Einstein gets hit by a car and dies. The Manhattan project is shut down for being pointless. Two things that led to the development of the nuclear bomb, cleaned out. Here I will give a brief overview of what happens due to this mistake and tragedy. Also President Roosevelt didn't die. Pacific Theatre: America continues a bloody and costly war with Japan, both sides being so damaged a peace treaty is signed. The Japanese Empire, whil sorely weakened continues on. Japan has to leave China because of the treaty terms and because of the weakness of the Japanese military. This is contested by the government however. China is still being subject to a civil war, however Russia pours in support to communist China (read on to see how). The islands taken by America become independant, but in name only, becoming puppets of America. European Theatre: Russia continues it's advance and defeats Germany. America lacks enough soldiers to continue due to war with Japan, however the allies break through German lines, which are weak due to bad leadership and brittle morale. FDR has Soviet sympathies and does not want to aleniate his ally Stalin, ignoring Churchill's protests, Russia engulfs all of Germany and borders France. Without the war Russia sends support to China and France fortifies in fear of this Red Bear. WW3 looms nearer for the Western allies. However Stalin has no interest (for now) in making his 'empire' bigger. His buffer is truly well set up. Mind that no one has Weapons of Mass Destruction, so a cold war won't happen. No threat of a nuclear war. The period of rivalry between the USSR and America may be a lot hotter... So what do you think? Could happen or not? What will the future bring?
