    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...
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  7. Effects of Operation Ichi-Go failing/not being launched?

    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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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?
  10. 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?
  11. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. WI Yeung Ku-Wan Lives

    What if the 1901 assassination attempt on Sun Yat-Sen's partner in Hong Kong had failed? If it's plausible, assume he lives at least another dozen years. Possibility - could the attempted 1903 Guangzhou Uprising, which Yeung’s successor Tse Tsan-Tai had tried to put together circa 1902, have...

    WI: Free Market Capitalist China?

    It endured years of warlordism, a communist takeover, and a Cultural Revolution that produced carnage, chaos, and national catastrophe. Yet mere decades after Deng Xiaoping's reforms, China has emerged as one of the most formidable nations of our time. As a nominally communist power with a...
  16. How would China be if CP won WW1? (No USSR)

    It’s an odd question, but it’s what I’ve been mulling. How would China be if Central powers won WW1? This was before the Bolshevik Revolution so there is no USSR? I figure there may be warlordism, but that would end when Japan would still cause problems Would Kai-Shek take over? If he died...

    Keeping Chiang Kai-Shek in Power (In Mainland China)

    Chiang Kai-Shek's Nationalist Kuomintang historically lost the Chinese Civil War to Mao and the Communist Party of China. The question is, is it plausible for Kai-Shek to win the Civil War AND retain his power after the war? He doesn't have to necessarily be the vanguard for democracy in Asia...
  18. AHC: hostilities in Chinese civil war do not resume after WWII

    Your challenge is to make the CCP and the Kuomintang not resume major hostilities quickly after the end of the Second World War, instead at least staying in a tense peace or at best maintaining the Second Chinese United Front, and working together to recover. Your POD can be as early as you...

    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...

    1911: Was it worth it?

    In 1911, we created a uprising that struck the valleys of our home. By 1912 we set up our provisional government that quickly collapsed to a wicked monarchist set to restore a monarchy in our homelands. Revolutionaries fled and by 1915, we were tired. We armed up against the monarchist and began...
