I'd like to get a thread going to discuss possible events for African nations. I have a large amount of material on Ethiopia so can research questions in that area; Italian invasion, British liberation etc. I expect many of these events would be flavor events as geo political significance is lacking in most cases. Some areas of exploration for what ifs could be; Axis siezure of South Africa (I believe most UK, commonwealth troop transshipment was going around Cape of Good Hope vs. the Suez Canal which obviously exited into a very hot war zone in the Med. Large supply of rubber in Belgian Congo, consequenses of occupation by Brits or Axis after fall of France? German colonies in South East and South West Africa? Portuguese? Boer resurgence in South Africa? As far as historical sources I believe Paxham (sp?) has a work on Africa in World War I but secondary sources seem limited. Any reading suggestions would be helpful. I have a strong history background but need some assistance with technicalities of scripting. I intend on perusing Harvard's site to get the basics. Comments or suggestions?
