Part 1: Introduction
Over the last 17 years, Byzantium has broken free from and destroyed the Ottoman Empire, liberating the Balkans from muslim rule. But in 1853 AD, France declared war to try to stop Byzantine expansion. The plan backfires, France didn´t know about the newly signed Russo-Romano-German Alliance and World War One has started. In addition, shortly after the war started, Austria saw its chance for territorial expansion and declared war on France, though not on the side of Byzantium but its own side.
Now a year later, almost half of France is under siege, mostly by Byzantium and its balkan minions. Will France be able to turn this aroud or shall the mighty empire of Napoleon fall less then 50 years after its creation?
