  1. WI: Territorially intact Hungary post-WW1

    The basic premise of the scenario revolves around the leaders of Hungary acting more competently and decisively in the closing days of WW1 and during subsequent events. I didn't yet work out the exact details, but one idea of mine is getting Károlyi Mihály appointed Prime Minister of Hungary...
  2. Second American Civil War 1930s Discussion Original Title: Foreign Involvement in a Second American Civil War(1930s)

    I have found that my question didn’t have enough context to work with so until me and the boys(the community) figure this out, we are discussing different TLs and possible new TLs. Original text: After all my research I’ve done it seems a bit of a stretch that a war could break out. But let’s...

    Reichsmarine goes nuclear

    Basically Otto Hahn as head of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute, together with Lisa Meitner, in need of funds during the 1920s goes to the Reichsmarine with a tantalizing tale of a new power source for their ships. With the already felt delays until new capital ships can be laid down and the...
  5. Polish WI: Gabriel Narutowicz isn't assassinated?

    The first president of interwar Poland, Gabriel Narutowicz was elected with the help of the left and various minorities, much to the anger of the National Democracy and other right-wing movements. He was assassinated by one such right-winger in December 16 1922, after just five days in office...
  6. Brazilian WI: Getúlio Vargas wins the 1930 election?

    As with all elections during the Old Republic, the 1930 presidential race was less a matter of campaigning and more of making alliances with the powerful oligarchic groups that controlled their respective states, thanks to rampant fraud. Júlio Prestes won this dispute easily, thanks in no small...
  7. Stalin places Khrushchev in charge of the NKVD.

    Stalin during the final days of Nikolai Yezhov's downfall as NKVD chief gets a brain haemorrhage and is out of action for a week, after said week in which a doctors assessment states that no further medical conditions are present, is physically fine, and is in full control of his mental...
  8. WI Austria-Hungary survives WW1?

    POD: Austria-Hungary remains on the defence through 1918, the Italian Front doesn't break, and the Entente's advance on the Balkans is halted somewhere in Central Serbia thanks to Austro-Hungarian reinforcements and Entente logistical limits. (By this point, Bulgaria and the Ottoman Empire...
  9. US-French security pact post WW1

    Historically, it was only because Wilson linked a potential US guarantee of France against Germany with the Versailles Treaty (which the Senate wouldn't accept without amendments), that the security guarantee was never put to Senate vote. Let's assume Wilson allows the issues to be separated. US...
  10. A different Cruiser idea at the WNT

    Hi folks, I was reading @aaronupright thread and got an idea. So, let's keep most things from the WNT as historically, but with two changes. The first change, about the fortifications and bases in the pacific, lets have a clause that if Japan withdraws from the treaty system (historically...

    WI: Austria-Hungary reformed before Second World War

    After the WW1 the Austro-Hungarian empire collapsed with new countries emerging from its corpse. Two of them were Austria and Hungary. I propose a two scenarios where it is reformed (though not in its original state) in the interwar period. First is, that at the second attempt of Karl I. to...

    US Navy Battlecruisers: Possible? Reasonable? Remotely Likely?

    So, this is something I've always kind of wondered but haven't found a solid answer for it. Most of the major navies in the interwar period built some form of battlecruisers, or at least had them available at the start of the war, except for the USN. Why is that? I know that the Lexingtons were...

    How To Prevent The Narrative of Versailles Being Too Harsh From Spreading In Anglophone Countries?

    Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini, Franco, and Pétain die in the beginning of 1924

    Obviously not exactly plausible but not impossible. Suppose that in a bizarre string of random accidents, Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Francisco Franco, and Philippe Pétain die within the first week of 1924. What would be the ramifications of the premature deaths of all...
  16. Rocketry and Space Exploration in a surviving Weimar Republic

    The PoD I had in mind was Hugo Eckener running for and winning the Presidency in 1932, though I'm sure there are plenty of other ways to save the Weimar Republic. So let's say it survives, and World War 2 is averted (I assume Japan won't strike against the US all on its own). Germany already...
  17. Weimar Republic Collapse

    So, the Weimar Republic was never the most functional of states but it did manage to limp along until Hitler and the Nazis seized power in 1933. But, what if it didn't? In the 1920s the government was dealing with a massive inflation crisis which caused it to default on its post-Versailles...

    The Himalayan Unionist Project went through in 1928. What are its consequences?

    From 1920 - 28, the governments of Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet went through a period of pan-Himalayan ideas, and in 1926 a small conference was even held in Shigatse about creating a Federal Kingdom of the Himalayas uniting Bhutan, Tibet and Nepal into one single country. However the KMT threatened...
  19. A Learning Experience for RN

    I was thinking just how different could the Royal Navy Carrier design and perhaps doctrine be different to OTL, if they start building Carriers a bit earlier then OTL. Now, IOTL, their first modern, large carrier was Ark Royal, laid down in 1934, but just what design they would end up with if...
  20. 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...
