The Second World War, also known as World War II (WWII or WW2), was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945. It involved the vast majority of the world’s countries – including all the great powers – forming two opposing military alliances: the Axis and the Allies. In a state of total war, directly involving more than 100 million personnel from more than 30 countries, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. The Second World War was the deadliest conflict in human history, resulting in 160 to the upwards of 500 million fatalities, with more civilians than military personnel killed. Tens of millions of people died due to the genocides (including the Nettoyage and the Holocaust), premeditated death from starvation, massacres, and disease. Aircraft played a major role in the conflict, including in strategic bombing of population centers, the development of nuclear weapons, and the only uses of such in war.
The Second World War is generally considered to have begun on the 4th of July, 1939, with the coordinated invasions of Belgium and California by France and Aztlan and the subsequent declarations of war on them by the United Kingdom and Germany on the 6th. From middle 1951 to late 1953, in a series of campaigns and treaties, France came to control much of continental Europe while Mexico and the Free State of Cuba expanded to invasions on the Caribbean and Central America and formed the Grand Alliance together with Spain and China, along with other countries later on. Following the fall of Germany in mid-1952 and of California early that same year, the war’s three major areas of conflict became mostly between the Allies and single members of the Axis, with the Albish Empire in Europe, Japan in Asia and Oregon in the Americas. On October 30th, 1954, France led the European allied powers in an invasion of Russia and the Balkans, signing the deGaulle-Kemal Pact with the Turkish Nation where they officially divided the Balkans between each other, opening the Eastern Front, the largest land theatre in history, and trapping the allies, crucially the French Grand Armée, in a war of attrition.
China, which aimed to dominate Asia and the Pacific, was at war with the East Asian Coprosperity Sphere by in 1945 and had since early-1953 placed the Japanese Home Islands under a literal siege while expanding through continental and insular South Asia. In December 1954, three days after the death of Leonard of Albion during the Blitz, China, together with Aztlan and Cuba in the Americas, attacked with near-simultaneous offensives the territories of Albion and Brazil on Southeast Asia, the Central Pacific and South America, including and naval siege onto Singapore and an attack on the Braganza fleet at Fernando de Noronha. Following a Brazilian declaration of war against them, which followed an official one from Albion onto China, the European allied powers declared war on Brazil in solidarity with their ally. China soon invaded India and captured much of the Western Pacific, while Aztlan and Cuba captured much of northern South America, but their advances where halted in 1955 after losing the critical battles of Jakarta and Aves Island; later, France and Spain were defeated in North Africa and at key points in Eastern Europe. Key setbacks in 1957 – including a series of French defeats on the Eastern Front, the German Rebellion, the Axis invasions of the Low Countries and Gibraltar, and Axis offensives in the Pacific and Asia – cost the Allies its initiative and forced its members into strategic retreat on all fronts. In 1957, the Western Allies invaded Iberia and French-occupied Scandinavia, while the Russians and the Hapsburgs regained their territorial losses and turned towards France and its Allies. During 1957 and 1958, China suffered reversals across Asia, while the Axis crippled their navy and Russia entered the war against them by invading through Axis-friendly Mongolia; Aztlan and Cuba also saw reversals on their fronts as the USSA retook their lost territory while Brazil started taking the Caribbean Islands and advancing across Panama.
The war in Europe concluded with the liberation of French-occupied territories, and the invasion of France by the Axis and the combined efforts of Russia and Germany, culminating in the fall of Paris to Albo-Russo-German troops, the suicide of Louis Morél and the French unconditional surrender on January 10th, 1958. Turkey gave up on the war on February 1st when the military deposed the government, establishing the Turkish Junta. Following the Birmingham Declaration by the Axis on February 27th and the refusal of the remaining Allied powers to surrender on its terms, the Albish dropped the first atomic bomb on the Chinese city of Nanjing, on May 23rd, decapitating the Kuomintang’s high command and setting the stage for the Second Chinese Civil War; Brazil did similarly with the bombing of Cancun, on May 26th, of Veracruz, on May 27th, and of Guantanamo, on June 1st. Faced with imminent full-scale invasions by both the Brazilians and Russians, the destruction of its fleet at Cancun and the possibility of additional atomic bombings, Aztlan announced its intention to surrender on June 15th, cementing de facto total victory of the Axis in the Americas. Cuba, already a de facto Mexican satellite, held out, resulting on the invasion of its main island on June 21st by the Axis and the division of the state among them. In the wake of the war, France, Spain, Mexico and parts of China were occupied, and war crimes tribunals were conducted against many of their leaders. Despite their well-documented war crimes, mainly perpetrated in the Balkans and the Middle East, Turkish leaders and generals were often pardoned, thanks to diplomatic activities.
The Second World War changed the political alignment and social structure of the globe. The League of Nations (League) was established to foster international co-operation and prevent future conflicts, and the victorious great powers – Japan, Germany, Russia, the United States, Brazil, and Albion – became permanent members of its Directorate. Brazil and Albion emerged as rival superpowers, setting the state for the Cold War, while the USSA entered a period of political repression while rising in international influence, which would last until the 1980s. In the wake of European devastation, the influence of its great powers waned, triggering the second wave of decolonization of Africa and Asia. Most countries whose industries had been damaged moved towards economic recovery and expansion, while political integration, especially in Europe, began as an effort to forestall future hostilities, end pre-war enmities and forge a sense of common identity.
Considered by many as what established much of the modern world and as being responsible for some of history’s greatest technological and social advances, only a single state on earth continues to identify the war as not having ended.
 Which had been since the late 1930s under the rule of Louis Morél, who had in his youth served on the French army during the First World War and had in the interwar period risen as a political figure, becoming France’s de facto dictator in 1939 after using the Fourth Republic’s weak government and political divisions on his favor, he is known for both establishing Militantism as well as for being one of the greatest monsters in history, who established the Militant ideas of ethnic cleansing against minorities (like Jews, gays, blacks and Muslims) and Germanic peoples (ironic seeing as how his mother was born in Alsace as Hilda van der Horn, this besides the fact that the French’s forefathers were the Franks, a Germanic people)
 Under the rule of four major generals, the Tetrarchs, ever since the end in 1945 of the string of coups following the deposal of Emperor Augustín II by the military in 1933, after which the beloved imperial family fled to Venezuela (where the emperor’s sister was queen consort) while Mexico (Aztlan being the name given for the country’s ultranationalist phase) fell into political chaos after depending on them as a neutralizing and arbitrating figure since the 1870s
 Descending from the United States’ South, the Free State of Cuba could be known as a “diet-Confederacy”, seeing as it was a white supremacist state established by exiles from the pre-1920 US’ south who took over their old country’s de facto colony and puppet and established something that would nowadays be considered akin to the CSA, only on an island
 Which was nominally under the rule of Carlos V ever since the 1939 Regicide, which killed his parents and grandparents when the king himself was only a child, but seeing as he was mentally disabled (Carlos had been struck with a rock on the head at his baptism by an anarchist protester in 1934 and had a stunted mental development, he was in 1951 17 but had the mind of a 3-year-old) it was de facto ruled by his cabinet, a shadowy cabal of politicians and generals, who used him as a useful figurehead seeing as their dictatorship was identified by being a “royal dictatorship” under Carlos’ rule
 Which was under the rule of Chiang Kai-Shek’s Kuomitang ever since their victory in 1942 over the First Chinese Civil War, with the country being nominally a democracy but de facto being a Han-supremacist ultranationalist dictatorship which used the military and secret polices to both crack down on dissidents and on ethnic minorities
 Which would see the death of Kaiser Wolfgang II and the imprisonment of most of his family and the constituent monarchs (that hadn’t managed to escape to either friendly countries or Switzerland), which would later on see kangaroo courts and executions among them, including Wolfgang’s son, Friedrich III
 Although the Californian state (under the leadership of President Nixon) managed to remain standing in the Sierra Nevada under Oregon’s protection, the absolute majority of the country as well as its populational centers fell under Aztlan’s control, where they would soon enact policies not dissimilar from their doings in their own territories against their Anglican population
 Following the defeat and conquest of Manchuria and most of Korea, Japan was the last one standing on their alliance, and following the Chinese conquest of Formosa had to stand basically alone on her home islands while the Chinese navy and air force took their turns bombing the crap out of her. Through it all, while his homeland was being devastated, Emperor Hirohito stayed on it, at the most moving from the Imperial Palace in Tokyo to smaller or underground complexes when bombing as at its highest. Japanese determination during the Siege, which ended when Brazil and the Royal Navy came to the rescue of their ally in 1955, is often remembered by the sheer impressiveness of it, as, even while their factories and buildings were being burned, they still remained chugging forward as if not bothered by it, and when fears of an amphibian invasion started, the government did not blink an eye before starting military training for the masses
 Which is considered by many as being a turning point for the Empire as it was considered something of a last straw for the Albish, who became as if possessed they took a dedication for the war that, while present before, hadn’t been in such levels
 Which would see the deaths of a fifth of the island’s population and the imprisonment of King Albert and his wife, while his two daughters continued serving on the navy from Australia (where they had been at the time of the siege’s beginning)
 Establishing the Indian Republic, a collaborator state under the rule of Subhas Chandra Bose, who would later on be executed for his actions both in support of the Allies and for his involvement in war crimes committed by the Indian National Army, including the mass killing of Muslims on Bengal
 Two major ones being the crossing of the Dnieper at the Battle of Kiev and the Battles of Belgrave and Debrecen, who respectively stopped French advances into Russia and the Balkans by weakening their stride as the Russians and Hapsburgs started regrouping behind their defensive lines at the Dnieper, the Danube and the Carpathians
 A major one being the Battle of Minsk, which lasted nearly a year as both sides fought building by building
 Lead by Adolf Schicklgruber-Hiedler, an immigrant from Upper Austria who had been naturalized German following his entrance to the Kaiser’s Army in the First World War and who during the interwar period had married Helene Derzbacher, the daughter of a jewish moneylender, and had become the owner of a beerhall in Munich and a conservative politician. Following the fall of Germany in 1952, his establishment became an unspoken center for the city’s resistance, and Adolf used his small but present military knowledge and friendship with some generals now living in hiding or on Free Germany to support them, becoming the German Resistance (and later Rebellion)’s leader, including housing Kaiser Friederike following her escape from Dachau. Following the war, Adolf, who had been growing sick with a shaking disease, was the one of the first individuals to be granted the title of “Hero of the Fatherland” and was later given the nobility rank of “Fürst”. When he died in the early 1960s, he was buried on Valhalla in Berlin
 Which saw heavy damages in Rotterdam on the former and the near razing to the ground of the city on the latter, as it involved a large amphibian invasion following the Spanish conquest of the Rock in early 1952
 Which saw the freeing of German Oceania and the comebacks of the Albish and Dutch on South Asia
 A military dictatorship that has remained in power over Turkey for the past 60 years, part of the reason why the Axis even accepted their semi-conditional surrender (the Junta leaders basically said that while they could take the deposed Turkish leaders they would not permit an occupation of their pre-war territory) was the agreement that the Turkish would retreat from all their invaded territory, including the states on Anatolia that they had already annexed, or they would be force to
 Which is technically still up and running since the Kuomitang still remains denying that it has officially ended (reason why they have identifying all wars that have come since as being just a “resume of the war” even though the rest of the world rightly identify them as new conflicts)
 The Albish took control of the Guantanamo Bay Area, Brazil established the Kingdom of Cuba on the southeast while the USSA established the State of Cuba on the northwest as a part of their Southern Commonwealth; following the 1982 Crisis the state was annexed into the Kingdom of Cuba after the island had been mostly divided for 2 decades. Guantanamo, in modern times a port metropolis after developing from the slums that made much of its area outside of the Base and port, remains under control of Albion, being a county-status-city within the Home Island’s integrated territories
 All of which would have effects to the nations that came after:
- France was divided into four zones of control – Russia (where the modern kingdom of Champagne is), Albion (Northern France and modern Provence), Brazil (Aquitaine) and Germany (Burgundy) – who have directly resulted on the modern divisions of the region, as the Russian zone became the separate state of Champagne under the Russian Emperor’s brother-in-law, the German and Brazilian ones became their respective hereditary republics under political favorites, and the Albish became the kingdom of Provence under Empress Jessamine’s aunt’s husband, the modern Fifth Republic and the Republic of Brittany (which like Aquitaine and Burgundy is de facto hereditarily ruled by the family of a political favorite who became its first president)
- The Kingdom of Spain was divided between seven zones of administration – Albion (most of the modern Spanish State, Southern Spanish Sahara, Andorra and the cities of Ceuta and Melilla), Portugal (Galicia), Brazil (Navarre and the Canary Islands, although it held sway over the entire peninsula), the Hapsburgs (Aragon) and Morocco (Spanish North Africa), Germany (Spanish Equatorial Africa) and Mauritania (Oran) –, who have mostly corresponded to the modern states of the region (although not to their allegiances)
- From Albion’s zone was born the modern Spanish Federation, with her various subnational monarchies (who outside of Asturias, ruled by the heir to Spain, are all ruled by branches of the Spanish bourbon’s expansive family tree); the two city-states of the Rift (Ceuta, a directorial republic, and Melilla, who is a principality under a branch of the Orléans); the modern Principality of Andorra, who for the first time on centuries has its hereditary prince live locally (after the Boubon-Grimaldis divided their inheritance between it and Provence); and the Kingdom of Adrar, born from the major emirate in the Spanish Saharan Protectorate gaining the rule over the entire thing- From Portugal’s zone was born the modern kingdom of Galicia under the Miguelist branch (originally it would go to the Bourbon-Braganzas, but the Prince of Couto Misto declined due to his subject’s desires to remain independent and so his sister, whose husband was the Miguelist heir, was given Galicia)- From Brazil’s zone were born the modern kingdoms of Navarre and the Canaries, both ruled by branches of Bourbons- From the Hapsburgs’ zone was born the modern Kingdom of Aragon, given to one of their Archdukes whose mother was a daughter of Alfonso XIII and whose wife was Carlos V’s sister, Infanta Maria Genoveva- The Moroccan zone was, in turn, annexed on its entirety by Morocco shortly after it was established, reason why they periodically still lay a claim to the two Rift City States event though the three all known it is simply symbolic, with them being close economic partners and the current Moroccan consort being a Melillan princess by birth- The German zone over Spanish Equatorial Africa became the modern Kingdom of Biafra, ruled by the only protestant branch of the House of Bourbon (resulting from the fact that the region was majority protestant due to some lucky missionaries and the Bourbon prince set to become its king was fine with converting)- The Mauritanian zone, finishing things, became the modern Kingdom of Wahran, under the rule of, of all people, one of the branches of the House of Savoy, who seems to have more luck with gaining new thrones than actually retaking their ancestral domains- Mexico was divided between the largest zone held by Brazil with three peripheral zones held by California, Albion and the USSA; while the USSA would annex their zone (which comprehended mostly Texas), Brazil, California and Albion reunited theirs into the modern Mexican Empire under the rule of Augustín III (who would only live for 3 years on it before being assassinated and giving start to the state’s most recent civil war), who was a close relative of Empress Victoria of Brazil and had been partly raised in Rio, the main trait was that the Californian and Albish zone became the modern autonomous kingdoms of Mexico
- Although originally planning for a large-scale occupation of China, in the end the Axis (specifically Japan, Russia, Albion and Germany, while Brazil was fine staying on the sidelines), already having to administrate over large zones of control and seeing the insanity that the Second Civil War was going toward, decided that it was on their best interest to just look to the other side and focus only on the areas they were truly interested:
- The Albish, besides retaking their old territories, established an authority over the ports of Southern China, which would be returned to the Qi Dynasty (on itself born in part due to Albion’s support of the King of Canton) in 1972 following the historical Canton Accords, and made a sort-of-protectorate out of Tibet, which lasted for some decades- The Germans did similarly, although instead of taking over they established the client Kingdom of Hainan under the House of Zhao (who, as direct descendants of the Song Emperors, sometimes also identify as the “Later Song Dynasty”) while only retaining direct control over their old territory of Guangzhouwan- The Japanese, on other hand, mostly focused on establishing a sphere of influence and allies, only reannexing their lost territories while remaking Manchuria and supporting the establishment of Later Dayan, Zhili and the Wang Dynasty- The Russian’s, finishing things up, just focused on their newly retaken lands in Outer Manchuria, which would later become the modern autonomous Tsardom, and on supporting their influenced states of Mongolia and Tuva while also backing the North-Chinese States with Japan In the end only the officials that had been deposed when the Junta took over ended up punished, while most middle members of the army and officials who supported the coup, while maybe placed under show trials, ended up unscathed and often lived long lives as figures on the Turkish government afterwards.
 The war saw the USSA turn to a jingoistically nationalist era as the military and often nationalistic political groups gained more power, with Secretary Randolph’s death in 1963 the nation’s future moves were almost guaranteed, since without him was no-one to stop the tides, and by 1975 the nation had already come into being something akin to OTL Stalinist Russia
 Which would see the Dutch and German empires mostly separate into independent states under relatives with smaller bits that remained attached to the metropolis, while the Albish finished their process of federalization as most of the empire’s remaining colonies either became independent states within the Commonwealth or Dominions and Kingdoms within Albion
 The tales of the atrocities committed by the Allies caused the members of the Axis, more often than not, to take turn for going more liberal in areas their societies considered completely acceptable beforehand after seeing the rational maximum they could go, with homosexuality, for example, being decriminalized in Albion in 1960, less than two years after the war’s end; in the war's relation to scientific advancements one of the most known is rocket technology and space travel, as withouth the advancements on the way of fuel, nuclear energy and propulsion during the war's race for better missiles, aerieal vehicles and bombs man's first steps on the moon probably wouldn't have happened in 1961.
