The Big One RP

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Ryand-Smith on Wed Feb 07, 2007 9:31 pm

June 6, 1947. Europe is being torn apart by a war no one can win. German troops occupy every territory from the Pyrenees to the Volga. In the east, Russian and American troops fight to stop the German advance. In the west, American carriers rule the Atlantic, hurling their midnight-blue fighter-bombers any and all targets they find.

America has one weapon left. One last card to play.

A fleet of the largest bombers the world has ever seen, the atomic weapons to arm them, and a plan to blast Germany out of the war with a single terrible blow,

In a world gone to Hell, the only option left

The Big One

The orginal concept isa writer that I know, Stuart Slade, and the basic timeline is this

1936 Spanish Civil War starts

1937 Japan invades China

1938 Chamberlain declares “Peace in our time� Hitler annexes Austria

1939 Heavy fighting between Japan and Russia. German-Soviet non aggression pact signed, World War Two starts, Poland falls

1940 Eye of Odin Norway invaded & falls to Germany. Churchill becomes UK prime minister. France invaded. Halifax-Butler Coup in UK removes Churchill as UK PM, UK signs armistice. Commonwealth expels UK. Italy attacks France. France signs Armistice. US cancels B-24 and B-32 programs gives B-36 maximum priority. US mobilizes for a war economy.

Noon, June 19th 1940. TBO timeline diverges from @

1941 Thailand invades French Indochina. Germany invades Greece, Germany invades Russia. Invasion bogs down short of Moscow. US heavily reinforces Philippines and Pearl Harbor. Manhattan District started. US seizes Iceland bases. USAAC becomes USAAF. Eighth Air Division becomes Eighth Air Force

1942 New German offensive drives east of Moscow. Moscow falls. Stalin killed, military coup in Russia as Soviet Army ovethrows severely-mauled communist system. Zhukov becomes Russian President. Front stabilizes. Germany demands troops from UK and France for Russian Front. UK and France refuse. UK and France occupied. French fleet scuttled. Royal Navy breaks out and heads for US/Canadian ports. Germans demand return of ships and crews. US refuses, grants RN asylum. Germany declares war on US, sends submarines to attack US shipping off coast. Massacre of shipping. T-shirt invented.

1943 First German submarine campaign defeated. US troops sent to Russia to assist Russian Army as American Expeditionary Force. Air bridge established. US seizes bases in Azores, Greenland. USAAF made independent of Army, becomes additional service on equal footing with Army and Navy.

1944 FUSAGIR (First US Army Group In Russia) formed out of AEF. B-29 raids on Germany from bases in Russia. Abandoned after very heavy casualties. First US carrier strikes against West Europe. FDR dies during election campaign. President Dewey elected. Ballpoint pen invented

1946 Mass production of B-36 bombers and nuclear devices in US. US carrier strikes continue to hammer Western Europe. US invents bikini swimsuit
