Relive history, or redefine it. Take control of the Western Front with either the Allied Nations or Central Powers, controlling every aspect of the war effort. Oversee the grand strategy for your side, before entering the battlefield across the Western Front to lead your forces to victory.
Each country for the Allies comes with a special bonus that applies to all of their infantry companies.
Each of the nations that enter the war later will have a point on the event timeline that corresponds to the earliest those nations can enter the conflict. This point will have a percentage chance that they will enter the war. At that point, military units will become available.
While the allied nations are working to a common goal, they are not unified enough to allow for joint leadership of their troops. As such, some units from different nations will face a morale penalty when stacking together.
Unlike the Allied Nations, the Central Powers are a homogenous force fighting under the same flag for the same Generals. They share language, culture and goals for the war. As such, they do not suffer from any morale penalties when stacking troops in a region.
The Central Powers have access to Conscript Infantry units. These units, while less effective in battle, are still very capable of holding the line. Deployed correctly; they can provide the overwhelming numbers needed to gain a victory.
The Central Powers do not have any specific "National Arrival" events as only Germany is present on this front. However, there are multiple events that can occur increasing their available troop numbers.
