Central Powers Stronk! by Undevicesimus Central Powers Stronk! by Undevicesimus
The Central Powers (German: Mittelmächte, Hungarian: Központi hatalmak, Turkish: İttifak Devletleri, Bağlaşma Devletleri, Bulgarian: Централни сили, Tsentralni sili) were one of the two alliances during the First World War (1914 – 1918), consisting of the German Empire, Austria-Hungary, the Ottoman Empire and Bulgaria. The alliance was previously known as the Triple Alliance of Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy, which was formed in 1882 to oppose the Triple Entente of the UK, France and Russia.

When Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia (28 July 1914), Germany at once supported her ally whereas Italy refused to join the war, reasoning that the Triple Alliance was supposed to be purely defensive. Italy ultimately switched sides to the Triple Entente in 1915 by declaring war on Austria-Hungary. In October 1914, the Ottoman Empire openly joined Germany and Austria-Hungary, both by now at war with the Triple Entente. This basically formed a ‘new’ alliance: the Central Powers of Germany, Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire. One year later, the Kingdom of Bulgaria joined.


Notes:
+ Germanyball is the biggest because Germany was by far the strongest member of the alliance.
+ Austria-Hungary became militarily dependent on Germany as the war progressed, becoming a de facto military vassal.
+ The Ottoman Empire had been in decline for over a century.
+ Despite being the smallest member of the four Central Powers, the Kingdom of Bulgaria was the only one to survive the defeat of 1918.
+ The German Empire, Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire all ceased to exist shortly after the war.

The coats of arms of Austro-Hungary are supposed to be eye patches.

But it's a whole lot funny that way, especially with Austro-Hungary trying to do his best to rule(blindly). Oh yeah, did I mention he has split personality as result?

Gayet açik ama ayni zamandada osmanliyi yöneten elit kesimdede epeyce yozlasan sadrazamlar ve vezirler vardi; onlarda isbirligi yaptilar maalesef

Masonluğun gayet yaygın olduğu bir zamandan bahsediyoruz, elbette yapacaklar.
Devlet ve halkı, kadın ve para (farz-ı misal) için satan hıyarlar yüzünden düştü koca imparatorluk.

Dogru. Hiç yok olmadi masonluk ve benzeri örgütler.
Masonluk simdide var zaten; sadece reforme oldu; modern devre uyum sagladi.
Illuminati, skull & bones gibi gizli klüpler...

Zaten en kötü tarafida o; bir de o hiyarlar yüksek mevkilerde olunca, en kötüsü oluyor tabii.

The Reichstangle is the resurrected German Empire. This one is the living German Empire.

No, the Reichstngle represented the German Empire during WW1, and will represent the 4th Reich.

A Wikia says that it can be a ball OR a rectangle. www.google.at/url?sa=t&rct=j&a…
The German Empire Ball is an historical countryball.www.google.at/url?sa=t&rct=j&a…

''Sick man of Europe'' It is a shame that one of the biggest empire to exist in history given such a name.and even then we joined the war and helped to our ex-enemies/allies. All those are fallen under the banner of the Ottoman Empire and the Central Power's are heroes to my eyes

Where did u read that? Serbians did mass executions on Albanians
in the years before to get their land I read once. Serbias was rather mad
and wanted to become bigger and bigger causing even a world war for
their goal.

they actually just wanted the land that austrohungary took from them, where most serbs lived

But Austria-Hungary was a mini-EU there were dozens of ethnics, they did not make a difference.
Bosnia was legally taken and not a serbian region, but a mixed region, why shouldn´t for example
Croatia get it?
