Like Our Brothers in the East-Union of Central European Soviets
On the 7th of November 1918, the anniversary of the Russian revolution a politician of the Independent Social Democratic Party of Germany, Eisner, addressed the people on the Theresienwiese. Eisner proposed the formation of workers' & soldiers' councils and demanded immediate peace with the abdication of the Bavarian king along with King Ludwig III, and Kaiser Wilhelm II. The people marched to the army barracks and gained support from the soldiers. The King went into exile later that night with a Bavaria "free state" declared by the victorious communists. When the Communist Party seized power, they enacted communist reforms like a "Red Army," seizing supports and placing factories under the ownership of their workers. It was on 6th April 1919 that the Bavarian Soviet Republic is formally proclaimed.
The Hungarian Communist Party was formed in Moscow when a group of Hungarian communists (some prisoners of war) formed a Committee. Béla Kun led a return to Hungary and created The Party of Communists from Hungary on the 24th of November. The Communists created the Revolutionary Governing Council and proclaimed the Hungarian Soviet Republic on 21 March with a coalition of socialists and communists running the new government. The dismissed President Károlyi fled and formed a government in the east. A civil war ensued, lasting months it ended in a ceasing of hostility and the creator of a demilitarised zone. Kun informed Lenin that a "dictatorship of the proletariat" had been established in Hungary and asked for a treaty of alliance with the Russian SFSR. The Russian SFSR refused because it was itself tied down in a Civil War.
With Russian refusal of the treaty of alliance, Kun looked to the Bavarian Communists for support, and they agree to an alliance between the two Communists states to ensure the survival of the Central European revolutionary states. A proposal was made for a military and political union run by a supreme body, the Congress of Soviets with national and local representatives being elected by the national governments. The proposal was put in place in late 1919 but as the Soviet republics did not border each other facilitating movement of troops in case of invasion or attack by capitalist was not easy. A plans to move through Austria to join the two Soviet republics after initiating a communist uprising in Vienna was backed Russia. Once communists seize power, troops move through Austria on the signal of the new government to put in place security and stability while the Austrian Soviet Republic government was installed and incorporated into the alliance. The Congress of Soviets was granted control of the militaries to combine them into a single Red Army to guarantee the survival of the communist movement and Ideology in Central Europe. National governments still played a large role in how non-military and economic affairs but slowly became at the mercy of the Congress who could initiate a military coup against them. The national governments, who are in power as long as the military permits it, were forced to agree to the terms of the Congress. The Congress became the true governmental body of the Soviet republics with national government officials being arrested or executed for treason in a mass purge to instil a hostile takeover. In 1922 Red Army troops occupy the capital, Munich, and the remaining national government officials were arrested to be either imprisoned or executed. Counting the coup is unsuccessful with volunteers making up the majority of the counter-coup army little can be done to prevent the complete takeover of government. The leader of the Bavarian Soviet, Eugen Leviné flees to Czechoslovakia while the leader of Hungarian Soviet, Béla Kun is captured and later executed on the day of the coup. The Leader of the Congress of Soviets creates the Declaration of the Creation of the Union of Central European Soviets functionally establishing them as the government of all the Soviets in the alliance. Russia recognises the new government a few weeks after the coup.
Like Our Brothers in the East-The World in General
With the defeat of the central power, several empires had disappeared dissolving into various nations. The Allies divided the territories as they saw fit, revolutions and uprisings dividing up the rest. The rise of the Central European communists and the Russian communists in the East made the victorious western nations feel threatened by this new rival bloc, which did not share their ideology. The Paris Peace Conference imposed peace treaties on the Central Powers officially ending the war. The 1919 Treaty of Versailles dealt with Germany, and building on Wilson's 14th point and brought into being the League of Nations on 28 June 1919. Germany and the central powers had to take responsibility for the damage they have inflicted upon the world. Because of the growing threat of the Communists revolutions spreading across the former Central Powers and spilling over into the Allied nations steps were taken to prop up and support the capitalist powers which have arisen. The Entente maintain their close relations with a build-up of the military within their newly acquired territories from the Central Powers at they received. Italy was supported by the Entente bloc in moving into to secure parts of Austria who had fallen to Communists and Italy remain part of the Entente to this day. America has the leader of anti-Communist bloc has become a major player in world affairs losing their isolationist attitude. They have proper up the new German state as a counter to the Communists. Germany did not suffer as much as in OTL with the need for an anti-Communist power in Central Europe there remained economically stable and was even able to maintain politically relevant state. The Americans expanded their influence into other capitalist nations in Europe placing them in a new position as the dominant world superpower. The cold war has started early in this timeline the next world war is likely to be between the communists and the capitalists.
