TL-191 Fatherland by Zauberfloete21 TL-191 Fatherland by Zauberfloete21
TL-191 FATHERLAND

An alternate timeline where the Confederate States under Jake Featherston won the Second Great War and the Confederate States now dominates the American continents.
It is April 1964 and one week before Jake Featherston's 75th birthday, Carver March, a detective of the Virginia State Police, is called out to investigate the discovery of a dead body in a lake near Richmond's most prestigious suburb.
As March discovers the identity of the body, he uncovers signs of a conspiracy that could go to the very top of the Confederate States. And, with the Freedom Party Stalwarts just one step behind, March, together with a German journalist, is caught up in a race to discover and reveal the truth - a truth that has already killed, a truth that could topple governments, a truth that will change history.

“Whether you like it or not, history is on our side. We will dig you in.” - Remark by Jake Featherston to European ambassadors during a diplomatic reception in Richmond - November 18th 1956

“Mr. President, call the toady of German imperialism to order.” – Featherston remark in the League of Nations General Assembly, denouncing a speech by Ghana Mandate delegate Kwame Nkrumah - October 12th 1960.

“A shadow has fallen upon the scenes so lately lighted by the Central Powers victory. Nobody knows what the Confederates States and its Racist international organization intends to do in the immediate future, or what are the limits, if any, to their expansive and proselytizing tendencies... It is my duty however, for I am sure you would wish me to state the facts as I see them to you, to place before you certain facts about the present position in the Americas.

From Newfoundland on the North Atlantic to Buenos Aires in South America, an iron curtain has descended across both Continents. Behind that line lie all the capitals of the New World states of North and South America. Philadelphia, Ottawa, Quebec, Mexico City, Bogota, Buenos Aires, Santiago, Montevideo, Asunción, Port-Au-Prince, Santo Domingo, Guatemala, San Salvador, Tegucigalpa, Managua and San Jose, all these famous cities and the populations around them lie in what I must call the Confederate sphere, and all are subject in one form or another, not only to Confederate influence but to a very high and, in many cases, increasing measure of control from Richmond. Caracas alone — Venezuela with its immortal glories — is free to decide its future at an election under German and Austro-Hungarian observation.
The Confederate-dominated Canadian Government has been encouraged to make enormous and wrongful inroads upon the United States, and mass expulsions of millions of American on a scale grievous and undreamed-of are now taking place.
The Freedom parties, which were very small in all these States of the Americas, have been raised to pre-eminence and power far beyond their numbers and are seeking everywhere to obtain totalitarian control. Police governments are prevailing in nearly every case, and so far, except in Columbia, there is no true democracy. Brazil, Bolivia, Ecuador and Peru are all profoundly alarmed and disturbed at the claims which are being made upon them and at the pressure being exerted by the Richmond Government. An attempt is being made by the Confederate in Philadelphia to build up a quasi-Freedom party in the occupied United States by showing special favors to groups of right-wing US leaders…” – Speech by Reichskanzler Theodor Duesterberg – March 5th , 1946

“I would say to the leaders of the Confederate States, and to their people, that if either of our countries is to be fully secure, we need a much better weapon than the H-bomb--a weapon better than ballistic missiles or nuclear submarines--and that better weapon is peaceful cooperation.” - Speech before the European League by Reichskanzler Franz von Papen – September 20th, 1963

Note: I edited the Russian part a bit.

So in the TL-191 version of "Fatherland", the great secret is going to be that the CSA genocided its black population. Nice analogy there.

So how is Japanese Hawaii?

The Mormons?

Any big names that got out of the US when it fell?

What will Canada after the truth is found, and the CSA goes to total hell?

Except the thing is, the Confederacy could never win the Second Great War. They could knock the wind out of the US for a little while, but they could never win. I would rather see the Germans as actually having a chance of losing the war. It's because of these points that I ask: a) what's the point of divergence? and b) how did the war progress in this timeline?

I deliberatly left the Pod vage, but since this scenario is based on Robert Harris Fatherland I guess the divergence would be the Battle for Pittsburgh. Still I guess the war would drag on for a couple of years, with the Confederates being very lucky and ultimatly emerging victorious in America. Germany meanwhile would win in Europe as this TL "Pacific Theater".

As well, I don't think the Confederates would have the ability to occupy the US.

if you take requests, do you think you might be able to do "in the presence of mine enemies" in TL 191?

Very nice, it must be a horribly depressing world though, with the CSA still a fascist state, France too broken to export its fashions and culture and the horrors of Unit 731 still going strong in Harbin (considering TL-191 still sued poison gas a lot of the Unit 731 project would be likely to still happen or even get a big upgrade)

So, in this Timeline first the CSA won the civil war and then Germany and its allies wins both world wars? Interesting concept
