June 22: Hitler has a moment of sanity and calls off the invasion of the USSR. Britain continues to be the main focus of Germany. Because of this, Britain begins to focus more and more of its efforts on just staying alive. The USSR holds on to the territories it has conquered.
Churchill orders the retreat of Britain's naval fleet to British waters. Britain's colonies are left to fend for themselves, causing anger against the crown. The US enters the war, same as in OTL. The US gives some aid to Australia, but India begins to experience some slight rumblings.
Nazi Germany steps up its production of ships and planes in preparation for Operation: Sealion. Germany also invades Switzerland, which is a success, but at a heavy cost. India begins to be pushed back by Japanese forces due to lack of British troops. Since the Japanese-occupied Dutch East Indies separates India from US forces, there is nothing the US can do. India's protests fall on deaf ears.
In Asia, India's supply road to China is cut off before a new one can be built. The Chinese began losing ground due to lack of support from the Allies and the USSR. Nationalists blame Communists, and vice versa, causing tension to increase between the two groups. In Europe, Nazi Germany launches Operation: Sealion. It captures some territory on the British mainland, but the invasion force stalls in central England and results in a stalemate reminiscent of the Western Front in WWI. Britain eventually expels all German troops from Great Britain after ...
In Asia, China explodes into civil war after an incident between Nationalist and Communist forces. The Japanese take advantage of the chaos by launching an offensive into unoccupied China. The conflicting defenders fall apart and are forced to retreat, leaving Japan controlling all of coastal Central and Southeast Asia. The US and Australia are finally making headway in the Pacific, but the situation looks bad for areas of Asia cut off from American support. In Europe, the Second Battle of Britain is still raging. Then, a breakthrough. The Manhattan Project has been working desperately to find the atomic bomb. They finally build one in March 1945 and use it against German forces in Europe, and also in Japan. World War II ends on July 4, 1945. The Soviet Union, lacking certain spies since the USSR wasn't a US ally, must make their own bomb. They start their atomic bomb program in secret with orders to get it done ASAP. Stalin knows, however, that until then, the Allies have the upper hand, so he gives up his conquered territory (but still makes sure it remains Communist and loyal only to him), except the territory he gained from Finland in the Winter War. Many native Russians protest, but later realize it was probably the right decision.
