So, no alternate WW2? I mean, if he's selling Mosin-Nagants to the Germans, wouldn't that set the stage for a German Civil War between the KPD, the Nazis and Weimar loyalists?The idea that Trotsky charges the Red Army headlong into the guns of the rest of Europe because.. he's an inept ideologue? I don't really buy that, he managed the Red Army during the Civil War and will likely be aware of its strengths and weaknesses. I strongly doubt he will "invade Germany" outright with no grand strategic plan - far more likely is the smuggling of arms and equipment to various leftist organizations within the Weimar Republic. I do think he will array some sort of coalition of countries against him, but "the Red hordes pouring into Europe under Lev Bronstein" the first chance he gets is a tired alternate history trope.
