Kaufmann Map

The Kaufmann Plan

In the Kaufman Universe, the USA and Russia never joined WW-II on either side, with the USA opting for neutrality and Russia using the war as a distraction to invade the Baltic states and fully annex them. The War raged on until 1953 and the final defeat of the Axis, but the cost to Europe, particularly France, was massive and at the final Treaty of the Saarland, it was decided that the Kaufman Plan should be implemented, turning Germany into a mini nation whilst the rest of the country was divided between European countries seeking revenge for the damage wrought by Germany and in France's case, the loss of its colonial Empire which had slipped away during wartime. The Netherlands, France, Austria, Czechoslovakia and Denmark all gained German territory and Germany effectively ceased to exist as a military power. Though both the USA and Russia objected, they were soundly ignored, and in France Charles de Gaulle experienced a surge of popularity due to his pushing of the Kaufman Plan, winning the election by a landslide, effectively establishing himself dictator of France.

1939 - Major Point of Divergence

In 1939 the Nazi-Soviet pact was signed between Stalin and Hitler. In this timeline, Stalin allowed Hitler to take the whole of Poland, without only some small Russian gains made. Stalin also guaranteed Russia's non-involvement in the European War, and a supply of oil for German tanks.

1939 - 1953: The War

Hitler's invasion of Poland and the rest of Europe went much as planned, with Britain soon the last non-allied or neutral country in Europe by 1945. Without American supplies coming in as guaranteed by the 1941 treaty of Non-Aggression between Germany and America, Britain began to starve. However, under a great agricultural program implemented by Winston Churchill Britain managed to produce enough of its own food to survive, and the siege continued. By 1951, however, Germany's hold on mainland Europe was increasingly hard to sustain with large resistance movements arising, and the USA had cancelled its treaty with Germany as part of its war with Japan, and was now shipping food to Britain, though not openly fighting Germany. In May, the siege was deemed to expensive and cancelled, and all hope of conquering Britain faded. Meanwhile, Mussolini had been overthrown and Italy was under control of a firmly anti-German government. Though not declaring war, Italy freed Yugoslavia and Albania who fought the German allies in Eastern Europe successfully, gaining territory and breaking Hitler's alliances with Romania, Hungary and Bulgaria. France and Poland revolted constantly, weakening Germany. In early 1952, the new republican Government in Spain declared war on Germany along with Italy, and British troops landed in Belgium shortly after. Germany's Empire collapsed in late 1953, with the devastating Kaufmann plan being implemented.

​This is a work in progress, badly mapped and not particularly good. If anyone even reads this page, I hope you like it and I will try to add to it soon. This is the first time I have done anything like this.
