    Threadmarks: England Expects More.... CH 1-1

    England Expects More from Every Man.... This is a sequel to England Expects that Every Man.... from last year. It is implicitly assumed that readers have read that one, although I think this one could be read on its own – you just need to know that events have progressed on a different path...

    WI the High Seas Fleet Doesn't Mutiny in 1918?

    Ok, so we all know the ultimate outcome: the HSF is destroyed with massive casualties. They were outnumbered two to one and the British had a huge quality advantage as well. But what kind of damage does the Grand Fleet take in the process of killing the German Navy? How many ships will the...
  4. Dread Nought but the Fury of the Seas

    Rumours of War The assassination of an Austrian Archduke would trigger a war that had been building for years. However, as the echoes of the shots died away, it was not immediately obvious that would be a world war. The Great Powers did not react immediately; ‘We should not be greatly concerned...
  5. PC: Earliest All or Nothing, three turret RN Battlecruiser?

    The battlecruiser as a design and concept splits opinion. There are those who see them as a mistake and waste of resources in general and there are those who see them more of a missed opportunity. IMHO, the genesis of the battlecruiser makes sense, the need for a “super cruiser” to combat...

    England Expects that Every Man.... This is the beginning of a story I wrote a few months ago, and am re-editing. It will be a short confection, posted in tiny pieces as I have time to re-think the nuance and edit it. I have some ideas and I think it will be fun to roll them out. There will be...

    Threadmarks: Introduction

    Hello, I have decided to have a go at writing a timeline. Hopefully it goes alright! (on the other hand do not except to much or too regular updates) So, the plan is for a timeline set in the 20th century. I am British and so there might be a bias as to who get covered. I might also end up...

    What if Russia launches a surprise attack on Sweden in 1914?

    IOTL There nearly was such an attack against Sweden. There was an old TL about this but it ended prematurely a few years ago. The attack itself was to take place in the beginning of August IIRC right after Britain declared war. Sweden's Navy at the time consisted of alot of coastal defense...

    Lusitania Doesn't Sink

    I've been watching the Smithsonian documentary on the Lusitania and it got me wondering: what if the U-boat still fired, but the torpedo did not sink it? A shot from that distance, according to the documentary, had never hit. Anything could have gone awry in the shot. What would have happened if...
