Casualties and Losses

5 (4 local Arabs and a Persian volunteer)

7 (All local Arabs)


With Turkey and Germany realising oil was also of importance to the Allies, a small detachment of German secret agents, Persian volunteers and Turkish troops covertly by see on several cargo ships to encourage a local rebellion. The 6 day anti-colonial rising did not work all that well with only Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Ajman putting up any serious contest to the Ex-colonial regime. Saudi Arabian border forces would join forces with the Trucial States' security forces to protect the OTL pipeline that went through the Trucial States (or UAE after independence in 1945). Finally it all petered out and the foreign forces left. The Turkish frigate Mustafa would protect the fleeing rebels and shell out Ajman on the last day after serving in the earlier 1946 Battle For Bahrain . The German agents did manage to blow up an Abu Dhabi oil well, cut the pipeline to Saudi Arabia and sabotage a refinery in Ajman on the 27. This was the final major clash of the Second World War. Fighting would end until the Omsk rebellion on 1949.

This list of battles will end here, unless someone else wants to continue it or the main TL, if Germany army 17 wishes.

Causes of the conflict

The cutting off of the Allied oil supply was seen as a tactical necessity at the time.


Both Turkey and Germany had realised oil was also of importance to the Allies. An Arab successful insurgency could gain them some permanent access to Gulf oil, while blowing up pipelines an alike could reduce output to the Allies for some time. The Turkish navy had been rebuilt and sent directly to the middle eastern theater, bombarding and seizing the coastal ports.


A clear Trucial States victory, but oil supplies to the Allies were disrupted for several weeks.

Political outcome

Turkey was emboldened and stayed on the German’s side. South Africa's leader, Jan Smuts, would also praise his troops efforts and rally the colonial forces in the Gulf for many years to come.
