The moment has come for us to give you something you can really sink your teeth into! As you already know, our new game is taking place in an alternative 1940s dieselpunk setting. You align yourself with one of the unique factions and set out on a path of world domination. Now it’s time for us to reveal our first faction – The European Alliance!
“Sir, you alone can carry forth the beacon of civilization and reclaim that which is ours by birthright”
- The nameless soldier
The European Alliance sees itself as a beacon of light and civilization in the world. The Europeans believe themselves to be bringers of culture, technology and order to the less-fortunate in the far-flung corners of their colonial empires. They credit themselves with uplifting the world from the dark ages and bringing it to the lights of industry, unity and power.
However, their supreme arrogance and the belief that the world is theirs alone, has earned the European Alliance many enemies. To the east, a monster of their own creation, the Soviet Union, is zealous in its pursuit of spreading the glory of socialism. The fanatical socialists invaded Europe in 1895, sparking the Great European War. The European nations were forced to unite as one to fight the common enemy. In the struggle to protect their own countries, the Europeans had no choice but to abandon their colonies and this shattered their empires.
Thus the European Alliance was born out of desperation and distress. Make no mistake, the Europeans might not have an empire anymore, but the belief in their own superiority is still ingrained in their bones. The legacy of Nelson, Napoleon, Bismarck and other hallowed names is still alive and united to a single purpose – restoring the Alliance to its rightful ruling position in the world and to exact vengeance on all those who threatened and abandoned them in their time of greatest peril.
The commander of a European army will face many enemies and fight on many fronts. He can be confident that the martial prowess and superior technology of the European military will prevail, and the rightful supremacy of European civilization will be restored to former glory!
