    Most plausible WW1 German Victory?

    WW1 seems to have been a fairly even contest. It seems like the war could have gone either way. What would have been the most plausible victory for the Germans in WW1?
  2. Is it possible for German Pacific Colonies during WW1 to survive past 1915?

    I am currently writing an Alt History scenario. I wanted to know how long the German Pacific could last realistically, specifically past 1915. What changes would have to be made to OTL to cause this for this to realistically occur?

    AHQ: Interesting endings to WWI?

    World War I alternate histories are very fun to read, although there are a lot simply looking at a Central Powers victory, a stronger victory for the allies, or a basic stalemate. But what are some unique endings that aren't one side victory or a stalemate. For example Germany winning on one...
  4. WI: 1914 Entente Victory but Belgium 'Let Them Pass'

    Great War history is not my forte so I'm not sure if this is possible. But, assuming everything goes comically wrong for the Central Powers, and everything right for the Entente--perhaps with earlier PODs resulting in a better prepared France and Russia--I was wondering if this scenario is...

    How would the Ottomans and Austria Hungary collapse after WW1 in a Central Powers Victory?

    What would be the countries they split into, how much longer will they last before falling apart, what would the borders look like, What impact would this have on the rest of the world?

    German supreme command (OHL) in an alternate WW1

    If the Central Powers go East first in WW1, how would the supreme command (Oberste Heeresleitung, OHL) look and develop during the war? Will Moltke still form it with Falkenhayn, or will we get Ludendorff still in? And will Hindenburg still play a role in the German army, because he retired...
  7. PC: No WW1, a Cold War with poison gas instead?

    Supposing that the tensions that led to WW1 still exist but there's no spark to set everything on fire, would it be possible for there to be an atmosphere similar to that of the Cold War, with poison gas taking the place of nuclear weapons?

    Africa in Central Powers Victory.

    In a TL where the Central Powers do win WW1. We have a pretty good idea of what happens to Europe but what be the border changes in Africa? Will there be no border changes? Some colonies becoming independent countries? Will decolonization happen in this timeline?

    Best POD for CP victory in WW1?

    WW1 is an incredibly fascinating time period, as it was seemingly a more even conflict that could have gone either way that had long lasting consequences. However, I’ve never been able to find any good PODs that give you a Central Powers victory. What are some of the most plausible PODs that...

    WI: The Republic of China Joined the Central Powers?

    OTL, the republic of china was one of the latest additions to the entente, declaring war on Germany and Austria-Hungary in August 1917. By that point, both had seen most of their colonies in the area taken by the Japanese or British, though China did clear out Tientsin and Hankow. However...
  11. Ottoman Empire joins WWI later. Effects within OE? Fate of Armenians?

    In the "mild CP victory" TL I'm working on, I'm having the Ottomans join the war later than OTL, in late February/early March. The sole purpose of this change is the delay/lessening/prevention of the Armenian genocide. With more favourable weather conditions, the Turks don't suffer such a...

    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...
  16. Central Powers seek peace jointly in Autumn, 1918. What happens to the Ottomans?

    Present is the following scenario: A-H doesn't launch the 2nd Battle of Piave, instead it chooses to strenghten its defences behind the river and also send a few divisions to the Balkans to aid the Bulgarians. As a result, neither the Italian, nor the Balkan Front collapses, however the...

    WI: The Netherlands joins Central Powers

    What if in an alternate timeline, The Netherlands joined the Central Powers during World War I, and the Central Powers managed to claim victory in the war. What would the Netherlands gain? Would they gain territories in Belgium or in Asia or Africa, or would they gain territories somewhere...

    White and Central Powers win?

    I’m currently working on a Central Powers Victory scenario in WW1, in which the Central Powers focused on Russia first, defeated Russia in 1916 and after that focusing and defeating France. But my question is: in this scenario, what would have happened to Russia? Would the Russian Revolution...
  20. PC: UK-Ottoman-Italian-Japanese Alliance after a Central Victory

    If the Central Powers win WWI, how likely is it for the UK, Italy, the Ottoman Empire, and Japan to make up an alternate Axis in this tl's second world war? What I had in mind was that the Ottomans thinking that they didn't get the spoils they should've and behave as Italy did, Britain seeing...
