My son and I came up with this scenario where the Ottoman Empire was still around in 1940, but weaker. They lost World War 1 but not as bad as in real life; maybe TE Lawrence got killed too soon to make a difference and the Arabian Revolution failed. The Sultan managed to hold on to power by the skin of his teeth and Ataturk never launched his revolution.
Anyway, here it is:
Special Alternate History Scenario
Background: The Arabian Revolution of 1916 had failed and the Sultanate managed to hold on to power after it’s defeat in World War 1. However, it still lost some of its territory to the United Kindom and France. It is now 1940 and with Britian and France having their hands full dealing with a resurgent Germany and an ambitious Italy, the Empire sees a way to regain its rightful lands and restore its former Glory!
I used Ottoman 1914 Pieces and Axis pieces from HBG painted to match the 1914 pieces. There’s also a Turkey At War expansion that includes most of whet you need.
