In 1942, at the climax of the Second World War, about-to-be Lieutenant General Stillwell dies, before establishing the CBI. It, eventually does get established, but far too late in the War. India and Burma are then divided by the nations participating in the Allies. India remains occupied, though the British don't hold full power.....it remains a Cold War "battlefield". Note: This is not the timeline.
Inspired by "Divided Japan"
