    Goering at the Berlin Trial
    Stathalder Herman von Goering was the first and only Stadthalder of the German Empire colony Deutsche-Mittelafrika. Ruling the colony like his own personal fiefdom to be exploited his rule is characterized by brutal treatments of natives and exploitation of the abundant resources of the colony. However in 1938, after his decade of running the colony, his network of corruption and extortion was uncovered and horrified the German public and especially Kaiser Wilhelm I himself. Goering was immedeatly presented with a letter from the Kaiser himself to either step down or tell his case in court. Goering, against the advice of his second Erwin Shultz-Ewerth, decided to fight it in court in Germany banking on his latent support as a hero of The Weltkrieg. He even sent a letter to Chief of the Luftwaffe and former service buddy Manfred von Richthofen to speak in his defense in court. Not wanting to commit political suicide Richthofen declined and cut all remaining ties with the Stadthalder. When the Goering Trial convened in Berlin in February 1939 Goering decided to defend himself, again against the advice of most of his close associates. What resulted was the first media circus as TV and radio coverage of the trial was extensive with every word blasted across the German Empire, the Reichspakt and then the world. Thousands if not millions kept tabs on how the trial was going. The trial dragged on for months as the prosecution brought forth evidence of crimes against humanity committed by the Mittelafrikan administration ranging from exploitative work practices to wanton murder of innocents. Goering tried at first to disprove the prosecutions accusations but that quickly was revealed to not be working so he switched strategies halfway through the trial to instead that he was doing what had to be done to keep the colony together. He claimed that the web of alliances and treaty between local lords and the German administration was only enforced by the suppression of native resistance. He argued that if the repression lightened up even a fraction then the underlying tensions in the colony would explode and Mittelafrika would collapse. He used his seizure of Portuguese Angola and Mozambique in the Brush War as a show of how effective his rule of the colony was. However in the end it was for not. On December 19th, 1939 Herman Goering was sentenced to life in prison for gross abuse of power, embezzlement, and conspiracy to commit murder. He would die in Spandau Prison in 1972 of complications from hypothermia. However it seemed that Goering got the last laugh in the end because his replacement, his former second Erwin Shultz-Ewerth tried a more humane treatment. This coupled with a dozen other bungles led to Mittelafrika dissolving into its constituent parts and the bloody African Wars.

    Following Germany's defeat in the Second Weltkrieg, the cold war began. Savinkov ordered the revenge to end, and soon Siberian Oil money poured into the German State to keep the Germans loyalty. He said to Germans, "The past is the past, we must now work together to crush the red menace. Today, Russian State officials claim the East Germans have supreme loyalty to the Pact of Iron. Yet dissent is clearly showing from behind the scenes of this brutal existence, and this is largely prompted from the German Exile community. In fact, some Internationale officials talk of a Neutral Germany under the Kaiser. Nevertheless, that is unlikely. The German State is supposedly linked of with the Reich of Mittleafrika, but infant, this is only on paper. The first leader of the German State was Otto Johann Maximilian Strasser, who betrayed the Kaiser partially out of loyalty to Goering who defected, but also to see the Kaiser's "Lackey Aristocracy" downfall. Savinkov, for reconciliation, allowed many old German norms to remain. Even the army looks similar to the Kaisers Stalhelm wearing shock troopers. This regime is the most Anti Semitic in the Pact of Iron, but the Russian State has turned a blind eye, and the Jews get deported to Poland. Savinkov went as far to ask some Germans on the street, "forgiveness for that thing in Berlin." He appeared geniunly moved by the suffering he saw, and an urge not to it repeat again. Yet this was only in the German State, the Russian State openly denies the Berlin Massarcre. For now, most Germans appear grateful that when the slaughter ended, "Russification" which happened to other states, did not seem their fate.

    National flag of the Socalist Republic of Canada, as of 1966.

    After the successful CSA campaign against the North American Entente in 1951, the question remained: What to do with the massive Canadian nation? Some fringe Browderists wanted complete annexation, but a choice was ultimately made. Puppet governments in Quebec and Toronto were formed, and were incorporated into the Fifth Internationale.

    As of 1966, Canada spreads from Ontario to the icy shores of Alaska. Despite its massive size, the government still kisses the American boot, and resistance is common in the icy north, eager to free the nation from syndicalist control.

    Fred Rose, 2nd General Secretary of the Socalist Republic of Canada, pictured here, in 1968. Rose’s ascension was approved by the government in Philadelphia, and he showed his gratitude by essentially being a sock puppet for American interests. However, his authortarian tendencies, contradicting with the more libertarian American government, have him deeply unpopular with the Canadian people, and a challenge for the top seat is likely soon to come.

    Charles DeGaulle, Grand Marshal of the French Republic

    After the quiet death of Marshal Petain on Christmas 1946, there was a power struggle in the recently-liberated Marseille government. With the support of the army, however, famed general and architect of the doctrine that led to victory in the Weltkrieg DeGaulle came out on top.

    A paranoid man after suffering a near-death experience in the war that traumatized him, Southern France is ruled has been ruled as a totalitarian military junta for the past twenty one years. The French Republic has few allies, and far more enemies. It’s colonies in North Africa are in constant revolt, only put down by military atrocities. The future is bleak. But the French people are determined, the jackboot of the Kaissereich shall never reach the Medderterrian Sea!

    Emperor Edward VIII of the British Empire
    (1936 - 1987)​
    Edward Albert Christian George Andrew Patrick David, otherwise known as Emperor Edward VIII of the British Empire, was the 10th King of Great Britain and First Emperor of the British Empire. Edward VIII was born into the royal family and quickly became known for his authoritarian streak as a young man, frequently questioning his father on various aspects of court protocol. George IV however was adamant that the parliamentary system be maintained and did everything in his power to instill the belief onto his son and heir. When Edward was named Prince of Wales in 1910 on his 16th birthday Edward had taken the lessons instilled by his father, now King, to heart and seemed to have dropped his rebellious attitudes. Then, in 1914 when the Weltkrieg plunged the European Continent into war Edward volunteered for service and gained a officers commission on the Western Front soon after. What Edward saw on the Western Front was horrible and made Edward swear that such a folly never be allowed to happen again. Edward served on the front for the entirety of the War and was one of the British officers who tried in vain to stop the French Soldiers Strike of 1917. He was again part of the Spring Offensive early the next year where he was injured by a German sniper. With a bullet in his shoulder and his men mauled by the failed Offensive Edward was evacuated to the Islands and sat out the rest of the War.

    In 1925 Edward had recovered just in time to watch the British Empire explode as tensions between the Syndicalists and the State came to violence. Edward urged his father to allow the Army to suppress the revolutionaries but George was shaken to the core. On March 22nd, 1925 PM Baldwin came to Buckingham Palace to advise the Royal Family to evacuate with him and his government to Canada. Edward urged his father to stay in Britain to lead the fight against the syndicalists but George agreed to accompany Baldwin to Canada. Edward planned to stay and fight but his father angrily demanded he go to Canada and Edward reluctantly accepted. As the HMS Dreadnought sailed away from the Isles Edward swore revenge on the Syndicalists who stole his home and his birthright from him and his family.

    When Edward, Baldwin and the Exiles arrived in Canada they were given a somber reception by Prime Minister Robert Borden but very quickly seized control of the Dominion. The Canadian Senate was replaced with the House of Lords made up of the exiled British nobility and the Governor Generalship was abolished and instead the King took the position. For the next 11 years Edward became the champion of the Exiles and constantly pushed Canada to take its 'rightful place' as the 'Arsenal of the Empire' and help the Exiles reclaim the birthright. Meanwhile a rising resistance to Exile domination led by William Kenzie King took root in Canada wanting not to focus on the Isles but instead on Canada. Edward saw them as no better than Syndicalist sympathizers and decried them at every chance he could. As King George entered the later years of his life in the mid 1930's Edward, heir apparent, became more and more the face of the Monarchy and the Exiles as a whole. Having taken in the obsession with reclaiming Britain his father had Edward was impatiently awaiting the day he wore the crown.

    Meanwhile relations between Edward and George V began to disintegrate. Edward was seen by George as a womanizer and unfit to wear the crown; He saw Edward's numerous relationships with women both married and not as disgraceful. Edward however saw George was a relic of the past who was unable to stop syndicalism from taking over Britain. He also suspected and confided in his closest associates that George was unable to or unwilling to launch a war to retake Britain and swore many times to do something his father would not. It is rumored that in the last year of George's life he spoke not a single word to his son and that is just how Edward wanted it.

    Finally, on September 11th, 1936 George V died in his sleep, senile and crying out for his lost homeland. Later that day Edward was crowned in a lavish ceremony he himself had planned for years before. At the ceremony Edward gave a long winded speech to the crowd of Canadian and Exile leaders that was simultaneously broadcasted across the Empire. In it Edward paid cursory tribute to his father but quickly got down to business. He denounced the incumbent Prime Minister William King as a coward and traitor who did not want to free the oppressed Britons. He swore that he would introduce sweeping legislation to move Canada from a civilian to a total war economy that would be used to retake Britain and get revenge on Germany. As the speech finished cheers arose from the Exiles but silence and quiet murmurer came from the Canadians. This only seemed to reinforce Edward's point. As soon as Edward returned to his residence he gathered the Exiles and over the next month drafted Bill C-7 which proposed among other things, a switch to total war footing of the Economy, extension of the draft to everyone from 17 - 40 and the subsidizing of many war industries.

    Discussion on the Bill lasted until mid-December when Prime Minister King announced that the bill had been struck down by a coalition of the Canadian Liberal Party, led by King and the Progressive Party (which King Edward was convinced was Syndicalist). Later that day Edward and leader of the Exiles in the Senate RB Bennett met in Rideau Hall to discuss the results of the Bill. While what was said in the Hall is not known what is known is that when Bennett left four hours later he left with a message for King and his government. The King had lost faith in his government's ability to represent the People of Canada and the Empire and as such was being dissolved by royal decree. However, while many expected this to precede a snap election one did not come. Instead King Edward installed Bennett and a few Exile leaders into prominent Cabinet positions with himself as King-Minister, or Emperor. This was justified using a long forgotten aspect of the Royal Prerogative that hadn't been used in over a century. While this brought ire from many patriotic Canadians overall Edwards popularity with the rank and file Canadian made the transition from democratic to autocratic government smoother than many had foreseen. With Canada now firmly behind him Edward mobilized the vast resources of the country to arm a new Army led by Exiles and filled with Canadians using a new doctrine called Lightning War.

    Flag of the Kingdom of Canada (1936 - 1945)​

    This new doctrine was put to the test when The United States fell into chaos and anarchy in the wake of John Nance Garner's election in 1938 and civil war soon followed. In the opening months of confused chaos Edward was quick to seize control of New England at the invitation of prominent businessmen led by Joseph P. Kennedy. While many of the businessmen who invited Canada into the North East expected to set up a government of their own they were shocked when Edward declared that New England was an integral part of Canada and would be treated as such. This started the long running American Resistance Movement. As 1938 came to a close it became increasingly clear that the Syndicalist Combined Syndicates of America, led by journalist turned politician John Reed, was winning the war. To prevent a Syndicalist nation from solidifying on their coast Edward decided that preemptive intervention in the American War would be a fine test of his new army. The resulting Canadian-American War was a bloody affair as the various warring factions in the former US united in opposition to the invading Canadian forces in the ad hoc American Alliance, effectively stopping the Civil War. However the various American armies were simply poorly equipped militia facing a highly trained and disciplined force with the latest in technology.

    The resulting Intervention went on for nearly a year as Canadian forces brushed aside the various armies set against it in bloody warfare. This was were General Montgomery gained his fame as a renowned tank commander. The Intervention was finally declared to be at an end in late 1939 when the last forces of the United States (now led by a junta under Generalissimo MacArthur) and the Union State were forced to surrender. With the occupation of a country nearly as big as Canada itself but much more populated Edward was quick to come to the realization that annexing the land into Canada would only entail and long and bloody war of resistance. Instead he 'restored' the United States (sans New England, Alaska, Panama Canal and Puerto Rico) as a Republic under the interim President Charles Curtis leading the newly established Unitary Party. As a addendum to their newly regained independence Curtis agreed to enroll the United States into the Entente Alliance. This was a massive boost to the eventual war against the Internationale as America had enormous potential industrial capacity. While the American public was initially hesitant to accept Curtis, seeing him as a Canadian puppet, Curtis was eventually accepted as the legitimate government.

    With America secured and the Army now baptized in fire Edward turned his attention to the Navy. Boosted by defections by the Royal Navy away from the Syndicalist TUC in Britain, the Navy was clearly disorganized. Made up of a mish-mash of top of the line British ships, smaller Canadian ships and a few ships from other Dominions their were near constant conflicts over doctrine, fleet makeup and seniority. Edward started by appointed a Supreme Admiral of the Navies, Sir Andrew Cunningham who was to lead the Royal Navy/Canadian Navy. All admirals reported ultimately to him, no exceptions. Then he split the Royal Navy into two Fleets, the British Fleet made up of former Royal Navy ships and the Canadian Fleet made up of the Canadian Navy. It immediately became obvious that the Canadians were woefully under-equipped to take back Britain as most of their ships were not large enough to stand toe to toe with the the syndicalist fleet. To remedy this Edward designated the British Fleet as a High Seas Fleet, meant to take on the Syndicalist Fleet and destroy it at sea. The Canadian Navy meanwhile was designated as the Coastal Fleet. Their Fleet was to support the landings and maintain a close blockade of the Isles. He then began to massively build up both fleets commissioning the new Reclaimer-class Battleships for the British fleet and the Defender class destroyers for the Canadian fleet. Over the next five years Canadian shipyards from Halifax to Victoria set about laying down and building dozens of top of the line ships to join the Reclamation. All the while in Europe the Internationale and the Reichspakt came to blows after the German ambassador was killed in Austria by a French Syndicalist.

    Finally, on June 1st, 1945, as the Second Weltkreig entered its fifth year and the fields of France soaked up ever more blood, Edward made his move. He declared war on the Union of Britain and the Commune of France; this drew in the entire Entente Alliance into the growing war. By the end of that same day the First, Second and Third British Fleets were smashing the tired and battered Union fleets in the North Atlantic. The Battle of the Atlantic as it was called was more of a dozen smaller battles that is generally lumped into one larger one. The Union Navy, already stretched thin fighting the Kreigsmarine took pounding after pounding and by the end of the first week of June the Aircraft Carriers the Union built their fleets around were all resting at the bottom of the ocean. With the enemy in disseray and scattered Admiral Cunningham and Emperor Edward decided now was the time to reclaim the Home Isles. They sent word to the Canadian Fleet and the already large American Atlantic Squadron, L-Day was set for June 10th and rushed preparations began.

    The Americans mobilized their seemingly massive manpower and readied their fleets for war as the British Fleet cleared the Seas in the days prior. Then the Entente Alliance set off on the largest invasion ever to take place in human history. 300,000 men from the various Entente Nations, mostly from Canada and America thundered across the Atlantic to reach British shores. By mid-day June 10th the Canadian Fleet and American Atlantic Squadron appeared off the coast of the four beaches designated to host the Landings. Sword Beach near Glasgow, Snow Beach in Northern Ireland, George Beach in Cornwall and Edward Beach in Wales. Snow, Sword and Edward were all British beaches while the rest of the allies crowded onto George Beach and nearly a dozen smaller landings across the Isles. Its said when he heard about the landings Mosely had a heart attack and Edward jumped for joy. However Mosely's elite and fanatical Peoples Protectors Divisions had built heavy fortifications across the Isles and the local militias put up a solid fight. Not only that but the invading Entente force largely lacked armor while Mosely's Crawlers were focused on the beaches over the next two days. The fighting was rough but by the 12th all four beaches had been secured. What followed was one of the most brutal campaigns in human history.

    The first offensive was the Welsh Offensive, led by Sir Bernard Montgomery himself. British forces struck out from Edward Beach towards Swansea and Cardiff to not only take the places where the Revolution began but open up the heartland of Mosely's regime to be struck by the RAF, operating off the HMS Victorious and Courageous just off the Welsh coast. Both cities were only a few dozen miles from the beaches but due to the fanatical resistance Mosely demanded the British took heavy casualties, particularly as they entered the cities where Syndicalist snipers picked off men at the worst of times. When the offensive was ended at the tail end of June the British had taken almost 11,500 casualties. Edward was not happy and ordered his men to instead of take cities in more than likely brutal urban warfare, they were to surround the city and bombard it until it surrendered. The Isolation Doctrine would tie up precious troops maintaining at some points four or five siege's and slow the campaigns in other theaters considerably; but we can say that with the benefit of hindsight.

    The war continued slowly but methodically for nearly two years before London finally fell. When Entente troops entered the city they found Mosely's body strung up from a flag pole battered, bruised and savaged by an angry populace. Nevertheless Edward returned to Britain on July 18th, 1948 much to the ire of his military advisors as much of the countryside was still crawling with Syndicalist guerillas. Nevertheless Edward made himself seen as he walked through the ruined streets of London in remarkably casual wear for someone of his position. He even helped some people move debris from a road much to the delight of the people. In front of a ruined Buckingham Palace Edward delcared to a grateful nation "The Reclamation has come"! While martial law would not be lifted from the Isles until 1950, and George V's body wouldn't be returned until 1951 the United Kingdom was back and on the road to recovery.

    Major Battles of the British Front:
    London: 473,492 dead
    Birmingham: 382,121 dead
    Cardiff: 200,177 dead
    Edinburgh: 100,000 dead

    So who leads Canada after 1950? Since I imagine that by then, too many have grown up on Syndicalism and Britain will never be the heart of the empire again

    I would say probably one of the Exiles, maybe one or two would want to stay in Canada so Edward would make them run Canada for the time being.

    EDIT: Maybe Edward would run it while the UK rebuilds before delegating that responsibility when the UK is rebuilt.

    I like to think that Edward still runs Canada up to his death since he put a lot of work into making it into an empire, and a lot of governmental organs were transferred there. So either he gave England to someone else or he annexes it.

    Though curious that in your post about Edward there was not a word about Queen Isabelle and the fact that they have children. :D

    Many credit him for ending Indian Feudualsim of the British Era, industrialization, and unifying the Sub Continent. Some critize his cult of personality, and the "Great Jump to Progress."
    Nevertheless, his image is high among most Indians today, with India now a very wealthy Syndicalist Nation, and they give him credit.

    That is sort of what I was going for. I would say he has some Tito mixed in, he is slightly more benevolent than Mao. Eventually, the rulers after him become more moderate, and Bhariyata is quite wealthy today.

    Russian Uniforms did not stay the same throughout the Second Weltkrieg - Savinkov, bring a practical man, would change when he saw it as fit. These are uniforms from the later Weltkrieg. The soldiers were wearing these during the fall of Berlin, or what would be called by the exile community, "The Rape of Berlin."
    russian_liberation_army__roa___2__by_daniel_skelton-dclmg71.png.jpeg
    Seeing as they probably wanted German Influence minimal, their helmets were NOT stalhelms. However, Savinkov was sneaky! He merely developed a new helmet from it, but made it as un German as possible! (OTL M56 Stalhelm).
    Headcanon, guys. Also for the Iron Eagle of the Russians, picture it as Nazi Germanies OTL one, with two heads however, and a crown of thrones rather than a swastika.
    Sidenote: I am not trying to make them copy Nazi Germany, but I still try to make them look Fascistic to a scale. They are certainly not angels, despite not nessasaily ethnic nationalists.
