Second Eurasian War

The First Eurasian War (1923-1926) is sometimes considered part of a Fourth Global War, along with the North American War and the Second Eurasian War. The First Eurasian War grew out of the Third Global War, but only involved Europe and Asia, with minor fighting in North Africa.

In 1923, King Robert IV and I of Scotland and Wales became King of Bavaria and Presiding King of Rhineland. John Cartwright of England had been waiting for this. With the blessings of his allies, Austria, Naples, Russia, China, he issued an ultimatum demanding that Scotland and Wales not unite themselves with Rhineland. The ultimatum was, predictably, rejected, and England declared war upon Scotland and Wales, invading and quickly subduing them. Rhineland declared war upon England, in alliance with France. Austria declared war upon France, and soon a series of alliances were triggered resulting in war all across Eurasia. The North American powers remained outside of the conflict.

The Quintuple Alliance, was far better prepared for war then their opponents, and had been working on improving their weaponry. England crossed the Channel and quickly defeated France, while Austria invaded and conquered Rhineland, establishing the Greater German Empire, and invaded former Austro-Hungarian territories. Russia grabbed Eastern European territories as well, and also turned eastward against Japanese possessions, dividing up North Asia with China, who quickly conquered Chôxen and southeast Asia. Italy was, for the first time since the Roman Empire, united under a single government.

By 1926, most of the Eurasian landmass was under the control of the Quadruple Alliance.

Taking advantage of the shock to Franco-Japanese power, the North American Confederation initiated the North American War (1925-1930), which, however, did not go nearly as well for them as the First Eurasian War had for England.
