    Ich will alles! Ich will es jetzt! A 1936 Germany Video AAR (VAAR)

    Creator's note

    This AAR will be unlike any other you have seen. It will have writing, historical input, and best of all, in game video of every single moment of the game as it is played out, so you are not left wondering what happened at any point. Buckle up, I assure you this will be one hell of a ride!


    December 31st, 1935
    Prologue



    Dreams of conquest and lebensraum have shaped the Fuhrer’s life and short rule (thus far) as leader of the German Volk (people). However, Herr Hitler has never had a shortage of dreams, rather, quite to the contrary, an astonishing surplus. As he continues to solidify his position as the center of the power vacuum leading Germany, these dreams only intensify as the ideas that were once unbeknownst to anyone but Hitler himself are becoming the beacon of hope for the German population devastated by the treaty of Versailles.

    In these trying times for Germany, Hitler knows that if he does not quench the country’s rabid unemployment his days in power will be numbered regardless of the force he employs. He quickly turned to the German President of the Reichsbank, Dr. Hjalmar Schacht to help him save the German Reichsmark, and find a solution to eliminate the economic woes of the country. Hitler knows that a country could not fight a war without a unified home front, and he also knows a recovering economy will be crucial to his ability to enhance his production of weapons of war.

    The fear of running out of industrial materials, due to the evident lack of sufficient production of these metals and rubbers at home was beginning to start to creep into Hitler’s mind. This fear often became additional fodder for his desire of conquest in the East to once and for all satisfy the thirst of the German industry for raw materials. Needless to say, Hitler knows he must bridge the gap between present day and eventual (hopeful) conquest of the Soviet Union by trading with his ideological enemy in the Communists with the goal of bolstering his own war effort.

    January 1st, 1936
    Meeting of the Cabinet, Old Reich Chancellery



    The anxiety of the cabinet members of the room has been gradually increasing as they wait for the entrance of the Fuhrer to discuss the daily agenda. As they talked amongst themselves, they quickly realized that none of them, not even Stellvertreter des Fuhrers himself, Rudolf Hess had even the slightest of inclinations as to what could have inspired Hitler to hold such an unprecedented midnight meeting.

    Like the meeting, the weather was equally unusual. An uncharacteristic period of warm weather and rain had been enveloping much of Germany since the days following Christmas. On the night of December 31st, a large thunderstorm was ripping through the city of Berlin, but nonetheless, the citizens were celebrating the new year and the change that they hoped it would bring to Germany. When the Fuhrer walked into the meeting, at 12:05 AM, one of the loudest claps of thunder of the night struck nearby, on cue with the entrance of Hitler, signifying the importance of the moment.

    “Gentleman” Hitler said, “I take you away from your families and festivities of the night for an important reason.” There was an unexpected pause, and as a minute passed, every member of the cabinet and his aides wanted to know why they had been called, but none had the guts to break the deafening silence.

    When Hitler finally spoke, he said one word, “Empire”. There was another long pause, as Hitler let this notion resonate and sink into each member of the cabinet. “In the last three years, we have maneuvered the country down the path of redemption, and now, it is time to take the next step, rearmament.”

    An unnamed cabinet member interjected “But mein Fuhrer”…

    Hitler simply talked right over him “SILENCE, we will rearm Germany, we will destroy the treaty of Versailles, we will restore the trampled pride of the German people. We will use cunning, deception, diplomacy, espionage, suppression, by God we will do whatever it takes. I do not see why man should not be just as cruel as nature. It is not truth that matters, but victory. Germany will be a great power, or not be at all.”

    “While misleading our persecutors, the wretched French and English, we will build an armed forces of the likes of which the world has never seen before. No branch will be neglected, and each will be instrumental in our reformation of the Greater Germany and denouncement of the damned Treaty of Versailles. I come to you today to inform you all, brace for change, and most of all, embrace that change. This is the year where we begin the revitalization of our once proud nation of Germany into not just a world power, but the world power. Let me assure you that makers of empires have fought for bigger things than crowns, and higher seats than thrones. This my friends, is our destiny.”

    December 25, 1937

    It is good to be back in my native Austria. One of my diplomatic dreams has been incorporating my native lands into my beloved Germany, and I am so happy that it has come into fruition so soon. We have been given the greatest Christmas present, Austria, I am overjoyed to spend Christmas day among my beloved Austrians. Over the last two years, Germany has made progress that even I had not foreseen. It is clear the the Western nations wish to avoid another world war, so be it, we too will give this outward appearance, for the sole purpose of diplomatically swallowing up territory. However, with every increasingly bold diplomatic maneuver, I am increasingly afraid of pushing Germany to war prematurely, but I must not give this outward appearance. The Germans need a strong leader, and who better than I to fit this role?

    I am also increasingly conflicted about where to allocate my limited production and leadership capacity among the three branches of the armed forces. The Kriegsmarine promises big guns, prestige, a way to challenge Britain. The Heer is always barking about needing new and advanced weapons, and lots of them. They claim that they will be doing the dirty work of any war and that they do not have an adequate number of divisions, both armored and infantry, to conduct a successful war against the western scum. My relations with the luftwaffe are strained, and it does not help that relations with Goring are on a constant decline. Nevertheless, the need for new planes is obvious in our modern war. Decisions, decisions...



    Hitler seen on Christmas, always at least partially focused on his beloved Germany even on a holiday.




    April 30, 1938

    Today is a day for great celebration, our first two aircraft carriers, KMS Graf Zeppelin, and KMS Peter Strasser have been launched in the port city of Lubeck. From now on, Apirl 30 will be known as Flugzeugträger Tag, or Aircraft Carrier Day. This will no doubt be looked back on as a glorious day in the history of the Thousand Year Reich in years to come. The fine naval engineers have truly constructed the most magnificent aircraft carriers the world has ever seen!



    The much anticipated launching of the Graf Zeppelin and curious observers.



    Hitler, shown here on May 1st, reading about the fantastic turnout for the launching of the new Aircraft Carriers.

    However, my heart is still heavy even on such a great day for Germany. The last two months have brought profound change in the political scene of the country, and I fear not all is for the better. I initially looked at von Ribbentrop as a natural choice for Foreign Minister as he strongly agreed with our plans for the expansion of Germany, but, unfortunately he is nowhere near as popular as von Neurath and has quite the polarizing effect on Western nations. I fear his sharp words will push Germany into a conflict far before it is ready and all of our hard work will be for naught.



    The New Man in Town, von Ribbentrop



    March 18, 1939

    Oh, how I feel I have gone too far, been too ambitious. With the United Kingdom's entry into the war, this surely is a nightmare scenario. Many of my generals warned me about invading Czechoslovakia and the conflict that may erupt, but I had been ensured by von Ribbentrop that this would not be the case. Very well, let him finish what he started. I fear also that Germany is unprepared for the ensuing conflict, as the amount of infantry required is simply far beyond our current amounts. We will have to increase production in this department, posthaste. I have hearby ordered the Kriegsmarine to not engage any offensive operations until we are better secured on the land. I do not want to further spark the desire of the French or British to invade, as they do not know how unprepared we are.

    Now, I am sure many sleepless nights will be spent planning, although I fear that this could be a bad blow for Germany and destructive for my public image as it is seen as my first foreign policy defeat. So be it, I must remember however, that whoever lights the torch of war in Europe can wish for nothing but chaos. Maybe a small propaganda victory can be scored by portraying the bloody English as the aggressor, which could possibly delay American entry in the war as it will make them question English motives.



    Hitler seen here planning his strategy after the UK entry into the war.




    April 7, 1939

    I have been sleep deprived over the last few months, the war effort surely has consumed most of my waking hours. However, I am thrilled to see the successes on the Czechoslovakian and Polish fronts. Today, I am off to the city of Danzig for the city's official repatriation into the Reich. By securing Danzig, we now have a steady supply route into our Eastern Prussian holdings without passing into the Baltic Sea. I have already sent ahead my Security, and Propaganda minister Goebbels to make the crowd appear very supportive to the Fatherland and his efforts.

    P.S. With any luck next year, I'll be parading in Paris.



    Hitler on the way to Danzig, being chauffeured, of course!



    April 28, 1939

    The vile Bolshevik scum have declared war on us at a most inopportune hour. We have far too few troops guarding against far too many foes. I dearly hoped to avoid a two front war, as this repetition of the previous war. I now put the faith in the bravery and quality of the German troops as it is my only remaining advantage. The Kriegsmarine will have to remain docked to conserve fuel for the land units as it is unknown how long it will be before we can secure a new source. I fear the war is lost, but we must trudge on. The only way to get through hell is to keep on going, right on the backs of our shiny new Panzer IV tanks. This new war calls for total war, absolute destruction, and the only way to persevere will be through the blood, sweat, and tears, of the mighty German army.



    New Model Panzer IV seen conducting total war in Eastern Poland.



    August 29, 1940

    Over the last year and a half, the fierce fighting has demanded every ounce of my attention, so much so that I have not had the time to sit down and reflect. After the news of the liquidation of the Soviet pocket on the outskirts of Kursk and Kharkov, I decided that I would make some public appearances to boost morale and trumpet our military might. I am extremely happy with how our armored units have performed thus far and I decided to take a look at a local Berlin tank destroyer yard.



    Hitler inspecting a brand new Hetzer Tank Destroyer

    In other news, I took some time to visit Paris with my friend and Minister of Architecture Albert Speer. He has truly done a wonderful job with the magnificent monuments to the Fatherland's honor in Berlin so I rewarded him with a trip to Paris along with myself. We got to discussing plans the home front of the war and I realized what great insight he had to maximize our production capacity. I thus decided to promote him to Deputy Armaments Minister with the potential to one day replace Hjalmar Schacht.

    I also have begun to think about my plans for a greater meeting space in Berlin. I had Speer draw up some plans for a modest meeting hall...

    Yes I can already see from what I have filmed that this will be significantly more awesome from a viewer's standpoint!

    Nice videos, very interesting indeed. I agree on the fact that you see far too little on the written AARS, you always seem to miss some pieces of the puzzle when reading it. For example: you don't always see their tech choices and how they resolve with the resource problem when you build so many capital ships.

    I m also curious what you think of the Battleship priority for the navy instead of the carrier priority? The big flaw I think it has is with the big oceans, but the advantage is that it can support your much more troops by using shore bombardment. Although I m not sure how effictive Shore bomb is for the German player

    Also: What do you think of the mod you re playing, does it add much to the game for you? One of the mods I ve been following since the beginning is DiDay's I.C.E. : Iron Cross Edition , I wonder why I would not just use that mod instead of "Hearts of Iron 3 : Dies Irae Götterdämmerung"




    I also saw that you forgot to choose your victory conditions, or is that just something we didn't see on the video?

    To answer your questions:

    -As far as battleship priority, I don't have one, I just wanted to build a few for flavour, but i have a bigger interest in carriers.
    -As far as mods, DI:G just happens to be ftm compatible, and the fellows working the I.C.E. mod have not cranked out the ftm compatible version yet, I also could have chosen August storm, which is also ftm compatible and a great mod.
    -As far as victory conditions, i don't play to fulfill victory conditions set by paradox, I just play to become the most powerful beyond competition, in the factories, classrooms, land, air, and the sea.

    I would really like to hear what you think about various game/mod elements and typical strategies used by the players when playing Germany. If we can see what you are doing, why not make some more comments about these things?

    I have played through more of the game than is shown here just releasing videos slow. I will make comments (memoirs of the fuhrer section) when it gets more interesting than just the build up. If you guys want something else i can add it but i am just worried i will spoil what will happen later on, because its really pretty intriguing. Also do you feel that I have done an insufficient job of explaining some things in the let's play segments?

    Personally, I would like to hear more about your build-up and diplomatic strategies. I know that you are building the navy early because ship construction is a lengthy process, but how many panzer divs do you aim to form? How many infantry divs do you want to have? Will you use motorised divs and if yes, what will be their composition and why do you think it will be effective? Do you want to convince Spain to join the Axis or maybe do you plan to invade them? What are your plans for Scandinavia?

    You get the idea.

    Ok I will answer these questions to the best of my ability when i release today's video.

    P.S. I am not flaking on your AAR, I have been talking to the heads of the IJN, and am just trying to figure out what exactly needs to be said
