WWI Simulation Student Journal: France & Montenegro

France 1913

After the Fraco-Prussian war Germany has been making major advancements in Europe. Not only have they taken our province of Alsace and Lorraine, they have also made great economic strides. I can’t let Germany become too powerful. I don’t know what their intentions are and I am weary of what their next move will be. I plan to mobilize my army in 1914 to help combat this uneasy feeling. As they get closer to my capital I also plan to deploy more troops into F1. As for Belgium being in the facility as well adding troops into this zone can help keep to honor their neutrality. I hope my allies help to depend on me as I will for them. I also want to ally with Montenegro in the future.

Yay! Through our grit and hard work we came out successful in the Balkans war. Allowing us to finally become a kingdom. We have gained a mass amount of territory from Serbia and Albania, however with this location we are very isolated in Europe. With our allies being a sea away we need their help as much as possible. With the central powers being a short jaunt away, we can easily be overrun. I must in the future make treaties with my allies to depend on me. My first order of business is to make an alliance with France. However without any Navy I’ll have a hard time getting there. Maybe I should ally with Italy because of their close proximity and access to a navy. 

France 1914

After hearing word from Belgium I have agreed to help defend them against Germany. They have agreed to help me out in return but I must honor their neutrality. I have decided to mobilize after Serbia, my ally, assassinated Austria Hungary, Archduke Franz zferdinand. I fear that the central powers will take it out on the allied powers. Being that the Central powers are so close to me and Germany already has me on edge I feel this is the best move to keep my country at ease. Central powers have already taken it out on Russia, I fear that I will be next. The Central powers have defeated our allied navy in the Baltic sea, proving that they are a strong force to be reckoned with. I also want to move 1500 troops into f1 to help defend against the central movement to G2.

Serbia has made an uprising not apologizing for their assisnation. The central powers have made it clear that they are unhappy with this and have banded together against the allied powers. They have made movement closer to us. I Fear the central powers will take over much more powerful Serbia. Although My beloved country needs us, the best thing for the allies would be to save Serbia and their impressive army. I feared this day would come. The scent of gunpowder is approaching. The sound of footsteps are baring near. There is light at the end of the tunnel, Romania has joined us in defending Serbia. We have come out victorious!

France 1915

Getting word that Italy has joined the allied powers, this will be very beneficial in protecting our land. After seeing what the central powers have done to our navy in the baltic sea, I’m not going to take any chances. I will move my navy to the medittarean with hopes that It will be protected. I have also decided to help defend the north Sea after our allied victory. The central powers have stormed into belgium. I must help protect them, I will move 2282 troops into Belgium to help defend against the central powers. As well as moving my navy to the north sea to transport British troops to belgium. This will help defend my f1, in order to keep my capital. The central powers have also decided to attack italy. In order, to defend their land I will send 700 of my troops over to help.

Our allies at sea have been very active. We took a huge blow after our battle against the central powers. Losing almost half our troops has hurt us greatly. I must lay low to help recover against our major loss. Luckily, Italy has joined the allied powers. This will make it much easier for transportation with their navy in close proximity. They also can help defend us against the central powers aggressive approach in the event we were to be invaded. Bulgaria has allied with the central powers. This heat behind is very unnerving. 

France 1916

It’s a call for war, I want my land back and Italy is ready to bring the heat. In order to distract the German troops out of A1 we are going to battle in Austria Hungary’s A2. Although we may have lost its time to move on. I want to help defend italy but I also need to protect myself. I will move some troops to protect my country as well as some into f2 to provide my country with enough protection for any german aggression that may come. 

Montenegro 1916

My neighbors have decided to go to war in A3, I can hear the roar of the weapons. After the smoke has cleared, so many have been lost. It’s not looking good in the south. My people are starting to fear. The central powers are just too strong, we can’t win a battle with their numbers and their power. I have lost all hope they have moved into Serbia, we don’t have any hope. They are just too strong. The poison gas is filling our lungs. We are just too small. We are done for. Our wives, our children, I fear for what the central powers have in store for our people. 

France 1917

We have heard word that the United states has joined the allies, there is hope. With my excessive amount of troops in Belgium I will help Britain take G1 or at least weaken their troops. Well shoot, we have lost troops, I hope that poking the bear will not give them motivation to take belgium. Italy has asked for help in taking A2 although this may have the first time we have more troops. We can spare 500 troops with hopes to take our rightful land back. Once again we have fallen, there are just too many and just too strong. However their numbers are falling, and with the help of the United States we have hope. Britain has declared war in G1, another lost however they don’t know what we have in store. We have decided to go for G1 putting multiple troops into Belgium. Hopefully the third time’s the charm. Once again. But we have good News. We have taken back our land! Our precious Alsace and Lorraine it is back to their rightful owners. We are moving our navy to the Atlantic sea. This will provide transportation for British troops into Germany’s capital. This will be an essential move for Germany as they are the strongest link in the central powers. 

Montenegro 1917

Although they haven’t taken our land yet I fear the worst is upon us. I hope they believe we have mobization but the truth is we don’t have any. The only thing I have left is my allies to defend me. Now that navies have moved into the meditarrean I’m fearing their distance. We have lost one of our closest allies. Romania is gone, all I have now Is Greece and Italy. They are attacking Greece. We can’t move anything, Greece is all on their own. I left all alone. We are done. They haven’t attacked us yet. I can’t imagine the fear my people have. 

France 1918

Our soldiers are exhausted. This fight has gone on for too long. We can only hope that the war is drawing to a close with us on top. We are looking good but you never know what the central powers have up their sleeve. How dare they take back our rightful ground. That was ours for the taking. The cursed central powers ruined all of our hard work. The great travel through the forest was all for nothing. We gave it our all, we are very thankful for the United States army however it just wasn’t enough to defend them. We need Belgium, we’ll do everything we can to protect them. We have lost so many troops, we did everything we could but the central power had the numbers. With all of our efforts, we came in defeat.

Montenegro 1918

We are still alive but I fear not for long. We can only hope that the war is coming to the end. We have seen enough bloodshed, our poor citizens having been fearing for their lives for way too long. We have no troops, nothing to help defend, all the navy’s have left us. We’ll just lie low until our inevitable fate is to come. I can hear their troops moving, I don’t know what they are planning but I fear for our allies in the north. I feel a fight drawing near in the distance, we can only hope that the allies will win. It was a major victory, I now have Italy near to help defend me. We have Survived! The war is over! Even with having no troops we have survived. Our people couldn’t be more relieved.
