    Operation Beleaguer leads to more American involvement in the Chinese Civil War

    Operation Beleaguer was a U.S. military operation in post-World War II China that oversaw the repatriation of Japanese and Korean nationals and the protection of American citizens and interests in the mainland. Since this was during the time of the resumption of the Chinese Civil War, the U.S...

    DBWI: What If The Warlord Period Ended?

    China has had a long and varied history of unification, division, conquest, etc. But the Qing Collapse has led to one of the longest divisions in chinese history. After the defeat of the Japanese in ww2, the chinese civil war was back on, and neither America or Russia could let the other side...
  3. Latest POD for China to win the second Sino-Japanese War on their own by 1945

    So as far as I understand, China was barely holding on for the first half of the second Sino-Japanese War, and even in the second half they were not really pushing the japanese out, with operation Ichi-Go being a defeat for China and losing lots og territory. My question would be, what is the...
  4. Communist victory in China without the Soviet Union

    In many timelines you have the nationalists win the chinese civil wardue to 1945 going differently. For example not having america airlift nationalist troops into soviet occupied manchuria to be envircled by the chinese communists. This is what happened in "decisive darkness" I think. Could the...
  5. How different would a modern day KMT one party China look compared to today's China?

    The China of today, governed with an iron fist by the Chinese Communist Party is described by alot of people to be Capitalist, Nationalist, and Imperialist, alot of qualities people associated with the KMT. So I'm wondering in a TL where the KMT win the civil war, how really different would...
  6. Nationalist Victory TL:
    Threadmarks: Chapter One

    In this TL, the point of divergence comes when Chiang Kai-shek ignores George Marshall's call for a cease-fire and continues the offensive against Mao and his Communists in Manchuria. Note: I have no Chinese-language skills whatsoever, so I am reliant upon Google Translate. If I make a mistake...

    WI: KMT China

    So, lets say that the KMT retains control of China. There would clearly be longterm ramifications for this. Would the Soviets refuse to hand over Manchuria to the ROC? What would become of North and South Korea? What would happen to Indochina? Would Soviet be affected by the absence of a...

    WI: Vietnam gets annexed by China after the French go away?

    So, with a PoD anywhere between 1900 and 1950, how could Vietnam unite with China, perhaps with a degree of autonomy in the package? How strong were sinophile elements within Vietnam in this time frame, IOTL? I hear there were plans to transfer control of Indochina from France to KMT China...
  9. World in Flux:An Alternate Cold War Timeline

    First attempt at a timeline. China and the far east 1940s and 1950s [1]With defeat of Japan in the Pacific war and the crushing of the communist party in the long march. The two greatest threats to the Nationalist rule in China were over. Attempts at land reform were largely unsuccessful with...
  10. DBWI: Chinese Communist Party won the civil war

    What could possibly have happened if the CCP won the civil war in the 1940s? The geopolitical repercussions would certainly be massive, not the least that the Truman-Chiang "Containment" strategy probably wouldn't have worked at all. Two massive Marxist-Leninist totalitarian regimes dominating...

    WI: Total Nationalist victory in the Chinese Civil War - Effects on Asia and the Cold War?

    This thread isn't going to be a discussion of why or how the ROC wins ITTL. Perhaps Chiang doesn't do [something dumb] and does [something smart] while Mao doesn't do [something smart] and does [something dumb]. Whatever the cause or POD - The National Revolutionary Army utterly smashes the PLA...

    WI: The PRC takes over Taiwan

    So, suppose that the PRC crushes the KMT even further in the Chinese Civil War, by somehow invading and occupying the island of Taiwan. Perhaps a better communist performance at the Battle of Guningtou? What happens next? Without a friendly capitalist rump chinese regime to negotiate with, what...
  13. Nationalist China as the Third Superpower in the Cold War?

    As we all know, the Communists won the Civil War, and Chiang Kai-Shek and the Kuomintang fled to Taiwan. And from there on out Chiang's Republic of China was reliably pro-US in foreign policy. But then again, Taiwan didn't have much of a choice in that regard due to its small size. I think...

    DBWI: Communist China?

    As we all know, the Republic of China is probably the world's largest economy and is a thriving democracy, but what if it had somehow fallen to Communism (it had a prominent Communist Party which allied with the KMT in the "United Front")? What PODs might be needed for such a Communist China...
  15. Could the ROC have ever retaken the mainland?

    With a POD after the end of the Chinese Civil War, would the ROC have ever been able to retake at least some of the mainland and hold it? OTL the ROC developed plans to retake the mainland, but the US actively opposed any such plans. Even during the Korean War and the Taiwan Straits crises of...
