  1. Are tanks inevitable?

    Assuming internal combustion engines and cars develop similar to OTL, would you say that the development of tanks is inevitable? Say, even without a static war such as World War One, could armored cars eventually develop into tracked machines of war? The reason I ask is because in the TL I've...
  2. Moving Map?

    I'm going to describe this pretty poorly but hopefully someone can understand: On wikipedia I used to see a series of maps (the WWII page had one for example that showed the movement of the fronts) that had a series of maps that would be played like a slideshow. Each map would show up for a...
  3. Napoleon's Victory [LONG]

    I got a very nice PM today asking if I had written anymore from a timeline I wrote a few years ago and it is indeed quite long but also unfinished! I've also divided it up to make it more readable. It's probably not edited as well as it could be considering how young I was when I started. Well...
  4. Columbus Sails North

    What would happen if: On Columbus's voyage to the Americas in 1492, a storm or anything of the sort, blows him further to the north and instead of landing in the Caribbean Sea he lands in say, the Carolinas or Virginia? How would this effect the colonization of the Americas? Would it be...
  5. Pax Gallicana [LONG!]

    Hallo, I am very sorry for the length of this timeline! I did not mean for it to be so incredibly long, but when you begin writing the length takes a backseat to quality. I tried to explain everything, but please critique it. I got bashed enough for making the British lose when I first posted...
  6. What would a world war in 1900 look like?

    What would a world war in 1900 look like? Not the nations involved, but the actual military fighting. In the American Civil War, it was still relatively "stand up and shoot" fight with two sides lined up, shooting at each other. Later in the war it foreshadowed the events of WWI with the...
  7. Monarchs in Napoleonic Europe

    Hello all, I am currently writing a timeline in which Napoleon is basically successful in his wars by not getting involved in Spain and ultimately defeating Britain. The French Empire (or so I plan) will exist up to present day. I made him die in 1829 and succeeded by his son, Napoleon II who...
  8. Interesting "Post-WWI" Maps

    If you've never seen these maps, they are quite interesting. They aren't government maps, I believe, but individual ideas. http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/historical/history_dominions_1918.html Here is one for the "extinction of France". I won't post more since they're really big, but the...
  9. Napoleon's Victory, 1813

    For anyone with time and patience please read the scenario I've written these past couple weeks. Feel free to critique anything...there are a few points that I think are a bit shaky. Anyway, hope it is plausible. This isn't even a fraction of it...I have a timeline that goes near the 1850s but...
  10. Franco-Spanish Alliance Continues?

    Hello, I am writing an alternate history in which a continued French and Spanish alliance after 1807-1808 creates a very different world. However I am having a bit of difficulty in making this possible: originally I thought if I took away Napoleon's greed it could happen until I read...
