WWI German Victory - Territorial Gains by Lehnaru WWI German Victory - Territorial Gains by Lehnaru
An alternate history scenario featuring a German victory in the First World War. I'm not sure about the exact story behind it and I can't detail a point of divergence, but I have a vague idea of the situation. Austria-Hungary collapsed at the end of the war and Germany annexed Austria and the Czech lands (the latter forming an autonomous Czech Republic consisting of the provinces of Bohemia and Moravia with the capital in Prague). The Habsburgs still rule the (mostly) intact Kingdom of Hungary and Croatia (with Dalmatia and Bosnia), while Galicia has gone to a revived Kingdom of Poland and Bukovina (along with Bessarabia) to Romania.

Germany has also annexed Luxemburg, Lichtenstein, and a slice of German-speaking Hungary equivalent to the Burgenland, including Ödenburg. To avoid further French revanchism and as a symbol of good faith, Germany has generally left western Europe alone, avoiding the annexation of any Belgian (perhaps Germany didn't even invade through Belgium, leaving Britain neutral or even allied to the Reich) or French territories, though it has revised the border with Switzerland, annexing most of the canton of Schaffhausen surrounding Büsingen.

I think its more likely that they would've annexed Belgium than Austria.

Germany taking parts of neutral Switzerland? Annexing Paris is more likely. What would be the process of this???

No annexations of Arelerland and Longwy - fine, but no expansion in the East? Only if the war is a draw... Otherwise the Junkers would've moved the border easterds to the Warthe (and the Memel, up to Hrodna).
I find it highly unlikely Germany would want to strengthen Poland by giving them Galicia. This is a Prussian ruled Germany, and they're very anti-Polish.

I'm not sure, like I said I only have a vague idea of the situation; this is just my ideal map of Germany and my ideal timeframe. Thanks for the input, I'll definitely take it into consideration with my realistic WWI German victory map that I'm working on now! :)

"ideal map of Germany" - Arelerland was German-speaking back then, just in case you didn't know :).
And Bratislava was German-majority too, like Burgenland.

Yummy! :D Clicked on your profile but there's no subscribe button on deviantart :/

So, what's the scenario? Britain didn't interfere? "Schlieffen" worked? Or the Spring offensive? Perhaps the point of divergence was earlier (e.g. Belgian Revolution)?

I was under the impression that Bratislava was 40% German, 40% Hungarian, and 20% Slovak. It's a very important Hungarian city historically anyway, and I've always entertained the idea that the Germans and Hungarians would be allies. I knew about Arelerland, but I just didn't bother including it. Like I said, I'm still working on the scenario so I'm not sure what went down. It's a difficult one, given the complexity of the situation. :P

Bratislava was always a German inhabited city, only in the late 19th century did the Magyars (almost) catch up (magyarization). Germans and Hungarians allies? You took Burgenland including Sopron so you can kiss that alliance goodbye. It took Trianon for the Hungarians to turn a blind eye (sort of) to that, but if there was Trianon, Germany wouldn't have Czechia.

Your new map, is it going to be of just Germany but the wider area too? Like Austria-Hungary, Poland, Ukraine,...?

Considering the Germans would be granting independence, Dalmatia, Bosnia, and an alliance to the Hungarians in return for Burgenland... :P
