|World War II|
In 1939, a major war breaks out in Europe, pitting Italy and Germany against Britain and France. This includes conflict all over Europe, with Russia also invading Poland, and Russia. Meanwhile, a war is ongoing between China and Japan in Asia. The United States decides to not enter the war. However, in April 1840, Japan launches a surprise attack on the United States, bombing the American Naval Base at Pearl Harbor to make it more dificult for the US to prevent planned Japanese actions in the rest of the Pacific. The USA Declares war on Japan because of this, but so does Germany, sensing that it would cause an alliance with America. President Roosevelt has no choice but to ally with Germany and Italy, and join the Second World War. This all happens because the attack on Pearl Harbor occurs earlier, and the Tripartite Pact never occurs.

World War II
America immediately enters the war after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. They end up with China in the Pacific Theatre. Japan soon invades Axis parts of Indochina as well as the Philippines. By late 1942, all have been captured by Japan. The United States, with help from China, stops Japan's expansion in the Battle of Midway. China then successfully attacks Japanese forces in Indochina, causing Indochina to be completely placed under Chinese Rule. China also successfully captures Hong Kong, and makes it a key naval base. However, China decided to hold firm in Indochina and not advance into the Dutch East Indies, also part of the Allies. The United States unsuccessfully tries to invade the Philippines in 1943, but loses the Battle of Cebu. However, five months later, the US makes another attempt at invasion of the Philippines, but this time they are successful, winning the Battle of Davao and regaining control of Southern Philippines. They would not successfully control Northern Philippines until 1945, when Japan withdrew from the Philippines. Later in 1945, the Soviets invaded China from the West, causing them to partially witdhraw from Indochina. In 1946, the United States, with help from Germany and Italian Chemist Ernico Fermi, finally developed an atomic bomb. The United States decided drop the first one on Japan, and dropped it on Hiroshima, Japan. After receiving the massive blow, Japan refused to withdraw, by attacking and successfully regaining American Iwo Jima. After this, the United States bombed Saporro, and Japan surrenders. They are the second of the four major Allies to surrender, only after France. Their surrender in August 1946 marked the point of no return in the war, which secured an Axis Victory.
The European Theatre mainly pits Britain, France, and the Soviet Union against Italy and Germany. They are all accompanied by smaller European countries, such as the Netherlands for the Allies and Romania for the Axis.
It all started when Germany invaded Poland. This caused France and Britain to declare war on Germany due to past agreements. Russia also invaded Poland, but slowly left it, eventually letting Germany completely control Poland. Meanwhile, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania felt that they had no choice but to join Russia, and Russia invaded Finland. Germany continued by invading Denmark and Norway. In 1940, Germany invaded the Netherlands, Belgium, and Northern France. Italy also soon declared war on Britain and France, and began advancing from the South. The French government fled Paris, and France surrendered to Germany in June, and let Northern France be under German control, while Southern France remained under French control (Vichy France). In 1940, as the United States enterred the war, Britain asked for Russia's help. Russia originally declined until axis powers Bulgaria, Hungary, and Romania began their invasion of Soviet Ukraine. Russia declared war on China, USA, Germany, and Italy in January 1941. Only Britain, Russia, and a small remaining French Army were now in the way of Germany, Italy, USA, and the three Balkan Axis powers. Germany proceeded to constantly bomb Britain, and the Blitz caused great damage to British stength and morale. American planes soon land in Germany, and are able to help Germany out in the Battle of Britain. In that air campaign, Germany, with help from the US, vastly outnumbers Britain, and Germany has a major victory. This causes Germany to begin its invasion of Britain in 1943, and win the Battle of Dover, causing Germany to begin sending land soldiers to Britain. After invading and capturing Portsmouth, Germany ends up with two different port cities in Southern Britain, and they are able to get enough troops to begin advancing Northwards. However, Canada manages to counterattack German aircraft during the Blitz, much weakening the German air force. This creates a stalemate for about two years in Britain. However, during this time, Ukraine becomes almost completely captured by Bulgaria, Hungary, and Romania, resulting in Russia's withdrawal from Finland, as well as some areas of the Baltic States, and Russia's successful defensive of Kharkiv. In 1945, the Soviets decide to invade China from the West, but meanwhile try their hardest to defend their border from Kharkiv to Rostov-on-Don. Germany, meanwhile, invades Soviet Belarus in December of 1945, and Russia decides to surrender. Without having to worry about Russia anymore, Germany picks up its invasion of Britain. Japan surrenders when the United States drops its second atomic bomb on Japan, Japan surrenders, followed soon by de Gaulle's France. With only Britain remaining, the USA threatens Britain with an atomic bomb. Britain does not surrender, and an atomic bomb is dropped on Leeds. Britain surrenders just two days later, on June 7, 1946.
Treaty of Genoa
In 1946, it is agreed that a conference regarding peace treaties for the war would be held in Genoa, Italy. This conference is dominated by the four powers of Germany, USA, Italy, and China. It is agreed that an International Union of Nations will be made, and it is decided that it should convene in New York, far away from Europe. There would be four permanent members of the Security Council, with tose four being China, USA, Germany, and Italy. But the majority of the treaty was determining the borders in Europe. Estonia, Lattvia, and Lithuania joined together to join the Baltic Union, which would be able to defend itself against the Soviet Union. Ukraine was granted its independence from the Soviet Union, but Crimea and Eastern Union remained Soviet. Albania remained a part of Italy, which also gained Slovenia, Corsica, and southeastern France. Moldova became part of Romania, also to lower the power of the Soviet Union. Germany consumes Poland, Luxembourg, Belgium, Netherlands, and Northeastern France. Other changes in borders occurred worldwide, such as British Egypt would fall under Italian rule, while the British withdraw from Palestine and Manchuria and Korea falling under Chinese control. Indonesia and India were granted their independence from Allied European powers, and Indochina, Thailand, Malaya, Hong Kong, Macau, and Singapore were put under Chinese Rule.
The Treaty lead to the rise of three superpowers: China, USA, and Germany. This lead to a Cold War, between Fascist Germany, Communist China, and "Free" America. There were four "Worlds" established and defined by the International Union during the Cold War. They were: The United States and its allies, mainly democratic; China and its allies, mainly Communist; Germany and its allies, mainly fascist; and the developing countries or countries not aligned with any of China, USA, or Germany. Of the Secondary powers, which were the main Allies in WWII and Italy, France and Britain in the First World with the USA; Russia was with China in the Second World, and Japan and Italy were with Germany in the Third World. This led to the Cold War, with wars such as the Korean War of Independence, the Vietnam War, the Arab-Israeli war, and the Cuban Conflict resulting in worldwide tensions and eventually World War III as a result of conflicts between India and Pakistan.
