A Magyar Királyság újjászületése* - a Hungarian AAR
As a consequence of WW I, after the Treaty of Trianon, Hungary lost approximately 2/3 of its population and territory. For the vast majority of non-Hungarian nationalities the treaty was considered the end of Austro-Hungarian rule and a historical chance to form their own states by acquiring independence. But not for ethnic Hungarians: losing the Great War and the economical crisis caused general desperation and low morale both for those remained inside and the millions stuck outside the new borders.
After WW I an alliance was formed among Czechoslovakia, Romania and Yugoslavia, backed by France, to secure the new borders. Hungary's foreign policy drifted towards Italy and Germany.
Patch 1.3a, no mods, Normal level, Normal Aggression. The campaign starts in 1936.
The primary objective is to liberate the Hungarians living in the newly founded surrounding countries by getting back the provinces that have a significant amount of population of Hungarian nationality – these are more-or-less marked as “national provinces” in HOI2.
The secondary objective is to make Hungary a considerable power of Central-East Europe.
The third objective is to acquire a few ports on the Adriatic and/or Black Sea and build a small fleet.
