    [Military] Post-WW1 Russian Army Challenges and Evolution?

    Whether it's an Imperial, Constitutional Monarchy, or Republic Russia that survives the First World War, how do you see the Russian military faring into the 20s and 30s? For the sake of simplicity and a bittersweet 'victory', I think the Tsar not being arrested and the ensuing political...
  2. What if Brazil joined the central powers and Argentina joined the Entente in WW1?

    What if during WW1, Brazil joined the central powers and Argentina joined the Entente? How would such a situation come about?

    The Entente wins at Gallipoli, how can the Central Powers still win WW1?

    As the title says, let's say the Entente somehow manages to have a total victory at Gallipoli and somehow successfully holds the Bosphorus and Dardanelles straits without the Ottomans or the Bulgarians recapturing them, how could the Central Powers still win the war? What effect would this have...
  4. What if the Socialists call a General Strike against WWI?

    I know that this scenario is virtually impossible, which is why I was considering putting it in the ASB forum, but the rules said it was for more "physically impossible" rather than highly implausible scenarios, so here it is. I know it's not realistic because most of the socialist parties...

    Ottomans take the Suez Canal in 1915

    In early 1915 an Ottoman raid on the Suez Canal fell short of its objective, "only" managing to arrive at the Canal and establish a bridgehead which was soon lost. Assume that for any reason the Ottoman attack succeeded... How long can the Ottomans expect to hold the Canal? Would this affect...
  6. What if Frederick III had lived longer?

    If Frederick III had never smoked therefore never developed cancer. so continues to rule Germany. Assuming that the Archduke is still assassinated. How different would the alliance that triggered WW1? Would Britain and Japan join the Central Powers?

    Could Austria-Hungary have survived Post-ww1?

    If we assume that if the Austro-Hungarian Empire wasn't split apart at the end of WW1, whether that's because they win, or if they aren't split up by the Treaty of Trianon, was there anything they could've done to survive past WW1?
  9. Pacific War and Sino-Japanese War without World War II

    Hello, I am writing an alternative history scenario and I have a question about what would happen in Asia in the 30's and 40's with the absence of a Second World War. The divergence with OTL is with a German victory after the First World War, resulting in a status quo ante bellum on the Western...
  10. How early would have ended WW1 if America had joined the Entente after the sinking of the Lusitania and the Ottoman Empire stayed neutral

    Let's say that The Ottoman Empire stayed Neutral and there was a republican US President during WW1, either Roosevelt was reelected in 1908 and 1912 or Teddy picked Elihu Root to Run in 1912 and any of them pressured the Congress to declare War on Germany after the sinking of the Lusitania...
  11. Better Pre War AntiSub considerations.

    So the Submarine by 1905-10 was figured out well enough that it could start to be considered a func weapon. POD: So what if some officer in the RN or perhaps France Russia or The US, starts taking them seriously and realizes that once a good submarine is deployed it is going to be a nightmare...

  13. Optimize German Army for WW1

    The German Imperial army IOTL was very volatile and powerful as it stood, not only in technology but in pure numbers as well as organization, however it can still always be improved upon, especially if given appropriate PODs. With a POD of no earlier ghan 1900, what can you do to optimize and...
  14. How could've the Imperial German Army fixed its inefficiencies before WW1?

    It's very known that the Imperial German army suffered very big inefficiencies such as a lack of mobilization capabilities, proper inspectorates and many more problems. How could've they been fixed before the outbreak of WW1?
  15. Russia and Germany as allies in an alternate WW1

    I have been doing some reading and research on the alliance structure pre-WW1 . The League of Three Emperors was a short lived alliance between Germany, Austria-Hungary and Russia. It was tried twice by Bismark but fell apart each time because of Balkans, specifically Russia and Austria's...
  16. What if Enver Pasha had been a truly competent military leader?

    It is undeniable that Enver was a nationalist willing to do anything for the Turkish cause, however, as we all know, his enthusiasm and bravery were his main strengths, but as a military and political leader, he left much to be desired, but, what if it had been the opposite? What if he had...

    Is a successful 1918 Spring Offensive possible?

    I've seen some persons on this forum that the Spring Offensive is destined to fail, but with the US joining ww1 as per OTL can the Germans succeed? And if the US stays neutral?
  19. What if Elihu Root was elected president in 1912?

    Teddy is reelected in 1908, and Taft became a Supreme Court Judge. So Teddy Picked his Secretary of State Elihu Root to run In 1912. With No split vote, Elihu Root became president in 1912 with Hiriam Johnson as his VP. How this would change WW1? Your Opinions?

    Italy joins the Central Powers but the Entente still Wins

    I can't understate that a powerful notion of Italy joining the war on the side of the Central Powers would result in a Central Powers Victory and the consequences of world coming from that. But I barely anyone exploring the opposite direction of the Central Powers still losing with Italy on...
