Thousand-Week Reich - A 'realistic' Nazi victory scenario


From the reddit

With the fall of France, Spain decided to occupy the Moroccan protectorate and turn it into a Spanish territory under the reign of Mohammed V of the Alaouite Dynasty. While the Alaouites have been rather quiet under their Spanish lords, Moroccan independence movements have started to become more popular across the entirety of the territory. Combine this with a general anti-Spaniard sentiment among the population and the great ambitions of Francisco Franco regarding Morocco and the region has become a ticking time bomb ready to explode into civil conflict.

Without anyone to stop them, Spain appears to have simply annexed them

Idk find out and tell us
After a quick look at Spain in WW2, it seems the primary reason was that Franco's demands for joining the Axis were straight up impossible. Germany would have to provide grain, fuel, armed vehicles, military aircraft and other armaments, as well as heavy fortification of the Canary Islands. These demands were so frustrating that Hitler quoted "I prefer to have three or four of my own teeth pulled out than to speak to that man again!". It doesn't seem like Germany obtaining a white peace with Britain changes any of this, so i don't see much reason for Morocco to go to Spain if Spain hasn't done anything to earn it

I was under the impression that the main reason Spain didn't align closer towards the Axis was fear of being involved in the war in the west with Britain and later the US.

I don't know exactly though, and frankly this was all made a long time ago and in hindsight there may be some things that don't make sense.

In all honesty, I feel it was more because Franco didn't want to get Spain dragged into another war after being devastated by the Spanish Civil War, a war of which I don't think they've ever recovered from throughout the entirety of WWII IOTL, and I don't expect them to recover from ITTL either.

Which of course...yeah, it'd mean it'd make zero sense for Spain to get French Morocco, it would technically still be under Vichy rule here unless Germany was willing to throw such a bone to Spain for some reason.
