    What other allied countries, territories, or dominions would have taken part in Operation Downfall?

    Most Operation Downfall scenarios either have the U.S. invade from the south while the USSR invades Hokkaido even with the lack of sealift. My guess is Britain, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and other British/Commonwealth territories or Dominions such as the Raj, Malaya, and Rhodesia would...

    AHC:More countries copy each other's weaponry

    With some exceptions, most ww2 countries did not copy enemy weapons that were indeed superior to theirs, unless it was after the war. I can see some events happening: Make the US adopt the MG-42 instead of waiting until 1958 for the m60 Germans get the AVS-36/SVT-38 during the spanish civil war...
  3. WI: Soviet-German-Chinese-American Axis versus Franco-Italian-British-Japanese Allies in WW2?

    While an Axis USSR is a very popular (if not outright overused) trope, there is little discussion about both USSR and USA being German Allies. So, here is my scenario: The first PoD is that Poles are even more successful during the Soviet-Polish war and manage to gain more land than OTL during...

    After The Red's Decisive Darkness, or, the Aftermath of Operation Downfall

    Spoilers for this particular paragraph: After reading Paul Hyne's/The Red's Decisive Darkness, I can't help but shudder at the effects of such wholesale destruction that it has brought. Alongside the loss of Modern Japan as we knew it - at least when concerning ourselves with that specific...

    AHC:Make the USA declare war on both sides during a World war.

    Thought about it and did on Hoi4, until my notebook basically almost blew up. What would both sides do?
  6. Extended WW2 TLs/books?

    Any good TLs/books that deal with a WW2 that starts early/lasts longer/mix of both? Preferably not an Axis victory, I've read enough of those but if anyone recommends a few I'll try them out. I did try the Blitzkrieg Alternate series, but I found reading it to be a bit of a chore. EDIT ON...

    AHC: America enters the European Theatre without Pearl Harbor

    Sorry if this has been done before, I haven’t been able to find anything with this situation, but is there a way America could enter the European front without without Germany declaring war on them after Japan attacked Pearl Harbor? What would be the effects of America being at war with Germany...
  8. Could Greater Finland survive a WAllied victory without the USSR?

    In a scenario where the USSR is defeated in WW2, but the Western Allies still defeat Germany years later (Finland is neutral again at this point), would they allow Finland to keep the territories it took from the Soviet Union? If it survives, the SU would be very weak, so I guess it'd be up to...
  9. Nazis standardize Wunderwaffe before barbarossa

    what if Nazis had standardized before the invading soviet union Heinkel and Messerschmitt series as fighters Arado Ar 234 B as bombers StG 44 as standard infantry rifle Tiger II as standard tank V2 as submarine weapons and long range artillery Fritz X as anti ship weapon ? how would this...
  10. The AANW but without the "warm war" period

    In the thread of The Anglo/American Nazi War there's a period of about 10 years after the defeat of the USSR where the Allies stop fighting Germany head on, only to reignite the war in 1954. This is crucial for the story and ultimately leads to a dystopian post-war world; but in real life...
  11. WW2: What could the British do if the USSR was defeated and the US remained neutral?

    In this scenario the US doesn't enter WW2 and the Germans reach the Ural mountains. This leaves the UK as the only enemy of the Reich. Can the British do anything in this scenario? Would they accept peace or just keep fighting in Africa and maybe harass the Kriegsmarine. I imagine the Germans...
  12. Second Sino-French War over Indochina

    POD 1934 long march fails completely CCP is eliminated Second Sino Japanese war still happens, KMT hold out until Japan is defeated and surrenders to USA , Chiang occupies japanese occupied china and He is allowed to occupy Indo China until French return as in OTL but refuses to withdraw since...
  13. WI: After Japan denounces the Naval treaties, the US withdraws and made changes to its initial builds (see post for details)?

    So I was thinking, what if after Japan denounced the naval treaties in 1936, the US said screw it and modified the plans for the NC class ships and instead based off their concerns for Japanese and German large cruisers/pocket battleships that were being built, decide to make the following...
  14. AHC/WI: Peace in 1940: Consequences for the British Empire and Asia (in general)

    Hi again. So, I was thinking about a "plausible" scenario of a German victory in the Second World War. So one of the premises is that Churchill dies and the order for the BEF to withdraw comes a week or so later than OTL, which means that the Germans are able to cut off and capture the majority...
  15. What would be an ideally prepared Japanese Empire for WW2?

    Besides resolving the IJA and IJN rivalry? Also it would be still Axis aligned.

    Most plausible WW2 stalemate scenario?

    Not asking for an existing timeline, but rather what turn of events (non-ASB) would be the most likely to lead to a stalemate or armistice between the Axis Powers and the Allies of WW2 and when?
  17. AHQ: Partification and position of the NSDAP after German victory in the Second World War

    German victory in the Second World War has been one of the more common and popular topics in alternative history; however, most, if not all relevant works focus on things like international politics or Hitler's succession. While these issues are in some way the crux of such works, they still...
  18. What if Hitler was a communist?

    What if Hitler was a communist instead of a fascist and joined the German communist part instead of the NSDAP? What if he still held his purity views but was economically left like Stalin?

    DBAHC: WW2 doesn’t spill over to Latin America

    South America, alongside Europe and Pacific islands and China, has been well-Known battlefield of WW2. So here is a challenge: With PoD of 1933, prevent South American theater from opening in WW2.
  20. What if Bismarck had the help of the Royal Navy?

    So I already have an idea for this and had started to write it but I still have I road block. So we'll some of you would think to make Britain fascist, I actually going to make Germany democratic and part of the Allies. But this leave me with a couple big problems. How do I get plan Z in...
