    DBAHC: Pro Entente America In GK?

    Otl, while the 1880s and 90s were difficult for American and German relations, by the 1900s those minor disputes had largely cooled off, and France and britain made a series of blunders, in France's case there were assaults on Liberia, which angered the african american population of the united...
  2. WI: Different alignment in the Great War

    Let’s say that Austria-Hungary was still highly resentful towards Prussia (Germany), so much so that they ally with the French. The German-Russian alliance continues without interruption through the early 20th century. By then, the Ottomans join Germany and Russia while Britain joins France and...

    WI The Moroccan Crisis Started WW1?

    The 20th Century, even before the assassination of Franz Ferdinand, was full of points for the world to burst. In 1905, Kaiser Wilhelm II supported Moroccan independence, angering France and Britain, but eventually a diplomatic solution was reached. But what if negotiations broke down, and the...

    To the Victor, Go the Spoils Welcome to the world of 'To the Victor', a graphical history of the world following a victory of the Central Powers in the Great War.

    WI: Italy Joins CP?

    Otl, as I understand it, italy joined the entente due to relying on them for food, and AH owning Soth-Tyrol and their adriatic desires. What if then, AH offered to sell south tyrol to them, as well as the some of the north adriatic (AH would ideally get a good chunk of the southern portion after...
  6. Lenin gets his way at Brest-Litovsk: Effects on WWI and the USSR?

    So let's say Lenin is able to force his will on the rest of the Bolsheviks when the initial Brest-Litovsk treaty is proposed and Congress Poland, Lithuania, and Livonia are ceded to the Central Powers in December 1917. Is this too late to give Germany a chance at victory in the West? This thread...

    DBAHC: Keep The War Of 1914 Going Past Christmas

    The Christmas War. The War of 1914. In some parts still, the great war. There are many names for the war that started because of Franz Ferdinand's assassination. But with the horrors of trench warfare breaking morale within a few weeks, there were mutinies on all sides around Christmas, with the...
  8. WW1: Italy joins Central Powers, USA and Ottoman Empire stay Neutral.

    If every other nation involved is on otl sides, how would this war play out?

    Ottoman Empire after a Central Victory?

    Let's say the Central Powers prevail over the Entente (Americans stay out obviously, perhaps Italy does too to allow the CP to focus solely on France and Russia). What would become of the sick man of Europe? Would the empire collapse like it did iOTL or would it survive and perhaps even...
  10. WI: Scandinavia in WWI

    Sweden - Nikolai Ottovich von Essen carries out his planned strike on the Swedish navy in Gotland (Sweden joins the Central Powers, 1914) Norway - The Central Powers find out about Norway's "secret tonnage agreement" with the United Kingdom, which allowed Norway and the Entente to protect each...

    DBWI: Russia joins Allies instead of Central Powers

    As we all know, Russia joining the Central Powers played a major role in securing victory for them. But what if Russia had instead joined the Entente and the Ottomans joined the Central Powers instead? The other important question would be how can this be done? How would the war have gone down...
  12. WI: Entente Bulgaria and Greece in the Central Powers

    Okay, so I don't know enough about Bulgaria to be able to think up a good POD for them joining the Entente, however, I do know that the king of Greece was related to Kaiser Wilhelm II and was heavily sympathetic to the German cause. So, let's say that, for some reason, Greece joins the Central...
  13. AHC: USA a Central Power in WW1

    So, there was a timeline awhile back where the USA was a Central Power in WW1, and I was wondering, how could they have become one? I heard that, when the war began, a large portion of the (mostly German and Irish-American) population in general supported the central powers while wealthy...
  14. The Dogger Bank War - how a North Sea battle changed the course of the 20th century

    WI: Denmark joins the central powers and take baltic territories.

    On the XIII until the XVII centuries AD the Kingdom of Denmark controlled parts of the baltic, as it can be check on this map. Since Denmark became a very peacefull country after the war with Prussia I believe that a 19th century PoD is more realistic for the situation. Let's say that after the...
  16. Modern pop culture if the Central Powers won World War 1

    World War 1 isn't called the "War of the Century" for a reason. It was a war that would determine which nation would be the superpower of the 20th century. We all know about the political effects of World War 1 and how it led the rise of the United States as a superpower. There are already many...

    When is it too late for the Entente to win if the US joins the CP?

    There is a thread here that discusses the military potential and consequences of a CP-aligned US, out of the blue in August 1914 - but with no clear POD. All agree, though, that the Entente is doomed - the point of contention is when. I thought it would be interesting to look at actual...
  18. Germany focuses on the Western Front in 1915

    Let's say, that Germany doesn't have to reinforce the Eastern Front, as Austria-Hungary manages to withstand the Russians with minimal German presence. Serbia is not a problem either, while Italy doesn't join the war. Without the need of diverting forces elsewhere, what could be the German...

    AHC: Central Powers USA

    Make the United States (With a Post-1900 PoD) join the Central Powers in August 1914. There needs to be a great swift in alignment of American politics for that to happen for sure, but how ? Maybe USA and Britain enter in a Crisis during/after the Hispano-American War ? More German Immigrants to...
