        I've only visited Wildflecken (for about a month of GDPs) and shorter visits after that.

        I've been to Graf 6x for training, plus a few shorter visits.

        I've lived at Hohenfels for 2x years and can only say "Hohenfels is a great place to live, but a bad place to visit."

        Iraq is not much good for either. See you soon!

          I thought Montreal fell to Amherst on Sept. 8th 1760.

          Anyway, it's likely the American Revolution would not have happened when it did, or at all with a remaining French threat to the north. One of the main causes of talk of independence from New Englanders was the lack of any threat from the French after 1760. They felt they didn't need British military support anymore.

              HiredGoon raises a good point presuming the French maintained their rather large North American colony odds are the US as we know it today would never have come into existance and for the very reason he notes, the continual fear of a large powerful possible enemy.

              Perhaps the original 13 colonies and the British Atlantic Canada colonies (NS and Nfld ) may have eventually emerged as some sort of independant country as did Canada in the middle of the 19th century but then again maybe not.

              The BNA of 1867 might not have happened if there had not been a USA.

              This also leads to the possibility of wheter or not Spain and Portugal would have lost their colonies in Central and South America.

              A France with a strong North American presence may not have gone through it's own revolution. No revolution then possibly no Napoleon. No Napolean no invasion of Spain and Portugal.

              To invasion, possibly no loss of prestige which helped with the later independance movements in Latin America in the 1800's. Also there would have ben no USA as an "example" to these potential Latin American republics to emulate.

              Hmmmm and all this because Wolfe found a path up a cliff and the winter was a little late in coming that year. Almost sounds like an alternative history novel worthy of Turtledove.
