What is happening in Germany in 1914CE

Germany has become the leading industrial nation in Europe, particularly with regard to heavy industries such as iron, steel, coal, chemicals and railways. She is also by far the strongest military power, with an army built around the old Prussian army with its proud traditions, and a new navy that compares well with the British navy in the North Sea, in terms of size, equipment and efficiency.

Since 1888, the German Empire has been ruled by Kaiser Wilhelm II. He soon encompassed the resignation of the great statesmen, Bismark, and broke free of his cautious policies. He is determined to make Germany the leading power in Europe, if not in the world.
