1. WI: Holy Roman Empire includes West Francia but not East Francia (Germany)

    I'm not exactly sure how this would happen, but I suppose the easiest would be for an Otto the Great analogue to be born in France around the 950s. What I'm interested in are the effects of such an arrangement on the development of Germany as a nation, does it become a strong centralized kingdom...

    You may delete this because I didn't realized this was after 1900s
  3. Politics of a United, Neutral Germany post-1945?

    The idea of a prospective Neutral Germany has been discussed on this site quite a bit over the years, primarily what if the Molotov note in 1947 or the Stalin note in 1952 had been accepted by the west - regarding whether these proposals for a unified Germany were sincere or not is a matter of...

    AHC/PC: Germany reverses ToV and Nazis stay irrelevant

    Let's say that for whatever reason Weimar Germany does survive for decades, and Germany regains its strength over time. How plausible is it that they reverse ( some of) the changes the treaty brought upon, territorially and/or otherwise?

    WI: Germany Directly Attacks France (Instead of Invading Through Belgium) in 1914

    In 1914, Germany decided to invade France by first passing through Belgium. This decision was made because the Franco-German border was heavily protected, and the Germans felt they would be able to defeat the French more quickly by first attacking Belgium before moving on to France itself...

    WI Germany Took Indochina Instead Of Alsace-Lorraine In Treaty of Frankfurt?

    The Prussian leadership that dominated the North German Confederation never wanted to take Alsace-Lorraine in the treaty of Frankfurt, not wanting a permanent enemy in France. But the south german states demanded it, seeing it as a buffer against Paris's aggression. France, for their part was...

    What if the Treaty of Björkö is ratified by Germany and Russia ? Does this POD even matter since Austria-Hungary and Russia will still be in conflict over the Balkans ? Was a Habsburg-German split even possible ? I would suppose it is if this breakthrough prevents the 1907 Anglo-Russian convention but...
  8. Germany beats France and switches to Russia.

    In late September 1914, the French Government has capitulated and the British evacuate. Germany and Austria Hungary (no Ottomans in this scenario) then start an offensive into Russia. IOTL, Germany sent roughly 50% of their troops to the Eastern Front in the Spring of 1915 and soon started the...
  9. Russia sends all 7 armies to fight Austria-Hungary

    In August 1914, Russia mobilized 7 armies and sent them to the frontline. 2 of them went to East Prussia where the 1st army was destroyed. 1 army went to Poland. And the other 4 armies (1,000,000+ men) went on the offensive in East Galicia. In OTL, the Russians inflict 450,000 casualties and...

    With any POD after the beginning of WWI, put the Habsburgs on the throne of Germany.

    WI: a worse defeat for the BEF at Mons in 1914

    What if the BEF were somehow defeated even more viciously than they were IOTL's Battle of Mons, perhaps even having their retreat flanked by the Germans and maybe even getting encircled. Could the Germans simultaneously encircle and severely damage or destroy both the BEF and the French Fifth...

    AHC/WI: French Fifth Army encircled at the Battle of Charleroi

    What if the French Fifth Army was encircled by the Germans at Charleroi in August of 1914? How would the Germans have successfully pulled this off militarily, and what impact would the lack of the fifth army make in the war?

    How can Germany win the Battle of the Marne?

    What decisions could the German generals have made but didn't that could have won the Battle of the Marne?

    Which is more realistic? A German victory in 1914 or a German victory in 1918?

    There seems to be two kinds of depictions of a Central Powers victory in Alternate History. The first is a swift German victory by the end of 1914 or practically assured by the end of 1914. PODs for this usually involve Germany winning the Race to the Sea, winning the Battle of the Marne, etc...

    WI/AHC: Germans take Amiens during Operation Michael

    What if the Germans take Amiens in the 1918 Kaiserschlacht? How could the Germans take Amiens through Operation Micheal? And would loosing a key link in the British supply chain cause a crisis that knocks France out of the war before the Americans arrive in force?

    WI the nazis really were into occultism

    So, as far as I know the "occultist nazi" stereotype was only valid for some very few fringe figures on the moviment, but this myth got out of control on the 2000s thanks to "The History Channel" documentaries. That being said, what would be the ramifications if someone who was really into...
  17. DBWI :WI The Soviet Union Had Not Liberated Everything Up To Brussels , The Czechoslovakian Coup Had Not Failed & There Was No Fertile Crescent Plan?

    Would Italy have lost her territories gained during the war(like Savoy, Corsica, Cattaro, Dalmatia and Lubiana)? Would have Yugoslavia not being divided into East and West ? What else would have happened? Would have Kingdom of Syria exist today? What are your thoughts about it?

    Germany divided into multiple states post WWII: Effect on Europe's economy?

    Germany is one of the biggest economies in western Europe, a bedrock of the EU. If Germany stumbles a bit, at least a few countries trip and fall down. How would the European economy look during the 20th century and beyond if at the end of world war two Germany was broken up into a series of...

    AHC:This "Germany"

    So alternate unifications of Germany are fascinating to me and many others on this forum. One I always find interesting is a kliendeusthland without purssia (or tradiing it for german austria). So I was thinking, what kind of post-westphallian PODs would w need to get this germany, which instead...
  20. Could the Vasas have created a Protestant Empire?

    I've seen here and there some discussions about how if Gustavus Adolphus survived Lutzen or was more successful in the 30 Years War, he would have become a sort of Protestant Holy Roman Emperor, ruling over Northern Germany. But are there any historical sources that show this was what he had in...
