  1. Cinco de Mayo

    "Es necesito que nos muerte por algo!" is incomprehensible in Spanish. It should be "¡Es necesario que hayamos muerto por algo!", but thinking in what you want to express it should be something like "Why we have fought for?" or in Spanish "¿Para qué hemos muerto?"
  2. Of lost monkeys and broken vehicles

    That could favour Greece in postwar by increasing industrialization and mass production techniques.
  3. Una diferente ‘Plus Ultra’ - the Avís-Trastámara Kings of All Spain and the Indies (Updated 5/5)

    The independence of Spanish colonies in South America was a close run even considering the extreme weakness of Spain in that era. Really the population in the colonies was roughly divided in two about independence. If not for that there wasn't had any war. Moreover taking into account that...
  4. The Undying Empire: A Trebizond Timeline

    I think is a wonderful TL, very well written and I would like to continue even at a low pace, but... personal and professional life take priority over our preferences, so do as you feel
  5. Una diferente ‘Plus Ultra’ - the Avís-Trastámara Kings of All Spain and the Indies (Updated 5/5)

    In XIX century in Spain there was a big investment of British capital to expand mining operations like iron in Basque country and opper in Huelva, becoming a big provider of British industry. So maybe Spain lacked of good quality coal, but it was plentiful of other resources needed for industry.
  6. Of lost monkeys and broken vehicles

    I think Turkey will be quite worried when learning of the German intentions of attacking Soviet Union because that put them in the first line of combat against the bigger of their traditional enemies. I bet they will think it wasn't a good idea after all to attack Greece.
  7. Sixes and Snake eyes Rommel's luck in an alternate 1942 desert war

    Yes, I think that would be very difficult to do even if UK government would decide to do it what I consider unlikely even if not impossible. Apart from that I find the rest of the history very possible and of course I will continue enjoying it whenever thread it will be.
  8. Stupid Luck and Happenstance, Thread III

    Finally old Jost has settled. Maybe he could know someone in movie environment and get married. The ice on the cake would be if we would have a new round of Schultz children x'D
  9. Of lost monkeys and broken vehicles

    It seems interesting. I'll look for one of these books.
  10. Of lost monkeys and broken vehicles

    Who is Michalos Roussis?
  11. Sixes and Snake eyes Rommel's luck in an alternate 1942 desert war

    Nazis being nazis it won't happen, but what if Rommel, watching the destroyed infrastructures and humanitarian crisis in Egypt that could cause even millions of deaths by hunger decides to retire and let the British manage the crisis by themselves? After all, Egypt has been neutralized as a...
  12. Sixes and Snake eyes Rommel's luck in an alternate 1942 desert war

    All the destructions of Rapier, specially of food stocks and water works could mean the death of many 100s thousands and even millions of Egyptians for which the Axis don't have neither the resources nor will to save. I doubt very much that this type of measures under the same conditions would...
  13. Of lost monkeys and broken vehicles

    Very good TL. I am a bit worried about civilian treatment by the Turks in Constantinople and other occupied zones. Turkey hasn't a good record regarding civilians.
  14. Sixes and Snake eyes Rommel's luck in an alternate 1942 desert war

    I doubt you does many friends destroying a friendly country for your war objectives and attacking the civil population that pretends to protect their homes.
  15. Una diferente ‘Plus Ultra’ - the Avís-Trastámara Kings of All Spain and the Indies (Updated 5/5)

    Since XVII was used Chinchona ( https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinchona), a plant from the New World to prevent Malaria, so it could be possible to have that big population in the south of Africa. More so if it could be growth there.
  16. Una diferente ‘Plus Ultra’ - the Avís-Trastámara Kings of All Spain and the Indies (Updated 5/5)

    The author has stated already that Spain has greater fertility rate than OTL to such point that by early 1600 it's growth will be lessened by having not enough arable land of good quality.
  17. Al Grito de Guerra: the Second Mexican Revolution

    I doubt that was the only or even the main reason. Probably weakening rivals by butchering it's population in sacrifices was the objective.
  18. Pride Goes Before a Fall: A Revolutionary Greece Timeline

    I agree. Surely Ottomans view Greece as an opportunistic country that will use whatever excuse to carve out a piece of the empire, but in the end they have been at peace since Greek independence and I think Ottomans won't expect to be attacked by Greece without reason. Summarizing, I think they...
  19. Una diferente ‘Plus Ultra’ - the Avís-Trastámara Kings of All Spain and the Indies (Updated 5/5)

    I think a good strategy would be to take some territory easy to defend and at the same time essential to Ottoman strategy. That way they will felt obligued to spend blood retaking it, but relatively cheap in blood and gold for the defender. I think that territory could be Morea or some parts of...
