  1. AHC: Pre-War New Zealand Fascist Party

    Historically, unlike other countries at the time, New Zealand never had an actual fascist party until the 60's when WWII was long over. The only far-right group existing at the time was the New Zealand legion, which even then believed in individualism unlike most fascist organizations. Starting...

  3. Ideologies without World War 1

    WW1 was an event which greatly destabilized Europe, destroyed many pre-war governments, and caused civil wars to break out in many countries. This created a power vacuum which benefitted anti-establishment ideologies. In the aftermath of WW1, both a) pre-existing but basically powerless...

    What would a British/French “denazification” look like?

    Presuming there is a POD sometime between 1914 and 1917, which causes the Entente to either lose the Great War with the Central Powers coming out victorious, or a peace treaty is signed with neither side coming out truly on top of the other. Either way it results in a situation like that of OTL...

    So let's say, hypothetically What if Weimar Republic was actually a stable republic and successfully get rid of radical factions in the nation such as communist and nazis, while Japan remain unchanged Will the US maintain the global influence we have after the war? Will Japan get their ass...
  6. Between Japanese style hyper-militarism or German and Italian party based fascism, which would be more likely to happen in the USA?

    Not sure if this is the right board for this, if not could the mods move it to the right place? Anyways, I've seen several threads about a fascist USA where people say that a fascist party akin to the PNF or NSDAP would struggle to rise to power in the US for various factors. But what about...
  7. AHC: Communist Hitler, Fascist Stalin

    Your challenge is to have Hitler become a communist and Stalin become a fascist, rather than the other way around. They don't necessarily have to end up in positions of power, just hold those ideologies. Just in case anyone asks, I put this in Before 1900 because Stalin at the very least...

    Fascism and Vatican II

    If Fascist Italy was neutral during WW2 and remained in a firm control of Italy to at least 1965. What effects would that have on the Vatican II Council that liberalized the Roman Catholic Church? Would Vatican II even happen at all?
  9. WI Oswald Mosley defeated Neville Chamberlain in 1924?

    Before becoming the face of British fascism, Oswald Mosley belonged to the Labour Party, and was prominent enough to the point he was (briefly) a member of Ramsay MacDonald's cabinet. However, his career faced a roadblock immediately after he entered the party (he was a Tory before that) thanks...

    Far-Right American Dictatorship post-1945

    With a POD post-1945 make America have a far-right dictatorship.
  11. Atheist Fascism

    Despite popular belief, the Nazis (regardless of their views on religion) persecuted atheists as heavily as other minorities. Most fascist groups and regimes heavily supported religion as well. Despite this, is there any way to create an atheist far-right regime after wwi and how can this be...
  12. WI: President William Dudley Pelley

    The great depression somehow gets worse than it already was, then this joker runs in 1932 convincing the country that only strong leadership can fix the economy. What policies can he push within the confines of the constitution, would he use military aggression to advance American interests, how...
  13. WI: European fascist parties resisted the Nazis?

    All across Europe, local fascist parties collaborated with the Nazis in their respective countries. In the end, their collaboration destroyed their movements after the war. Only the Communists took up the mantle of anti-fascist resistance, thus becoming lionized to this day while the fascists...

    What would Mussolini/Fascist Italy have thought of a Fascist Russia?

    Basically what the title says. This is speculation of course, but what would Mussolini most likely have thought of Fascist Russia, say if Fascist Russia didn't side with the Allies in a hypothetical World War 2? I'm mostly thinking of this being a scenario where Germany becomes communist or...
  15. Challenge: Have a Quasi-Fascist POTUS elected in 1932

    It always puzzled me how Fascism couldn't gain traction in America during the Great Depression, since it was one of the most affected countries by it and especially in the Democratic Party, plagued by isolationists and racists. Your challenge is to have the Democratic President elected in 1932...

    The vanguards of the sovereign peoples: A Cold War thread.

    4/07/1949, Beirut, Lebanon. "Early in the morning, our brave comrades of the party stormed the vast majority of government buildings, including the presidential palace, capturing the president and executing him for his treason against the Syrian people, now Lebanon is free from imperialism...
  17. Politicians that could have lived longer

    Which politicians that died in the 20th and 21st century could have lived longer? How would their survival affect Historical events? I want to limit the discussion to politicians whose death was caused by Murder, accident or disease. Authority figures in dictatorships should be counted as...

    Territorial extent and Political Ramifications of a Surviving Austria-Hungary from a Successful Sixtus Affair

  19. "Revolutionary" Fascism

    Would it be possible that, if history played out differently, that fascism was less "reactionary" and more "revolutionary"? OTL after Mussolini took power he drew close to catholic and conservative circles using them as a basis for the expansion of fascist power in society and religion. What...

    Mosley and Hitler

    Axis victory scenarios and similar WW2 histories often depict him as a close friend to Hitler after coming in power or being put in power as a quislingist leader by Hitler after the surrender of Britain. This seems very unlikely for several reasons. Mosley's ideas weren't particularly extreme...
