Lets say that during the 1920's, Japan makes overtures to Chiang Kai-shek and convinces him to join them against the remnants of the leftist and communist forces. With Chiang Kai-shek's hatred of the Russian's interference and the lack of support from the west, the Japanese could have created an allegiance that would have shut out the Allies in China and destroyed the communist's influence. Furthermore, by working with more radical Hindus and Muslims, they might have incited an uprising against the British that would have denied most of that country from the Allies. In addition, with both countries supporting the Japanese effort, it would have freed large amounts of troops and supplies for other conquests. And other Asian nations might have been willing to join if it meant shedding their colonial masters. Could this feasibly happen with the proper leadership in Japan, and if it did happen, how would it affect the events of the war?
