    Russia in a world with no World Wars

    A little while ago, I made a thread about culture in a world with no World Wars, but some of the discussion there made me want to talk about Russia in particular, and beyond just culture. After seeing folks like WIAH and plenty of other Anti-communists talk about how well off Russia would be...

  6. WI: Tver Unification of Russia

    A while ago I asked about alternative unifiers of Russia other than Muscovy, with the most reasonable option being the Principality of Tver. Tver was the most powerful state in medieval Russia until the Golden Horde back Muscovy against them in the 14th century. If the Tver princes were more...

  10. PC/WI - Russians enact the Duhamel Plan (Invasion of India during the Crimean War)

    The Duhamel Plan was the proposed Russian invasion of India during the Crimean War. It is… ambitious to say the least. The idea was to threaten the British-controlled India by invading through either Central Asia or Persia. The invasion force would consist of nearly 30,000 Russian soldiers...
  11. Russo-American alliance: Does it mean PRC aligning with Eastern European countries?

    Let's imagine that Ross Perot manages to become the American president in 1992. During one of his debates, he said that US must focus on aiding fromer Soviet republics and try to turn Russia into ally and ''citadel of democracy''. So, let's say that he ignores the wishes of the former Warsaw...

    No Bernadotte for Sweden - effects on Napoleon’s invasion of Russia?

    I’ve been reading Dag Ahlander’s Sverige vid avgrunden 1808-1814 (Sweden at the abyss 1808-1814) detailing Sweden’s political and diplomatic situation during the critical years of the Napoleonic wars. A big surprise while reading it was the large roll Ahlander attributes to Charles XIV John...
  16. Gustav III's Russian War goes better for Sweden?

    While he was definitely a skilled politician, Gustav III's tenure as king of Sweden was mediocre at best thanks to his rampant spending and inability to stick to a consistent program. One of his schemes was a surprise attack against Russia, then bogged down in one of its many wars with the...
