The Aftermath by Martin23230 The Aftermath by Martin23230
This was a fun map to make.

NOTE: I do not speak French, and so take no responsibility for the accuracy, or lack of, of the Google-translated French text in this image

It was based on this map of the Occupation Zones of Germany, I decided I wanted to attempt to copy the same style. I turned the occupation on its head, and divided France between its neighbouring countries. I have no idea how this came to happen, I just wanted to try the style. I think it looks rather good.

Let's say the Central Powers won World War I and in the process A stronger Germany came out the ordeal but Britain did not enter the war and so France was defeated in process France became weaker in the process having a government similar to the Wiemar republic in the process of forming a group of right wing fascists similar to the Nazis in the process of creating the potential of Revolution in France for many factions and the great depression hits and in the process collapse of the monarchy in Germany creating a republic in Germany but with the Monarch as a figurehead and with a fascist friends but coming expansion Mystic and the weaker Germany they did what Napoleon did an expanded at first they wanted the Rhineland black known really minded except for Germany over a period of time the Rhine lands were returned to France then they turn their eyes to Italy and Switzerland France had Fredon Italy and said and that the Italian government was persecuting the French people nearby the Territory provenance alpes Côte d'Azur in the process France demanded part of northern France but France kept pushing and demanded more so they Fretton to invade Italy if they don't give them a new all of northern Italy sadly the Italian government a picture elated and in the process curry did a puppet state of the southern half of Italy at this point countries are starting to get A nervous of France a couple years later and they invade Switzerland and kicking off World War II and this picture came along The more you know 🎆.

Occupations zones in France? Now there's an idea! How many countries would result from such a situation? One, two, or three?

Perhaps post WW1 a fascist government arose in France instead of Germany. War would break out with France invading Germany/Belgium, and ends with occupation. Spanish civil war averted because the letter was never sent and fascism not arising in Germany because of a stronger Wiemar republic

A very god idea and done even better! I would have two Ideas if I may? I would think that England would be desperate for Gascone/Aquitane since they historically owned them and give something to Luxembourg, they deserve more land :D And no. 2, I'm not sure that Switzerland ,being neutral and all that, would have an occupation zone?

I like this map a lot, but there are two minor things, because I think some countries would also annex parts, such as spain would annex Pyrenees-Orientals (Roussillon, French-Catalonia), Italy would annex the area around Nice and Germany would likely annex Alsache-Lorraine (partially). It would have been cool if you had shown that. :)

And I also think Belgium should get Pas-de-Calais, and maybe the region around Amiens, as it belonged to them in history for a long time. And how about poor little Luxembourg:? I would grant them some land, too. ;)

But over all, great map, I love it! :nod:

Sometime later, the British sector and most of the German sector (the Germans annexed Alsace-Lorraine, while the Belgians and the Swiss annexed their occupation sectors) formed the French Republic - North France, with capital being North Paris, while the Spanish and Italian sectors formed the French State - South France, with the capital being Vichy (not surprising).

Hey great, awesome map! I love the style, how did u do it?

I think the neighbours would also annex some regions, will you continue it with part 2?^^

I think Germany would get some parts bordering Elsass-Lothringen and maybe occupy at the same time Luxemburg, maybe even unite with Austria, I don´t know what happened before the war.

Switzerland is usually neutral, I don´t think they would conquer anything.

Belgium would conquer that territory on your map surely completely.

Britain would maybe want the Normandy.

Spain would get some parts along the Pyrinäen I think.

And Italy would want at least Corsika and that part south of Switzerland,
I think it´s Savoyen, is that right? Idk XD

France seems to have stayed a bit too unified, considering how all the bordering countries had some recent or agelong claim on French land. Would you be interested on going a map carving up France or showing the partition of their possessions in northern Africa?

:iconmartin23230:
Martin23230 Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2011
Actually I did make a few MS paint maps playing around with the idea of what would happen next.
Basically:
#The UK split of Brittany and Normandy into crown dependencies, the rest of their sector was rejoined with the German sector minus Alsace to form the Republic of France.
#After referendums both the Belgian and Swiss sectors voted to join their respective countries, but the Flemish and Swiss Germans weren't particularly happy with that, so they are both de-facto independent but run jointly between the RoF and the other nation.
#Down south Italy annexed Corsica, Nice and some odd bits on the border, Spain did the same with the Northern Basque Country and some bits in the Pyrenees, the rest was joined into the State of Occitania.
I didn't go into the colonies much...

TomBombardier Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2011
I would certainly be willing to give my two cents on the colonies if you would continue to expand this. Could you post your other maps, even if just in scraps? And very good with Normandy, the Channel Islands were basically the remains of that.

Roosevelt planned on getting hegemony over Indochina at the least. Outside of supporti Liberia with miscellanious claims, I doubt that they would have wanted anything in Africa or the unprofitable islands.

:iconmartin23230:
Martin23230 Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2011
True, but remember these are occupying zones not annexations (yet..). The US would be the logical ones to occupy these zones if necessary, but they would almost certainly be preparing them for independence rather than annexation.

Also, remember French Guiana is in South America, not Africa ;).
