While I was working on the Cuba book, I had the Unionists working out of the Virgin Islands.
Guantanamo I gave to the Spanish Royalists... 8-)

VI is a natural Unionist stronghold, good call and I completely missed it. But. . . Cuban Spanish Royalists? That's like Manhattanites wanting to be Dutch! Absolute Blaspheme! Shame on you! :D (Way too cool and completely from left field, well done sir!)

Well, it belongs to the US... and Alfonso XIII mades a deal with the US for asylum.
shameless plug to motivate me to finish
When the US collapses, the remaining Royalists rally to their king- who is hiding out in the US held town of Guantanamo- and settle in several surrounding villages. Several thousand determined souls rapidly flee to the side of their monarch, and a small 'State within a State' forms... the Principality of Guantanamo. The worse the War in Spain goes for the Republicans, the more who flee to the Principality. By war's end, over 25,000 have crammed themselves into the small freehold- including several squadrons of Polikarpov I-16 fighters (I think I gave them 3 squadrons of effectives and some spares.) and 5,000 ill-equipped soldiers.

With the major world-wide collapse of the mid-30's, the war ends a bit faster than historical- largely due to the collapse of the Soviet Union and their inability to continue to support the Republicans. Against the Kaiser's wishes, RK Hitler sends an 'expeditionary force' to chase down the fleeing Republican forces... two squadrons of B+V 143's (my personal design) on a German military zep, followed by a ship containing the original 600 Fallschirmtruppe cadre and one battalion of Wehrmacht regulars in disguise. With little support from home, their orders are to manage a landing in the Principality and kill the deposed King... with any further action being entirely optional, and indeed, possibly unnecessary.

Isolated and with little immediate support, the Royalists and Republican deserters prepare for their last stand; and trapped in the midst of it all, a lone Confederate Captain- fallen from grace and living on short rations- desperately tries to fend off the assault... and regain some measure of his lost honor.

Thanks!
I had every intention of finishing it on several occasions, but work tended to get in the way.
My new job is only 3 days a week... so hopefully my hobbies will not need to suffer as much.

Thing is Unionists in Crimson Skies are sorta supposed to be like the bogy man I think :lol:

Or, moreso: Like the unknown "Many and widespread" Communists and Anarchists in the US in the 1920's and 30's. There was some, yes, but the fear and "whispers on the lips" were more common than actual anarchists.
