If you’ve read this blog for any time at all, you’ll probably remember me mentioning alternative or virtual history. This, essentially, is an imaging of what might have been based on the possibilities that existed at any one time. This is a useful exercise for academics and authors alike; for instance, Robert Harris’ novel Fatherland is set in a Europe after Germany won World War II. Strange Maps has come across another map that envisions a Nazi hegemony, albeit masked by a “union”.
Ireland remains strangely out of said union, which reflects the nations that remained neutral during the war.by
