day 5 - 19th century Risk

The Year was 1816; the year that a Moldavian prisoner (about to be executed by de capitation infront of Mahmud II sultan of the Ottomans) broke free of his guards and smothered the Sultan with his own turban, suffacating him! After this John King of Wallachia siezed the Ottoman empire merging it with Wallachia and Moldavia. After this Europe tumbled into war faster than a falling russian puppy!
First of all the British declared war on the Ottomans realising they were becoming to powerful and that soon they may be the next Napoleon. Then the Prussians (allies of Wallachia) declared war of the British. Then Russia, Britain's ally declared war on them both. After this the alliances of the North sea (Between Britain and Swesen) and Mediterranean Sea (Between Wallachia and Naples) were formed dragging in America and France as well.
Very soon nearly the whole world was in a slow and desperate struggle to deny power to the Ottomans whilst gaining and protecting their own.
