"Nicht durch Reden und Majoritätsbeschlüsse werden die großen Fragen der Zeit entschieden sondern durch Eisen und Blut." -- Otto von Bismarck
(Not by speeches and votes of the majority, are the great questions of the time decided, but by iron and blood.)
The goal of this AAR is to form Greater Germany quickly, and provide Germany a strong basis for future expansion.
In order to form Greater Germany, Prussia needs to:
-- sphere Bavaria
-- sphere Hanover
-- sphere Baden
-- sphere Saxony
-- sphere Wurttemburg
-- sphere Austria
-- sphere Denmark, or liberate Schleswig-Holstein
-- sphere Holstein
-- retain Prussia's starting sphere
-- liberate Alsace Lorraine from France
Additionally, Prussia may add Luxembourg to the mix by sphering them.
So the plan for the initial phase of the campaign is to
1) attack Austria on January 1, 1836 (with an Assert Hegemony CB)
2) sphere the required minor powers (Hanover, Denmark, Holstein, Luxembourg)
3) attack France after peace with Austria.
In January 1, 1836, Prussia begins influencing Denmark and Holstein, researching Muzzle Loading Rifles, allies with France and Russia, and declares war on Austria.
Austria has to be a priority. It interferes with the Prussian sphere in Germany, and must be eliminated as a threat.
