The continuation of the @blsssd map on the Map thread.I wanted to do a map based on Germany gaining occult powers, and also was influenced by TNO. This is the result.
Himmlers Dead Men: The Greater German Reich in 1960
The PoD is Hitler dies before Operation Barbarossa, Barbarossa goes slightly slower than OTL but Himmlers studies in the occult yield results. He resurrects Hitler and nearly a million German soldiers through one of the largest rituals of all time. Zombie Hitler and the Dead SS are able to make Russia capitulate and make Reichskommissariat in Russia. Three years later, Himmler teleports the Dead SS (using another gigantic ritual) from Brittany to London. The surrounded British surrender and the UK becomes a Reichskommissariat.
Afterwards, the majority of Europe was under Germany. Ulster, seeing a bad future ahead seceded from the UK and joined Ireland as an autonomous territory. Scotland is a major hotbed for rebellion, and the entirety of the UK is near ungovernable even with genocide.
In France, the Free French were massacred, while collaborators were rewarded. The Free French have been practically wiped out, with only the colonial Free French remaining to continue the resistance
The Balkans were split between Italy and Germany, with Italy researching how to harness the power of God,successfully turning Vatican City into a holy weapon that protected the entirety of the greater Italian sphere. Mussolini began reforms and made the country more religious as faith was the fuel for the Vatican. Italy is leaving the sphere of the Reich, as they do not like the godless pagans
The USSR was practically destroyed after the war, with Stalin killed in war and Beria and Molotov taking over. Several warlord states seceded from Russia, and Beria was fighting a losing war, when he finally decided to use Russian pagan symbols to resurrect Stalin. Zombie Stalin consolidated the USSR, and drove out many warlords with only the West Siberian League, a organization consisting of three republics in Siberia, remaining.
In Turkey, shocked by the closeness of the Third Reich, Turkey was able to resurrect Kemal Ataturk. Seeing the atrocities done by the Reich,Zombie Kemal knew that there was no chance of peace, instead invading the Middle Eastern Reichskommissariats, taking them for Turkey and puppeting Egypt. He industrialized for nearly 10 years. Germany attempted to send the Dead SS to Ankara, but Kemal routed them and defeated the undefeatable. He then freed Sudan from the Reich, making it an independent kingdom. He was also able to setup a protection field in the Haga Sophia.
India is controlled by the Azad Hind. They broke away from the Axis, and are currently in a protracted border conflict with China.
Japan continues to be occupied by the US.
France fights major wars in Africa, with a military blockade of their one non landlocked country.
America funds anti-German states across the world, and does their own research into the occult. They have gained Spain as an ally, and it is their land base in Europe
With Scotland, Ireland, Spain, France, the USSR and Turkey planning a great war on the Reich, their ally Italy leaving them due to not being Christian, internal strife dividing the Reich, and a bad economy, the Reich will fall. The question is: when will it be?View attachment 588390
