  Central Powers during World War 1 - Introduction
The Central Powers Alliance was described from the German and Austrian side as a "Bund", an association.
The Central Powers reached what was to be their full strength on October 14, 1915 with Bulgaria's opportunistic entry into the war against Serbia as massed German and Austro-Hungarian armies attacked from the north.
The alliance therefore became "der Vierbund", The Association of Four, which was to remain until the disintegration of late 1918 as each of the Centrals sought armistice and peace in turn.

 Mending Fences: Repairing U.S.-Central European Relations After Iraq | Publications | CEPA   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Central Europe’s generous support of U.S. war aims is all the more remarkable in light of the fact that none of these countries have any discernable interests at stake in Iraq or its environs.
Unlike their Western European neighbors, Central Europeans still have to obtain a visa when traveling to the United States – a lengthy process that entails an application, interview at the U.S. Embassy, and non-refundable $100 fee (the equivalent of a week’s income in parts of the region).
Left unaddressed, Central European disappointment over Iraq – while unlikely to cause a permanent rift in the relationship – is likely to change the way the region’s powers do business with the United States in at least three fundamental ways – each of which holds negative implications for American interests in the region and beyond.

It would be folly to predict that the great powers with their powerful objectives will renounce the economic, political and strategic goals over which they are now contending so intensely - and decide to start cooperating.
