Chapter I: Overview
Following the Axis victory against the Allied invasion in Normandy known as Operation D-Day and the incredible number of casualties followed soon after the invasion, the American government decided to retire completely from the Atlantic Theater and leave the British to fend for their own in the west. This allowed Hitler free reign in the Channel once again and the U-boat war continued. Although the British persistence against the Nazi's was admirable, it proved short lived. Without the intervention of the US navy in the Atlantic Ocean, the Royal Navy was once again being hunted down by the wolf pack's of the Germans and this time, nor mercy, nor sympathy, was sparred from the Krauts. Near the end of '44, against strong opposition from Prime Minister Churchill and Queen Elizabeth the II'sd, the British have capitulated and a Pro-German Government was installed. Edward VIII was brought back to power alongside Oswald Mosley, although the king's only role was to ensure the population that the Royal Family shall continue to rule Britain, while in reality Oswald was the one pulling all the strings, watched closely by the German Reich.
Regarding the Eastern Front, the Red Army was able to push out the Wehrmacht out of Russia proper, yet were unable to advance any further into Polish or Romanian territory. The Axis were fighting like rabid dogs for every kilometer of land within Poland, and their efforts, sacrifice and sweet was paid back. With the Reinforcements brought forth from the west front, and the return of the Air force in Poland, the Red army's offense has been fully stopped. Slowly, the Wehrmacht began to push back the ride tide with the assistance of the newly re-acquired Air domination and British volunteers and military equipment. It would of taken Hitler another two years to reach Moscow's gates once again, and another one to pass the Urals and Caucasus. Yet, ever since the Wehrmacht has re-entered Russian territory, mass hysteria spread through the armed forces and morale was once again dropping at an alarming rate. With the fall of Moscow, the majority of the Army abandoned the Motherland and signed up as German volunteers, being promised a free country, safe from communism and under German protection. In the winter of 1947, Stalin meet the German officials in Arkhangelsk, signing a humiliating peace treaty for the Soviet Union, ceding Germany everything behind the Urals and liberating a Russian buffer state under Nazi protection, stretching from the Volga till the last remnants of the Soviet Union, Siberia. Hitler would of preferred to continue the war till he completely annexed the communist, but the wastelands of Siberia and Asia made him get to the conclusion that a peace will be more favorable.
The main sanctions against the USSR in the treaty were the following :
* Ceding everything behind the Volga river to the Greater German Reich
* The creation of an authoritarian state of Russia which would include parts of Siberia, the northern and central part of the Urals and territories in front of the Volga river. The state would be a German protectorate.
* The creation of an authoritarian state of Turkestan which would include Central Asia and the southern half of the Urals. The state would be a German protectorate
* Massive demobilization of the Red army, allowing it enough troops just to keep the nation united and protect their borders from skirmishes.
* Destruction of major industrial centers in Siberia, allowing enough only to feed it's army, take care of it's population and the creation of railways or other structures that will help improve the living condition of the people.
* The creation of an authoritarian state of Primorsk, serving as a buffer between the Soviet Union and the newly created state of Korea, which would include everything behind the river line stretching through Manchuria and the former Soviet islands. The state would be a German protectorate
* The Soviet Union will immediately stop alimenting the partisans back in Europe with equipment and officers. Continuing to do so will result in a possible invasion of the Union and replacement of the current cabinet with a fascist one
Political Map of the Soviet Union and it's neighbors in January 1948
Shortly after the treaty, Stalin had mysteriously disappeared, leaving the Union without a leader, yet nobody felt sorrow for him. Even if he had returned in the country, he would of been immediately taken over by the NKDP and make way for Molotov to gain supreme control over the country. With the disappearance of Stalin, Molotov lost the opportunity to show himself as the savior of the people from the tyranny and incompetence of Stalin, yet seized power of the country anyway. His rise to power meet no objection from the people or the communist party, being welcomed as the new leader of the Union, one which could bring back the glory of the old days. His first order of business was the reorganization of the remnants of the Red army, rebuilding the industry in Siberia and try to catch up technologically with the west. As well, he wished to re-arrange the cabinet, removing the Nazi sympathizers from their ranks and bringing in more loyal subjects.
The army shall be organized into corps of 3 divisions, and another two armies shall be organized which will include the remnants of the Soviet's mobile forces and Field HQ's, which will be leaded by Field Marshall Zhuikov and Field Marshall Chuikov. These two armies shall be placed in the extremities of the border with Russia, while 2 Corps shall be placed near the border of Turkestan and another two to defend the Soviet side of the river from Primorsk
The soviets could of not hoped to beat the Third Reich in industrial power, yet the re-industrialization programmed continued to allow the Union to better arm herself and raise the infrastructure in Siberia in the meantime.
Lastly, Lavrenti Beria and Georgij Bazilevich have been replaced by Andriy Orlov and Nikolaj Bulganing respectively. The former ministers of the communist cabinet have been sent towards the Kamchatka peninsula where they shall be watched intensively.
Regarding one of the Soviets neighbors, Japan, they have capitulated in March 1946 to the United States after the launch of two nuclear bombs, one hitting downtown Tokyo and the other missing it's original target of Fukuoka and hitting the bottom of the ocean beneath the island. This has caused one of the most massive earthquakes in Japanese history and destroyed 3/4 of the maritime life near the Japanese coast and in a range of 200 miles. This left Japan without a major food extraction and caused dissent in the country as famine began to ensue and US assistance being months away.
Unfortunately, the Soviet Union was too weak at that time to intervene and grab some land from Manchuria and Korea, being to preoccupied with the Germans approaching being only mere months away from the Ural mountains.
Regarding the United States, after the liberation of Japan from the fascist rule, they concentrated their entire attention upon the nuclear arm's race against Germany, hopping to perfect this weapon before the krauts, forcing them into a peace treaty favorable for the allies. Unffortuanetly, the Krauts have perfected the nuclear bomb and the ICBM before the Americans, launching a miniaturized bomb in New York, showing the strength of the Third Reich. After the demonstration of the A-Bomb upon American soil, Joseph Kennedy Sr accepted peace with Third Reich in the winter of 1947. In the last day's of December, Molotov issued the "Rebirth of the Motherland" speech, as it shall be know in history. He promised the people to bring the Soviet Union back into it's past glorious days and drive out the German invaders off their legitimate land and free their brothers behind the Urals. No mercy shall be spared for the Third Reich and they shall liberate Europe from the Nazi tyranny, or die trying.
