  1. The USSR never invests heavily into what becomes known as the Arms Race: instead opting to invest domestically in infrastructure, development...

    This is inspired by a very old post I recently replied to - but I’m afraid since it’s so old, it’ll likely be closed. So, per the advice of others in the thread; I am starting a new one. For many, this timeline is very hard to imagine: but it actually wasn’t even far fetched before 1944-1968...
  2. A 20th Century Act of Union?

    Do you think it would be possible for the UK to pass another Act of Union in the 20th Century, like previous ones with Scotland and Ireland, to add another nation to the UK (presumably one of its colonies). At this point I think Canada is out of the picture and New Zealand or Australia would...

    Effects of no Arthur Wellesley

    The Duke of Wellington, or the Iron Duke, is one of Great Britain's most famous military figures and possibly the second most famous military leader to come out of the Napoleonic Wars after Napoleon himself. But what if he never made his mark on history? For the purposes of this argument, lets...
  5. AHC: A more complex culture emerges in pre-roman England

    A book about Arthurian England has given me an idea for what if a more complex (and not advanced as I wrote before so as not to be colonialist) culture (i'm picturing mesoamerican for some reason) can emerge from either the Celtic culture or even pre-celtic bronze or even chalcolithic cultures...
  6. Napoleonic American Revolution

    This may not be plausible but let me sorta propose this: Later in the American Revolution, the British are able to take the upper hand in the war, with a stronger southern campaign. The British secure the south, while Washington attempts to retake New York (which I believe was his original plan...

    What if Britain Decisively Won the War of 1812???

    Now, I don't care how, as many people will probably speculate, however I want to know what effects such a victory would have? By some miracle the British have managed to occupy the northern USA and hold their ground against desperate attempts by the remnants of the USA to take their territory...

    AHC: Quaker Britain

    Britain is rather officially Anglican (though with religious tolerance enshrined into law), and i've seen people occasionally create timelines and scenarios whereas Britain stays in the Catholic fold from the 16th century on in, or breaks with "crown religion" altogether under a surviving...
  9. AHC: Have American and British English be mutually unintelligible

    For this challenge, you have to have Americans and Brits be speaking variants of English about as distinct from one another as Dutch and Afrikaans. Is this possible? What could the differences be? What effects would it have on the wider world?

    The United States as a Central Power in the Great War

    Considering the tensions that still existed between the British and the Americans by the time the US entered world War 1, what would it take for the US to enter the war as a German Ally? How would this shape the rest of the century? What happens to Britain and France? Could the Russian Empire...

    What if the EIC supported the United States in the Revolution?

    After reading Wikipedia's article on the origins of the American flag awhile back, I stumbled across an interesting tidbit about why the Grand Union flag and the flag of the East India Company were so similar. Apparently, this isn't coincidental, and the original American flag was inspired by...

    The Republic of Texas: an Alternate History

    Europe and the Republic of Texas On February 14, 1840 the Franco- Texian Bill, in which the French and Texian governments agreed to allow up to 10,000 French colonists to settle near the Rio Grande, allowed eight thousand French troops access the Texian - Mexican border in order to build five...
  13. What if Russia takes Constantinople in 1913?

    During the first Balkan war after the Balkan alliance's victory the only thing between the bulgarians and the Ottoman Capitol were the last deefensive line of the Chataldzha. At that point in most european capitals it was assumed that Constatinople falling to the bulgarians is only a matter of...
  14. Great Britain wins the ARW, how bad are the reprisals?

    Let's say the American Revolutionary War (or whatever it would be called in a hypothetical ATL) ended in a British victory. How bad would the reprisals get, and how much misery in the Thirteen Colonies would there be?

    The Trent Affair causes the British to mobilize

    In OTL the Union navy stopped, boarded and captured two Confederate ambassadors on the British vessel the Trent. Lincoln was able to successfully find a diplomatic solution to the crisis, but what if Great Britain was less receptive to diplomacy and war broke out between GB and the Union, thus...
  16. Consequences of a meltdown at Windscale

    The Windscale Piles were a set of nuclear reactors built by the British government on the northwest coast of England in what is today Sellafield, Cumbria. They weren't power-producing, but were instead commissioned to produce weapons-grade plutonium for atomic bombs. Construction began in 1946...

    Would Operation Barbarossa still be executed if Britain is out of WW2 by then?

    Basically, assume that British morale is broken after disaster hits their armies in the opening years of WW2. The BEF’s evacuation from Dunkirk is more of a failure, the Italian invasion of Egypt somehow does not have its momentum broken by Operation Compass, and the Luftwffe manages to incur...

    AHC: Have a socialist revolution break out in Great Britain after WW1

    As the title says, have a revolution break out in Great Britain upon or after the conclusion of the First World War. Bonus points if you have France go Red too. And extra bonus points if Germany is the victor of WW1.
