Strategy Edit

The Cold WarEdit

As East Germany, you share a similar goal to your neighbor West Germany West Germany; that goal is to reunite Germany Germany. You however want to unite the German people under Communism instead of Capitalism. Finding allies in Europe to help shouldn't be that hard. Check to see who has rivaled West Germany in order to see if their enemies would accept an alliance from you. Good allies would include Modern France France or the Soviet Union USSR. The issue here is the same one that WG has in forming Germany; you need to retake Königsberg/Kaliningrad from the Soviets. If the Soviet Union gets into a heated war with China China, that is the time to strike.
