    Allies Aren’t Destroyed in Belgium... Now What? [1940-Onwards]

    So, I’ve been reading the Fall of France and it really seems like the Allies lost due to a huge strategic blunder.

    WI: No Hundred Days Or Flight From Elba?

    I've heard it tossed around a few times that France was actually going to get a bit more out of the Congress of Vienna than it did, but Napoleon's flight from elba and retaking of power led to France being left with what it received otl. Say that Napoleon's health is worse, maybe his cancer...

    What if Henry VII and Jasper Tudor had fled to France in 1471?

    As it says on the tin, in 1471 Jasper and Henry Tudor successfully land in France as they intended to in OTL. How does Edward IV react? What does Louis XI do with them? How does this affect the Yorkist regime and the Wars of the Roses?

  7. WI: Culture of a France that gets independence from England sometime during the late 1700s to mid 1800s?

    Basically, France gets conquered by England during the Hundred Years War. However, this happens late in the Hundred Years War, when the English Nobility identified as English and not French.

    A Seine linguistic border of the Gallo Romance languages

    Based on my observations It seems that Oil used to be two separate two Dialect Groups, one in the East of Seine that uses Avec which is similar to Franco-Provencal and in the West of Seine which uses Ot/Eut instead, what if the two sides became two different languages completely, it seems that...

    WI Dunkerque and Strasbourg in RN service?

    So lets just say for our purposes that the MN dispatches the two Dunkerque class battleships and a small task force, say elements of the Force de Raid, a light cruiser, two large destroyers, and three or four smaller destroyers, to help the British intercept the Bismarck when she sorties.

  13. American Revolution in world where France won the 7 Years' War?

    What happens to the American Revolution in a world where France won the 7 Years' War? What changes occur to it? I think if the taxation without representation issues still exist, the American Revolution would still occur?

    italy's joining of the triple alliance with AH and Germany is a bit of an oddity when one considers their relationship with Austria was always... less than pleasant due to Italian adriatic claims.

    The notion of a tri-polar cold war, however much that could be the case vs just being Great Power Politics lacking the ideology of the Cold War is a popular one.

    Partially inspired by this thread, find a way to make France become the first communist nation instead of Russia with a POD no earlier than 1815 (bonus if it is a multi-continental entity much like the OTL French colonial empire). And no, the Paris Commune does not count in this regard for...

    Philippe Petain is ill-regarded in France today, for his role in the pro-nazi Vichy Regime. Prior to that he was a fierce French patriot and nationalist- the Lion of Verdun. So, what if, after the capitulation of the 3rd Republic, he made his way to Algiers with Charles De Gaulle, the up and...
