    I gotta check how many states America has now with the Ryukyu Islands part of it. :p

    David, this is one of the most amazing timelines and stories I've ever read. You've kept this timeline realistic but honoring its source material, as well as plot twists and parallels to OTL, in an incredibly balanced and enticing manner. Your writing was joyful, your research impeccable, your dedication awe-inspiring.

    Thank you so much for the ride. I bow my hat to you for this. You've earned all the acclaim you got for this over the years.

    This was the TL that brought me to the site, so in a way, it's sad to see it over. But it is one hell of a piece of writing, and it went out with a magnificent bang. A toast to you, David.

    I think it is 78 now. Just count one if the previous lists and add Ryukyu to it.

    Did any borders change between 1999 and 2009?

    Wonderful TL, David. I'm sure HT wouldn't have been able to come up with anything even 10% as good as this. :)

    Excellent conclusion, David. Seriously, the wait was worth it. I sure hope somebody writes some sequels to this someday. So much material to work with. XD

    I finished this just a few days ago, and I must say this was absolutely amazing. It inspired me to write my continuation of For Want of a Nail in a similar fashion, but this shows every sign of outclassing a typing I can hope to write.

    David Bar Elias, you should be proud of yourself for this amazing accomplishment.

    I do hope this isn't necroposting, but here's a map for President McClellan.

    And here's another one. :) Disclaimer: neither this nor the President McClellan map necessarily fit DbE's vision of the world, and represent a "cover" made by an in-universe spec-fic fan.

    Thank you for your additions. I appreciate the glimpses they give of Greg Bliss's ATL "classical" spec-fiction. They're definitely canon.
