Photos of the Kaiserreich



Yuan Keding, son of Yuan Shikai and the favored candidate for Emperor by the "Imperial Han Society" (OOC: The placeholder NatPop party in Fengtian mentioned in a flavor event or two) in the Fengtian Government, a far-right Han ultra-nationalist society which was comprised of Han supremacists who had a deep hatred of all non-Han ethnic groups, committing many crimes against ethnic minorities and believing that China can only be rejuvenated by a return to a native Han monarchy, leading to many Imperial Han Society members supporting his claim to the throne due to the actions of his father.
 

Georg Thomas (1890-1951) is the most controversial german world war II officer. After the collapse of the commune of France and socialist italy, and the "Three combined fleets" plan that saw the national french, canadian and the german navy combine to crush the Republican British Navy, Georg organized the "hunger plan" responsible for the british surrender. From 1942 until 1946 the Union of Britain was put under a draconian naval blockade after it was concluded that a invasion would be impossible (albeit operation Ulster liberated Ireland from republican occupation in 1944), the combined German, Canadian and National French air force crippled the ports of Bristol, Dover and it's main industrial centers, while the naval blockade made the importation of fuel, food and rubber impossible. The republican attempts to produce synthetic oil mitigated the blockade at first but as the refineries were bombed it became impossible to keep the RAF flying, leading a starved and crippled UoB to surrender inconditionally in february of 1946. It is estimated that between 500 thousand and 2 million people died due his strategy, and while seems as a hero at the time his policies have been questioned since the 1970s, turning him into a divisive figure. Today Georg is seem at the best as someone who created a morally wrong policy to end the war, while at the worst he's seem as a war criminal.

Kaiserreichs "Bomber-Harris"?
 
Kaiserreichs "Bomber-Harris"?
Quite. He was a war economy theorist and otl he was sidelined by the Nazis. He planned the hunger plan against the Soviet Union, so this timeline Germany kept him and he made this plan to cut off and starve the UoB of both resources and food. Maybe the bombing of Bristol could be this timeline version of Dresden.

TTL Georg: "Mister Mosley created a wall against Britain, but forgot to cover the roof."
 
So, proceeding the Georg Thomas tl I posted above:

So, I love industry and found my calling on the industrial corps.

That being said, however, I know that pollution is a problem, so...

OOC: This timeline version of the hungarian spring


The events following the death of General Secretary William Z. Foster in 1956 are known for it's many interpretations, usually based on the person you are asking. The "Maine Revolution", "Maine spring" or even "Main betrayal" was a huge scale wave of public unrest and civil disobedience following the appointing of a new totalist chairman to replace the late Foster. Maine have been one of the most liberal-progressive states on the USAS and the last drop that made the unrest start was a order by Chairman John J. Ballam to replace the current state comissioner with a Syndicalist inclined one, resulting on the acting comissioner to sign a order declaring the independence of the "Maine republic". The tanks rolled and the rest is history.

A rare photograph of Qi Xieyuan following the collapse of the Nanjing Clique, believed to have been taken sometime during the 40s.

Following Sun Chuanfang's death, Qi Xieyuan immediately took over the crumbling League, hoping to salvage what remained and turn it into his own personal fiefdom with the aid of Germany. However, few in China supported what appeared to just a continuation of German dominace over China, leading to mass revolts against Qi's rule and numerous cliques breaking off from the League. Qi's grasp on power quickly began to slip as his meager army was quickly overwhelmed by the forces of the Anqing Clique, Shangqing Tianguo, and the Left-KMT all converging on his territory at once. The Nanjing Clique collapsed in a matter of months, and the defeated warlord was forced to flee into exile.

Following his fall from power, Qi would spend the remainder of his life in exile. He first fled to Shanghai with whatever wealth he managed to take with him in hopes of securing a passage to Berlin in order to garner more support from the Kaiserreich for more troops and supplies, but Germany's economic problems at home meant that they had little interest in supporting their failed Chinese puppet. Dejected, Qi would spend the next several months courting the Japanese faction in the Legation Cities, hoping to garner support from them in order to make a return to the mainland, but the Japanese Empire had little use for a failed puppet of European imperialism.

The collapse of the Legation Cities forced Qi to abandon China entirely and flee elsewhere. He initially stayed in the Philippines, but the sudden eruption of the Second American Civil War forced Qi to flee due to the political chaos that erupted in the country. He managed to find a quiet home on one of the islands of German East Asia, where he stayed for a couple of years, but he was forced to flee again following Insulindia's invasion of Germany's Pacific colonies, and finally settled in the Kingdom of Hawaii, where he remained for the rest of his life. Qi Xieyuan died on March 27th, 1959, alone and largely forgotten.

A rare colorized photo of American businesswoman Lena McGrath in the Republic of Ireland, 1937. Famed American socialite and sister to millionaire Lex Luthor, Lena left the States shortly before the Second American Civil War to set up her own business in her mother's homeland of Ireland. Her company, McGrath Stationary and Office Supplies, became a financial success story as her products such as the 'Stilo' ballpoint pen and InstaMath miniaturized mechanical calculator became extremely popular in Germany and the other members of the Reichspakt/Mittleuropa. With her newly earned fortune she quickly expanded her business empire, setting up new factories in Limerick, Cork and Belfast, making her the wealthiest woman in Ireland. This caused a great deal of controversy with the more conservative elements of Irish society, with both the Fine Gael government and certain local members of the Catholic Church. However, her progressive stance of providing good pay, healthcare and other benefits to her employees and being a benefactor of Sinn Fein, helped earn her a great deal of popular support.

As wells a being a generous ally to Sinn Fein, she also lead one of their irregular militias, which was rare even among the progressive Irish left-wing group. However, her leadership was instrumental in defending the costal town of Bray from the infamous alien attack of '37. However, while she was indeed credited for doing her part to save the town, it was her alliance with the British Wonder 'Superwoman' that prevented Bray's destruction. It has been theorized by many historians that in spite of Ireland's stance on Syndicalism and the Union of Britian, Lena and the mysterious Superwoman retained a close friendship, given the reports of strange sightings near her manor in Rathfarnham.

Katayama Sen, Prime Minister of empire of japan from (1940-1945) appointed by Emperor Hirohito after failed Kodoha coup, it managed to turn Shakai Taishuto, a social democratic party into one of three main parties of Japan. Similar trend has been seen in Reichspakt as well, like Otto Wels becoming chancellor in 1942.

However, his policy of Anti-Syndicalism including crushing of Syndicalist uprising in keijo in 1944 made him hated by Japanese far-left.
