    Chapter 0 - Prologue and Timeline of WW1 So before I begin, I'd like to mention this is far from my first time posting to ah.com. However, it has taken me quite a while to actually commit to a timeline on such a level as what you're going to read through, and without spoiling too much, I'd...

    A German blockade of Venezuela, to ensure the payment of the nation’s debts, was under consideration in Germany as early as mid-1901. But it wasn’t until late 1902 that a plan was put into action. On the 9th of December of that year, following an unanswered ultimatum to Venezuela by both...

  5. Masters of Fate : Alternate WWI TL

    Peace The masses ran out onto the streets on the evening of the 7th of August 1919. News of peace talks came with mixed reactions. Many couldn't wait to meet their couragous sons, proud fathers, loving husbands or caring brothers, some hadn't heard from their loved ones since the infamous...
  6. What would a present day without World War 1 look like?

    Essentially no Fascism, no Communism, no Art Deco, no Prohibition, no "Dieselpunk". How do you think a world like this would evolve like in the 20th and 21st centuries? People becoming increasingly sexually open and naturalistic, with an Art Nouveau style spreading its comfortable vines all...
  7. Challenge: Make the 20th century advancements slow then really fast

    So I got this a bit of challenge that it would be interesting see to happen. Basically make the 1930-1940 world feel like the early 1900's to 1910 with same technologies, fashion, values, etc. Then from that point advance it really fast and make the current present-day feel the same with modern...

  9. AHC: Make more "North Koreas", psychologically 20th century countries survive into the 21st century!

    I remember seeing a BBC report on North Korea a few years ago, about how "North Korea was so 20th century".

  11. How would a mid 20th century Russia look socially if it was never Communist?

    So I had this thought to how would one of the most isolated countries at that time realistically look from (1945-2000) if it was never Communist? It could be having no October Revolution happen or Whites winning the Civil War. This could butterfly the effect of WW2 and the Cold War but I'm...
  12. Demographics of a surviving Austria-Hungary?

    WW1 still happens somewhat similar to OTL, but without diving too much into details, Austria-Hungary remains completely intact following the war. Based on hindsight and on pre-war trends, how could the demographics of Austria-Hungary look like by the early 21th century? How big could the...

Gandhi also was assassinated by a Hindu fundamentalist shortly after India gained independence. Historical figures...
  15. Examples of songs, novels, poems, and general cultural expressions when there was a sense that the "20th century could have gone off in any direction"

    In the early 1900s, and for a time even into the years of World War 1, there was a sense in various cultures that the 20th century has the potential to go off in a very positive and novel direction, compared to past eras, coupled with a certain sense of uncertainty. For example in Hungary, a...
