1917 - The Russian Revolution starts, the front crumbles in the east.
1918 - The treaty of Brest-Litovsk end hostilities in the east. The Germans launch the Spring Offensive in the west and reach Paris. The French army is plagued by mutinies, and with revolution on their doorstep, the French government rushes to get a favorable armistice. The Germans occupy everything to the east of the Meuse, including the riverbanks to the west of the Meuse. All German colonies are awarded to France, Britain and Japan. The war has officially ended.
1919 - The treaty of Berlin finalises the borders in the east with the Soviet Union. Roughly all territory gained by Prussia in the Third partition of Poland is annexed to Prussia as the provinces of Lodz and Southeast Prussia. The United Baltic Duchy is made a member of the German Empire. Lithuania, Finland and Ukraine are established as independent states.
1920 - All French and Belgian territory east of the Meuse is annexed to Germany in the final peace treaty with France. The Belgian territories and a small part of former French territory is annexed to Prussia as the province of the Ardennes, the rest goes to the Imperial Land of Alsace-Lorraine.
1923 - All German troops leave French and Belgian territory. Belgium elects anti-German parties.
1924 - Civil unrest in Belgium. The German army moves in. The rest of Belgium is annexed to Prussia as the province of Flanders. The Belgian Congo is split between France and Britain.
Due to no unrestricted submarine warfare and subsequently no American entry in the war, the Central Powers stand victorious. Just a quick scenario for Map of the Fortnight on AH.com.
I like the addition of Belgium, that prevents ww1
I like it.....but why is Belgium part of Prussia but not the Netherlands? Holland is quite a bit closer to Prussia/Germany culturally than Belgium is.....I'd imagine that Holland would be annexed before Belgium in most cases, if either one is at all. Still a good map, though.
Great map, there's definitely no independent Poland in this timeline?, just odd since I have some old banknotes/notengeld issued jointly by Austria/Germany for Konigreich Polen from before the end of the war, apparently there was a policy to make a Polish state of some sort.
Great job again Blomma. You never fail to impress.
What is your next project going to involve by any chance? Maybe you can make a foray into the Middle East?
If i see this, i always heare my Bavarian Friends in my Mind saying: "Es saupreissn .. "
but nevermind. Great work. Maybe really a lot of damage could have prevented, if this war endet somehow else.
Excellent map. I wish it were true.
So it seems that the Central Powers were far more successful, especially since Austria-Hungary is still intact too.
For a MotF map, this is just beautiful. Great work, as always. Deutschland über alles!
