Note: In most Turtledove timelines with a POD before 1945, Königsberg remains under German control and never becomes Kaliningrad.
Kaliningrad in The Man With the Iron HeartEdit
Kaliningrad had been the German city of Königsberg prior to World War II. The Germans had fought the advancing Soviet army hard for the city, but lost in the end. After the war, the USSR expelled the entire German population of the city. Vladimir Bokov noted this with some satisfaction in 1946.
