Playing as Germany, what nations may join my alliance via event?

As Germany the nations you can get alliances with via events are : Croatia, Austria, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Slovakia, USSR.

  • Following the annexation of Yugoslavia an event will fire giving you the option to free Croatia in return for some free infantry divisions and they will join your alliance.
  • The Austrian anschluss event allows you to ally with Austria rather than annexing them, if you so desire.
  • The Molotov Ribbentrop pact event gives the USSR an opportunity to offer Germany an alliance. (The "Unholy Alliance") This is very rare to happen though and the AI tends to perform poorly under this arrangement.
  • Slovakia and Czechoslovakia can both be brought to the axis also through different paths in the End of Czechoslovakia event chain.
  • Hungary can be got through the Czechoslovakian event chain, if the Czechs decide to fight against Germany then Hungary will side with Germany.
