    Lesser of Two Evils: Germany in a Draka World

    Lesser of Two Evils:
    Germany in a Draka World

    "They say that we are doomed to be nothing. They say that we are only a second rate power, doomed to fight for a distant third behind the continent-states. People of Germany, will you let them say these things to you? Will you let them spread these lies about the Fatherland? No! We will show them. In the end, it is our nation that shall rise above! It is Germany that shall span not one, but all of the continents!"
    --Adolf Hitler, 1932
    The following is an excerpt from Globe in Chaos: The Interbellum Years:
    . . . rise to power, Hitler began rearming Germany. He meant what he had said while a minority party, and while he was in power, he would not allow Germany to be simply a second-rate power. Interestingly, as he rose to power Germany was only a second-rate power, at best: along with Japan, France, and increasingly Britain, Germany was second rate to the so-called "continent-states" of the United States of America (North America) and the Domination of the Draka (Africa, some of Asia) (see Fig. 1). In terms of total land area, these two nations did indeed dominate the globe. . .

    Whoops: A _____ AAR

    I like the sound of it, lol.

    This is my fourth AAR, and I hope it will end better than my last (dead) one. It is based on a country I created in SM Stirling's Draka books (if you are unfamiliar with these books, here is a timeline. The mod that I use is Randallw's Domination of the Draka Mod.

    It will follow the basic style of "Dar al-Islam." It begins with either dialogue or a speech, with is followed by an excerpt from a Western-style history book.

    I hope you will enjoy.

    Sometimes I see alternative worlds...

    Would Germany be able to become a Great Power? Would Draka allow it? Would Darkwing Duck allow them to... erm... I think I got confused with the "D" and the "K" an all...

    How come World War I happened exactly the same even with the Draka?
    (I never read the books, so I wouldn't know)

    But good luck, they probably have massive IC and armies, and will be very difficult to defeat.

    Interesting to see how this works out in HOI2. Read the books on wikipedia, looked interesting although very forced. No way they could have lasted that long where they are and with their policies (I mean, annex the whole Ottoman empire and Bulgaria? No one is that arrogant or would allow that!).
    Hopefully you can resist the domination though

    From what I have read of the Draka, I would agree with you.... as I think majority of people would.

    I find it highly unlikely hta a county controlling those totally industrious areas of Africa and the Urals would be a superpower, more just a huge useless tract of worthless land.

    QFT. I read through the timeline provided. History went .

    Please return some sanity to the world. No matter how fcked up it is, it'll be better than this Draka mess.

    This looks really good!



    And the amount of resources Africa has is amazing. Its possible that an empire could conquer and industrialize Africa and get the benefits of its massive resources. Also the amount of oil the fictional Draka controls in itself would make it a World Power.

    So, what's up with Russia? Is it Russia or the SU? Is it a significant power?

    The game is a bit unbalanced, because Draka has cores on all its lands (They should only have them on Africa). And the USSR has no cores on Central Asia.

    The Bolsehevik revolution did succeed, HOWEVER, the USSR is much weaker in the Draka world.
