Reich Bullet Train (Side note: I figured that the Reich in this timeline would be like a very conservative OTL nordic state, as in strong welfare (descended from Bismarck's philosophy of offering more than the leftists have to offer in elections) yet strong militarist and traditional/"family values" culture.) America, while fairly German influenced I think will be fairly liberal.

German trained and equiped Indian National Army Sikhs, notably the style and doctrine of the Heer was adopted as the brutal Fascist British colonial legacy was meant to be thrown away additionally, German aid was welcomed as Japan provided a threat as well as German industrials investing could boost the economy.

American Army shortly after Second Weltkrieg, German influence is clear (as in most armies, the really only rivaling global style/doctrine is Japanese)
formation.jpg

Though clear German influence shows, the US army dress uniforms are far less "pimped out" than their Germany counterparts, who take pride in their Prussian heritage often with extravagance. Nevertheless, the partnership is rather effective, with military co operation, shared technologies, and additionally joint exercises to deal with the Empire of Japan's threat and joint fear of any revitalized Russia.

Early Kalterkreig infantry gear, notably using the early STG 44 assault rifle would be replaced by the STG 3 (ATL G3). Camo was famous, introduced late weltkreig but best known as European autumn attire for German field uniform.

However most kalterkreig Mittelafrika askaris wear tropical palmenmuster introduced soon after this camo (worn form a soldering drinking from a bowl on the previous page)
 
The first contingent of German soldiers marching in Oslo after arriving to stem the Entente invasion; circa February, 1942. Although many in the Norwegian Government were wary of asking the Germans for help, it was responding the outrage of the Norwegian populace who viewed the Entente invasion as a direct affront on Norwegian sovereignty.

A distressed mother on her cellphone upon hear about a "shooting" at the Thomas E. Dewey Elementary School in Boston Massachusetts, circa December 8th, 2012. It was quickly discovered that the perpetrators were militants of the Canadian Liberation Movement, who took all of the students and staff as hostages and demanded that the local authorities bring a news camera into the building and they would release a quarter of the hostages. After that was taken of care of, the ring leader who identified himself as Andrew Palmer (real name Joseph Sanderson) announced on national television his demands to the Federal Government that they have 72 hours to enter talks with the CLM about creating an independent Canada and to release all CLM members in Federal Custody. Palmer would then state that if these demands were not met, that all of the remaining hostages in the school are going to be executed. After about 68 hours of a tense standoff between the terrorists and Federal and Local Law Enforcement, the Federal Counter-Terrorist organization known as Taskforce 12 breeched the school and the resulting firefight would see 18 out of the 20 terrorists killed, 15 children and 3 adults killed with many more wounded, and 2 of the counter-terrorists dead and 5 wounded. Most to the casualties to the hostages were from the counter-terrorists, which caused a great controversy by the media in the following weeks to the incident. So much so, that the head of the Federal Department of National Security, who was Eric Holder, was forced to resign days after the shootout.

Note: I assume that Wilhelm (IV) lived in TL-191 and became the next Kaiser after Wilhelm III in 1951. I made guesses about how Wilhelm IV's heir would look like. However, I think that Louis Ferdinand's line would be relatively unchanged

Map of Europe just before the start of the Second Great War
Note: Credit goes to Condottiero from DeviantArt for the original template. I also used some ideas from EmperorTigerstar. I made some closer-to-reality changes to the map and included some nations that briefly existed between the late 1910's to early 1920's. Perhaps some of them may have survived a little while longer, if not for the rest of the 20th Century. I don't know if the Soviet Union would have existed had the Central Powers won, but it's stated in Dr. Turtledove's books that the Russian Empire is still around.

Light-grey colored nations are those that are German puppet states to varying degrees.
Light-green colored nations are those that are Ottoman puppet states to varying degrees.

Fuschia colored nations are those that are Austro-Hungarian puppet states to varying degrees.

von Richthofen TL-191.png

A photo of Kaiserliche Luftwaffe General Manfred von Richthofen, circa 1940.

Following his extensive career in the First Great War, famed ace Manfred von Richthofen (nicknamed the Red Baron) would stay in the Imperial German Air Service as the commander of Jagdgeschwader 1 until leaving the military in 1920 and subsequently went into the publishing occupation for three years. During this time tragedy would strike his family, being that his younger brother named Lothar was killed while test flying a new fighter prototype outside of Berlin and in 1921 would be married to a noblewoman named Elsa Marie von Griesenberg. Unsatisfied with his new career, von Richthofen would join the newly formed Kaiserliche Luftwaffe as a Major, where he became a senior flight instructor which he occupied until 1934 when he was promoted to the rank of Generalmajor. Throughout the 1930s, he sponsored a program to modernize Germany's fighter force and was even made a military attache to the United States of America for a brief period in 1938. During the the early days of the Second Great War, von Richthofen would command Fliegerkorps 7, which was stationed at first in Bavaria before being transferred to Norway in early 1942. His unit would famously have the tails of their airplanes painted red as a nod to their commander's nickname and they would become known as either "The Flying Circus" after the original unit that von Richthofen commanded during the previous war, or simply as the "Red Tails."

Fleigerkorps 7 would play an important role in the Norwegian Campaign by providing friendly ground troops with air-support and by attacking British air, land, and naval forces which contributed to the defeat of the Radius Forces in Norway. During the Norwegian campaign, Richthofen would personally fly on several sorties in an Fw-190 as a he preferred to fly with his men to battle, which he shot down 13 Spitfires and 6 other British aircraft, thus adding 19 more victories to the previous 61 kills from the earlier Great War. After returning to Germany, von Richthofen would given the command of all German Air Units on the Western Front under Luftflotte Gruppe A until the very end of the war in July of 1944 and even played a role in the planning for the superbombings of Britain and Paris. From 1945 to 1948, von Richthofen was made the Reichsmarschall of the Luftwaffe before being made the Minister of War, to which he served from 1948 to his retirement in 1953. In 1955, von Richthofen would officially run for Chancellor under the National Liberal Party but was defeated by Konrad Adenauer in the elections. During his retirement, he would work on his autobiography titled Pilot, Ace, General, and Baron which was eventually published in 1962 in the German Empire. Manfred would be interviewed numerous times during the 1960s and 1970s on documentaries about the Great Wars and on himself, and would be involved in the making of the 1977 TV miniseries The Red Baron (which was based on his autobiography) as an adviser. Manfred von Richthofen would eventually pass away from old age on August 11th, 1991 at the ripe old age of 99 and would leave behind two sons (Karl (1922-2014) and Georg (1925-1944)) and three daughters (Ursula (1922-1998), Katherine (1924-2017), and Gerda (1926-2011.))

I have my personal doubts about Cyrus and Egypt coming under Ottoman influence. They got a million problems to deal with, and Egypt and Cyprus only add gas to the fire.

The Great @Joshua Ben Ari have spoken on this.

1: Maybe making it clearer that the Netherlands is under German economic domination.

2: Federal Austria, I'm not sure how likely that is as there was little support for it pre-war and post-war Austria would not be willing to give an inch.

3: I'm not sure about the Caucuses, however. I doubt the Mountainous Republic or Georgia would survive as independent states with Russia glaring down at them, but Azerbaijan likely would manage to survive. Armenia might just be annexed entirely by the Ottomans rather than be spun off as their own state, as the Armenian genocide ramps up.

4: Tunisia might be ceded to the Italians (or sold, either or), while the Germans might push for an independent Morocco or replacing the French influence on the country with their own.

Yeah, there were some countries that I had no idea what their fates would be in a Central Powers Victory.

I initially was going to label this as an immediate Post-1917 map and make a comment about how some of the victors of the war would gradually lose control of their puppet states as time passed.

Maybe Cyprus and Egypt would have gained their own independence decades sooner, similar to my own head canon about Jamaica, British Honduras, and other Caribbean islands.

1) I forgot about the possibility of the Netherlands being under German influence. Probably because I didn't view them as being a puppet state, per se.

2) I didn't want to erase the subdivisions of the Empire due to curiosity. I rarely see them get mentioned and labeled.

It may not have been federalized during the interbellum years, but eventually, there would have been some kind of plan in order to keep the empire alive. That or perhaps it just gradually falls apart, instead of crashing immediately and completely like its OTL ending.

3) Another wild card event I chose. Perhaps they eventually collapse, who knows?

I originally wanted Armenia to be fully independent, but I changed my mind when I realized that the Ottomans wouldn't completely leave it alone due to the ongoing and more successful genocide at the time.

4) I don't know what extra territory in Africa the Germans would have taken other than the ones that make up MittelAfrika. All of your choices are plausible; I just chose to play it a little bit safe. If anything, maybe I show Germany having way too much influence in Europe.
 

A painting of the Imperial Russian Battlecruiser Aleksandr Nevsky underway in the Gulf of Finland, circa December of 1941. During the Second Great War, the Nevsky would be one of two capital ships to be completed from the Russian Naval Expansion program of the 1930s, the other being the Battleship Imperator Nikolai I. During the 2nd Great War, the ship would clash with the Imperial German Navy in the Baltic before being sunk by the Luftwaffe at 59N and 23E on September 30th, 1943. The wreck is was designated as a war grave by the European Military Remains Commission following her discovery in 1992 and now being protected by the Finnish Navy.

Medicare is the name given to the single-payer health care system in place in the United States. Signed into law in 1962 by President Hubert Humphrey as the Universal Health-care for America Act, Medicare is one of the most popular health care programs in the world, and typically takes up the most of the federal budget yearly alongside the military. The US welfare state as a whole is renowned for its generosity, influenced heavily by the German Empire (albeit without denying the Socialist elements). It has served as a model for other countries worldwide.
