  1. Count of Crisco

    Alternate Aircraft of Nations

    This is inspired by the long running alternate warships of nations thread and works fairly similar to that long running discussion. You can post your scenarios and alternate aircraft here, as well as post any basic questions regarding plausibility of certain scenarios, viability of aircraft...
  2. Canadian Military Pattern programme's fate in an Anglo-American Nazi War scenario

    As the title suggests, I'm interested to hear people's ideas as to the CMP Programme's potential fate, in the event that Nazi Germany A) knocked out the Soviet Union and B) secured hegemony over Europe west of the Urals, with the Second World War reigniting in the mid-1950s. @CalBear used lack...
  3. Count of Crisco

    A History of Alyska to the year 1900.

    Thanks to Covid I have had a lot of free time, and have spent it getting back into writing. Among the various projects I have been working on has been an alternate history setting, the timeline of which will appear here.
  4. Best "Alternative Fascist Powers in WWII" TLs?

    Hey there, guys. As the title says, I'm looking for well-written TLs about a WWII where other Great Powers are the Fascist aggressors. I already know of the "Fire Eagle/Snow Bear" TL on the old board (though, sadly, I haven’t been able to find a complete archived version of it, so I’d be really...

    No Battle of Okinawa?

    The Battle of Okinawa was an incredibly bloody affair which, similar to the Battle of Iwo Jima, has been subsequently questioned as to whether it was worth it. Just over six weeks after it concluded the first nuclear bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, three days later the second was dropped on...
  6. Browning M1919 GPMG

    After watching the Forgotten Weapons video about the AN/M2 "Stinger" machine gun a few weeks back, I've come to wonder why the US Military didn't try to adapt the M1919 into a GPMG. Army Ordnance clearly had the idea during WWII with the M1919A6, equipping the M1919A4 with a pistol grip and...

    Would have Manfred von Richthofen (Red Baron) support Hitler and the Nazis?

    Manfred von Richthofen, or most famously known as, the Red Baron, was German Aristocrat, who was a ace-pilot during WWI. He died during the war, pretty young (age 25), and didn’t see the future of Germany, and the failure of the Weimar Republic, and the Rise of Hitler and the Nazis. But what if...

    Next Timeline Survey

    Hello, you know when I said I planned to do part two of Empire of Freedom by centering in Britannia on the 20th century. I feel burnt out by it, instead I desire a interlude between the two parts of the timeline. I have thought of two options: Império Tropical By a small PoD where a young boy...
  9. How Much Longer Would WWII Have Lasted in Europe If...

    Romania didn't switch sides Germany didn't go on the Ardennes Offensive, and remained on the defensive on the Western Front for the remainder of the war This also means that Operation Bodenplatte does not happen Eugen Dollmann, Karl Wolff, and Switzerland did not negotiate with the allies to...

    WI: Loyal German intelligence service

    It is known that men like Oster and Canaris, as fierce anti-Nazis, have deliberately sabotaged the German war effort and Intelligence service during WWII. The underperformance of the German intelligence services compared to the British ones can be partially explained by it, in many cases giving...
  11. WI: George V had lived until 1946

    Basically, what if George V (somehow, I know he wasn't the healthiest of men) lived a decade longer until 1946?
  12. DBWI: The Germans don't kill George VI

    So, it has been nearly 80 years since King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, parent's of the current Queen Elizabeth, were killed in the Blitz, when the Luftwaffe bombed Buckingham Palace and they died a day after from the injuries. Now, what if the bombs didn't hit their wing of the palace or the...

    Alternate wives for Edward VIII?

    So, I'm currently in the research stage of a TL project I'm working on for the interwar period, with multiple PODs scattered around the place, and one of them hinges on one person in particular - Edward VIII. Now, most of us are familiar with his saga with Wallis Simpson and how his intent on...
  14. Canadian Military Pattern DUKW

    This idea was inspired by David Fletcher's book British Military Transport, 1829-1956, and an interesting point he made regarding the British Army and the DUKW. According to Fletcher, in December 1942 the British Truck Mission in Washington DC gave the Ministry of Supply's requirement for...

    Tripolar world after WWII

    Is it possible that the world could have been split into three mainstream ideologies after WWII? Capitalism, Fascism, and Communism. How do you picture the world? How much time would that system have lasted? I picture the Reich surviving and leading in Europe. That way there would have been...

    German victory at the Battle of Britain

    In 1940, during World War II, Germany and the United Kingdom fought the Battle of Britain. Do you think there is a way in which Germany could have won the campaign? And what consequences do you think a German victory in Britain would have had in the war? I picture this scenario: Germany defeats...

    WI: Hitler Killed in 1944

    When you think about it, it is a miracle that the assassination of Adolf Hitler failed. Hitler was very close to the bomb, and had the bomb been just slightly closer to him, he would have been killed that day. What would've happened had Adolf Hitler been assassinated and Valkyrie is executed...

    Rommel goes east, Model goes south

    Similar to another switcheroo I did a couple months back What are the consequences of the two German generals who spent much of their time feuding with their staff and leading from the front switching theatres?

    It's A Long Way To Nagasaki: The Anglo-Japanese War
    Threadmarks: 1. Off the rails and off the cliff

    In 1938 the world had two sources of tension. In Europe Spain was in the second year of its civil war and a embryonic Fascist block was coalescing around the Kingdom of Italy and the ever aggressive German Third Reich. A general European war was feared by all: As diplomats raced to defuse...
  20. Starting the USA Better prepared for WWII.
    Threadmarks: Prelude

    Ok, so for a long time I have been bugged by how badly unprepared for combat the USA was in 1941, and the horrible showing of our forces in the initial phases of the war. WWII started in Europe in sep 1939, so the USA actually had over two years to get sorted out before the shooting (at us)...
