  1. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Charles Curtis huh? A pretty cool guy in Kaiserreich but who knows how he'll do here, especially with that tax cut. That his election is described in a book about the makings of WW2 is rather unnerving though. My guess is that Curtis is going to adopt a foreign policy that puts the USA on a...
  2. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Great so instead of the New Economic Policy the USSR gets another2 years of civil war. That's not going to be good for their economy. Mass anthrax and gas attacks would kill a lot of people, but that alone doesn't cause the extreme destruction of records that has been hinted at.
  3. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    ATL naval treaties, a classic! That was a close run for the USA accepting it alright! I admit I have trouble truly appreciating it, but this must have taken a lot of research and planning! It seems that overall it's similar to OTL, though more permissive in terms of battleships. Am I off? I am...
  4. Dreams of Liberty: A Failure At Princeton

    Yup anything with that narrow a margin will be contentious alright.
  5. A Horn of Bronze--The Shaping of Fusania and Beyond

    Huh. While most of Fusania we've seen gets Japanese exonyms, it seems that California instead will mostly see Chinese colonization. Wonder just how strained the Japanese-Chinese relationship will be. Cool to see how one can get water even in a harsh drought. But dang, at 3-4 liters per 100m^2...
  6. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Or France/UK doing something stupid. And as we've seen from the start of the TL, American historians can be rather creative in terms of who they blame for starting a world war.
  7. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Hmm- in OTL there's a lot of contention about whether Germany actually couldn't pay the reparations, or whether they just refused to pay and destroyed their own economy by hyperinflation in their hubris. But in TTL it was mentioned German records were destroyed in WW2, so it would be much harder...
  8. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Poland, perhaps. Though I doubt losing Poznan and the Gdansk corridor is that crippling. But Germany gave up no land to Czechoslovakia, save perhaps a few tiny corners of Silesia. Czechoslovakia is almost entire comprised of land previously under Austrian rule. Sounds like Germany's rather...
  9. If You Can Keep It: A Revolutionary Timeline

    This is a lovely timeline. The frequent snippets of modern-day media looking back on things really make this very immersive. But damn, what happened to the USA is dark- at seemed we had a fair chance at an America home to some relatively egalitarian traditions, and now that fuckwit Andrew...
  10. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Ah, nationalism at work. That said, very interesting that taking Polish ethnographic claims at face value is seemingly an uncontroversial take in-universe. Something nasty definitely went down at some point.
  11. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    So it seems that the Polish Soviet war went mostly as OTL, albeit with a more exhausted poland settling for just its ethnic boundaries. Is the appeal to Russian nationalism historical though? If not that i can see this being the starting point of some serious NazBol awfulness. Seems the...
  12. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Oh shit, are we going to get a competent Fascist Italy? This is going to be brutal. But at the same time, they ARE more wrecked. Curious what the impact on Italy's war against the Libyan natives will be. The Bolsheviks are weaker here, but one reason Poland couldn't hold Kiev in OTL was that...
  13. Of lost monkeys and broken vehicles

    Oh my- Barbarossa going off without the Allies being completely pushed off the continent will have FASCINATING impacts I bet.
  14. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    I guess hoping for Armenia to survive was foolish... though, with the Turks already getting beaten down by Greece, what will become of Western Armenia? Might the Bolsheviks try to (re) take Kars to ensure the Turks can't walk away with any land as "victors"?
  15. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Huh, seems we might not get a naval treaty in TTL, or at least get it much later than OTL. Between that and Britain's worse finances, it seems that the Royal Navy's rule of the waves will be quite contented. As for Japan, they'll be stronger but I worry this naval race will wreck their economy...
