When Algeria invaded Morocco and Egypt in 2049, they met heavy resistance by civil freedom fighters and parts of Moroccan and Egyptian military forces who tried to fight off the invasion and bring down the augment-controlled governments at the same time. Ironically, Tunisia and Libya, two countries neither infiltrated by the augments nor attacked, joined Algeria’s cause in 2051. They named themselves African Coalition (AC), referring to the SAC and where ruled by the augment leaders of Algeria. Together, they broke the combined Egyptian-European resistance and conquered Egypt until August 2051. Due to increased support by Spanish and French troops and from 2052 on troops of the Atlantic-African Coalition (AAC), Morocco managed to repel Algerian invaders and fight their own augments.
The before mentioned AAC was an alliance of all states of the Gulf of Guinea from West-Sahara to Cameroon that was founded in 2052, anticipating an attack by the AC. The founding of the AAC marked an interesting turning point in World War III. As the African Coalition did not manage to defeat AAC-troops, the rest of Africa started realigning itself, forming huge coalitions where used to be nations before. In December 2052, the Southern-African Alliance was formed, consisting of the former Southern Africa, Mozambique, Malawi, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The United Swahili-Councils (Kenya, Burundi, parts of the Congo, Ruanda, Uganda and Tanzania) followed up in the same year, forming a military alliance with the AAC. With the formation of the United States of Angola and Namibia in January 2053 and the Central-African-Union (Sudan, Chad and the Central African Republic) in the same year, Africa already almost had itself shaped as it appears nowadays. The New Congo emerged from a civil war March 2053 when the citizens overthrew their national governments in the Democratic Republic Congo and Angola to join the pan-African movements against the augment aggressors.
When the augment leaders of Algeria were killed by a massive air strike from the Spanish Air Force in September 2052 and Egyptian augments were killed by a Mossad-Commando only a few days later, Africa became the first continent to be free of augment dictators. However, followers of them continued to fight until September 2053, when Egypt was finally freed by Israeli troops and Algeria became occupied by troops of the AAC and the Central-African-Union.
