This timeline explores as much as possible global history after the Central Powers win the First World War (1914-1918). The Central Powers had key opportunities to win World War I. If coordinated properly or if the code book had been destroyed the German Navy may have broken the British blockade, Mexico may have been able to hold out if they entered the war on the side of the Central Powers or the United States remained neutral, occupied eastern Europe could have sent men to fight as reinforcements or reserves. The revolts in Ireland could have caused the British to pull out. These events as well as others shaped the tide of the war.
I choose to use wikipedia templates and articles as a base for my timeline because not only does this make it easier to catalog everything, but I think it adds a bit extra to the timeline. As this is basically the wikipedia of this world. Now I admit, not all events mentioned throughout this timeline are 100% accurate or possible even if things were different. New insight on the war or the countries are released all the time and it is hard to pin point when a decisive point of divergence could be, so bare with me and enjoy this timeline.
Point of Divergence
In June 1914 the world was ruled by great empires, and the ideals of nationalism and democracy ran wild on the streets of Europe and Russia. But these ideals were strongest in Serbia's desire to create a united south-Slav state. In our timeline these ideals reached a boiling point and finally one of the brutal wars of all time broke out. The war was fought by the Triple Alliance (Central Powers) and the Triple Entente (Allied Powers) between 1914 and 1918. With the war ending in 1918 resulting in the defeat of the Central Powers and the Treaty of Versailles being forced on the losers. Resulting in bitterness and hatred and 20 years later a second world war that was far more terrible than the first.
With the major Entente Powers in agreement, the smaller powers fell in line. An armistice between all the belligerent nations on 6 September 1918. The Lausanne Peace Conference resulted in a treaty that officially ended the war in 1919.
