In a parallel universe, WWII didn’t end in 1945, instead, the war dragged on for six more years. By 1951 Europe, including Britain, was completely destroyed, cities were in ruins, rural parts scorched.
On September 8. 1952, President Harry S. Truman and First Deputy Chairman Lavrentiy Beria signed an agreement on how Europe would be rebuilt, repopulated and ultimately divided.
And divided it was. Eastern part of Europe was under total Soviet command and divided into four Soviet states. Western Europe didn't fare much better. Without any local government to speak of, countries were divided into five U.S. Protectorates ruled by the central “Government of unincorporated territories of Europe” in Washington.
Life in both parts of Europe was harsh, and both Soviet and U.S. government put an extra effort to repopulate devastated continent with either Soviet or American citizens.
This is a fragment of that time.
