Lake Geneva, Switzerland
Geneva is a town that is located on Lake Geneva in Switzerland. It is the location of one of the Allied command centers in Europe. Geneva is also the home of the major Swiss banks and the Palace of Nations.
History[edit | edit source]
During World War I, Switzerland was a neutral country. When Germany surrendered the Versailles Treaty was signed by the victorious Allies in Geneva at the Palace of Nations. The town of Geneva has since served as one of the major Allied strongholds on continental Europe. Due to the abundance of money flowing into Swiss banks, Geneva was a source of wealth for all.
Third World War (Red Alert 3)[edit | edit source]
|The following is based on the Soviet campaign of Red Alert 3 and contradicts canon sources.|
In the non-canon Soviet campaign of the War of the Three Powers, the embattled Allied forces regrouped in Geneva while the Soviet Union had its hands tied in repelling the Empire's invasion of their territories. During that time, the newly-elected US President Howard T. Ackerman announced that the United States will contribute its military and vast economic resources to assist the Allied forces still fighting in Europe. The Soviet Union, having just pushed the Empire out of Vladivostok, resumed their offensive against the Allies and fought them in an almighty battle in Geneva. The Allied garrison there, commanded by Lissette Hanley, resisted strongly, even chrono-teleporting their Aircraft Carriers and Dolphins onto the lake but the town ultimately fell to the Red Army. The Swiss banks were also captured by the Soviets, and this led to the Allies pulling out of continental Europe altogether.
