  1. Further Exploring the Draka Series

    I'm creating this thread to raise discussion topics, speculation, and questions about Stirling's Domination series that might not merit individual threads. Is it ever mentioned in the Draka books if there are any Jewish Citizens, excluding a handful of post-World War II refugees given Metic...
  2. Strom Thurmond Becomes President After 9/11

    In November 2000, Republican incumbent Slade Gorton narrowly defeats Maria Cantwell and wins another term as US Senator from Washington. As a result, Republicans retain a narrow Senate majority with Dick Cheney as the tie breaking vote when Jim Jeffords defects to the Democrats in the summer of...
  3. Trying to Find Old Fallout Related Election Map

    I remember coming across a map some years ago that depicted an election in the New California Republic from the Fallout universe. The map showed the NCR divided into various states and described the political parties as well. I've used several different search terms, but came up with nothing. I...
  4. WI: Woody Allen Enters Politics

    What if Woody Allen entered politics? While him becoming elected President seems extremely unlikely, I could see Allen running as a protest candidate for Mayor of New York City or perhaps for his Congressional District in Manhattan. Presumably he would be a very liberal Democrat, though perhaps...
  5. Austria Does Better in 1737-9 Turkish War

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russo-Turkish_War_(1735%E2%80%931739) What if Austria had performed better in their 1737 war against the Ottomans, so that they kept their previous gains from the Turkish Empire especially Belgrade?
  6. Merry German Prince-Real Alternate History?

    I was reading Frederick the Great's Wikipedia article last night and came across a reference to an alternate history story concerning him: However, I cannot find any other reference to this alternate history story on Google, nor is it listed on Uchronia. Was this an online work with very...
  7. Imperial Japanese Army vs Royal Italian Army

    To clarify, this thread isn't really intended to set up an Italian-Japanese conflict in the mid 20th Century just because they have almost no overlapping spheres of interest or points of conflict. Instead, I wanted to explore the relative qualities of the IJA and Fascist Italy's Army in a...
  8. More "Ethnic" Presidents in 20th Century

    The 20th Century, especially the postwar era, saw numerous second-generation ethnics rise to prominent state and local level offices in American politics. These included Irishmen (Tip O'Neill, the Kennedys ofc), Italians (Mario Cuomo), Greeks (Michael Dukakis), Jews (Ed Koch), Bohemians (Richard...
  9. US Ground Operations in China in WW2?

    How plausible would it have been to have sizable contingents of the US Army and Marine Corps supporting Chinese forces against the Japanese military on the Chinese front in World War 2? Would such operations have produced a more favourable situation for the KMT in the postwar period?
  10. Austro-Hungarian Colony in North Africa

    With a POD of sometime after 1867 and the establishment of the Dual Monarchy, how could you get an Austro-Hungarian colony in North Africa? Seems to me one potential scenario is a more outward looking Austro-Hungary seeking to justify its fairly sizable navy as well as pursue a pan-imperial...
  11. Question about Pakistani Military Logistics pre-1971

    Not sure where to ask this but this is an odd logistics question that I've seen little explanation of up to now. Given that Pakistan before Bangladeshi independence consisted of two non-continguous areas how did the Pakistani military move between them, especially since it seems they deployed...
  12. No Drug Wars in Mexico/Weaker Cartels

    With a POD of after 1945 or so, how do you minimize the bloodiness of the Mexican Drug Wars as well as the power and influence of that country's drug cartels? I do prefer more plausible and limited divergences rather than something along the lines of the US suddenly ending the Drug Wars and...
  13. Hitler Captured as POW in WWI

    What if Hitler was captured by the Allies during combat in the First World War when he was serving in a Bavarian regiment and remained a prisoner for the duration of the war? Would this make it less likely for him to believe in a "Stab in the Back" myth or at least prevent his involvement in...
  14. AH Characters IOTL

    As the title implies, this thread asks what the leading characters from alternate history works would have done in IOTL. TL 191: Jake Featherston Irving McDowell Hosea Blackford Flora Hamburger Gordon McSweeney 1984: Winston Smith O'Brien Julia Emmanuel Goldstein "Big Brother"
  15. Roy Cohn Still Alive

    Suppose that Roy Cohn didn't became HIV positive and subsequently die of AIDS in the 1980s, instead remaining alive to the present. Would Cohn's continued survival (assuming he still remains mentally active and capable) have any larger repercussions on American society, especially in his...
  16. AHC: Ronald Reagan (D) vs Jimmy Carter (R)

    How could you arrive at a Presidential election where Ronald Reagan is running for President against Jimmy Carter...but the former is a Democrat while the latter is a Republican? With an early enough POD, keeping Reagan as a Democrat is relatively easy given he was a New Deal liberal who...
  17. Third Term for Truman

    Suppose the DPRK never decided to invade South Korea or the Korean War ended on a much more decisively victorious note with full reunification under Seoul without Chinese intervention. Either way, Harry Truman decides to follow in the footsteps of his predecessor and run for a third term in...
  18. AHC: More of Europe Experiences French-type Demographic Transition in XIX Century

    Here's a reverse of some of the other recent what ifs posted regarding France experiencing higher population growth during the 19th Century. What if, instead, other European countries especially those with relatively high levels of socioeconomic development such as the UK, Germany, and the Low...
  19. More Devastating Black Death in China

    Kim Stanley Robinson's Years of Rice and Salt removes Europe from world history by having the Black Death kill about 99% rather than 50-60% [1] of the continent's population. What if the reverse occurs, where Europe is still devastated by the Black Death at OTL levels but China and neighbouring...
  20. Best case scenario for China with a post-1931 POD

    What is the best-case scenario for China with a POD of sometime after the Mukden Incident of 1931? A common scenario is, of course, Chiang's KMT regime defeating the Communists and leading China on a path similar to OTL South Korea and Taiwan. But others, of course, have disputed this on the...
