History[edit | edit source]
In the early 20th century, Germany was part of the Central Powers during World War One. Having lost the conflict, Germany was forced to sign a humiliating armistice that wrecked the nation's economy, causing hyperinflation. German confidence and power had been badly shaken. The loss of its colonies and its monarchy were grievous disasters resulting in a period of revolution and counter-revolution. During this borderline anarchistic time, two major political parties began to gain power: the National Socialist party, led by Adolf Hitler and the Communist Party of Germany. The struggle between the two political parties weakened them both. After the failed Beer Hall putsch, Adolf Hitler, NSDAP's leader was incarcerated and the NSDAP started to fall apart. After he was released, he mysteriously disappeared altogether, leading to the collapse of the Nazi party. With the NSDAP out of the picture and the communist party broken, the way was paved for centralist parties (such as the pre-existing Social Democratic Party), who rebuilt Germany into a major European power.

Second World War[edit | edit source]
Germany was a crucially important member of the Allies, contributing its well trained and equipped military to the Allied cause. In addition, one of its top military commanders, General Gunther von Esling, was appointed as the first Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, while the German-born Jew Albert Einstein became one of the top researchers (and inventors) of the Allies.
When the USSR began its attack on Europe, Germany was one of the first countries to be hit by the invasion and was eventually overtaken by the Soviets, forcing the German military to retreat into France (Although, considering that they only had about 1 million soldiers with 3 tank divisions and were being attacked by about 5 million Soviet soldiers with 14 tank divisions, it's actually very impressive that they held out as long as they did.).
Third World War[edit | edit source]
By the Third World War, Germany had recovered and rebuilt. However it was not able to help the United States immediately, because the rebuilt Soviet Union had its nuclear missiles targeting the European Allies. After the Soviet missile base in Poland where two Nuclear Missile Silos were destroyed, they led their forces along with France to eliminate the Soviet bases in Poland and prepared for a strike to attack Russia.
But when Paris was attacked, the French withdrew their forces causing disorganization, making the attack impossible. Germany's most significant development during the war was providing the Allies with their Tank Destroyers. They also put America's leaders in contact with Dr. Albert Einstein so he could give them necessary aid in building a new Chronosphere, Mirage Tank, and Prism Technology.
In an attempt to destroy Einstein's laboratory in the Black Forest, located in southwestern Germany, the Soviets invaded Poland and then crossed the border to push towards the Black Forest. This resulted in the southern half of Germany being invaded by the Soviets, however Berlin and much of the north held out. The Soviet offensive thrust was decisively stopped in a large scale battle in the Black Forest by a talented Allied Commander from the US and simultaneously defended Einstein's lab.
Third World War (third iteration)[edit | edit source]
Germany was initially overrun by Soviets forces like France. The Soviets established a large Soviet HQ in Heidelberg, and constructed an Iron Curtain to defend it. Nevertheless an Allied counter-offensive, which involved the use of air power in the form of Vindicator Bombers, liberated the city.
German mechanics designed the new Allied MCV used in this conflict.

Berlin: The capital city of Germany and a major command centre for the Allies. This was where General Carville was headed to oversee Allied operations in Europe before he was assassinated. During the War of the Three Powers, the leading Soviet scientist Gregor Zelinsky defected to this city.
Heidelberg: A large Soviet HQ was established here as the command centre for operations in Western Europe. It was defended by Soviet troops under Commander Oleg and the Iron Curtain. The Vindicator Close Support Jet made a good Air Show here.

First Tiberium War[edit | edit source]
Germany continued to prosper after the war, becoming a prominent member of the Global Defence Initiative during the presidency of Helmut Bierman. Erich "Patch" Wulfe, a German soldier, was a member of Dead 6.
Second Tiberium War[edit | edit source]
Third Tiberium War[edit | edit source]
Most of Germany was declared a Yellow Zone after TW2 until recently GDI scientists discovered a way to drive back Tiberium by means of sonic resonators. They were able to turn a small area back into a Blue Zone which was called "New Eden".
During the Third Tiberium War, New Eden came under particularly heavy attack from the Scrin invaders. GDI forces did eventually manage to drive the Scrin from Germany. Cities attacked include Munich, Cologne and Stuttgart.
