    WI: A socialist Republic of China in the 1920s?

    Is it possible for the left wing of the Kuomintang to become the dominant player in China during the early warlord period? Perhaps it could end up being a reversal of the OTL Chinese Civil War, with a right-KMT government waging a guerilla war in the countryside. I know Stalin initially...

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1912_Chinese_National_Assembly_election Shortly after the Xinhai Revolution, mainland China had what was probably the most democratic election in its history, with multiple parties taking part in it, even if only a very small percentage of the population was...

    WI : CKS dies in 1936 Xi'an Incident, Bai Chongxi becomes head of KMT

    in 1936, Chiang Kai Shek was temporarily deposed as leader of the KMT in the Xi'an Incident before re-obtaining power and making an alliance with the CCP that would later prove fatal to him (at least, that's what I get from it from a basic once over). What if, in an alternate timeline, Shek died...

    ATL: Potsdam, Yalta, and others go differently and the Cold War goes down a weird path

    This is an alternate timeline in which a bunch of conferences, treaties, wars, and other stuff that defined the Cold War are done differently (however unrealistic they may be), causing a snowball effect that would make the Cold War go very differently (and also very wacky). This is my first big...
  9. What would the Chinese auto industry be like if the Kuomintang won the Chinese Civil War?

    Ever since Mao Zedong and the Chinese Communist Party won the Chinese Civil War, China's automobile industry had mainly Soviet origins (plants and licensed auto design were founded in the 1950s, with the help of the USSR) and had small volumes for the first 30 years of the republic, not...
  10. What if The Northern Expedition Failed?

    Hello everyone, I come to consult the effects that the failure of the Northern Expedition could have and which POD would be necessary. I believe that one of the reasons for the success of the National Revolutionary Army was the weakness of the Zhili clique after the Beijing Coup and the...

    AHC/WI: Successful Yuan Shikai?

    Hello all, Yuan Shikai was a Chinese Revolutionary general who became president of the Republic of China in 1912. His tenure is widely regarded as little more than a corrupt dictatorship, and in 1915, he went so far as to abolish the Republic and proclaim a new "Chinese Empire," styling himself...

    Threadmarks: 諸言-Intoduction

    諸言-Intoduction China has been a great civilization since antiquity. But with greatness comes envy. For thousands of years, China’s enemies sought to plunder and conquer. Since these enemies usually came from the North, a Great Wall was built to keep them out. But no one had expected that...

    PRC "Taiwan" in Mongolia?

    Hey all, So as we all know, the Kuomintang was forced to evacuate mainland China for Taiwan in 1949. The Chinese Civil War may be de facto over, but the Kuomintang government in Taiwan is still known as the "Republic of China," still claims to be the rightful government over all of China, and...

    Operation Ichi-Go was a massive Japanese offensive in China, one whose objective was to create a land connection between the occupied territories of Indochina in the south and northern China/Manchuria in the north. While it was a success for the IJA on paper, in reality it was an extremely...
  15. The Economic impact of a KMT China

    There have been a couple of "What if the Nationalists had won the Chinese Civil War?" threads over the past few weeks, but its been a while since there was one specifically discussing a non-communist China's economy, and its repercussions. A Chiang led China would have avoided the disastrous...
  16. Who would effectively be able to lead the republic of China?

    As a continuation of this thread, where Sun Yat-Sen was blasted as incompetent for presidency of the Republic of China, who would effectively be able to take his place, if we do not count Sun Yat-Sen or Yuan Shikai?
  17. Was Sun Yat-Sen a competent leader?

    I cannot seem to find any information on how Sun Yat-Sen fared as provisional president or how he would fare as president. All in all, does he have the qualities for the Presidency of the Republic of China or nah?
  18. 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...

    WI: Kuomintang collapse in the midst of WW2; CCP takes the wheel?

    I've seen multiple people in this board claim that Chiang Kai-Shek's pro-US Kuomintang regime in China was dangerously close to collapsing from both internal (communist agitation, corruption) and external (Japan, of course) threats in the midst of World War 2, mostly in between the crucial years...
  20. KMT China Post war economy, foreign relations, society, and politics

    Hello everybody, I have seen a number of posts talking about a KMT civil war victory scenario. I'm going to offer my input based on information I have found online. In my scenario, I'm assuming a KMT total victory over the Communists, establishing a Republic of China with Nanking as the...
