Yeah, to an extent. He wasn't exactly the most reasonable of men all of the time, and while he wasn't the only one behind Germany's obsessive naval push that led to the arms race with Britain, he was a huge pusher for it. There's also things like the "Mad March Hares" comment - by all available evidence, Wilhelm did have something of a foot in mouth problem, to say the least, and he could be quite impulsive at the worst moments, but combine that with a lack of confidence and he could thus freeze up at also the worstmoments.He was always a reasonable person in OTL, if consumed by sentiment and with a terminal case of foot-in-mouth-syndrome
To an Extent?
Won't lie was slightly worried people would think it's 'too close to OTL' or something, so kinda glad it's gone down well ahaI'm also glad to see Maximilian of Baden is in the Chancellor' s office. This is a great idea.
It took me 15 minutes.I'm sure you put a lot of work in this and the map looks great
Beautiful?but those french-german and belgian-german borders are just
Paint.NETBtw which software you used to make the map?
Nice map! Now for a question, shouldn't Prussia have annexed that area further north of Luxembourg? Or is it just an Imperial Territory, like Alsace–Lorraine is/was? Also, I'm very concerned for Armenia, I'm expecting the worst for it....... as I always do in these CP victory TL's, and it looks like to me that the Russian intervention is ending even quicker.

The key IMHO is: If the Germans aren't too Cartoon Villain Stupid Evil, those places wont want to come back. Being a de-facto Dominion of the German Empire is leagues better then a province of either Tsarist or Communist Russia.well, yes, some, but can they get it back?
Didn't the Germans want to annex Lithuania and the Baltic duchies directly into the empire? Although I doubt they'd actually do so, I think that's indicative of the German establishment's attitude towards its conquests.The key IMHO is: If the Germans aren't too Cartoon Villain Stupid Evil, those places wont want to come back.
