  1. You know, I'm not sure what is entirely not allowed and what is, and if this is okay, and if this is the right place to put it, but I'll do my best. Also, before I continue, I'd like to say that I'd also appreciate a Christian view on the world after WW2. What events changed Christianity and it's influence in the world as a result of WW2? What differences in nations and politics could have changed the christian world? As we know, the world we live in echoes the past we used to know. World War Two was the most brutal and catastrophic war, and was the only war, where the final sacrifice was to use 'cruel bombs'. I of course mean the nuclear bomb dropped on Japan, and in response to those bombs, the Emperor said... "Moreover, the enemy has begun to employ a new and most cruel bomb, the power of which to do damage is, indeed, incalculable, taking the toll of many innocent lives. Should we continue to fight, not only would it result in an ultimate collapse and obliteration of the Japanese nation, but also it would lead to the total extinction of human civilization." So, to put it simply, war changed a lot, and it was bad. War however was inevitable, and many were going on at the time, and it was simply the way things were done in the past, and perhaps, the way things are still done unfortunately. On the side of the Axis was Nazi Germany, the Empire of Japan, and the Kingdom of Italy as the main three, but in 1940 the Tripartite Act expanded this to include the Kingdom of Hungary, Kingdom of Romania, Slovak Republic, Kingdom of Bulgaria, and the Independent State of Croatia. On the side of the Allies, was the Soviet Union, United States, United Kingdom, and China mainly, but also many others including Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Ethiopia, Brazil, Mexico and the Philippines. This does not include however, neutral states who were against the Axis, and exiled combatants who had their countries conquered. This war saw almost the entirety of the world fighting together against common enemies. My questions are as follows... 1. What if a fascist nation, let's say Italy under Mussolini, for this example, joined the Allies under terms that Italy would get to keep claims on lands like Yugoslavia or Ethiopia? 2. What if the attack on Pearl Harbor never happened, and the U.S. and many others never joined the war? 3. What if Poland was supported in it's defense against Nazi Germany by France and the Allies more immediately? Or, for that matter, what if the Soviet Union sided with theolish in their defense against an ideological enemy? 4. Suppose the battered and broken Allies and Axis had tired each other out to a large degree, but Italy was a neutral state, and stepped in after most of the wars were over to start conquering land? What if Italy under Mussolini conquered Europe, and eventually the world? This kind of theory is really often used by "What if the Axis won the war" or "What if Hitler ruled the world" scenarios, where it describes the brutal and harsh aftermath.. So, it's basically that, but only Italy. Mussolini apparently wanted to reform the Roman Empire. How would that even look? If you have any other theories about switching sides and whatnot, that'd be cool to hear about too. Anyways, those are just my ideas. I personally don't expect many to really answer to this, but, might as well jot down some interesting thoughts. Thanks for reading!

    The Battlefield

    My short story As he stormed the battlefield, the thought crossed his mind once more today. "Will I die?" He feared for his life, and for the lives of his brethren. Being in this was not at all what he wanted... But he knew he had to go. He knew he had to fight for the good of his people, and of himself. His two children and wife cried tremendously when he was sent off, not knowing if they would ever see him again. "Remember to have courage and stay strong." He had heard those words every day for an entire week before he left. Those words rang through his ears evermore now, as the gunfire rang out in the air. The ground shook violently, but it didn't shake our hero. He stood there, lightly shaking in fear. He picked up his gun and aimed it, right in front of him. The man north of him looked at the gun. Our hero knew that he was just as scared. He knew he had to do it. For the good of his country, his brethren... 5 shots were heard. The man dropped down on the cold ground, unconscious. The other men took charge soon after that, firing away without care at the brave men that stood in front of them. Our hero and his comrades also attacked, more fierce this time. After the fire ceased, he slowly got up from where he was and looked around. Smoke was all he could see. Smoke and blood. The blood of hundreds of brave men, who equally fought just as hard. Fought for the good of their people, and of themselves.
