  1. The Central Powers end up deeper in Russia

    During WWI, in the Eastern front, the Germans launched the Gorlice–Tarnów Offensive in 1915 that resulted in an event known as the "Great Retreat" where the Russians fled Poland to establish a better defense around west Belarus and Ukraine. But what if they failed to create a defensive line in...
  2. France sues for peace in 1917: postwar political developments

    Lets assume a scenario where the Brussilov Offensive never happens. Instead we see pointless and costly offensives against the German sectors. Basically a string of Lake Naroch Offensives. The Tsar and his demoralized military are convinced that the war is unwinnable and sue for peace...
  3. AHC/WI: World War 1 ended up in the draw

    It's just as the title says, what happens by any chance of an event, World War 1 ended up in the draw between the Entente and the Central Powers? It can be a stalemate. How would this impact on the world?

    AHC: Have the United States be on the losing side of WW1

    As the title says, create a scenario where the U.S., joining either the Entente or the Central Powers, finds itself on the losing side of the war.

  6. WI: The United States enters WW1 as a Central Power but loses

    Let's say that the United States joins World War 1 as an ally of Germany but still loses the war to the Entente. How could the Entente have beaten the Central Powers with the United States as an enemy? Assuming they win, what kind of concessions will the United States have to make? I could...
  7. Alternative Western Front in a no Schlieffen-Plan WW1

    Inspired by the massive 50 pages thread on a Germany that respects Belgian neutrality in an ATL I want to talk about the iconic front of WW1 in a very different scenario. The scenario: Due to some non specified POD the OHL and the Kaiser decide to follow a different strategy ITTL. - 3 armies...
  8. AHC: Russian military victory in WW1

    How could the Russian Tsardom achive a military victory against the central powers in WW1? What would be the consequences of a Russian victory? Some things that might be affedted listed below. - Internal consequences in Russian empire - Cultural changes - Demographic changes - Changes in...
  9. An alternate WWI

    This scenario could use some revision, but the basic premise is as follows: Franz Ferdinand is not murdered in 1914. Instead, AH military spending has grown 5-10% from 1906-1911, and and continues to slowly grow from 1912-1916, after which the now "triple monarchy" (really a unified country...

    How hard can the Entente Piss off the USA?

    As in the title, Do your best to destroy relations between the european entente members and the USA during the course of WW1. The US doesn’t have to join the war or stay neutral, just piss them off the maximum possible degree. Pissing them off in the peace conference is fine too. Its also fine...
  11. AHC: Turkish Trianon, Hungarian Sévres

    So here's the challenge: make Turkey and Hungary "switch places" when it comes to the peace treaties following WW1. The idea is for Turkey to lose as much territory as possible, possibly those proposed in the Treaty of Sévres, while Hungary avoids most losses incurred under Trianon, either...

    WI: Grand Duke Michael became the Russian Tsar in 1917?

    After Nicholas II abdicated the throne in 1917 for himself and behalf of his son Alexei, the throne was offered to Nicholas's younger brother, Grand Duke Michael. Michael was considered kind, and he was humble, not power-hungry. He was described by one British ambassador (whose name escapes me)...
  13. Why was the Sultan's Jihad not heeded?

    On November 14, 1914, the Ottoman government issued a call to Jihad on behalf of Sultan-Caliph Mehmed V. The summons exhorted the Muslim subjects of the Entente empires to rise up against these powers in defense of Islam and in support of the Ottoman Caliphate. However, this call to Jihad...

    Let's Make Constantinople Capital of the World Again!

    How likely is it that the seat of the League of Nations would move from Geneva to Constantinople? That said, I don't know of a better location for the World Moot than the Intercontinental City. (And I'm not the only one, see links below.) Certainly, it would give the Entente greater incentive...
  15. Randomize World War One. What would be the most interesting possibility?

    If you could "randomize" the alliances in Europe before WWI, with the same borders as OTL 1914 and the US still entering in 1917 or later (on any side), what do you think would be the most interesting, alternate possibility? It does not have to be particularly likely or realistic, this is an...
