Carefully Applied Force: A Prussian AAR
Prussia takes careful steps to cement her power over Germany and the world. However, the Kingdom soon finds that other powers are not so happy with her doing so. She will have to tread either carefully or with full force to push her way to the front. It seems she is more likely to do a bit of both; a tactic which possibly might end in disaster.

"I'm sorry, you're not the only one..."
A young Ukrainian Conscript, fighting Chechnya, is unfortunately sent back in time... to 1850. He finds himself in Chechnya where a Russian Army, from 1850, is fighting a desperate campaign against armies from all over time. Linking up with this army, he tries to find his way back to the 1980's while also trying to stay alive, along with the friends he meets.
The Rocky Road Northwards: The Story of Italy at War
Italy is a young nation, compared at least to the old powers of Britain, France and Russia. Created in 1860 out of semi-revolution, the young Kingdom has always been at odds with the older nations. She has, slowly, built up her Colonial and European influence, while mustering a large army and a powerful navy. When war set Europe aflame in 1914, Italy sat on the side lines, waiting to see a peak time to take on the withering Hapsburg Empire, of which she so despised. Although agreements with the British and French were made, Italy took on the Central Powers alone, facing destruction at the hands of the Austrians and Germans, and the displeasure of the Entente Powers. Can the sons of Garibaldi bring the Kingdom above the situation and win the day, or will the older nations destroy Italy while she is so young and vibrant. There is no question, however, that Italy must fight to secure a high place in the Circle of European Powers, of which she is such a newcomer.

Never Completed AARs:
Welfare of the Cantons: A Swiss AAR
Switzerland is a beacon of democracy in the centre of a conservative Europe, but can she keep herself internally centered and not have to rely on Europe to keep her independence, such a fragile structure, afloat. Short and sweet, Switzerland proved too quiet to make an entertaining AAR, but I gave it my best shot and provided a fun few updates. If you have a little time drop by and have a read of its 4 pages.
This AAR follows the story of several soldiers, war correspondents, sailors and politcians all involved with the Crimean War. They must defend their country from foreign aggression and come out doing the right thing. That isn't always so easy. This follows the historical account of how the Crimean War fanned out, though this has never before be narrated, so this was a first. It was a casualty of writers block, but was some of the finest writing I ever produced, in my opinion. Well worth a look.
The Triumph of Evil: Spain 1808-1945
My personal favourite project of my AAR career. This AAR charts the fall of the Spanish Empire and the decent through to the Spanish Civil War in 1936. It never got finished, to my eternal regret, but saw the final stage in the development of my unforgettable history-book style that came to fruition after the completion of Carefully Applied Force. Were I ever to get around to writing that actual history book I want to, this is what it would look like.
