  1. The Great War Stalemate?- Communism and what else

    Let's get creative. We really do not discuss what if World War One ended in a draw, if because the idea of either side conceding is hard to imagine along with whatever reasons people will point to say why it cannot happen or why the Entente was destined or so on and so forth. That's not the...
  2. AHC/WI: Non-Communist Central Europe during the Cold War

    How do you think countries like Hungary, Czechoslovakia, and Poland would have turned out like if the Soviet Union never expanded its rule to their territories, creating Communist People's Republics after WW2? Would they have been similar to various South American countries, being ruled over by...

    AHC: As many communist nations during World War 2 as possible

    NOTE: No Communist USA or Communist Britain Basically how can you make communism significantly more successful before or during WW2 than in OTL and what is the highest number of countries that could become communist at around that time (excluding countries included in note), and how would a...

    1968: Commune of France

    What would have happened, if the Spanish Civil War ended with a republican victory that became a socialist state alligned with the USSR through the Cold War, when the 1968 May 'Revolution' in France became a socialist insurrection? Would the Spanish infiltrate the country to support the...

    Communist Plans For The French Colonial Empire

    Say that after ww1, the communists come to power in france. Great, down with the bourgeois, i'll polish up the guillotine, all that fun stuff. Except... had a bit more than just france at the time. So what were the leading communist solutions to the issue? Decolonization/puppets? Integrate the...
  6. AHC: Sino-American War starts during the Korean War

    What if the Chinese intervention to save North Korea from the UN forces led by the United States causes huge tensions and this escalates into a war between the PRC and the USA. Nukes can be used for tactical use but this doesn’t escalate into WW3. American Alliance: United States Japan South...
  7. Solidarity Forever: A Socialist America Map Thread

    "If America does not use her vast resources of wealth to end poverty and make it possible for all of God's children to have the basic necessities of life, she too will go to hell." -Martin Luther King, 1968 This is the story which tells the turbulent history of America's journey from the...
  8. AHC: The Effects of a Communist Turkey?

    So, let's say that during the Turkish War of Independence, the only way for the Turks to receive Soviet Aid would be for them to grant a greater voice to Turkish Communists in the Grand National Assembly. The greater presence and influence of these Communists, not to mention the...
  9. The Communist International Becomes the Communist Interstellar? (TL) AKA another Communist Germany alt-hist.
    Threadmarks: Introduction

    The Communist International Becomes the Communist Interstellar? This timeline was originally supposed to be the background to an AAR I have planned for Stellaris but then I remembered that this site existed, so I may as well begin here. The alt-history is based on Spartakus, a mod for Hearts of...
  10. WI: "Star Trek" was shown in the East Bloc during the Cold War?

    Although in OTL, the East Bloc countries (especially Poland, Hungary, and the USSR) had a large degree of sci-fi fandom, they never aired the "Star Trek" Original or Next Generation series on TV, until after Communism fell in the 90s, nor they showed the Star Trek movies in theatres. In...
  11. WI: The US loses the Korean War

    In OTL, the Korean War ended in a stalemate which persists to this very day. What if, though, the US and South Korea outright lost to North Korea in 1953 like how the US lost Vietnam in OTL around 1973. Thoughts?

    WI: The Sino-Soviet split escalates?

    Due to disagreements about the approach to communism the soviet union and the peoples republic of china split apart diplomatically. But what if China's attempts to take leadership of the communist world escalated into full out war between china and the USSR? Who would win the war and also how...

    Leon Trotsky succeeds Lennin

    What if Lennin was more vocal in his opposition of Stalin, at least vocal enough to discredit Stalin? I think that had this happened, Leon Trotsky would have succeeded Lennin. Why? Because he was supposed to in OTL. Had Trotsky become the leader of the Soviet Union, they would have definitely...
  14. AHC: Monarchism + Communism

    Is there way to make a political system which combines elements of Absolute Monarchy and Communism start getting popular in the 19th century or early 20th century, and become dominant over many large countries, and not just have modern, somewhat different, isolated examples like North Korea...

    WI: Soviets Don't Rise In Russia?

    Otl, to say communism was a big deal is a wee bit of an understatement. So what if we were to have the first communist revolution fail? Say kerensky pulls out of world war one, which his otl failure to do so turned many to the bolshevik cause. What happens to the great war if the CP are bought...

    Can France win in Vietnam?

    Is there a realistic scenario where the French succeed in defeating Ho Chi Minh and basically eradicating the insurgency? If so, what happens to Vietnam long-term? Limited autonomy to placate the population (there were plans for some kind of federation), and/or subsidies like French Guiana...

    Most Likely Time and Place for a Communist Revolution in the US?

    So, I've had this idea bouncing around for a while for a Communist revolution in the United States. One of the (many, many) problems with this scenario is that I haven't the faintest idea where or when to place this supposed revolution. I was thinking the Industrial/Rust Belt Great Lakes states...

    The French Revolution of 1871

    The year is 1871. The harsh rule of Napoleon III in this timeline has tarnished his image in France. Many people sought a return the the old republic, whilst others took a more radical view. Many workers had begun to turn to the ideas of German philosopher Karl Marx for answers. This led to a...
  19. The Pokemon franchise in a socialist Japan

    I'm big fan of the Pokemon franchise since I was 8 years old. In my humble opinion, the Pokemon games and animes are one of the best examples of how japanese culture has influenced all of the world. Recently, a question has come to my mind: How would the Pokemon franchise have developed in a...

    Birth of the Conquering Lion - an Ethiopia/WHF TL

    Alright, just a quick foreword, this is a TL I've made after reading @twistedirregular's Ethiopia TLs and several Ethiopia AARs on Paradox Forums. This is basically combining Earth's past with my Warhammer Fantasy Quest Dynasty of the Woodfolk on Spacebattles and the possible future that would...
