    For Want of A Sandwich - A Franz Ferdinand Lives Wikibox TL

    And how is Chile reacting to the civil war in its neighbor? After all, they too would want Atacama back, like Paraguay which is reconquering Chaco. PS: Minor error in your dates, 1936 to 1989 for Busch regime is 53 years, not 63.

    From the little I could gather on Sirte at the time, there was nothing much of note besides the old Turkish fort (I didn't get if the Italians upgraded or improved it), and before the oil discovery, the references are of the waters around Sirte not quite friendly to traffic (I couldn't find yet...

    But does that actually affect British decision making, does that make them so confident Kirkuk is out of danger to ignore it altogether?

    What are the British forces in Iraq so far? I think that given the Turks' less amicable stance IOTL, even though there are attempts made at appeasement (well, with Churchill, we can't doubt that is up to a certain degree), the British may have beefed up their presence in northern Iraq to...

    Is that narrative license from some nationalist TTL propaganda ? I'm asking because the Parthians were roughly from the Khwarezm region, that is the northeastern and not northwestern border region of Iran. And the Scythians, hower vague and global the name was, generally referred to the nomads...

    Ventis Ferrum: Dupleix's Success and Beyond

    It may go for credit perhaps, though I doubt, but to be clear, most ventures of the various companies through the 17th and 18th centuries were, most unlike the British and Dutch models, prompted and sustained by state interventionism. The companies were all created by the state which...

    I don't doubt they will soon get that heavy artillery from the Germans... along the gunners, and also tanks... Besides, the Thracian plain looks well suited for the panzers to pour into.

    Just thinking, seeing how Pangalos faded into obscurity and bore the stain of dictatorship after the 1920s IOTL, I feel like ITTL he is well bound to become, at least in military history books, one of the major Allied generals, besides Eisenhower, Zhukov, Montgomery or MacArthur. That's seeing...

    I guess that would be Khmer Rouge style on steroids from what I've read so far in this TL. Of course the North Koreans would look nice compared to such people.

    If that's the case, they won't be alone. I'm pretty sure Churchill has a whole group of fighters earmarked and ready for a transfer to Greek airfields at any moment notice, and that the Greek and British staffs have been working together on plans to such an end.

    Don't be so hard on yourself, that looks good so far.

    Indeed, that'd be a hard place to be stuck in. How bad in comparison to Malta? So, I assume the Turks would be able to spare that much heavy artillery from any siege operation against Smyrna, and protect it against counter battery fire and bombing raids (if the Allies can spare some bombers...

    How so? India didn't cultivate and export tea until the second half of the 19th century after Robert Fortune stole tea seeds and plants along the cultivation and preparation technics of the Chinese in the 1840s, before which point China had a monopoly on tea. And the part of India France...

    That's a four to seven kilometers front to defend at best around Bulair between Bakla Bay and the sea of Marmara (assuming the risk of an amphibious landing in the rear from Cannakale is low). A strong corps, I don't know; perhaps a beefed up division at least. Since Greece is now a...
