    Queen Elizabeth 2nd returns to England after her Uncle King Edward VIII and Queen Wallis fled the Country following the fall of the Butler Government. She was greeted with great support seen here at London Airport on landing back in the Country so the first time since she fled with her Father and Mother in 1944.

    Police facing off with rioters in 1964-1965 against the return of the Royal Family. Even with the popular support for the return of the Queen, Elizabeth 2nd, many more felt betrayed by the monarchy, first by the UK's defeat and America abandoned them in favor of beating Japan, and then Edward VIII time as King and the United Kingdom being a puppet to the Reich. Many went as far as calling on a British Republic.

    A referendum would go on to see wherever the UK would stay a monarchy or go on to a Republic.

    Iain Macleod campaigning during the 1969 General Election. Macleod was Leader of the Conservative Party from 1965 to 1970. He served just a year in Office between 1969 and 1970 before dying the age of 56. Macleod was Foreign Secretary during the National Government of 1964 to 1969 under Labour Prime-Minister James Callaghan.

    (In OTL Macleod was good friends with Jim Callaghan despite being in opposing parties and Macleod being Shadow Chancellor to Callaghan's Chancellor during the 1960's)

    Polish Home Army forces making a last stand somewhere during the Warsaw Uprsing in 1968. In the time of Hitler's death, and Nazi die-hards resistance, much of Eastern Europe went up in flames by local ethic people and Red Army forces rushing into former Russia.

    The Warsaw Uprsing was stamped out by the German National Republic as GNP kept control over the Baltic, Poland and Western Ukraine with the aid of fanatic German setters and Germanized Slavic people. (In total fear of the return of the USSR.)

    Poland was forever lost.

    GNR troopers stand sentry outside the new Chancellery in Bonn in 1969, which was the nation's capital between 1965 & 1975. Berlin resumed being the Capital following the rebuilding of the capital. All the major Nazi buildings where razed to the ground, although some had been destroyed during fighting during the Army coup in 1964 following Hitler's death and the revelation of the holocaust.

    Prime-Minister James Callaghan shown talking with key advisors in his study in 10 Downing Street in 1966. Callaghan would serve two non-consecutive terms as Prime Minister from 1964 to 1969 and then from 1974 to 1979.

    James Callaghan was the surprise leader of the National Government in 1964. He was Labour's Shadow Foreign secretary, and when the Butler Government fell, Labour Leader George Brown was expected to become Prime-Minister, but he was deemed "unsuitable & unstable" because of his heavy drinking. He was supported by the Armed forces especially having served in the Royal Navy during the war. Callaghan seen here leaving his London House after accepting the Leadership of the National Government.

    Bell UH-1 Iroquois "Huey" helicopters descend on an airfield just east of Perm, April 1965. The helicopters, and the speedy Soviet advance that they helped enable in the face of the disintegrating Wehrmacht, would come to represent the vast increase in American material support for the Soviet Union under the new Goldwater administration after the marked decline in American aid caused by his predecessors attempt to improve relations with the Nazi regime.

    The governor of Manchuria declares independent from the Republic of China, 1967. Since it victory in the First Civil War, the ROC took a darkly authoritarian turn to keep control over the Middle Kingdom. The 1960s would see matters boil over.

    Guys I love your Photos of... series. It's a great way to imagine our outcomes for after when the story ends or show pictures that really relate to the novels we like.

    Charlotte Maguire became a campaigner against anit-Semitism for the rest of her life. Here she is being interviewed by students at a US high School in 2015 (now aged 76). She was the main technical advisor on Spielberg's "Fatherland Movie". She was to say later it was the "hardest thing" she had ever done was watching the filming (Julia Roberts playing her) even harder than her escape in real life.

    Thought I better point out that it is the same person as Charlotte Maguire in both photos above, the actress Tippi Hedren, the pictures seemed a perfect fit for her. Also when the book was published I thought if it was a movie Julie Roberts was the obvious person to play her (instead when had the awful TV movie, with British actress Miranda Richardson playing her, very badly.....), anyway I digress....
