Strategy Edit

Present DayEdit

Poland starts in a relatively good position. You are decently sized, a member of the EU, many potential alliances, and great routes for expansion. Fabricating and declaring war on Flag of Slovakia Slovakia will be very beneficial for your manpower and economy. Germany Germany is going to be the biggest annoyance to Poland throughout your game, so do whatever you can to weaken them. However, in order declare war against members of the European Union European Union, you must leave the EU via decision. If you are stronger than the Germans, or if Germany is distracted in a war, taking Berlin should be easy! It's right on your border!
