AP#17 Italy Declares War
Nominally allied to Germany, Italy entered the war against the Central Powers in the name of "sacred egoism". With Paris firmly into German hands, perspectives of victory would certainly look faint for the Triple Entente, and Italy would not have joined what would appear to be the loosing side.
Neutral Entry Event Cards may only be played ONCE for OPs, RPs or SR. If a Neutral Entry Card is played a second time it must be played as an Event. This restriction aims at preventing the AP player from capitalizing on the non-commitment of his Allies. If the card cannot be played as an event and has already been played once for Ops, REPs or SR, it cannot be played at all, but may be discarded at the end of the turn.
