Why WWIII in 1946?

I came across an article on a series of plans that the US Joint Chiefs of Staff put together starting in 1946. The US military, along with most of the US population, believed that the Soviet Union would invade Western Europe at anytime. Yet we still demobilized millions of troops and scrapped thousands of aircraft, tanks and ships.


While exploring this alternate history "what if" I became more and more fascinated by the possibilities of inviting budding authors, artists, gamers and the curious in exploring an alternate history universe where Stalin did what he was expected to do and invaded Western Europe in May 1946.

I would argue that this was the best and only window of opportunity that he had to fulfill his stated desire of a world wide workers paradise. This is one of the greatest "what ifs" of our time.

Usually the timeline is 1945 with Patton initiating the war. In discussing this scenario with various sources it became pretty obvious that this was not the most opportune time to launch an attack. Why not wait until his former allies sent their troops home and before the atomic bomb became user friendly and numerous.

I will explore such musings in later posts.

Soon there will be a website dedicated to stories, novels, graphic novels, videos, flight simulator campaigns, pictures and other computer files related to this alternative universe where the possibility of World War Three in 1946 is explored to it's fullest.

I see this alternate history storyline as the prefect world for a novice story teller to try and show the world just how talented they are. One of my goals is to discover the next great author or artist and to give them a chance to strut there stuff here in WWIII 1946.
