The Prequel to this serie: The sequel to this serie: See also:

United States of America (alternate)

The US is said to have 34 stars at the beginning of WW1, however, if one looks at the map in the front of the book, there's only 33 states. The Dakota territory was admitted as a single state, and the Arizona territory was never carved out of the New Mexico territory. Whether the "extra" star is an error on the part of the author's, or whether it's deliberate, perhaps some form of symbolism (the "lost states", maybe?), or something else entirely (statehood for DC?), I'm not sure. It increases to 35 after Kentucky is reconquered, and again to 36 after the new state of Houston (carved out of western Texas) is admitted. Sequoyah is under US occupation, but not formally annexed.

Confederated States of America (alternate)

By the start of that world's first world war, the Confederate States have 16 states (the original 12 plus Sequoyah [our Oklahoma], Cuba, Sonora, and Chihuahua). However, as Kentucky is reconquered during that war, one presumes a star would be removed, but this is not mentioned.
