    Interesting posts. Here's my take on this based on my own KR headcannon.

    Milan Nedić, considered by many one of the founding fathers of the ISSA. Nedić was a veteran of the First Weltkrieg and a General in the Serbian Army during both the Fourth Balkan War against Bulgaria in 1937 and 1938 and the Fifth Balkan War against Danubia in 1939. In the Fourth War, Serbia was victorious, but in the Fifth War, Serbia won a Pyrrhic victory, as Serbia managed to annex parts of Banat and Novi Sad from Danubia, but failed to annex Bosnia and thus unite the Serbs of the Balkan Peninsula and establish a Greater Serbian kingdom. Meanwhile, Iron Guard Romania failed to annexed Transylvania, thus leading to Romania leaving the Balkan Pact and growing closer to the Russian State*. The failure of Serbia to conquer Bosnia, create a Greater Serbia and to turn the fellow South Slavic nations of Croatia and Slovenia into Serbian puppet-states led Nedić to believe that it was impossible for Serbia to win militarily against the Danubia. On the contrary, he began to argue that the only way to achieve victory was to start a campaign of terror against the symbols of Austrian and Hungarian power in Danubia to push the ethnic-Serb civilian population in the Danubian kingdoms of Bosnia, Croatia and to a lesser-extent Slovenia to rebel against Vienna. Although his direct participation in the subsequent terrorist attacks in Bosnia and Croatia is open to debate, Nedić never failed to show support for the ISSA, claiming that the real culprits were Danubia and its "oppression" of Orthodox Serbs. Ironically, on October 26, 1954, Nedić himself was killed in a terrorist attack and car-bombing in Belgrade by the Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Federation, which sought for the independence of Macedonia from Serbia**.

    *=During WKII, during the Russian and Romanian invasion of Danubia, Romania would occupy Transylvania and commit numerous atrocities during the Transylvanian Genocide. By the end of the war, Danubia reconquered Transylvania and a pro-monarchist coup occurred in Bucharest. After the coup, a fleeing Codreanu would be caught by Simon Wiesenthal, a survivor of the aforementioned genocide, after which Codreanu was tried and executed by hanging in Bucharest by the armies of the Kingdom of Romania and Danubian Federation in 1947.

    **=The activities of the VMRO would lead to the Sixth Balkan War between Serbia and Bulgaria, which lasted from 1987 to 1989 and saw the Bulgarian annexation of Macedonia as an autonomous region of Bulgaria. In 1992, after years of terrorism by Montenegrin separatists, Montenegro would become an autonomous region of Serbia.

    The consequences of an ISSA attack on a Catholic Church in Sarajevo in 1965. In the twenty years following the first attack on Garažne, the ISSA would continue to attack civil and political targets not only in Bosnia, but in some cases also amongst ethnic Serbs in Croatia and Hungarian Vajdaság or Vojvodina and even in Slovenia, where the ISSA would attempt to collaborate with fringe Slovenian terrorist groups, none of which had any real reach. All of this was in an attempt to forment a Pan-Serbian revolution, but these terrorist attacks obtained very few results. This twenty years is known in Danubia, Bosnia and Hungary as "The Years of Lead" ("Godine vode" in Serbo-Croatian/Bosnian, "Évek vezetnek" in Hungarian or "Jahre Blei" in German ) and was characterized by inter-religious violence between the Orthodox and Catholic communities of Bosnia, as well between the Orthodox and Muslin communities of Bosnia. In 1971, after years of pressure from the Danubian government, the government of the Kingdom of Serbia under King Petar II and Prime Minister Petar Stambolić began to crack down on the activities of the ISSA, and over the ext dew years raided numerous terror cells throughout Serbia. By 1980, the ISSA had ceased all activities and was completely disbanded, with its leaders and members either executed or imprisoned by the Serbian and Danubian governments.

    Petar Stambolić, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Serbia throughout much of the 1970s and 1980s. His time in office was marked by a straightening of relations between Serbia and the other members of the Belgrade Pact, Greece and Romania and a detente with the Kingdom of Bulgaria, which sadly ended after the beginning of the Sixth Balkan War, as well as promoting democracy and parliamentarianism within Serbia and cracking down on all manner of terrorist groups such as the ISSA, VRMO and the CGMA (Crnogorska narodna armija or Montegrin Peoples Army, the later of which was a Montenegrin separatist terrorist group. Stambolić, as a Social Democrat, also passed reforms such as equal pay for women, the funding of public works and an increase in funding of the welfare state, all of which made Serbia one of the more forward thinking nations in the Balkans. His funeral in 2007, after his death at the age of 95, was one of the most attended and watched in all of modern Serbian history.

    Movie Poster for Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom. The film is based on stories of Nationalist Italy by refugees who managed to escape to the SRI. It is infamous for its graphic showing of sexual assault, violence and degeneracy, particularly the infamous scenes where people are forced to eat feces. It caused quite the stir when it was released in the mid 70's, many of the more conservative members of the Internationale have called for its censorship or banning due to its content, but this is contrasted with others saying that this is a great reminder of the evils of National Populism, with even a few members of the Italian House of Commons raising a few eyebrows by trying to have it be required viewing in their schools, but the idea was shot down as many felt that the movie is too graphic for people who are of school age. Naturally, Nationalist Italy was quite outraged over this movie, with the then Duce Silvio Berlusconi declaring it to be nothing but lies perpetrated by the reds.

    A propaganda poster featuring NatPop British-Canadian leader Winston Churchill, promoting Canadian involvement in the Second Weltkreig.
    (Given that Churchill was rather racist, anti-Semitic, and also a eugenicist, I think I can see him going NatPop, especially with all the changes KR has. Plus he had support from the King, so he would likely come to power sooner or later)

    He may well have been racist, but as I understand it he and his family were more Phellio-Semitic than normal for the time, part of the reason for his early anagotism for Nazi Germany

    Well his views on those types of issues were sort of vague.
    I see. But his website is quite biased, up to the point where they say he actually was not responsible for the Bengal famine and anyone who says so is biased towards India.
    Please don’take This meanly

    He was anti semitic but not in the hateful sense, more a "the Jewish people must choose between Zionism and bolshevism" to paraphrase something he said.

    Pacific States Marines during the Battle of Louisiana, 1939. PSA Generals estimated the liberation of the southern coastal states would take four weeks; Louisiana alone took 4 months to fall, as the hellish swamp conditions and fanatical AUS partisans hiding in the bayous took their toll. Estimated Marine casualties are around 5,000 killed or wounded but many bodies of fallen soldiers were never recovered.

    Doubt it, there’s no way the remains would just be left out there intentionally to be desecrated and rotting. Maybe there’s an organization responsible for finding and repatriating remains post-war, like there is IRL

    The Parliament House of the Indian Confederation (1960, colorized).

    After the invasion and partitioning of the Bharatiya Commune during the Indian Front of the Second Weltkrieg, an uneasy truce fell upon the Princely Federation and the Dominion of India. This stalemate turned into forced unity after the rapid geo-political changes in the 1950's, including the collapse of the Entente and the increasing power of other Asian countries such as the Republic of China and the Empire of Japan. The Indian Confederation was based in Delhi but gave massive autonomy to the Princely states in the south, leaving the federal government able to control very little. The Confederation failed to reform after the unsucessful Congress Of 1962, and later disintegrated due to ethnic, religious, and political tensions.

    24th Idaho National Guard, Pacific States Army, watches the PSAF fleet pass overhead during the largest air attack of the 2nd American Civil War - July 4, 1940. The assault decimated strategic points and cities within the CSA and allowed for a massive breakthrough into the Great Lakes region. In response to the attack, the CSA government immediately passed Worker’s Measure No. 27, ordering all PSA pilots shot down into CS territory to be lynched on sight.

    E996E665-B1A9-4B3B-A7E1-0C7DA7467113.jpeg I reckon I will throw my own hat in the ring, for the AUS won the 2 ACW in my playthrough.

    The Second American Civil War.

    Following the tenuously won presidential election of Huey Long of 1936 and the subsequent military Coup under General MacArthur, the United States faced a crisis unseen in scope in it's entire history. The Civil War officially began on March 30th 1937 and ended in December 7th 1938 after a brutal war that claimed the lives of over 4 million soldiers and militia, and left millions more devastated across a country shattered by civil war. However, it is important to note the beginnings of conflict took root well before the election, aided by the collapse of the American economy following the Great Depression of 1925, and again in early 1936 following the Black Friday Crash, and again thanks to the long standing animosity from the current Democrat and Republican parties. Radical solutions were sought, among these the two great new party coalitions, the America First party, who dominated the isolationist, populist conservative bloc, and the American Syndicalist party, who rose to prominence and power in the industrial heartland of America.

    The Federalist Coup, the brainchild of Herbert Hoover, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and General MacArthur, was intended to serve as a temporary government safety to ensure the catastrophic civil war predicted would not come to pass. This of course, was not the case. By the time Macarthur's loyalists had stormed Congress and the White House, President Long and a majority of high level officials loyal to him, had fled the city mere hours before, thanks to tips from Pro-AFP members privy to MacArthur's plan. Before long, President Long had reached the AFP stronghold of New Orleans and was heavily guarded. Declaring the coup to the nation by public radio, President Long vowed he would see the Traitors in Chains, and democracy restored.

    This of course, prompted outrage across the nation, not least of which from the Syndicalist camp, the political main rivals of the AFP. Their chairman, Jack Reed, declared himself the rightful president and that the election was clearly a sham. He too demanded the surrender of MacArthur and the keys to the White House, in clear contest to Long. Soon, a stalemate was reached. Troops loyal to MacArthur began to dig in, but they would be quickly placed between a veritable sea of armed Syndicalists to their north, and armed AFP militias to their south. The March Truce, as it is called, signaled the true start of the war. From their regional strongholds, the three factions declared their intent to fight, and soon citizens took up arms and prepared.

    The first shots of the 2nd ACW began in Virginia, where the 4th Virginian AFP Militia based out of Norfolk, advanced north along the coastal road with the intent to seize DC from the Federalist Traitors. The column of citizen soldiers, under the Command of Fieldmarshal Patton, advanced until blocked by Traitor police and a regiment of Maryland National Guard. Neither side willing to fire first, until the docked Weltkrieg era destroyer USS Samson, flying the Stars and Stripes, engaged the coastline, throwing indiscriminate cannon fire and forcing the two armies into a frenzied dash for cover. By the end of the day, hundreds were wounded or dead in the brutal crossfire, and the Samson was heavily damaged by sporadic response cannon fire from both sides. The Samson was later scuttled to prevent capture by the AFP, detonating 4 of its own 450mm torpedoes along the hull and igniting the central magazine. The surviving crew fled north to Federalist lines. The frenzied telegraph and radio communications signaled the start of combat, and within a day, 9 more regiments of citizen militia were marching north under General Patton, while Regular military forces that had stayed loyal to the rightful president also moved north to engage the Federalists.

    With the start of proper combat, question of command of the AUS military and militias was relegated to the choice of President Long. Between Generals Devers and Patton, who each had their own particular doctrine and preferences for warfare. Recognizing Dever’s ideal of attrition based warfare, he was appointed commander of the 1st Army Group. With whole battalions of militia forming practically overnight, they were sent to him, alongside the majority of all artillery in the war. His instructions were simple. Hold the line at all cost. Meanwhile, General Patton was given command of the more mechanized and mobile elements, however few there were early in the war.

    Where Devers was expected to hold the line and react to offensives, Patton was expected to exploit weakness and force the enemy to break in a radical move towards mobile warfare.
