Surprisingly neither a francophile, nor possessing red headwear. The origins of his username are summarisied by the oft repeated Winston Churchill quote of 'a riddle wrapped in an enigma.'
East Asia, South East Asia, Science Fiction, Rugby Union and Military matters.
La Rouge Beret has written three timelines, all focused on Southeast Asia:
A Tale of Vietnam : The Dragon and the Phoenix - With a POD being Dr Phan being chosen as Prime Minister for South Vietnam rather than Mr Diem. A slew of butterflies ensure to maintain a surviving South Vietnamese state. This TL will be rebooted to create a stronger non - communist political structure within Southern Vietnam. The rebooted version can be read here.
Twelve Minutes to Midnight - The starting point of divergence is a successful assassination of Prince Sihanouk resulting in a change of government in Cambodia and a slew of butterflies being unleashed across Indochina. Read it here.
Generally, La Rouge Beret's TL's focus on South East Asia during the 20th Century. This is because of an errant soil scooping accident in the same location, that resulted in red soil being added to his heart.
