After few painful hours I managed to make this, another alt. history map where US President Roosevelt's plan to divide Germany after WW2 was introduced.
Made with Inkscape.
In terms of IRL, Poland really loses out in this one. Did the Allies still concede to the Soviets here?
Relative to governments, I would predict Prussia to be a staunchly Anti-Communist State, allied with the West. Austria and Saxony are the only two who I could see being Communist.
Overall: Prussia would probably win here, especially with Silesia in their hands. Hesse and Saxony would probably be buffer states between Prussian-Dominated North Germany and Bavarian-Dominated South Germany.
And yes, Poland lost its Eastern territories. The original plan followod the real life Eastern borders but I think either Königsberg or Lublin would have been given to Poland.
Hard to say, would depend a lot on possible occupations and such. If the new German states weren't occupied it would have been just a play between the influences from West and East.
Yup, Prussia got a pretty good deal here. It would have most probably tried to unify with Hannover to gain access to the North Sea, and maybe getting back Rhineland after its international zone status ended. Bavaria, being the other big state in the former Germany, could be standing against full German unification by Prussia, so leaving Saxony and Hesse as buffer states would make a lot of sense.
Do we have any populations for this?
And yeah for Prussia I would expect them to be anti-Communist on the part of being so close to the Warsaw Pact but also because of historical precedents. Who knows, if they had an expansionist leader they may seek to return to pre-1866 borders and then perhaps reunify Germany.
I don't really think that unification could happen militarily without either NATO or Pact intervention. Even peacefully, the neighboring European states might be a little afraid of a reunified and powerful Germany.
Sadly I don't.
Both are very possible. Two, North and South German states would be pretty possible scenario, I'd imagine them developing bit separated identeties, kind of rivalry with each other.
Still an interesting thought, with Hessia,Prussia, Bavaria, Hannover, Saxony and Austria becoming separate nations again.
And BTW, no-one actually helped us then...
Germany will help to you almost from the beginning, after the winter war, in Continuation war during the German troops were always basing with you to defend you from the Soviet Union, while Washinthon was saying that Finland were a danger to the security of the United States and wanted to sell you to the Soviet Union to win his war, not yours war.
The United States had demanded Finland to immediately suspend all aggressive operations in Soviet territory and withdraw its troops behind the 1939 border line case Finland could hold, as in the present and in the future, friendship with the United States . In addition, Finnish operations were classified by the United States of direct threat to U.S. security.
The Finnish Government rejects any compromise that could force suspend military operations and declares, in a categorical manner, which will continue the war until safety is assured of Finland.
The situation in Finland, as neighboring nation of the Soviet Union, requires a constant craving for self-defense against the Soviet conquest. What would be the fate of the Finnish nation itself the people themselves would not have guaranteed your safety? The character of the struggle of Finland does not change at all by the fact that you try to destroy and occupy the enemy attack positions even though they are beyond their borders. Finland wants to finish the fight, but only when the danger is threatening their existence and have created lasting security guarantees.
The Finnish Government can not consider the view that the Finnish military in any way constitute a threat to U.S. security. Finland believes that the small peoples also have the right to life and the right to defense. Finland will continue the war until peace is assured his laborious and can not enter into any agreement that means compromising the security of the country's interests by interrupting military operations that are absolutely justified.
United States response;
For his part, Secretary of State Cordell Hull in Washington has made the following statements to the Media:
"By rejecting the proposal of the United States to explore the Possibility of peace With The Soviet Union, Finland has avoided the real issue at stake. Many Americans do not understand why Finnish forces Make Their contribution to the cause of Hitler."
(The real issue at stake is that the United States donīt care Finland, or their interests, or their citizens. But this is not so for the Europeans and for the European Union) (only the logic and the effort can make us progress. Anyone would be tempted to think of fantastic American heroes immune to bullets illustrated and strong with perfect bronzed, and that he expel out all your problems. But that is only our imagination and Hollywood)
( I hope you appreciate the effort. because, I speak bad English, I had a hard time translating it and took all afternoon collecting information )
"And yeah for Prussia I would expect them to be anti-Communist on the part of being so close to the Warsaw Pact but also because of historical precedents (AKA wars with Russia and absolute monarchy). Who knows, if they had an expansionist leader they may seek to return to pre-1866 borders and then perhaps reunify Germany."
