    What about: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strategic_Defense_Initiative Or the various proposals to turn the Sahara into rainforest?
  2. How much did IJA vs. IJN rivalry hurt the Japanese war effort?

    Obviously...the question is whether a more cohesive inter-service relationship could have made the Pacific War more difficult for the Americans and if so how much.
  3. Instead of launching Gettysburg Campaign, Lee relieves Vicksburg

    What would have happened if instead of launching the Gettysburg campaign, the Confederates took a defensive stance in the Eastern theater in order to send forces to help relieve the pressure on Vicksburg? They must have seen the the pressure Grant was building on Vicksburg a mile away, couldn't...
  4. Glossary of Sealion Threads

    Doesn't seem to be a huge disparity in strength between the British home fleet and the combined European Axis navies, provided there was some way for the Italians to break out of the Mediterranean, if the Axis prioritized it.
  5. Which nation is or will be the great civilization of the southern hemisphere?

  10. WI: Soviet-Japanese war... in 1940?

    What are the Japanese going to do against a country with 20,000 tanks? Did the Japanese even have a heavy tank design?
  11. Which is more likely: CSA Victory or Nazi Victory

  13. Glossary of Sealion Threads

    If the Germans delayed Barbarossa, and were really intent on invading Britain what was to stop them from consolidating gains on mainland Europe and simply outproducing the British in airpower and either bombing them into oblivion or taking command of the skies and seas that way?
  14. How does WWII go down with an Allied Italy and an Axis Soviet Union?
