The battle for Western Europe
The need to fight for Western Europe for much of the first half of the 21st Century was one of the major surprises. The Europeans were faced with the demographic equivalent of infiltration tactics, developed during the Great War. The Western Europeans generally wanted to have these multi-cultural paradises, where they allowed North African and Turkish immigrants to not integrate into their societies. Not very far into the 21st Century, they were dismayed to find that they had insurgent groups in their midst who used riots and general civil disorder as a weapon against the governments and their liberal societies. The United States had been forced to deal with these sorts of tactics, starting as long ago as 1968 and continuing for some time. In the United States, the problem was greatly reduced as the minority population, in the American case being African descendants, became more integrated and affluent. The first shots wer e symbolically fired in France and the Netherlands, and they were both quickly faced with bitter battles. Germany, with their minority Turkish population had seen the fight start as far back as the latter 20th Century.
