    This makes me really glad the U.K. and France didn’t succumb to extremist and genocidal ideologies in the 20th century, they could really have made even more atrocities in their colonies, i’m Also glad they didn’t try to keep most of their empire by force (well, in the case of franve except Algeria and Djibouti...) had they decolonized even 15 years later like Portugal did, in the context of deadly colonial war large parts of Africa would have been significantly worse off

    War Plan Gray was the name of the plan to capture The Azores, in preparation for the possibility that the Germans might attack the Iberian Peninsula. If we did "conquer" them after WWII I'm sure we'd return them to the Portuguese after the war anyway.

    While the UK and France were hardly innocent of atrocities, I'm also glad they never went to the lengths of violence, insanity, and absolute dedication to racial supremacy that the Nazis and Imperial Japanese did. And as messy as it could be, decolonization was indeed the right call. A Colonial War across all of Africa is just plain horrifying to think about.

    Oh wow, that's cool. Must've taken ages to put that all together.

    Personally I'd organize them by format (Worlda, QBAM etc) or by smaller chunks of time but I am certainly not complaining.

    After the end of World War II, Austria laid claim to the Italian province of South Tyrol, which was historically part of the old Austro-Hungarian Empire and retained a large population of ethnic Germans. This especially in light of Mussolini's attempt at fully Italianizing the region, which saw most German-Speaking South Tyroleans exiled to Nazi Germany, though most returned after the war. There were hopes that the end of the war would help guarantee that Austria and South Tyrol could be reunited, but the allies were worried that taking too much land from Italy (much of which had already been given to Yugoslavia, France, and the new Free Territory of Trieste) would increase the popularity of the communist party in the country. As such, the allies didn't agree to an immediate turnover nor a referendum, though the promise was made that Italy would grant the region greater self-governance.

    While these were put in place, dissatisfaction with their situation and the influx of ethnic Italians lead many in South Tyrol to start a separatist movement by whatever means necessary. Befreiungsausschuss Südtirol (The Committee for the Liberation of South Tyrol) or BAS began a series of bombing campaigns in the 1950's, initially only targeting relics of the fascist government and trying to avoid loss of life. However, things changed after June 12th, 1961- the Night of Fire- when the BAS blew up 37 pylons in an attempt to knock out power for the Bolzano industrial zone. Their goal was to bring South Tyrolean independence to global attention, which it did, but also resulted in many members being arrested and military and police presence in South Tyrol increasing.

    This was what began the more violent phase of the separatist movement, which was unfortunately exacerbated by German and Austrian neo-nazis who infiltrated the BAS. Assassinations and ambushes were made throughout the 1960's, the most infamous of which were the Cima Vallona attacks on June 25, 1967. In all, the BAS terror campaign cost 21 lives, including 15 members of Italian security forces, two civilians, and four of their own members. They also did more to harm South Tyrol's chances for independence than anything. The question of self-determination vs. independence was discussed by the United Nations in 1961, but the terrorist attacks ultimately ensured it would be unsuccessful. The issue was finally settled in 1971 with a new Austro-Italian treaty that guaranteed a greater form of self-governance as an autonomous province, with the additional promise that Austria would not meddle in South Tyrol's affairs. This was deemed satisfactory by many and the BAS ultimately faded away.

    Austria relinquished its claim to South Tyrol in 1992.

    The South Tyrol is basically German, the signs are in German, the Newspapers are in German, the people speak German!
    Why it is part of Italy is understandably confusing?

    It's because of the First World War and the fact that there is a notable Italian minority that lives there.

    I remember thinking this was that weird ad where both sides were right. I mean, on the one hand, honestly, who likes seeing their country cut up? Come on, be honest. OTOH it was also an uproar that went way bigger than it ever ought have.

    Also it annoys me Mexico managed to snag chunks of Oregon, Idaho, and Wyoming it never held during Spanish or independent times in this map, so at least be accurate in your attempts to cause historical controversy. :p

    Looks like the Adams-Onís Treaty line to me, or at least close enough. Sure, there's a case to be made that a lot of that territory wasn't effectively controlled, but it's what the US and Spain agreed was the border.

    I believe @Umbric Man meant that the northern border of the map shown is a little far north, even for the Adams-Onis Treaty line. And I have to agree, just by eyeballing it.

    Yep, my bad, everyone. I definitely could've worded it better since Luminous sums up what I was actually thinking of - effective control so most of Spanish claims to Oregon and Alaska weren't even in my mind, and both the formal Adams-Onis borders and the de-facto Upper California watershed boundary Spain had before 1819.

    Not really a proposal and certainly not a war aim but it still fits best here:
