  1. Munich Shuffle: 1938-1942

    I am curious, what sort of escort carriers do the British have in TTL, and how do they differ from OTL? There's been a good bit of mention of them, and I am curious how they perform. I may be mistaken but I don't think OTL britain had mass produced escort carriers like the Americans did? Shame...
  2. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Worst. April Fool's Day. Ever. At least Curtis tries to do something but it's not enough. Most countries throwing up tarfiffs will certainly contributes to the disintegration of the international system. (How much of these tariffs were there OTL?)
  3. Dreams of Liberty: A Failure at Princeton

    Azania and the Holy Dominion just speed-ran WW1 doctrine developemt by fighting an ACW-equivalent in the jungles and deserts of Africa, with all the brutality that implies, and it is only the beginning? This is going to be a bloody timeline alright. But Burrite Democracy seems it is indeed a...
  4. Munich Shuffle: 1938-1942

    Seems overall the short-term result is much the same as OTL, just a little faster. Is the internal bickering about tanks and dumb ideas like an 88mm panzer III based on OTL? I'm curious what sources one uses to read up on such things. I myself saw it as perhaps slightly above average at best...
  5. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Sounds like the US government isn't totally useless in responding to the depression, but is not willing to take serious measures like FDR used. Jeez, sorry to hear that. Hope you don't actually have the virus. Huh, I must've missed something. What happened in Austria? Amyways, the "both sides...
  6. Solar Dreams: a history of solar energy (1878 - 2025)

    Great to see more of this. Seems Chile is set on a path of fairly fair relations between Capital and Workers. It does seem they're overreaching with the solar copper smelters, but just by how much?
  7. Munich Shuffle: 1938-1942

    Damn son. It seems that the nearer-run battle of France has caused Germany to turn the screws tighter on Vichy, which in turn undermines Vichy's legitimacy a lot faster. than OTL. I'm guessing there will be a much more active French resistance by the time the WAllies get back on the continent...
  8. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Welp, seems the Sino-Japanese mess and the tendency of junior officers to dictate foreign policy has started even earlier in TTL. The military advisors convincing Hirohito not to punish the officers is also quite the blow to the Emperor's power.
  9. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Curious what the impact on the air force will be- sounds like we won't be seeing the B-17 in this timeline?
  10. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Oh jeez, just what is Germany going to do? Is it possible we'll see a communist Germany with Moller wreaking havoc?
  11. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Damn. This naval race is heated alright! The failure of the second naval conference on top of the first one already being almost half again as permissive as OTL seems a set up for lots of stuff blowing up and angry treasurers. And Brazil got a modern-ish BB, curious what role if any it will...
  12. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Charles Curtis huh? A pretty cool guy in Kaiserreich but who knows how he'll do here, especially with that tax cut. That his election is described in a book about the makings of WW2 is rather unnerving though. My guess is that Curtis is going to adopt a foreign policy that puts the USA on a...
  13. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Great so instead of the New Economic Policy the USSR gets another2 years of civil war. That's not going to be good for their economy. Mass anthrax and gas attacks would kill a lot of people, but that alone doesn't cause the extreme destruction of records that has been hinted at.
  14. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    ATL naval treaties, a classic! That was a close run for the USA accepting it alright! I admit I have trouble truly appreciating it, but this must have taken a lot of research and planning! It seems that overall it's similar to OTL, though more permissive in terms of battleships. Am I off? I am...
  15. Dreams of Liberty: A Failure at Princeton

    Yup anything with that narrow a margin will be contentious alright.
  16. A Horn of Bronze--The Shaping of Fusania and Beyond

    Huh. While most of Fusania we've seen gets Japanese exonyms, it seems that California instead will mostly see Chinese colonization. Wonder just how strained the Japanese-Chinese relationship will be. Cool to see how one can get water even in a harsh drought. But dang, at 3-4 liters per 100m^2...
  17. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Or France/UK doing something stupid. And as we've seen from the start of the TL, American historians can be rather creative in terms of who they blame for starting a world war.
  18. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Hmm- in OTL there's a lot of contention about whether Germany actually couldn't pay the reparations, or whether they just refused to pay and destroyed their own economy by hyperinflation in their hubris. But in TTL it was mentioned German records were destroyed in WW2, so it would be much harder...
  19. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Poland, perhaps. Though I doubt losing Poznan and the Gdansk corridor is that crippling. But Germany gave up no land to Czechoslovakia, save perhaps a few tiny corners of Silesia. Czechoslovakia is almost entire comprised of land previously under Austrian rule. Sounds like Germany's rather...
  20. If You Can Keep It: A Revolutionary Timeline

    This is a lovely timeline. The frequent snippets of modern-day media looking back on things really make this very immersive. But damn, what happened to the USA is dark- at seemed we had a fair chance at an America home to some relatively egalitarian traditions, and now that fuckwit Andrew...
