Formed the Flag of Byzantine Empire Byzantine Empire

The required states are in purple. The other colored states are required for the other decisions and are not required for the achievement.

To fulfill the Achievement I Swear I'm Not a Byzantophile, Flag of Greece Greece must control all territory required to form the Flag of Byzantine Empire Byzantine Empire. It the states that must be controlled are all the Flag of Greece Greek, Flag of Turkey Turkish, Flag of Bulgaria Bulgarian and Flag of Yugoslavia Yugoslav states, Flag of Albania Albania and the states of Southern Flag of Romania Romania (Banat, Oltenia, Muntenia and Dobrudja).


As Flag of Greece Greece, boost popularity of FascismFascism or CommunismCommunism. As soon as Greece changes ideology, justify and declare war against Flag of Bulgaria Bulgaria. After Flag of Bulgaria Bulgaria capitulates, justify against Flag of Turkey Turkey. Prepare against naval invasions because Turkey will have a slightly stronger navy than Greece. It may be easier to use the Bulgarian land to encircle the Turkish army. Once the bulk of the Turkish army is encircled and overrun, push through Anatolia and the Bosporus Strait.

After Flag of Turkey Turkey capitulates, prepare for war against Italy and the Axis. Italy will be annexing Flag of Albania Albania and Flag of Yugoslavia Yugoslavia and will soon be going to war with Flag of Greece Greece via their national focus. It is recommended to not join the Allies. This is in case some of the territory required falls to the Soviets. A while later, Flag of Romania Romania will join the Axis as well. It may be beneficial if land forts are placed on the border from Albania to Romania. Wait it out until the Germans declare against the Soviets. Join the Comintern when this happens. With Soviet help, it may be easier to push against the Axis. Make the push for the required states. If the Soviets take required Romanian states, give states that are not needed and ask for control for the required states. As soon as the required states are in Greek control, click the Restore Byzantium decision.
