Back In The USSA by QuantumBranching Back In The USSA by QuantumBranching
A map of Kim Newman and Eugene Byrne's "Back in the USSA" [1], in which the far right takes control of the US after Teddy Roosevelt's 1905 assassination, and then enters WWI in search of a "glorious little war" without bothering to make the financial sacrifices necessary to properly equip its army, leading to a revolution in 1917. In Europe a compromise peace is patched up between the powers, in the face of the new Red Menace across the Atlantic: but a WWII still happens between Germany and (White, not Commie) Russia plus the UK, between the USSA and Japan...

(I have removed a few of the sillier elements of the scenario, since it is a fairly silly book.  I may do a 2013 followup if people like it).

The USSA eventually declares war on Germany when it looks likely the Germans will lose, so they can get a finger or two in the European pie...

Waittttttt. Germany and Japan versus White Russia/the UK with the USSA as a non-aligned co-belligerent fighting Japan?

Heh. He could still be from Kansas. Will Ma and Pa Kent oversee the collective farm?

I also feel a 2013 version would be good.

Could Gorge H.W. Bush or Dick Cheney make good Putin stand ins?

I wonder who Putin will be in your version (I can't really see Bill Clinton being the Putin analogue)

Definitely  not Clinton: the original book includes several pop-culture imaginary characters running around, so I'm still deciding whether to go with actual historical figures or to look to recent fiction for a sufficiently Magnificent Bastard.

It'd be a good opportunity to explore the premise further.

This was the book that first got my into Alternate History all those years ago, so I'm utterly in love with this map. I'd love to see a 2013 follow-up.

 

In short, brilliant work as always :D
