  2. AHC: Switch the fates of Medieval Italian and Iberian Peninsulas?

    With a PoD of your choosing (though the less early it is, the better), have the lands of Italia and Iberia switch roles in the Medieval era. Spain must be a land divided between various republican city states and small kingdoms who compete against each other and becomes the birthplace of the...

  6. AHC: Had the Italian City-States more Resources/Power, what could they colonise in the West Indies ?

    So this is kind of a spin-off on the Alternative West Indies thread , but focusing more specifically on the Italian Kingdoms/Republics and City-States as potential colonisers in a context where maybe both Spain and Portugal may be nerfed or at least less ambitious in terms of trad ventures...

  9. How predetermined was Prussian military excellence?

    The explanations I've seen for the Prussian military's over-performance despite Prussia's relatively small size and population are mostly "great man of history" explanations.
