  1. Map Thread VII

    Thats why there IS an ASB thread. Some of us dont want to see it!
  2. Ah Challenge: Italian unification led by the Habsburgs

    Well, yeah. It was the test lab for liberal reforms. Much easier to experiment there than in the Austrian mainlands. As poor Emperor Joseph had to find out.
  3. Kaiser Wilhelm I assassinated in 1878

    On his own? No. I think the main attribute of Frederick III in that regard is that he was somewhat weak willed. He will not push any liberal reform himself. However, different to his father and son he will not stand in the way of it, either. I think he would make a rather apolitical monarch, so...
  4. Ah Challenge: Italian unification led by the Habsburgs

    Hm. I think any "Italian-Nationalist Tuscany Habsburg" scenarios need the Papacy. After all, where is Tuscany going to fight against for Italy? Lombardy-Venetia? Not likely, theyd end up subordinate to Sardinia there. Said northern legations of the Papacy, or maybe even all of it, though...
  5. No Barbarossa

    Wasnt the "Ice Breaker" theory put forwards by a Russian? Not saying that makes it any more credible, but it doesnt seem to me as if it automatically has to be Nazi apologist.
  6. French Borders

    I meant the OP. I mean, I can understand if people havent heard of 18th century French expansionism, or havent heard about the French border during Revolutionary and Napoleonic times being the Rhine - but then using the same "natural border" nonsense terminology as French irredentists...
  7. Alternatives to direct intervention in Vietnam

    The problem with direct military actions against North Vietnam is of course China. I mean, they dont like Vietnam, but they like the USA being in Vietnam, and potentially at their border, even less. And bombing? How? It will either be highly ineffective, due to the Jungle and all, or so...
  8. WI: Föhr votes joining Denmark in the Schleswig Plebiscites

    Well, even our most... infamous Großdeutschland TL (if it can be called that) didnt go that far. And actually, even with so much territory there would probably still be a German majority, if maybe not by much. But, eh, Interwar Germany plus a "Thorn-Bromberg-Kulm corridor" to East Prussia, plus...
  9. WI: Föhr votes joining Denmark in the Schleswig Plebiscites

    Well, Ödenburg was not a result of allied policy. Thats the Hungarians fault. One could also name Bromberg and Thorn, at least at the end of the war - ten years later, few Germans were left there. But yes, it was a bit flagrant how Austria was forbidden to rejoin Germany, or how the Czech...
  10. Ah Challenge: Italian unification led by the Habsburgs

    And they were unpopular everywhere. Of course, it need not be so, but youd probably need a totally allhistorical Habsburg character. An openly Italian-nationalist Grand Duke (or heir) of Tuscany, for example. If its to be the main Habsburg line, well, that makes things a bit more difficult...
  11. WI: Föhr votes joining Denmark in the Schleswig Plebiscites

    It would be isolated enough for Föhr to be completely surrounded by German territorial waters. It gets interesting once Germany starts to build the Hindenburg Dam, really cutting Föhr off from Denmark, but unless its specifically stated otherwise in the treaties the territory between Sylt and...
  12. Things that look like alternate history, but aren't

    What? Hockey is a no-contact sport! ...oh. Ice hockey, that variant ;)
  13. How did each home nation contribute to the British Empire?

    Well, I think the OP meant for there to be no personal union, either, seeing as it posits Scotland as an independent actor conquering Ireland...
  14. How did each home nation contribute to the British Empire?

    Eh, I dont think lacking "contributions" are the primary matter. And such psychological profiling of entire peoples like Uriel did is quasi-esoterical nonsense. I think the main problem with divided British islands is that England would have a potential enemy at its flank. It would need...
