    DBWI: Allies accept call for armistice in 1918

    As basic as it sounds. Would our world be better if the allies accepted the German call for an armistice in 1918 rather than call for Unconditional Surrender? Would it prevent the militarist coup and subsequent invasion and occupation by the Allies? How would Germany (and Europe and the US for...

    WI: The Ottoman Empire joined the allies in WW1?

    So I'll be the first to admit that I'm not much of an expert on the Ottoman Empire, but from my readings, I've gathered that they were friendly with the British for a while before WW1. So my question is: What if the Ottomans chose to side with the Allies in WW1 and how could we get to this...

    Can Kaiserreich invade UK...With a twist?

    I am not asking for Sealion in WW1, like some other thread does. I am specifically asking about the situation, which can be shortly described as: Central Powers win WW1 sometime after March 1918, due to unspecified varous earlier PODs( Ludendorff and Hindenburg out of the optics with all...
  4. Luxembourg stays Dutch

    In 1890, the Dutch king William III died. William III was King of the Netherlands, but also Grand Duke of Luxembourg. William III’s daughter Wilhelmina succeeded her father as Queen of the Netherlands, but not as Grand Duchess of Luxembourg, because only men were able to became Grand Duke of...

    AHC/WI: Best Scenario For Post WW1 France?

    otl france was.. shall we say... "really not having a good time like at all god help them," from 1914 (ww1) through to 1962 (Algerian independence and the collapse of their mainland holdings in Africa) so. inspired by the "keep the french security order for 44 years) thread, how do we give...
  6. WW1 if the Netherlands got the Rhineland

    What if, during the Congress of Vienna, the Netherlands got the Rhineland: How would WW1 look like then, or would it butterfly away. In this scenario, the UK of the Netherlands stays united: Belgium doesn’t break away because the Rhineland helps them to crush the Belgian Revolution. So, how...

    Alternate British WW1 Grand Strategy: The Baltic Project
    Threadmarks: Lord Fisher’s Baltic Plan

    I recently watched this fascinating talk by Andrew Lambert, about how Britain should have fought the First World War according to Lord Fisher’s strategy: As he explains it, the Baltic Plan was NOT, as previous posts on the topic suggest, to simply shove the Grand Fleet into the Baltic and hope...

    How would America react in the 1930s-40s if they discovered the British forged their entry intro WW1?

    I've been rewatching Deep space 9, a great sci-fi show, probably the best one in the 1990s, in one famous episode (which would probably make Gene Rodenberry spin into warp 10, had he not been cremated) after a long and grueling conflict and on the verge of defeat, In this alt timeline, the...
  10. WI: Several things went wrong between US and UK starting at the end of Civil War up to start of Great War, how does this impact US view on WW1?

    AN: Plot bunny wouldn't go away but not sure I wanted to try a TL, decided to post as a question instead. Basically, with the TL of events that follow below, how does this impact the US stance towards the Great War? Does it make them more likely for true isolationism or do they take a harder...
  11. Artillery vs. Fortifications prior to WW1

    I'm curious about the relative development of fortifications and artillery in the years leading up to World War 1 mainly for the European powers. I am not very well-versed in military technology, but it's my understanding there was an interesting dynamic or arms race between fortress-building...

    AHC: French Plans For Post WW1 Europe

    map links to the Wikipedia source. So, this thread claims this is what france wanted out of a best-case scenario in world war I. assuming everything starts the same, 1914,, Belgium, etc, how do we get this for them? I imagine a more hawkish US would help, perhaps Jutland goes bad enough Britain...

    Rear Admiral Sir Horace Hood survives the Battle of Jutland

    As I was working on some more of my naval fiction stories recently, I was once more sidetracked (as one inevitably happens to be) by reading again about Rear Admiral Sir Horace Hood who was lost when HMS Invincible blew up at Jutland. Looking through his career history, he appears to have been...

    Plausability check: post ww1 entente-american war

    Could a war between the USA and the entente be brought about in the immediate aftermath of the first world war, over a dispute over the freedom of the seas for instance?

    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...

  17. 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!
  18. 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...
  19. 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?
  20. 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...
