    The Cup of Ruin and Desolation: WWIII in 1965

    This is my first attempt at a serious timeline, so don't be too harsh. The goal is to analyze what World War III (and more specifically, nuclear war) would look like if it were fought in 1965. There may be some mistakes, and this may or may not be plausible, but I've gone to great lengths to...

    World War III in 1948: Aftermath (US Victory)?

    So, like it says on the tin.

This was as the Allies reached Minsk and the USSR had already taken nearly...

    DBWI: No World War III?

    World War III took place from 1983 to 1991. It was seen as mostly a repeat of World War II, as the Nazis were the enemy again. The war was expected to be short, what with the Global Freedom Coalition exploiting the Italo-German split to have Italy (along with their Spanish allies) be on their...
