    Dutch Empire and the Great War

    Is there a way to make the Dutch Empire stronger / larger but let WW1 still occure as OTL. I was for example thinking about a remaining Dutch Ceylon, but are there more possibilities? Your thoughts?
  2. Friedrich der Große

    Alternate casus belli WW1

    So if we assume The Netherlands kept Belgium in 1830, will this butterfly the murder of Frans Ferdinand away? If the answer is yes, what are other causes of ITTL WW1 (which will off course be very different)?
  3. Friedrich der Große

    If Cape Colony remains Dutch, would WW1 still happen?

    If The Netherlands manage to keep the Cape Colony in a 1815-POD, will World War I still happen?

    The Netherlands if Germany won WW1

    What would happen to The Netherlands if Germany won WW1? Would they get more land and/or colonies (could also be on the long run), which role would they play in Europe and the world if this alternative WW1 occured? And how would Dutch politics ánd the Dutch colonial empire develop? Thoughts?

    World War I without Wilhelm II

    If somehow Kaiser Wilhelm II would have not reigned over Germany, would World War I still happen? I read somewhere that WW1 was not the result of Wilhelm II’s reign, but the result of the German army and Prussian elite having very much influence on there politics. So basically: a modern country...

    If the Belgian Revolution never happened, would WW1 still happen?

    So basically this: If the Belgian Revolution never happened and the United Kingdom of the Netherlands stays alive, would WW1 still happen, or wouldn’t it because of the butterflies?
  7. Ideological Great War: State Atheist Authoritarian-Liberalism vs Christian Democratic-Socialism

    Starting back in the French revolution a new ideology emerges from the chaos that blends laissez-faire capitalism, state atheism, and proto-totalitarianism becoming popular over the next few decades eventually taking power in the 1850's and after some butterflied chaos similar movements take...

    Fate of the Franco-Russian Military Alliance (No-USSR timeline)

    What happens to the Franco-Russian Alliance if the Great War had ended sooner, a victorious Entente before the Bolshevik revolution is ever allowed to materialize? You can imagine your own scenarios to enable the war's end, or you can reply directly on my scenario (for me it's the British...
  9. What If: Carlist Hungary vs The Little Entente

    This supposes that the Charles IV's march on Budapest starting on October 21st 1921 is successful and he takes the throne once more reestablishing the Habsburg Dynasty in Hungary. Upon doing so he reiterates that he will revoke the Treaty of Trianon as it was signed under duress calling for a...

    Threadmarks: Kiev 1911 - A stuttering Bogrov

    Kiev, august 1911 The assassin paused for a second [1]. He wanted to say something, to utter an immortal sentence that would echo in the centuries, or at least in the revolutionary circles to which he belonged. After a second that felt like eternity, he managed to utter in a shrieking voice...

    Osman Reborn; The Survival of Ottoman Democracy [An Ottoman TL set in the 1900s]
    Threadmarks: Prologue

    Osman Reborn: The Survival of Ottoman Democracy *** Chapter 1: Preparations for War? *** “The Legacy of the Italo-Ottoman War is one of incredulity in Italy, and one that of pride in the Ottoman Empire, and not without reason. The war did a lot to restore the pride of its citizens in the...
  12. No US, no Kerensky Offensive; how will WWI end?

    In my last post I asked what the effects might be of US neutrality on the immediate events of 1917. It seems that one major change would be no Kerensky Offensive, since US loans were a major part of convincing the Russians to try it. Had the offensive not taken place (and failed), Russia...

    AHC/WI: "Flipping" the fronts of WW1.

    All right the tittle may be a bit confusing but here is the basic idea. IOTL WW1 developed into fairly static trench warfare in the western front after the failure of the Schlieffen Plan, and a more open conflict in the eastern front. The 1917 revolutions in Russia caused them to drop off the...
  15. The Kaiser's Europe or What if Germany Won the First Battle of the Marne?
    Threadmarks: Part 1

    THE WELTKRIEG THE ASSASSINATION OF THE ARCHDUKE June 28th, 1914 started out fairly normally in the city of Sarajevo. Austro-Hungarian Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the heir-presumptive of the Austro-Hungarian throne, had supposedly been sent to the city to inspect the military units stationed...
  16. Charles Must Go!
    Threadmarks: Good Bye, Charlie

    December 20, 1710, at Azov Fortress (Russian Empire) The Russian soldiers waited while on patrol, waiting for a certain group of people to arrive while bracing themselves against the cold winter. Suddenly, a few of them saw a few men walking forwards. All but one of them were Ottomans, with...
  17. A entente victory in 1916: The results?

    Let’s say everything went right for the entente, the first world war is over in 1916, the battle of tannenberg was a decisive Russian victory, the French offensive into Alsace was succeful, an earlier Jutland resulted in an crushing defeat for the German navy. And well generally all this...
  18. WI: Different alignment in the Great War

    Let’s say that Austria-Hungary was still highly resentful towards Prussia (Germany), so much so that they ally with the French. The German-Russian alliance continues without interruption through the early 20th century. By then, the Ottomans join Germany and Russia while Britain joins France and...

    DBWI: Moroccan Crisis Doesn't Start Great War?

    1905- Kaiser Wilhelm's backing of the Moroccan Sultan Abdelaziz against France and Britain's influence in the region leads to the North African monarch joining the Triple/now Quadruple Alliance. This leads to France declaring war on Morocco, citing the lost investments, triggering the defensive...

    WI: Italy Joins CP?

    Otl, as I understand it, italy joined the entente due to relying on them for food, and AH owning Soth-Tyrol and their adriatic desires. What if then, AH offered to sell south tyrol to them, as well as the some of the north adriatic (AH would ideally get a good chunk of the southern portion after...
