ORIGINS OF THE COLD WAR
German Civil War
- The White Movement secures victory in the Russian Civil War.
- The victory of the Nazis in a three-way civil war between them, German conservatives, and the government of the newly-formed Spartacist government.
- The rise of the German Reich.
- The economic and military rivalry between the United States and its allies and Nazi Germany and its satellite states.
Main points of diversion:
- The Allied invasion of the Ottoman Empire is delayed until mid-1916 due to reasons of revision. The presence of Westerners in the region provokes a brief jihad attacking both Ottomans and Allies.
- The western front of World War I/The Great War is fought into early 1919.
- The White Movement is more organized due to the Yalta Symposium, which agreed to a constitutional government with the czar serving as merely a formal and social role, with little political power. The armies of the Whites are unified as the Russian Patriotic Army.
- The opening of the Bosporus allows materiel from the British to reach Russia. This gives more support to the Denikin-Wrangel front.
- Stalin is killed at Tsaritsyn, Lenin commits suicide. Numerous famous Bolsheviks after the war are tried for war crimes at the Odessa Hearings.
- Kaiser Wilhelm II is killed by the Spartacusbund. His son reigns as the next kaiser for several months before abdicating. The Spartacists sieze power in Germany.
- Civil war in Germany erupts almost immediately between the Spartacists and former imperial officers, such as Hindenburg, the latter of whom gains limited assistance from Poland.
- A third group, the National Socialist German Workers' Party, becomes a third faction in the German Civil War, opposed to both the communists and the conservatives.
- The Nazis win the German Civil War. Adolf Hitler becomes leader of the new German Reich.
- Tensions between the United States and the German Reich lead into a non-violent war as both sides seek to impede the influence of the other on the global scale.
