    British find the massive gold deposits in Uganda in the 1920s

    https://www.mining.com/web/uganda-says-exploration-results-show-it-has-31-million-tonnes-of-gold-ore/ Assuming this extraordinary claim is true, Britain will have access to 12 trillion dollars in today's prices worth of gold. I expect the logistical technology, extraction, refinement, etc will...

    WI: Prince Frederick escapes to Britain?

    We're all familiar with Frederick the Great of Prussia. And by the modern times, we're all familiar with his homosexuality, and one time he tried to flee to Great Britain with Hans Hermann von Katte. However, they were discovered, and Frederick was forced to watch Katte get executed, only to...

  4. PC/WI - Russians enact the Duhamel Plan (Invasion of India during the Crimean War)

    The Duhamel Plan was the proposed Russian invasion of India during the Crimean War. It is… ambitious to say the least. The idea was to threaten the British-controlled India by invading through either Central Asia or Persia. The invasion force would consist of nearly 30,000 Russian soldiers...

    WI: Anglo-Mexican Alliance Against American Manifest Destiny?

    OTL, James K Polk was a fierce American expansionist and pro-slavery politician. He was, however, not exactly stupid, and while he sought to take land from both Britain and Mexico, chose to negotiate with the former- technically i think he wanted to with Mexico as well but they weren't...
  6. AHC/WI: the Ui Ímair/Ivar Dynasty unifies Britain and Ireland.

    Greetings! First, I'm just a amateur when it comes to history, and I'm still learning about Scandinavian, british and Irish history. However, I thought this scenario could be interesting. I already posted a similar thread a year ago (no one commented), but now I decided to post a slightly...
  7. Dutch Africa: An Alternative History

    So as we know, between 1612 and 1872, The Netherlands had a colony in West Africa, called the Dutch Gold Coast. In 1872, they sold this colony to Britain. But what if this never happened. What if the Gold Coast remained Dutch? Would The Netherlands participate in the Scramble for Africa and...

    The Galloway Plan gets implemented

    What if Joseph Galloway by some means or another was able to convince Parliament or the Founding Fathers or both of the Galloway Plan to ensure the colonials and royals interests were both protected? How would things look for the colonies and Great Britain and how would this effect the world as...
  9. Central Power Netherlands

    What if The Netherlands joined the Central Powers? Let’s assume a naval incident or something else, and as a result, The Netherlands join the Central Powers. Let’s say that in this TL Germany plays their ‘old strategy’ so focuses on Russia first, but Britain still join the war. Last but not...

    WI Native victory at Sitka Battle?

    What would have been the consequences of a Tlingit victory at the Sitka battle and/or successful resistance to the Tsarist expeditionary forces? Either that the Tlingits would have had able to secure their powder supply (without its transporters being blown away) possibly making them able to...

    Religion in a British America

    If the American Revolution did not happen, what would the religious climate of the 13 colonies look like? Would Anglicanism remain dominant in the South, or would Evangelicalism still become predominant in the South and the Frontier?
  12. Blue moon, a timeline inspired by the dark moon timeline where Britain and the commonwealth were the first to land a man on the moon.

    Hello all. I recently read the Dark moon timeline (which is fantastic by the way) and thought to myself, what if Britain landed on the moon. Of course there are issues with this. It doesn’t seem plausible that Britain would be able to launch, as this would require a launch site and a vehicle. At...

    British Invasion of Argentina, AD 1982

    Today, I learned this: "Although it wasn't public knowledge until 2012, Chile played a large, covert role in the Falklands Conflict. Without the early warnings provided to the British by the Chilean air force's radar network and the use of coastal air bases for refueling, the smaller British...

  15. Kingdom of California: A Timeline of British Colonization

    In a world where California was not colonized by Spain, instead it was colonized by Britain, as a second crown colony. Post American Revolution, immigration picked up, leading to a large, young population in the colony when we hit our POD. In 1810, Napoleon was in complete control of Europe...
  16. UK German peace in 1940

    What if Britain accepted Germany’s peace offer in 1940 and negotiations began for a final treaty to be signed. I think Germany would puppet the nations it conquered in Western Europe besides France. Alsace-Lorraine, Luxembourg and Eupen-Malmedy annexed by Germany. Possible return of...
  17. Operation Catapult fails the french fight back

    What if Operation Catapult failed. Here is the scenario. On the 29th of June Britain recognises Free France under De Gualle as the legitimate French government. This sends alarm bells around Vichy France. Darlan orders all french ships in British ports (southern England and Egypt) to return to...
  18. South African crisis in the 1940s between Afrikaners and British South Africans

    Background to this scenario. In 1940 Britain makes peace with Germany after the fall of France. One of the terms in the final peace treaty is the return of Germany’s African colonies it lost during ww1. Namibia a former German colony is now under South African rule. South Africa is a fully...
  19. Britain and France side with the confederacy

    What if Britain and France intervened in the U.S civil war on the side of the confederates. I think this would most likely mean the confederates win the war and become independent. Also without U.S pressure forcing the French to withdraw from Mexico, Maximilian most likely defeats Benito Juarez...
  20. Successful defence of Singapore and the Dutch East Indies during ww2

    What would happen if the Japanese failed to capture Singapore and the Dutch East Indies during ww2. Let’s say before Pearl Harbour naval assets are transferred to Asia and more troops start arriving in the area (mainly Indians and Australians). The defence is also beefed up with more artillery...
