  1. Austria in China...

    Hello, all. Looking for some suggestions about what region/citie(s) in China could conceivably belong to the Austro - Hungarian Empire if the Government had decided to follow along with the Great Powers. NB, for this situation to be plausible, I am going to suggest that the Empire already has...
  2. Alternate Frankfurt?

    The Franco - Prussian War had serious consequences for France, including including the downfall of Napoleon III. The only territory Bismarck demanded was the 'return'of Alsace, and part of Lorraine, as we know. However, I wondered: what would be the harshest terms possible that might be forced...
  3. Does the Sun Still Shine on Spain?

    In our timeline, Spain had a pretty bad time in the aftermath of the Napoleonic Wars: by the early 1800s, all of her holdings in the Americas were gone. Now, at least in the case of Mexico from what I remember reading, the colonial elite who were holding power got upset because back in Spain a...
  4. Russia, Poland, and Prussia

    Here is a question/alternate history challenge (sort of)/; How could Prussia retain or regain most but not all of her Polish gains from the 1793 carve up? I am envisioning Prussia somehow getting back South Prussia and New Silesia, but not New East Prussia, as somehow that seems like a little...
  5. Germans at the Volga

    As many are aware, there was a very large German population on the Volga river, which had its origins under Catharine the Great. Those initial settler colonies continued to prosper and grow, and under the Soviet Union were organized into their own SSR. With the German declaration of war...
  6. Pastries in the South Pacific!

    In the mid - to - late 19th century Austria - Hungary almost obtained the Solomon Islands from Great Britain; in the end, the traditional reluctance to engage in foreign adventures negated this possibility. Now, supposing that the internal situation allowed for a more confident foreign policy...
  7. Alt - Axis Powers Cinema

    Not sure if this has been done before, but I thought it would be interesting to post some alternate history movies from an Axis powers victory scenario. If this interests you, feel free to post for Germany, Italy, etc. If this has been done, oops! The search function does not work for...
  8. Delightful Detroit! Always Amazing!*

    *as read in alt - history travel brochure* So, I have an alternate history challenge for all you honorable denizens: Have Detroit remain (or become?) the pearl of the Great Lakes. Prior to the City's downfall, it was home to some of the most beautiful architecture and lavish neighborhoods...
  9. Can you Wank a Turkey Redux: a Different Destiny

    So having learned that the Ottoman Turks were utterly screwed in the First Balkan War (and thus, there was little to no chance of saving their remaining European territory), I would like to pose another question to the denizens of AH.com. In OTL, Enver Pasha dreamed of spreading Ottoman rule -...
  10. Can You Wank a Turkey?

    The First Balkan War of 1912 radically altered the political landscape of southeastern Europe, and while all the members of the Balkan League saw major gains, there was disagreement concerning who got what which led to the second Balkan War a year later. So, my question is, would it be possible...
  11. A German Tiger in the East?

    So this question is the result of a possible Central Powers victory. Provided that Germany keeps Tsingtau and her concession in China (Japan never invades, Japan sells it back, whatever), what happens with the city beyond being a port for the East Asia Squadron? Would it become a...
  12. Russia's Turkish Delight: Big Bulgaria

    The Treaty of San Stefano was signed by the Russian and Turkish Empires at the end of the Russo - Turkish war of 1878; in it, Serbia and Montenegro received their independence, as did Romania, and all received some measure of aggrandizement. The main point however was the creation of Great...
  13. A Fourth Balkans War?

    Poland and Romania enjoyed very good relations during the interwar period, and kept their border open to receive refugees during the German attack in 1939 (I don't know about the Hungarians, but I would imagine they probably did as well - this in itself is irrelevant to the suggestion at hand)...
  14. A Different Destiny in the East?

    The Versailles Treaty - imposed border with Poland in the East was a major cause of contention between the two countries, as many of us know. The decision to remove German suzerainty over Danzig and establish it as a "free city" was unjust according to the principles of self - determination and...
  15. What Would Happen If...Japan vs Germany

    Okay, now don't get mad... This is not intended to be a serious scenario by any stretch of the imagination... This is pretty much the wankiest Sealion thread of the Great War... But the ships of the Japanese and German navies have always been my "favs." Lately I began to wonder: in...
  16. High Seas Fleet as a Different Kind of Beast

    The recent spate of threads concerning Imperial Germany, WWI, and/or the High Seas Fleet have made me wonder if the Navy could have taken a different trajectory. As I say that, I am not suggesting that Admiral Tirpitz, Prince Heinrich, and Kaiser Wilhelm are going to change their minds about a...
  17. Caporetto more decisive wi?

    Alternate History Question: What would be the consequences if Germany and Austria had knocked Italy out of the War in 1917, following the Caporetto Offensive? Suppose that Germany had decided it was a necessary move to counter the French who began moving divisions to the south eastern front...
  18. Napoleonic Wars Question: Victory at Austerlitz?

    What would be the immediate and long term consequences to an Austro - Russian victory at Austerlitz? Could this turn back the French juggernaught earlier than otl, or "merely" secure more favorable terms for Austria (vis a vis their Polish territories)?
  19. The Eagle Grapples with the Lion

    Hello all: As many of us are aware, the German High Seas Fleet existed mainly as a fleet - in - being for the duration of WWI; Admiral Hipper held to the strategy of detaching portions of the Grand Fleet and defeating them in detail. Now, clearly we can see this did not actually happen and...
  20. A WWI WI? What if Kerensky has his finger on the Russian Pulse?

    Exactly as it says on the cereal box. The socialist government formed by Kerensky had the opportunity to form a truly responsible government. Although he was not able tofully get the support of the powers in Russia to form a stable government. However, the fact that he insisted on keeping the...
