    Nineteen-Eleven: A different First world War
    Threadmarks: Outbreak of the Great War

    Hello, everyone! This is a timeline I worked on a while ago before I joined AH.com. I recently looked it over, and decided it needed to be redone, since in retrospect it seems very poorly researched. So... welcome to Agadir War 2.0, renamed Michel's Victory since I needed a (slightly) less...

    Yet Another WW1 CP Victory Map

    Before you read this post, take a few seconds to vent your urge to roll your eyes and laugh maniacally at my clichéness. There. Now, as a new member of this forum and a ww1 geek, I feel compelled to post a cp victory map. So here it is. The POD, by the way, is that the British Admiralty...

    DBWI: Austria not part of Germany

    As we all know, Austria became part of the German Empire after the Austro-German War of 1874, where the German Empire dealt a crushing defeat on the Austrian Empire which led to Hungary and Croatia becoming independent (Croatia became a monarchy with a local aristocrat as their king while...
  4. How could the German Monarchy be restored in the 1930s?

    Hello all, I have been recently starting to write my first alternate history story where Hitler dies in WWI, and during the early 1930s the Hohenzollern monarchy gets restored by the German National People's Party (DNVP). The only problem is I'm having a hard time figuring out how it will...
  5. Was Wilhelm II's/Tirpitz's naval expansion actually a bad idea from their perspective?

    It seems to be a near consensus here that Imperial Germany building up its navy was detrimental, because it antagonized the British and the Germans were never going to have a fleet large enough to match the Royal Navy. However, without a navy at all, wouldn't the German Empire have become...

    The Austro-Prussian War of 1866 and its precursors

    So the Austro-Prussian War in 1866 was a result of disagreements about the handling of the Second Schleswig War in 1864. That war was a result of the Diet of the German Confederation in 1858 invalidating the Danish-Holstein union constitution from 1855. And that constitution was an attempt to...

    So I've posted my Austria WIP province Map a few days ago and I thought, hey, why continue annoying the map thread iv when you also can do your own thread? So this is Valdore's V-BAM Store AkA Valdore's Shitstuff Corner. In this thread I will post (nearly) all of my maps including...
  8. AHC: Combine Central Powers into one contiguous empire

    With a POD no earlier than 1849, how could the Central Powers (German Empire, Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria, Ottoman Empire) be combined into one, contiguous empire? (Or closely integrated customs union with permanently aligned military)
  9. Mittleuropa question

    Hi all My question is regarding this map below about the "planned Tatar republic" in pink. It says that it was planned which means material out there on it is supposedly going to be scarce. Does anyone have anything on it? More interesting as the description says it was an "area of German...
  10. If Germany won WWI, but Russia still fell to Soviet revolution, which would Britain side with?

    If the German Empire and the Triple Alliance in general were victorious in World War One, and the Russian Empire still fell to the Bolsheviks and became the Soviet Union, would Britain and France side with the Soviets against the Germans to restore the balance of power? Or would the Entente...
  11. German Politicians in a continued Kaiserreich?

    As the header says, I was wondering who the leading politicians would be in an ATL where the Kaiserreich continued? The POD isn't too important (to my mind, at least) but it could be either a no-WWI world or one where WWI was significantly shorter. Mainly to avoid Germany going too far to the...

  13. WI: Enigma machines used a mixiture of Latin, Greek and Cyrillic

    What if the enigma machines used by the Germans during the wartime encrypted text using a mixture of Latin, Greek and Cyrillic, instead of the encrypted text consisting of only latin characters. Enigma encrypted text consisting of Latin characters looks like this: ZAJ IRARKF ZLTV DH SDR VQZK...
  14. Germany and Russia Allies in 1914?

    Hi, I'm new here, so please forgive me if this topic has been overdone... As the title says, how would things change if the German Empire allied herself with the Russian Empire instead of Austria-Hungary? 1) When would the PoD have to be for this to take place? 2) Would this prevent WWI? My...
  15. Alternative German Heer and smaller Kaiserliche Marine

    So, I was wondering, if the Germans managed a detente with the British and therefore ended the naval arms race, how would the money saved be better spent in regards the army? Would simply more regiments be the answer, or would the money be better used in Heavy Artillery and border...
  16. "Nazi" Top Dogs in Mittelafrika?

    I saw a Hearts of Iron Kaiserreich: Legacy of the Weltkrieg mod and notice that Hermann Goring was the head of state of Mittelafrika, the German Empire's semi-independent colony comprising most of Africa. Is this scenario possible? Is it possible that if the First World War won by the Central...
  17. AHC/WI: Russian military rational/functional by WWI

    So WWI topics tend to straddle the century divide for obvious reasons, but the POD for this one is probably going to be before 1900, so here we go. The Russian high command in WWI was pretty dysfunctional, from what I've seen, in that the chain of command between the Ministry of War, the...
