Photos from Featherston's Confederacy/ TL-191

I wonder what Hermann Goering would be doing in the TL-191 universe
He was probably in the Luftwaffe during the second great war, might have even have been in the Luftwaffe in between the wars as well, a career officer.
He probably never got addicted to morphine either.

Well he likely continued serving under the Red Baron until the end of the war, stayed in the Air Force, rose the ranks and possibly eventually commanded a wing or air fleet in SGW
In both Great Wars, Russia had plenty of Armenian volunteers to fill out it's ranks, particularly when it came to fighting the Turks whenever the war against the Germans took priority. in both wars, they fought in the Caucasus against the Turks in vain attempts to carve out a nation for themselves in the Caucasus. When Armenian manpower was depleted at the end of the Great War, they were simply recharged by Armenian refugees fleeing from the gneocide the Turks were carrying out.

In the Second Great War, though the Russians strictly prohibited such tactics, some Armenian units turned their troops into people bombs to use against the Ottomans, especially in the latter stages of the war just before the superbombing of Petrograd, with some Armenian troops even continuing to fight the Ottomans even after Russia's surrender to Germany.


Armenian troops during the First Great War


Armenian troops during the Second Great War.


Limonka grenades, a favourite weapon of the Armenians, particularly when it came to people bombings. It was surprisingly easy to turn a soldier into a people bomb. Soldiers had limonka grenades tied to a belt which was hidden under their uniform. All a soldier had to do was pull a pin and the grenades, with 60 grams of explosives each, would go off like a domino effect.


Confederate Admirals during the Second Great War


Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, at Confederate Naval Headquarters in Charleston, circa 1942.

Born in 1885 in Fredericksburg Texas, Nimitz served as a naval officer during the First Great War as commanding officer of the destroyer CSS Lucas M. Perry and the armored cruiser CSS Judah P. Benjamin in the Atlantic Fleet. In the years before the Rise of Featherston, Nimitz would the commander of the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base from 1922 to 1930 before commanding the 1st Cruiser Squadron for two years before being appointed as commander of the Confederate Atlantic Fleet, in turn he would occupy this position until 1939 when he was appointed by Jake Featherston as Chief of Naval Operations. Nimitz would be commander of the Confederate Navy throughout the 2nd Great War until the very end, when he ordered his navy to stand down and to surrender to the USN. After the war, Nimitz would be president of the Sailors of the Confederacy, a branch of the Sons of the Confederacy movement from his release from prison in 1955 to 1961. He would die from pneumonia in 1966 in his apartment in the city of Houston, Texas. He would be remembered as one of the least worse Confederate Commanders during the SGW in spite of him declaring a policy of unrestricted submarine warfare.

In 1906 as part of his studies at the University of Atlanta, he would enroll at the Confederate Army Academy, but would instead be enrolled and enter the Naval Officer's Academy at Charleston. During his time there, it was discovered that he had a horrid hearing problem, but this was wavered due to the Confederate need for officers. Following his graduation, McCain would be posted aboard the new dreadnought CSS Domination of the Atlantic Fleet.

With the removal of Admiral Kimmel, Featherston would appoint McCain to be the commander of the Confederate Atlantic Fleet as a Fleet Admiral. During his time, McCain would do his best to fight the Union Navy in the Atlantic, in which he would survive the superbombing of Charleston as he was aboard the Battleship CSS Robert E. Lee. During the Battle of Wilmington, McCain would be commander of all Confederate forces in the region before ultimately surrender on June 17th, 1944.
