  1. A entente victory in 1916: The results?

    Let’s say everything went right for the entente, the first world war is over in 1916, the battle of tannenberg was a decisive Russian victory, the French offensive into Alsace was succeful, an earlier Jutland resulted in an crushing defeat for the German navy. And well generally all this...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    WI: Larger Entente success in 1916, Russian Empire lingers on?

    Scenario: the Entente’s war effort is much more successful in the midst of WWI in 1916. Brusilov’s Offensive in the east is properly supported by general Evert or an earlier Romanian DoW, the Battle of the Somme sees more success in capturing German ground, and the Kaiserliche Marine is crippled...

    WI: Italy sides with Central Powers, and the Ottomans sides with the Entente

    What if allies were switched around during WWI Italy decides to side with the Central Powers, and officially declares war on France, to retake Corsica, Nice and Savoy. They are also promised Trieste, but the Austrians may not honor that agreement. Meanwhile, Ottomans join the Entente, thinking...
  9. Would a victorious CSA be in the Entente or CP?

    1.) Which would they choose? Would they (and possibly America) even be in the war at all? 2.) What effect would this have in WW2 and the present day Personally I don't find Turtledove's take realistic hence I asked you guys.
  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...
  11. 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...
  12. Bulgaria Joins Entente, no gallipoli

    So my pod is basically a Bulgarian government deciding to join the entente to regain adrianople lost to the Turks , following the desire of it's people to not fight anymore against the other orthodox fellows. Since Bulgaria has Alexandruopoli, the entente can just land with it's army and go...

    The Miracle of the Marne: An Entente Victory Scenario

    Hey everyone! One part of history that has always really interested me is the Great War. I've toyed around with Entente victory scenarios in the past, however, as they started to become really popular on this website, I was discouraged from starting yet another timeline where the Entente wins...
  14. Post-WW1 America allows Entente debtors to renegotiate debts?

    So, a common factor I've seen cited in the breakdown of French/British military readiness and general cooperation between the WW1 powers is America's refusal to lessen the principal or soften the terms of the loans made to the Entente powers. Is it possible that that could have been avoided...

    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...
  16. 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: Wilhelm II executed

    Your challenge, with a POD after August 1, 1914, is for Kaiser Wilhelm II to end up executed like how "Hanging the Kaiser" was a popular slogan in the Entente countries. It doesn't matter whether his execution is carried out by domestic revolutionaries (perhaps a more radical 1918 Revolution...

  19. Possible treaty terms for the Entente if the central powers won WW1

    What do you think the peace terms should be for the peace treaty of WW1 if the Entente lost and the central powers won? There doesn't have to be a POD to set this (but you can add your own POD if you want to), just an idea of what the treaty could look like in your opinion.
