    The Great War was won by the east - a Russian (not Soviet) AAR

    In 1914, after the assassination of the heir of the Austro-Hungarian empire, the greatest conflict ever known in history began. The alliance of Germany, Bulgaria, Austra and the Ottomans stood alone against almost the entire rest of the world. But the Germans succeeded with their "Schlieffen-plan", and quickly captured Paris and forced the French to surrender. Now with Germans on the other side of the channel and the Hochsee Flotte approaching, the British Empire who had lost most of their army in France and lacking the coastal protection to stand up against the armies of the Kaiserreich surrendered to the Germans, hoping that they would get mild treatment from the soon-to-come peace treaty. this caused great dissent within the British Commonwealth, and in Canada the nation made revolt with the support of the United States and the two north American nations made a defence pact and started isolating themselves from Europe. The Central Powers may had won a great victory, but the war was not over. The Austrians hadn't managed to push the Italian armies back, and in the east the biggest nation on the earth was pushing forward. Russia had not been defeated.
    The internal situation in Russia was chaotic, and the Tsar realized his only way of saving Russia from total collapse was to win. Neither Austria nor the Turks could stop the armies from the east, and the German soldiers from the western front never managed to reach the eastern one before the Russians had captured Berlin.
    The result of this Great War was chaotic. With all of the great European powers in ruins after the war, only Russia could dictate the future of the continent.



    Some parts of the treaty following the war;

    * The dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Austria was to became an independent nation but had to cede territory to Italy, Russia and the newly created states.

    * Bulgaria, Romania as well as the newly-formed states Hungary and Bohemia-Moravia was to be moved into the Russian sphere of influence.

    * The Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes was created as an ally of Russia.

    * Germany was to cede all of their colonies to Great Britain and France.

    * The Ottoman capital of Constantinople was to become a Russian protectorate, Tsargrad, to ensure Russian safety in the black sea.

    * Iraq and the Suez channel was moved into the Russian sphere of influence.

    * Territorial secessions to various nations (such as most of Prussian Poland to Russia)

    In the wake of the Great War, Russia became the worlds leading nation. European industry and resources was transported to Russia, and democratic reforms were made to please the population. Russia had more power than it ever could've dreamt of. The old Tsar, Nikolaj II, abdicated as he felt his rule was over and to mark that Russia had entered a new age. After a brief power struggle the Tsars youngest daughter, Anastasia, became Tsaritsa of all the Russias. By now, Russia was a democratic state and the Tsar/itsa only held ceremonial powers, whilst the head of the government was chosen democratically.

    But the situation in the rest of the world was not as well as in Russia. In Italy, a nation who felt that they had been cheated on their gains in the Great War, gaining only Südtirol and Istria, which they felt was nothing compared to the amount of Italians that had died, paved the way for the nationalistic leader Mussolini and his "fascists" to grab power shortly after the war. When the situation in the British Commonwealth was unsure, he ordered Italian soldiers to invade British Malta and Gibraltar, causing great tensions between the two nations.



    Inspired by these actions, the Austrian-born German man Adolf Hitler seized power in the young German democracy. He had fused Mussolinis nationalistic ideology with racism and hatred, and he then proclaimed a "Greater German Reich", which he himself would be emperor of. He proclaimed himself as Kaiser Adolfus I.



    In 1936, the situation was getting tense. In Russia, the Polish and Finnish population of the empires crave for independence increased even more, and the Germans had started moving, first by occupying the demilitarized province Königsberg in Prussia.



    In Russia, a Georgian Priest by the name of Josef Jughashvili had been elected head of the government. This odd little man would prove to be invaluable for Russia in the near future...



    And at the same time, the Japanese continued their brutal expansion in the east, after conquering the German pacific islands and Manchuria. Russia had not forgotten how their last war against the Japanese had resulted, and feared that the rising Sun would once again turn its attention to the north...

    Central Europe in 1936. Despite pressure Germany still occupies eastern Belgium which has severely damage German relations with the west.


    In the middle east, the easternmost parts of the Ottoman empire all the way down to Kuwait was moved into the Russian sphere of influence, as well as the Suez channel. Former Ottoman capital of Constantinople is now a Russian protectorate, Tsargrad. The Ottomans still hold a deep grudge against Russia, and skirmishes between the two powers in Caucasia is not something rare.



    In the far-east, the Kuomintang government controls most of mainland China, whilst the rest is controlled by communist rebels and warlords. Mongolia and Sinkiang are both under Russian control. The situation in China is tense, with a civil war raging on and the Japanese threat growing. Everyone is waiting for Chiang Kai-Shek to solve all of this.



    And he does so by signing a peace with the communists, as well as declaring an alliance between all Chinese states against the looming Japanese threat. Sinkiang is included in this coalition, creating a delicate situation between Russia and China.



    Not having forgotten the loss against the Japanese in 1905, Russia announces it's support for the Chinese coalition and signs a defensive-pact with them. Will Japan dare attack the bear once again?

    The situation is unsure in the east, and in west the aggression is growing.



    The fascists avenge the loss in Adwa by forcefully annexing Ethiopia. Italian relations with the western democracies is damaged.



    In Spain, the new governments leftist policies and attacks on church priority result in a full-scale civil war with a Nationalist faction supported by the army turning on the government.



    The great powers of the world, including Russia, agrees not to involve themselves in the war. Italy breaks this agreement and sends help to the Nationalists, isolating them further from democracy.



    The situation for Russia is unsure. There is a big fear for a new war, with the Japanese and Germans rapidly rearming. Domestic turmoil is also reaching a boiling point, with the Finnish and Polish people strongly demanding release from the empire, but such an act would damage the Russian industry which is strongly occupied with rearming. How will Jughashvili solve all of these problems... ?

    The way all great empires rid themselves of problems. Export them somewhere else. British have Australia, Russians have Siberia.

    This is an awesome premise, is it based on a mod? If so, which one? If not, can I get a savegame from the start?

    Oh, thank you! I did as a sort of mini-mod by myself. I can upload it, it's easy to activate with JGSME.

    Also, update coming one of these days.

    Would be great if you could upload it. I just got new computer - SSD, GTX580, 12Gb of RAM - just perfect for playing with 2D sprites!

    Looking forward to the update, keep 'em comping.

    The second Sino-Japanese war and the second Russo-Japanese war



    The Japanese declaration of war came much faster than expected. The Russian leaders was not sure about the Chinese preparation, but Russian one was low. Armies on the Manchurian and Mongolian border were strong enough to withhold the stationed Japanese armies, but not good enough to attack. The coast was protected by a weak, newly-assigned mix of garrison and militia. As long as Japan could be kept in place, a rapid deployment of troops could mean victory.



    Chinese are fighting bravely, but after one month Beijing falls.



    The only one of Russian offensives that would actually work, but only to be repelled a few weeks later.



    2 months into the war, and the Japanese was still only in the bordering provinces of northern China. This is going pretty we-,



    Crap.



    Craaap.
