During the Korean War, General Douglas MacArthur urged, at least one time but possibly more, President Harry Truman to use atomic weaponry on military bases in Manchuria, PRC. In OTL, Truman rejected and had MacArthur dismissed.
What if MacArthur could've pressured Truman to use atomic weaponry to end the Korean War in a decisive American victory?
What if we had a 6-2-5 Upheaval?

OTL vs ATL
Since this will be a large list, there will eventually be a page dedicated to this. For now, it is here:
- North Korea and South Korea re-united under Syngman Rhee, becoming the Republic of Korea.
- Cuba does not fall to Communism.
- The People's Republic of China falls to the Republic of China, and the nation is utterly changed.
- Korea develops into a modern power in place of Japan, and China stays as a weak power, divided into Tibet, Manchuria, Taiwan, and China.
- Yugoslavia emerges as a regional power in Central Europe, and fights with the USSR and USA before collapsing around the same time as the USSR finally gave in.
- USSR falls in regions, with Central Asia and the Caucasus gaining independence before Ukraine and Belarus.
Pages to be Worked On
To keep myself focused, here are the main page goals for this month:
- United States

- Republic of Korea
