The Second Eurasian War (1937-1946) is often considered the third phase of the "Fourth Global War". It was the bloodiest war in world history to date.

Origins

In the aftermath of the First Eurasian War, the Quintuple Alliance of England (now known as the Franco-British Empire), Austria (now referred to as the Greater German Empire), Greece, Russia and China dominated the Eurasian landmass.

After the North American War, the British powers in North America came to be aligned with Japan and her allies, the North American continent enjoying a degree of unity with the recently-created League of North American States.

With reconstruction of Oregon and the North American Confederation progressing steadily, the still-mobilized armies of the various North American powers, along with those of Japan herself, began to look towards the Eurasian landmass, at the possibility of liberating the oppressed peoples of those continents.

The War Starts

In 1937, the Union of British India and the United Franco-Indian States declared themselves independent of England, allying with the remaining free Indian states and the Japanese Indian colonies.

England declared war upon the rebel colonies, and Japan and the League of North American States declared war upon England.

The War Spreads

China and the German Empire soon declared war upon the Japanese-North American Alliance. Russia and Italy remained neutral.

The War was fought bitterly. Much of the fighting in the early stages was naval. Slowly, the combined Japanese-North American naval forces beat back the Eurasian forces. Only in India was there land fighting, and the Eurasian forces fell back. A temporary Indian Alliance was established between the various Indian states fighting for independence. Japanese India was granted independence within the Federation of Japanese States, as was Indonesia.

Conflict in the Middle East

In 1941, the Shah of Iran was deposed by a Japanese-North American sponsored coup, his son allying himself with the Japanese.

The Ottoman Federation was torn by the war. Some, particularly the Turks, wished to ally with the Eurasian Coalition, while others, particularly strong among the Arabs, sought to join the Japanese. The Federation fell apart as one after another Arab state broke off.

The Germans aided their Turkish allies, seeking to retain control of the Suez Canal, but the combined Japanese-Arab forces overran it, liberating Egypt in the process. Japanese naval forces were now able to enter the eastern Mediterranean.

Fighting in East Asia

Meanwhile, Japanese forces had landed in Chôxen, beginning its liberation. They were halted, however, in Manchuria. With the advent of the Japanese defeat, China began preparations for an all out amphibious invasion of Japan. A huge force number close to 1 million soldiers, backed up with warships, submarine and air force was assembled near the Chinese coastline of Fujian. However, the Japanese discovered this in November 1942 and launched the largest air attack of the war, annihilating the invasion force. An attempt to stop the Japanese reinforcing Choxen by a similar bombing run, failed disastrously. After that, the Japanese began to push the Chinese back, carrying the war into Manchuria and finally, into the heartland of China itself. Britain, meanwhile was beaten back across the Indian Ocean. King John II attempted to maintain control of the situation, determined not to allow the Japanese into the Atlantic as in the last war, which he knew had contributed to Britain's defeat.

The race for the nuclear bomb

By the end of the Third Eurasian War, four powers knew how to use nuclear weapons and all of them had used a nuclear weapon at some point in the war, they were the North American Confederation, Japan, England and the Greater German Empire. The NAC's nuclear weapons program was far ahead of the other power's developing it, mainly because of the large number of Jewish scientists who had fled there in the 1930s. Japan had it's first nuclear reaction in 1944 and probably would not have developed the bomb without NAC help. Ironically, although the NAC tested the nuclear bomb first, England was the first to use it.

The collapse of England's allies

By the end of 1945, England, Greater Germany, Turkey and China were in chaos, their armed forces disintegrating while the Allies advanced on all fronts. Russia captured Berlin in early January. Similar rapid gains were made by the Japanese in China and the Atlantic, as they captured Bermuda and once again bombarded the coast of England (although not Wales, Ireland or Scotland). England used the world's first nuclear bomb against Lyons on March 8th 1946, only to have the NAC respond with the triple A-bombing of Dover, Birmingham and Norwich. Hamburg fell to the Russians and Germany surrendered, followed very quickly by Turkey.
