Hi All,
The mod is set in September 1939, is Global, but the Japanese-Soviet boarder wars escalate to DOWs.
So, what should this 'what if' scenario be called? Any title suggestion would help.

I like both suggestions; 'Red Star vs Red Sun' and 'East is Burning.'
Since the mod is just a slight change from the September 1939 Global Campaign, I think a name that captures war breaking out in Europe in Poland, as well as war expanding in East Asia and Manchuria.

I also just thought of "Stalin's Blind Spot"...I imagine your mod is taking a spin on how Stalin was able to basically "ignore" the Japanese as a threat and instead use all those forces against Germany. I think it would be interesting to see how this would pan out differently each time you run the mod, if you haven't thought of this already, to make the date at which the Soviet/Japan treaty breaks down variable, so that Stalin could be at some random point in the process of transferring forces from East to West when the fighting begins. Another possibility: with Japan actively at war with both the US and the USSR, would that allow for the US to do things that couldn't happen historically - like send troops/ships to Vladivostok or land bombers there without them being interred for the war (I'm thinking about the one from the Doolittle Raid)? It would be a much more convenient place to base those B-29's than China or the Marianas!

I think that will work for the 1941 version I have planned, but I am currently working on a 1939 version.
What happens if the Soviet-Japanese boarder battles expand into full scale war. I am using the global map,
during September.

So, the Germans invade Poland with UK and France declaring war while USSR and Japan are at war.

I now have a few candidate names.

1939 Empire and Reich
1939 Poland and Mongolia
1939 Eurasia at War
