  1. 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.

    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...

    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...
  5. 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...

    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...

  10. 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...
  11. 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.

    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...

    WWI:France falls after USA joins

    What if the USA joins the entente but France falls to Germany soon after. Would there be an armistice? An early D-Day? (Given how technology was a limiting factor even in 1944, and how Gallipoli went, it probably wouldn't end well for the entente)

    Keeping Italy Liberal | No Mussolini Discussion

    So, Liberal Italy, before Mussolini, is something which really only came to an end due to Mussolini. Despite the impact of the Biennio Rosso (actually perhaps partly because of it) socialism never seemed to have the support to topple Italy's political structure - somewhat interesting considering...

    British Armoured Cruisers at the Battle of Jutland

    At the Battle of Jutland the British had 8 armoured cruisers as part of the Grand Fleet. My question is how much use were they? Reading through some of the basic details it seems like half of them didn't really become engaged whilst the other half was sunk. I'm looking at a possible timeline...
