1914: Germany At War

HISTORICAL BACKGROUND
On 28 June 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and his wife were shot dead in Sarajevo, by Gavrilo Princip, member of the Black Hand, a political organization seeking for a merging of the Balkan area into a Greater Serbia or a Yugoslavia.

Austria-Hungary subsequently issued an ultimatum against Serbia. As the ultimatum was rejected, Austria-Hungary then declared war, marking the outbreak of the war.

While France and Russia immediately sided with Serbia, Germany joined the Austria-Hungary and started a surprise offensive in the west with the objective of quickly defeating the French, to then turn east and knock the Tzarist Russia out of the war.

1914: GERMANY AT WAR
is a medium/light war game covering the grand offensive launched by Germany against France in August 1914.

Although based on historical events and much research, the players can try to change the course of history in early 20th Century Europe. Can the Germans make their “War Plan” *work for a quick end to the war? And for the Allies, it’s not enough to just frustrate the Germans. Can they be more successful than they were historically and avoid four years of trench bloodshed? The answers are up to you!

The game is recommended for two or three players, but we are told many players enjoy it solitaire as well
. * (In the years prior to 1914, the great German envelopment manoeuvre was called simply the “War Plan.” It was only after the war that the term “Schlieffen Plan” was created!)
