    OPERATION VENGEANCE: - Yamamoto Survives!

    Greetings All I thought I’d preface this thread to put my own intent into context. When it comes to narratives of this genre, there are few IRL personalities whose historical scope offers more potential than Isoroku Yamamoto. With his position, personality and role in an ultranationalist Japan...

    WI: TOTO or PATO instead of NATO?

    What if NATO didn't just include the European Nations but Pacific, African and Asian countries (Japan, Australia and New Zealand) to form TOTO (Trans Oceanic Treaty Organization) or PATO (Pacific Atlantic Treaty Organization) to fight against the USSR? What would have to happen to and how...
  4. Japanese Industrialization happens 20+ years earlier, Europe power projection in Asia is weaker, how much land does Japan want / can take?

    So I'm making another Napoleon Victory timeline, this time focused on giving Napoleon the greatest plausible victory (definitely stretching the definition of plausible). The outcome is most of Europe remains under French rule (so no Dutch, Portuguese, or Spanish empires), the Russians so badly...
  5. Successful defence of Singapore and the Dutch East Indies during ww2

    What would happen if the Japanese failed to capture Singapore and the Dutch East Indies during ww2. Let’s say before Pearl Harbour naval assets are transferred to Asia and more troops start arriving in the area (mainly Indians and Australians). The defence is also beefed up with more artillery...
  6. What if Lord Halifax became Prime minister and made peace with Germany

    In May 1940 just before the battle of France Halifax excepts the role of becoming Prime Minister. On the 22-23rd of May the Germans reach the English Channel and the allied forces are encircled. In our timeline Halifax believed Britain should make peace before the BEF was destroyed and he...

It had a centralized government, uniting the people of Pohnpei island, and ruled from around 1100s to 1628. Its famous accomplishment was its capital so impressive, it would be called in the...

    Imperial Japanese Renamings after Pacific Victory

    Kind of a long title, but I’ve seen several threads on hypothetical German renaming of places in the event of a victory in WW2, but I have yet to find a similar thread for potential Japanese renamings. Now, I’m not saying that the Axis would win World War II - that’s a discussion for another...
  10. AHC: make Imperial Japan having enough convoy to supply adequately its' troop in the Pacific and Indian Ocean

    One of the recurring weakness of Japan I always saw mentioned in the WW2 threads is the weakness of its' logistic preventing or making very difficult operations such as a landing on Ceylon or Midway (after an hypothetical victory) or even just providing adequate supplies to its' troop on the...

    WI: The Great Mahele

    The Great Mahele was one of the great PoDs of all time. Kamehameha III of Hawaii literally chose how the all the land in his kingdom would be distributed (in 1848), and also wrote new laws for land ownership. In his shoes, you could create communism, a theocracy, technically if he wanted he...
  13. WI Nanban trade evolves into a Trans-Pacific Slave Trade

    Hi everyone, long time lurker, new poster here! I want to preface this by stating that slavery and the slave trade are undeniably horrific acts. That said, both had an undeniable impact on history, particularly in the Atlantic world and I think examining the effects of a similar trade in the...

    Blank Pacific Oriented Basemaps edited by BobHope

    There have been a people who have asked for Pacific Oriented maps on the main thread but I have yet to see a good usable map, so I went trawling and did some work of my own. I have collected the ones I consider the best together here for anyone to use. Unlike the Q-Bam world maps, the Pacific...

    WI Hiroshima and Nagasaki weren't bombed?

    This isn't what you think, I'm thinking of an alternate Japan that doesn't go down the path to war with the West, but that's not my point. How would the demographics/economics of Hiroshima and Nagasaki be different without the atomic bombs? Nagasaki never really reached the importance it had...

    Operation FS: Japan's Final Strike
    Threadmarks: I: Coral Sea (5/42)

    Operation FS, the Japanese invasion of the South Pacific islands, will likely always be the most ambitious military campaign ever attempted. The plan demanded that thousands of Japanese soldiers be transported as far as 7500km away from their home bases, to capture several islands including one...
  17. Kyujo Coup - Alternative War Minister besides Anami?

    Topics involving Kyujo Coup and Operation Downfall tend to saturate military forums, but bear with me here. During the coup, Korechika Anami sided with the Emperor's decision and chose not to back the plotters. Now, the most common WI is if Anami chose differently and sided with the plotters...

    WI: No federation of Australia

    What sort of political scenario would be necessary in order for the peaceful unification of the British colonies of New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia, West Australia, and Queensland into the Dominion of Australia in 1901 to be butterflied away? What sort of ramifications would...

    Impact on Asia if Operation Downfall Happened (No Japanese Surrender)

    So there's been quite a few Operation Downfall timelines and discussion, the invasion of Japan had they not surrendered. But I haven't seen many discuss the impact on East and Southeast Asia as a result of a longer war. And thus I'd like to hear people's thoughts on it. My knowledge is limited...

    WI: Hawai'i becomes a British protectorate

    In 1843, due to claims that British citizens with in the Kingdom of Hawai'i were denied legal rights, the British Empire would occupy the Kingdom of Hawai'i for five months. Historically, it ended with peaceful negotiation and diplomacy by the Hawai'ians, but what if, in an alternate timeline...
