  1. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Thanks, that explains it. 5% vs 10%, so only half as much industry recovered from Shanghai. Definitely worse outcome. Wikipedia tells me that "formed the core of China's wartime industry" and having only half of that would be a nasty loss, but it's Wikipedia so I have no idea how accurate that...
  2. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Man, how does an air force aim for ships and end up bombing a shopping street instead? Well that was bloody. I liked the narration of the battle. How different are things from from OTL though? That figure of only salvaging 5% of the industry does not sound good.
  3. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Spain as a puppet of italy? Well given Italian fascism seemingly survives the war, we at least won't see Spain trying to nab Gibraltar probably. 2nd Sino-Japanese War starts a year later TTL it seems, wonder how much of a difference that makes.
  4. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Well, they didn't got out that much worse than OTL at least... Question though, what methods did the modern-day scholars use to disprove the Nationalist propaganda? The last section feels a little empty without mention of them. Given the mention of "National Autonomous University of Mexico and...
  5. Under wings of the Zilant: a Golden horde timeline

    This is interesting. Couple you please elaborate on the historical post-Constantinopolis "castle mania"? I thought the European 'build castles everywhere' thing was mainly a quirk of feudalism that was winding down in this era due to a combination of centralization and gunpowder (since heavy...
  6. Under wings of the Zilant: a Golden horde timeline

    Glad to see more of this TL, and Tatar settlement creating a muslim Karelia is a cool idea! Why was artillery ineffective in this campaign?
  7. Of lost monkeys and broken vehicles

    Wow. Italy, Turkey, and Germany got the stuffing beaten out of them. That's some very lopsided casualties compared to Britain and France. Shame about the civilian deaths though.
  8. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Well that was one chaotic ATL austria annexation. It will make it easier later on to portray Austria as the "first victim" given the leadership ran away with a German gun barrel behind them. I worry what the legacy of an Austrian social democrat leader supporting the Nazi Anschluss will be...
  9. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    There's been mention of Soviet, along with most other Mainland Europe, records being destroyed at some point. Current leading hypothesis is a nuclear World War 3. (in part based on hints of a massive downturn in opinions and status of communism in the 1960s)
  10. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Glad your issues were minor. I know nothing about the OTL Nye committee, so I don't know what details are lacking because they're actually lacking, and which are lacking because the update is only briefly discussing things. Were its results still released to the public? It doesn't seem to have...
  11. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    You OK bro? What's this about axe accidents? Fascinating, did something similar to the Nye Commission occur OTL? I'm wondering how much more hobbled than OTL the USA is here with regards to intervention. New book, Pandora's Children. I suspect we'll be seeing a lot more of it. I don't think...
  12. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Interesting. Sounds like there's a change attitudes in it might percolate to popular history given enough time... and most of what we see from Revisionist Viewpoints is published in the new millennium, some very close to the 'present', so I've the impression that the historical field is in a...
  13. Until Every Drop of Blood Is Paid: A More Radical American Civil War

    IT LIVES! And that's a damn fine update. Lincoln was looking pretty poorly at the start, but his political genius showed through and he was able to get the party united behind a platform that looks like it's radical enough to give slave power a thorough whacking once this is all over...
  14. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Well this sure does point in the "German atrocities aren't well-known TTL due to destruction of records" direction. Glad that there's enough to at least un-whitewash the Wehrmacht. How popular/respected is Revisionist Viewpoints in-universe? If it's well known I can imagine people would ask...
  15. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Yup. And also, thank you for the reminder about the Anthrax. I wouldn't be massively shocked if Britain fired off Operation Vegetarian in this timeline, especially if the USA shows relatively little interest in sticking its arm into the grinder of a mainland European war a second time.
