    A Greater Britain

    Just finished this and really liked it. There were a couple of minor typos that I think must have escaped during the proof-reading - e.g. Australian forces being commanded by General Thomas Blarney rather than Blamey. However this did not detract from an excellent story.

    Least favorite alt-history story?

    Perhaps. However the US Target Planners could not assume that. Plus it was not until The Big One was carried out was the true horror of a full strategic strike revealed. A lot of TBO can be read as an anti-war story. Kirk Douglas saying 'to me', while Richard Harris replies 'to you'. :D

    Boom Boom Goes the Tank: A Brief History of the Technothriller

    I've always thought that Red Army was a well written but implausible story. For example the WarPact advances at a rate they'd not manage if NATO was doing traffic control for them.

    2019 Britain ISOT to November 1944?

    I'd want to give the Germans one chance to surrender before we went all TBO on them.

    2019 Britain ISOT to November 1944?

    Perhaps I'm wrong about the Maybot and Corbyn (who is no Foot, who backed the Falklands, btw). I just don't have a lot of faith in contemporary politicians at the moment. Modern helicopters would be horribly vulnerable to the large amounts of light AAA that the Germans possessed. The UK would...

    How many nukes could be PREVENTED from launching in the event of an accidental exchange?

    Depends on whether they have reached the Fail Safe points or not. If SAC's bombers don't recieve a 'Go Code' by the time they reach this point they will return to base (if it is still there).

    2019 Britain ISOT to November 1944?

    Can we please not used 'England' and 'Britain' interchangeably? They are not the same thing. Since I'm being nitpicking there has not been an 'English Army' since 1706 at least. The use of Trident may not be something that the UK can do imediately. After all the boat at sea may not have come...

    Least favorite alt-history story?

    I suppose this would not be the best moment to mention that I wrote some of that story? :D I've always liked Stu's writing, which I think probably puts me in a minority of one here. I've also always been greatful for him giving me a home for TLW.

    Operation Sealion - Widescale deployment of chemical warfare

    CW was very widley used in WW1. You'll note that there is no 'zone rouge' in France. I'm certainly not aware of any long-term damage to French and Belgian territory. From all I've read of our plans it was Mustard that we were planning to spray on beaches. The UK did manufacture other CW...
