How much would the present world change if Balkan nations allied and grew into major powers post WWI? What wars would change? Will technological progress slow down or speed up?
Point of Divergence
In this scenario Greece and Bulgaria decide to form an alliance and expand into post-WWI Turkey. Previous tensions between the two had been calmed for due to several factors. First of which is a common hatred to Turkey and previous actions of the Ottoman Empire. Another factor in the easing of these tensions is a rise in Balkan nationalism, giving Greece and Bulgaria reasons to see each other "related" in the sense that both are Balkan nations going through this nationalist rise. Since the weakened Ottoman Empire had collapsed a couple of years prior, Greece and Bulgaria took the perfect opportunity to take some land in Anatolia. Yugoslavia, Hungary, and Czechoslovakia fear the growing Bulgaria and Greece, so they ally to become equal with them. This results in another war taking place half a decade before WWII in our timeline. Others include previously small nations growing, and possible empires matching that of the British and French of the time.
