  2. W.I. Hitler’s Daughter had created the Fourth Reich in Russia?

    Putin's brand of Russian nationalism is just a veneer used to cover up his failures in managing the economy, and has quite a few differences from Nazism/Fascism. Russia is a kleptocratic oligarchy with some ultranationalist trappings, and while one could make the argument that the Third Reich...
  3. W.I. Hitler’s Daughter had created the Fourth Reich in Russia?

    Assuming Putin's goons don't get to her first. The man has ambitions and he's not going to let a bunch of skinheads beat him to power. Also, while there is a neo-Nazi movement in Russia, I'd imagine it would be Slavocentric rather than Aryan, or would have the belief that 'pure' Russians would...
  4. I made a reverse Cold War map

    admittedly, for maps like these, with the intent behind them, strict realism is not the intent. Though yes, Japan works as a fascist aggressor better than Poland given a 1900 PoD, because at least by WW1 it had engaged in serious industry-building and had a reputation as a junior world power...
  5. I made a reverse Cold War map

    Are we talking "1979 Soviet invasion of Afghanistan", or "2001 American invasion of Afghanistan"? If the former, I find it hard to believe the UASR would go invade Tibet, a territory right on its enemies' borders, on a very sparse and strained logistical train going through India and the...
  6. I made a reverse Cold War map

    To be fair, this seems to be a more "for funsies" map than a serious alternate history. A speculative world that is the complete mirror image of our own, with a Europe divided along Communist and Capitalist lines, only with a Communist UASR and Capitalist Russian Federation. It's not realistic...
  7. I made a reverse Cold War map

    The borders need work. Like what's been mentioned, pick up a blank map with borders from wikimedia commons or try to find a borders map here on AH.com, preferably from 1919 or 1945. Also, you need to clarify what is what, put a key or labels on things. I can get that the northmost nations in...
  8. It's A Long Way To Nagasaki: The Anglo-Japanese War

    I think you meant USN. But yes, at this point, Britain is just asking for a capitulation, not complete unconditional surrender. It has no interest in Korea (aside from reducing Japanese strength) and doesn't have the ability or will to press the war home. It just wants Japan to give up its...
  9. It's A Long Way To Nagasaki: The Anglo-Japanese War

    Very little, unless the UK puts in the serious effort to help the Chinese Nationalists. Right now, it's a case of "Britain's on our side only because Japan stole its stuff - which the British in turn stole from us in unfair treaties. So basically it's all our stuff to begin with." While Jiang is...
  10. It's A Long Way To Nagasaki: The Anglo-Japanese War

    :headdesk: Gotta love how the pencil-pushers and institutions hobbled their own militaries before there was even a war. Of course, it's not like they had the gift of foresight, so nobody knew how badly they'd need the Royal Marines in a couple of decades. Still, one has to pity the poor...
  11. It's A Long Way To Nagasaki: The Anglo-Japanese War

    Oh, they were incompetent. It's just... well, they had the deck stacked against them in ludicrous fashion, and kept getting their asses (well, not just them but China as a whole) kicked repeatedly. Admittedly, some of the image came from General Joseph Stilwell (the American liaison to the...
  12. Dixieland: The Country of Tomorrow, Everyday (yet another Confederate TL)

    Given the early PoD, one has to wonder if he even exists ITTL.
  13. Dixieland: The Country of Tomorrow, Everyday (yet another Confederate TL)

    I'm not sure. The PoD is pretty early here, so German colonization of Africa could potentially be much different. I leave it to the OP to decide.
  14. Dixieland: The Country of Tomorrow, Everyday (yet another Confederate TL)

    In what way is it an analog to the Second Boer War? In that one, Britain had problems fighting a small force of men who had switched to a bloody insurgency, true, but unlike the CSA, Britain was this massive Great Power that was somehow getting bloodied in what was supposed to be a small police...
  15. Dixieland: The Country of Tomorrow, Everyday (yet another Confederate TL)

    Oddly enough, the first OTL concentration camps were the Boer ones (as in the ones the British used to intern Boer families in), and while those succeeded in their task of breaking Boer resistance, they generated a lot of outrage in Europe over the treatment of "fellow White men" to the degree...
  16. It's A Long Way To Nagasaki: The Anglo-Japanese War

    Oh. Right. Forgot the Nazis sucked big time at economics and believed in plundering other nations.
  17. It's A Long Way To Nagasaki: The Anglo-Japanese War

    That... actually depends. Their invasion of Norway was motivated by the fact that the Norwegians were not going to do anything about British convoy raiders attacking German commerce in the Baltics - almost all of Germany's steel comes from Sweden, and cutting that would wreck Germany's economy...
  18. It's A Long Way To Nagasaki: The Anglo-Japanese War

    I know that, it's just I was showing how utterly few options France had to un-f**k its situation. The Americans had tried helping Europe in WW1, but that turned out to be a bust (German atrocities were vastly exaggerated to the American public, and the Entente promptly wasted its hard-earned...
  19. It's A Long Way To Nagasaki: The Anglo-Japanese War

    Well, this is a fine mess France finds itself in. Can't jump in bed with the Soviets, can't count on Britain's help, can't trust Hitler, and the Yankees are just sitting on their side of the pond, content to do nothing.
