Mod «In The Name of The Tsar» for Hearts of Iron 4 (v1.11.1 - 1.11.11)

In The Name of The Tsar

This mod is an overhaul of Hearts of Iron and takes place in alternate timeline where Russia, after the Brusilovs offensive manages to break through the Austrian defences taking out Austria Hungarian Empire from the war. Germany, fearing complete destruction of their Empire sued for peace later in the beginning of 1917.

Peace treaty of Brussels took place 17th February 1917 dividing Germany to prevent its further expansion later. Nicolas II insisting on leaving Kaiser Wilhelm II in power of Prussia, under his sphere of influence.

United States do not join the Great War but still manage to arm the whole world. After witnessing the fears of war, the US Government decided to embrase isolationism. Through out 20s and 30s Herbert Hoover has kept America isolated from Europe but with upcoming elections and end of his second term, the United States might finally leave this undisturbed isolation.

A revolution takes place in Kingdom of Bavaria in 1919 and becomes Bavarian Soviet Republic. Communists want world revolution, in order to do that Germany needs to be reunited!
