Estonian War of Independence (1918-1920) took place in the aftermath of the Great War. Republics of Estonia and Latvia seek to become independent states and have to oppose the Bolsheviks who want to make them part of Soviet Russia. Meanwhile Germany seeks to expand its influence in the region relying on the Freikorps and the local Baltic German nobility and the White Russian forces prepare to capture Petrograd - the former capital of Russia and to overthrow the Bolsheviks.
