won. Russia is attacking R3 with 6420 troops. 

Russia collapsed on Nov 26 1917. They surrendered! 

(Play-by-play) Italy is attacking A1. The Allies were victorious.

America 8, 1918

(Play-by-play) America and the Allies moved troops to G2 and won. Italy is now attacking the Ottoman Empire and Serbia. The Allies successfully captured Serbia. AH and Germany are attacking G2. Allies failed to defend and lost G2. Great Britain is attacking G1 with 1152 troops. Britain lost all of its troops and lost G1.

The war is not going our way. We have no one to protect in Italy or France, if the Central powers really wanted to, they could destroy us all. And there is nothing for us to do. We have lost.
