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. Its main force were the Imperial German Army and the Imperial German Navy.

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 came to power, building an enormous and zealous army and annexing neighboring countries, including Austria and Czechoslovakia. On September 1, 1939, the Germans invaded Poland, prompting a declaration of war from France and the United Kingdom, sparking World War II.

Its main force was the Wehrmacht, divided into the Heer (army), the Luftwaffe (air force) and the Kriegsmarine (navy). It also had a few expeditionary forces, such as the Afrika Korps, which fought in North Africa, and highly trained elite forces, the Waffen SS.

In modern times, Germany's armed forces are called "Bundeswehr" (Federal Defense) and serve alongside other NATO forces around the world.

NATO and the EUEdit


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.
