  1. Stupid Luck and Happenstance, Thread III

    Poor dear, died before her time... literaly. Otherwise a nice call back to the older chapters... and a reminder that a reread might be in the cards.
  2. 8mm to the Left: If Hitler Died in 1923

    First, thanks for the answer. Now for some explanation, it is more the disconnect from the whole reopen a Bank implying a rather comfortable middle / upper middle class position with the whole proletariat vs burgoise struggle in favor for the proletariat... It makes it hard for me to belive that...
  3. 8mm to the Left: If Hitler Died in 1923

    I have a bit of a disconnect here. The scene with the family makes little sense to me. Not the jewish part, that is imaterial here, but the whole set up. They talk about reopening a Bank and are openly Socalist with, to me at least, communist leanings... uhm, well could someone explain why they...
  4. Without the Italo-Turkish War, does WWI still happen?

    Reading the "Background" part on wiki here, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italo-Turkish_War it seems to me it would be less "stopping Italy by diplomatic pressure" and more not edging Italy on... so well not a good start. There afaik were also some points on this in the "Sleepwalkers" and how it...
  5. Zimmerman denies the telegram

    Imo, you brush the USA contribution away a bit to much. But that is only my opinion. The entry of the USA allowed Imo the "unlimited" material faucet to be opend. That granted the Entente the possibility to keep figthing the "rich mans war". Again that is only my opinion and I am more than happy...
  6. Zimmerman denies the telegram

    Because as far as I know it was all legal. Maybe an overreach but still within the law. And as soon as the war would be over... poof goes the power. And also very important, Hindenburg and Ludendorf did not depower the Reichstag and the other institutions. So the moment they had the possibility...
  7. Zimmerman denies the telegram

    Thanks for the clarification and new info, for me at least. But my post was more for a hook for a TL were Germany acts a bit more inteligently in this and plans for a possible leak and has a story in hand for why it send the message. What ever follows was not mentioned by me. If as positioned...
  8. Zimmerman denies the telegram

    Depending on, if the Telegram in question was already in Mexican hands, one could create a narative it was a test of transmission security and integrity of codes. So if the message is not yet in Mexican hands it could be argued that it was a "Sting Operation" by the Germans to tarnish the...
  9. Stupid Luck and Happenstance, Thread III

    Nice last chapter that got me thinking. How is the difference, if there is one, between the German Empire and the USA in this TL in regards to race relations? Because it seems to me after the last chapter that the USA is somewhat... lets call it painlessly on the way of OTL. So without OTL's...
  10. Stupid Luck and Happenstance, Thread III

    It sounds as if someone is trying their "Stupid Luck and Happenstance" at writing a story... So how long until the Films / Series starts appearing in story... (or RL)
  11. A better High Seas Fleet for WW1

    Very true that. The USW was a very bad decision with hindsight. Imo they should make the questionable British practices more prevelent in the news... like ram orders or the use of auxiliary reserve ships of the RN as civilian liners in wartime (that even transport war relevant cargo). Not to...
  12. A better High Seas Fleet for WW1

    I have to strongly disagree here. If the Grand Fleet is sunk or decimated, it spells the end for the biggest stick the Empire had in keeping the neutrals... well neutral. As in keeping quite and accept the British actions that were on shaky legal ground. Another point would be that lenders see...
  13. A better High Seas Fleet for WW1

    Interesting speculations going on here. My thinking for this would be that a restructurinig of the HSF command structure would be one of the "low hanging fruit" that could change things up from OTL. As that was a mess. Other things that Imo would not overly influence the British would be...
  14. Stupid Luck and Happenstance, Thread III

    Could you point out where those "EU" treaties create something analog to OTLs European Union that could give out subsidies? Because I read it as a treaty that creates a legal frame work and some enforcement for those. But not something like the EU.
  15. Stupid Luck and Happenstance, Thread III

    Gah, ... I don't have time for a reread right now... This TL is simply too long to keep everything in mind. Otherwise, @Rinasoir thanks for the responses. And I hope 2024 treats you well. Hopefully we could get a actual picture of the situation in Europe regarding the realations between the...
  16. Stupid Luck and Happenstance, Thread III

    Would the LoN need to compel the two sides? Imo it could be trying to bring the two sides together and find a solution. Not rule it on one way or the other. They may try to assume that role if they get the taste for it... but I have not seen enough of the LoN to say one way or the other. Maybe...
  17. Stupid Luck and Happenstance, Thread III

    I am not versed in the rules / laws of Ireland in that regard. But my thinking was, that should the Church / Vatican block the lawful orders, then Kennedy could call the LoN for arbitration. How they would react to that... well...
  18. Stupid Luck and Happenstance, Thread III

    I seem to remember that the LoN is still a thing in this TL. Or at least it was for a longer time. So could they try to grab the extra national jurisdiction on that? How successful and all that I let our great and productive wordsmith decide.
  19. What else could Germany do with the resources used in the naval race with the UK? What should they have used them on?

    If you mean, who designed them? (One word posts are hard to decipher...) I think, but am not sure, that it was a group effort of various design staffs... so as far as I know it was not one singular person.
  20. What else could Germany do with the resources used in the naval race with the UK? What should they have used them on?

    One of the Myths of history, this. Hugo Boss did manufacture the Uniforms. He did not design them.
