    The Germans can't redeploy immediately that many divisions. Even if they win as IOTL, there will be significant casualties and more importantly, significant wear in materials. They did redeploy forces after the Balkan campaign (in just 1 month) towards Barbarossa IOTL, BUT the Balkan campaign...

    If that happens in June 1940, Germany will likely declare war but it will not have yet troops in Romania and Bulgaria . Yugoslavia is more Allied leaning. And Romania will likely be more resistant to Soviet (and German) threats when the nearest allied troops are in Constantinople (instead of...

    Still no declaration of war from Turkey to the Axis. In OTL Turkey declared war to the Axis in February 1945, when the nearest German forces were some isolated guards in some Aegean islands and any major German forces were located as far as Hungary... Has Turkey broken off relations with the...

    In this sentence we see exactly what was predicted by prominent commentators of this TL ; that the death of Venizelos from natural causes would help national reconciliation . Even at the brink of a war, it would be much more difficult for Dragoumis to participate in a national coalition...

    And so the engines of war are turned on... Poland fought 3 days more than OTL, caused more damage to Nazi Germany and more Polish soldiers escaped . I feel that Greece will enter the wr sooner than OTL (28/10/1940).

    What about naval and air forces?
  7. Of lost monkeys and broken vehicles

    A Titan has fallen, RIP Venizelos... As others have noted, this leads the way for the Greekpeople to think beyond the National Divide between Venizelists and Anti-Venizelists. A government of National Unity with the participation of at least Stratos and some moderate Anti-Venizelists is quite...

    I predict that Britain will withhold the Greek Spitfires for itself. Or Greece will receive just some Spitfires before war erupts and then Britain will send Hurricanes instead. Has Turkey started receiving ME-109s ? Concerning the succesion of Mustafa Kemal, it will be a very complicated...
  9. The Spirit of Salamis- A Short Allied Victory in Crete TL

    So, we have a successful liberation of Naxos, the center of the Cyclades archipelago and of the Dodecanese. More territory and more pupulation for the Free Greece but more importantly, much more prestige in the eyes of the continental Greeks. I guess the Greek Civil War will be much shorter...

    So ITTL Boris Pastrnak is not so lucky as IOTL... No Dr Zivago ITTL ! Madrid falls to the Nationalists much earlier. I wonder, if the Spanish Civil War is shorter and less destructive, does that mean that Spain will participate in WWII ? The Nationalist government will have more time to...

    Only ITTL with a much more capable Hellenic Navy and Airforce Crete will not fall.
  14. Of lost monkeys and broken vehicles

    But speaking of plane crushes, we have a big difference ITTL . I think that MS405 prototype didn't crash IOTL, so here France is even more desperate for a "modern" fighter. About Greece, I don't know about artillery but mortars will be easily manufactured, and given the rugged terrain in Greece...

    The referendum will take place at fall of 1936, the latest. When I say that Turkey will make its move on Asiatic Greece shortly after the referendum, I mean in 1937 or 1938,. It is also certain that Turkey will make this move with the participation of at least one ally.

    The National Government has a thinner majority than OTL (429, of which 387 are Conservatives). The creation of the ELEO is a bing change. I have a feeling that Turkey will make its move against Asiatic Greece shortly after the Carian referendum...

    There will be no need to further equip the Turkish Army in late 1944, by then the Germans will probably be hundreds of Km away from Turkish borders.

    And the butterflies keep flying... The Second Italo-Ethiopian War starts 13 months earlier and Italy commits more men than IOTL. Greece will have its own production of adequate (by the standards of 1939) fighters and is significantly ahead in its rearmament. @Lascaris which is the class of...

    In OTL 1934 the Kingdom of Yugoslavia had a population of 14.566.000 people, which is much more than TTL Greece . Romania IOTL 1930 had a population of 18.057.028 people. I doubt that the populations ITTL will be much different. With a much larger population and with a much smaller refugee...
