Greetings comrades and enemies of the revolution! I have been thinking of making another AAR for a while, and have flirted with a few ideas. First I wanted to make a Austria-Hungary one, but I quickly lost interest. Then I flirted with the idea of a West-German NWO one, but I found the mod somewhat lacking. Now I wanted to make a German AAR with the Kaiser reinstated, and then I got another idea. What about the USSR? The story of USSR is fascinating and I will take it as a learning experience to weave this story of some sort of re-enactment of Leninist USSR, especially as from my observertations Trotskyism, whatever that is, is a pecurious -ism in communist and radical socialist circles. Some see it as reviosionism, others see it is as democratic socialism and others again just an extension of the terror of Lenin and Stalin. But I digress, we'll see how this AAR develop and if Trotsky would be any better than Stalin or worse - or rather what I decide and how the game play out
Now I will lay out a few things, goals, rules etc.
-Let Trotsky take power.
-Spread communism to as large parts of Europe as possible, however I won't be doing this as Stalin. For example when Trotsky assume power I might be influencing Romania to make them commie, but I won't do it as Stalin.
-Make France, UK or USA communist. France can be made commie through ideological boosting, but UK (and her Dominions and Puppets) and USA can only be made commie through war.
-Win WW2? And if so, puppet Germany.
Other things: I will play it on alternative history, as if I let Trotsky assume power then the AI should be able to do some shit too. Hopefully one of the other nations will embrace the glorious enligtenment of socialism!
Other than that welcome and I hope you will all enjoy it. And don't let this be a shitstorm over ideology (but if you are knowledgeble about this topic, please don't hesitate to post stuff here or PM me), it is just for fun and I hope you too will have fun to see what happen! And to just make it clear, I have never played as USSR before, so we will see what happen and how I can fare against Hitler and his buds after I recover from a civil war, and perhaps I will even launch the Great Purge just before Trotsky return to make it even more difficult?
Time will tell, will Trotsky (really me) truly make the USSR a socialist state and usher the world into a new era, will it be forgotten under the boots of the Fascist warmachine or will it just be another Stalinist era under a different label? Only time will tell, and I hope you all will join me in finding it out!
