Focus on Storm of Steel

Written by Admin | Tags:

Invasion and retaliation shake the great powers and their allies as the World War explodes across Northern Europe!

Kingdom of Britannia forces have launched a major offensives across Belgium, seeking to bring battle to the Prussian Empire itself – the time has come to avenge the London Raid of 1870, as the Britannian Army of Flanders marches into the Prussian Empire’s Netherlands provinces.

However, the Kingdom is not fighting alone. From faraway Archangel and Murmansk, a powerful Russian Coalition expeditionary force has sailed for the British Isles. The Tsar is determined to open a new front in his own war against the Prussians and its allies.

But the Anglo-Russian armies are not the only ones on the offensive. The Republique of France is pouring forces into the Low Countries to aid its Belgian and Prussian allies. Moreover President Bonaparte, eager to trump the Prussian Empire’s audacious raid on London, has authorised nothing less than an assault on Britannia itself!

The fighting is gruelling and ferocious. In Belgium and the southern Netherlands, the massed armies of the Anglo-Russian alliance rumble into action against the mighty defensive lines of the Prussian Empire’s western frontiers. More Britannian forces strike towards Brussels, where they are met by powerful French forces heading north in support of their Prussian and Belgian allies. Once again, the fate of nations will hang in the balance over the hallowed fields of Waterloo.

But neither the Republique of France nor the Prussian Empire is content to remain passive. As its northern forces battle to lock the Britannians and Russians in a gruelling stalemate, the French gather another mighty army on its Channel coast. When the time is ripe, these forces will launch themselves across the narrow strip of water between France and its old enemy, intent on devastating the tranquil southern shores of England. In doing so, they will teach the Britannians that they cannot expect to wage war at will without feeling its savage touch within their home borders.

Meanwhile, Prussia’s infamous Mathias Sturm, architect of the London Raid and now promoted to General, lies in wait with his forces near the Prussian-Belgian border. Hungry for more glory, he is intent on making sure that the enemy advance into Belgium and the Netherlands is met with deadly force and paid for in fire and blood.

Amidst the carnage lesser world powers flock to the banners of both sides. Danish warships scour the North Sea, Hussars of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth gallop across southern England, Canadian Dominion forces stand firm alongside their Britannian cousins, and the Belgian Protectorate army clashes bitterly with its Royalist rebel enemies.

All will play their part, and all will be engulfed by the Storm of Steel!
