Map Monday: The Future Intermarum by Zaius

Map Monday comes out early today because there will not be a Weekly Update this week. This weekend was my wife's 30th birthday extravaganza and I just did not have the time to sift through all of the news for the week. I still have some good posts for you and I promise to catch up on last week's news next Monday, so without further ado, here is this week's featured map:
The above map is The Future Intermarum by Zaius. The author didn't give too much details of timeline, although there are a few hints from the map and the text that point to either World War II being avoided or else the Soviet Union not existing. Either way I liked the idea of an Eastern European alliance keeping the bigger empires at bay. Perhaps a tad implausible, but I have a soft spot for the underdogs. What do you think?

Honorable mentions this week go out to Here Be Dragons by Goldstein, The Fall of Yugoslavia by Gian and the Great War in South America by Direwolf22. If you want to submit a map for consideration for the next Map Monday, email me at ahwupdate at gmail dot com with your map attached and a brief description in the body of the email.
