Damn, this Victoria game is insane - I've spent at least 3 in-game years trying to win this war, and almost my entire army is committing to an invasion of northern Germanty. Foix, despite being neutral French ground, is home to a meat grinder of a battle, lasting years. The Royal Navy has destroyed every single Kriegsmarine ship, I'm just waiting for Germany to capitulate - likely when I hit Berlin. At least the Dutch have sued for a favourable peace agreement.
The siege of Hamburg has ended; time to reach Berlin.
Looks like I'm the only country in the world making tanks too... time to take advantage of this.
