I’m looking forward to the postwar world map!
Will there be anything akin to the 1918-19 German Revolution ITTL in Britain involving the leadership of the Labour Party empowering right-wing veterans to beat off communist revolutionaries?The triumphant voices of thousands of young men and a few women echoed off the buildings. The onslaught was too much. On November 5, 1919, Field Marshal F. Stanley Maude threw in the towel. The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland capitulated, and an armistice was signed.
Their fate, and that of the rest of the world, would be decided in a few agonizing months.
And like in OTL, we know there will only be more trouble later.
Concerning Mexico, the lust for annexation is minuscule here. The issue was not Mexico but Porfiro Díaz, and with him deposed and liberal democracy returned to the country there is no desire to take more land. Plus, the US has all of Canada save Québec and Newfoundland & Labrador, Russian Alyeska, and most of the Caribbean. It's perfectly happy for now.I'm concerned about how the US will think of their war in Mexico. After spending a lot of lives, some citizens may insist that the US gain further territories (though not as valuable as other states) to signify that something was gained there. Granted, the US probably got all of the Caribbean territories, minus Hispaniola.
Also, what's going to happen to the territorial claims of Antarctic (1840 & 1908 for the French and the British), Austrailia, and New Zealand, since the League won?
Unless I'm missing something, I don't think TTL Britain is suffering from the same kind of left-wing rebellions as OTL Germany.I could see the Black and Tans becoming Britain's very own 'Freikorps'.
