The North American War (1925-1930) is sometimes considered to be a phase of the "Fourth Global War" along with the First and Second Eurasian Wars. Like the Eurasian Wars, the North American War grew out of the Third Global War. Unlike the Third Global War or the Eurasian Wars, the North American War was confined to the North American continent.
The North American Confederation and Oregon had lost considerable territory in the Third Global War. Oregon itself was under military occupation by Japan and Aruta. Seeking restoration of the lost territory, liberation of Oregon, and vengeance against their enemies, totalitarian regimes took control of the Confederation, under the name Phoenix Party, soon spreading to occupied Oregon. Branches grew up in former NAC and Oregonian territory, and by 1921, the former enemies of the Confederation consented to holding referenda in the NAC's lost territories. Most were returned to the Confederation under the agreement that they would remain demilitarized for 25 years.
The War Begins
In the wake of France and Japan's disastrous defeat in the First Eurasian War, the North American Confederation, seeking vengeance, invaded Minnesota-held Northern Godaiko. This initial phase is known as the Minnesota War, but it quickly spread once Confederation forces crossed the Mississippi River into Minnesota proper, becoming the North American War. Oregon began a rebellion at the same time against Japanese occupation.
The British Alliance initially enjoyed considerable success, pushing well into enemy territory. At their height, most of Minnesota and Canada were under Confederation rule, and much of eastern Arkansas and Misuri were likewise occupied. Provincial governments were established in conquered territories, with voting rights restricted to a small number of collaborators. Oregonian rebels had driven the occupiers out of much of the west, and NAC forces had driven the occupiers out of parts of eastern Oregon
By 1927, British power was beginning to falter, and their advances began slowly eroding. The Mississippi was crossed on May 9, 1928, and, for the first time in the war, enemy troops were now on NAC soil. Oregon fell faster.
On July 12, 1930, with Canadian troops approaching Philadelphia, the recently-crowned King Alexander sacked NAC Prime Minister ???, and seized temporary control of the Confederation under a never-before-invoked clause in the Design permitting direct royal authority in the event of rebellion against the Crown. Though debate rages even to this day of the constitutionality of Alexander's actions, it is generally accepted that Alexander's actions saved the British nations from further destruction. Alexander promptly requested a ceasefire, offering unconditional surrender for both his states. The war was over. Alexander was among those tried for war crimes, but his case was quickly dismissed.
Oregon and the Confederation were placed under martial law by the victors. The Phoenicians were banned, and democratic institutions were restored. The victors were magnanimous, restoring the nations' pre-GW3 borders, and restoring Oregon to eventual full independence. Reconstruction, carried out by the newly-formed League of North American States, restored the infrastructure of the British nations, and soon the British-Americans had come to despise their former regime and respect their former enemies. So much so that when the Second Eurasian War broke out in 1937, they fought alongside the Japanese and the French.
