Is a ACP victory the canon one?
With Fascism or national monarchism spreading to many American successor states or Britain as well under Oswald?
I do look forward to the follow up timelines which, if I see correctly, continue with cold war?
Also wonder post war German Colonial Empire's size. I can see Japan try and whip up anti colonial sentiment, but I don't they would appeal to "revolutionary" republican leaning nationalism, probably more nationalism built along traditional chiefs and monarchs with progressive modernization thrown in.

Added the Ottoman/ Mohammedan Caliphate Sphere since I had forgotten that in the post :p

TTL C-PS Japanese victory will be the "canon one" so to speak.

Fascist Royalism and National Monarchism will spread to American successor states, Britain, Africa and Asia in nearly all of these TL's (as will socialism/ communism in a few) but not to the same extent in every one.

Yes any TL where the ACP and the C-PS are victorious Japan will do exactly that against Germany and any other leftover Colonial/ Imperial Power beside their own.
 
Chapter 739: The Emperor's Uncle
Chapter 739: The Emperor's Uncle

Zaitao (born 23 June 1887), courtesy name Shuyuan, art name Yeyun, was a Manchu prince of the Qing dynasty. He was a half-brother of the Chinese Guangxu Emperor and an uncle of Puyi, the last Emperor of China and the Emperor of Manchuria, as well as the second Manchukuo/ Manchurian Emperor Pujie. Zaitao was born in the Manchu Aisin Gioro clan as the seventh son of Yixuan (Prince Chun). His family was under the Plain Red Banner of the Eight Banners. He was adopted by an older male relative, Yimo (奕謨; 1850–1905), who had no son to succeed him. In 1890, during the reign of the Guangxu Emperor, Zaitao was granted the title of a second class zhenguo jiangjun. He was promoted to a buru bafen fuguo gong in 1894. In 1898, Zaitao was transferred from Yimo's lineage to the lineage of Yihe (奕詥; 1844–1868), Prince Zhong of the Second Rank, as Yihe's adopted son because Yihe had no son to succeed him. He was made an acting beizi in the same year. In 1902, he was promoted to beile. In December 1908, Zaitao was made an acting junwang (second-rank prince), even though nominally he still remained as a beile. In the same year, he and Tieliang (鐵良) were appointed as zongsi jicha (總司稽察; a type of inspector-official). A year later, during the reign of the Xuantong Emperor, Zaitao was put in charge of the Military Consultancy (軍諮處). In 1910, he visited eight countries; Japan, the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Austria, and Russia to observe and learn from their more advanced armed forces. In May 1910, he was sent to Britain as an ambassador to represent the Qing Empire at the funeral of King Edward VII. In 1911, Zaitao was appointed as the Minister of the Military Consultancy (軍諮大臣) and placed in charge of the Imperial Guard (禁衛軍), as well as being appointed as chief of general staff. He was also designated as the commander of the Mongol Bordered Yellow Banner. In January 1912, after the fall of the Qing Empire, Zaitao, along with Zaixun and others from the imperial clan, founded the Royalist Party (宗社黨) to preserve their ancestral temple. In 1917, when the warlord Zhang Xun briefly restored Puyi to the throne, Zaitao was appointed as the Commanding Officer of the Imperial Guards.

In 1931, Zaitao was recruited by the Nationalist Government of the Republic of China to join the National Crisis Conference (國難會議). But when Wang Jingwei split with his part of the Kuomintang from Chiang Kai-shek and joined a more Coprospist, pan-Asian route, Zaitao stayed with them. Briefly helping to modernize the Manchu Imperial Guard and the Imperial Manchurian Army said positions later fell to Puyi's brother Pujie, who would use them to secure his own power as the new Manchurian Emperor. As a result Zaitao was part of the Imperial Manchurian Privy Council (Chinese: 參議府), the General Affairs State Council (Chinese: 國務院), the Legislative Council (Chinese: 立法院), the State Council and a member of the Coprospist Concordia Association. At the same time he financed horses and as he once his early years, he studied cavalry warfare in the Saumur Cavalry School in France he served as a consultant on horses in the artillery formation of the Imperial Manchurian Army, as well as their later mechanized and motorized forces. Later Zaitao served as a special envoy and military adviser in Beijing, Empire of Yankoku and Nanjing, Imperial National Han China. In the Manchurian Capital Mukden he was also very interested in the Manchurian Opera (starting with the Mukden Opera), a interest only increasing after the Second Great War and the Chinese Civil War, when he visited Japanese Opera, Yankoku Opera, National Han Chinese Opera and Taikoku Opera as well. He was trained in both long and short range types of performing martial arts, and specialized in playing monkey roles in opera. Zaitao was tutored by famous Manchurian, Yankoku, National Han Chinese and Taikoku opera actors himself and helped found a few operas throughout Manchuria and other parts of the Co-Prosperity Sphere before he died in Mukden in 1970 at the age of 83. His remains were buried in a shrine inside a park right across the street to the new Mukden Opera he helped to plan and partly also financed.

Chapter 740: Austrian-Hungarian State Catholicism
Chapter 740: Austrian-Hungarian State Catholicism

Inside of Austria-Hungary, Bishop Alois Hudal had publicly embraced the pan-Germanic national monarchism he had previously condemned, proclaiming that he wished to be a "servant and herald" of "the total German cause" once the Austrian-Hungarian Empire had formed again. As a committed anti-Communist that also opposed liberalism, Hudal had been a critic of parliamentary governance even before the rise of fascism, nationalism, austrofascim and their later monarchic counterparts. His very own ideas were similar to the political and economic ideas of such fascist politicians as Dollfuss and Kurt Schuschnigg (Austria), Franz von Papen (Germany), and António de Oliveira Salazar (Portugal), making Hudal one of the supporters of so called Clerical-Fascism, or Clerical-Fascist-Monarchism, the combination of fascist/ nationalist, royalist/ monarchist and religious ideas into a more clerical/ religious form of Fascist Royalism/ National Monarchism or Austrofascist Monarchism. Arguing that with the reborn National Monarchism inside the Austrian-Hungarian Empire Austria needed a strong unifying National Church itself to unify the multinational nation alongside German dominance and Hungarian support. The best way to do this believed Hudal, was to announce himself Archbishop and leader of the new Austrian Church, that officially made Catholicism the State Religion of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire. Meant to unify the United States of Austria further, not all Catholic Germans, Hungarians, Czechs, Slovaks, Slovenes, Poles and Croats supported this move, but resistance was even greater among the Roman-Catholic, Greek-Catholic, Protestant,Greek Orthodox and Jews, like the Eastern Hungarian, Ukrainian, Romanian, Serbs and Jews. These Orthodox were seen as too close to the Eastern Church that had split from the Catholic one in it's Shizm, but Hudal even disliked the Mohammedans and loyalist of the Ottomans much more then he already disliked the Greek Orthodox, the Greek Orientals and the Evangelic or Jewish minorities inside the United States of Austria. He therefore hoped to mass-convert and challenge them, turning Austria-Hungary into a solely Catholic State as the new Archbishop and leader of the new Catholic Austrian State Church.

In this position he also supported the Ustaše movement led by Poglavnik and Prime Minister Ante Pavelić in Croatia, where the Croatian Catholic Church formed a local Branch of his Austrian-Hungarian Catholic Church. There Cardinal Aloysius Viktor Stepinac (Croatian: Alojzije Viktor Stepinac) was a Croatian prelate of the Catholic Church. A cardinal, Stepinac served as Archbishop of Zagreb from 1937 until his death in 10 February 1960, a period which included the fascist royalist rule of the Ustaše beginning with the Axis Central Power occupation in 1941. The new Austrian National Monarchist Catholic Church, similar to the Imperial French National Monarchist Catholic Church and the Spanish National Monarchist Catholic Church were supported by Pope Pius XII, who himself was under pressure and force by the Italian Kingdom/ Roman Empire to directly support the Axis Central Powers, their governments, parties, ideology and religious ambitions. Archbishop Aloysius Stepinac believed that "Croats and Serbs are of two worlds... that will never move closer to one another without an act of God" and that therefore they alongside Protestants, Jews and Mohammedans had to be forced by the Ustaše and other Austrian Catholic Church groups and supporters to become Catholics or be eliminated, as "The Schism [Orthodoxy] is the greatest curse in Europe, almost greater than Protestantism. There is no morality, no principle, there is no truth, no justice, no honesty in Orthodoxy." To archive this Archbishop Aloysius Stepinac put himself at the top of the newly formed independent Croatian Catholic Church. Archbishop Aloysius Stepinac had before in 1940 celebrated the 700th year of the Franciscan Order (he was a member of), when the order's Minister General Leonardo Bello came to Zagreb for the event. During his visit, Stepinac joined the Third Order of Saint Francis, on 29 September 1940. But Archbishop Aloysius Stepinac also celebrated the period from 29 June 1940 to 29 June 1941 as the overall 1,300 years anniversary of Christianity among the Croats. Now with the political and religious support of the Pope and Archbishop Alois Hudal, Aloysius Stepinac unified the Croatian Catholic church and organizations around himself, subordinating them directly to his authority. He was unable to achieve this, probably because he was young and relatively inexperienced, and did not command the level of respect and authority usually accorded an Archbishop of Zagreb.

In his ambitions Archbishop Aloysius Stepinac was supported by the Ustaše who supported violent aggression or force to convert Serbo-Croatian speaking Orthodox believers to Roman Catholicism. The Ustaše similar to Archbishop Hudal and Stepinac held the position that Eastern Orthodoxy, as a symbol of Serbian nationalism, was their greatest foe and never recognized the existence of any Serb people on the territories of Croatia or Bosnia, as they recognized only "Croats of the Eastern faith". They called Bosniaks "Croats of the Islamic faith", but tolerated Mohammedans and in fact received some support from Bosniak Mohammedans during the Second Great War War as they formed the Handschar Division during the riots, rebellions and uprisings in Austria-Hungarian parts of former Yugoslavia. As a quasi protectorate of Austria-Hungary during the Second Great War and to a extent of the German Empire inside the Axis Central Powers to the Ustaše would control the local Austrian Government, while Archbishop Aloysius Stepinac would control the local church. Together they oppressed local Serbs, Serbian Nationalism and forced Serbs to convert to their Catholic Croatian Church as a part of the Austrian Catholic Church in hopes this would increase their loyalty to the Austrian-Hungarian Empire and decrease their loyalty to other Slavs or the Orthodox Faith that Hudal and Stepinac viewed as a opposition and danger to the Austrian-Hungarian Empire/ United States of Austria. They even religiously encouraged the Ustaše to fight against Protestants, Orthodox, Mohammedans and Jews in a holy crusade by the Croatian Army, as well as the volunteer groups of the the Croatian Division and the Creation Legion that fought not only the various Yugoslav Partisan groups, but also alongside the Eastern Front. Both the Croatian volunteers and the regular Croatian Army, the Ustaše and the Croatian Catholic Church also launched a campaign of genocide against Serbs in Croatia and Bosnia, including concentration camps.

Ante Pavelić as the Austro-Hungarian PM?!?! Has the world gone mad?!?!?!
No, no :coldsweat: just PM/ Local Leader in Croatia and Slavonia (independent from the directly Austrian and the Hungarian governed part of A-H/ the United States of Austria). While some of this Croat forces also heavily raid and ethnic cleans parts of Bosnia and Herzegovina from Serbs (sometiems alongside Bosniaks "Croats of the Islamic faith" aka the Handschar Division, sometiems agaisnt Mohammedan and other local partisan and rebell forces). Just like China a complete Balcan Peninsula/ Former Yugislavia Partisan Area/ Groups map will soon come with a chapter.

Chapter 741: Imperial Japanese Army and Navy Ships, Transport Boats in 1942/1943
Chapter 741: Imperial Japanese Army and Navy Ships, Transport Boats in 1942/1943

Landing craft carriers or landing craft depot ships were an innovative type of amphibious warfare ship developed ironically at first by the Imperial Japanese Army during the Second great War. The prototype was developed in secrecy under the pseudonyms Ryujo Maru and Fuso Maru using features later adopted by the Imperial Japanese Navy and other navies for dock landing ships and amphibious transport docks. Additional ships were built after combat experience validated the concept, but most were completed after the Japanese invasions of the early war, and used primarily as troopships during later operations. Late war Imperial Japanese amphibious assault ships bear a strong similarity to this concept and further modernized it heavily. At first many of this Imperial Japanese Army and Imperial Japanese Navy ships and boats only served as transport for landing crafts, but with the continued war the concept was improved, so that the landing crafts no longer were simply transported aboard these carrier transport ships across the upper deck, but alongside sideways cranes that also allowed for their faster deployment and manning with invasion ship crews for landings. The overall concept would greatly improve and increase the Japanese ability for naval landings, as some of this ships and transport were even further increased similar to the Allies by adding further guns, machine-guns, anti-aircraft guns and ship guns to directly support these landings alongside Japanese cruisers, destroyers, battleships and carriers much more then the former generation of landing boats and ships had been able to do before. This made the Imperial Japanese Army and the Imperial Japanese Navy much more mobile and able in their future landings and invasions in Papua/ Nuigui (New Guinea), the Solomones, Fiji, Samoa, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, Bengal and Ceylon.

At the same time the Imperial Japanese Army used the junk alongside other confiscated local Asian junks (Japanese Shuinsen, Chinese chuán, or even Malay/ Javanese jong) transport boats, out of metal or wood to increase their own transportation, at least in coastal waters or over short island distances. As it was clear that such acquired and confiscated often primitive and unfit for military service boats and ships were easy targets for the Allies, either by airplane naval bombers or submarines, the Imperial Japanese Army soon outfitted them with leftover older weapons and equipment (most coming from their Chinese Puppets or older American and European equipment send to China before the Second Great War in the Pacific) to give them at least somewhat of protection. While dept-charges were not so often found on these, anti aircraft guns were often installed, to protect them against enemy aircraft, sometimes even submarines and help them support landings of forces or supplies even under some kind of enemy fire, at least in theory. Because of this special junks were even created as lightly armored small coastal transports by the Imperial Japanese Army and the Imperial Japanese navy, were some of them were used as ferry barges, transports, gunboats, convoy escorts, minelayers, minesweepers or even parts of pontoon bridges. But with the lack of some resources and parts, the Imperial Japanese Army and Navy, as well as their counterparts in the Co-Prosperity Sphere even used small boat and even repurposed aircraft engines to give at least some slow mobility to these special junks to be used as transport ships, troopships, fuel tankers, amphibious landing craft, dock landing ships, coastal and river patrol boats that were locally even used to increase the defenses of local coastal and river cities, harbors and even some of the Pacific island bases, even if their overall military purpose and use was highly questioned by all sides after the Second Great War, the Chinese Civil War and the Pacific War by the Allies as well as by the Co-Prosperity Sphere.
 
Chapter 742: Caribbean Islands during the Battle for the Caribbean
Chapter 742: Caribbean Islands during the Battle for the Caribbean

Over the course of the Second Great War, the United States assumed Britain's defense responsibilities in the Caribbean. In September 1940, the two countries agreed to the Lend-Lease Agreement (known as the Bases-for-Destroyers Agreement). It involved the loan of American destroyers in return for leasing, rent free for ninety-nine years, eleven naval and air bases on British territory, including the Bahamas, Jamaica, Antigua, St. Lucia, Trinidad and Tobago, British Guiana, and Bermuda, as well as Newfoundland. The eastern Caribbean became the forward edge of American defense strategy, formalized in the Panama Declaration of 1939. American strategists called the West Indies as "the bulwark that we watch." More than 50 percent of the supplies sent to Europe and Africa from the United States were shipped from ports in the Gulf of Mexico and passed through the Caribbean. In 1942, the United States Caribbean Defense Command reached a total of 119,000 personnel, half of them stationed in Panama to protect the canal from another anticipated Japanese attack. Meanwhile, the German High Sea Fleet, the Imperial French Fleet, the Royal Italian Navy and the Royal Spanish Navy inflicted massive damage on shipping in the Caribbean in 1942. By the end of that year, U-boats, auxiliary cruisers and armed transport ships, as well as cruisers, destroyers, battleships, carriers and aircraft carriers of the Axis Central Powers operating in the Caribbean had sunk 483 ships, at least half of which were oil tankers. Parts of the Caribbean had been colonized by countries that now came under Axis Central Powers occupation, or switched sides to ally with the Axis Central Powers. Aruba and Curaçao remained loyal to the Dutch government-in-exile, but because they housed valuable refineries that processed Venezuelan petroleum, they were placed under British protection. Both islands were subjected to German attacks in Operation Neuland. In 1942 they were transferred to the United States, which had also occupied the Dutch Colony of Surinam and French Guiana in 1941 to secure its bauxite mines and prevent any attacks on nearby British Guiana or also nearby oil producing Venezuela that was important to the Allied oil supplies and transport routes to the African Theatre and Front.

Martinique and Guadeloupe came under the control of Fascist France, the later Royal France or Imperial France. At the same time the Americans, British, Free France and some local governments feared the German, Italian, French or Spanish minorities in some of their countries like Argentina, America, Brazil and Uruguay, as well as Dutch, French and Spanish former colonies or large local ethnic groups of those and other Axis Central Powers countries as well, as there was no way for the Allies or local government to know for sure if any of these ethnic groups, or even their own citizens and populations harbored any sympathies and support for the Axis Central Powers, or even worked as spies, informants and saboteurs for the Axis Central Powers, similar how on the Pacific Coast the governments and militarizes that remained neutral or had joined the Allies in Mexico, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Chile feared ethnic minorities of the Co-Prosperity Sphere like Japanese, Chosen/ Koreans, Chinese (of all ethnics), Siamese/ Thai, Vietnamese, Cambodians, Burmese as well as many kinds of Indian and Southeast Asia ethnic groups as well. One of the major Allies accomplishments was the fact that the American and British pressure ensured that several French ships, including its only aircraft carrier, Béarn, remained interned at Martinique, so that they could not make contact to the Axis Central Powers or directly support their operations in the Caribbean. At the same time thousands of refugees fled, many going to Dominica, while an anti-Imperial French and anti-Axis Central Powers movement grew. Many of this islands, North American and South American territories however switched their allegiance to their own Governments-in-Exile, or outright the Allies. That naturally meant that after the End of the Second Great War in 1944 the Axis Central Powers that claiming these colonies, or desired their own ones in the Caribbean returned, this time without much American or British Naval Powers opposing their ambitions.
 
It’s kind of funny that IJA and IJN have their own army, navy and Air Force brand. Even in ttl they still refuse to work together and make their own army navy.

They try to cooperate and work together better then OTL, but still each will have/ want their own branch of everything just to not be fully depending on the other...
 
Chapter 743: Chilean Choices
Chapter 743: Chilean Choices

At first Chile tried to remain neutral when war broke out in Europe, as they had close trading links with the German Empire and also a long Prussian Army tradition of advisers, training and uniforms in the Chilean Army. Ironically enough as Argentina grew closer to the German Empire and the Axis Central Powers, one of it's South American rivals Chile actively started to distanced itself from the Axis Central Powers, and the Chilean government even took steps to dismiss pro-German military officers from within the Chilean Army. Much of this was also, because of a attempted Nazi-backed coup in September 1938 that turned most of the Chilean population against the German community within Chile. Under the direction of Carlos Keller and Jorge González von Marées the National Socialist Movement of Chile took up position similar to those of Adolf Hitler following its formation in 1932. The coup itself was also known as the Seguro Obrero Massacre took place on September 5, 1938, in the midst of a heated three-way election campaign between the ultraconservative Gustavo Ross Santa María, the radical Popular Front's Pedro Aguirre Cerda, and the newly formed Popular Alliance candidate, Carlos Ibáñez del Campo. The National Socialist Movement of Chile supported Ibáñez's candidacy, which had been announced on September 4. In order to preempt Ross's victory, the National Socialists mounted a coup d'état that was intended to take down the rightwing government of Arturo Alessandri Palma and place Ibáñez in power. The coup also failed as more direct support from Nazi Germany never came after the German's own military Coup against the National Socialist Government that ended Nazi rule there. The more domestic Chilean version of fascism and fascist royalist tried to avoid fading away and had adopted the name Vanguardia Popular Socialista before being disbanded in 1941. In 1940 some ex-members also founded the corporatist Movimiento Nacionalista de Chile and members of this latter group were instrumental in the later rise of Fatherland and Monarchy movement that would bring the regime of Augusto Pinochet later on.

But long before that relations with Axis Central Powers countries still decreased thanks to the 1938 support for the Chilean coup and completely broke once war was declared in 1943. Throughout the duration of the war, Chile stationed navy ships around its territory of Easter Island to protect it from a potential Japanese attack against South America, and military presence was strengthened at the vital harbors of Antofagasta, Valparaíso and Talcahuano. Chilean merchant naval ships also aided Peruvian, Colombian and Cuban ships in patrolling the area around the Panama Canal Zone. At the same time Chile was quit nervous about it's small Japanese minority of a few thousand people and carefully watched their every step with the help of the Chilean police and army, while the border to Argentinia was closely guarded to avoid the German and Italian minorities there from crossing into Chile and serving as spies, saboteurs and infiltrators. To that extent starting from 1943, the Chilean prison camp of Pisagua became the site of wartime internment for citizens of enemy nations when Chile entered the Second Great War on the Allied side briefly. Around a year later in 1944 after the Second Great War between the Allies and the Axis Central Powers officially ended, the Chilean government released these prisoners and claimed to only have done so because of American financial, economical and military pressure, against their very own will. The Americans claimed this to be a lie and the Germans knew so too, but with the Chilean German military connection and tradition, the German Empire backed both Argentina and Chile to balance each other off in South America and to support German economic and military interests in the area, like during the Brazilian Civil War later. While Chile became more and more influenced by the Japanese Empire and the Co-Prosperity Sphere, Argentina moved closer to the Axis Central Powers, increasing their rivaling ambitions against one another and Brazil in South America once more within the next few years.
 
Chapter 744: The Red Torii during the Second Great War
Chapter 744: The Red Torii during the Second Great War

During the Second Great War, Imperial Japan spread it's State Shinto and Buddhism throughout all of Asia and the Pacific that it's Co-Prosperity Sphere directly controlled. This was partly done thanks to conversion of native animistic tribes, the incorporation of various local Animist, Buddhist and Shamanist religions, cults and sects (in Japan, China and the rest of East Asia and Southeast Asia), but also with propaganda and educational campaigns as well. In many parts of mainland China, but even more so in Southeast Asia and the Pacific this was also done by the Red Torri, the Japanese and Co-Prosperity Sphere of the Red Cross, where Shinto Priests (Kannushi meaning "proprietor of kami" and shinshoku meaning "god's employee") worked alongside Miko (Shrine Maidens or priestess/ female shaman) to not only preach and prey, but actively work as doctors and nurses inside Japanese build hospitals, field hospitals, as well as local shrines and temples, were wounded Co-Prosperity Sphere soldiers were hospitalized and nursed back to health the best way possible. This also meant that they would pray and preach the Shinto religion to those they nursed and healed and pray to the Kami and ancestors with them. Further more Japanese State Shinto that the Red Torii was officially a part and branch of, used their local medical supplies and work to preach to native tribes and ethnic groups. Those of this groups that were Animist, Buddhist, Shamanistic or Hindu/ Hindi in any way or form quickly told by the Red Torii and the State Shinto Organizations that they were a fellow branch of traditional Asian religions, brothers in mind and spirit so to say. Because of this the Red Torii and the State Shintoism supported many of this local religious traditions, sects and cults to help them form a better organization and hierarchy, so they could rise to become true local ethnic religions for their people, while at the same time being incorporated into overall Shinto, Buddhist, Animistic, Shamanistic, Hindu/ Hindi and other traditions and religious believes, as long as they did not come from Europe or America in any way or form and could therefore be exploited by anti-American, Anti-European, anti-Imperial, anti-Colonial Coprospist ideology and propaganda.

Because the Red Torii was so directly linked and involved with State Shintoism, local Japanese and Co-Prosperity Sphere governments as well as the army and navy forces in general, their overall resources and supplies were much more limitless, then that of many of it's Allied or Axis Central Powers counterparts, like the Red Cross. At the same time the Red Torii was also much more limited and hindered then the Red Cross, because of the overall industrial and infrastructural limitations of the Imperial Japanese/ Co-Prosperity Sphere industries and medical complexes, as well as the fact that the Allies purposely withheld some information and research about medicine and medicament's from both the Axis Central Powers and the Co-Prosperity Sphere to prevent their enemies from using it on their soldiers. At the same time State Shinto did not only supply the Red Torii with hospitals and medical offices all over the Co-Prosperity Sphere, but also supply schools, were Shinto priests would also be used for spiritual guidance. At the same time State Shinto and the Red Torii did not only focus on healing and spiritual guidance in this schools and hospitals there, as since 1942/1943 these schools were also used by the Red Torii and State Shinto organizations as provisional hospitals with students performing nurse tasks on a regular basis as “volunteers”. The Imperial Japanese Army and other local Co-Prosperity Sphere militarizes and governments also used this newly established and even taken over older old schools for their own Coprospist education and propaganda, but also for paramilitary training of the youth to become radical and fanatic soldiers for the Co-Prosperity Sphere armies and navies in the future. Therefore their Coprospist teachers, priests and military instructors in these schools claimed that if they were not ready to fight and sacrifice themselves for Coprospism and the Co-Prosperity Sphere, American and European long-nosed white Colonial Imperialist would return to enslave them, their families friends and loved ones, juts like they had enslaved or tried to enslave their parents and grandparents before that for centuries.
 
Chapter 745: Italian Libya, Libya Italiano
Chapter 745: Italian Libya, Libya Italiano

The coastal parts of Italian Libya became an integral part of Italy under a law of 9 January 1939, and Libya came to be called "the Fourth Shore of Italy" (Quarta Sponda). Libyans were given "Special Italian Citizenship" that was only valid within Libya. Libyans were allowed join the Muslim Association of the Lictor, a branch of the National Fascist Party (the later National Fascist Monarchist Party). This allowed the creation of Libyan military units within the Italian army: the 1st Sibille and 2nd Pescatori. The units had Italian officers with Libyan NCOs and soldiers. The Libyan divisions were loyal to Italy and performed well in combat. Squadrons of Libyan Spahis served as light cavalry. These measures reduced the appeal of the Libyan resistance movement and kept it mostly limited to Fezzan, and even there it remained weak before the arrival of Free French, British and American troops in the area. Libya saw some of the fiercest fighting of the North African Campaign. At the start of the war, Italy aimed to extend Libya's borders to the south and annex a land bridge connecting it to Italian East Africa. In September 1940, Italy launched the Western Desert Campaign with its invasion of Egypt. That December, the British counterattacked with Operation Compass, which pushed Italian forces back over the border, occupied all of Cyrenaica, and captured most of the Tenth Army. With German support, this territory was regained during Operation Sonnenblume, though the Allies successfully lifted the Siege of Tobruk. The Battle of Gazala in 1942 finally drove the Allies from Tobruk and back into Egypt. The Second Battle of El Alamein in Egypt allowed the Axis Central Powers to push from Libya deeper into Egypt, ending the Western Desert Campaign for good. Until then the Kingdom of Italy, by now the reborn Roman Empire once again had incorporated former French Tunis into Italian Libya (Quarta Sponda) and renamed the western part of Libya Libya with Tunis Africa, afetr the ancient Roman Province whiel the East of Libya remained Cyrenaica after it had already be named after a ancient Roman Province. All of this coastal regions however were directly administrated as another part of Italy by the Roman Senate directly.

At the same time Senator Mussolini, still the Friend of Mohammedanism, in hopes to gain local loyality and a fifths column against the Allies and British in their remaining Asian and African colonies had began fielding a local gendarmerie (African and Arab), meharistes (camel troops), zaptie (carabinieri), Sahariani (desert troops), spahi (irregular cavalry) units and had began to train the Arab Lictor Youth as a paramilitary, so those forces could help guard, stabilize and secure Italian Africa and the back of the Axis Central Power front liens against local uprisings and Allied offensives. Thanks to new roads and railways around 40,000 locals Mohammedans would fight for the Italian/ Romans during the Second Great War, while around 80,000 people, up to one third of the Cyrenaican population (or one around tents out of a total population of 893,774) was deportee out of the area or into concentration camps while over 225,000 died during the uprisings and military campaigns. This way there was now room for Italian/ Roman settlers and colonists, whose numbers would soon rise to over 100,000 before the Second Great War. The use of local auxillary forces against local rebellions and uprisings was a brainchild of Senator Mussolini who proudly claimed “ no matter who falls in the fight for Libya, he will make room for true Italo-Roman colonists”. The major Italo-Roman population centers were the towns and cities at the coats, as well as the coastline at first, but harsh treatment of the locals, denying of food and other supplies, as well as the Second Great War would increase the overall Italo-Roman percentage. Soon plans were made to make the coast a majorly Italian colony until the 1950s and 1960s, including overall 500,000 Italian/ Roman settlers and colonists until the whole Quarta Sponda was Italo-Roman while native auxiliary would guard the interior of the colonies. However after 1944 the Italian Kingdom/ Roman Empire managed to bring in around 100,000 colonial settlers each two years, so the numbers for Italo-Romans until the 1950s were risen to 1,000,000 to ensure that Quarta Sponda and all of Italian North Africa became one of the famous European Colonial Lands and European Majority Regions of Africa until then.
 
Chapter 746: The Chin National Front and Chin National Army
Chapter 746: The Chin National Front and Chin National Army

During the Arakan Campaign and Chindits insurgence of Allied forces into Burma, that would last till 1944, the British also encouraged and supported local independence and autonomy movements from the Kingdom of Burma in hopes to weaken this newest Co-Prosperity Sphere member state and the Imperial Japanese most western front by doing so. In the Burmese Northwest at the border to British India/ Raj, the Imperial Japanese Army had advanced westmost until 1942/1943. Because of that British commandos contacted Chin-Kuki-Mizo leaders, as the name "Chin" was disputed. During the British era, the British used the compound term 'Chin-Kuki-Mizo' to group the Kukish language speaking people, and the later Government of Burma and India inherited this. Chin nationalist leaders in Burma's Chin State popularized the term "Chin" following Burma's independence from Britain with Japanese help to rally their local groups under one unified banner. While the Chin hoped the Burmese Kingdom would allow them to have a independent "special administrative division", not a full-fledged state of their own, the regions importance for the Royal Burmese economics was to huge for the Burmese Royal Government to give into any such demands. Because of this the Chin-Kuki-Mizo as a Sino-Tibetan ethnolinguistic group in the Burmese northwest suddenly had very open ears for the Allies and British once again. The 1886 'Chin Hills Regulation Act' stated that the British would govern the Chins separately from the rest of Burma, which allowed for traditional Chin chiefs to remain in power while Britain was still allotted power via indirect rule, but the new Royal Burmese government wished to have a much more direct rule over all of Burmese Nation State claimed areas, outraging and frightening various local ethnic groups. Suddenly the Chin advocated for their own independent Chin State and instead of continuing its traditional rule of chiefs they would introduce more democratic reforms and elected government. To archive this goal the Chin National Front (Burmese: ချင်းအမျိုးသားတပ်ဦး; CNF) as a Chin nationalist political organization formed in the Kingdom of Burma, with the goal of seeking a federal union of Burma, based on self-determination, ethnic equality and democracy for all ethnic minority groups, not only the Burmese ethnic majority inside the Burmese Kingdom. The Chin even elected their first President, serving as the leader of this claimed Chin State region, as well as the leader of the Chin National Front itself. The Chin National Front stated that they are not based on a class of people, a religious belief, a region or an ideology but works for the benefit of all Chin people. The Chin National Front welcomes and invites any nation, state, organization, and individuals to join in the effort to restore democracy, freedom and federalism in the Coprospist Kingdom of Burma, as they lacked other direct supporters and Allies after 1944 besides occasionally the British from British Raj. When negotiation with the Coprospist Burmese Kingdom failed the Chin National Front formed the Chin National Army (Burmese: ချင်းအမျိုးသားတပ်မတော်; abbreviated CNA) is a Chin nationalist insurgent group in 1942, aided with supplies, weapons and training by British soldiers, as well as Chindits. Soon they started a regional uprising and insurgence against the Imperial Japanese Army and the Imperial Burmese Army, that would contest their control in the area. Their contest in the region would force the later Co-Prosperity Sphere Invasion of Assam and Bengal deeper into India/ British Raj by Japanese, Burmese, Indian, Taikoku and Tibetan forces to outflank their region by going east over Imphal in the Manipur princely state as well as west over the former Kingdom of Arakan (Mrauk U) along the coast. Unwillingly and accidentally their uprising would play a heavy role for this Imperial Japanese planning and greatly help them come up with a false offensive into Manipur/ Assam to lure in more British and Indian Allied forces, so that their later main push in the Assam-Bengal Campaign could come over Chittagong and Tripura princely state cut them off in the east of India, while pushing west towards Dacca and Calcutta, cutting them off completely according to the Japanese plans. While not all of this Co-Prosperity plan for the invasion of India into Assam-Bengal and Ceylon would work out as planned, later historians can't deny that the Chin National Uprising and Guerilla fight while helping the Allies at first in 1942 and 1943 would later lead to one of their most major defeats in the history of British India and the loss of their traditional militarily, industrial and political power base in Bengal.
 
Actually have 4-6 chapters nearly finished, but I f-ed up by being mean to my girl again. She's in a stressfull phase of her life (so am I as my grandpa has chancer) so we argued about nothing, one word let to another and she kicked me out. She's my muse and I truely find inspiration in her whatever we do, she helps me with my physical disability and does everything she can, but when she gets angry and stressfull because all of it I sometiems shout (very ugly things) back and that's not so cool as I tend to get really mean then, without meaning or wanting to. Part of it is because my physical disability brings me down in mood and faith often too. Never had somone who not only simply accepts me wit hmost of my failures and my physical disability, but actually look out for me and care so deeply and I keep destroyying it with stupid words, a few times even lying to her because I'm not the man I once was, or the one I could have been before this accident that changed everything. I somethimes wish I had her kind of naive heart and pure love, that I wouldn't be so me to her, but able to give her bakc all the good things she does for me. Maybe we're not supposed to be, most likely because of how I am treating her and making ehr feel in all of this. I just wish I could be the person she loves and deserves. What I'm trying to say is I don't know how often or when I'll write here as writing helps distracting me, while I'm at a loss of options and ideas how to fix all the stupid things I did to her, so don't wonder if new chapters will come in not so often anymore.
