That Other Germany, an Austrian Kaiserreich AAR

The Austria of 1936 was an unhappy place to dwell in. Although they came out victorious from the Great War, economically they were ruined; with soldiers returning to jobs which are no longer there. The pesky Hungarians have used the situation to gain semi-independence within the structure of the Dual Kingdom. Will this be the time for the Hapsburgs to reassert their domination over the empire they have amassed over Austrias rich history?

The Austria's first concern is the reconquest of the empire. The Croats, the Bosnians, Hungarians, Ukrainians and Czechs have grown fat and rich while Austria continues to suffer. Control of the Mediterranean Sea is also a prime goal of the Osterreich. For an empire without national prestige, even the slightest boost will do wonders to the morale of the Nation.


Thus we begin.

The map of the current Austro-Hungarian domains. The Kaiser is indignant at the size of Hungary compared to Austria, with its slowly growing population. Its suprising that it is able to even field an army, not to mention affording the casualties of campaigning.

The naval situation of the Osterreich is rather grim. Our current fleet is cripplingly outdated and cannot compete with any major power in Naval Supremacy. Currently, fleet deployment is restricted to the Medeterranean until a modern fleet is constructed.

Immediately, the Austrian Government petitioned the Deutsches Reich with technological aid from her and her allies. Their help will be greatly rewarded.

The current naval research program will mainly focus on Light Carrier developent along with escorts ships (Cruisers, Destroyers,etc). There are rumours of an Austrian Submarine arm, but talks have not left the drawing board.

Stay tuned :D

On February 27, preliminary talks of the Ausgleich began in Vienna. As usual, the minority states petittioned for further autonomy with the Empire. But the Kaiser, seeing the inevitable decay of Hapsburg (and therefore Austrian) power, demanded the Empire once again reunite with the Austrian state. Now time was right to prove to the world (and to Germany) that the Union would no longer be a third rate power on the Continent.

Many realized the logic in the Kaiser's argument, agreed to reunite under the Hapsburg banner. The Bosnians, along with the Ukrainians were brought back to the Empire.

Seeing the now firm will of the Kaiser, the Hungarian government declared its indepedence from the Dual Monarchy. The Kaiser immediately sent an ultimatum demanding total subjection the Throne, which was denied promptly. Immediately following, the Osterreich mobilized the armed forces for war. Chaos will once again descent upon the Balkans.

The frontlines as of 16:00 March 27 1937. Austrian troops begin their march into the abandoned city of Budapest, a major triumph for the Empire. German troops meanwhile continued their offensive in the Sudetenland, encountering little resistance from the Bohemian military.

On April 5th the Bohemian goverment petitioned the victorious Austrians for annexation into the Osterreich seeing the "loss of cultural identity and common sense with the Provincial government of Bohemia". Austria readily accepted.

In the midnight hours on May 3rd the Spring Offensive began. The Austrian High Command had high hopes that it will bring the civil war to a satisfying conclusion...in Austria's favor. Hungary will be the last renegade province to be subdued to Hapsburgian will.
ScreenHunter_08Jan191356.gif


In twenty days the army reaches the outskirts of Transylvania. Soon the capture of the last key province will be within our reach. On a more unfortunate note, the Hungarians managed to breakthrough into undefended Galicia. Ukrainian and Lithuanian troops are being deployed to deal with this threat.

Our garrison in Lemberg is defeated by a numerically superior Hungarian army. A minor setback for the Kaiser.
ScreenHunter_14Jan191405.gif


The civil war continued for a month and a half with minor territorial changes. On June 15 the Hungarian government formally surrendered and was annexed into the reborn Austrian empire.
ScreenHunter_24Jan191412.gif


With the recent reconstruction of the Osterreich, the High Command has decided to prepare an operation for the invasion of Italy. To legitimize the resurgent Austrians to the various dissatisfied minorities, and to secure our western border the Osterreich must control Rome.

Im playing Kaiserreich, the southern part is the Republic of Two Sicilies. It tried to scoop up some territory from the Federation but it failed miserably.

Kaiserreich? Is that some sort of fantasy scenario? Cause I noticed that you started in 36.. Maybe you can provide me with a link?

A Semi-Eventful year begins with a boost to my manpower. This will provide great canno....officer material, yes, lets go with that ;)
ScreenHunter_44Jan191732.gif


Building large amounts of garrisons, apparently the Romans dont like getting curbstomped.

Around the globe, events are not so cheery. The United states had declared war on the West Coast Federation. Seems like they hate Hollister as much as I do.

My Industrial program for this year. The transport is to garrison Sardinia.

My research for the year. As you will notice, im going to go for a Motorized/Tank army. Much easier to encircle your opponents.

Russia begins to flex its underused muscles. Finally things are getting interested.

Offensive Planning

On this day May 3rd of the year of our Lord, I have decreed it nessessary to plan an offensive operation to seize important oil resources for our now expanding military. The Name has been decided as Operation Glashaus

The Operation has been divided into three parts.

Operation Benzin involves the seizure of the Ploesti oilfields, Serbia is an afterthought since it guarantees the independence of Romania.
ScreenHunter_01Jan210853.gif


Operation Silberlöwe involves the capture of the Baku oilfields along with the Georgian Coast. I will need the forward bases in my future campaign against the Ottomans.
ScreenHunter_02Jan210855.gif


Operation Sandsturm involves the capture of the Egyptian coast, following that the "Liberation" of the Reichkommisariat Sudan. Both preludes to my Ottoman campaign. I will need a loyal country in Africa.
