    The First and Second Wars Between the States


    1861-1862: An Independent South


    Lee's orders were, in the alternate timeline, recovered by trailing Confederate troops. The resulting Confederate advance caught McClellan and the U.S. by surprise. Instead of fighting at Antietam, General Lee forced McClellan into battle on the banks of the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania and destroyed the Army of the Potomac in the Battle of Camp Hill on October 1, 1862.
    After the decisive Confederate victory, Lee and the ANV went on to occupy Philadelphia. As a direct result, the Confederate States of America earned diplomatic recognition from Great Britain and France. Both European nations then forced mediation on the United States; this action resulted in independence for the Confederate States. After less than two years, the War of Secession had ended.
    While considering the mediation offer, Abraham Lincoln mentioned to British ambassador Richard B. P. Lyons that he had in his desk drawer a proclamation that would have freed slaves in the rebellious Confederacy. Lincoln had discussed the proclamation's viability with his cabinet, but after the U.S. defeat at Camp Hill, he decided against issuing it. He was warned by Lyons that if the proclamation were issued, he would have been perceieved as acting in desperation, since the U.S. was about to officially admit defeat.

    1862-1881: American Changes

    Confederate general Braxton Bragg completed the conquest of Kentucky shortly after the conclusion of Camp Hill. Sometime after the war ended, Kentucky became the twelfth state to enter the Confederacy.
    The pro-Confederate Five Civilized Tribes of the Indian Territory were given territory of their own in the C.S. (later to become the State of Sequoyah). The Caribbean island of Cuba was later purchased by the Confederate States from Spain sometime in the 1870s (exact date unknown).
    Lincoln and his vice president Hannibal Hamlin were defeated in the 1864 elections, and another Republican president would not be elected until 1880, when James G. Blaine defeated incumbent Democrat Samuel J. Tilden. Blaine was a hard-liner who precipitated another war against the Confederate States over the latter nation's purchase of the Mexican provinces Sonora and Chihuahua.

    1881-1882: The Second War Between the States

    Because of spectacular leadership from Confederate general Thomas Jackson against his counterpart William Rosecrans, and the assistance of Great Britain and France, the United States was once again defeated. The U.S. officially surrendered on April 22, 1882, ending the Second Mexican War. Humiliating terms of surrender were placed on the United States, including the annexation of most of northern Maine to Canada.
    Both American nations experienced major changes after the war. In the United States, many Republicans were voted out of Congress in the 1882 elections. Stung with the loss in the Second Mexican War, Blaine was ousted as president two years later. The elections of 1882 and 1884 began Democratic control over Congress and the White House, which would last 36 years.
    In return for British and French assistance, Confederate President James Longstreet was obliged to propose the nominal manumission of the country's slaves, which proceeded throughout the 1880s.
    The defeated United States, realizing it needed powerful allies to counter the Confederate alliances with Britain and France, began an alliance with the German Empire and adopted many of its military and economic practices.
    One of the few victories for the United States in the war, a battle in the Montana Territory against the British, produced two American heroes who would be rivals for forty years: Brigadier General George Armstrong Custer and Theodore Roosevelt, colonel of the Unauthorized Regiment.
    Witnessing the collapse of the Republican Party, former President Abraham Lincoln, now an orator, allied with American socialists and led left wing Republicans into this fledgling party. The Republicans soon began a long descent into general obscurity, never again (as of 1941) winning the presidency.

    1882-1914: The Road to War

    For the next thirty years, the Democratic Party dominated the politics of the United States. The Socialists eventually displaced the Republicans as the opposition party, but were nothing more than a minority in Congress. As the Socialists were becoming a left-wing, liberal party, the Democrats turned to a more conservative ideology. As their following became smaller, the Republican Party devolved into a small regional party of the Midwest.
    The United States economy and military were reformed along Prussian lines: peacetime conscription and a naval buildup began, and resources such as coal, kerosene, and food products became subject to rationing. Large trusts held untrammeled power over the economy, with government encouragement, and labor rights were largely ignored. The U.S. eventually began a formal alliance with the German Empire and joined the Quadruple Alliance, which also included Austria-Hungary and Italy.
    A racial caste system similar to apartheid had been instituted in the C.S., where Negroes were defined as "residents" rather than citizens, and were prohibited from voting or even moving freely about the country without a passbook. Under the weight of this oppression, the socialist theories of Karl Marx had taken hold among southern Negroes. Meanwhile, white politics were dominated by the Whigs, a conservative, mostly upper-class party. They were opposed, with limited success, by the Radical Liberals, a small opposition party that was popular in the fringes of the Confederacy, such as in Louisiana, Sequoyah (our timeline's state of Oklahoma), Sonora, Chihuahua, and the state of Cuba.
    Canada was largely unchanged from our history, except for the Anglo-Quebecois rivalry being overshadowed by the fear of the United States, and universal conscription for the armed forces.
    Overseas, little seems changed from our timeline, except that Japan, in addition to holding Chosun and Formosa (Korea and Taiwan respectively), had also seized the Philippines and Guam from Spain during the Hispano-Japanese War (c. 1905). There was no Russo-Japanese War. Alaska was - for financial reasons - never bought by the United States, and remained a Russian colony.
    Relations between the two American nations had been tense since the Second Mexican War of 1881-82. The Confederates joined their traditional allies Great Britain and France alongside the Russian Empire in the Quadruple Entente. Incidents such as border raids and the Anglo-Confederate proposal for a Nicaragua Canal nearly brought the two alliances to war many times. But when the spark for war comes, it is not in North America, but in Europe: the distant Austro-Hungarian Empire.

    The Great War

    1914: Declaration and Invasion


    The Empire's Crown Prince Franz Ferdinand and his wife were killed by a terrorist bomb while touring the town of Sarajevo in June 1914. The Austrian government quickly learned that a Serb group was responsible, and accused the government of nearby Serbia of colluding with the terrorists. Tsar Nicholas II of Russia backed Serbia, while Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany backed Austria-Hungary. The major powers of each system mobilized their militaries, effectively signifying their intent to go to war. In August 1914, the Great War began, initially pitting Great Britain, France, and Russia against Germany and Austria-Hungary.
    Across the Atlantic, Democratic President Theodore Roosevelt ordered the U.S. military to mobilize in late July, following Germany's lead. In response, Confederate President Woodrow Wilson ordered the C.S. military to do the same, and fighting soon broke out on their common border and the high seas.
    The United States officially brought the war to North America when Roosevelt declared war on the Confederate States in early August 1914. Confederate President Wilson responded in kind, although he had hoped to avoid a war. Wilson's speech, given in a tightly-packed public square of Richmond, Virginia decorated with statues of southern war heroes George Washington and Albert Sidney Johnston, became particularly famous.
    Hoping to emulate General Lee, the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia launched a massive invasion of Maryland and Pennsylvania in August, targeting the northern de facto capital of Philadelphia. The ANV quickly overran the de jure capital of Washington, D.C. and pushed on through Maryland.
    The U.S. Army took a different approach, and ordered the First Army under Lieutenant General George Custer and the Second Army under Major General John Pershing to cross the Ohio River and invade Kentucky. Although Confederate resistance was high, especially from river gunboats modeled after the original USS Monitor, the U.S. succeeded in establishing a bridgehead on the southern bank.
    A separate U.S. invasion of Sonora, intended to capture the Confederacy's sole Pacific port of Guaymas, soon bogged down. A young army captain named Irving Morrell was wounded in this venture, and spent much of the next six months in Tucson, New Mexico recuperating.
    The U.S. also launched attacks on the British commonwealth of Canada, specifically in Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec. Perhaps the most successful maneuver during these early stages of war was the U.S. Navy's capture of the British base at Pearl Harbor in the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii) in a surprise attack.

    1915: Stalemate and Rebellion

    Both American offensives soon stalled, however; the U.S. armies found it difficult to push south, and the ANV was slowed by the winter of 1914-15. The Confederate invasion of Pennsylvania soon ground to a halt at the Susquehanna River; the ANV was only 50 miles from Philadelphia. From that high-water mark, U.S. forces slowly started to push the ANV back into Maryland.
    Although the U.S. forces easily conquered the southern bank of the St. Lawrence River, crossing it proved another matter. The geography of the Niagara Peninsula soon bottlenecked the invading army. Though Winnipeg, Manitoba, a major rail junction, lay relatively close to the U.S. border, the War Department allocated too few troops to capture it.
    Trench warfare became ubiquitous as each side dug in for protection from machine-gun fire. Troops huddled in these trenches as heavy artillery in their rear pounded the enemy lines night and day. They dreaded the order "Over the top!" which meant they would have to leave the safety of their lines to charge into No Man's Land, in the hope of capturing the enemy trenches on the other side. Far from the quick, glorious conquest each side had imagined, the Great War became a long, bloody stalemate.
    Early in 1915, another front was opened when the Utah Mormons seceded from the United States and declared themselves the independent nation of Deseret. Mormon relations with the rest of the country had been hostile since the Utah War of the 1850s and the brief uprising during the Second Mexican War, and they believed that the distracted U.S. government would be unable to subdue them. They were wrong; Utah sat on one of the major transcontinental rail lines, and President Roosevelt stated the U.S. would not tolerate unlawful rebellion. The Mormon rebellion raged until mid-1916, when it was finally crushed and Salt Lake City captured. Utah was then placed under military rule by Roosevelt, under which it would remain until the 1930s.
    In the autumn of 1915, with the armies of the Confederacy locked in mortal combat with those of the United States along the border regions, the CSA's blacks rose up in revolt. Bitter over their treatment by the whites, and fueled by a rhetoric of Marxism and the teachings of Abraham Lincoln, the blacks declared Red revolution in several areas across the CSA and established "socialist republics," while massacring whites and seeking justice against their former white masters; most trials were shams, however, and the executions brutal. These rebellions were gradually crushed by 1916, although white justice mellowed out a bit as thoughts were preoccupied with winning the war. Ironically, the Red revolt actually made white people start to believe in the military potential of blacks.

    1916: Slaughter

    Taking advantage of the Confederacy's plight, the U.S. First Army finished slogging through western Kentucky and marched into western Tennessee, while the C.S. Army of Northern Virginia was pushed south toward Washington. In mid-spring of 1916, a new armored technical advance called the "barrel" (referred to as a tank by the British) was introduced to combat for the first time by US forces operating in the Roanoke Valley.
    In this case, as in our time line, the name of the vehicle comes from the cover name used. In Britain, those assembling the vehicle were told they were mobile water tanks; in this time line, they were coded 'barrel,' though there was some indication something called a 'barrel' was coming. Private Reginald Bartlett, escaping with a Confederate naval officer, heard U.S. soldiers singing a song, "Roll Out the Barrel." (not related to our timeline's Czech polka "Rosalinda," which became popular in 1938 and was given the English-langauge lyrics "Roll Out the Barrel.")
    While in Tennessee, Lieutenant General Custer transformed his tactics for cavalry into a doctrine for the new barrels, but the War Department would hear none of it. When Custer's summer offensive began, tens of thousands of U.S. soldiers were lost attacking Confederate lines, and the new barrels, deployed singly in an infantry support role rather than massed as an armored fist, broke down in the hilly terrain to little effect.
    The lack of British troops in Canada meant that the USA, while initially held back by Canadians, would slowly advance toward their triple objectives of Quebec City, Toronto, and Winnipeg. Largely thanks to the efforts of Irving Morrell, U.S. forces pushed up to Banff in the Canadian Rockies and cut the Pacific coast off from the rest of the country.
    At sea, the great Battle of the Three Navies between the USA on one side, and the United Kingdom and Japan on the other, prevented the Entente from recapturing the Sandwich Islands. With the Central Pacific in U.S. hands, a U.S. Navy flotilla made its way south toward the Cape of South America and the Atlantic on the other side, with the intent of cutting off Argentine grain and beef shipments to Great Britain.
    On the Maryland front, the state was cleared of Confederate soldiers, save for those holding Washington, the nominal U.S. capital. In Tennessee that autumn, more attacks toward Nashville gained the USA nothing but a possible Democratic loss at the polls, with the possiblity that a Socialist President would seek peace with the CSA and renounce all the bloody gains. Except for a local attack on the Roanoke Front that pushed the USA out of western Virginia, the Confederates stayed on the defensive that autumn and attempted to drain the USA dry, hoping to sicken the U.S. population of war.
    Nevertheless, for all the wishes of the Socialist Party and the Confederates, Theodore Roosevelt was easily re-elected over Socialist Eugene V. Debs in the November election. In Richmond, however, the hopes of new President Gabriel Semmes (elected in 1915) and his Cabinet were dashed. The USA had another four years to crush the CSA, and the Confederates were running out of white men to fight. A bill, proposed by Semmes, was passed authorizing the training and arming of Negro troops who would serve in the lines, with civil rights (excepting interracial marriage) given after the war, including citizenship in the CSA.
    In Europe, the war seemed little changed from our timeline, with the exception of Verdun's capture by the Germans, and an apparently heavier use of North African infantry by the French Army. In addition, Italy stayed neutral in the conflict.

    1917: Breakthroughs


    Lieutenant General Custer secretly developed a scheme to quickly end the war in the USA's favor, using a massed-barrel (tank) formation forbidden by the War Department. Disguising his true intentions to all but his adjutant, Major Abner Dowling, and Lieutenant Colonel Irving Morrell, and lying to President Roosevelt, Custer launched his Barrel Roll Offensive on Remembrance Day - April 22, 1917 - and quickly broke through the Confederate trench lines north of the Tennessee capital of Nashville.
    The Southerners withdrew to a line centered on Nashville, where Custer hit them again three weeks later by outflanking the city using a plan concocted by Morrell. Nashville soon fell, despite the best efforts of the newly formed C.S. colored regiments to stave off Custer's barrels, and the state capitol became First Army headquarters.
    From Nashville, in July, Custer attacked the C.S. lines in the direction of Murfreesboro. Near Nolensville the U.S. received a Confederate request for a local armistice. President Roosevelt assented, and peace on the North American front came to Tennessee a week before the rest of the U.S.-C.S. frontline.
    At the same time, in Europe, mutinies in the French Army proved serious enough to lead to France's exit from the war. Russia collapsed into revolution and anarchy, leaving only the Confederate States and Great Britain to fight against the United States, Germany, and Austria-Hungary.
    On the same day the Barrel Roll Offensive began in Tennessee, the U.S. Army in northern Virginia attacked southward toward Manassas at the same time that U.S. troops entered occupied Washington DC. The de jure U.S. capital was recaptured after several days of intense street fighting, which leveled the city and its famous landmarks (such as the Washington Monument and the White House).
    In northern Virginia, several U.S. attacks forced the C.S. Army of Northern Virginia to retreat south. In battles at Round Hill, Centreville, and Bull Run creek, rear-guard actions led by a few battered batteries of the First Richmond Howitzers prevented the complete destruction of the latest incarnation of Robert E. Lee's fabled army. However, it was obvious the war was on the verge of being lost; it was a notion that did not bode well with several Confederate soldiers, who reckoned the war was won only months before.
    In Canada, Custer's barrel methods were used to break through the Anglo-Canadian lines south of Winnipeg, Manitoba, and the provincial capital was taken in late May. The same strategy was used by U.S. forces battling their way into Toronto, Ontario, the fall of which precipitated a British Empire request for a cease-fire with the USA on all land fronts. The armistice was granted in early June, and, with U.S.-German naval operations (with help from Brazil) cutting off Great Britain from its Argentine and Australasian food suppliers, the United Kingdom sued for peace later that summer; the U.K. was the last opponent of the Quadruple Alliance that was still in the war.
    The Confederate States of America started sending peace feelers to Philadelphia as early as the fall of Nashville, but Theodore Roosevelt refused to grant a cease-fire until certain the CSA was severely hammered elsewhere. The last hammers on the Confederate Army came in late July, when fighting reached the town of Fredericksburg, Virginia, which was only fifty miles from the Confederate States capital. With a cease-fire already in effect in Tennessee, Sequoyah overrun, and fighting out west in Texas and Arkansas sputtering down, the CSA agreed to a general armistice on land and at sea. For the first time since August 1914, the guns fell silent in North America.
    At sea, however, the submarine CSS Bonefish, led by Confederate Navy man Roger Kimball, carried out a sneak attack on the USS Ericsson even though he was fully aware of the war's end. For a few years after the war, both the U.S. and C.S. believed that the ship's destruction was a work of the Royal Navy, as the war between the USA and the British Empire at sea had not yet ended.

    The American Empire Period

    1918: Old Animosities Rekindled


    The United States celebrated hard during 1918 as it reveled in the euphoria of having finally won revenge on the Confederate States, with parades and parties lasting well into the autumn. President Roosevelt and General Custer (General being his true rank now, as Roosevelt promoted the aging officer in Nashville as the war was ending) rode together in the Philadelphia Remembrance Day Parade, which was the biggest one to date. The tradition of showing the national flag upside-down to show distress was put aside to show that the USA had reversed the outcomes of both 1862 and 1882.
    However, as the ramifications of war were beginning to be set, the U.S. and C.S. navies still had to deploy minesweepers to clear their harbors, which kept them busy through to the late 1930s and early 1940s.
    Not everyone in the victorious United States celebrated hard, however. Returning veterans found scabs working for cheaper wages in the factories and mines they had worked at before the call to arms during the war. More veterans found themselves being put down by capitalists and factory owners, and went on strike in industrial centers like Pittsburgh and Toledo. The owners sicced the Pinkertons and police on the strikers, but were repulsed by the war veterans, who had faced far worse challenges in the trenches. The country seemed to be on the verge of revolution, and the Socialist Party capitalized on gains among the lower classes. In November 1918, they captured the House of Representatives for the first time, upsetting Theodore Roosevelt's plans for domestic and foreign affairs.
    Citizens of the defeated and truncated Confederacy were hardly in a mood to celebrate. President Roosevelt had forced humiliating terms upon them in return for peace, and President Semmes had no choice but to agree to it. Kentucky had already been lost to the United States, having rejoined the Union in 1916. So was Sequoyah (which was placed under occupation), and western Texas, which the USA admitted into the Union in 1917 as the state of Houston, with its capital at Lubbock. Pieces of Arkansas, Sonora, and Virginia held by US troops at the armistice were also annexed into Missouri, New Mexico (a state that comprises our New Mexico and Arizona), and West Virginia respectively.
    In addition, the C.S. Army and Navy were severely curtailed, and massive reparations had to be made to Philadelphia. These terms angered Confederates, but they had no choice. It was Roosevelt's peace or the war renewed, and they were in no condition to fight. Because of the payments being sent North, the Confederate dollar spiraled out of control, as hyperinflation ruined the CSA economy.
    In reaction, hatred against the USA went up among the white population, and several reactionary political parties sprouted up across the Confederate States. One of these fringe groups was the Freedom Party, founded by Anthony Dresser in Richmond, Virginia, sometime after the end of the Great War. (Note: in our history, the original founder of the then-fringe German Nazi Party - later ousted by Hitler - was named Anton Drexler. Obviously, the odds against a person filling an equivalent role on another continent in another timeline having such a similar name are astronomical; Turtledove was evidently dropping a subtle hint to readers familiar with modern German history).
    As for the British Empire, President Roosevelt forced London to recognize the Republic of Quebec (established in April 1917 as the war in Canada was drawing to a close) and the Republic of Ireland (including all of Ulster). Britain was also forced to relinquish claims to the Bahamas, Bermuda, the Sandwich Islands, and all of the Dominion of Canada.
    In Canada, the Dominion government was declared an illegal assembly. The U.S. Army set up its occupation headquarters in Winnipeg and turned each province into a military district. Occupied Canada was declared to be US territory as part of the new American Empire, "stretching from the Gulf of California to the Arctic Ocean." In 1919, General George Custer requested and was granted the post of governor-general of Occupied Canada in retribution for what he perceived to be a Canadian "murder" of his brother Tom in the fighting of 1881.

    1919-1924: American Blood & Iron

    The Freedom Party was doing well for itself in Richmond. Its chief speaker - a vengeful, spiteful, and bitter ex-sergeant named Jake Featherston - harangued crowds at public meetings and squares on how the Confederacy had been "stabbed in the back" by the Whig Party, the War Department, and, most of all, the black minority, who had risen up in Red rebellion in 1915. Featherston's angry mannerisms connected him and his Party to the masses, and soon the Freedom Party became the white man's proto-version of the Socialists that were popular with Confederate blacks and Northerners in the USA. Everyone who knew better saw Featherston as the Party's true leader, and the "Sarge" won the Party's leadership in a power struggle against Dresser in mid-1919. Once he was comfortably settled in his new office, Featherston reorganized the Freedom Party into a political party revolving around his goals and ambitions, and white-shirted "stalwarts" were soon elected into the Confederate Congress, while their assault squads took on Featherston's enemies.
    The victorious United States, with its American Empire, ignored political events occurring in the CSA. Most members of Congress paid no attention to the rise of the Freedom Party, save for Flora Hamburger, a worried Socialist Representative from New York City. Despite her calls for action, her party took no notice, instead focusing on voting President Roosevelt out of office in 1920. The Socialists succeeded, when their candidate Upton Sinclair defeated Roosevelt in the election that November - the first time since the election of 1880 that a Democrat lost a presidential race. Sinclair was inaugurated president of the United States on March 4, 1921 to much rejoicing from the Socialist party.
    Later in 1921, Jake Featherston ran for office against Wade Hampton V of the Whigs and Ainsworth Layne of the Radical Liberals. Though he polled second over Layne, Featherston lost by a narrow margin to Hampton, but resolved to fight on. In 1923, Grady Calkins, a deranged Freedom Party stalwart, assassinated the new president at a Birmingham, Alabama rally. The Freedom Party immediately began to lose support, which hurt it a lot in the elections of 1923 and 1925. Another factor that limited the Freedom Party's chances for success was President Sinclair's lifting of the war reparations (requested by new president Burton Mitchel), which took meat out of the Freedom Party's platform. Featherston and his most ardent stalwarts had nothing to look forward to for the next several years.
    In Canada, Governor-General Custer ruled the former dominion with an iron-felt glove, surviving several assassination attempts by Manitoban farmer Arthur McGregor. Custer killed McGregor in the farmer's final attempt as he was parading through McGregor's town of Rosenfeld, Manitoba. At that point, the war hero was retiring, having been forced out by the new Socialist administration. Sinclair wanted to shelve the USA's militarist-feel and go back to the days of peace, hoping that by treating its neighbors with respect there would never be another war. Sinclair was popular enough to win re-election in 1924 - the same year the Freedom Party started involving its stalwarts in the Mexican Civil War, an action the USA did nothing to stop.

    1925-1933: Freedom on the Brink of Power

    Radio had just been discovered, and was now starting to reach the people. Jake Featherston was the first politician to realize its potential, and soon people sitting in their homes could hear his raspy, thundery voice shouting from their radio sets, telling them the "truth" about the Yankees, Whigs, and blacks. Even with this broadened appeal to the masses, the Freedom Party's hopes ebbed further with Featherston's defeat at the polls in 1927 against incumbent Burton Mitchel III. The Confederate people were just starting to enjoy the fruits of peace and prosperity, and the war and black uprisings were the mere past, despite Featherston and his stalwarts doing their utmost to remind them. It seemed nothing could change their fortunes. Then, beginning in early 1929, the world's stock markets crashed.
    In the CSA, Burton Mitchel III was blamed. In the USA, which had come out of the 1920s with a booming economy and a Canadian revolt having been crushed in 1925, newly elected President Hosea Blackford took the heat. Millions lost their jobs, and in Utah, occupied since 1916, Mormon fanatics gunned down Governor-General John Pershing. When Japan and the USA went to war in 1932 after Japan was caught smuggling weapons to Canada by the USS Remembrance, and Japanese bombers attacked Los Angeles, Blackford was easily turned out of office by the Democratic ticket of Calvin Coolidge and Herbert Hoover. On January 5, 1933, Coolidge died before he could take office. Hoover assumed the presidency, under which he practiced Coolidge's campaign policy of government non-intervention in the economy.
    Things were happening in the CSA as well. Whole cities echoed to the boot-steps of marching stalwart formations such as the Freedom Party, whose ranks were flowing once more with the angry and the wrathful, prepared for Election Day 1933. Jake Featherston attacked the Mitchel Administration with the most vulgar venom and hate, blaming Mitchel for the crash, and condemning his innefectual response to the floods that devastated the Mississippi River valley in 1927. Millions of Confederates lapped it up and shouted for more, which he had. When Featherston took the oath of office on March 4, 1934, the world held its breath: "Freedom" was on the march.
    In Europe, the storm clouds were also beginning to gather. The final vestiges of the Bolshevik revolution were crushed by 1927; among the last holdouts was the Volga town of Tsaritsyn under the "Man of Steel" (Joseph Stalin) and his second in command "The Hammer" (Vyacheslav Molotov). Under Tsar Michael, Russia remained a primarily agricultural, backward country. Frequent anti-Semitic pogroms and foreign loans managed to deflect further restlessness, but the latter contributed to the Business Collapse in 1929 when Austria-Hungary demanded the repayment of a loan that Russia was unable to fulfill.
    Austria-Hungary itself remained a united empire, but only the Austrians and Hungarians felt any loyalty to the Habsburg monarchs. In fact, the multi-ethnic federation seems to have been held together only by German aid and bayonets. The Ottoman Empire also appears to be in the same boat, undertaking the ethnic cleansing of its Armenian population. Despite strong censure from the United States, and more lukewarm protests from Berlin, the Turks continued the genocide until the Ottoman Empire had hardly any surviving Armenians.
    Kaiser Wilhelm II ruled a strong Germany, and his troops continued to occupy Belgium, the Ukraine, and the puppet Kingdom of Poland, but post-war relations with the U.S. has soured to the point that many people on both sides of the Atlantic believed that Germany and the United States would someday be engaged in a full-fledged war. The Business Collapse put an end to that, however, and the old enemies reasserted themselves once more.
    After the Collapse, France found itself under Action Française and its king Charles XI, who began making noises about the return of Alsace-Lorraine to French rule. In Britain, the Silver Shirts under Oswald Mosley held similar views, and supported Action Française, though they never became more than a minority in Parliament. Italy never came under Mussolini's rule; However in 1933 it sign a military accord with Berlin after the previous King was killed and King Umbero I was declared Emperor of Italy.
    Japan did not remain quiet either. Prior to the Pacific War with the United States, Japan negotiated with both France and Holland to acquire Indochina and the East Indies respectively. Though Great Britain feared that Hong Kong, Malaya, and Singapore would also be annexed this way, Japan showed no interest in doing so. Japan also gained much influence in China during this period, and seems to have established a puppet state of Manchukuo as well.

    1934-1941: The Victorious Opposition

    The Depression lingered on in the USA and Occupied Canada through 1934 and 1935, with millions of men out of work and productivity down. President Hoover's only highlight during this time was ending the war with Japan, but many people still questioned why it had been fought in the first place. In Congress, Flora Hamburger Blackford questioned why Hoover and the Democrats were allowing the Confederate States to enlarge its army in violation of the peace treaty. At the same time, Congress had to deal with several Freedom Party congressmen from the former Confederate states of Kentucky and Houston (formerly part of Texas), who disrupted Congressional sessions with calls for a plebiscite in their home states. When Socialist Al Smith was elected over Hoover in 1936, the Freedom Party's shouts started to get heeded.
    The Freedom Party in the Confederate States had begun to turn the government into a one-party rule, with the Confederate Congress passing laws proposed by President Jake Featherston. He faced no opposition from the Confederate Supreme Court because he maneuvered the high court into making its position vulnerable, whereupon he merely extended executive power and abolished the judicial branch. Forced elections in 1935 and 1937 solidified and confirmed Freedom control of the House and Senate, with state legislatures and governorships captured as well. The Army was purged in 1936, and conscription renewed in 1938. The troublesome Vice President Willy Knight was removed from office after his attempt on Featherston's life later that year, and was soon imprisoned. The police was slowly padded with stalwarts, and soon, with a nod from the national administration and Attorney General Ferdinand Koenig, the states were installing correctional camps for "rioteous" and "unruly" Whigs and Radical Liberals.
    Radical Liberal Louisiana was toppled by Freedom stalwarts, with Governor Huey Long's regime replaced, through his assassination in 1938, by an administration more agreeable with Featherston's interests. With black rebellion flare-ups popping up all over the CSA, Featherston had begun looking for quiet and suitable places to exact revenge for wrongs, real or (mostly) imagined, that the blacks had done. Louisiana was the perfect place to begin "reducing population."
    In late 1940, Al Smith finally agreed to hear Jake Featherston's demands for the former Confederate states of Houston, Kentucky, and Sequoyah. In the resulting plebiscites of January 7, 1941, Kentucky and west Texas (Houston) voted to return to the CSA. Featherston promised not to remilitarize them, or to ask for Sequoyah (which had voted pro-USA) or other former CSA territory such as the annexed areas of Virginia, Arkansas, and Sonora. Within weeks, Featherston broke his promise and planted his modernized and expanded Confederate Army on the Ohio River, convincing Smith that the time to face Featherston down had finally come.
    Tensions rose in Europe when Germany's longtime ruler died. The new Kaiser Friedrich Wilhelm V refused to return the former French territory of Alsace-Lorraine that France's ruling party had demanded.

    Rules

    Orders

    Orders in a list please. Stories and innovative solutions in orders also are welcome and encouraged. If you like something to be done but do not wish to share it with the rest of the players mark it secret . Orders in the thread will not be accepted unless my PM box is full . However you may post them for information. Diplomacy with NPCs or PCs can be done in the thread. I am also asking that all players KEEP ORDERS TO A 1 PM MINIMUM, and I WILL ONLY ACCEPT THE FIRST SET OF ORDERS. NO CHANGES ONCE ORDERS ARE PM'd to me. NO ADDITIONS EITHER. The reason behid this is that your generals are often out of contact of your direct command and thus should be only able to receive one set of orders. Give his capability he should also be able to adapt those orders to the fluid situation around him. Let him take care of the tactical side of things, you take care of the strategic side.

    Stories

    Stories are not necessary, but very encouraged. Writers will get an economy bonus and if their story is very good – some positive random events. This is also crucial to your national confidence as it is soley dependent on in game events and stories help you in all sorts of ways.

    STATS RULES

    Economy:


    Economy levels still play the vital role. However, the amount of economy points that you have differs from level to level (if you get a negative amount of them, I will decrease a random stat per negative point); it is also influenced by random events and by economic centers (cities that are either trade centers, industrial centers or capitals of agriculturally-rich provinces); each of the latter provides one eco. point per turn to whoever holds it at the time (i.e. if it is on occupied territory, the occupier receives the eco. point). To grow economy (i.e. to advance from one level to another), you have to a) not spend your eco. points, apart from those received from eco. centers, on anything else that turn and b) to point out what exactly are you going to do to grow it (note that eco. growth might not always be succesful, depending on what you do and how things fold out).

    Eco. points could (and should) be spent on growing military, miscellanous stats (see below), logistical support for the military and on continuing projects. Speaking of the latter, you could also invest a whole eco. level into a project to speed it up by two turns.

    Eco. points cannot be banked.

    Eco. levels still could be "sacrificed", i.e. converted into 6 eco. points each. Only two eco. levels could be sacrificed per turn.

    Creation of economic centers also requires the investment of at least one eco. point into some specific development programs, most of the times anyway.

    Depression (-2)-Bankrupt (-1)-Recession (-1)-Very Poor (0)-Poor (0)-Not Bad (+1)-Normal (+1)-Good Enough (+2)-Growing (+2)-Rich (+3)-Very Rich (+3)-Richer (+4)-Richest (+4)-Economic Powerhouse (+5)-Monopoly (+6) (after Monopoly, you get Monopoly+x (+6+x), where x is the amount of economy levels beyond Monopoly)

    Size

    As proposed by Disenfrancised, though somewhat altered by das. The larger your country is, the more money you will have to spend to grow any particular stat. You could invest money into stat growth over time if your country is large enough; in that case, the stat will still increase, but only in some, probably central, parts of the country.

    Small (1)-Medium (2)-Above Medium (3)-Large (4)-Huge (5)-Gargantuan (6)-Half the World (7)

    Futhermore size will place limits on production and armaments.

    [/b]Military[/b]

    The military will consist of 3 parts namely Army, Navy and the Airforce. With time Space Forces may also be added to the list. The military is measured in numbers of types of forces, for example: 15000 of mobile infantry or 30 Bomber Squadrons.

    Costs for Specific Generic Units: (For new Unit IDEAS PM me I will tell you development cost. They then become your unit only for a while though you can give it to allies, I will determine how long until everyone has it however. Nuclear weapons are diffrent in regards to this.)

    Per an economy point
    Army


    Conscript Infantry = Production X 1,000
    Normal Infantry = Production X 500
    Tanks = Production X 10
    Mechanised Infantry = Production X 100
    AA = Production X 5
    AT = Production x 5

    Navy

    Battleships = Production X 0.1
    Cruisers = Production X 0.2
    Destroyers = Production X 0.5
    Carriers = Production X 0.01
    Submarines = Production X 1

    Air Force

    Fighters = Production X 10
    Bombers = Production X 2
    Interceptors = Production X 5
    Dive Bombers = Production X 5

    Missiles and Strategic Weapons

    Mustared Gas Shells = Production X 1,000
    Nerve Gas Shells = Production x 100

    NB: Please use equivalents for these units later on.

    Nuclear Weapons

    Nuclear Weapon research will become available through a pm from a scientist from your nation. Rumours may appear however there will be no stat line and it is up to your budgets and whatever else to attain this once your scientists can make it known to this.

    Weaponry Description

    There will be a post left for descriptions of different non-generic country specific military systems in particular nuclear weapons (range, speed and power). This list will contain all weapon systems that are known to most of the world intelligences, so do not rely on it completely. It is done for the (main) purpose of defining the strength of nuclear weapons. When you design a new weapon it would be great if you write a small description on what the weapon is or maybe provide a link to a short article. Keep in mind I reserve the right to alter theses as I see fit.

    Military Standard

    This how your nation fairs compared to others in military standards. Those nations with lower ratings will have lower standards of equipment and or/training.

    Rabble (1)
    Horde (2)
    Below Normal (3)
    Normal (4)
    Above Normal (5)
    Veteran (6)
    Elite (7)

    To upgrade Military Standard it will take the equivalent ep for your country size.

    Mobilization:

    Once your country officially enters a war you can announce a mobilization. This will cause a temporary rise in war production and will give you a large number of recruits. (conscripts begin forming on their own accord and are more determined on your nation's confidence then anything else) Needles to say they are badly trained, but are large in numbers. Mobilization means that your focus shifts to the war only, thus nothing can be done with the economy in the turn you announce mobilization.

    Diplomacy

    Alliances

    Alliances are encouraged. As this nes already has pre-existing alliances beware the consquences of changing sides (as your people may or may not be happy with you.) Yes THERE ARE SOME NATIONS whose governments are on the opposite side to what their people want however.

    National Confidence:

    Is how confident your country is. The concept of confidence also includes other things like moral, government approval rating, culture and stability itself. There are 7 levels:

    1. Revolutionary
    2. Dangerous
    3. Unstable
    4. Normal
    5. Above Normal
    6. High
    7. Amazing Stability

    Confience will grow if you write good/long stories.

    Government:

    Each nation has a government that is already pre-existing. You must play to the charcter of this government. Not being in the character of the government could and will have disastrous results on your confidence, could result in a leagal faux pas with an elected assembly or even could result in a coup or revolution to remove the derranged leader. You will be given warnings in the updates and yes like always I will always err on the harsh side of things.


    Productivity:

    Productivity is your country’s industries. Will determine how much is produced in the economy. If you increase your navy your productivity will determine by how much. Same works for any other production. However nations with more shipyards will get more ships than countries with few ports.
    Productivity can be increased by spending economy on it or by projects. One economy ep increases productivity by 10 production units Production Units are represented by a number.

    Literacy

    Literacy is the education of the general population in your country. Educated population is unlikely to start rebellions, unless under dire circumstances, and will sometimes make protests on wars and affect your economy in a positive way. And educated population will give birth to great scientists that can push your technology further to the future (NUKES!!!) Education directly affects the progress of technological advances and projects is in the country.
    Uneducated population will be quicker to listen and accept enemy propaganda, will slow down your technological advances, is likely to revolt or break away into smaller states. Literacy is measured in numbers. Literacy also affects the performance of your military.

    Projects:

    These can be research projects or something that may benefit you but not increase your military or economy. I will heavily scrutinise these and my decision once again is final.

    Allied Military and Weaponry:

    Due to the fact that there are alliances some troops are on foreign territory. For example in Austria-Hungary you have a number of troops. Some are German, some are Austrian. German player can control his troops, but it is generally a good idea to consult the nation your troops are in.
    As soon as new guns are developed a whole army gets them. So for example if Russian develop new K-47 model (52 mm) all Russian troops from Mongolia to Germany get those weapons.

    Colonies and Puppet Regimes

    Colonies and puppet regimes will have three stats. How many troops are in the colony, How much ep is generated or lost to the colony and the confidence of the colony in the mother country's leadership. These will be tacked on the end of the mother country's stats so it will be easier for the nation's controlling it to determine.

    Dominions (aka the goddamn limey's rule!)

    Are nations that are really independent although foreign policy can be dictated to them. As it stands the only dominons are Australia, South Africa and New Zealand all British dominions. They are stand alone nations have the full stats of a stand alone nation and can be run by a player. The exception is that a decleration of war from the mother country automatically counts a decleration of war from the dominion.

    Noteworthy Leaders:

    Each of the political leaders can rouse the populace with speeches, and do fantastic things. They can be used to sway a NPC organization/nation in diplomatic means. They can only be used for the use once per a turn.

    Each of the Military Leaders can lead segments of your military in your orders. If they do so they build a history with you (in particular if they are a made up one from my own imagination) then they will become a good man to have on side throughout the war.

    Turns

    Each turn will reflect a three month period designated by the season. It is then divided into monthly military sub-turns. The following seasons will follow the Northern Hemisphere connotations.

    Spring: March – May
    Summer: June – August
    Autumn/ Fall: September – November
    Winter: December – Feburary.

    Keep in mind in some areas of the globe the weather will remain hostile regardless of what season it is. Terrain, seasonal weather and the like will be taken into account for each particular front. Tactics are to reflect this if possible or beware.

    Oh and for those of you in the Southern Hempisphere remember that your seasons will be in reverse. When its Summer in the north its Winter in the south.

    The first turn of this nes is Spring 1941 (March – May). It is currently in the lead up of the war.

    Futhermore every two turns for those at war must send in military tactics for their armies at war so that that front may be updated. Each month thus there would be a mini-update for March, one for April and one for May. Purchases will only be made for the next season at the end of the season and remember troops from Singapore wont reach Britian in less than a month so take time factors into play.

    Stats would thus be less of a problem as I would only need to suntract losses during the week and add purchases in during the main weekly seasonal change update.

    Thank you

    Jake Featherston leads the Freedom Party to Victory!

    On Feburary 12th 1941 the US States of Kentucky and Houston were handed back to the Confederate States of America after an armistice that was conducted in November last year. Jake Featherston declared this a great day for Confederate honour, when he entered Kentucky later that day ahead of a motorcade. Within a month the supposed de-militarised areas were fortified by the Confederate Army under the pretense of Negro insurrection.

    Utah Govenor Young in Philadelphia on talks with President Smith

    After the recent flare up of violence from seperatist Mormons in Utah the Utah Govenor Heber Young travelled to Philadelphia on talks sought to ease tensions between the Union and the Church of Jesus Christ and the Latter Day Saints. In return for Mormon loyalty, Mormons are not ellgible for conscription.

    Candian Attacks Down

    In recent months the Canadian Underground has had less sucess than in recent years. Bombings were down to 12 last moth (down 200% from last month) to the death toll of 2 American soldiers and 45 Canadian Civilians. Whether this indicates that the United States Army is finally pacifying Canada or if the Canadians are regrouping for fresh assults remains to be the question.

    Britian publicly backs Ulster Seperatists, Insults Germany and Ireland

    Foreign Minister Oswald Mosley diplomatically attacked the Republic of Ireland in an address to the House of Commons today stating that 'the utmost support for the loyalist Ultser Regiments must be given to ensure that the Irish menace now unleashed by our enemies does not fatally stab Britain in the back when our defences must be up against the continent-bestrding Reich that enslaves entire populations.

    France gives ulimatum to Germany

    The French government gave Kaiser Fredrich Wilhelm IV an ultimatum late last week declaring that 'If the French territories of Alscace and Lorraine are not returned to Germany that the French nation will have no choice but to take what is rightfully theirs on the battlefield.' It remains to be seen what the response from Berlin will be.

    While I understand your point of view, colonies were an immense source of wealth for nations. However in times of war this income may change as events unfold. Do not think these figures are set in stone but merley reprsent their current values.

    We implore you. Return to us Aslace-Lorraine and territories you took from us in 1917. It is the only way we can be at peace. Refuse, and well, we'll ensure your children live in a hell hole.
