    "They say the sun never sets on the British Empire. They will soon learn a lesson that Icarus knows all too well." -Tomoyuki Yamashita Buildup Following their successes in China, the IJA decided to temporarily rest and upsize their military rather than continue a rapid expansion. Military...

    AH Plausibility Check: Federalized Commonwealth

    Hi all, since the recent passing of Queen Elizabeth II, I’ve been learning more about the monarchy and the commonwealth. I saw a video by J.J. McCulllough in which he said that he knew people in Canada who thought that because the British monarch was the monarch of Canada, the UK, and other...

    WI: Post-WW1 U.S. mandates over Armenia and the Straits?

    IOTL, Britain planned to offer the United States mandates over Wilsonian Armenia and the Turkish Straits post-WW1. These never came to be, but what if they did? How would this affect Turkey, the Entente, and the rest of the world?

    Dystopian British Empire victory in the ARW TL recs?

    Something like We’ll Meet Again (I would kill for a saved copy).
  5. Timeline Planning: The Rise and Fall of the British Empire

    Back last year I made a thread questioning what would happen if the collapse of the British Empire was more analogous to the fall of the Roman one . Lately I've got back to thinking about it, and now mean to actually start planning it out. As I'm not too experienced with writing timelines like...

    Dutch Ceylon into the modern days

    Okay, so meanwhile I asked MANY, MANY, MANY question about Dutch history. I am already bush with my TL called Oranje Boven which I will continue later, but I want to make a smaller TL like a kind of pause in this. A TL in a chronologic form in which I write which happens per year, possibly with...

    Treaty of London, 1814

    So in 1814, the Netherlands and Britain signed the Treaty of London about the return of former Dutch colonies to The Netherlands, colonies occupied by the British during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. I read an article about the signing of this treaty, in which was suggested that...
  8. WI: British Mediterranean Empire?

    What if Britain had formed a Mediterranean Empire as close to the borders of the Roman Empire or Ottoman Empire as possible? Or even the Macedonian Empire. Britain already had bases such as Gibraltar, Malta, Cyprus, and once had Minorca. Ionian Islands were also a protectorate. Egypt...

    Second Golden Age for The Netherlands

    What if not The Netherlands got the former Austrian Netherlands but another country, I would say Austria. Would The Netherlands in this scenario get back all there pre-1795 colonies, or would they get the same colonies as in OTL. And furthermore three questions: Would the Dutch still got some...
  10. the Imperium of Canada

    In the unlikely event of a late British entry into the American Civil War, could the United States unambiguously win?

    So most 1860s Third Anglo American War discussions and TLs usually go with a PoD in 1861 or 1862, such as the ever-popular Trent Affair escalates premise. Usually the conclusion reached is that the United States simply loses or is forced to make a separate peace with the British for a whole...
  11. Best case scenario for the 1857 Sepoy Rebellion?

    IOTL the Sepoy Mutiny was a huge but ultimately disorganized revolt that, lacking a clear leader or even a common goal, was eventually defeated in detail after the British retook Delhi in September 1857. Suppose that the rebels get a few lucky breaks in an alternate timeline, leading to this...
  12. Elphinstone's army isn't massacred?

    The Massacre of William Elphinstone's army during the 1842 retreat from Kabul was, relatively speaking, one of the worst disasters suffered by the British military: 4.500 British troops and more than 10.000 civilians were driven from Kabul and were either killed or captured by Afghan tribesmen...
  13. Britain takes the Cape in 1781?

    During the global conflict Britain was mired in during the early 1780s (including the American Revolutionary War), London organized a fleet under the command of George Johnstone, whose orders were to invade and conquer the Cape Colony from the Dutch. Unfortunately for them, France found out...
  14. Consequences of Britain losing India in the 1850s?

    Suppose that the 1857 Sepoy Mutiny or whatever is TTL's equivalent of it is much more successful than OTL, completely expelling the British East India Company from the Indian Subcontinent by the end of the 1850s. The how is irrelevant here, only the end result and its consequences. So? India is...
  15. AHC/WI: Peace in 1940: Consequences for the British Empire and Asia (in general)

    Hi again. So, I was thinking about a "plausible" scenario of a German victory in the Second World War. So one of the premises is that Churchill dies and the order for the BEF to withdraw comes a week or so later than OTL, which means that the Germans are able to cut off and capture the majority...

    If the Belgian Revolution never happened, would WW1 still happen?

    So basically this: If the Belgian Revolution never happened and the United Kingdom of the Netherlands stays alive, would WW1 still happen, or wouldn’t it because of the butterflies?

    The Boer Wars, an alternate history

    I’m thinking about a scenario in which the Belgian Revolution never happened. But I was thinking: what will happen to the Boers, the Great Trek and the Boer Wars if this occured. With a Belgian Revolution which never happens, the United Kingdom of the Netherlands stays alive and become a...
