    Proposals and War Aims That Didn't Happen Map Thread

    "Quite a few pre-1948 Zionist proposals, and a few British ones too, have a Jewish state that stretches all the way up to the Litani river in South Lebanon. These maps are also from Flapan’s The Birth of Israel." Never heard of the last one, somehow.

    It would be cool if you included one variation on Nanyue, missing territories in Champa but extending across Guangxi and Guangdong.

    Southern Carinthia goes to Yugoslavia after WW1

    Southern Carinthia was not economically important, and regardless the Austrians already lost a lot of land so it's not like it would be the sourest wound.

    Most likely alternate post-WWII countries created?

    A classic: Italy gets split between a neutral socialist north inheriting the partisan legacy and a southern monarchy with uncannily familiar militarist attitudes and a lot of mafia influence.

    AHC - Make the Back‐to‐The-Land Movement as impactful on the USA as the Civil Rights movement?

    When the idea of hippie farm communes caught on, most fertile agricultural land in America was already in the hands of propertied farmers or expanding agribusiness conglomerates. As a result, commune-builders were left with the land that was not considered attractive to the former group and...

    What alternate history ideas you wish they were used more often?

    For the love of god, we need more people to acknowledge South America's existence.

    What becomes of Allied Italy if the Central Powers win?

    The Red Week was an explicitly anti-war demonstration led by anarchist and socialist workers, so i have no idea where you got that notion from. It also runs in contradiction to your previous paragraph, as well as the bulk of historical evidence.

    AHC: make an "ugly rights" movement popular

    Communism and gender equality? Anyone who knows anything of history knows that great social changes are impossible without feminine upheaval. Social progress can be measured exactly by the social position of the fair sex, the ugly ones included. (Marx to Louis Kugelmann, 1868)

    WI: Alawite Breakaway State in the Syrian Civil War

    Different Eastern Border of Europe?

    Apparently the Urals weren't widely adopted as the eastern border of European Russia until the 19th century. Many earlier mapmakers considered the whole Caucasian isthmus and the lands east of Moscow and the Don to be a part of Asia, which perhaps shifted due to settlement patterns. Avoid having...

    What other countries could have plausibly renamed themselves in the 20th/21st centuries?

    Depends on what you mean by "Arab" in this situation. Most Sudanese might be Muslims and speak a dialect of Arabic but there's plenty of stuff to set them apart from the rest of the Arab world. If the Gold Coast can rename itself Ghana despite not even being in the same land as the old empire...
