Fan Fic / The German Risk AAR

The German RISK AAR is a particularly famous After-Action Report of Hearts of Iron, set before and during World War II, written by Rustican.

Following the Nazi high command and its successful quest for global domination, it turns a terrifying premise into a nonstop laugh fest. The keys to its success were simple: Refuge in Audacity and Rule of Funny. This AAR became so famous that, nearly 8 years after its release, it has drawn many people into the Hearts of Iron series and Paradox Interactive as a whole.

This work contains examples of:

  • Nigh-Invulnerability: As long as he has the One Disk, Hitler is invincible.
  • Not So Different: One of the very few serious moments has FDR pointing out that the United States' democracy can be just as bad as fascism.
