Mod «World of a Southern Victory» for Hearts of Iron 4 (v1.12.1 - 1.12.13)

World of a Southern Victory

Welcome to World of a Southern Victory! This mod is based off Harry Turtledove's Southern Victory series, and attempts to be a historically accurate as possible to the novels. In this world, the Confederate States make good their attempt to secede from the Union, defeating the North with the help of Britain and France by 1862. The US, bitter from their defeat, turn to the fledgling German Empire in the following decades, and allies themselves against the Confederates, British, and French.
