Well, I guess Italy sucked just as in OTL and was saved by Germany's final victory, if you look at their gains. Just Nice, Corsica, a slice of Savoy and Dalmatia, Albania, Montenegro, most of Greece, Tunisia, Egypt and half rule of the Middle East. Even here Italy would have done way better in not shaking Hitler's hand at Berlin...
Under the possible assumption that Nazi Germany took control around 1955, wouldn't their military eventually choke Great Britain of it's supply lines and Germany's constant bombing raids? Their attention would no long be divided to the East unless constant pockets of resistance was present to risk an overthrow to military occupation.
the thought i had when doing the map was some kind of scenario where there's some kind of cold war between the UK/US Germany and the part of the Soviet Union that isn't occupied, and as you say having occupied so big of a part of the soviet union would of course include fighting resistance pockets in the east
True but Vichy France surrendered on its own to maintain its sovernty and its "old ways." So its more like a Nazi puppet/traitor to the masses of France. I wouldnt know why they would set up puppet goverments, say, the USSR and other slavic nations since by the Nazi doctrine "ayrans", to make sure no one confused the doctrine meant germans, to rule over all "lesser humans." It would be understandable for like Denmark, Hungry(?),etc but I would only think that this way of making states, and apperatuses and "Special bodies", to show to the west , America speaking but then again they sold weapons to both sides of the war up untill 1941, that they were "recontructing Europe" but even then I have doubt the West or allies would care. The "phony war" gives me more reason to distrust the west and the allies , UK,and France, for at the time the Phony war was initated lets be perfectly honest. the Wermarcht and Luffwaffen were now what they were in 1940-1943 plus the French and UK forces could have prevented the war for their forces, at the time, were superior to the Nazis. But I think the "phony war" was an invatation for the Nazis to go east, you know(?), since lets not forget the little mess the Allies did in 1918. But I dont understand why the Nazi doctrine of "ayrans ruling over all, wouldnt be applied in Europe but, instead, puppet goverments like Machu.
