  1. Anarchy Unleashed: A Robot Wars Timeline

    Right I am sick of trying to write hopelessly epic timelines where the fate of the world hangs in the balance. [And accidentally closing tabs where my post is.] So I am trying something simpler... ANARCHY UNLEASHED: A ROBOT WARS TIMELINE All right slow down, what is this all about...
  2. The Dogger Bank War

    This is a timeline I have had in the works for a while but which is now in a semi-ready form (any corrections/critique is of course welcome and will probably be written into the final version, which I will post in Finished Timelines). The timeline starts in 1904, when the Russian Baltic Fleet...
  3. Slipping the Net

    SLIPPING THE NET: A TALE OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION by teg Inspired by this thread: https://www.alternatehistory.com/discussion/showthread.php?t=268440, by SpanishSpy, although it will not be a direct copy of the scenario proposed in that. Cornwallis Slips the Net 1781. For the...
  4. Why did Somalia fall apart so badly?

    Lots of countries have had civil wars, in recent years this number has grown to include Libya, Nigeria, Angola, Mozambique, Chad and Sierra Leone. Yet none of these countries have had such a comprehensive collapse of government authority as Somalia and I'm curious as to why this is. Was the...
  5. Idea for a timeline: Need advice

    Basically I read something that Meadow wrote a while back about wanting to see a timeline where World War II is fought against a communist Germany and is followed by a Cold War against a fascist Russia. I was just wondering what everyone thinks of this timeline that I've sketched out so far...
  6. The Meon Valley Railway Take II

    Or my latest futile attempt to write a timeline. :(:o -- The Meon Valley Steam Spectacular- September 2011 The Meon Valley Railway would like to invite you to its 2011 Autumn Steam Gala. Running from Friday 16th to Sunday 18th, the Steam Gala will feature all the engines which are...
  7. Above the Line

    Okay, this is my latest in a long line of attempts a timeline. I have just finished my essays for uni (one of which was connected to this subject vaguely), so I might have some time to actually do proper research and stuff like that. The PoD of this timeline is that the Missouri Compromise...
  8. How could the Bouclier have won the Decades of Darkness Great War

    I know this should go in DoD technically, but I think it is a big enough question to warrant its own thread. Basically, the title says it all. Bonus points if it involves Russia remaining neutral and more bonus points if you can make a scenario where the Bouclier wins a OTL World War I style...
  9. A World to Win: A DH mod

    Has anyone else heard of this mod. It was made by a guy called Bean1 on Paradox Forums. It effectively has a more succesful communist movement with Britain (:rolleyes:) and France being taken over by fascist governments along with southern Germany and Austria (which is of course Nazi). What...
  10. WI Mary Tudor is really pregnant

    What if instead of suffering a 'phantom pregnancy', Mary Tudor in fact really becomes pregnant and gives birth to a healthy child (girl or boy)? Bear in mind that Mary is most likely going to die before this child becomes much more than a toddler, so England is in for another child monarchy...
  11. AHC: Herbert Asquith stays as PM

    With a PoD no earlier than August 4th 1914 (so the First World War must start) keep Herbert Asquith as prime minister. Bonus points if the Liberal party remains a major power in British politics after 1922...
  12. Military in a CP world

    One thing that really annoys in Germany wins WW1 timelines is that frequently they do not take into consideration how military tactics would have changed as a result of this. For all intents and purposes, the Allies in 1918 were using a primitive form of blitzkrieg (with artillery standing in...
  13. The Meon Valley Railway

    I don't think we've had anything like this before... The Pre-Preservation Era Taken from A History of the Meon Valley Railway by Ted Barker The Meon Valley Railway was built at the start of the 20th century to connect the market towns of Alton and Fareham in Hampshire. Completed in 1903...
  14. No megafauna extinction in the Americas

    What if the megafauna of North America did not die out? Would this allow the Americas to develop quicker (animals that can be domesticated etc) and actually be able to challenge the Europeans when they arrive (assuming history remains on track for the most part)?
  15. Was there ever any chance of Barbarossa suceeding?

    The title pretty much says it all? If there was no chance of Barbarossa suceeding, then how far would you have to push the PoD back for the war to be succesful?
  16. Japan as a colony

    What if instead of managing to modernize succesfully after the collapse of the Shogunate, Japan had instead disintergrated and one or more of the major European powers had decided to take over the country. What effect would this have on the 20th century and which countries would be likely to...
  17. The Germans don't screw up their atomic research program

    What would have happened if instead of making a serious miscalculation which threw off their research (I think it was something to do with thinking only slow fusion bombs were possible, when they weren't possible themselves), the Germans followed the same path as the Americans with the Manhattan...
  18. France wins the Franco-Prussian War

    What if France had managed to hold off Prussia in 1871 and remain an empire? Would this has stopped the unification of Germany and what sort of World War I (if any) would have occured?
  19. A Phoenix From the Ashes

    while back I did a TL about what would have happened if Germany had won the First World War. Unfortunately that has died a death, so I am going to do something different and a bit more modern (the PoD is in 1930, instead of 1917). PoD: Hitler is assassinated in 1930 by a German communist. As...
  20. The British Mount Rushmore: Who would be on it?

    Let's say someone in Britain decides to create a monument to the four greatest British PMs ever. Who would be on it? Here are my frontrunners (although not the final choice): Winston Churchill William Gladstone William Pitter the Younger David Lloyd George Clement Attlee Benjamin Disraeli...
