The tower garrison, a mixture of teenage Hitler Youth and dedicated fascist volunteers from around Europe, had to be eliminated to the last man.
 
Probably the individual weapons more than the vehicle mounted ones.
Even those didn't last long. Once incendiary ammunition became common you didn't need a dedicated flame vehicle and much the same will happen ITTL. That said in a world where planetary bombardment is legal and acceptable I suspect the use of WP rounds to be considered okay far longer than it has been OTL.

Tsar Andrei I of Russia

Andrei Alexaandrovich was member of Romanov family which ruled Russia over 300 years. After revolutin he like many of other his relatives fled to France. He later moved to Britain where he created close relationships with British royal family. In 1950's during Hot War he got bigger role on Russian emigrants and he was too seen as potential tsar for future Russia even despite him being quiet far from main lineage and he wasn't married with royal. But eventually many monarchists aaccepted him since they didn't feel Vladimir Kirillovich, closest male lineage relative of Nicholas II, being suitable as tsar of new Russia. Whenn Germany was defaeated and Russia was liberated, Allies begun to prepar restoration of monarchy. November 7, 1960, 43rd anniversary of October Revolution, he was declared as tsar of Russia and Russia became British style constitutional monarchy.

Andrei's job wasn't easy even if he was just ceremonial head of state. He got horribly ruined nation where nearby whole population remembered only just Stalin's terror and monstrous nazi tyranny. Whole natiopn was basically re-built from scratch since so many millions were killed, lot of heritage lost and many cities were destroyed. Futhermore many Russians had deep traumas from nazi reign when they were just slaves and now them had learn to live new free society. There was too much of famines even despite lot of aid by foreign countries and international organisations.

But Andrei I's reign saw anyway some success. Cities couldn't be anymore built to their former glory and even Moscow and Petrograd (since St. Petersburg is German origin name, Russian didn't want adopt old name and held WW1 era name) are just shadows from their old days even yet in 2021. Moscow anyway was somhow managed to built new capital and in 1975 there was too constructed New Winter Palace altough it is not such massive and magnificent than old one. Andrei I too made several visits to foreign nations and helped to create new relationships with neighbors. Only relationships with Soviet Union maintained relly bad The tsar died pretty popular tsar in 1981.

Russian army patrolling Russo-Soviet border in 2012

Already since creation of new Russian state in 1960 Russo-Soviet relationships have been queiet bad. Only just due strict international order and permanent internal chaos of Soviet state have been averted things escalating as full-scale war. There has been anyway small border incidents through decades. Another issue has been occasional refugee waves when thousands of Soviet civilians are fleeing from instable and almost anarchist Soviet Union even despite that Russia is still quiet poor and has not even by this day recovered from nazi tyranny.

Col. John Glenn and Major Ted Williams, USMC give an after action report aboard the USS Crown Point (CV-44), December 1958. Glenn and Williams, two of the most famous Marine pilots of the war, spent a significant amount of time as wingmen between 1957-1959.
Glenn, who first gained fame as the USMC’s first double jet ace and later reached legendary status as the first American in space, often said that Williams was the most skilled pilot he ever served with.
Williams, a reservist called back to duty after the St. Patrick’s Day raids, was a famed outfielder for the Boston Red Sox who lost nearly 9 full seasons to military service between tours in the Pacific and European theaters. Despite a 6 year absence from the major leagues, a 40 year old Williams hit .316 with 29 home runs for the 1960 Red Sox.

Man, you subject one city to orbital bombardment...
 
250px-Mussolini_biografia.jpg


Benito Mssolini was one of closest ally of Hitler and nazi Germany. Altough Italy was clearly victorious on Europe during WW2, him had just watch fall of colonial empire in Italy. Some archive records prove that Mssolini planned invasion to Egypt but Hitler made clearly that there he would be alone so Mussolini focused only to Balkans.

Altough Mussolini enacted harsh antisemitic legistature he never hand Italian Jews to Germans. Mussolini had too plans for change Italy as republic but these attempts were total failures. He too tried make massive reconstruction works around Italy which led to serious economy troubles.

Mussolini died suddenly from heart attack in 1953. There is some rumors about poisoning but for such claims are not proven. Mussolini wsa buried to his mausoleum in center of Rome. That has been target of controversy years after Hot War but in 1987 Italian government ordered his remnants to be removed from his mausoleum and Mussolini was re-buried to his birth town Predappio.

440px-Ugo_Cavallero.jpg


Ugo Cavallero had notable career on Italian army during Mussolini's regime. In 1940's he was some time under Mussolini's disfavor, probably due his failure on save Italian Libya. He anyway later managed to climb back to Mussolini's favor. After Mussolin's death in 1953 there was power struggle but Cavallero managed to win that. Whilst the struggle some fsacists like Farinacci were purged from fascist party and for example Farinacci found two new holes on his head.

During Hot War phase Cavallero tried defend Italy against Allies but eventually Allies managed to land to mainland Italy. In 1958 Cavallero had begun secret negotiations with Allies. Details are still under dusk but it is assumed that king Umberto II, leadeship of Catholic Church and some moderate fascists like Grandi and Galeazzo talked the duce take steps towards peace. On Decmeber 5, 1958 Italy announced unconditional surrending. Cavallero stepped down and king Umberto II called provisional government.

Cavallero was later sentenced to prison for war crimes to life sentence but was released already in 1962 due high age, poor health and good behave on prison. Cavallero died in 1965 from heart attack.

Umberto_II%2C_1944.jpg


Umberto II became king of Italy in 1947. Mussolini tried soon after his ascension abolish monarchy but that was total failure. There has been some rumors Umberto II being long-time anti-fascist. Most of Hot War he remained quiet invisible and non-important person. There is anyway some evidence that he might had helped secretly some underground anti-fascist movements. During Hot War the king was even futher against fascist regime and the war. There is not public records about details but with support of Catholic Church Umberto II managed to speak government begin peace talks with Allies. After official surrending of Italy Umberto II established provisional government under occupation forces of Allies led by lord Louis Mountbatten, uncle of Duke of Edinburgh. PG helped transfer Italy to democracy. There was too some spaks over abolition of monarchy but for that wasn't much of public support, probably due the king's role on ending of war in Italy and his strong support for transition to democracy.

Rest of the king's reign saw recovery of Italy and full democratisation of the country. Umberto II was quiet popular king. He died in 1983 in Rome.
 
Jerusalem, capital of Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan

Jerusalem was after WW1 capital of Palestine Mandate. There was attempts to establish Jewish state on early 1960's but that was total failure since from nazi occupied regions wasn't enough of surviving Jews. This was basically end of Zionism and Palestine was incorporated to Jordan. Government and royal family soon moved there from Amman.
If the Hashemite Kingdom took over the whole of Mandate Palestine and made Jerusalem its capital, would it not be more likely to call itself the Hashemite Kingdom of Palestine rather than Jordan?

Wasn't Palestine usually defined as region of immediate coastal Levantine but not places on eastside of Jordan River? And I think that Jordan is still quiet logical name since it is after the river and OTL Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan was known before independence as Transjordan "Beyond Jordan River".

Given what I've heard of what happened to Berlin in this thread I have to wonder how many of the soliders that fought there are still alive and in perfect health from what's been said its a damned dead zone that is pretty much high octane nightmare fuel for anyone.

True. Even youngest veterans should be already around 80 years old so I don't expect many being anymore alive and even somehow good health for their age.

Just wondering how many former residents of Berlin are still alive. How many even managed to leave the city?

Death toll was somewhere around 8% so many got away and there should be lots of survivors. That said the relative lack of desire to help Germany and the many, many secondary illnesses and radiation effects have probably reduced the survivor numbers substantially over the years.

Debate over the placement and design of a WWII memorial in Washington DC lasted nearly two decades before finally being dedicated in November 1982 by President Hansen. Located south of the Reflecting Pool near what was then called West Potomac Park, the memorial consists of 19 steel statues depicting an platoon of American servicemen on patrol in the French countryside. The memorial quickly became one of the most visited in DC and was later complimented by the initially controversial relocation of the Pacific War Memorial from its original location in Rosslyn in 1991. The area surrounding the Tidal Basin became unofficially known as Memorial Row with the dedication of the FDR’s presidential memorial in 1998 and the long delayed (due to longstanding litigation attempting to prevent the dredging of Washington Channel) dedication of the USS Maine (BB-69) museum in 2002.

The Empire State Building aflame, March 17, 1954. The fabled skyscraper was struck on its north side by a Ju-688 bomber that had become disoriented attempting to escape interception by a US Navy F-9 Panther operating off the USS Guadalcanal. All 14 Luftwaffe crewmen were killed, along with 16 office workers on the 80th floor and 3 civilians struck by falling debris on 33rd street. The lower floors reopened within a week, but full repair of the damaged upper floors were not completed until after the German surrender.
