"The Empires twilight" was originally a thread on the What if modellers forum, though now it is run almost exclusivly here on the wiki and on Facebook.It is an alternative history of the world with a point of departure during the second world War. Singapore does not fall as it did in our world. Instead it holds out for a prolonged siege with major Royal Navy losses whilst resupplying the city. A result of this is that the Commonwealth is a much stronger institution and in the months upcoming to the Suez crisis in 1956 Britain is able to persuade it's Commonwealth partners to join it in the assault upon Egypt, leading to a much more successful outcome to the operation and the fall of Nasser. One of the major outcomes of this change is Britain pulling out of NATO and the forming of the New Commonwealth military alliance with Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa and a new " Special Relationship" with the French Republic. The history of this world from 1956 to the 91 Disaster (1991) is portrayed through snippets of information that come with the models, world maps, small stories and regular picture stories with captions explaining the situation.
Hope you enjoy your visit to my alternative world.
