    A map of the world of the World Crises series/Führerreich: Legacy of the Great War on Thursday, January 1st, 1948, less than a year after the end of the Second Great War on September 15, 1947.

    This map is based on my own head-canon of the Führerreich world. Some minor things may be subject to change.

    Meanwhile, In Europe....

    Imperial German forces move to the front line during the first days of the Second Weltkreig, September 1942. The collapse of peace was not unexpected, as border clashes had raged for decades and the two opposing sides became ever more openly hostile to each other.

    Italian Worker’s Liberation Army forces preparing for their attack into Alsace-Lorraine. The area was heavily defended by Reichspakt troops and saw some of the bloodiest fighting of the war in Europe.

    French soldiers take cover as a German MG opens fire in a village, September 1942. Note the flamethrower on the second man’s back. Thanks to their effectiveness in the First Weltkreig, such weapons were used in disturbingly large quantities by both sides.

    Any ideas what a 1960's Space Race would be like in the world of KR?

    I'm rather partial to a European 'Nasa' style organisation vs Syndicalist efforts myself.

    Infact, I've postulated just such a possibility here.

    Imperial German troops during an inspection, October 1942. Despite intense drilling and training during the interwar years, a good majority had never seen real combat and were mentally unprepared for what was to follow.

    Imperial German Army soldiers on the move during Operation Friedrich, November 1 1942. The operation was the first counter-offensive conducted by the Reichspakt of the war. However, the offensive was quickly blunted by stiff, almost fanatical CoF and UoB resistance. German commanders abandoned the plan of attacking the French Commune through Flanders-Wallonia, fearing a repeat of the trench warfare of the First Weltkreig.

    British Worker’s Liberation soldiers during a lull in the Battle of Mons, late October 1942. Note the Russian-made machine gun - Russia gave some material assistance to the Internationale in an effort to bring down their old German rivals. The battle itself closed with a stalemate, and Operation Friedrich evicted the BWLA forces in November.

    An Italian political officer interrogates a captured German soldier, November 1942. The German officer was most likely executed shortly afterward, as Internationale forces had a tendency to execute anyone they deemed a “counter-revolutionary” - including PoWs. Eventually, the practice was stopped by early 1943, once Internationale political leaders realized the POWs were a valuable source of slave labor.

    Left KMT troops in the Lower Yangtze offensive.
    according to the instructions of the Central Committee of the Kuomintang , the new divisions and brigades no longer belonged to the military region and the military division, and the Huaibei Military Region organs were also established.

    Note all of my China pictures take place in a modified version of @theg*ddam*hoi2fan timeline with the China rework grafted in

    The remains of Amiens after three German “tidal wave” bombing attacks, January 1943. The “tidal wave” tactics dictated for German air forces to obliterate any target deemed useful to the Internationale war effort - usually by enormous fleets of bombers destroying the city through incendiaries, chemical and conventional bombing.

    German military police troops burn a suspected Syndicalist safehouse in the South of Germany. The southern Franco-German border was a known hotspot for spy activity that, despite the best intelligence efforts, raged mostly until the Second Weltkreig drew to a close.

    Imperial German shock trooper, 1943, an image that made the cover of several German magazines. Much like the First Weltkreig, many soldiers on both sides quickly realized the war wouldn’t be over with a quick victory, and would be a brutal slugging match neither side could afford to lose.

    Internationale forces during the Great Winter Offensive, December 1942. The Internationale command correctly guessed that many German soldiers would be distracted by the upcoming Christmas season (a holiday that had been banned in the Syndicalist countries), and thus would be caught off guard. The High Command ordered an offensive to take place on December 25. Starting with an overwhelming artillery barrage, the attack broke through the line on the 27th, and within days French Commune soldiers were parading down the devastated, terrified streets of Zweibrücken.

    Threads (1984) is an adaptation of the 1954 Eric Arthur Blair novel of the same name. It is a prequel to his controversial book 1984 (1948). Both Threads and 1984 were made in Blair’s later life, showing his growing criticisms of Totalitarian Socialism. In it, The Third Weltkrieg breaks out between Germany and Mongolia, The Federation of Great Britain, the successor state of the Union of Britain, being an ally of Germany and major member of ISAF (International Security Allied Forces), is a target of nuclear bombing. The target, Sheffield, is where the main protagonist, Ruth Beckett, lives. It chronicles her life before, during, and after 3WK. The story ends 1 year before 1984, with Jane Beckett, the daughter of Ruth, being raped, and eventually giving birth to a stillborn baby in front of the book’s sequel’s main protagonist, Winston Smith, who was in the St. John’s Hospital at the time. Threads, and it’s sequel, 1984, were banned under the British government due to implying that the Maximists would regain power, albeit after a Nuclear War. Both stories were unbanned in 1977.

    Based on this DBWI thread:

    Chairman William Z. Foster (1881-1942) was the second leader of Red America, being the Chairman of the USAS and the leader of the centralist faction of the Socialist Party of America from 1938 until his death in 1942. His government was marked by the reconstruction of most of america under his totalist viewpoint, the expansion of the trade union system, the stabilishment of the dictatorship of the proletariat and the CIA. Shortly after a very controversial testimony delivered by a cleary tortured Henry Wallace on the congress he was removed by a military coup by Field Marshall Smedley Butler, killing him in the process.
