    WI: King Constantine I of Greece dies in 1915

    Basically as the tin says. IOTL, Constantine I had been suffering from pleurisy for quite some time and almost died in 1915. So, what if he had actually died two years into his reign and been succeeded by his eldest son, George II? Would George II have continued his father’s policy of neutrality...
  2. "What would WW1 have looked like had the US joined the Central powers in 1917?" Binkov video

    Sooo... What do you think? I'm honestly kinda puzzled how could such conclusion be reached...
  3. Effects of a stalemate peace or a late CP victory in WW1 on Spain?

    Can't really expand on the question, I really don't know much about Spain from this era. Still, I'm curious about any kind of views and thoughts on the matter. How would Spain develop in such world? Would the monarchy still be overthrown? What about the civil war? Please tell me what you think!
  4. Cities of a modern day Austria-Hungary

    Hello there, everyone! After a relatively long absence, here I come with yet another Austria-Hungary thread! In the table below, I compiled a list of Austro-Hungarian cities, which I would expect to reach the size of atleast a hundred thousand by 2019 in my TL. To summarise this alternate...
  5. WI: Greece, the Netherlands, Spain, and Sweden join the Central powers

    If Greece, the Netherlands, Spain, and Sweden all joined the Central powers, how much sooner would WW! end, what concessions would they demand, and what does postwar Europe look like?
  6. Non-genocidal Japanese Empire

    POD any time after 1910 (Japanese annexation of Korea). How can Japan keep control over its colonies without the situation devolving into the egregious violations of human rights seen in OTL? Is there any way for Japan to both keep long-term control over its colonies AND provide for good living...

  8. What if any attempts at a federation or commonwealth to save Austria-Hungary from breaking up after ww1 happened?

    As known, the population of Austria-Hungary was made up of 11 major ethnic identities.. When the war ended, A-H broke up as it was instead of forming a new federation of Austria Hungary with an exclave in Romania Slovakia + Czechia Bosnia Croatia + Slovenia with land ceded to Italy...
  9. East first! Europe after a German / CP victory in 1916

    Suppose the Central Powers are victorious in 1916 because Germany chooses an "east first" strategy, what will Europe look like afterwards? I have worked out a timeline for this and incorporated it into maps. I am curious about your opinion! Prelude 1914 28 June Murder of Franz Ferdinand...

    Was Austria-Hungary really doomed?

    The common perception is that the Habsburg state was doomed to disintegrate since it had so many ethnic groups, and WW1 simply sped up the process. However it seems like this idea was popularized much latter in order to justify Austria-Hungary's destruction. I believe that the level of...

    July 1917 Kadet Coup against Kerenksy?

    More or less what it says on the tin, I'm curious about the plausibility of, in the aftermath of the Kerensky offensive and the July Days, a Kadet-backed coup (a la Kornilov affair, perhaps with Kornilov) during the tail end of July 1917. At the time of the July Days another revolt was happening...

    AHC: Devise a scenario for how WW1 begins and unfolds with a pro-German/Austro-Hungarian Serbia and Greece alongside a pro-Entente Bulgaria and Ottoman Empire. What are the preconditions for such a system of alliances to emerge? How would the war play out assuming in the event of an Entente or...

    What If: Williams James Sidis becomes a politician/Soldier?

    So William James Sidis is generally regarded as the man with the highest iq in recorded history, some of his more ridiculous intellectual feats are learning portuguese in a simgle evening and entering Harvard at 11, he became a matematician and lived a quiet life, but what if he had instead...

    What if the Treaty of Björkö is ratified by Germany and Russia ?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Bj%C3%B6rk%C3%B6 Does this POD even matter since Austria-Hungary and Russia will still be in conflict over the Balkans ? Was a Habsburg-German split even possible ? I would suppose it is if this breakthrough prevents the 1907 Anglo-Russian convention but...
  17. Germany beats France and switches to Russia.

    In late September 1914, the French Government has capitulated and the British evacuate. Germany and Austria Hungary (no Ottomans in this scenario) then start an offensive into Russia. IOTL, Germany sent roughly 50% of their troops to the Eastern Front in the Spring of 1915 and soon started the...

    WI: Mittleafrika Established In A CP Victory?

    If Germany won ww1, and was able to take the belgian and french congo colonies as well as French Gabon, thus establishing its dreams of Mittleafrika, how would that impact the surgant german empire? How would it govern the massive colony full of differing natives and white elites? Would they...
  19. Russia sends all 7 armies to fight Austria-Hungary

    Could Teddy Roosevelt Have Mediated WW1?

    A negotiated peace in ww1 is an old debate, and the general conclusion seems to be "no one liked wilson enough for american mediation and were too angry to directly negotiate." But there's one president who was much more respectable and had a history of mediation for European affairs. Teddy...
