Before the war, Germany had been much closer with China than Japan, and helped them become a much more formidable foe for Japan later on in OTL. Suppose Germany doubled down on this relationship in 1935, making it clear to the global community that China and Germany were allies. What is Japan's next move? Will they still try to attack China? Will they focus more on Pacific expansion? Would they still attack Pearl Harbor, and if not, when does the US join the war, if ever? Will China help attack the Soviet Union and/or French Indochina? What role does this play in China reunifying?
