Oooohhhh, a sequel, care to elaborate on it?
Andreios II: With so much excitment, how can I not continue on?
Skimming through John Bartlow Martin's excellent two volume biography on Stevenson, I am getting several ideas on what President Stevenson could do in office...stuff like Cyprus and Egypt.
Egypt is an intriguing question mark. Historically, we had Egypt take over the Suez Canal in 1956, triggering the Suez Crisis. Would we have gotten the Suez Crisis if Stevenson was in office instead of Eisenhower? That's one of the questions I am pondering.
As for your ideas on possible AARs, Andreios II, I appreciate them.
Attlee will be up for an second term as Prime Minister while Anthony Eden is in charge of the Conservative Party (Churchill having retired after serving eight years as Prime Minister). Whoever wins the election may have an impact on how the Suez situation develops.
Interesting times ahead.
That would not be a pleasant alternative. :shudder: On the plus side though after re-reading the summary in this AAR President Stevenson will almost certainly handle it better than the idiot Ike, so that's good news at least.Attlee and Suez? I'm reaching for the painkillers just thinking about it!
Regarding the postwar sequel, might I suggest Nomonhan's Cold War Techtree Extension Project? It'll allow a more-or-less direct port, since the tech tree is vanilla-plus rather than a replacement. The event trees for the '50s are pretty well fleshed-out too.
