World War II was a global conflict that was fought between the Axis powers (led by Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and Imperial Japan) against the Allied powers (led by the United Kingdom, USSR and the United States of America). In our history the war ended with an Allied victory. The war was officially declared in 1939 and ended in 1945. However the fighting began as early as the mid-1930's with the Italian invasion of Ethiopia and Albania, the Spanish Civil War, the Japanese invasion of China and their attacks on the Soviet Union.
Classic Timeline/RPG TimelineEdit
In the original timeline including Wolfenstein 3D, and Spear of Destiny and any mission packs the war ends in 1945 and mirrors the historical war. The only exception is that Blazkowicz kills Adolf Hitler rather than Hitler committing suicide and ending the war in Europe as a result.
This timeline or timelines is less serious than the war as portrayed in The New Order.
The New OrderEdit
In the Wolfenstein universe, The New Order reveals that the war ended in 1948 with the Axis powers as the victors. The Nazis had beaten the Allies in creating the first atomic bomb and had it detonated on New York City after defeating Britain and the Soviet Union thus ending the war in their favor.
The Nazis rule all of Europe and most of the Americas and Asia as a technological advanced totalitarian dictatorship for over 14 years into a retro-futuristic 1960's. Italy and Japan were betrayed by the Nazis, in which Italy was invaded and Japan was turned into a German puppet state. As of 1960, the Nazis have conquered 75% of the world and are slowly, but surely, in the process of conquering all of Africa.
After the death of Deathhead and the destruction of his compound by the Resistance, the Nazis begin to slowly crumble and the process of conquering Africa is slowed down.
