This "tragedy" causes a power struggle within Germany,Nazis vs The Old Guard Prussian Generals. Eventually the German generals succeed in the power struggle,but only by putting Erwin Rommel as de facto dictator,and by keeping Germany under the Nazi government.
The year long reprieve gives the British some breathing room,but with no USSR to absorb the German's attention
Western Europe has been armed to the hilt in preparation for a Anglo-American counterattack.
Meanwhile in Asia,without Soviet assistance Mao-Zedong's Peoples Militia is destroyed and Chang-Kai-Shek resumes the challenge of sending back the Japanese. The Japanese in response focus all their attention on Mainland China.
Well?What do you think?What does newly instated fuhrer Rommel do?What happens when the Japanese are faced with a fully united China?
