  1. Retain as much European colonies as possible

    Without becoming an ASB, which European colonies could be held realistically to this day with a POD after 1945. I've thought of these: Portugal: Cabina, Timor, Macau, Cabo Verde, Sao Tome & Principe Spain: Bioko Island Netherlands: Dutch New Guinea, Suriname Britain: Cyprus, Malta, Hong Kong...
  2. Broken Britain, Apathetic America;What happens to S.Africa, N.Z. and Aus.?

    To lay down the scenario, Britain has been reduced to having it's Royal Navy destroyed for the most part, and is now a vassal state of Germany. Germany was able to win this conflict by allying with Russia, annexing Austria-Bohemia, etc, and focus its efforts on Western Europe. After one war in...
  3. South Africa AHC

    Lets say we go with a POD of 1815 can we get South Africa to control all of Southern Africa by 1945? https://i.imgur.com/4yASv5R.gif Basically OTL Union of South Africa plus Zimbabwe/Rhodesia Botswana Lesotho and Swaziland Mozambique south of the Zambezi Bonuses if: Namibia has more Germans...
  4. If the USSR is defeated and the US is neutral, what is Britain's strategy?

    Assume a scenario in which the Soviets have been defeated (Germany annexing Russia up to the Urals) and America is neutral (no Pearl Harbour and no subsequent flashpoint which brings them into the war), but more than willing to provide Britain with any funding or supplies (Lend-Lease, etc.)...
  5. Andrew Boyd: Duke of Dank

    AHC: Have the Commonwealth drive on the right.

    What would it take for the UK and its empire to drive on the right side of the road like in most of the rest of Europe. BTW: This is also the same scenario for Japan.
  6. AHC: Have the German, British, and Russian Empires be allies in a war roughly equivalent to WW1

    Inspired by the fact that, at the time of WW1, the King of Britain, Kaiser of Germany, and Tsar of Russia were first cousins.

    What would an alternate name for Maine if absorbed into the Canadian Confederation? (UPDATE)

    If somehow the British were to take possession of a land in what we know now as Maine from the Treaty of Ghent after the War of 1812 and and later absorbed into the Canadian Confederation, what do you think it would've been called?
  8. DBWI: Working on an Anglowank Novel

    OOC: This timeline takes place in a world where Ireland is basically TTL's British Empire when it comes to the world domination thing. Even non-Irish Celtic culture was more prominent, with Brittany being considered one of France's great culture centers, as opposed to the rather poor and...
  9. The Bleak Epoch: Part 1 Chapter 1 "Maiming the British Lion"

    The Bleak Epoch Timeline, though very much a WIP, stretches from 1920 to beyond the 37th century. The Bleak Epoch (Epoch for short) officially has been in development for over a year now but has roots that are older. Currently Epoch is broken up into six parts, each focusing on a particular era...

    AHC: WW2 ends in a stalemate

    Your goal is to find a way for the Second World War to end with the Axis and the Allied Powers stalemated. Italy and/or Japan may or may not survive, but Nazi Germany needs to exit the war as a great power, alongside the United States, the British Empire, and the USSR/Soviet Union. Which would...
  11. Alternate History of Britain: Britain a 21st Century Superpower

    POD: The UK demures from entering The Great War in 1914, against the wishes of David Llyod George and Winston Churchill. However, a compromise is made where David Llyod George and Winston Churchill are tasked with building an Imperial Defence Force, as a deterrent against any possible attack...

    Could japan realistically conquer british raj?

    During ww2 the japanese offensive u-go sought to capture northern burma, forcing the allies back into india. The japanese command seemed to have some weird reasons to invade india, so if the japanese won a decisive victory at imphal, and broke into india what would happen? I honestly doubt the...

    WI: Hawai'i becomes a British protectorate

    In 1843, due to claims that British citizens with in the Kingdom of Hawai'i were denied legal rights, the British Empire would occupy the Kingdom of Hawai'i for five months. Historically, it ended with peaceful negotiation and diplomacy by the Hawai'ians, but what if, in an alternate timeline...
  14. AHC: Confine the Industrial Revolution to Britain

    Up until the 1850s, industry hadn't really spread out of the British Isles to anywhere else in Europe and your mission, if you choose to accept it, is keep things that way - prevent Continental Europe and the United States from industrialising for as long as possible. Some initial ideas: (1)...
  15. Plausibility of Venezuela falling into the German or British sphere

    During the early 20th century, Venezuela had a series of border disputes and debt issues with many European governments, notably Germany, the UK, Italy and the Netherlands. I want to ask if you guys think it's possible that one of this crises could lead to heavy European influence on the...

    Development of the Internet and Intermodal Containers By A Stronger and Longer Lasting British Empir

    In a world where the Empire remained strong and stable, (Why? I don't know, perhaps no intervention in WWI to start) would it have funded people and projects that could lead to an earlier form of the Internet (primary incentive being faster and safer communication across the Empire in a way the...
  17. In a CP victory scenario, will there be a WWII?

    Most CP victories involve a German victory in Europe and an Entente victory in the colonies, so let's start with that as our set-up. The war is over by 1919, the Septemberprogramm has been enforced in Europe, establishing German dominance on the continent, yet, in Africa and the Middle East...
  18. The Militant Doberman

    WI: “It’s just a prank, Bro!” snowballs into a World War?

    Some of you may be familiar with Horace Cole, an early 20th century Cambridge student who was friends with Virginia Wolf and her brother Adrian Stephen; history remembers Horace as the man behind the “Zanzibar Hoax” and the “Dreadnought Hoax” when he fooled government officials and the British...

    How would the colonisation of Australia be different if it were settled by the Māori?

    So ignoring how they conquered it, Māori from New Zealand settle some coastal areas in Australia. By the time the Europeans arrive the coast from Melbourne to Sydney, Flinders Island, King Island and the northern coast of Tasmania (the rest remains almost unchanged) has been settled by Māori...
  20. AHC: Boers win Second Boer War

    With no PoDs prior to October of 1899, how can the Boer Republics have survived annexation by the British Empire for at least another decade?
