Who was the last OTL person mentioned in this timeline?
Oh that James Rhodes, better known by Jim, who was the Governor of Ohio when the Kent State shootings happened under him IOTL.The last named OTL person in a position of power was James Rhodes, Vice President of the United States (1973-1981), as part of the administration of President Joshua Blackford.
How have uniforms evolved in countries like the US, Germany, Russia, and Turkey? What were they like by the time of the Pacific War?
In your head cannon, who was Featherston's Secretary of War? There's been a discussion going recently in the Photos thread as there clearly isn't one in the mentioned in the books.
Or he could replace it with the head of hte General Staff as a way to "streamline" everything for him. We see him interacting with General Forrest more when it comes to military matters when it should be SECWAR.Wouldn't Featherston also assume the position of Secretary of War? FWIW, he might not trust anyone but himself, and it also lets him really put his stamp on the Confederate Army and Army Air Force.
