MotF 153
Note: Red circles on the map indicate missile strikes, and the color inside the red circle indicate which country fired the missile.

<Background>
To give this map a little context, I wanted to explain a bit about the scenario I envisioned. In the East, all three periods of Zoroastrianism in Cina (OTL China) are larger-scale, so much so that after the second period it becomes the state religion of Cina near the end of the first millenium. During the period of colonialism, as Europe is colonizing from the west, Cina is colonizing from the east.

Joseph Smith still founds Mormonism in western New York in the 1820's, and bounces around the US and Canada until he and his followers settle in the Rockies, creating the Kingdom of Bountiful. The Kingdom quickly becomes a quasi-theoretical dictatorship and forges an alliance with their richer, more powerful western neighbors, the Zoroastrian Republic of Jinse. The single-party state and it's parent nation of Cina see Bountiful both as a buffer and a distraction for the United States.

When the Bountiful Civil war erupts in early 2013, all major nations make unofficial agreements to stay out of the war. However, both the U.S. and Jinse, as well as Canada, are faced with an influx of asylum-seekers and terror attacks. The U.S. covertly supports some of the rebel factions seeking to convert the government to a democracy while Jinse sponsors the government's regime. The war is seen as the largest humanitarian crisis since the Second World War, with atrocities committed mainly by the government and religious extremist factions.

U.S. intervention over Bountiful chemical attack

On 4 March 2017, the town of Holy Angels in the Moroni province of the Kingdom of Bountiful, controlled mainly by the Holy Liberation alliance was attacked with what was believed to be Death gas. Victims of the attack were rushed to a makeshift hospital, which was bombed shortly after. Over 120 people were believed to have perished from the gas attack and the bombing. The U.S. and its allies assigned responsibility for the attack to the dictatorial King David and his government, although both David and the Bountiful military denied it. On 7 March at approximately 3:30 AM, from western Arizone and Cimmaron, the U.S. launched 67 Defender missiles on the Bountiful government's Selah Air Base in what was the U.S.' first deliberate direct attack on Bountiful forces in the 4-year Bountiful Civil War. The U.S. military strike was conducted without authorization from the United States Congress, or from the United Nations Security Council. Many U.S. allies, however, stated their approval of the attack, including Britain, France, and Prussia.

Jinsean Retaliation

On 8 March, as news broke about the attack, the Jinsean Supreme Leader Shanxi met with his cabinet and military leaders to discuss the attack. Jinse was a supporter of the David regime that was opposed to the U.S. backed rebels. At approximately 8:05 AM, Jinse launched 50 Sun Dragon missiles into U.S.-allied rebel territory in southern and eastern Bountiful. This action was lauded by King David and the government of Cina, who had close ties to Jinse. Tense communications and attempts at diplomacy were conducted between the U.S., Jinse, and representatives of Bountiful's government and rebel factions.

Failure of Negotiations
On 11 March, negotiations between Jinse Supreme Leader Shanxi and U.S. President Denise Trumbull broke down. It is unclear which side fired first, but by approximately 12:30 PM, both the U.S. and Jinse had missiles in the air targeting military installations in all 3 countries. Government and rebel-controlled missiles from Bountiful struck more targets in both countries as well.

Continued Hostilities
From 12 March to 17 March, all 3 nations continued to launch missiles at military installations. Elements of the U.S. Pacific fleet were instructed to blockade the Jinsean coast and fire additional missiles. Two destroyers, the U.S.S. Bolton and U.S.S. Hill, were struck and sunk by Jinsean missiles. One missile was shot down over Canada by the mobilized Canadian military. This missile was believed to be aimed at the U.S. capital. It is unclear which country fired this missile. No civilian targets were hit during this exchange, though there were civilian casualties on or near the military installations hit.

Ceasefire
On 18 March, the remaining members of the U.N. Security Council ordered an immediate ceasefire under threat of military action by the rest of the U.N. Terms for a ceasefire, mainly authored by Britain and Cina, were presented to all parties involved. The U.S. and Jinse both agreed to the terms after long negotiations, but the Bountiful Civil War and the humanitarian crisis occurring there remained unresolved.

The Second World War - Atlantean Theater
(Note: I do not own or claim to own any of the work produced by Harry Turtledove.)
This TL actually diverges from Turtledove's 'Atlantis' timeline, whose original POD is somewhere 85,000,000 years in the past, where the east coast of OTL North America breaks off and forms it's own mini-continent (much akin to OTL's New Zealand). This being said, this scenario diverges during the French and Spanish War of Turtledove's TL. In 'Opening Atlantis', the British successfully defeat the French and Spanish in several theaters, including the Atlantean theater. This results in France ceding its territory in Atlantis to Britain. These territories would later rebel and form the 'United States of Atlantis,' purchasing Spanish territory in the south as well so that the USA controlled the entire mini-continent.

In this scenario, the French and Spanish War is fought to a stalemate. While Britain and their Prussian allies are technically the winners, less territory is exchanged. This results in France maintaining its hold on its Atlantean colony.

Flash forward to the mid-1900's. Europe has reached a tipping point and lines are being drawn. The Allies, (Britain, Germany, and Moscow) are facing down the Entente (France, Italy, and Austria-Hungary). For the second time in history, Europe has sparked another global conflict.

In Atlantis, the full effect of the war is not felt right away. French Atlantis begins building up their military forces to assist their motherland. Though the United States has a 'special relationship' with Britain and has much more Anglo-German leanings, the Consuls both assure the nation that they will do everything in their power to keep the US from war.

This all changed on May 7, 1942. French airships launched a surprise attack across the mouth of the Stour River (OTL Potomac River) into southern Freetown, the southernmost state in the Union that shared a name with its capital city. The airships bombed the Blackpool Naval Yard, where a sizable portion of the United States' Atlantic fleet was stationed. Three Hannover-class battleships, two Avalon-class battleships, two Destroyers, and thee cruisers, as well as numerous other smaller ships were damaged or sunk.

This attack shifted the attitude of the nation dramatically. The next day, Consuls Richard Andrews and Micah Praeger called an emergency Senate session to request an immediate declaration of war against France. They received it, after a moving speech by Praeger, with resounding applause.

The Atlantean Theater ignited with several skirmishes across the Erdre and Stour rivers, mostly ending in favor of France. As France pushed into Germany in Europe, French Atlantis surged north into the United States, quickly taking all of Freetown and much territory in the surrounding states. The 'high water mark' sat west of New Hastings, and north of Honker's Mill and Horsham. By this time, the Atlantean army had fully mobilized and stalled the French advance. From July to December of 1943, the front remained at the 'high water mark,' hampered by trenches, mountains, and foul weather.

Relief for the Atlanteans came in the winter of 1943-1944. General Josiah Radcliff, commander of the Army of the United States, launched a winter campaign into Freetown and successfully took back the city-proper and most of the state. While French troops were diverted away from the western front, Commanders Harem Knox and Carl Hand took back New Grinstead and crossed the Erdre to liberate the southwestern corner of the country. The French Atlanteans sent requests for more troops and supplies to their mother country, but France was finding itself slowly encircled on land and water by Britain and Germany and was unable to send more support.

With the United States-proper liberated, Radcliff launched an attack against the French capital of Cosquer, burning most of it completely to the ground. Most in the US saw this as retaliation for the May 7th attack. He then moved his troops into the interior of French Atlantis, aimed for the fort-city of Nouveau Redon. By this time, the other Allied Powers had enough troops and supplies to send fleets to aid the US. Sailing east from Terranova was an Ontarian fleet under Admiral John Wilme, and west from Britain was another fleet commanded by Winston Endicott. While Radcliff struck down the Loire River in the interior of the continent, Wilme assaulted the major French port of New Marseille and Endicott shelled St. Denis and the Banks.

As Britain and Germany closed in on Paris in Europe, Radcliff continued chasing the remnants of the French Atlantean government. He finally tracked them down in a small village on the banks of the Loire. Radcliff forced the Governor-General of French Atlantis to surrender in the early part of 1946.

By the way I took your advice and I'd say my new map is far more readable.
