    Pepsiman ('40s comic book)

    In late 1943, Pepsi-Cola teamed up with Timely Comics to create Pepsiman, an obscure superhero who deserves to be so. Pepsiman starred in a comic book that lasted one issue, where he goes around fighting crime and serving Pepsi. His archnemesis was one Sir Red, representing Pepsi’s main...

  6. Robert A. Taft elected as President in November 1940

    Suppose that in 1928, Roosevelt loses the NY gubernational election and Hoover is blown up by Argentinian anarchists, so the GOP replaces President Coolidge with a Curtis-Watson ticket, indirectly resulting in the Wall Street Crash/Great Depression occurring a full year earlier in 1928. Curtis...

    U.S.-Japan Pacific Cold War in the 1940s and when will it erupt into a war?

    This is scenario that's been in my head for a couple of times now. One thing I learned is that Japan wanted the United States to abandon the Asia-Pacific in order to respect its imperial ambitions. Of course, the Japanese messed up at Pearl Harbor and learned the hard way not to awake the...

    DBWI: Italy-China Fascist Alliance Doesn't Happen in WWII, What Then?

    As we all know, Mussolini's Italy and Chiang Kai-sek's China forged a major alliance in their efforts to protect their respective interests in Western Asia, as well as to ostensibly prevent Communist take-overs of allies and neighboring countries. The Anglo-Japanese Alliance was re-forged for...

    Operation Beleaguer leads to more American involvement in the Chinese Civil War

    Operation Beleaguer was a U.S. military operation in post-World War II China that oversaw the repatriation of Japanese and Korean nationals and the protection of American citizens and interests in the mainland. Since this was during the time of the resumption of the Chinese Civil War, the U.S...
  10. WI: Molotov-Ribbentrop War

    I had this idea for WW2 scenario in 1939. So let's say the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact never happens or it fails and the Soviets align with the British and the French in a negotiation which did happen in OTL. So in this alternate scenario for heavens sake have Germany invade Poland in August 1939...
  11. Ideas/Suggestions for a Realistic No WW2 Timeline?

    I'm thinking about making a timeline in which the 1930s balance of power is to some extent maintained. My thought is that the basic POD would be something along the lines of the Marco Polo Bridge incident not happening, or being successfully deescalated. (How likely would this be?) The secondary...

    Japanese Military in 1949

    Let's assume that MacArthur decides, for whatever reason, that retaining the relatively high paying jobs in Japan's military-industrial complex is vital to rebuilding Japan, and the Japanese military is reorganized into the Japan Self-Defense Forces in either late 1945 or early 1946, rather...

  14. Red Wave: A World Bathed in Crimson
    Threadmarks: Foreword

    Hello everyone, this is my first TL here, so please go easy on me. Red Wave: A World Bathed in Crimson asks the question, "What if the Soviet Union 'won' the Cold War?" Yes, I am aware that TLs that take place during the Cold War are a bit overdone here, but this period of history is my area...

    What Could the Allies Have Done to Stop the Holocaust?

    For decades, historians have debated just what the Allies could have done to stop the Holocaust. In your judgement, what actions could the Allies have taken in order to end (or at the least limit) the atrocities committed by the Nazis?

    Could the British Tories Have Possibly Won in 1945?

    The British Election of 1945 is one of the most famous upsets in political history: despite Winston Churchill's popularity the Tories lost in a landslide. Was there any way the Tories could've won in 1945?

    Could a modern "traditional" society survives on the aesthetic sense?

    This is one of the most complicated things I ever tried to ask here, as it covers both ideology and sociology, so if even I cannot quite explain what I'm asking, I'm sorry if you have trouble understanding. Imagine the stereotype of the 1940s society, suits, art deco, smoking, chilvary (on the...
