World War II was a war with the British Empire, the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Brazil and the USSR on one side, and Germany, Italy, Japan and Argentina on the other.

Short War

September On the 2nd Germany invades Poland, and Great Britain and France declare war. President Garner addresses the nation to state that America "has no interests in a 'Second World War' and WILL remain neutral in this conflict." The public supports him, as do most Republicans and conservative Democrats.

May The German launch Fall Gelb (Case Yellow), the invasion of the Low Countries.

June, France fell as well as the Low Countries. President Garner got defense spending increased, including a plan for 25,000 new aircraft for the Army Air Corps (one-half of OTL) and 10% increases in tonnage for the US Navy (slightly less than in OTL).


May - The bombing of Parliament occurs, along with the "Hess Affair". Rudolf Hess, Deputy Führer, successfully contacts the Duke of Hamilton at his home near Glasgow. Unlike OTL, Hess is not injured and finds his way to Hamilton without being hospitalized and then turned in by Hamilton.

The Blitz is going very badly for England, and with little or no help from the United States seeming likely (in fact, given Lindbergh's vehement and Dewey's tacit isolationism, even possible), many in England are starting to re-consider Hitler's previous opening for peace terms. Hamilton, at first concerned at being charged a traitor, hears Hess out and hides him in his home for two weeks, under the name "Albert Horn", a supposed German refugee.

Hamilton then returns to London and meets with several other "pro-peace" MPs and members of the House of Lords.

On the 27th, Hess is brought forward without arrest to the House of Commons to speak to the House. Churchill is outraged and sends the military in to arr

May - The Spring Offensive of '42 begins in Russia as the Soviets attempt to retake Moscow with fresh troops from Siberia . Given a winter to dig in, the Germans are prepared for them, both with fresh troops and armor, and with well-established air bases west of Moscow.

June - The retaking is stalled.

July - Meanwhile, a push by the Germans starts towards Voronezh (it falls nearly three weeks earlier than OTL) in the south and the oil fields of the Caucasus. Grozny fell by the end of the month. Japan attacks Borneo, declaring war on the British and Dutch to seize Singapore, Malaysia and the East Indies, while Germany makes it know it will enter if Britain puts up too much of a fight.

August - On the 2nd, the German 4th Panzer took Stalingrad before Marshall Timoshenko could get his defenders there. Another blow to both ego (Stalin's) and Russian morale. Baku, largest city in the Soviet Azerbaijan, falls on the 12th and the Caucasus oil fields become property of the Reich. Fighting continues through out the summer and fall of 1942. The Battle of Nizhniy Novgorod occurs in the late month with a new push from the Germans eastward. Stalin falls back again and re-establishes his capital in Novosibirsk, deep in the heart of Russia.

September - By now the Japanese have attacked Java and on the 22nd the take Singapore.

est Hess before he can speak. Hamilton and several other MPs block their way and there is a stand-off. Eventually, Churchill calls the troops back and Hess proceeds to speak to the HC. His speech is simple but direct and though receiving no applause, he leaves with Hamilton to a home in downtown London.

On the 29th, a resolution is voted on and passed by Parliament, calling on Lord Halifax, Foreign Affairs Secretary, to open negotiations with the Germans. Churchill swears he will resign, if the resolution passes, but his threat is ignored. He does resign and almost immediately a vote is taken, making Anthony Eden the Prime Minister. Within 48 hours, negotiations have begun, with Rudolf Hess acting as head of the German team in Bristol and the Duke of Hamilton acting as the head of the British team.

June On the 8th, 1941, a peace treaty is signed between the British Empire and the Third Reich. The British retain all their imperial holdings except for Hong Kong (ceded to the Japanese) and Malta (ceded to the Italians). Germany keeps northern France as a part of the Reich and the Vichy remain allies.

In the United States the end of the war boosts the political fortunes of the isolationists (including President Dewey) and leaves the interventionists (mostly liberal Democrats) scrambling against the obvious question of "Why did you want to involve us in a war, when even England didn't want to fight it?"

Charles Lindbergh especially was honored for his part in "keeping America out of a losing war" and was elected to the US Senate as a Republican from New Jersey later in 1942.

Operation Barbarossa

Meanwhile, only two weeks passed, and the Nazis launched their attack on the Soviet Union. Neither side was surprised that war would eventually come; the Molotov-von Ribbentrop Pact was considered "temporary" at best. But the Germans were surprised at the ease of their invasion against the Russians.

July - By mid-month, the Germans were to Kiev. Free to pull troops from France, even Norway (given no threat from England), they were able to reinforce what was already a huge force against the Russians.

August - By late month Leningrad was taken.

September - On the 10th the "Immolation of Leningrad" happened (It was enabled by a slightly advanced timeline of Barbarossa).


October - Immediately the push for Moscow began, with Panzers pulled from the north after the fall of Leningrad, Hitler's forces were able to plow into Moscow. By the 15th (again advanced from our timeline), the Germans had hit the "Mozhaisk line" of defense and given it was not as complete, pushed through to Moscow.

As in OTL for Leningrad, the Soviets put up a huge defense and it slowed the German advance once they reached the city. Unlike OTL, it was not enough. Stalin ordered the evacuation of the Communist Party much later than our timeline, for the equivalent point in the Battle of Moscow and when the civilian evacuation occurred, it was even more of a panic. Thousands died as they tried to flee eastward with Luftwaffe planes bombing. Stalin and about half the Politburo made it to Nizhniy Novograd.

November - Finally on the 17th, despite nearly 100,000 fresh Russian troops nearly to the city, the Kremlin fell. The world was stunned and Stalin, nearly hysterical, tried to broadcast a message of revenge and hope to the Soviet people.

The Russian reinforcements attempted to re-take the city, but by then the Germans had established their defenses and Luftwaffe planes were operating out of Moscow airfields. They pulled back to Novgorod to re-group.

In the south, the push had slowed, but not much and Odessa had easily fallen and the Germans were much closer to the Caucasus and Stalingrad than in OTL by the time winter set in in late 1941.

After Barbarossa

May - The Spring Offensive of '42 begins in Russia as the Soviets attempt to retake Moscow with fresh troops from Siberia . Given a winter to dig in, the Germans are prepared for them, both with fresh troops and armor, and with well-established air bases west of Moscow.

June - The retaking is stalled.

July - Meanwhile a push by the Germans starts towards Voronezh (it falls nearly three weeks earlier than OTL) in the south and the oil fields of the Caucuses. Grozny fell by the end of the month. Japan attacks Borneo, declaring war on the British and Dutch to seize Singapore, Malaysia and the East Indies, while Germany makes it know it will enter if Britain puts up too much of a fight.

August - On the 2nd, the German 4th Panzer took Stalingrad before Marshall Timoshenko could get his defenders there. Another blow to both ego (Stalin's) and Russian morale. Baku, largest city in the Soviet Azerbaijan, falls on the 12th and the Caucasus oil fields become property of the Reich. Fighting continues throughout the summer and fall of 1942. The Battle of Nizhniy Novgorod occurs in the late month with a new push from the Germans eastward. Stalin falls back again and re-establishes his capital in Novosibirsk, deep in the heart of Russia.

September - By now the Japanese have attacked Java and on the 22nd the take Singapore

The Spring Offensive of '43 begins for the Germans as the Soviets are pushed farther and farther back into Siberia.

March - The Japanese Fifteenth Army, under Lieutenant General Shojiro Iida, takes Burma and moves to the Indian frontier. The British reinforce Calcutta and Dhaka. British naval vessels engage in a terse battle in the Java Sea with Imperial Japanese navy forces. The battle, fought almost exclusively with aircraft carrier forces, is a stalemate, with the British withdrawing to the Port of Calcutta. They remain there briefly, but the danger of Japanese bombing proves to great, and they move to Visakhapatnam.

June - By now the Aral Sea coasts are in German hands and they capture Kazakhstani oil fields, one of the last the Soviets still held.

September - By now the winter is in sight, but the Germans are now past the Urals in the north and Stalin has once again re-located his "temporary capital" to Yakutsk. He swears on (what is left of) Soviet radio, that "there will be no more retreats...the counter-offensive begins at Yakutsk", though few believe him. The Japanese return to Singapore, but finish securing their holdings in Malaysia and the Dutch East Indies, and move in on New Guinea.

October - By early month japan has taken the western half of New Guinea. German troops push eastward again, stopping only after taking Novosibirsk and Omsk in the late month as winter sets in again. Meanwhile, a new German tank, the "Panther" is being introduced into the field. The Soviets with virtually no fuel oil, haven't launched a tank offensive since the Battle of Nizhniy Novgorod. Supplies of anti-tank artillery ammunition and rockets are drying up as well. Most analysts in the US, the UK, and of course Germany feel that the next spring offensive in '44, will finally crush the Soviets. ANZAC forces fortify Papua and come under constant bombardment all through the fall of 1943.

Meanwhile in the United States, sentiments about the war are changing. As the Germans apparently prepare to finish off the Russians, and the Japanese seem close to not only taking China and Southeast Asia, but perhaps Australia as well, many isolationists, including Dewey,
