The Greatest Germany
The Formation of the Pan-Germanic Union, 1836-1936
A Heart of Darkness AAR Using New Nations Mod
But Germany is just a multitude of small states. Many enemies stand in the way of unification, and each will need to be defeated for a Pan-Germanic Empire to even stand a chance. The most likely country to even attempt such a feat is Prussia; and it is here where we start our story.
Welcome to my new AAR. It's my first-ish. I have added an event that gives me cores on other "Germanic" provinces after the formation of Germany. This ties in with the story and makes the game more fluid. If I wanted world conquest, I'd add cores on everything! I even add infamy myself because gaining a core region adds none.
I also must add that Pan-Germanicism, a theme of this AAR, is an idea toyed with by the Nazis. I am of course not a Nazi!
OAQ (Occasionally asked questions)
There are broken tags ([HR] etc.) in your AAR
These are the result of the recent changes in the forum. Hopefully, these will be eventually fixed. For the time being, [HR] means there should have been a horizontal line there, and [SP] means that should have been superscript.
The colours here look out of place
Again, this is the result of forum changes and hopefully will be fixed soon.
There are loads of chapters and I don't have time to read all of them
Really, you should. Each chapter is quite important but if you really can't read all of them, I don't mind if you ask me or just skim them. Often reading the last paragraph will give you an idea.
The images are saying you're out of bandwidth
Please contact me (via PM) and I'll sort it out.
You've made a mistake here.
Again, feel free to drop me a message.
