Plausible? Reliable? Biased?

Stumbled on this article while doing my thing searching for a game scenario. http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=24327 I agreed with the reasoning for it in all my armchair general wisdom, what you you guys think? plausible? Reliable? Biased? and this long, old interesting read...

Re: Help with alternate history 1936-1960

Hullo, I have been dead, BRAIN DEAD. Too many things going on at once and this project pretty much stalled. I've never read Turtledove, his alternate history books interests me some but I haven't made the leap. And if he really did ally Britain and Germany in his book I probably would not pick them ...

Re: Help with alternate history 1936-1960

I quite the idea that WWII didn't happen, if Germany was attacked by the Russian. It would make for an interesting and probably more volatile cold war.

Re: Help with alternate history 1936-1960

also alot of the Soviet population's support for the war was based on the German invasion and atrocities, so their willingness to commit more and more troops to unsuccessful war would be limited. and no lend/lease.. So the USSR may sue for peace after a couple of years.. Good point, yet another spa...

Re: Help with alternate history 1936-1960

I am not so sure.. remember Russia would way extended.. attacking an unbroken German army.. the result might be closer to WWI where the Russian attacked, got destroyed several times.. Germanay has interior lines, to rail troops east and west.. this is how it plays out in my head if Germany is in a ...

Re: Help with alternate history 1936-1960

I'm still mulling over 1941 Would the British navy be able to project power in the Med with Gibraltar in German hands.. There would be no friendly air cover in the western Med, and if Malta falls, non in the Central med.. Allowing the Axis to focus on the Eastern Med. So the Italian supply should be...

Re: Help with alternate history 1936-1960

I think I mis communicated that I didn't like your suggestion what I meant was I hate the fact that I like your idea about the war triggered by re-militarization of the Ruhr and it appear to throw off the time line so far. So what about France wants to get involved in SCW, suffers a couple of set b...

Re: Help with alternate history 1936-1960

thanks mriddle There would be no friendly air cover in the western Med, and if Malta falls, non in the Central med.. Allowing the Axis to focus on the Eastern Med. So the Italian supply should be safer than historical.. I've been too focused on helping Italian and German out in N. Africa and didn't ...

Re: Help with alternate history 1936-1960

1941 Italy Struggling to protect it's supply line to it's army in N. Africa and intercept British convoys. Lack of supplies led to Italy asking German for help in N.Africa. Germany sends the Afrika Korps to help Italy, rapid advance initially but lost moment tum as supplies ran low. Consolidates it'...

Re: Help with alternate history 1936-1960

Great reply there I confused myself with Poland :oops: I wonder how I could clean this up in my last post I forgot Poland was the reason war was declared on Germany, I wanted either Germany or Russian to invade but not both, they are helping the opposite sides of the SCW so they probably wouldn't co...

Re: Help with alternate history 1936-1960

How's this? 1936-1939 Most nations increases support to their side of the SCW, culminating in sending expeditionary forces mostly from Germany and Russia. 1940 Germany invades Denmark, Norway, Netherlands, Belgium and France. After France surrendered, large portion is sent to reinforce it's forces i...

Re: Help with alternate history 1936-1960

Germany would want to use Spain to get access to Gibraltar and close the Med, which would make any British conquest of Libya irrelevant, Very interesting. Once Germany overran France and could reinforce their force in Spain directly it'll give opportunity for earlier direct conflict with the Russia...

Help with alternate history 1936-1960

Hi, I’m trying to write an alternate history (for fun) between 1936-1960 that’s quite close to actual events but with a few twist on things and a complete redirection on others BUT I realized I’m not schizophrenic enough to role-play as multiple nations. Sooooo I’m hoping a few of you might want to ...

Nice to see the return of nose art but I wished it was for a different reason.
