  1. M79 replied to the thread Effects of Russia Winning the Russo-Japanese War?.

  3. M79 liked Taxationistheft's post in the thread WI: WW1 happened in the 1860s/1870s over German unification?.

  4. M79 liked MetternichDidNothingWrong's post in the thread WI: WW1 happened in the 1860s/1870s over German unification?.

  5. M79 liked Lampiao's post in the thread Islamic Basques.

  7. M79 liked MetternichDidNothingWrong's post in the thread WI: WW1 happened in the 1860s/1870s over German unification?.

    Austria minus Bohemia would have a very hard time waging war on anyone. Cisleithania (and therefore the Habsburgs) would be much weaker...

  8. M79 replied to the thread Islamic Basques.

    Perhaps an Albania analogue emerges - a Muslim majority area amidst very Christian neighbors. If this holds we might see increased...

  9. M79 replied to the thread WI: WW1 happened in the 1860s/1870s over German unification?.

    Britain was divided about joining the ACW. Those who considered intervention wanted Russia as part of the group but Russia refused. UK...

    The distillation system itself is affected - even if the tanks are intact you've got only a limited supply of fresh water. Per the OP:...

  12. M79 liked Andrew Boyd's post in the thread DBWI: Cape Gauge is more widespread..

    IIRC, New Zealand actually did built some 3ft 6in gauge lines to serve places where the terrain made 4ft 8.5 in gauge too expensive....

    Might Jai Alai become a lot more widespread in this case?

  14. M79 liked Zheng He's post in the thread Combined Fleet destroys USN at Midway? Effects?.

    That's what will make it a great TL.

  15. M79 liked Athelstane's post in the thread Combined Fleet destroys USN at Midway? Effects?.
