    To the Victor, Go the Spoils (Redux): A Plausible Central Powers Victory

    The German Naval buildup was never a threat to the British as hyped in the press, because Britain could (and did) swat the German Navy the moment it became relevant. The Freakout was engineered.

    Cue the French actually losing ground because Joffre is an idiot. :fingers crossed:

    Would Britain? IRL, Britain could accept the Naval treaty because their most direct rivals (Russia and Germany) had just gotten smacked down. Sure, France and the US, etc, were concerns, but Britain didn't need to maintain quite as strong an advantage over them given the context. ITTL, Germany...

    :cries in Flanders-Wallonia: 🤣 Britain gets to keep their synthetic country, I guess.

    Well, it is better than Britain wanted, and that's a good start.

    And yet.... If Germany pisses America off, America will declare war, immigrants be damned. Italian-Americans will just have to do the same thing German-Americans did OTL. inb4 Pizza gets renamed "Liberty Pie"

    Zepplins didn't prove to be very effective in WWI, as I understand it, for all that Alternate History has a hardon for them.

    And benevolent protection from the heretical Bolshevik socialists in the USSR.

    Let's not get ahead of ourselves. SPD may be less nasty than OHL, but I'm sure they'll be happy with all sorts of soft imperialism in the East.

    Until Every Drop of Blood Is Paid: A More Radical American Civil War

    Not really. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lictor Rome was perfectly happy for their elected officials to have bodyguards.

    it could be that Austria goes the way of the UK, with member states increasingly locally autonomous. Could be an eventual path to independence (as nearly happened with Scotland) and other dysfunction, but it could work.

    Well, yes, but that's not relevant to my point. The Croats were on the losing side, of course they get screwed. The Italians getting screwed in favor of Yugoslavia was just some weird serb-favoritism.

    The breakup of Austria-Hungary was as much imposed on the country by the Allies as something that the subject nationalities wanted themselves. Yes, many wanted it, but Trianon was really as much about punishing Austria and pushing for a very Wilsonian (and thus half-nonsensical) idea of national...

    Joffre might have been the best general Germany had, in the early years of WWI. 🤣

    Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Okay now I'm just baffled. I always thought Sanna would not be part of WWII on Hitler's side, given some of the previous hints, but now it looks like he's certainly too blocked off from working with the western allies now over this.

    If there's a single colony of Germany's Britain insists on keeping, it's German East Africa. also I would love to see him be Chancellor.

    Well, yeah, France is screwed in the long term, but Britain will try to prop 'em up.

    To the Victor, Go the Spoils (Redux): A Plausible Central Powers Victory

    True. But it depends on what Britain is willing to let Germany get away with. I could see Britain keeping the colonies *and* forcing Germany into a super-weak treaty. After all, really, what is Germany gonna do about it? Boner Law and the Conservatives certainly won't have the grace to not piss...

    Germany isn't going to be able to get almost any of their war aims in the West now, so it will be a mutilated peace for Germany in France/Belgium. Not unless Britain trades those for Germany's colonies, and Britain may just decide to keep those anyway because what is the Kaisar gonna do about it?

    I think you underestimate Venizelos, but he might not be able to drag everyone else with him if Italy goes for Albania.
