    WWI: was German defeat inevitable after the US entered the war?

    Hello all, So, the US entering the First World War in 1917 on the side of Britain and France is often considered the deciding factor in Central Powers' defeat. However, after the US had entered the war, Russia would surrender and collapse into civil war. In the West, Germany would launch a...

    Petike's photogalleries of WWI commemoration events in the 2010s

    This thread is a recreation of a compilation thread I originally posted on the 31st of October 2014. I consider this a historical reference and visual inspiration thread for writing about the era of the First World War, specifically the eastern front between Austria-Hungary and the Russian...

    House of the Rising Sun - The German Eagle takes Flight.
    Threadmarks: Official Timeline of WW1 ITTL.

    Chapter 0 - Prologue and Timeline of WW1 So before I begin, I'd like to mention this is far from my first time posting to ah.com. However, it has taken me quite a while to actually commit to a timeline on such a level as what you're going to read through, and without spoiling too much, I'd...
  5. The Qing Dynasty defeats Japan. Consequences to WWI?

    The First Sino-Japanese War, which confirmed the transition of the Empire of Japan from what was once an isolated country to one of the great powers of the world, was a closer affair than the numbers suggest. At the Battle of the Yalu River, for example, four Japanese cruisers were severely...
  6. What if Germany fought to the bitter end in WWI?

    Would it have been possible for Germany to have fought to the bitter end in WWI (like it did in WWII)? How would that have worked? Would they have been able to slow down the Allies at all? What would have been the impact on the German civilian populace? What would have been the result? Would the...

  8. WI: No Kiel Mutiny

    As it says on the tin - let's say that the Wilhelmshaven and Kiel Mutinies never occur or are suppressed in their early stages. The Naval Order of October 24th is carried out, and the High Seas Fleet sets sail to meet the Grand Fleet in a final battle. Who would win this confrontation...
  9. Germany wins the First World War: Speculating about its political future

    I don't know if this particular subject has been discussed at length in other threads speculating about a Central Powers victory in World War One, but I've often wondered about what political direction Germany itself would move in if it were to come out on top at war's end. No matter how the war...
  10. AHC: No Trench Warfare in World War One

    How could World War One have still occurred, yet the Western Front never results in trench warfare? Would technological changes have been necessary?
  11. In a CP victory scenario, will there be a WWII?

    Most CP victories involve a German victory in Europe and an Entente victory in the colonies, so let's start with that as our set-up. The war is over by 1919, the Septemberprogramm has been enforced in Europe, establishing German dominance on the continent, yet, in Africa and the Middle East...

    That Belgian-Dutch alliance in 1905...

    Never happened, of course. But for a little while, there was some consideration given to the notion of establishing a customs union and military alliance between the Low Countries. From what little I learned browsing about when the what-if idea came to me, it was, not surprisingly, mostly the...
  13. AHC: More battles in WWI take place outside of Europe

    World War I was one of the deadliest wars in human history, but apart from the campaigns against the Ottomans and a few minor battles in southern Africa, the vast majority of the fighting seems to have been concentrated in Europe. How can that be changed? What POD might lead to a WWI with...
  14. WI: Russia wins WW1

    What if Russia had not collapsed during World War One, and had instead made it to the 11/11/1918 as a victor, while being ruled by the provisional government? In this scenario, no Bolshevik revolution occurs before the 11/11/1918.

    Nineteen-Eleven: A different First world War
    Threadmarks: Outbreak of the Great War

    Hello, everyone! This is a timeline I worked on a while ago before I joined AH.com. I recently looked it over, and decided it needed to be redone, since in retrospect it seems very poorly researched. So... welcome to Agadir War 2.0, renamed Michel's Victory since I needed a (slightly) less...
  16. Count of Crisco

    The Netherlands, and Alternate History. Part I
    Threadmarks: Part I, chapter I

    Patriot Rebellion. 1785-95 After the disastrous defeat suffered in the Fourth Anglo-Dutch war a number of citizens began to voice a wish to bring about changes to the government. Among the most influential was Joan van der Capellen tot den Pol who would become a key figure in the coming...
  17. America - The Merchant Republic

    Still working on this... The United States pursues its self-interest instead of either confused isolationism or liberal internationalism. The distinction between isolationism vs interventionism is self-evidently flawed. A nation with decent leaders would pursue its own narrow interest in an...
