First thing’s first: The name sucks, I know, I’ll come up with a better one at some point, just not now.
Secondly, this is a thread about my progress in writing a series of short stories centered around an alternate universe in which the US decides against the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, instead opting for a full scale invasion. Also different in this universe: The Japanese are far better quipped to handle a US invasion of their home islands, including far more fuel and airplanes in better repair, as well as beach fortifications and additional AA support. Additionally, some models of planes or ships that never saw action in the real war will see action here, including the planned Montana class battleship of the United States Navy.
I’m primarily making this thread so I don’t clog up the Writer’s Thread as I’ve been doing. This way, those who are actually interested in these stories can see them, while those who aren’t can choose to avoid them. Win-win.
This is my original post, detailing very rough drafts of the scenarios that will take place. This thread is more so about the progression of these rought drafts into a full blown outline for the story. Additionally, I will occasionally post small excerpts from the stories I write. Blood and gore will be hidden behind spoiler tags, so if you do not wish to see that, please do not click on them (though if you’re adverse to those things I wouldn’t suggest a WW2 story for you anyways). With all that said, here is my first edit of the rough draft for the first story.
