  1. No World War Two Soviet Asian Offensive

    At the Tehran Conference in 1943, Stalin agreed that the Soviet Union would enter the conflict against Japan once Germany was invaded. This resulted in an offensive that started on August 9, 1945. The attack over the following three and a half weeks resulted in Soviet occupation of Manchuria...

    What were Oda Nobunaga’s ambitions?

    Oda Nobunaga. One of the most famous men during the Sengoku Jidai. From his home province, he manage to expand, and unify most of Japan, defeating the Azai, Asakura, the Ikko-Ikki, and the Takeda. He almost succeeded in unifying most of Japan, before he was assassinated at Honnō-ji, by Akechi...
  3. AHC/WI: Greater Asian colonial migration into Africa.

    So usually discussions on here around immigration and Africa, the discussion revolves around Europeans migrating into Africa in larger numbers. However less talked about is the movement of Asians into Africa during the colonial period. The point of this thread is to discuss how more of this...
  4. WI: The US loses the Korean War

    In OTL, the Korean War ended in a stalemate which persists to this very day. What if, though, the US and South Korea outright lost to North Korea in 1953 like how the US lost Vietnam in OTL around 1973. Thoughts?
  5. What if the 1930s-40s Japan was less brutal

    So, I know that the Japanese of the 1930s and 40s often floated the idea of Asian decolonization around backed up by catchy slogans like “Asia for the Asiatics” and even creating the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere (Dai Toa Kyoeiken) but it was all, of course, a farce. In reality the...

    AHC: Another Christian majority nation in Asia.

    I was thinking about how the Philippines is the only Christian-majority nation in Asia. As well as how it contrasts to the number of Christian-majority nations in Africa today. With that in mind, what would it take for another Asian country to get a majority Christian population?

    WI: No Antiochus III?

    Antiochus III was basileus of the Seleucid Empire from 222 BCE until sometime around the 180’s. When he ascended to the throne, his empire was in disarray — there was unrest in the Persian and Median satrapies under the rebel leaders Molon and Alexander, Parthia and Bactria were nibbling at the...

    Oda Nobunaga unites Japan...Now what?

    Oda Nobunaga was a powerful Daimyo, who was one of the three Great Unifiers of Japan, but his ambitions were cut short, as he was attacked and died at Honnō-ji, along with his eldest heir, by his seemingly loyal retainer Akechi Mitsuhide. What if instead, Akechi Mitsuhide never betrays Oda...
  9. AHC: The Black Death killed 90% of people in Eurasia

    Another challenge of mine (muahahaha), so what if a particularly virulent and fatal strain of the Black Death evolved in the grasslands of Central Asia prior to its spread across Eurasia, maybe the genome of the bacteria was changed by a few base sequences or so. By the mid 13th century, the...
  10. Good POD for a Meiji Korea?

    I wanna have a aggressive Christian Meiji Korea for my Timeline. How do I do that?
  11. AHC/WI: No "axial age"?

    How do you think would it have been possible to butterfly away the various religious and philosophical movements of Eurasia that happened in the 1st millennium BCE and led to the development of philosophy, modern religions, and the ancestors of modern states, in fact how could it be possible to...
  12. WI: No Kushan Empire

    Between 30 and 375 CE, a significant portion of Asia* were under the control of the Kushan Empire. What if this empire was never founded? What kind of historical impact would this have? * I wanted to just say South Asia, but the Kushan Empire also held significant territory in Central and East...

    WI: Large-Scale Asian Immigration to the Thirteen Colonies?

    What if, with a POD of 16th century and 18th century, what if the British (Possibly by the EIC) import Asian Immigrants, to increase the makings of products that usually come from Asia. Chinese immigrants imported to the Thirteen colonies for porcelain and ceramic products production, and...

    Second World Problems: A Soviet Timeline

    Hi, this is my first ever alternatehistory.com timeline, I hope you like it. The idea behind this was to create as many new states in the former Soviet Union as possible, semi-realistically, without changing the general course of history very much. There are various points of divergence, the...

    Possible sites for procuring Asian slaves in the 17th century?

    I'm brainstorming an alternate timeline about Asian slaves in America. As other users pointed out in threads about Asian slaves, there are difficulties obtaining slaves from Asia due to many factors like tech level, cultural reasons and other things. To make the long backstory short for the...

    WI: An Easternized World

    The world we know today was built off the back of Europe. For much of history, outside of some trading, the Western and Eastern worlds were relatively separate from each other, and about pulled even in technology, though China certainly had the upper hand in that field. Then gunpowder went west...

    WI: Trans-Pacific Slave Trade

    In the honor of having a holiday nearer, I decided to make a revival based on the first successful thread which was WI: Asian Slaves in 16th Century America. I didn't want to necro the thread because I feel it had already run its course. The hypothetical timeline when Christian missionaries and...

    AHC make the Lanfang Republic survive

    The republic of Lanfang was a state established by Chinese miners on the island of Borneo. It was one of, if not the first republic in East Asia and possibly the first modern democratic republic in the world. OTL Lanfang was conquered by the Dutch in 1884. Can you keep them independent for...

    WI: Beiyang Victory

    The warlord era is frequently overlooked in the interwar era. What if the Zhili or Fengtian cliques were able to defeat the KMT and other factions? How would this affect China, East Asia, and the world? Would Japan still invade China or would it leave it alone?
