Deo Vindice: A CSA AAR
Hello and welcome to my new AAR. This will actually be my first HoI2 AAR (though not I hope the last), so it is a little experimental. I'm hoping it will work out.
Deo Vindice is played using "The Southern Road to War" Mod by CSA Badass, so all credit to him for coming up with this fine mod and I urge you try it out. In a nutshell it is the standard 1936 scenario with the addition of a surviving Confederate States of America currently led by President Huey Long. I will go into the history of the CSA from the American Civil War to the 30's in much more detail shortly but for the moment it is enough to say that the CSA is isolationist, democratic (if conservative), with reasonable relations with the United States and good relations with Britain. Naturally any or all of that may change as the AAR goes on but that is the situation at the moment.
I will try and make this a cross between the history book and narrative styles, with maybe a little bit more emphamis on the former. Still I'll guess we'll see - like I said I'm new to HoI2 AARs!
A disclaimer: The contents of this AAR - for instance the use of Confederate flags do not reflect my own political opinions or views of the subject any more than were I to play Germany or the Soviet Union. I chose a CSA AAR partially because I found the idea very interesting and partially because a fictional country gives me more freedom - though I will certainly try and keep things realistic!
Well I hope you'll stick around.
