  1. What's the best deal France can make and take at Versailles?

    That was never an option against the then backdrop of nationalism, power politics and war.
  2. WI No V-2 but more and better V-1's?

    Yeah, this is sort of the key. Anything Germany can do, the Allies can do faster, better and in far more quantity if they want.
  3. What's the best deal France can make and take at Versailles?

    Bring Germany into the tent, instead of trying to keep them out. It could have some success, but the Depression is going to hit Germany hard and reparations are going to be a key part of that.
  4. What if Neo-Nazis took over East Germany in 1953?

    What? Why? Why would they devastate a key economic area? A few columns of tanks would crush any uprising with relative ease and leave it mostly intact.
  5. WW2 WI: Only a Northern Pacific Offensive/Campaign

    You are also leaving the Philippines and Australia out to dry here.
  6. What if Neo-Nazis took over East Germany in 1953?

    The USSR was overwhelming strong, in every sense of the word.
  7. What's the best deal France can make and take at Versailles?

    A tougher line? Not sure how that is politically possible against the OTL backdrop of Bolshevism.
  8. AHC: make republicanism the dominant form of government in medieval Europe

    How about the reverse? A far more through destruction of the Roman heritage? So complete that the new 'barbarian' tribes rely more on their own traditions of mass meetings and general assemblies?
  9. What's the best deal France can make and take at Versailles?

    I mean, the sad truth is, France is never going to compete with a united Germany. Ever. They still can't, just nowadays that means slightly less favorable economics and not troops marching through Paris.
  10. Spain joins the Axis: Effects on the Battle of the Atlantic

    Would Portugal fall so easily?
  11. If Italy was neutral during WWII, what concessions would the allies be willing to give up to bribe them to join their side?

    Might that also mean thr Soviet Union is stronger after a weaker Barbarossa?
  12. AHC: Prepare Alaska and Hawaii for Pacific War

    Is this what the federal government is doing or what the state itself is doing?
  13. Dystopian Pre Industrial Societies/States

    Early Protestant Geneva.
  14. U-56 downs HMS Nelson with Churchill aboard, 31 October 1939

    What terms would Hitler have even offered? It isn't like he is giving France back, and no faction in the UK is going to allow a Nazi dominated Channel coast.
  15. Q: Who voted for the Nazis?

    Middle class white collar folks, if I recall.
