My people...
Sons and daughters of Poland...
This much I vow.
The history of these days will be written in blood.
By crushing the armies of our enemy,
by seizing the weapons they thought to turn against us,
we were fighting for our very existence.
But if there are those who would deny us peace,
refuse us our rightful place in the world,
then... we will unleash such TERRIBLE VENGEANCE,
THAT GENERATIONS YET UNBORN,
WILL CRY OUT IN ANGUISH!!
The enemy may shatter our bodies... but they cannot break our spirit.
They cannot imagine what awaits them.
We will WIPE the invaders from our lands!
For they sweep over our lands like the sands of winter.
Never again will we bow before them.
Never again endure their oppression.
Never again endure their tyranny.
We will strike...
without warning
and without mercy.
Fighting as one hand, one heart, one soul.
We will SHATTER their dreams,
and HAUNT their nightmares.
Drenching our ancestors' grave with their blood!
And as our last breath tears at their lungs,
as we rise again from the ruins of our cities...
They will know... Poland... belongs to the Poles.


----------------------------------------
Hello everyone! I'll play as Poland and try to rebuild its glory in fascinating world of Kaiserreich mod.

Basic info:
1. This is my first AAR and I'm rather mediocre player so I may make mistakes, sorry for that.
2. Difficulty normal/normal.
3. Sorry for bad english.
4. My goal is to reclaim all lands important to polish people and secure their safety.
5. Comments much appreciated.

So here we go.
This is the mighty (almost) Polish Empire on January 1st, year 1936.


Our goverment.


And our army.



Starting IC, resources.



Fabryka Broni Radom is currently working on a new equipment for our great army.


Our new minister. IC+10%.


On April 1, Lithuanians nationalise. Soon they will convert to polish!


April 22, Galizia proposes a deal. She must be returned to fatherland one day so we need the best relations with them.


May 29, we have finished early infantry division and started basic machine tools.



To be continued...

Good Luck, nice idea restoring the Polish Empire in KR. You are planning to annex Lithuania and Galizien-Lodomerien in your empire, probably White Ruthenia as well??? And then?

Most intriguing... There are alot of options open to Poland in the first few years of KR, and if events are nice to them the country can get powerful very quickly.

Good luck to Wielkopolska!

Germany is constantly trying to influence us. They can try, but when the time comes right, they will suffer!


November 9 and 13, we are starting preparations for great war to come. (militias may seem weak but my earlier experience from USA game shows that they will be very useful)


January 12, year 1937, new tech researched and the new one started.



March 3rd will be remembered forever! A glorious day for our nation!

Becoming Austrian puppet may provide great opportunity in future war against German Alliance.

New Poland! (our IC have increased from 18 to 28!)

Great story! If Austria will join Catholic Alliance in the future, you'll have many allies to fight the Germans.

After reunification, Poles from Galicia are called to arms!
We need every man we can get!


We have also granted second tech slot.


March 9, typical Balkan day :)



Polish government announced neutrality in this conflict.
But in secret, we have send some resources for valuable blueprints.



Austria wants to bribe us and drag into bloodbath against our brothers Magyars and Czechs.
We helped them once in 1683 and they payed us in partitioning our country.
Let them rot in Vienna!


April 14, Hungary gets scary.


This is interesting opportunity to step in, help Austria and claim whole Slovakia (which will give me 14 IC).
Should we act? Or maybe the risk is too high?

Excellent!! Now that you have Austria on your side, you might stand a chance against Germany, though to be safe, should wait for the eventual Syndicalist alliance to come down on Detuschland.

As for the recent post, I say stab them in the back. If means getting more IC, then you gotta do what you gotta do. :)
