15th of November, 1939

| The record player in the corner would be playing quietly in the corner of the room. Gloria would be sitting by her newly born baby, little girl who has been named Angelique. Smiling for a moment, she would look out from the window for a moment. Breathing slowly, she would look back at Angelique and smile softly again. Sitting in an armchair would be Ferreira. The colonel from Estado Novo who had now become rather close friends with Gloria. Sitting around would also be Alexander De Mutte, a close friend and personal photographer of Gloria. De Mutte would sigh loudly, making Gloria look up slightly. |

    [ Gloria ]: "I know what you want to say, Alex."

    [ Alexander ]: "Good. Maybe you ought to act upon it then."

    [ Gloria ]: "He's my husband. I love him."

    [ Alexander ]: "He doesn't care about you. Not one ounce, Gloria."

| Gloria would look at her baby, biting her lips slightly shaking her head slightly. |

    [ Alexander ]: "You got him into power. You're his beautiful shoulder wife for the world to see. And you give him a kid, an heir to his family name. You've done your duty. He's over you."

    [ Gloria ]: "Why do you say those awful things to me?"

    [ Alexander ]: "Because they are true, Gloria. The man has another woman on the side. And you know that."

| Sighing loudly, Gloria would turn around. |

    [ Gloria ]: "When I got pregnant, he believed that he needs to satisfy his urges elsewhere. What can I do when that happens?"

    [ Alexander ]: "For the Love of Christ! Get over yourself, Gloria. Get the confidence you have when you talk to the public. Unless you want to end up as a baby incubator for the rest of your life!"

| Ferreira would cough up slightly, granting himself their attention. Gloria would turn her gaze at him. |

    [ Ferreira ]: "I do not want to intrude on marriage disputes---"

    [ Gloria ]: "No! Please do! Seems that it's pretty easy!"

| Gloria would get up and turn towards the window. |

    [ Ferreira ]: "As I said, I don't want to intrude on marriage problems. But, I have to speak up when I see potential being wasted. Gloria, you have that potential. And your husband, is simply inadequate to you. Furthermore, he is a danger to you. He's a Communist."

| Alexander would look at Ferreira, rather shocked. Gloria would raise her head slightly. |

    [ Ferreira ]: "The Queen adores you. The people adore you. He's the only obstacle that stands in your way."

    [ Gloria ]: "In my way? To do what exactly?"

    [ Ferreira ]: "To get power over Congo, Gloria."

| With rage taking over her, she would tighten her fists. |

    [ Gloria ]: "For a millionth time! I do not want power. I do not need it!"

| Suddenly the baby would start to cry. Gloria would pick her up baby and start to calm her down. Ferreira would get up. |

    [ Ferreira ]: "You must be naive to think that Belgium, that the Queen, that any Western power around Congo will allow your husband to live once it's official or once there is enough evidence that he is a communist. But they won't come just for him, but for you too. And your baby. Because ultimately, they will link you, with him. You'll be part of the problem that needs removed. For good."

| Gloria would look at him rather scared. Looking at her baby for a moment, she would look at Alexander before looking back at Ferreira. |

    [ Gloria ]: "What would I have to do, to get him out?"

    [ Alexander ]: "And become the leader yourself, Gloria."

| Gloria would look out the window for a moment. Alexander and Ferreira would smirk at each other slightly. |

CUT TO

| FIRST REPRESENTATIVE OF CONGO BUILDING
Leopoldville, Congo
|

17th of November, 1939

| A large map of Congo is hanging on the wall. There are little pinpoints all around it. Sitting by the circular table is Andrei Novachkov, a forty-two year old Soviet citizen, officially. Unofficially, a Soviet communist spy in Congo. Novachkov gained a close relationship with Pascal since late June. Ever since, Pascal and Novachkov had close contact growing between them, with Pascal growing far more interested in the idea of communism and a people's revolution taking place in Congo. Novachkov was instructed with one main mission, make sure that Pascal Banza starts a communist revolution within Congo. Pascal would pass Novachkov a glass of whiskey, before looking at the map himself. |

    [ Pascal ]: "I've been thinking a lot recently. And I begin to worry."

    [ Novachkov ]: "Worry is a quick defeat of an idea. What is it that's bothering you?"

    [ Pascal ]: "My wife. Her views on communism are strict, and she herself...I would want her to be involved, to know what is bound to happen, how big of a step we are taking. I love her."

| Novachkov would look at him for a moment. |

    [ Novachkov ]: "It's good that you love your wife. But an enemy of a state, is an enemy of a state. An enemy of a revolution, is an enemy of a revolution. Love and politics don't come hand in hand. One of you have to step down from public life, and to shut up. We both know who."

| Pascal would look at him. |

    [ Pascal ]: "Maybe we could change her mind? If she met you?"

    [ Novachkov ]: "No. I don't think so. I'm not here to change her mind. I'm here to help you, so that you can help your people. She will need to get in line or be put in line, once you achieve your goals. And look at this map."

    [ Pascal ]: "About that. The head of Force Publique is having...second thoughts. He doesn't want to risk his men."

| Novachkov would laugh slightly. |

    [ Novachkov ]: "Do you want to live in a better state? Do you really want to advance your people?"

    [ Pascal ]: "Of course."

    [ Novachkov ]: "Then you will make sure that the bloody Minister of your Force Publique does as he's told. That Belgian Queen has done a massive favour to you. All Belgian government officials, that could act, that could stop you due to their positions, their connections...are all imprisoned, all around Congo, the vast Congo. Nothing is stopping you. The Queen has to die, the old regime has to die in order for a new birth of Congo!"

| Pascal would nod slowly before fully agreeing. Novachkov would down his glass and smirk slightly. Standing behind the door, listening to it all would be Gloria, with a hot dinner in her arms. Looking up with dread on her face she would put on a slight smile before knocking twice, and going in. |

| THE QUEENS' MANSION
Leopoldville, Congo

19th of November, 1939

| The Queen would be sitting on her large balcony. Sipping her cold brew, she would be smiling softly at the Banza's baby that was neatly placed in her pram. With confidence and pride on her face, the Queen would turn towards Gloria. As the Queen gleamed with confidence and pride, Gloria would inside be dreading. She had a major life choice to make, probably the biggest so far in her life. Does she choose politics, that she so quickly and actively is getting herself involved in, choosing what she believes to be the future of her child. Or, does she choose love. Passionate, complicated yet sincere love for the man she had married, Pascal Banza. The man that is the father to her child. It was like a choice from hell, a choice she would have to make. |

    [ Queen Elisabeth ]: "She really has your eyes, bless her soul."

    [ Gloria ]: "That's what Pascal says as well, Your Majesty."

    [ Queen Elisabeth ]: "Yes, well he is not lying. Beautiful baby, the hope of Congo. It's what I deemed it as in the Belgian press."

    [ Gloria ]: "I heard, Your Majesty. Very flattering words."

| The Queen would smile before looking at Gloria who would begin to wonder with her eyes. |

    [ Queen Elisabeth ]: "There is a matter of some sort, what is it?"

    [ Gloria ]: "A matter?"

    [ Queen Elisabeth ]: "I'm old, darling. I don't have all day, so do tell this old woman. What is the matter?"

| Gloria would look at the Queen and as she began to look for some air, she would take a large sip of her brew. Placing the cup down, she would look at the Queen with dread in her eyes. |

    [ Queen Elisabeth ]: "Gloria. As your Queen, I ask you to speak. What is the matter?"

    [ Gloria ]: "It's about...Your Majesty..."

| Gloria would look at the Queen, before closing her eyes and breathing out the words. |

    [ Gloria ]: "You are in danger. I believe that the communists want to depose you. For good."

    [ Queen Elisabeth ]: "Darling, there are no communists in Congo. Bless."

    [ Gloria ]: "My husband...I mean Pascal...Pascal is. Is one."

| Looking at Gloria in utter shock, the Queen would rise up slowly. |

    [ Queen Elisabeth ]: "Are you certain of that?"

    [ Gloria ]: "I'm afraid so. Your Majesty. But please! He doesn't know what he's doing. Please, do not hurt him."

    [ Queen Elisabeth ]: "So the rumours are true...he is...that's horrendous!"

    [ Gloria ]: "Please, Your Majesty. Do not harm him!"

    [ Queen Elisabeth ]: "Does anyone else know?"

    [ Gloria ]: "Some of his colleagues, the head of the Force Publique."

| The Queen would freeze before taking a seat. |

    [ Queen Elisabeth ]: "You give them a finger, they chop your arm off. This is disastrous. If anyone finds out, or worse if he succeeds in his activity...the notion of Congo's independence will be over. Quickly. The Belgian government will have its cause, the West will unite around it and that will be it. Split between the French, the Portuguese and the Belgian. We cannot let that happen Gloria. We cannot. We cannot let him succeed, we cannot let anyone know who he really supports...at all cost."

| Gloria would look at her for a moment. |

    [ Queen Elisabeth ]: "You need to remove him. Before it's too late. You have to, Gloria. If you want to see your daughter in a free country."

| The Queen would look with hope towards her. Gloria would freeze in absolute shock. |

Mahatma Gandhi Begin Fasting Campaign In Bombay, Hundreds Of Thousands Protest Autocratic Rule!

As announced late last year after Mahatma Gandhi has successfully recovered from a series of major demonstrations, where he and thousands of his followers had underwent a week of fasting to protest the continuous working conditions in regards to Indian as well as Muslims and other minority groups within the Raj. Has begun a new series of demonstrations in Bombay, where over one hundred thousand or more people have gathered to begin fasting, as Gandhi setting his eyes of the autocratic rule not just directed at the British rule, but at the Caste system. Which has been a part of many kingdoms and empires that have ruled over India both politically, culturally, socially for thousands of years.

Despite the mixed responses to Gandhi's target of the Indian Caste system, hundreds of thousands have gathered in Bombay to show their support for the ever growing popular civil rights leader. Who was once proponent of the Caste system, but has since denounced it as a strain on the hundreds of millions who inhabit the Raj and before. When asked why he is targeting both systems, Gandhi had stressed that the Caste system has had its place in the lives of Indians before and during British rule of the Indian subcontinent. However if India is to progress forward into the 20th century and beyond, it is a matter of importance that the rights and freedoms of Indians and others who live here to be able to progress forward based on their own merits. The Caste system according to Gandhi, completely disregards it and considers it to be incompatible with modern democracy.

The demonstrations in Bombay according to Gandhi, serves as a stepping stone as to what happens to many people from various groups within the thousands of year old Caste system can show when they work together. With many individuals and families from all waking aspects of life, participating in the weeks long fasting. Marking what many in India consider to be a turning point not just for the development of a potential fully Independent India, but a complete change in how the cultural and society groups within the country dictate their lives. With the Caste system, the lives of millions of people were stagnated with no real promise of progress. Despite additionally harsh criticisms, a new movement had according to local sources had started all thanks to Gandhi, who is not only trying to progress the Geopolitical landscape of the Indian subcontinent, but the social landscape within India. In Gandhi's word's "Be the change, that you wish to see in the world."

      Empire of Greater Korea

        To Trust a Brother or Not

      | Emperor Yi Geon was regarded by the Japanese as the perfect ruler of Korea, not only did his Japanese upbringing make him identify more with Japanese culture and social norms, his choice of a Japanese wife secured the throne squarely for the future of Japan. However his younger brother and current heir apparent (as his own son had not reached the age threshold to be declared Crown Prince) was somewhat of an unknown factor for the Japanese and even the Emperor himself. |

      | Yi U was born in 1912 after Japan’s official annexation and had been shipped off to Japan for educational purposes; however unlike his brother he retained a deep connection to his Korea routes and routinely refused to give it up, much to the dismay of other ‘collaborators’. In 1935 after much arguing back and forth Yi U even married a Korean noblewoman by the name of Lady Park Chan-ju. Therefore his position as Crown Prince was a great concern to the Japanese Government back in Tokyo as well as the Korean Government that had been stuffed full of collaborators. |

      | Emperor Geon had ordered the Interior Ministry to keep a close eye on his younger brother after their father had successfully escaped Japanese grasp and popped up as a leading figure within the self-declared Korean Provisional Government in China. Many within senior circles suspected that Yi U was working with the KPG as an informant. Although Yi Geon doubted such accusations he kept important government decisions away from his younger brother and requested he be transferred to a more administrative role within the Imperial Japanese Army. |

      | Crown Prince Yi U wasn’t stupid; he knew that he was being pushed away due to his refusal to renounce his Korean identity as well as his fathers’ involvement with the KPG, he refused to engage with it negatively, knowing it would only affect his standing within the Japanese controlled administration. Being in a position to influence however small would benefit him in the long-run, believing he would be seen as the insider if Korea ever gained its freedom making him the most suitable choice to succeed his father if he regained the throne. |

NEW ECONOMICS OF ALBANIA

With the occupation and installation of a new government in Albania,the economy of both Albania and Italy would become connected via a custom union that would remove most if not all trade restrictions.Through a tariff union the Italian tariff system would replace the Albanian tariff system but with the switch in the tariff system expected economic losses would occur but the Italian government were prepared for such an occasion with them providing 15 million Albanian leks each year in compensation for the economic losses.The Italian capital was allowed to dominate the Albanian economy and as a result most Italian companies were allowed to hold monopolies in the exploitation of Albanian natural resources.

THE WINTER WAR:
A WAR FOR THE SAFETY OF THE UNION NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER!
ЗИМНЯЯ ВОЙНА:
ВОЙНА ЗА БЕЗОПАСНОСТЬ СОЮЗА НОЯБРЬ И ДЕКАБРЬ!

Negotiations have stalled as a amicable peace now seems to be off the table between Finland and the Soviets, Red Army forces have been moved into the north from Karelia to Leningrad Soviet soldiers wait for orders to push into Finland to secure a stable border able to provide defensive abilities to the Red Army for the defense of Leningrad. Comrade Stalin is now itching for a call to begin the liberation of needed territory, what is to be that call?

SHELLING OF MAINILA:
60° 15' 4.80" N 29° 51' 7.19" E STRUCK BY FINNISH FORCES CLAIMS SOVIET RED ARMY!
ОБСТРЕЛ МАЙНИЛЫ:
60° 15' 4.80" N 29° 51' 7.19" E УДАР ФИНЛЯНСКИМИ ВОЙСКАМИ ТРЕБУЕТ СОВЕТСКОЙ КРАСНОЙ АРМИИ!

The village of Mainila was an obscure one sitting on the Finnish border near Beloostrov when it was reported seven shells were fired into Mainilla from the Finnish side. This seemed to be enough as Soviet Officials declared this to be a attack on the Soviet Union conducted by Finnish Artillery Units in the region and Comrade Stalin would renounce the Soviet–Finnish Non-Aggression Pact and the call to action would be heard across the Northern USSR!

FORCES TO ENTER INTO FINNISH TERRITORY:
ON THE BORDER AND READY TO MOVE INTO FINNISH TERRITORY!
СИЛЫ ДЛЯ ВХОДА НА ТЕРРИТОРИЮ ФИНЛЯНДИИ:
НА ГРАНИЦЕ И ГОТОВЫ ПЕРЕЕЗЖАТЬ НА ТЕРРИТОРИЮ ФИНЛЯНДИИ!

- Seventh Army [Nine Divisions, Tank Corps, andThree Tank Brigades]: Karelian Isthmus and target of Viipuri.
- Eighth Army [Six Divisions and a Tank Brigade]: North of Ladoge flank Finnish Mannerheim from the rear.
- Ninth Army [Three Divisions]: Move into the Kainuu Region and push west to cut off Finland.
- Fourteenth Army [Three Divisions]: Based in Murmansk take the Arctic region of Finland, especially the port town of Petsamo and then strike towards Rovaniemi.
- 3.000 Aircraft

Finnish forces would be estimated by Soviet Officials as 320.000 Soldiers, 30 Tanks, and 100 Aircraft in the region for the immediate face of defense to a Soviet movement into the Finnish State.

FIRST PUSHES INTO THE FINNISH STATE:
BATTLES AND THE BOMBING OF HELSINKI BEGIN AS THE WINTER WAR OFFICIALLY BEGINS!
ПЕРВЫЕ ПРОТЯЖКИ В ФИНСКОЕ ГОСУДАРСТВО:
СРАЖЕНИЯ И БОМБАРДИРОВАНИЕ ХЕЛЬСИНКИ НАЧИНАЮТСЯ КАК ОФИЦИАЛЬНО НАЧАЛА ЗИМНЯЯ ВОЙНА!

250.000 Soviets and 130.000 Finns would face off on the Karelian Isthmus, the deep snow would soon be red as Soviets pushed towards the Mannerheim line fighting Finnish units deployed in front of the line to delay Soviet strikes directly onto the lines. Helsinki would be rocked as 25 Soviet aircraft would take the skies of the city and begin to hammer it with bombs leading to the death of Finns and damage to industrial areas of the city. By December 6th the Finnish force would be pushed to the Mannerheim Line making the true conflict begin as the battle for the Mannerheim Line would begin in Taipale [Solovyovo]. The Battle of Taipale would end in disastrous terms for the Red Army like many of the ongoing battles across the Mannerheim Line with large Soviet Formations break down to smaller Finn forces with the only help being the Finns wariness of dealing with Soviet Tanks from afar this advantage would soon be lose as untrained officers of the Union would favor head on assaults by the tank leaving them vulnerable to Finn Anti-Tank infantry movements with out Soviet Infantry protection. The begin of this conflict has proved disastrous to Soviet Command as Soviet Officer inexperience has become painfully obvious to both sides. By the end of December Small intrusions into Finn territory would be sustained, but only by the fact of the superiority of manpower on the Soviet side with casualties already coming back to Soviet command in the hundreds of thousand many suffering more from illness than dying to Finnish fire although not that high of difference between the two. The Soviet Command was angered by the turn of event happening in the Finnish countrysides as Air superiority allowed Soviet bombardment of Finnish Cities while also dogfighting with the smaller Finnish Airforce.

NATIONALIST GUERRILLA UNITS FORM IN THE EAST

| December, 1939 |

With the civil war dragging on for well over a year, the government in Ankara has ceaselessly attempted to reach out to villages in the countryside in an attempt to bolster Nationalist forces to continue the war effort, in spite of lack of supply along the front, especially in the mountainous regions. Reinstated Prime Minister Ismet Inonu had sent out a radio broadcast just recently calling on the rural villages to take up arms against the Soviet invaders, and to report any information on Soviet troop movements directly to their local garrisons.

In response to the message from Inonu, many villages found new life in the face of even food shortages and basic necessities. It was also reported that Soviet troops along the front had been raiding farms for food and other goods, along with the reports of many men being murdered in cold blood, and women being raped by Soviet and Kars Konsey forces. This coming from the log of a Lieutenant Alparslan Türkeş, who had liberated a farm outside of Mercan along with his squad who’ve become known as the Gray Wolves, due to their ferocity and resilience in fighting in hostile terrain and in rough weather conditions, as well as due to their gray coats that are typical of their regiment.

Along with this squad, many others have started smaller scale attacks along the front line, mostly liberating smaller villages, with the larger battalions sitting deeper and taking on a more supportive role in resource distribution and shelling of enemy positions to make way for the inroads that hope to break the lines and push back the communists.

        NAVAL WEEK; THE MIGHTY IMPERIAL JAPANESE NAVY

    | The Imperial Japanese Army servicemen are so used to walking across vast Chinese territory that they have forgotten how small Japan is. Last week, after several obstacles, the angry military received orders to regroup. The number of military conquests Japan achieves is not important, there are only two mandatory requirements for isolated island nations that are followed even by the Brits: i) commerce; ii) a Naval Force to secure it. In the war in Europe, virtually most supplier nations and opponents of the Imperial Navy are involved, but not the U.S., so the Japanese government had to redirect its foreign policy towards Washington and its allies, London and Paris. In a week of disorder, the Imperial Army has already started to warn France about the Haiphong-Yunnan railway, which besides the Burma highway this route is the only one that goes to Southwest China, to completely stop supplies to China in two weeks, or the Army will bomb the remaining bridges. For example, these bombings damaged a large 83-kilometer bridge located in China, which will interrupt the entire Indochina line for a month. Acting quickly, Tokyo silenced the warning about the Imperial Army’s chief. The next surprise was when Tokyo informed the army that Washington was not worried about replacing the trade treaty with Japan that is about to expire soon. Although nothing significant right away, but at any time the U.S. could impose an embargo on Japan, blocking about 74% of supplies. Colonel HENRY L. STIMSON, Secretary of State (1929-1933), confirmed total opposition to Japan and supported the embargo to contain Tokyo. |

    | Meanwhile, the installation of the Japanese puppet Wang Ching-wei has been postponed yet again. Wang’s final words were gladly approved by the Army, the China Affairs Board and the Cabinet, this will be suspended once again with defectors between Chinese support and Japanese political crises. In Japan, the impact of the lack of coal and rice has left many Japanese without food and with no option to heat their homes. Responsible for the basic lack of these resources was the Imperial Army, which imported large amounts of coal and rice from China. On the other side of the Pacific, in Washington, proposals were put into practice for the U.S. Navy, which foresees a 25% expansion following Guam’s militarization. The Japanese Navy became alert and took a firm stand — able to take advantage of America. |

    | All of this that happened at once contributed to the downfall of the Abe Cabinet. The next Cabinet that replaced NOBUYUKI ABE, and to the dismay of the Army, the Cabinet was not militaristic — it was more aligned with realistic opportunism than expansionism. And to make matters worse for the new Cabinet, the Premier was a member of the Imperial Navy. Among all the men of the Navy, his name is MITSUMASA YONAI, where he served three times as Navy Minister, pro-U.S. and was against the Rome-Berlin-Tokyo proposal. When he served as Minister of the Navy, he was against putting the Imperial Navy at the disposal of two large countries with smaller navies. |

      EINRICHTUNG EINER DEUTSCHEN MILITÄRREGIERUNG IN POLEN MIT DEM ERFOLG DES FALLES WEISS; DIE HMS COURAGEOUS WIRD VERSENKT, WÄHREND SICH DEUTSCHLAND DER NORDSEE ZUWENDET

      GERMAN MILITARY GOVERNMENT IN POLAND ESTABLISHED WITH THE SUCCESS OF FALL WEISS; HMS COURAGEOUS SUNK AS GERMANY TURNS TO THE NORTH SEA

| The successful conclusion of the Polish Military Campaign by the Wehrmacht freed up many Army divisions, allowing for the High Command to re-station some 100,000 over to the Western provinces of Germany, along the Dutch, Belgian, Luxembourgian, and French borders, amid the unification of the West under the banner of the Allied Powers. The Chancellor ordered the immediate quashing of all resistance in Occupied Poland, and immediately after the surrender of over 120,000+ troops in Warsaw, German military forces, from reserve military personnel, to active units and Military Police (Militärpolizei) began anti-resistance and occupation operations, through the displaying of force before the populace through military parades and crackdowns on dissidents as well as the monitoring of sympathizers and enemies of the state. A German Military Government was established over Poland to head the transitionary period in the area west of the Vistula River before its annexation into the Staat, while a Central Gouvernment began its transition into operation in the Warsaw area and the surrounding provinces not occupied by the Soviets or Germans. The Gouvernment would be a German puppet government, allegiant to the Chancellor in Berlin. |

| Meanwhile, with the scaling down of land military operations in Poland following the conclusion of the Polish Campaign, German air and sea military operations by the Luftwaffe and the Kriegsmarine in the North Sea have been stepped up in recent weeks in anticipation of the inevitable clashes between British and German vessels in the North Sea. Admiral Raeder, an experienced navy admiral of the Kriegsmarine, was appointed commander of German naval assets in the North Sea, and was tasked with launching anti-Allied submarine, or U-Boat, operations on 10 September. Alongside the submarines and surface warships of the Kriegsmarine, the Luftwaffe also launched increased observation, surveillance and anti-Allied shipping sorties into the North Sea, targeting Allied shipping to prevent the Royal Navy and the French Navy from gaining a foothold in the North Sea, which directly borders the northwestern German coastline, as well as Denmark and Norway. Among the most significant casualties of this early naval conflict in the North Sea was the H.M.S. Courageous, a Great War-era battlecruiser first launched in 1916. She was recommissioned as a training ship for a brief time before being transitioned back to her original role (a modified aircraft carrier, as prior to being a training ship she had been recommissioned as a carrier) in September 1939. Later that month, it was sunk on 17 September 1939 by U-39, or U-Boat 39. 500 crew were taken down with the ship in the frosty waters of the North Sea. |
