  1. W.I. Hitler dies fighting?

    Joseph Goebbels said in a radio broadcast the Fuhrer died fighting the Russians in the Battle of Berlin, yet what if he did? He was, Hitler, that is, was not in the best frame of mind for at least 6 months before his death, would anyone have stopped him going to the front line? He was by many...
  2. WI. Cold War 1930

    Right chaps Lets say the Soviets win the Polish war and the Hungarian and Romanian soviets are successful in those countries. That brings us to, lets say, the end of 1922. No doubt the Baltic States will ask for 'help' and Stalin will be only too willing to give them just that. That bring us up...
  3. WI. Anglo-French Panama Canal?

    As the French had, lets say, had bitten off more than they could chew and had no money left what could have happen if the UK had stepped in as a partner? Either the UK government or a private group, like shipping and rail companies. The US would be put out, but by then they couldn't have done...
  4. WI No V-2 but more and better V-1's?

    The amount of time, money, effort and resources wasted on the V-2 program, was let's say not good. So lets say it was never started, or more likely closed down (early 44?) when it was known it wasn't going be anything like as good as when first thought. Instead work is poured into upgrading the...
  5. WI France Partitioned/Split after Waterloo

    France had been a right pain to most of Europe for nearly 200 years before Nappy was finally defeated at Waterloo. If the countries of the 6th/7th Coalition make sure they will never do it again, what happens. Now how many countries could there be in place of France? I'm thinking four each under...
  6. Stalin dies on...

    An easy one, well, most likely not! Stalin dies on one of the following dates and how things may play out. Every thing is the same up to these dates. 15th Sept 1939 22nd June 1941 2nd July 1943 29th Jan 1945 I should things will be not so good for the USSR, who may take over, and how long...
  7. Tactics of the US if it invades Canada 1890

    Some ideas about this would be nice. Why this happens doesn't matter for the question Given the size of the US armed forces in the late 19c, an army of about 15,000 and a navy of 6 modern ships how badly does it go. Lets say a path towards war has been building up for a 6-9 months. This the US...
  8. WI Japan Only Invades the DEI's?

    Instead of going to all the bother of fighting everyone and losing as soon as the first shot is fired, The Dutch East Indies are the only target? This will not stop the US and UK from joining in somewhere down the line, yet 100,000's of men will still be able to fight in China and maybe win once...
  9. WI Germany Attacks NY in Dec 1941

    WI the Kriegsmarine manages to shell New York city, the port more so in the few weeks after war is declared. Now I'm not taking about taking a fleet with battlecruiser's and the like. Say up to 6 Type IX U Boats stand off at 6/7 miles and blast away with their 10.5 SK C/32 guns at night. These...
  10. WI. A Canal Between Lake Michigan and the Illinois River?

    As the title How hard can it be? The Suez Canal was opened in 1869, the first Welland Canal, Lake Erie and Lake and lake Ontario in 1829 and second in 1848. How about a POD of between 1855 and 1870 for a large ship canal to be finished by 1885. Type about this for a bit:)
  11. The RAF, just that little bit better in 1940

    Am not talking about an all singing, all dancing, smash the Germans in 10 days, but, a small step in the right direction. Little things like, The Merlin 45 being ready in mid 1939 and being retro fitted in the Mk I Spitfire by early 1940, therefore giving the RAF a MK V, and a MK VB in summer...
  12. AHC Anglo French War

    Your mission, if you chose... With a POD after the end of the Second Boar War and before the out brake of WWI have the UK and Empire fight the French Empire in a full scale war. What POD is needed? Who sides with whom, if anyone? How and where would the French fight, as they have no real...
  13. WI No Gettysburg Campaign

    The Gettysburg Campaign of 1863 is what many consider the turning point of the ACW, after which the South had no chance of winning, if they ever had at all. So, if after Lee wins the Battle of Chancellorsville he just moves up towards Washington and holds there. Therefore making the Union come...
  14. Did Norse and Danish ships have names

    Not too sure if this should go here, if the powers that be, think it shouldn't... As the title says, did 'Viking' ships have names and if so any idea what would be named after. Gods, places, girls? Any help would be nice.
  15. WI. France wins the Franco-Prussian War

    As above. It does matter how France wins, it's that they just do. Questions about what happens later, more than anything else. Does Napoleon III remain Emperor and the Empire carry on through his son? Does German unification still happen, or I if does how long does it take? Do the Danish...
  16. WI The USA Kept £sd?

    Official money in BNA was £sd before 1783, even though Spanish silver was used quite a bit, after all silver is silver if the weight is the same. But what if they stuck to the same type of money they had before. No kings head of course, but the same system. Even now the US still uses imperial...
  17. Elvis Doesn't Die, What Does He Record?

    As above, really. Let's say he dies, of retires at aged 70. These are the songs he may well have covered IMHO. In no real order What a Fool Believes (Doobie Brothers) Crazy Little Thing Called Love (Queen) I Love Rock 'n' Roll (Joan Jett) Eye of The Tiger (Survivor) I Just Called to Say I...
  18. WI A later war of 1812

    Quite simple. Lets say the trials and tribulations that lead up to the war of 1812 happened 5 years later. Would the US risk a war in the first place, and if so how badly could it go for the US? Type about this for a bit.:)
  19. Spain wins the Spanish-American War?

    What happens within the US and it's foreign policy if they lose, or at the very least take a very long time, 2 years plus, to beat Spain? How Spain wins is not the question, lets hand wave it for this question. Type about this for a bit.:)
  20. WI. Harold does not come south

    After winning the Battle of Stamford Bridge, Harold legged it south and lost at Hastings just 3 week later. But WI he waits for the Bastard maybe a little north, or south of London. How could this play out?
