    French Communard trenches (1939)

    Failure of Flanders-Wallonie Strategic Offensive and German Race to the Sea forced Jacobin government to conscript as many men and women as possible to stop the counterattack. Kaiserliche Armee encountered strong resistance from Syndicalist fighters composed from the Union of Britain's conscripts and volunteers from across the world. At the beginning of the war, both sides expected a quick victory - Communards pushed their tanks through Flanders Wallonie to invade Rheinland and ignite socialist uprising, while German counterattacked them and seized Northern France. Battle of France ended after six months, when German forces conducted offensive on the whole frontline, inflicted massive casualties and occupied whole country after rapid Blitzkrieg campaign. Two million French and one million German soldiers died due to Battle of France.​

    Japanese tank during battle of Batavia (1941)

    After lost war against the Soviet Union, Japanese Empire fell into the hands of expansionist, nationalist regime that started rapid industrialization of the Home Islands, militarization of society and aggressive war to establish new Peace under the Sun in Asia. Phillippines, left without protection after American Civil War, were the first target for Japanese war machine, followed by Dutch East Indies (weakened by the loss of mainland Netherlands to the syndicalist revolution) and Legation Cities in China. Empire of India, that arose after Princely Federation defeated both Delhi and Communard regimes, was defeated in the long war of 1943-1947. All these regions were made into puppet states, ruled by the Japanese Emperor with some rights to autonomy.​

During his bloody reign (he had caused approximately 70-100 million deaths), he was heavily supported by the German Empire (which lost their colonial possesions in China due to Chinese republican Revolution of 1936) with military and economic advisors, equipment, engineers and great amount of money to counter Soviet influence in the area.​

    Kempetai officers.

    Secret police of the Imperial Japanese Army was reinforced by the National Populist government in early 1940s. Dreaded force would has right to arrest any civillian or army officer, torture to gain any credbile information and - in case of war - execute those who were deemed as treasonous. In occupied territory, Kempetai took part in various genocides to eradicate people deemed as unnecessary to the New Asian Order and even assisted Mad Baron Roman von Ungern-Sternberg in his infamous "campaigns". Since 1950s, their activities on the Home Islands has been overtaken by the Imperial Japanese State Security Commission and limited to the occupied territories.

    Japanese landing on the Moon (2010)

    First Japanese landing on the Moon has shocked the world. While Imperial Japan was sending artificial satellites and limited manned orbital missions since late 1960s, it was unexpected from them to launch lunar landing mission, especially after period of civil unrest and constitutional reforms that transformed Japan into modern country during 1980s.​

    Munich Nuclear Power Plant disaster (September 2, 1986)

    On September 2, 1980 (celebration of the Sedan Day), during a security test reactor No. 4 melted down, while explosion destroyed containment building, exposing millions Germans to radiation. Steam explosion that followed shortly after melting, rendered whole hundreds of square kilometers uninhabitable for next centuries.

    Supervisor of the test, Anatol Datlov lost his son to the radiation poisoning (ironically, coming from the Reactor No. 4 of the same power plant) and became close to the underground syndicalist organizations in Bavaria. It is possible that nuclear disaster was an act of sabotage.

    Billions of Reichsmarks will be spent on the clean-up and evacuation of Bavaria.

    May Day demonstration in Paris (May 1, 1987)

    Twenty years after May of 1968, ban on socialist, social democratic, French nationalist and syndicalist political parties was lifted. On April 21, 1987 Socialist Union of France won 40% of seats in the French National Assembly. Despite being largest party in the parliament, French President appointed National Union's (ruling since end of the Second Weltkrieg) representative as a Prime Minister.

    Falling standard of living, economic crisis, authoritarian democracy and repressions from the government had caused 300,000 French to take over Paris streets in the largest demonstration ever held here.

    [​IMG]

    After initial setbacks, government imposed martial law in France and used Motorized Reserves to disperse protests. Despite imposition of total control in Paris, countryside remained a fighting zone between protestors and military forces. Growing military expedintures and austerity policy imposed to pay the war reparations to Germany (and fund clean-up of the Munich Power Plant disaster) will anger more and more Frenchmen. Both syndicalists and nationalists became more popular among the population.

Jacobin Jacques Leclerc (Donald Sumpter) announces unilateral support for the project of massive resistance against the government, formation of underground Red Army of Workers' Soldiers' and Peasants' and beginning of the spread of pro-Syndicalist propaganda.

    Reign of Legasov over the Soviet secret police (1981-1998) was characterized by intense battle of intelligence agencies between Reichspakt and Fourth Internationale. Millions Germans believe that he is responsible for an act of sabotage that could cause the Munich Nuclear Power Plant accident.

    Chairman Legasov depicts Soviet strategy towards Reichspakt - no tolerance for those who murder workers in the streets, no acceptance of any peace deal, weakening German puppet states in order to draw German attention, resources and manpower towards them while leaving heartland ripe for socialism.

    Peaceful demonstrations in Leipzig (1989)

    Three years after Munich nuclear disaster, economy was in disarray. Over eight millions people have been displaced in other lands of Germany, with some of Bavarians and Austrians fleeing towards Kingdom of Czechia, Hungary or Croatia. Cost of clean-up nearly bankrupted German state, which began to demand payback of whole war reparation from France and post-British states, while imposing greater costs on Reichspakt countries for German bases on their soil. Space program was halted, naval arms race with CSA was reduced but still costed a lot of money. Growing insurgency in France, social upheavals in other puppet states started to be too much for national economy to sustain. Extraordinary conscription for use of soldiers in Munich clean-up angered the youth who did not want to die of radiation poisoning. On 1989 millions of Germans disgruntled with conservative government took the streets in Leipzig, with local German garrison refusing to supress them.
