It is May 1st, 1969. For the past two decades, the American people have seen their country slide further and further towards the abyss. More American men and boys are poured into the Vietnamese meat grinder, and it seems only endless lines of coffins come back. The notion of true civil rights in America seems more and more like a fantasy every day, as the southern governors tighten their grip on the black populations. In the slums of America, the long-oppressed minority groups radicalize and arm themselves, the pacifist preachings of Dr. King a distant memory. In America's colleges, its future takes to the streets opposing war, racism, and the "Nazi Amerikkkan Empire," and more and more wild-haired men and woman assail the establishment by the day. In 1968, the last hope for a peaceful resolution to Vietnam, to civil rights, to poverty, was assassinated at his own inauguration, and his successor overthrown in a military coup. The riots raging across the United States slowly give way to insurgency, and as the desperate government evacuates from the chaos of the capitol to the safety of their bunkers in the Rockies, few know what the future of the country will hold. The falcon cannot hear the falconer. The centre cannot hold. Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world. The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity. Maestro, choose your instrument, and let the music play.
Bring the War Home is an upcoming mod for Hearts of Iron IV, promising to give an experience more chaotic and in-depth than any other, set in a once-United States wracked by collapse.
