There's honestly a lot you could with New Mexico and west Texas during SGW anti Confederate and Mexican guerrillas made up of American ranchers and cattlemen, someone actually managing a horseback train robbery, camel rider scouts, Mormon gun runners etc.OOOORRRRRRRRR
Our Intrepid Johnny here has managed to seize some important Yankee information and is heading back to his lines!
Paul Hausser might be the man, if we imagine the collaborators to be of the "man, wouldn't it be cool if we had regular Pogroms against our Jewish populace in Germany as well" variety.I wonder which OTL German officer would likely to command a formation of German collaborators/defecting prisoners of war/far right militants under Russian command, in the Eastern Theater during the Second Great War?
Ferdinand Schorner? Walter Model? Von Reichnau? Erich von Manstein (for irony points)?
Here's another question: what about the Ukrainian resistance? The UPA, the Banderists, men like Dmytro Klyachkivsky? The region was occupied by Germany, but I doubt they'd want to go back under Russia either.
Who "Charles XI" was before France became a kingdom again is never stated in the books.So I'm aware that Charles XI is probably supposed to be Charles Maurras or something, but in my head, I always imagined him looking like this:
Sounds like a good fit for commander of the Teutonic Grand Ducal forces. Von Reichnau could be the Teutonic Grand Duke's military adviser/minister of war.
The Ukrainian Insurgent Army would definitely be fighting against both the Russian occupation and the German re-invasion. After the war they would fight the German armies and the armies of the Kingdom of Ukraine until the last active insurgents surrendered in 1948, although local and sporadic resistance would continue until 1955. Some members of the UPA would also selectively collaborate with the Russian Empire, although the Russian Empire raised their own collaborationist "Ukrainian Armies" and well as units of ethnic-Russians in Ukraine loyal to the Russian Empire.Here's another question: what about the Ukrainian resistance?
