Second World War at Sea
The Second Great War
December 1916: Woodrow Wilson’s peace proposals are accepted by the participants in the Great War, with the guns falling silent on Christmas Day. By June 1917 peace accords are hammered out, and the most terrible war in the history of mankind drifts into history.
August 1940: Seeking to restore the Russian Empire’s power, Tsar Alexei unleashes a powerful armored assault against Poland and the Baltic States. German and Austro-Hungarian forces intervene to defend the Poles. A month later, both empires are attacked by France and Italy. The Second Great War has come.
Second Great War is our alternative history setting for Second World War at Sea, featuring the naval side of this war that never happened, waged by fleets that (for the most part) never were. The books use the maps and pieces from Second World War at Sea series games, and add a few of their own, to tell the story of the second struggle between the Central Powers (eventually including, once again, Turkey and Bulgaria) and the Allied Powers (eventually including, once again, Great Britain).
