Germany 4 1913 WWI Simulation

Serbia has gained more territory during the Balkan wars, which is threatening Austro-Hungarian supremacy. This is terrible, as we have an alliance with Austria-Hungary. I’m not looking for war, but we might be pulled into one. Additionally, Russia and France have formed an alliance, no doubt against us. If things keep going down this path, the next few years are going to be very tough. 

Germany 4 1914 

This is war, and it’s about to get ugly. If we don’t hit the Russians hard, they might be our biggest threat. I want to move some troops into their territory, as well as some of Austria’s. They are our biggest ally, and if we want to win this war, we have to work together. I just hope Russia doesn’t send in more troops, because I don’t want to start this war with a loss. Actually, nevermind. No matter what happens, Russia will not get the last laugh. If they beat us, I’ll send more troops. I’ll keep sending troops until that territory is mine!

Germany 4 1915 

Bulgaria has joined the Central Powers. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous about their decision, so I’m glad they partnered with the right side. With their help, we might be able to protect the Ottoman Empire from the Russian’s. They might also help in taking over Serbia and Montenegro. I hope the Ottomans attack Egypt. It’d be an easy win for them and a way to boost troop morale. Additionally, it would get some troops away from Russia, in case they try something. I just hope they stay away from Libya.  I really want Italy to join us, but Libya is their territory and attacking them would throw any chance of that out the window. I don’t think I’ll attack anyone this year. It would be suicide to move deeper into Russia, and I don’t want to force Belgium to let us through. We’re kind of stuck right now. I want to do something with our Navy, but we’re surrounded by Allies. Luckily we have U-Boats, and I feel like sinking some ships. Speaking of which, our U-Boats sank a British ocean liner carrying 170 tons of war mution for Britain. While I don’t feel good about killing over 1,000 civilians, I’d rather it be them than us. I just hope that the United States doesn’t join this war. The last thing Germany needs is another country to worry about fighting. 

Germany 4 1916

We ended 1915 with a few losses. The Ottomans, Bulgarians, and Austrians were all defeated in various battles, Italy and Romania joined the Allies, our Navy was obliterated, and Serbia is stronger than ever. The Allies now have the momentum and I can feel my confidence slipping away. If 1916 doesn’t go well for us, we might as well surrender. I have a feeling Russia is going to attack the Ottomans. Their troops significantly outnumber them. If we lose the Ottomans, this war is over. However, if Russia does push the Ottoman Empire, that will move troops out of Russia and allow us to attack. Either way, the Russian’s are going down. 

Germany 4 1917

Just like I had predicted, Russia collapsed. The only sad part was that it was from a Civil War. I would have prefered to take them by force, but a win is a win so I can’t complain. Especially since now we only have to worry about the West. Before it felt like we were being sandwiched. Due to this, I think we can move back and keep France, Great Britain, and the United States in line. This year, there are only a few things I want to do. First, I want the Central Powers to take Romania. We’ve tried negotiating, but they haven’t budged and leave us no choice. After we take Romania, I want Serbia and Montenegro. It’d also be nice to take Italy but I think there’s a chance that they jump ship and join us, so it’s best to hold off for now. 

Germany 4 1918

The end is near, I can feel it. The Allies have been piling troops into Belgium, and I know they’re going to attack. The good news is that I think we can take them. After Belgium is cleared out, I want to send every last soldier we have into France. I know it’s probably pointless and the chances of us winning are slim, but I don’t care. I want the Alsace and Lorraine provinces back, no matter the cost. Regardless of what happens, the Central Powers have won this war. The remaining Ottomans and Austrians are taking back the Ottoman Empire and Montenegro as we speak. Additionally, Austria-Hungary is in a position to take Northern Italy. I can’t believe the Allies thought they could take us!
