World War Three (also known as World War 3, WW3 or the Great Nuclear War) was a war that officially started with official declaration of war on October 16, 2036 and ending with Chinese capitulation on August 2, 2037. Most historians, however, consider the starting date of World War Three as February 10, 2034, the date that Chinese nukes were launched at Paris, Berlin, London and Ankara.
Events leading up to the initial nuking
After the defeat of the United Islamic Caliphate of Africa, China was in an incredibly powerful spot. They had a major population source and abundant natural resources. After the defeat of Mexico, European nations such as France and Italy were in a strong position too. Also, after taking out Paraguay, Suriname and Guyana, Brazil was a major superpower and dominated Latin America. Also, at this time, Putin had remained discreet, and continued to manage Russia while the rest of the world did not notice Russia. All these events would be a catalyst for world war...
Nuking before WW3
On February 10, 2034, nukes simultaneously fell on Paris, Berlin, London and Ankara, causing the deaths of at least 10 million people and scattering radiation across Western and Central Europe, Anatolia and parts of the Balkans, as well as world hysteria. The Fifth French Republic had collapsed, and a state of emergency was called for, which allowed General Regis Marais (1982-) to rise to power in France.
The Russian Nuclear Controversy
Much of the world blamed the nuclear attacks on Russia, as the Chinese had sneakily hidden their evil deeds with Russian yield warheads. For a time, Ukraine even advocated an invasion of Russia and nuking of their 10 biggest cities. Russia turned out to be innocent, and to apologize for their arrogance, Ukraine gave Crimea to Russia and advocated for Russia to join NATO at this time of crisis.
The Nuking of St.Petersburg
On November 26, 2035, at 15:53 local time, St.Petersburg was nuked, again by the Chinese, who were smart enough to use NATO yield warheads. 2 million people died in the attack, and Prsident Vladimir Putin resigned and declared a state of emergency, leaving General Igor Gorbachev (1985-2037) in charge of Russia.
