    WI: No Bay of Pigs Invasion

    What if, instead of organizing a rag-tag group of Cuban exiles to invade Cuba and overthrow Castro, either Eisenhower or Kennedy recognizes the scheme won't work and they shut down the invasion plans? Would Castro still become a Communist and move into the Soviet sphere of influence? How would...
  2. A successful Bay of Pigs

    I have discovered this great forum recently. After reading a few of the great timelines created here I decided to start my own timeline at some point in the future (despite my insufficient english). My favorite period of history is the Cold War and I really like the idea of creating "my" Cold...

    AHC: BoP Succeeds, new Soviet Puppet?

    I've probably made about umpteen posts about the Bay of Pigs succeeding, but I don't think this specific question has ever been addressed. So let's say that the Bay of Pigs invasion had succeeded, and Communism was out of business in Cuba. What nation(s) would the Soviet Union most likely...
  4. Bay of Pigs invasion called off

    After my extensive research into the matter*, I've pretty much decided that the Bay of Pigs invasion had pretty much nil chance of success, so let's go a different route: what if Kennedy decided not to go through with it? *(consisting of watching some YT videos and vaguely remembering what I...

So let's say that some way or another, the Kennedy Administration was able to pull off the...

    WI: Successful Bay of Pigs Invasion?

    This has been discussed many many times on AH.com before, but often the discussion focuses more around the implausibility of the operation having succeeded, rather than the consequences of it having been successful. So, let's say that somehow it had succeeded. What would the consequences be? Who...
  7. DBWI : George Romero worked in the horror genre ?

    World-renowned director and Academy Award winner George Romero died yesterday at 77, in Toronto, Canada, following a "brief but aggressive battle with lung cancer". For those of you who are not cinephiles, George Romero is considered one of the best filmmakers regarding the description of the...

    Later Operation Northwoods?

    As most probably know, IOTL the US Department of Defense proposed a series of false flag terrorist attacks in the US (plane hijackings, bombings, and other forms of violent terrorism) that they would claim were committed by the Cuban government, as a pretext to invade. However, the Kennedy...

    WI: Castro seizes Guantanamo?

    What if, either in the aftermath of the Bay of Pigs invasion or during the Cuban Missile Crisis, Castro seizes (or tries to seize) Guantanomo Bay? Would he succeed in either scenario? How would the US respond? How would the Soviets respond?
