What if nuclear weapons never existed? What if the people who lead up their invention never excised, Marie Curie, Albert Einstein, J. Robert Oppenheimer, etc... or if the thought of inventing them never occurs to anyone. How would this change the end of World War Two and the cold war? Operation Downfall would take place to start with wouldn't it. This might lead to a divided Japan with a communist north and capitalist south. Would Churchill's Operation Unthinkable still not happen? Or would World War Three begin almost immediately after World War Two? What if instead of nuclear weapons never being invented they just are devoped later in this war? If Operation Unthinkable still wasn't achievable, how would cold proxy wars play out with a divided Japan? Would America help more in the fight for Indochina to stay a French colony? Would they deploy troops in other European colonies because of a greater red scare? Perhaps a Indian War of Independence? Perhaps this hatred of communism backfires and colonies want to be communism as a result of refused independence. Or they try and stay away from communism in order to be independent. How would decolonization look? Would North Japan in their grip mean the Soviets fall sooner or later? How would this affect the world? What would today's world look like? What you think?
