The Second Great War or GWII, also known as the Second World War or WWII, was a major armed conflict that began in 1946. It marks the first time where the Allies fought with the Soviets.

Background

The Second Great War follows the events of Red Alert 1 (in particular the canon Allied campaign). Similar to the Red Alert 2 timeline, the Allies were ultimately victorious at the end of the war, and the leader of the Soviets during that time, Stalin, was killed.

According to their respective lore in the official website, several units in Mental Omega directly succeeded those featured in Red Alert 1. These units are the following:

Trivia

  • Red Alert was planned to be a prequel to the original Command & Conquer (which could have explained the background for some of the more outlandish technologies seen in the latter). However, this idea was complicated after the release of Red Alert 2 by Westwood Pacific, which led the Red Alert universe to an entirely different storyline. The main Westwood studio in Las Vegas attempted to remedy this with Tiberian Incursion and Renegade 2, but Westwood Studios were closed before these projects could reach a serious development phase. Hence, the Red Alert universe can be seen as separate to the Tiberium universe, but the connection to the Tiberium universe after the Allied ending in the first Red Alert can also be considered an alternate timeline. On the C&C Wiki, the latter approach is considered valid, unless otherwise stated.
