The World of Red Alert 1 by PaintFan08 The World of Red Alert 1 by PaintFan08
Alright now for a totally ASB map! (Alien Space Bats for those who don't know the lingo) I give you my version of the Red Alert Universe prior to the outbreak of war in the first game. The maps given in the game are inaccurate since they use modern day Europe. This one is based on 1930s-40s world.

For those of you that don't know, Red Alert is a game series made first by Westwood Studios then EA. The first game starts off with Albert Eisenstein traveling back in time and eliminating Hitler. He hopes that this creates a better world without World War II. It horribly backfires, and creates a militant Soviet Union which causes World War II instead.

This map works along the same idea, Hitler and the Nazis don't rise to power in Germany. As a result the moderate Wiemar government or something similar works out. A new European Alliance is formed to deal with the pressures of the Great Depression and then the threat posed by the Soviet Union. Eastern Europe leary of a direct alliance with the French, Germans, and British are only associated. They do not have full membership. The British and French Empires are intact, but beginning to show signs of strain in India, the Middle East and Indo-China (Vietnam).

The Soviet Union under Stalin has conquered the Baltic republics and Finland. He also invaded Mongolia at one point to keep the Japanese in check. I see most of this occurring during the Depression while the US and Allied powers are occupied with their own problems. The NKVD sponsors communist rebels in Eastern Europe and the Colonial Empires.

Japan embarks on its war of conquest per OTL. However the strength of the Soviet Union, and the lack of another major supporter (Nazi Germany) confines them. Prehasp in this TL the government is more moderate. With more of their military freed up they control China's coastline. China itself is a weak and powerless nation blocked by India, Russia, and Japan. They are also being pressured by Mao who receives the support of the USSR.

The United States had stayed isolated. In order to get out of the Depression more work programs and re-armament efforts are launched from 40-45 (when I feel the US enters the war). They are the last to join the alternate WWII. Even though the public wants to stay out of Europe, President Roosevelt then Truman work to keep the US involved.

SMALL EDIT: I learned that Sakhalin Island was split between the Japanese and Soviet Union prior to WWII so this has been corrected.

I think you have missed something, the u.s. japan war, the reason I suggest this is because in RA2 in the allied campaign there is an Iowa Jima monument in D.C., this happens despite there being no pearl harbor as carville mocks the planned soviet surprise attack on pearl harbor

Yeah I know about that. I changed a lot of things up to make things flow and combine the ideas behind all three Red Alert games into one universe with no time travel hijinks. So in this case there is no U.S. Japanese war till the early 1990s.

Probably, when I made the map I hadn't given it much thought. If I ever do a second version I'll most likely change it, thanks for the comments!
