Great Britain 5 1913

We have been hearing a war coming soon and it is now time to prepare. We are part of what is called the Allied Forces and we are to defend ourselves from the Central Powers. Our plan to do so is to get as many of the neutral countries as possible in order to isolate the Ottoman Empire. If we were to get Bulgaria, Romania, and Greece, then we would have just cut off the Ottoman Empire from the rest of the Central Forces. By doing so, it will be a easier to take over the Ottoman Empire.

Great Britain 5 1914

A lot has happened so far this year and we expect more to come. Archduke from Austria-Hungary was killed and this is going to start a war between Serbia and Austria-Hungary. One major thing that has happened is that Russia and Serbia attacked Bulgaria hoping to take over that territory. We honestly think that Russia is doing everything they can to take that peninsula that Bulgaria and the Ottoman Empire have.

As for strategy, we know that our navy is very strong and we feel if  we can take out everyone else’s navy, our land will be safe. Our navy is very strong and large, so by taking out everyone else’s navy, it will make it harder for another country to raid us.

Great Britain 5 1915

There has been a lot more war going on and Germany has taken over part of Russia. We weren’t able to help and defend Russia and we felt pretty bad. Russia is one of our closest allies and we weren’t able to help support them throughout. Russia is one ally that we don’t want to make mad because they are very powerful. Germany is really starting to stir the pot because they sunk the Lusitania. This ship had many citizens of ours. We know that our troops and our navy are stronger than Russia’s, but they have more numbers. Yeah, we can take out their navy, so then we’re safe, but they can help us get what we need to get done.

Great Britain 5 1916

One major thing we know is that Russia helped us weaken the strait. We sent quite a few troops to the Ottoman Empire to take over the strait but failed. The one good thing that came from that though is that we were able to weaken the Ottoman Empire greatly. The Ottoman Empire now only has roughly 300 troops. After the next turn, we might be able to take the Ottoman Empire. If we can take this, it will help strengthen Russia back up. Every year that we don’t have the strait, we aren’t able to get supplies to Russia. Over time, this will make Russia very weak, and we can’t let that happen.

Great Britain 5 1917

This year has been a rough year for the allies but we hope to bounce back. We lost a lot of territory this year as the German troops are so much stronger than us. We did gain the United States and their troops are great at helping. The only problem is the Germans army is so much bigger. They took over Belgium even though we had over 1000 troops to try to keep neutrality. France also had over 1500 troops in their to try to help. When the Germans went to try and take it, we, Great Britain, sent another 500 or so troops to try to keep Belgium but it didn’t work. This was the biggest battle of the game. Roughly 10,000 troops were fighting in this battle. Once Germany had Belgium, they sent many troops to F1 of France and took their capital. After this it was a stand still for quite some time until we were able to think of a plan. Our plan for next year is to try and take that back. France is a huge ally of ours and if we can’t have them, then they can’t either.

Another thing we need to do is attack the Ottoman Empire again because we need the Dardanelles Strait.

Great Britain 5 1918

Many people thought we were really dumb by doing what we did this year. We combined all of our navy and sent a lot of troops down to French North Africa. Another thing that happened is that Greece took back Serbia. Right after they did this though, Austria-Hungary decided they wanted to take back Serbia, so they did. While doing this, we allowed the United States and France to send some of my troops to France to take back their capital. Right after we did this, Austria-Hungary tried to take the capital of Italy, but resent all of my troops there to protect the capital. We then realized that our plan was going to work and we sent all of our remaining troops to the Ottoman Empire and took the Dardanelles Strait. This was one of our big objectives that we were able to accomplish. By accomplishing this, we strengthened Russia back to where they needed to be. We knew right away by sending as many troops as we did, we could take the strait. We sent over double the troops the Ottoman Empire would have been able to supply. Granted they took quite a few, we still remained victorious. In all, this year was great for the Allied Powers.

World War I Simulation

Ottoman Empire 5 1913

The world is about to break out into a huge world war! The Archduke was murdered and the whole world has their opinion about it. Knowing it was the wrong thing to do, I am in alliance with Austria-Hungary and Germany. We have our troops mobilized and are ready to go. Our strategy is mainly to be loyal to our alliance and keep the lines for communication open. We want to help them in any way so that they will help us.

Ottoman Empire 5 1914

Today Bulgaria was attacked by Russia and Serbia. I couldn’t let the Allied Powers gain that country because then there would be no way for me to get to the rest of my alliances. My only choice was to help them defend their territory, so that’s what I did. We sent troops to help them and we won! This was a loss we didn’t want to have to deal with so early in the war, but we made it work. Also by doing this, Bulgaria allied with us and because of that, I had a window in to the rest of the war. After that attack there was kind of a stand-still with the war, everyone focused their energies on strategizing and making a plan for the next year. We were planning on sending Russia to attack Germany the next year.

Ottoman Empire 1915

This was the year, Germany attacked Russia… and took part of it! We thought of this as a great success, but we knew that now our empire would be under attack. We were preparing for a war in our O2, so we moved more troops over there. This also caused the Allied Powers to get a little on edge, so they moved a lot of their troops around in order to have a better chance on attacking in 1916.

Ottoman Empire 1916

As and allied group, we decided to do more movement and not focus on war. We want to be prepared for whatever the Allies are going to throw our way We got attacked by Russia in our O2, even though they had more troops, ours were stronger and we were victorious! However, right after the war was over, we got attacked in our O1 by Great Britain, Italy, and France. This battle was a bigger deal for us, but we still managed to pull through! I was so proud of our troops and how well they fought and worked together. We didn’t completely do it on our own though, Bulgaria came and helped us, repaying the favor from earlier in the war.

Ottoman Empire 1917

This has been a big year for the Central Alliance! We watched as the others in our alliance attacked Serbia and won! We cheered from afar and asked them how else we could help and what else we could/should attack. We watched them fight a big battle in Belgium. It was a close one, but they managed to pull it out. Then, on top of that Germany went into France and took their F1! Their capital! We also supported our alliance in their attack on Montenegro which was a success. And then it was our turn. Along with Bulgaria, we attacked Romania and took control of that country. It was a great way to make the Allied Powers sweat a little.

Ottoman Empire 1918

This year the Central Powers attacked Italy. First we attacked their capital in order to try and take control, but the Allies succeeded in that attack and we lost. But, that didn’t deter us, we then attacked the lower part of Italy and took control. If the war had lasted longer, we may have been able to take control of all of it. The Allies took back Serbia and then we took it back again. We basically allowed the Allies to take back France. We didn’t think it was worth more bloodshed. Also, we were attacked and Great Britain took our capitol. It was a tough loss, but we had no notice of attack before it was too late. The good news is the war is over and the bloodshed is over for everyone.

Serbia 5 1913

The Archduke was killed!!! Tensions have been rising and allies are being formed and war seems almost impossible to avoid. We feel threatened by the central powers. I plan with France, Great Britain, and Russia. If Austria Hungary and Germany Attack, I hope that Russia will defend me. I believe that my alliance with France and Great Britain will make Germany hesitate to leave in order to prevent an attack.

Montenegro 5 1913

There has been a lot of talk of war. There are rumors that Serbia was responsible for the killing of the Archduke. They denied that anything was their fault, however. We are allies with Serbia and hope that we do not get dragged into war.

Greece 5 1913

Tensions are rising and war is about to break out. We do not plan on getting involved in this war. We need to stay neutral until 1917.

Serbia 5 1914

Austria and us do NOT get along. Our plan is to take them down. We publicly allied with France and Russia. We secretly allied with Great Britain and Romania. Our plan is to ally with Belgium and Bulgaria. We hope that they do, because they could hurt us deeply if they join the central powers. France is going to take over Germany and with all the countries allied they will have a huge army.

(Second half of 1914) We don’t trust Bulgaria! We moved 150 troops into Bulgaria along with Russia and destroyed Bulgaria. We have a plan to take out Austria Hungary. We all do this by getting control of every region surrounding, then when the time is right we will all swoop in and declare war on Austria Hungary.

Greece 5 1914

With us staying neutral until 1917, not much happens. At this point we plan to join with the allied powers once we can split off.

Montenegro 5 1914

A lot of action today. We are hoping that if we stay quiet, we can keep ourselves out of this war.

Serbia 5 1915

Germany just tried to take over us but they didn’t succeed. We need to get A3 and A2. Germany however DID take over part of Russia which is bad!! we need that back. Thank God for Montenegro and Romania for helping us out otherwise we would be gone.

Montenegro 5 1915

We had to help Serbia so we sent all our troops to Serbia so they wouldn’t be defeated. I don’t know what we will do now… luckily we are small anyways. Hopefully no one takes advantage of our troops absence.

Greece 5 1915

Still neutral and staying out of everyones way. If we weren’t neutral we probably would have sent some troops over to help Serbia because they were attacked today.

Serbia 5 1916

Serbia didn’t have enough troops to hold everyone off. We have been attacked. We are counting on our allies to come help us out when they can. They are our last hope!!

Montenegro 5 1916

We still have zero troops in Montenegro. Praying for peace in our country.

Greece 5 1916

This is our last day to be neutral. Enjoying the relaxation while we can. Tomorrow we hope to see some action.

Serbia 5 1917

Today we had hoped things would go a little differently. We were hoping that some of our allies could help us get Serbia back, but thats not what happened. Instead, our allies were VERY focused on getting back part of Russia and part of France. We attempted it twice and failed both times. Luckily, Germanys troops are thinning out so maybe we can comeback from all this tomorrow!

Montenegro 5 1917

Today was a bad day. Unfortunately because we had previously helped out Serbia by sending our troops over, we were attacked today and lost the battle. Central Powers has such a good rating… we can’t compete. If we have time, we plan to get Serbia back and possible Montenegro as well.

Greece 5 1917

Today we are no longer neutral. We allied with allied powers. We were hoping that no one would touch us today and thats what we got! We still have all of our troops and tomorrow we plan to use them to help out Serbia and our other allies.

Serbia 5 1918

Greece saved us!!! We have Serbia back.  I hope no one takes us again.

Austria Hungary took us over again. There’s nothing we can do at this point. We are apart of Central Powers. Luckily our allies have been gaining territory.

Montenegro 5 1918

We hope Greece can save us today, but we know that their priority is more focused on Serbia.

Serbia has been taken over again. We have no hope anymore. We are apart of Central Powers.

Greece 5 1918

We are fearing that Bulgaria may try to attack us and try and capture Macedonia. We hope this doesn’t happen.

Bulgaria is attacking Greece. France is sending some troops to help along with their navy. We won!!  We are in allied powers to end off the war.

World War I Simulation

Russia P5 1913

We as a country made several alliances, along with mobilizing our troops. With these new alliances, we as a country believe we can win this war. We will stop German and Austrian expansion to the east. We will begin our attack in the south and our first goal will be to take the Ottoman Empire. With our vast numbers of troops they will be no match for the Russian Army!

Russia P5 1914

We have made an attack on Bulgaria as we had reason to believe they were siding with the Central Powers. Serbia assisted us in the assault. It seems as we were correct as the Ottoman Empire came to aid Bulgaria in their defense. We were out numbered, and the battle was lost. We did manage to spread some of the Ottoman Empires troops. Making their southeastern borders more vulnerable. Our allies have begun to move troops to Belgium. We must hold Belgium from the Germans. The Ardennes forest will help France defend themselves from Germany. As long as allied troops are in Belgium France will be protected. Germany declared war against us. They have attacked and destroyed a part of our navy. They will pay for this treacherous act!!

Russia P5 1915

The Germans have made another attack against Mother Russia. They have taken our most western region. This will not go unanswered. We will attack the Germans and reclaim what is ours! We have moved 3,00,000 troops towards our Western boarders. We will retake and conquer the Germans! We have also moved our troops towards our southern borders. Making a move on the Ottoman Empire. They have increased their number of troops around our borders. This is seen as a threat and will not go without action. We will attack the Ottoman Empire. Taking them will allow more access to the sea. We need the Dardanelles Straight in order for our allies to provide us with supplies.

Russia 1916

Today we kept declaring war on Ottoman Empire and kept losing! We lost so many troops, Russia’s troops are not strong so they did not help much even though we moved 3,000 into R2 and R4. We had to do that because they won the ottoman empire and they could have got into Russia and took the whole thing. We received great losses. Our allies assisted us in the assault but we still fell short. Over 7,000,000 young men lost their lives in the attempt to take the Ottoman Empire and reclaim our land from Germany. It may be in our best interest to protect our land and stay away from combat for awhile. Enough Russian lives have been lost. It’s time for our allies to get involved and start putting an end to the central powers’s anarchy.

Russia P5 1917

The Central Powers made an attack on Italy. Reinforcements from France and Great Britain came in their time of need. Italy was held and the Allies were victorious! This was a big turning point for us and our allies in this war. Germany attacked Belgium later that year and we were defeated. Germany took control of Belgium and then attacked France. Even with a lot of reinforcements France was still defeated. The German Army was to strong. Troops from the United States and Great Britain were transported to another area of France to prepare for an attack. We build up troops in an effort to defend the land we still controlled.

Russia P5 1918

Austria-Hungry have attacked a part of Italy. Great Britain came to their aid bringing troops from their navy. We successfully defended Italy. Great Britain then made an attack on the Ottoman Empire. They were victorious as well! the Ottoman Empire was no match for Great Britain’s vast army. The Dardanelles straight was finally taken. Our allies can now bring us supplies through it. Our soldiers are better equipped now. The United States and Great Britain made one final push back towards Germany! We were victorious and took back the rest of France. Germany is in their downfall now. With the United States, Great Britain and France, the Allies could defeat all of Germany and Austria-Hungry. We could reclaim the Balkans and help our allies in Serbia.

United States 5 1914
We just got a telegraph from Great Britain. It appears that Serbia assassinated Austria Hungary. Tensions are high because we anticipate that Austria Hungary is going to try to send troops over. We think they are going to go to war with us. Serbia denies any involvement in this. They think this was done by rebels.

United States 5 1915
Our biggest fears came true. Austria Hungary did attack Serbia and sent troops in. It didn’t take Serbia long to fall because they just didn’t have the resources or military to put up much of a defense. Now that Serbia is under Nazi control, we anticipate other country’s becoming involved as well due to alliances. Thankfully we are an ocean away, and the war will be over once France and Great Britain join the defense.

United States 5 1916
France and Italy are now involved in the war along the side of Great Britain. They are mounting an attack to push back the Ottoman Empire and their allies. Belgium and the eastern part of France must hold the line, otherwise we may need to send reinforcements not only of supplies but also in troops. If they fall, we will need to join the war effort to defeat the Central Powers. The future of freedom and democracy is in peril.

United States 5 1917
We have joined the Allies in an effort to stop the Central Powers. They have attacked Belgium with 7000 troops and Belgium is now under their control. Romania and Russia have mounted a strong defense after Germany attacked on that front as well. After much discussion with our Allied partners, it was decided that France and Italy would mount a counter attack on Austria Hungary. We moved 500 of our troops into France, but our territories continue to be taken and our armies are dwindling. Germany continues to attack France and no matter how many troops we and our Allied partners send, we continue to lose ground. This update just came in – We have lost France. Lord help us……..

United States 5 1918
As of now we have moved all of our troops to France, however, this seems to be a lost cause. We continue to lose territory due to Germany’s repeated attacks in France. Great Britain has also moved their troops to France but they had no better luck than we did. We declared war in F1 territory but those German bastards used poison gas and we lost everyone. Our hope was that Russia would attack them through Bulgaria and we would take back over the eastern territory. We have only

been able to recover Germany, but the Central Powers were victorious in holding their ground and we have lost the war. This isn’t over……..

Italy 13, 1913

This year we decided to not mobilize. The reason that we chose this is because we wanted to not have to fight for either side or be put in a situation were we needed to. Both sides at this point are trying to recruit us to there side and so we can ensure that they will not be attacking us and we are protected and so we strategically don’t need to or have to mobilize a this point in time.

Italy 14, 1914

This year we had to remain neutral. It was clear that both sides wanted to be in an alliance with us still. We decided to portray that we were just completely neutral so that we wouldn’t be attacked. We did know that we needed to make a secret alliance with France and the allies when 1915 rolled around, but we didn’t want to stir the dust until we had to. We did strategically talk to France though to make sure that they were willing to do that with us.

Italy 15, 1915

This year we decided that it was in our best interest to strategically make alliances with all of the all of the allies countries including the alliance that we needed with France. Great Britans country of Egypt got attacked and so we decided to let Great Britain take some of our troops on there amazing navy to help defend that. Doing a favor for Great Britain is strategic and can help us in the future if we get attacked also. It was also to show the other allies forces a definite action that Italy was on there side for sure.

Italy 16, 1916

Today we got attacked by Austria Hungry. They sent 5000 troops at us. France came to our rescue thank goodness and we also strategically decided to pull out of Egypt to defend the homeland and then to also move troops from f2 to f1 to also defend. Allies were victorious but we were weakened. We are planning to see how we can capture A1 and A2 for our objectives. We think that if we just wait a little bit longer the other people fighting with us will help knock the enemies troops making it easier. Russia is attacking and because we all have to work together with the alliance, we decided to send the 118/ of our 128 to help them. this is smart so then France said that they would send some of there troops down to help us and then we will have more troops to be able to get the A1 and A2 that we need. I am very nervous only being left with 10 troops there, but France has agreed to move 282 troops there now incase we get attacked.

Italy 17, 1917

Today Italy was in a time of no action. We were severely injured by previous attacks and failed attempts at helping other countries get land. Our troop numbers were nearly nonexistent and during this time we only had French troops to protect our country. Our plan is to wait it out until we get more troops the next day and then try to get our objectives then.

Italy 18, 1918

Today I attempted to get my objective by sending my remaining 810 troops from I1 to I2 to try to take the land and reach my objective of getting Trieste in Austria Hungary. Even though it was a good effort, the central powers were able to still keep it because of there alliances helping them, I then took my navy to help take back Serbia for the Allies and that attempt was victorious. We also then helped defend Greece. The central powers decided to attack my I1 to take my capital but we got reinforcements from Great Britain and France to be able to keep it. They did sadly take over I2 though.

Great Britain 6 1913

  We have been hearing of a war coming so Great Britain needs to prepare. We are preparing to fight the battles so we can take over countries. We are allied with France, Russia, Japan, and Portugal. Our main objective for the first war is that we need to keep our original country. This means that we can’t let anyone attack our country and if they do then we need to make sure that they can’t take it over. Our navy is very big and our ranking is a 10. Our army isn’t as strong as our navy, with our ranking being 7. By the end of 1913, we cleared our first objective and the Central Powers did not take over Great Britain. Hopefully by the end of the simulation, we will not have anyone take over our country.

Great Britain 5 1914

  In 1914, Serbia and Russia tried to take over Bulgaria but the Allies (Serbia and Russia) lost to the Central Powers. Also Serbia killed the Arch Duke which started all of the disputes and wars during this time. In Great Britain, we decided that we were going to lay low and try to not get on anyones bad side. Our strategy for the next couple years is that we will start to take over things that we need so that we could get our objectives done. During these few years, no one declared war on us and we still had our original country so we were in good shape. With the Arch Duke being killed, Great Britain decided to stay out of the drama and away from the different countries and not get into it so that we couldn’t become a target in the end.

Great Britain 5 1915

  In 1915, The Central Powers decided to take a part of Russia away from the Allies. Germany was the country that decided to take away one decent sized part of Russia. Now that we had one less area, we had to try to fight back. Germany also decided to sink the Lusitania ship so that there was no boat in the oceans. The Allies did not want to start another war because of how strong the Germany army is. We weren’t quite sure how high their ranking was but we didn’t want to start any wars where we could lose more things.

Great Britain 5 1916

  In 1916, the Allied forces attempted to take the Dardanelles Strait, but we lost, due to the Central Powers strength. The Ottoman Empire decided to fight back against the Allies and won. As soon as they could, Portugal and the United States joined with us because we persuaded them to be on the Allied Forces. We figured that if we could get a couple more countries to join us, then we would have a stronger force. It was hard for the Allies because a lot of our countries were being taken over by the Central Powers. In order for us to fight back we needed to start a war or multiple wars to gain them back.

Great Britain 5 1917

  In 1917, there was a huge fight in Belgium. Germany took F1 of France, Austria-Hungary took Serbia and Romania over. Great Britain couldn’t fight back because the German troops are too strong of an army.

Great Britain 5 1918

  In 1918, Great Britain combined our entire army and navy together and sent 1,844 troops to French North Africa. After that happened, Greece took back Serbia, but then Germany took back Serbia. In the United States, Germany, and Great Britain joined forces and took back France. Great Britain saved Italy with our troops because they couldn’t fight back. After Italy was under recovery, Great Britain went to the Ottoman Empire and decided to take the Dardanelles Strait because we needed it for our objectives. At the end of the simulation, we passed all of our objectives and didn’t get our country taken over.

Italy 4 1913

I feel the tensions rising in the countries surrounding me.  I am starting to get nervous that I might be stuck in the middle of something I don’t want to be.  I think its my best option to ally with France but keep it a secret so it doesn’t set off the Austria-Hungary’s.  That was if the central powers want to try and invade I can call over France to help defend.  I need to keep a close eye on France and Great Britain.  If they wanted to get to Austria- Hungary they might invade me to get their.  I can’t trust anyone at this point. 

Italy 4 1914

The tensions have boiled over!  Austria- Hungary declared war on us.  It was expected but not this early.  Little did they know I was in contact with France and Great Britain.  When they heard that I was in trouble they jumped into action and accompanied us in war.  After a hard fought battle the allies came through victories!  We lost lots of troops but we will rebuild and come back better than ever!  The ally powers have been talking and I think we all have a plan to derail the enemy.

Italy 4 1915

After a successful defense in the last year the ally powers have developed a plan to use our powerful navies to attack and destroy the central powers Navy.  We have mobilized our troops and moved France and Great Britain’s troops into Italy and we plan on taking over Austria Hungary in our next moves.  There is a steady wall all around the central powers and it is just a matter of time before that wall caves in on the central powers.

Italy 4 1916

The Allies have come up with the plan of taking over the Ottoman empire.  We are teaming with Great Britain and France.  Our fail proof plan failed and we lost 200 troops.  We are going to take it back to the drawing boards and develop a defense strategy for the rest of this year.

Italy 4 1917

We were surprised when the Central powers decided against attacking us in the beginning of the year.  The allies took advantage of this mistake made by them and we took over more than half of Austria Hungary.  The attacks were led by 4000 Italy troops.  We have them right where we want them.  Backed in a corner.  The United States joined the fight this year and will be a great help in defeating the Central powers once and for all.

The allies went into this year with great confidence.  After taking over part of Austria Hungary last year Italy had over four thousand troops and left 1000 troops in Italy as backup.  We weren’t expecting an attack from German.  But that it exactly what happened.  Germany attacked Italy troops in Austria Hungary so Italy sent up over a thousand troops for support.  It was our five thousand vs Germany three thousand.  Unfortunately, Germany got the best of us.  We lost Italy.  And from there on out it only got worse for us.  The allies put together a total of 8 thousand troops to go into war against germany including over a thousand from the United States.  Germany put together 4 thousand troops.  Some how some way Germany came out with the victory.  That was the end of the war and in a total shock.  We lost.

Ottoman Empire 4 1913

My alliances and I got together to discuss what we wanted to do (Germany and Austria Hungary). Our main goal is to attack Serbia for taking for killing the Archduke. But first we need to take out Romania to do that. The first thing we decided was that we either needed to take out Italy or align with them. Austria Hungary talked to Italy about aligning with the Central Powers and they reclined, so the best thing to do was take them out the next day. Ottoman Empire also made an alliance with Bulgaria to hopefully go behind their back and take them over.

Ottoman Empire 4 1914

Austria Hungary, Germany, and Ottoman Empire mobilized our troops. I moved 200 of my troops to Bulgaria so that we could attack Romania in the future. Our first move was to attack Italy. Austria Hungary and Germany moved troops to Italy, But the Allied Powers were victorious. Our next plan was to attack Belgium, and the Allies were victorious again. Hopefully with them using all of their troops it will give us an advantage.

Ottoman Empire 4 1915

Today is the day we try and fight back. My goal is to get Romania and Greece but unfortunately my alliance has other plans right. Serbia it is. The Central Powers tried attacking Serbia, but the Allied Powers were again victorious. So far our armies have not been strong enough, because the Allied powers brings in quite a lot of troops to battle against us. Our next plan is to attack Belgium one last time and see if we can get it, finally this time we were victorious. The allies come back with Attacking 02 of my country, and unfortunately were victorious. I will have to regain my territory as soon as possible.

Ottoman Empire 4 1916

Today our goal is to regain the territory that we have lost and gain some new territory. The Allies declared war first and were able to take Austria Hungary’s A3 territory by using troops from Russia. After gaining that territory they tried to take over The Ottoman Empire capitol. I decided to move my 200 troops back to 01 to hopefully make a difference. Even though I only had 1900 troops and the Allies had about 2500, somehow we pulled it off. After that war was done for the day, and we decided to keep planning for the next day. Hopefully tomorrow will be better and we can start gaining some countries.

Ottoman Empire 4 1917

The Allies started us off by declaring war to take back Belgium, we did not have enough troops to cover, and they used poison gas to kill our men. Belgium is now Allied Powers territory. They also took over Austria-Hungary’s A2 and A1. So far, this war is not turning out for the Central powers. Serbia offered the Ottoman Empire an alliance to help take over Bulgaria, in exchange for safety of my country. I declined the alliance, so that I would;t go against my own alliance. Hopefully tomorrow will be better for the Central Powers.

Ottoman Empire 4 1918

The Central Powers started off with war. Luckily there weren’t many troops in Serbia, Romania, Greece, and Italy so we were able to gain some new territory. We then proceeded to gain back 02, A1, A3, and A2. The allies tried to take over Germany’s capitol but were unsuccessful. The Central Powers also gained part of France. We cam back strong and ended up winning the war.
