  4. PC/WI - Russians enact the Duhamel Plan (Invasion of India during the Crimean War)

  5. Plausibility check: Napoleon scrapes out a victory in 1814?

    The Six Days' Campaign was Napoleon's last display of the brilliance that marked the first years of his military career.

    To be more precise-it happens in late spring or early summer of that year (classic horse ridding/hunting accident). What happens?

    AHC: France and the HRE swap places (France is a decentralized mess, the HRE is fully centralized)

    Everyone knows the Ancién Regime's French Kingdom as an, eventually, highly centralized kingdom, which shed nearly all of its fiefs and whose kings became the poster boys of absolutism and the divine right to rule. The neighbouring Holy Roman Empire, in the meantime, became a messy hodgepodge of...
