Flag of Germany

The current flag of Germany

Germany (German: Deutschland), officially the Federal Republic of Germany (German: Bundesrepublik Deutschland), is a country in Central Europe.

The first modern unified state in German history was the German Empire, founded in 1871 by Wilhelm I, King of Prussia. The country was a member of the Central Powers during World War I alongside Austria-Hungary and Ottoman Empire. However, as their war effort collapsed in 1918, the empire fell to civil conflicts, resulting in the abdication of Emperor Wilhelm II and the end of the German Empire. The Weimar Republic that succeeded the empire carried the burdens of the war in the years that followed.

Probably one of the most infamous eras of German history was the fascist Nazi regime of the Third Reich or Nazi Germany. In 1933, Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party came to power within the Weimar Republic, and soon seized all power from the democratic Reichstag. In the years that followed, Hitler built an enormous and zealous army and annexed neighboring countries, including Austria and Czechoslovakia. On September 1, 1939, Nazi Germany invaded Poland, prompting a declaration of war from France and the United Kingdom, sparking World War II.

Military OrganizationsEdit


Germany is a part of both NATO and the European Union, both of which are featured as factions in their own rights in the Battlefield series. Germany is therefore presumably involved indirectly in other Battlefield games as a part of these two alliances.

Battlefield 1942 Edit

Germany appears as a part of the Axis in Battlefield 1942. The country is represented by four forces: the Luftwaffe, the Wehrmacht, the Afrika Korps and the Waffen SS.

Germany in Battlefield 1942 is based off the Third Reich, though the game omits any references to Fascism, Nazism or Hitler, in order to release the game through German censors, as German law prohibits the use of Nazi symbols for non-historical or educational purposes. In addition, their use in France and Hungary would be legally questionable.
