I started out as Eastern Europe and became an ally of Germany. We decided to gang up on the Balkans to gain a little more territory. After that, I was trapped in so I decided to invade Turkey. Russia and Saudi Arabia became angry and threatened war, so I retreated back to Istanbul. Turkey was angry at me for invading and kept attacking Istanbul for the rest of the game, forcing me to waste a few troops every turn. I was then struggling to keep up in an arms race against Russia while trying to find more land to take without success. Germany, seeing in how much trouble I was in, decided to give me all of his territories in the Balkans. I then invaded Italy, and Germany decided to follow since he was an ally. I gained the bottom half of Italy, including Rome. Then, England invaded Germany, giving Russia the oportunity to invade since our alliance was weakened. Turkey soon took Istanbul as my troops left to help at the Russian front. Saudi Arabia, which by this point had taken the northern coast of Africa, joined in. In all this chaos, my ally decided it was best to turn on me in order to join my enemies and survive. Needless to say I was crushed in the fight that followed.
