Paul von Lettow-Vorbeck of the East : A story of World War 2 in Tibet

So the Amerikabomber and fixing the Enigma machine, and all the different Nazi race policies are a result of the effectiveness of guerrilla war vs. the Allies/ colonial powers being demonstrated and the war being drawn out longer?
Butterfly effect can influence people’s thinking
 
To be clear, you can write the timeline however you want.

I understand the butterfly effect to mean that in a system with a high degree of complexity or chaos, like weather or history, small changes in the initial state can create large changes downstream. But these changes have a mechanistic chain of causality.

I find, as a reader, that the man-of-few-words writing style leaves me unsatisfied as to how later events were caused by preceding ones. Your timeline list gives a series of dots, but as a reader I cannot connect them.

Going back to the ranking of probability that I posted before, the index rank stories that closely follow a chain of causality from the initial POD as more plausible, even if the POD is a weird one.

Although you might not intend it, the lack of detail make this timeline look like a grab bag of unrelated “Germany does better, Allies do not react” changes. This kind of storytelling ranks lower on the plausibility index.

One remedy might be to connect the dots.

May I ask what you exactly mean when you say that? What did they exactly get wrong? I'm just curious.
As I mentioned, his claim that pressure from Washington needed to be applied to Canberra to have Australia further participate in the war were unfounded. The American decision to limit Australian participation was based upon the idea that America did not agree with the ANZAC Pact and did not want to share any deliberations WRT a possible peace settlement with another power...
