Germany wins WWII



When Germany would have beaten Russia in the second world war a series of satellite states would have been created. Also the Crimean peninsula would have been colonized by German settlers (from south Tyrol).

  1. Frankly speaking, I would think very improbable a longer existence of a state having Estonia and Lithuania together, after the war...
    As regards the remaining situations shown on the map, many of them don't seem absurd: for instance, Transylvania under Hungary or Karelia under Finland.

  2. Thank you for commenting. I guess the Baltic states would have been colonized by German Landlords. There was a large German presence before WWI, after WWII they would have tried to restore that situation presumably.

  3. Even if this is fictional, and we'll never know the lands east of pre-war Germany's border would have been administrated and their borders shaped: I think it's impossible that the region you call "Burgundy" would have received this name: Burgundy is a region south of Paris. From a historical point of view, if you go back until the time after Charlemagne, you would have called this place "Lotharingia" or "Lothringen" in German.

    1. I guess you're right, although the Low Countries have been administered by the Dukes of Burgundy for a while.
