summer season 1914: a sad story customary to each historical past pupil. Bismarck’s fateful prediction of a few “damn idiot factor within the Balkans” comes real. Obedient to Schliefflen's ghost, gray-clad Imperial German columns march in the direction of the Belgian border, while Austrian artillery bombards Belgrade and the Germanic allies brace for an attack through France’s nice wish, because the Russian behemoth stirs within the East and slouches in the direction of Tannenberg and the Masurian Lakes. Then, impelled to honor a deal he didn't make, and knew not anything of until eventually Wilhelm's armies have been at the ultimate method of Liege, the younger Belgian King gives you Germany loose passage into France. Tens of hundreds of thousands people troop sail into the Atlantic, hoping the USA army with its new-fangled companies will sink adequate British, German, and Ottoman battleships to win via to Brest, from whence the AEF needs to hurry to the Marne if the Kaiser's legions are to be hurled again from the gates of Paris.

Reminded by means of accomplice specialists that “Slav” stocks a linguistic root with "slave," and encouraged by way of the Confederacy's emergence as a manageable version for commercial and armed forces improvement in keeping with human bondage, Germany and Austria-Hungary repair serfdom to the Eurasian hearyland. A horrified nice Britain, appalled on the Germanic Frankenstein's monster it has unleashed, needs to now flip to its former enemy the U.S., and make universal reason opposed to Berlin's pursuit of absolute weltmacht.
