Alt. Cold War Europe Political by Muzik-Maniac Alt. Cold War Europe Political by Muzik-Maniac
This is a Political/Economic Alliance map 20 years after this one:
[link]

Well, At the moment I don't have the attention span to write a story seeing as how its only a 21 Year jump (but i will try and draft something detailed up later) but here are the major divergences:

-Malta is officially incorporated into Britain as a Mediterranean
Province.

-In response to Both the Formation of NATO and the Warsaw Pact, several neutral nations found a non-aligned bloc in order to maintain steadfast neutrality between the growing powers, as well as their own border integrity.

-Lithuania had taken advantage of the Chaos Brought about by the "War of Sovereignty" and formally joined the Fledgling NATO allowing it to retain its independence from the Soviet Union. (To much Outrage on the Part of Stalin)

-Due to continuing ethnic tensions within the warsaw pact nations, the treaty of Konigsberg was expanded in March 25th, 1955 (a random Date and will be adjusted in the future) to encompass all major minority communities within member states. This was seen as a temporary fix in some cases.

*Note: Luxembourg is A member of the European Union
*Note: Far Western Ukraine (3.) Is supposed to be under Ukrainian. Just realized my mistake there.

Like i said before, i will draft up something more orderly in the future for sure just because i have some time constraints at the moment xP

If you have any questions feel free to ask! :)

Cool map. I particularity like the Eastern German borders, which i guess are the most noticeable. :o

During Communist rule in Eastern Europe, minor ethnic groups wouldn't even dare to start a revolt (at least in Romania), due to the, well, hell they would've recieved afterwards. Just saying, it would have been highly unlikely for Warsaw Pact governments to create autonomous regions without an inner change of some kind.

How come you gave autonomous regions to the Hungarians in Romania/Transylvania, but not in Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia?
Btw, I so much prefer you map than what really happened! ;)

Thankfully, Prussia was not destroyed by the Allied Nations in that world. I wish Germany was allowed to keep Prussia in our world.

Great map, but after 1948 when Tito and Stalin had an argument, Yugoslavia was not part of the Warsaw pact.

I love this. Glad to see Germany didn't get as screwed as it did OTL and I love that Lithuania is free of Soviet control though I'd imagine that NATO has a large presence there.
