The Germans fought for the Central Powers. Or, more accurately, the Central Powers fought for Germany. Germany declared war on France and Russia in on August 1 and 3, and not until several days later was war declared between Austria-Hungary and either of these, or indeed on any country besides Serbia. In effect, Germany began the war unilaterally, and other powers (Austria-Hungary,and later Turkey and Bulgaria) subsequently adhered to her, forming the "Central Powers".
