Hi Airborne Rifles
Thanks for that, it will really be interesting to see how your alternative history turns the Soviet economy
around and staves off the collapse of the USSR back in the 1990's.
Without giving the game away does East Germany survive into the 1990's ?
No, there is no East Germany.
It seems that the key Point-of-Divergence for this alternate history is that the August Coup in 1991 is successful.
Therefore it is safe to assume that everything that happened before the August Coup still happened in this timeline, so since Germany reunified in October 1990, no GDR.
Also this sample chapter makes a clear reference to the Reunified Germany. But this sample interestingly also shows a largely intact Warsaw Pact, with only the GDR and Poland absent from that alliance.
I really enjoyed this sample, gave a lot of information I was seeking on the situation in this story.
By far my favorite cold-war-hot thriller is Coyle's Team Yankee, and I'm hoping this can flow as smoothly.
Actual the book have given the Russians a not-so-flattering reputation of being a bunch of incompetent idiots.
Book review: Team Yankee - Review by thehistoricalgamer
+1 for if there will be a credible approach and realistic scenario.
Team Yankee is good, but it is actually adapted from another author's story: The Third World War 1985 by John Hackett. I also believe there is another spinoff novel that I haven't read called Chieftains, about British tankers in that same war.
Granted I have not read all that there is of WWIII fiction, but as it stands now, my favorite would still have to be Red Storm Rising.
Also, one of my favorite speculations of a Cold War Gone Hot is actually this mockumentary from 1998:
