    Much greater numbers of troops escaping to Crete and Egypt and Crete holding plus less success in Africa is going to bite. It seems likely Germany will have to send more divisions to hold Greece against possible attacks.

    Not much of a change so far, they most likely discount it to it is really nasty terrain to advance through compared to defending.

    Would be not so safe for Ibrahim either. Such a state could be amendable to accepting a large bribe to turn him over.

    Horus Triumphant - an Alternate Antiquity timeline

    A great update, Romans killing Alexander, doomed them to a fight of victory or oblivion. Sicily falling back under Argead control, and no further expansion seemed likely

    Seems likely Rome will go down hard, they just don't have the manpower to fight Philip especially when their Italian allies see the Argead army. Carthage may be harder though, re-establishing their control of the former territory in Sicily is possible.

    I would like to see Baghdad as a hold for the Romans, close to the front line. A neutral zone with i.e. an independent state beholden for its survival on both sides, with Basra a open city for trade for all.

    So deeper in Russia, and facing stronger ally forces in Normandy and Southern France and extra front in Greece. Bagration coming up, even more brutal fight perhaps for the Soviet Union and Germany on the Eastern front. The Soviet Union may not be first to Berlin, If so I hope the Western Allies...

    An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    The Roman army at a price has really won its goals, fighting through the Zargos mountains does not sound like a good idea. Iskander needs to go on or loose his attempt at the throne, and most likely die. Mesopotamia has been broken, the borders will be advanced, the remaining Muslim population...

    Is there not also the issue a lot of the German pilots shot down and survived are more likely to remain prisoners of the Allies? No release of prisoners held by the French after the capitulation.

    I'm caught up on this, a worthy timeline indeed. Following the North Africa campaign on this map. https://www.britannica.com/event/North-Africa-campaigns

    It does not seem likely that taking more of Greece will lead to more major bomber bases in the area. The invasion of Europe from Britain is soon, that is where the resources will flow. Certainly emergency airfields further north are likely for damaged bombers returning from a raid.

    They were probably going to arrive on the beach first thing in the morning and dig a bunch of holes in the sand.

    That helmet will not last long in any kind of trench warfare, pretty much screams shoot me.
