1938

  1. WI: Beria purged

    Lavrentiy Beria is infamous as one of the most downright loathsome people to ever be part of Stalin's inner circle (which is quite the achievement, all things considered). There were hardly any mourners when he was executed in 1953. But he could very well have died earlier. Nikolai Yezhov, one...
  2. German vs. Czechoslovak Armour 1938

    In a scenario involving a German invasion of Czechoslovakia in September 1938, which side had the edge in armored forces? For the purposes of this discussion, both sides are starting with the units and tactics they had OTL October 1, 1938. Tanks, armored units, commanders, and tactics are all up...
  3. Panic Submachinegun 1938

    Poor little Ruralia bears neighbours rattling sabres during the 1930s. She realizes how out-dated her infantry small arms are. Ruralian Coast Guard and anti-smuggling police have a variety of foreign-made pistols and sub machine guns , but some are wearing out . American, British, Czech...
  4. Panic armoured car, 1938

    Poor Ruralia - or Ruratania depending upon your dialect - starts hearing rumours of neighbouring armies re-arming in 1938. Currently, the Ruralian Army/Federal Police/Border Patrol only have a handful of “beater” Rolls-Royce armoured cars to patrol their eastern borders. They primarily use RR...
  5. Panic anti-tank weapon 1938.

    Poor Ruralia is till recovering from the Great Depression, but already seeing neighbouring nations re-arm. The scariest re-armament is in a neighbouring nation to the East. Rumour has it that the neighbours are building tanks. Does Ruralia need a Panic anti-tank weapon in 1938? Ruralia was also...
  6. Case Green- A WW2 Alternate History

    Hey guys, this is my first time writing an ah timeline. The premise is that Hitler is denied the Sudetenland in 1938, so WW2 starts a year earlier
  7. WI Panic Fighter 1938?

    WI - during the late 1930s - you are tasked with designing an interceptor to protect your small country. You represent a second or third world Air Force - and you know that war is coming. You are a mid-level Air Force engineering officer or mid-level design engineer at the national aircraft...
  8. Chose a dual-purpose anti-tank and anti-aircraft

    POD circa 1938, you are the Armaments Minister of a small country. You see war clouds blooming and have read several predictions of what will be needed by 1945. Most of your armaments are WW1-surplus. You want to re-arm your artillery before war breaks out. Your small country can only afford one...
  9. 1938-Western demonstration of power

    Such POD require different leaders of France and UK because I can't see Chamberlain playing such game. But generally I don't find whole idea unthinkable. So what if in 1938 the West respond to German bluff with their own? In 1938 West is not ready for war, although Germans seemed to be better...
  10. Hitler exaggerate his demands in Munich

    WI Hitler decided to finish Czechoslovakia at once and demands not only Sudetenland bit also protectorate over rest of Czechia ( with excuse of protecting Germans from possible Czech repressions) and independence for Slovakia. He is determined to invade Czechoslovakia if his demands are...

    WI: The mob kills Joseph Goebbels and Hermann Göring

    In 1938, while visiting Italy, notorious gangster Bugsy Siegel apparently crossed paths with these two high-ranking Nazi officials. He would later quip that he wished he'd killed Göring when he had the chance. So, let's say Siegel had killed these two. What would the repercussions be for the...
  12. TL: Commonwealth of Three Nations

Chapter I: Prelude In year of 1936 Germany began to fan the flames of another war in Europe. Western democracies sought to avoid pushing their nations into war once more. They didn't...

    WI: No Munich Agreement, WW2 in 1938

    So, let's assume that Chamberlain dies early and is replaced by someone more war-willing, or is a bit less prudent. What then happens is that the munich agreement is never signed, and the franco-british governments threaten to declare war. Hitler, being a very bold and ambitious guy, still...
