    Colonies under Western European countries turning Communist

    So, say that some of Western European countries like France, Spain, Portugal and Britain turn Communist in early 20th century. They don't need to all turn communist, just some of them. How would they deal with their colonies? Would it be more likely that the colonies would've gained their...
  2. Maximum Japanese territorial expansion in a CP victory TL

    I've seen a few threads here and there about Japan in a post-Central powers victory in world war I, but nothing concerning Indochina or a Japanese siberia in a cp victory, only in OTL. Standard USA doesn't join, German victory against Entente by 1918 post brest-litovsk via Spring offensives sort...
  3. A Better Post-WWII Italy & Rest Of The World
    Threadmarks: The Point Of Divergences : A Discussion

    One thing that I wonder is why lots of threads discuss just one POD instead of multiples. I for my timeline want to do multiples and want to know your opinions. Canada actually owns the Carribbean and Falklands when a jokes gets serious and taken to parliament and passes (barely) Rhodesia joins...
  4. AHC/WI: Sinicized empire in Indonesian archipelago

    As the title says, what if there's a Sinicized empire or at least a kingdom in Indonesian archipelago? Which of the Indonesian-based kingdoms you reckoned to be a good candidate to be one? How will it affects on the world as of result? The POD is after the fall of Tang Dynasty in year 907.
  5. How could have Japan surrendered before Germany?

    As the title suggests, what has to happen for Japan to fall before Germany?
  6. Post Colonial Studies Discussion : What Could Have Happened?

    I thought this would never happen, but one of my teachers actually brought up alternate history into the lesson, which is why I am starting this thread. I want to know your opinion on several PODs (how to make them happen, how likely it is for them to happen, what are the consequences) to make...
  7. 1944 The Deaths of Gandhi & Sukarno

    So, I was interested in Death in Tehran by @Thanosaekk and I thought to do something similar somewhat but considering I know crap about India and Indonesia I want to have a discussion, maybe have a collective work put together. I had planned to visit both India (Goa and Amritsar) and Indonesia...

    AHCWI: Spanish India

    Despite kickstarting the age of exploration with their Aztec gold and controlling the 4th largest empire in history at its height (then the largest by a huge margin), Spain didn't have much of an Asian empire. The Philippines were good for what they were, plantations and a stop on the way to...

    Descendants of the Dragons and Fairies - Volume I: One Inch Missed, One Mile Fixed
    Threadmarks: Prologue

    DESCENDANTS OF THE DRAGONS AND FAIRIES Prologue Vietnam as a country has quite a significant position in the history of the world, something that could be attributed to its geographic location, culture and proximity to many great powers. The South China Sea, where Vietnam is located west of...

    Second Korean War in 1997

    I just recently watched the film Murder at 1600 on TV. Part of the side-plot involves a USAF E-3 plane being shotdow over North Korea and the airmen being held prisoner. The hawkish U.S. military generals want to wage war with North Korea unless they handover the prisoners peacefully. However...
  11. What would the effects of an earlier Maritime trade between Asia and North America be?

    So, I did some researching and came across the existence of the Maritime Fur Trade between the Pacific Northwest of North America and Asia, with furs and other goods sold in China. This trade was pioneered by Russians working from Siberia, but I was wondering what would happen if a thousand or...
  12. Alternate colonial powers during Age of Exploration?

    Considering the trailblazers of the A of E in the OTL, I'd like to explore potential alternative candidates to those we know, and possible consequences of their endeavours. Firstly, the Americas: supposing some crises or series of unfortunate events stalled Spain or Portugal from exploring...
  13. WI Nanban trade evolves into a Trans-Pacific Slave Trade

    Hi everyone, long time lurker, new poster here! I want to preface this by stating that slavery and the slave trade are undeniably horrific acts. That said, both had an undeniable impact on history, particularly in the Atlantic world and I think examining the effects of a similar trade in the...
  14. 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...
  16. 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...
  17. 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?
  18. 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...
