  1. John Fisher isn´t recalled

    After reading the thread about the WNT i got an idea: What if John "Jackie" Fisher isn´t recalled to be First Sea Lord in October 1914. How will this effect the ship building of the Royal Navy. Obviously the Outrageous class of large light...
  2. Royal Navy violates Ottoman neutrality pursuing Goeben

    See the title: What if Admiral Milne, upon learning the Goeben and Breslau had passed through the Dardanelles either decided to, or was ordered to, steam into the Dardanelles and continue hunting Admiral Souchon's squadron? I'm interested in the plausibility of this POD as well. Churchill had...

    British Royal Navy vs Japanese Imperial Navy

    Ok, so I've been having discussions with my mates (Rule Britannia), so I decided to come here. Please be aware I am usually a Pre-1900 guy and thus don't have the best knowledge of WW2. Say, in 1939 (imagine Germany/Italy don't exist), the Japanese and Britain go to war, say over Hong Kong...
  4. The Kriegsmarine Gets Wings: Take Three
    Threadmarks: Prologue

    I know what you're thinking: "you're rebooting this TL again?" You see, no matter how muc I tried to make it work, there was no simply no way the opening scenario could happen, and simply editing the whole opening post would create confusion. So, I simply decided to start over once more. So...
  5. RN Capital ship WWI construction halts effect of WNT?

    RN Capital ship WWI construction halts effect on WNT? What if the first Sea Lord cancels all post QE capital ship construction on 5th August 1914 due to not wanting to waste energy completing ships that are not needed for the short war coming? So the QEs are rushed as fast as OTL but the rest...
  6. A different Royal Navy

    Inspired by a previous thread of mine I thought I'd have a go at writing an alternate history of the British armed forces. Primarily focused on the aircraft carriers of the CVA-01 program but also including other things. Apologies now if I end up veering into ASB territory but some small...

    RN writes the washington naval treaty

    https://www.alternatehistory.com/forum/threads/help-me-write-the-washington-naval-treaty.226946/ What if the RN seek to limit new battleships to 15inch guns so as to keep their "modern" battleships at the cutting edge for longer? They bring other powers to the negotiating table with G3 and N3...
  8. The Kreigsmarine Gets Wings: V2.0

    So, after some dissatisfaction with The Kriegsmarine Gets Wings, I've decided to reboot it. The general outline of the TL will remain the same, but a few details will be changed. So without further ado, I present The Kriegsmarine Gets Wings: V2.0 ---- Prologue December 29, 1944 The Atlantic...
  9. Alternative Dreadnought Names for the Royal Navy

    Just a bit of fun, prompted by the stories that King George V rejected some of Winston Churchill’s proposed name for dreadnoughts, I wondered what alternative names the Royal Navy could have considered for actual, planned or hypothetical battleships or battlecruisers in the 1910s. I’d like to...

    British Shelling of Dutch cities in WWI

    Hi guys, I have seen some people on here claim that Dutch cities in WWI sometimes were "accidentally" shelled by the Royal Navy. I couldn't find it through the search function and google doesn't give me anything. Has anybody sources on this? Thanks in advance.
