  1. Who would effectively be able to lead the republic of China?

    As a continuation of this thread, where Sun Yat-Sen was blasted as incompetent for presidency of the Republic of China, who would effectively be able to take his place, if we do not count Sun Yat-Sen or Yuan Shikai?
  2. Nationalist Victory TL:
    Threadmarks: Chapter One

    In this TL, the point of divergence comes when Chiang Kai-shek ignores George Marshall's call for a cease-fire and continues the offensive against Mao and his Communists in Manchuria. Note: I have no Chinese-language skills whatsoever, so I am reliant upon Google Translate. If I make a mistake...

    WI: Kuomintang collapse in the midst of WW2; CCP takes the wheel?

    I've seen multiple people in this board claim that Chiang Kai-Shek's pro-US Kuomintang regime in China was dangerously close to collapsing from both internal (communist agitation, corruption) and external (Japan, of course) threats in the midst of World War 2, mostly in between the crucial years...

    If Chiang Kai-shek died in the Xi'an Incident

    In history, the Communist Party of China advocated the release of Chiang Kai-shek because they believed that Chiang Kai-shek was a pro-British-American faction, at least from the perspective of anti-Japanese, better than the pro-Japanese faction such as He Yingqin. So what if Chiang Kai-shek...

    WI: No Central Plains War?

    In 1930, a group of Northwest-based warlords under Yan Xishan and Feng Yuxiang fought one of China's most destructive civil wars in the Republican Era against Chiang Kaishek. Despite early successes, Northwestern forces quickly disintegrated when Zhang Xueliang's Fengtian Clique intervened on...
  6. How would China be if CP won WW1? (No USSR)

    It’s an odd question, but it’s what I’ve been mulling. How would China be if Central powers won WW1? This was before the Bolshevik Revolution so there is no USSR? I figure there may be warlordism, but that would end when Japan would still cause problems Would Kai-Shek take over? If he died...

    Keeping Chiang Kai-Shek in Power (In Mainland China)

    Chiang Kai-Shek's Nationalist Kuomintang historically lost the Chinese Civil War to Mao and the Communist Party of China. The question is, is it plausible for Kai-Shek to win the Civil War AND retain his power after the war? He doesn't have to necessarily be the vanguard for democracy in Asia...

    Democratic China?

    I know that this might be an AH cliche but was it ever possible for China to become a democratic nation at any point in the twentieth century?

    WI: Total Nationalist victory in the Chinese Civil War - Effects on Asia and the Cold War?

    This thread isn't going to be a discussion of why or how the ROC wins ITTL. Perhaps Chiang doesn't do [something dumb] and does [something smart] while Mao doesn't do [something smart] and does [something dumb]. Whatever the cause or POD - The National Revolutionary Army utterly smashes the PLA...
  10. WI: Chiang Kai-Shek and the Nationalist Kuomintang were able to win the Chinese Civil War?

    I think this could be an interesting concept, I'd imagine that there's already been some threads revolving around this question but I personally haven't seen any. First off, this COULD have happened, especially if the U.S.A. had been more supportive of the Kuomintang and if they were able to win...
  11. Nationalist China as the Third Superpower in the Cold War?

    As we all know, the Communists won the Civil War, and Chiang Kai-Shek and the Kuomintang fled to Taiwan. And from there on out Chiang's Republic of China was reliably pro-US in foreign policy. But then again, Taiwan didn't have much of a choice in that regard due to its small size. I think...
  12. Could the ROC have ever retaken the mainland?

    With a POD after the end of the Chinese Civil War, would the ROC have ever been able to retake at least some of the mainland and hold it? OTL the ROC developed plans to retake the mainland, but the US actively opposed any such plans. Even during the Korean War and the Taiwan Straits crises of...
  13. AHC: Taiwan goes full pariah

    I'm thinking of a TL where Taiwan goes full pariah/extremist along Israel/North Korea levels, such as: continuing and supporting anti-PRC terrorism genocide and segregation of Taiwanese Aborigines testing of Nuclear weapons ...into the 2010s. Can this be achieved with a post-1945 POD? (NOTE...
