    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...
  2. 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...
  4. 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...

    In a desperate attempt to end the chaos of the war, Kaiser Karl I of Ausria Hungary tried to broker a separate peace agreement with the Entente through his brother-in-law Prince Sixtus of Bourbon-Parma. In otl the negotiations largely fell through because of the Austrian Foreign Minister...
  6. "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...

    Revanchist Spain (Alternate Fascism?)

    I recently started wondering if Spain could have gone down a revanchist/more imperialist/proto-fascist path after the defeat they suffered in the Spanish-American War. The ingredients are all there; a humiliating defeat to a new power and the loss of much of the Empire, especially the treasured...
  9. Best "Alternative Fascist Powers in WWII" TLs?

    Hey there, guys. As the title says, I'm looking for well-written TLs about a WWII where other Great Powers are the Fascist aggressors. I already know of the "Fire Eagle/Snow Bear" TL on the old board (though, sadly, I haven’t been able to find a complete archived version of it, so I’d be really...
  10. How early could something like fascism develop?

    Fascism is one of the most notorious ideologies to ever exist, to the point that the word "fascist" is used as a pejorative. However, academic Roger Griffin managed to work out a definition of fascism: To put it more simply, fascism is a far-right ideology that is populist, militarist...
  11. AHC: Post-Soviet Fascist Russia

    Hi there, AH.com! Longtime lurker here who finally decided to make his first post today. Hope I'm not doing anything wrong as far as formatting or forum etiquette is concerned, so please inform me in case I am. Anyway, without any further ado, can you envision any reasonably plausible scenarios...

    WI: A More Radical Imperial Japan?

    Before the rise of Hideki Tōjō, his party, the moderate Tōseiha (Control Faction) was opposed by the considerably more radical Imperial Way Faction, also known as the Kōdōha. Upset by the rise of political corruption and liberal democracy, the Kōdōha was built on an ideology that sought to...
  13. AHC/WI: Make Fascism (or a similar ideology) take power in France before WWII

    Ever since I read Neither Left Nor Right: Fascist Ideology in France by Zeev Stirnhell, I've been intrigued by his central thesis that Fascism wasn't an only Italian/German affair, and the most of the policies espoused by later fascist regimes (anti-democracy, Corporatist economics, to some...

    Tripolar world after WWII

    Is it possible that the world could have been split into three mainstream ideologies after WWII? Capitalism, Fascism, and Communism. How do you picture the world? How much time would that system have lasted? I picture the Reich surviving and leading in Europe. That way there would have been...

    Hello! My name is Regnum Dei and this is my first written TL which asks the question: What if WWI had no clear winner. This scenario is inspired by HoI4 mod Red Flood but I will try to include a lot of my ideas and expand apon certain things that are not adressed in the mod. Comments...

    Chapter 1: A miraculous escape.

    How would a fascistic USA looks like?

    One of the most common tropes and threads on this forum is the fascist USA one, with someone who had a vague anti democracy ideal like Huey Long, MacArthur, Lindberg, being elected and devolving the American democracy and turning the USA into a state like fascist Italy or Nazi Germany. I myself...
  18. What would happen to the monarchy if Britain turned fascist in the early 30s?

    Assuming this is a CP victory since it would obviously be ASB to do it along the likes of OTL. Does Edward and Wallace charm Oswald Mosely and his cronies or are they ousted like the German monarchy IOTL.
  19. DBWI: Allied USA

    In the Second Great War (commonly known as World War II), the Axis Powers represented right wing authoritarian nations like Germany, Italy, Japan, and Spain. The Allied Powers represented more left-wing nations such as the Soviet Union and China. The three major Western Powers (Britain, France...
  20. The World on the Edge of a Knife: A Three Way Cold War
    Threadmarks: Introduction

    Hello all! A while back I posted a couple threads on which “third world” countries could have plausibly gone fascist or communist. The idea of a three way Cold War has always been interesting to me; as it was the Cold War saw extensive political maneuvering, espionage plots, warfare, and...
