I am...

    Soviet reputation if their 1944-1945 offensives fails

    Yes it's pretty much ASB. However it's funny to speculate. What if the war ended with the soviets still stuck in the Oder and on the outskirts of Budapest? Berlin still gets encircled at the very end by the soviets, but the western side is besieged by a British army group. Patton smiles at Konev...

    It’s what Father would’ve wanted: achievements by the son of Hitler

    Just something I thought would make for a good timeline What if Eva Braun, Hitlers wife in 1945, failed to die by suicide via cyanide, and was captured by the soviets? She then somehow escapes to west Germany where she dies from exhaustion soon after arriving. Her son then grows up and...

  5. The World on the Edge of a Knife: A Three Way Cold War
    Threadmarks: Introduction

    Hello all! A while back I posted a couple threads on which “third world” countries could have plausibly gone fascist or communist. The idea of a three way Cold War has always been interesting to me; as it was the Cold War saw extensive political maneuvering, espionage plots, warfare, and...

    This is my new Alternate history scenario set during the cold war, the point of divergence is in 1902 when George Marshall is killed during his service in the Philippines, this leads to no Marshall plan being put into effect and Communism Pushing Farther into Europe. The second point of...

    WI: Geopolitical effects of a surviving Soviet Union

    Let's assume that Gorbachev successfully reformed the Soviet Union (through a successful Union Treaty) and retired triumphantly in 1995, after 10 years in power. It is a multi-party democracy still dominated by the Communist Party, which has lost only one Soviet-wide election since 1991. (a la...

    With a POD after 1945, what would have to change that would cause a Soviet amphibious invasion of Britain to be a possibility? Is it more likely than Sealion?
  11. Vatutin gets his way, Soviets attack early July 1943

    I'm listening to the audiobook of "Armor and Blood: the Battle of Kursk" by Dennis Showalter and he mentions how General Vatutin was pressuring Stalin to attack instead of wait for the Germans, as the German Kursk offensive was repeatedly delayed, pushing for an offensive in early July...

    I'm pretty sure most people here are familiar with the Palace of the Soviets: A gargantuan structure that gave birth to an entire style of construction known as Stalinist Architecture, and if it had been built would've been the Soviet Union's new administrative center and congress hall for...
  13. How would a European Russia manage after the fall of the Soviet Union?

    Following the fall of the Soviet Union, what if European Russia and Asian Russia divided, into two different countries of Siberia and Eurossiya (Placeholder name)? The reason that obviously didn't happen in our timeline is because Post-Soviet Borders were determined by the SSR and SFSR borders...

    http://www.globeatwar.com/article/there-end-us-16th-armored-division%E2%80%99s-liberation-Plzen It seemed that ol' Gen "I Read Your Book!" Patton was quite set on taking the city of Prague right as the uprising there took place and before the Soviets came in. Understandably, the Allied high...

    Changes to the October Revolution of 1917

    The League of Nations allows for further occupation of certain Russian lands, in which the allies were currently holding, in order to allow the regrouping of the white army. Even though the Russian people are tired of war, The Allies continue to hold their positions to support the white army...

    DBWI: Able Archer attack never happens?

    We all know how this one event in which was a mere exercise by NATO in 1983 convinced the Soviets that it was a ruse for an invasion by NATO and ironically invaded much of NATO and some neutral countries in the process, thus kicking off the 5 year long Third World War and we all know how...
  20. WI: Tsar Stays in Power?

    From what I've read, the main reason that the first part of the Russian revolution happened is that the Tsar refused to grant rights to the citizenry/establish constitutional monarchy. If those things had happened, would that have prevented the White and then Soviet uprisings? I imagine that the...
