  4. WI: RMS Titanic collides with SS New York during departure.

    The collision with the iceberg would be butterflied away. After that either hospital ship or troop transport in WW I. If she isn't sunk in WW I, she resumes her career as an ocean liner in the 20s and 30s. Best case scenario is that the decision to scrap her is preceded by WW II erupting in...
  5. Gersdorff Suicidebombs Hitler, Goering, and Himmler, now what?

    Threadmarks: Chapter XIV: War on Terror and Upheaval in the USSR, 2003-2004.

    It's been a week since the last update, so I figured I'd post a new one. Chapter XIV: War on Terror and Upheaval in the USSR, 2003-2004. Worried that the instability might return upon a withdrawal of their troops, the Kremlin decided on an occupation for an indeterminate amount of time even...

    Threadmarks: Chapter XI: Renewed Arms Race, Specter’s Domestic Agenda and the Zaire War, 1997-2000.

    That's correct. The butterfly effect sets in motion a series of events that result in nothing eventful happening at Chernobyl's nuclear power station in 1986. Having said that, it's time for the first update of the New Year: Chapter XI: Renewed Arms Race, Specter’s Domestic Agenda and the...
  13. After the Assassination of Gerald R. Ford - a TL

    Not a minority government, but a coalition government. The British first-past-the-post system usually means one party wins an absolute majority and gets to form a government. On rare occasions, however, no party wins a majority and that leads to a coalition. In this case a coalition of Labour...

    Threadmarks: Chapter X: Social-Democratic Revolution, Renewed Space Race and the Yugoslav Civil War, 1992-1997.

    It all came down to the number of helicopters. IOTL too many choppers suffered from technical issues, making Eagle Claw unfeasible. ITTL there were more helicopters. Anyhow, I thought I'd post an update for Christmas. To make it more readable, the Yugoslav situation is covered in a separate...
  15. What If These Two Warships Met In Combat

    Not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but Yamato vs USS Montana. The latter was intended to deal with the largest Japanese battleships, but ultimately she was never completed (and would probably have proven superfluous). If circumstances had been different, how would a surviving Montana-class...

    No replies? I hope a fresh update can change that! Chapter VII: Détente and the Middle East, 1983-1989. Kennedy was a proponent of renewed Cold War détente, hoping to reinvigorate the détente that been initiated under Nixon and upheld by Ford as well as Rockefeller whereas Reagan’s tone had...
  19. What other countries could have been 'Koreanized'?

    Good one, the Soviets could support the Tudeh Party in a revolution in the aftermath of Operation Ajax.
  20. What other countries could have been 'Koreanized'?

    IMHO, the US either manage to overthrow Castro or they don't. I don't see how the island could be partitioned. What I could see is a regime imposed by the US facing a lengthy communist insurgency.
