The following timeline offers a complete history of events in For Want of an Inch.

Autumn, 1916: Divergence

On the 7th of October, Corporal Adolf Hitler is hit by shrapnel in a British artillery bombardment near the French commune of Bapaume. Unlike in our timeline, where this resulted in a non-fatal wound to his left thigh and Hitler's return to active service in March of the following year, in this timeline he suffers an arterial bleeding and succumbs to blood loss before reaching an aid station. After four and a half months of fighting with negligible territorial changes to show for it, the Battle of the Somme stalemates by the 18th of November. In spite of Hitler's demise, one million soldiers have still died, fallen wounded or gone missing in a World War that will drag on for two more years. It is the death of a lowly dispatch runner, however, that will come to mark 1916 as a turning point in history.

1916 to 1929: Interlude

The remainder of the war and the better half of our Interbellum occur in this timeline largely as in ours.
