Nineteen years have passed since the Great War ended in a costly stalemate for the Central Powers and the Entente. The United States by the strangest of fates avoids direct involvement on the Western Front. However, due to its economic ties with the Allies during the war the country suffered financially. The burden worsened with the cost of a highly controversial and failed intervention into the brutal Russian Civil War following a series of archaist bombings in the States that was blamed on the Soviet revolutionaries.
While recovering for a time during the Roaring Twenties the nation subsequently suffers the disaster of the Great Depression. Taking advantage of the chaos and desperation all around them, radical parties and paramilitary factions swell in greater numbers than ever before. Chief among them is the fascist organization known as the United Nationalist Party of America(UNPA) or Iron Eagles led by their charismatic and ambitious leader Albert Thorne.
Despite making a strong showing in the 1936 presidential election Thorne loses to (Democrat-Republican) coalition candidate Marcus Reynolds. Openly disputing the election results, the Iron Eagles prepare for war. By the spring of 37 it begins.
That’s the general background of the verse I decided on. One where the United States experiences a second civil war that takes place in the late 1930s. To be honest I took some inspiration on that aspect from the plot of the Kaiserreich mod from the Heart of Iron game series. Feel free to ask questions.
The main threat in the possible series is the fascist faction known as the Iron Eagles who are an alternative equivalent to the German Nazis in this scenario.
If interested here is an plot prompt for the verse we could do together. On the latter we can discuss here or make an discord chat for it if requested;
A unit from the US Marine Corps has just returned to the States following overseas service in China. Soon their unit is called up and find themselves fighting against the Iron Eagle forces in the West. Or you can RP someone else gets involved with the unit fighting alongside them against a common threat. Like for example other military branches, law enforcement, national guard, or civilians(man or woman with the latter) and uncover operatives from various countries like the German Empire or the British Commonwealth.
(Think of HBO’s Band of Brothers and the Pacific as a theme for this idea.)
(Between two or five writers can be involved.)
