German Wars – Part III

After covering 1525 until 1871 in the last two posts, this one starts 1888 until the present. And let me tell you, it is way more than "just" World War one and two.

Once again a short disclaimer and reminder, I am not an expert on that field nor is this going to be complete or 100% accurate, it is just a list to sow an idea or two for the tempted german or teutophile wargamer.

As this is about history, you can get a lot of information for free on the internet on pages like Wikipedia or libraries. On top of that, you'll surely find quite a lot of sources and books, for example Ospreys on different of these topics. Please note that some of these have different names or titles, depending if you're looking from an euro-centric or anglo-(american)-centric point of view.

These conflicts vary from revolts and unrest, from the colonies of the German Empire, to Weimar and even includes those of the German Democratic Republic.
