Progress of the war


Nort German federation sensing the weakness of France and their low army tech decided that it was right time to invade and grab Alsace-Lorraine, instantly occupying their claims. French army was caught off guard and still not fully mobilized. To stop further German invasion brave France general Forey decided to take a fight at Nancy 100 French brigades encountered 140 German brigades, battle began well for France as their artillery was able to rip through Deutsch front lines. Soon enough Germany got their side of the front reinforced by 300 000 man making it 140 vs 190 brigades battle. Sensing that his armies were being overrun French general ordered a retreat. Germany has won the first big battle of the war, however not without huge losses. For each French solider Germany lost 4.

Meanwhile on the South front Austrians were held by combined forces of Switzerland and Sardinia Piedmont not allowing them to backstab North front. Reinforced by French armies western allies tried to break through Austrian lines but were unable to and suffered bitter defeat.

Due to losses on the south front France felt urge to beat Germans before Austrians can invade, first attempt to break through German lines was a failure with equal losses on both side. Feeling confident after initial victories German forces started occupying Alsace-Lorraine, Nancy and Verdun, giving enough time for French forces to reorganize. France now forced 2 battles, one at Verdun led by famous Patrice Forey, and one at Nancy which was a distraction for German troops. Meanwhile French navy played it's role sneaking to the coast of Germany and transporting some 120k troops that sized Berlin!

By this time Sardinia an Switzerland, although taking heavy losses were able to hold Austrian forces, while Serbia and Two Sicilies rip through Austrian territories in Balkans surrounding Austrian troops and heading for Vienna, soon enough Austria was begging for peace.

Battle of Nancy was finished yet again in German victory as French troops retreated taking some serious losses, however it was now too late for Germany to reinforce battle of Verdun where French destroyed 70k German troops. Although Germany was able to reclaim Berlin they were now in huge trouble in western front, realizing that they can't fight any battles in France they retreated to Germany. At this point it was clear that Austria was out of the war and it was just a matter of time when combined allied forces would reach Germany.

Peace treaty was agreed, with Two Sicilies humiliating North German Federation and Austria having to forfeit Bosnia and Vojvodina to Serbia which was in French sphere.

What do you think NGF could have done to beat you in this war, on the western front?

I think they needed to utilize their troops in the beginning they had more troops than France. If they reinforced Austrian front I'm not sure we would be able to hold because I'd have to fight on much wider front than.

Perhaps they could have occupied Alsace-Lorraine and hold the line there while they sent troops to knock Siciliy and Serbia out of the war.
