    China has enough men, resources and land to pull that strategy off.

    Russia and France will probably be doing the heavy lifting in Europe. Britain probably will be focused on North America and the colonial territory. Asia will probably be China Vs Japan. The other powers have units of questionable morale.(would the Indians really push that hard against the Chinese) Hex mentioned a possible Vietnam uprising. The only real reinforcements are from Australia.

    Oh, and something I left out about the Raj fighting China head-on--it's effectively impossible, given the fact that the tallest mountain range in the world, the Himalayas, separates them.

    Right, that would be a serious problem, especially with early 20th century technology. That probably should have been obvious.

    Most likely they'd join the ANZACs in Indochina

    Well, the Vietnamese not really liking the Chinese would mean they would probably stay loyal for now.

    Wow.

    Simply beautiful. and I love how another atl is referenced, and how all that might have been and what was in this timeline are compared and contrasted through divine judgement of the afterlife. Really good piece.

    Yeah, that would be cool. heck, you could have a series of one-offs and shorts set in this afterlife as prominent characters from atls show up and are judged.

    HeX presents...

    THE BIGGEST CROSSOVER EVENT IN AH.COM HISTORY

    featuring alternate versions of your favorite people from the worlds of A More Perfect Union, What Madness is This?, Our Fair Country, Hail, Britannia, TL-191, The Man in the High Castle, Kaiserreich, The Thousand-Week Reich, Reds!, Wolfenstein, The Domination of the Draka, Decades of Darkness, 1983: Doomsday, As One Star Sets, Another Rises, and many, many more...

    (In all honesty, that'd be fun to do, but it'd be a logistical nightmare, too...
    Also, @theg*ddam*hoi2fan, I'm a huge fan of your 2015 Japan ISOT to 1939 TL! Just thought I'd say that.)​

    Logistical nightmare...but it might possible to get some the authors to cooperate! In case of alternatehistory.com members. fans of books might have talent and willingness to simply put a short one-off. If its too much of a logistical nightmare, that's fine. But, boy it would be great if it came to pass.

    Why not just a simple AMPU/WMIT crossover?

    They are gonna try to out Exterminatus each other, one side out of sheer disgust out how bad the other world became, the other just because they are out of their minds and will try to nuke them out of sheer spite at how much better the other side is

    Why not just one average American citizen switches places with a Pinnacle Man of the RU?

    I actually see What Madness Is This existing in the ampu universe as a tabletop game like Warhammer 40000, something so dark it crosses over into black humor. Tons of lore about each faction as well, combined with over the top dark humor are why it becomes popular.

    By that time dueling was illegal I think. It still happened in the West but that was due to lack of law enforcement. More likely they would debate about the Union

    Maybe not a duel, persay, but I could definitely see AMPU Lee getting into a fight with like 90% of his other selves, given that they not only fought to destroy the Union, but most of them fought for the cause of slavery as well. And given TTL's Lee's much more progressive stance... that's a recipe for disaster.
    Nothing's really illegal in the Beyond...
