That's an overly deterministic view of history.

I really cannot say anything beyond...HOW A TIMELINE SO GOOD CAN END?! ITS ENDING EVEN FITS PERFECTLY WITH EVERYTHING. I'm amazed at TTL quality and how deep and at the same fit-for-an-ending the final chapter for this [Hi]story is.
At the same time, it hits hard to know that we are one update away from never reading new content from this TL again...I have to say that this was the first TL in this site to make me cry, break up with total horror and just deeply entrench myself with the characters...It's oddly and fantastically immersive. In short words, THIS IS WONDERFUL STUFF GODDAMNIT.
This timeline is perhaps the first story to make me feel everything on the emotional spectrum at one point or another.I know right? I went from being moved to tears during the Battle of Trieste, to the absolute horror of the nuking of the UAR and laughing at the Soviet fake moon landing. This TL is an absolute diamond on this site.
I saw a NazBol and Neo-Nazi go at it once and let me tell you, shit was wild.
