    AHC: Turn the Falklands War nuclear

    With a POD in April 1982, your challenge is to have the Falklands War escalate to such a point where the usage of nuclear weapons takes place.

    King George III and Queen Charlotte had 15 children, 13 of whom survived childhood.

  3. WI: David Lloyd George died from the Spanish Flu in 1918?

    On the evening of 11 September 1918 David Lloyd George was found to have contracted the Spanish Flu. For 10 days he was in intensive care, and it was described by staff as “touch and go”.

  4. WI/AHC: The (actual) 1964-1967 British Invasion of the USA

    What if the so called cultural "British Invasion" movement in the mid-60s was a real, full fledged invasion across the Atlantic? Whatever the justifications for this war, its outcome and consequences are up to you - all I ask is that there is no POD prior to 1945 ;)
  5. No House of Lords reform 1911

    Inspired by another thread on the 1999 reform, WI there is no Parliament Act 1911? Maybe the Lords passes the People's Budget in '09 or something and the Parliament Act is never tabled.

  7. A soviet-franco-british alliance in 1939

My Warsaw POD is in 1920, during the Soviet-Polish war, when the Russians manage to win in (the Polish victory was a miracle), Poland joins the USSR, the League of Nations allows the German annexation of the Gdansk corridor, the...

  9. Labour loses in 2005- who would lead the Party after Blair.

    Ok, my scenario features multiple PoDs: 1)The 1993 WTC bombings are successful and and the ''War on Terror'' starts 8 years earlier. US is not involved in either Afghanistan or Iraq and instead atatcks Sudan (which hosted Al-Qaeda back then) and generally focuses more on Africa during 1990s-...

    Decisive Victory/Victories by the British in 1854 in Crimea: Can Lord Raglan or one of his underlings pull a Wellington?

    The Crimean War is notable as it is known by many to be the first "Modern War" of the 19th Century, being fight with new technology such as the telegraph and improved weaponry, but largely the same tactics as the Napoleonic Wars.

  15. WI: No War of 1812

    I've seen plenty of threads discussing a different outcome for the War of 1812, but I have yet to see one where it doesn't happen at all. So what would be the immediate and long-term consequences of having no Anglo-American war in 1812? Would there be one anyway in the future? What does the...

    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...
  18. Lab-Lib pact plausibility check

    So I've been playing around with Prime Minister Infinity and had a pretty solid run as the Liberals in 1950 and enjoyed myself so much I'm thinking of both making a continuation scenario and maybe a short timeline based on how a hypothetical Labour minority government with Liberal support would...

  20. The effects of no Iraq War on the UK?

    What would the effects of no Iraq War have been on the UK. With a POD of Al Gore wining in 2000 but 9/11 still occurs resulting in the war in Afghanistan still happening but America deciding not to invade Iraq. How does the rest of Blairs term unfold? I expect him to beat whoever the Tory...
