  1. AHC: Communist Hitler, Fascist Stalin

    Your challenge is to have Hitler become a communist and Stalin become a fascist, rather than the other way around. They don't necessarily have to end up in positions of power, just hold those ideologies. Just in case anyone asks, I put this in Before 1900 because Stalin at the very least...
  2. Would North Korea ally with Romania if Nicolae Ceaușescu won

    ITTL Nicolae Ceaușescu wins and stops the revolt and continues the communist path. Would North Korea and Romania Become Allies or would they ignore each other? How would this impact international relations? Would Air Koryo have flights to Bucharest? Also vote in the poll.
  3. WI: More Successful Red Wave

    I'm not sure about the exact POD but say the Great war drags on for another year causing mass discontent with successful revolutions in Germany, Hungary, Slovakia, Ireland, Spain, Finland, Sweden, and Bulgaria. Further revolutions occur in Argentina, South Africa, and Persia. The Communist...

    WI: Brezhnev's successors had survived?

    Leonid Brezhnev was General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union from 1964-1984. During his leadership, the liberalisation policies of Khruschev were reversed. The USSR entered a period of social, cultural, and political repression which, while not on the scale of Stalin, was...
  5. AHC: Have China, not Russia, be the first country to go Communist

    Have the Bolsheviks fail in Russia but the CCP still take over China
  6. Could any of the communist goverments of Eastern Europe have survived the Soviet Collapse?

    Assuming a time line in which the communist party does not remian in power in Russia itself which nation of Eastern Europe (or ex Soviet republic) has the best chance of remaining committed to communism. I have always found it interesting that even a nation like Albania that had split with the...
  7. AHC: Cold War between Religious Communism and Atheist Capitalism

    First thread, might as well make it personal. I've always considered myself a Christian communist but as an American, i'm in the minority. For some reason or another Americans are literally incapable of mixing together religion and equality. Makes picking sides during political arguments fairly...
  8. WRONG FORUM

    You may delete this because I didn't realized this was after 1900s
  9. AHC: As many communist African countries as possible

    Communism played a major role in decolonization, so how can we get more communist countries in Africa?
  10. China and a surviving USSR: WI a world with two *communist* superpowers?

    China is, by many if not most analysis, destined to become a superpower this century, comparable to the US. For a period between 1991 and a debatable date, the US was considered the only remaining superpower, with the USSR falling from its former ideological, symbolic, and of course material...

    Post-WW1 socialist revolutions succeed?

    In the wake of the Great War, Europe was stricken by massive socio-economic upheaval. People all over the continent, war-weary and hungry, were fed up with the contemporary order, and many became attracted to Marxist ideals and socialism. From Russia to Berlin, from Bavaria to Hungary, uprisings...

    Soviet Russia after an early end to WW1?

    Could Lenin or other Communists rise to power in Russia if Germany surrendered late 1917 or early 1918 instead of November 11, 1918? Assuming Lenin still ends up in Russia somehow.
  13. What if Lenin & Trotsky Were Killed During the July Days?

    During July 1917, when the workers of Petrograd wished to overthrow the Provisional Government for its continuation of the war and lack of progress on agrarian reform, it was an extremely difficult situation for the Bolsheviks. They knew that they didn't have sufficient support throughout the...

    What happens to Korea in the event that Japan does not surrender?

    Most discussions about Operation Downfall revolve around the affects on Japan itself and America, but I want to explore what happens to Korea in the event of a successful Kyujo coup, the atomic bombs being delayed, or other PODs although it is understandable the relative lack of focus on there...
  15. Red World OG & FAN FORK Discussion About The Countries of the World Lore

    So far I haven't seen that discussion about one of the most bizarre Hearts of Iron 4 workshop creations. So I thought I was it was a good idea to create a thread about the countries and the lore. I haven't played in a while so I can't get any information about it. I would say let's put the...

    WI: Kronstadt rebellion succeeds?

    The Kronstadt rebellion was a rebellion led by sailors and workers as a protest against economic policies, food shortages, and political repression and violence, which hadn't shown any sign of loosening, and they felt that the revolution had been betrayed. This rebellion was significant because...

    WI: Giap killed at Dien Bien Phu

    Võ Nguyên Giáp is considered by some to be one of the greatest military strategists of the 20th century and was a high-ranking general in the Vietnam People's Army as well as being Deputy Prime Minister for decades, and was influential in the course of the Vietnam War. So what if he died at Dien...
  18. WI: Socialist Realism not made official art style of USSR

    I was reading up on the history of Soviet art, and a pretty obvious question came to me: what would it be like if the USSR never adopted the "Socialist Realist" art style as official, and therefore never suppressed alternative art styles? If you don't know, after the Russian revolution a variety...
  19. Best case for Russia/USSR after 1917

    With a PoD of around March 1917 (when Tsar Nicholas II abdicated the throne of Russia), what would have been the best possible outcome for the Russian Empire/Soviet Union by the close of the 20th century? Avoiding war and/or keeping the USSR intact is not required if you do not feel it is...
