The American war was the deadliest and most widespread conflict in the history of mankind. Lasting from 1940 to 1950, the War lead to the transformation of countless nations and the creation of several more. It was preceded by several "Precursor Conflicts", such as the Dalmatian War and Russian Civil War, that many historians have been led to believe contributed greatly to the start of the war.
The Powers of Spain, Italy and fascists in Prussia aimed to create authoritarian proxy states in Mexico, Brazil, Colombia and Iran; almost all of which were successful, in order to instigate war with western Democratic Powers such as France and the U.S.
The American war ended with the emergence of the United States in the west, and Prussia, France and the UK in Europe, as superpowers.
Course of the War
War in Africa and the United States (1940-1941)
On July 3rd, 1940, Italy invaded Abyssinia through the colonies of Somalia and Eritrea in an attempt to take control for the purpose of colonization. The Newly Nationalist Spain declared war against Abyssinia as well, leading France and the United Kingdom to declare war against Italy and Spain, pledging to protect Abyssinia. The term "Axis Pact" became popularized around this time, and Italy, Spain and Mexico accepted it, making it their official name.
Brazil, Venezuela and Colombia all supported the cause of the Axis Pact, sending supplies and troops to each member, Mexico most notably. Upon the American declaration of war against Mexico on August 12th, the US imposed a series of blockades and sanctions on the supporting states, greatly effecting the level of foreign support the Axis received.
Mexico and Spain made minimal advances in this year, having difficulty breaking past the American and French borders respectively. These acts of aggression led to the Prussians and Greeks supplying aid to the allies.
War in Asia and Europe (1941-1946)
By 1941, the Axis powers in Europe had already begun to intrude into French territory, both in Metropolitan France and its colonies. The French surrendered on July 19th, 1941, although forces in North Africa continued to fight until the end of the war under the command of General Charles DeGualle. By the time of French surrender in Europe, Abyssinia had been completely annexed and Eritrea retaken from the allies. The lack of French fortifications along the southern border allowed an ease of access for the Axis powers, and France was half occupied by July 1st.
At this point in time, a failed American invasion of Mexico had led to a counterattack by the Terracuerpo, Mexico's main army division. Occupation reached as far as southern Texas, but the cities of San Diego and Los Angles were heavily fortified and their civilian populations evacuated to prevent any major casualties.
On January 2nd, 1942, Japan declared war on the Allies, China responding by pledging military support to allied forces in Asia. This event resulted in the bolstering of the American Navy in cities such as Seattle, although the effect was not as widely felt in Europe. The Spanish and Japanese annexation of the American Philippines led to an increased sense of Nationalistic Conservatism among the American populous, reacting violently with the appointment of Soviet-Mexican immigrant and renowned Socialist, Leon Trotsky, to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Events in Iran and First-Stage Prussian Invasion (1943-1947)
Iran entered the war on April 27th, 1943, after the rise to power of the SUMKA party (Iranian National Socialists) in 1941. Aggression began with the invasion of Prussian Iraq (now the Levant) and the capture of Al-Baghdat. Occupation lasted under one week before Prussian liberation forces could launch a counter-assault and regain the land that had been taken, almost immediately encroaching upon Iranian territory. Tehran was surrounded on May 31st of the same year, but Melisoc, or Persian Nationalist, forces fortified the city for four years, causing the allies to retreat to the countryside around Tehran until 1947.
The Axis invasion of Prussia began suddenly in December of 1943, and the nation was half occupied by early 1944. Belgium and the Netherlands also fell to the Axis, although resistance was significant. Incursions into central Europe took as little as a week, as both the East and West Austrian, as well as Czechoslovakian armies were left weakened by the Great War, the aftermath of which stilled effected the region. Eastern Prussian forces managed to hold out until the end of the war, pushing the front line all the way back to the city of Cologne by 1948.
Turn of the War in Europe (1946-1948)
Axis forces reached Berlin on July 13th, 1946, but failed to encircle the city before a second wave of Prussian land forces could counterattack. The new Prussian Adlerstreik armored car made its battle debut just two weeks later, implementing anti-ballistics fiberglass in its windows and armoring strong enough to withstand the force of a rocket artillery strike with nothing more than blown out windows and exploded tires. A series of Prussian military innovations followed the Adlerstreik, including the Landkreuzer P 1500; a mobile artillery vehicle that was never intended to be made; so large that the previous largest Prussian tank, the Panzerkampfwagen III Maus was only one ninth of the size. Only three were ever deployed, two in Europe and one in Mexico, due to the immense cost of their production and use.
In September of 1947, both Belgium and The Netherlands were liberated. Despite the joining of Romania, Hungary, and Bulgaria to the side of the axis, occupation forces in central and northwestern Europe could not hold out, and the three nations completely surrendered by early 1948. A sweeping invasion of Northern Africa completely removed Spanish and Italian armies in a matter of two months, setting the stage for an Allied incursion into southern Europe, the likes of which were undertaken in the fall of 1948.
On Christmas of the same year, both Italy and Spain surrendered, Spain capitulating only 11 hours before its ally. Pro-western regimes were installed in Bulgaria and Hungary, Romania having its exiled monarchy reinstalled. Benito Mussolini was hanged by Anti-Fascist partisan forces two days prior, and Francisco Franco was executed via firing squad following the Málaga war crime trials in 1951.
End of the War (1949-1950)
The war ended on February 28th of 1950, when Mexico became the last of the Axis powers to surrender. Adolf Hitler was captured attempting to flee Mexico D.F. the day prior, and was forced to send an official order of surrender to several legions of the Mexican military that continued to fight. He was held in a prison in Málaga, Spain with others such as Francisco Franco and General Alba Aro.
Mexico was divided into three zones of occupation; American, British and Central American (Belonging to the newly formed Central American Union). In 1955, the occupation was lifted and Mexico was reinstated as a sovereign nation, joining NATO and successfully reapplying for membership to the League of Nations a year later.
