Bleu, Blanc et Rouge: A History of France in Three Colors
Welcome to Bleu, Blanc et Rouge, A History of France in Three Colors!
This AAR will be a History Book AAR about France between 1836 and 1936. There is, however, the slight twist that each chapter is taken from an in-world history book written at the end of the period described. That means that you can look forward to unreliable narrators trying to make their regime look good and discredit their predecessors. As a consequence, I'd like to anticipate that I don't necessarily agree with the arguments that the "authors" will make but that each of them has their own agenda that will filter into their view of (to them) recent history.
I've also decided to include a limited number of historical characters which are either royals or those included in the Prologue. Every other French character that appears will, instead, be someone I created semi-randomly as the story progressed.
I used the HPM Mod and, as the tense suggests, I've already finished playing and am now getting around to putting it all into text. While playing, I did not have a particular goal in mind but rather was curious to see where the game took me and what interesting stories could develop while aiming for French success.
Lastly, this is my first AAR, so I hope that I'll get better over time and that it'll be a fun read for all of you!
