Belgium 1914 WWI Simulation

The archduke was killed! Austria-Hungry, Russia, France, Ottoman Empire, Serbia, Germany, and Belgium have mobilized. I have mobilized because Germany and France both did and I am supposed to defend my territory at all costs. I have made a secret defensive alliance with France and am trying to get great Britain to defend me as well. I believe that Italy is making alliances with both the allied and central powers and they will be in very big trouble soon. Great Britain has just mobilized. I think that the central powers will start war first and sadly be taken down by the allied powers. I also think that Bulgaria is making alliances with the allied countries. The United States has now mobilized. Germany has asked to move troops through Belgium twice now and both times I have declined unfortunately I know that this will not last long and they will forcefully move their troops through. I have now made another secret defensive alliance with Great Britain. This means that if Germany were to force troops through Belgium they would be there to defend me. War has been declared and A-H has declared war on Serbia for killing the Archduke. Austria-Hungary has defeated Serbia. Belgium does still has one African Colony, the Belgian Congo. 

Portugal 1914

Portugal has been laying low and many countries are mobilizing. We have not said anything or talked to any other countries and have not been persuaded one way yet. We have decided to stay neutral for right now. I have a suspicion that the central powers are going to continue to fight and take over as much as they can however I plan to gain an alliance with GB and the Allies will return stronger and win. We plan to still remain quiet and eventually join the Allied Powers. I have no business being in war right now. I do think that alliances are being made by the central powers with some neutral countries and the allied are also making alliances with neutral countries. Portugal has two African Colonies, Angola and Mozambique.

Belgium 1915

The Lusitania has sunk! Bulgaria has joined with the central powers and Italy has joined with the allied powers both countries have chosen to mobilize. I do believe Germany is going to start a battle soon. A-H and Germany are attacking R3 of Russia. I believe Russia will be able to have alliances and come back and take over. Germany and A-H have now taken over R3 of Russia. France is going to move troops into Belgium to help defend my land from Germany who has been asking to move troops through my land. I think that with France’s troops defending me then Germany will think differently about going through Belgium. Italy has tried to move troops into Austria-Hungary and unfortunately was defeated. I do think that Austria-Hungary will declare war on Italy which is part of the Allied powers. Italy has gone to the Central powers. The French have moved 4000 troops into Belgium.

Portugal 1915

Portugal has not done anything yet we still have no reason to be in war yet. There have been different battles and the central powers have taken control. I have my suspicions that the allied powers are going to regain control. Germany and A-H have become really close alliances. Italy has now switched to the central powers which is okay because Italy has become very weak. There have not been any naval battles yet except for the Lusitania so I have an idea that it is going to happen soon from Germany. We are still remaining Neutral since nothing has come close to us yet. 

Belgium 1916

The French have moved their troops into Germany and were defeated which means I no longer have France’s troops to support me against Germany’s troops. I am planning on having Great Britain and France move more troops into Belgium. I have a feeling that Germany is going to go through Belgium anyway and I will unfortunately not have enough to defeat them. The central powers are starting to take over the leftover parts of Russia since they lost all their troops to Germany. 

Portugal 1916 

We have now mobilized, and have joined with the Allies. I am in an alliance with Great Britain. My plan is to have France’s navy move me into France to help support them. Germany is starting to become very strong and taking over many parts of the Allies’ countries.  The central powers are taking over the leftover Russian regions and I think that they will be victorious over there. 

Belgium 1917 

The US has been joined with the Allies and Germany is moving more troops into G1 which is right next to Belgium. I believe that Germany is going to try to force its way through Belgium. I have had France and Great Britain move troops into Belgium. I think that I will eventually get the US France and GB to move the rest of the troops. Germany is moving over 5000 troops through Belgium and Great Britain and France do not have enough troops to support me. The United States is trying to persuade them to help support Belgium. The United States has persuaded them to defend me and sadly Belgium has been defeated. My country is now part of the Central Powers. It was an extremely well fought battle and Germany lost the majority of their troops however they were still able to go through Belgium no matter how hard we fought. 

Portugal 1917 

Portugal has done nothing right now. Belgium was defeated in a very big battle against the central powers and all of the allied powers. I have allowed France to transport all my troops to defend the territory of France. Germany did defeat France and so unfortunately Portugal was defeated. My country has still not been taken over but I have zero troops to defeat me. I think the Central powers are going to take over the rest of the Allied countries but I think the Allies are going to move all their troops into GB and the US so that the Central powers can only move troops through their navy. 

Belgium 1918

I am trying to get the Allied powers to take back Belgium and France. The US and GB are the only countries with a decent amount of troops left. However, I don’t think that they will be successful considering that Germany is very strong right now. I think that even if the allies were to take back over France and Belgium the central powers are too strong and the Allies would be defeated. Austria-Hungary is moving more troops into Belgium because the Allies were successful in defeating the Central Powers in France F3. I think that the Central powers are moving through Belgium because they are eventually going to move them all into F1 and try to take over the rest of France. Although I think that the allies are weaker at this time I do think that if we go into a naval war we would be victorious. 

Portugal 1918 

Portugal is still part of the Allies, I had lost all my troops from the war in France but I now have 20 more troops there. There has been a war going on in France and in the sea and both times the Allies have been victorious. I plan to move my troops into France since I assume there will be a battle there soon. I don’t think that there will be much more from the allies since the german troops have too much power over us. This war has not done much to Portugal however it has done a lot of damage to my alliances if they do want to go to war my alliances will have all my troops available to them.
