    WI: Post-WW1 U.S. mandates over Armenia and the Straits?

    IOTL, Britain planned to offer the United States mandates over Wilsonian Armenia and the Turkish Straits post-WW1. These never came to be, but what if they did? How would this affect Turkey, the Entente, and the rest of the world?
  2. 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...

    Union-Entente Alliance in a CSA Victory Scenario?

    The usual assumption made in a CSA victory scenario is that the Confederates win due to European (i.e. British/French) interference in the Civil War, followed by an Entente-Confederate alliance, parallel to one between the Union and the German Empire. I suppose my question is, then, in two...

    Sweden.........joins the Entente? in ww1? What happens next?

    There was talk in the British Government before the von Essen scandal that the Germans would want to pre-empt any sort of Russian attack on Sweden by occupying Sweden themselves and seizing the iron ore mines. Of course this was false but what if it did happen and the Germans attacked the...
  5. USA Joins WWI Later, Can The Entente Still Win? And What Happens Afterwords?

    Somehow the US enters WWI later. Does the Entente still have a shot at winning? And if they do what happens?

    WI: Italy Joined The Entente Instead Of The Triple Alliance/Joined The Entente Early

    italy's joining of the triple alliance with AH and Germany is a bit of an oddity when one considers their relationship with Austria was always... less than pleasant due to Italian adriatic claims.

    No USW

    Let's say for some reason or another the German Empire decides against conducting Unrestricted Submarine Warfare in early 1917. Aside from almost certainly butterflying or atleast delaying US entry into the war on the side of the Entente, how does the rest of the war play out without USW or US...

    WI/AHC: Germans take Amiens during Operation Michael

    What if the Germans take Amiens in the 1918 Kaiserschlacht? How could the Germans take Amiens through Operation Micheal? And would loosing a key link in the British supply chain cause a crisis that knocks France out of the war before the Americans arrive in force?
