    Threadmarks: 1971 - 1972 - The Embers of an Alliance

    This is something that I have been working on assiduously since the last two months. This is my second most serious project after 'When it rains, it pours! A Frederick the sixth ISOT!' The concept is what would happen if the Bangladesh Liberation war were to occur 14 years later on than OTL...

    The East Marches On: An Alternate Timeline
    Threadmarks: Soviet Union wins WW3

    The date is October 31, 1983. NATO prepares for Able Archer 83, a huge military exercise simulating an invasion of Europe by the Warsaw Pact.

    WI: The DDR recognized as a sovereign country by Bonn?

    What if the East German socialist state that existed from around the end of the Allied occupation of Germany around the early 1950's till the fall of the Eastern Bloc around 1990 had, instead of claiming to be the legitimate government of all Germany (which resulted in tensions within European...

    AHC/WI: pro-Soviet Germany, pro-NATO Poland?

    Would it be possible for the Cold War disputes in Europe to result in a sort of division in which Germany (probably united under a single administration ITTL) joins a formal geopolitical alliance with the Soviet Union and her allies while Poland becomes an ally of NATO and the west, in a sort of...

    PC/WI: More autonomous Warsaw Pact bloc?

    With a PoD anywhere between the Yalta Conference in 1945 and the fall of the USSR in 1991, how could we make it so that the Warsaw Pact countries of Eastern Europe, set up IOTL as puppets or clients of the Soviet Union, end up as autonomous from Moscow in regards to international policy as the...
  6. WI: No Iron Curtain/Warsaw Pact?

    All righty! Here's one to think about! Say that through a combination of luck or circumstance, there is no Iron Curtain/Warsaw Pact? By that I mean Poland, Czechoslovakia, Austria, Hungary, Germany, Romania and Bulgaria were all liberated by the Wesr and or their own governments and thus were...
  7. WI: Prague Spring spreads to other countries

    What if Prague Spring in Czechoslovakia managed to spread to other Warsaw Pact nations? How could've the mass protests managed to get more support in other countries thus making it harder for Soviets to put it down? And what happens once it's impossible to invade Czechoslovakia since the Warsaw...

    WI: East German border on the Weser river?

    Given that I already made a thread regarding a partition of a smaller DDR before, i'd now like to discuss what would be the effects of an opposite scenario. What if the Soviet army had been luckier in its drive to the west during WW2 (perhaps Horthy oversees a more successful defection of...
  9. WI. Nato invades the Soviet Union

    What if NATO invaded the Soviet Union and the other socialist nations at some point during the cold war? Im talking about an all out attack on the Warsaw Pact by NATO. Every Warsaw Pact war plan depicted a NATO attack, and the following defense and counter offensive. Though the soviets had a...
  10. WW3 in the late 80s: How long does the munition last?

    I am currently writing a little something and I have a couple of questions, regarding NATO and WP military capacities and plans, in the late 80s/early 90s. following scenario to work with: Its 1991 and WW3 breaks out. Both sides refrain from using NBC weapons. ITTL Gorbachev never came to...
  11. Hungary split in two after WW2

    So just like the title asks, what if Hungary was split in two after WW2? The division would be along the Danube river, with Transdanubia( with Buda) being occupied by the Western Allies, while the rest( with Pest) would be occupied by the Soviets. How would this affect the cold war, Europe and...
  12. AHC/WI Franco-Soviet Alliance in the Cold War

    Would it be possible for De Gaulle or another French leader to ally the Soviets, openly or secretly. I know they left NATO for a brief time and that De Gaulle referred to the Soviet Union as Russia to evoke ww1 memories of fighting alongside one another, what would have to happen for this to be...
  13. Warsaw Pact attempts quick, limited war in early 70s. Results?

    The US military was in dire straits in the early 70s with demoralization from Vietnam and the domestic situation leading to rampant drug use, race riots, and fragging among troops in Southeast Asia. It's also well known that there were mutinies and sabotage on a number of Navy ships as well. In...

    Was the Hungarian uprising anti-communist?

    Dear friends, comrades. Many of you are aware of the Hungarian Uprising of 1956. The uprising was mostly anti-Soviet. But was it anti-communist? The facts are very contradictory.
  15. PC: Cold War with a smaller Soviet Union?

    Scenario: for some reason, the Soviet Army advances to the West much slower due to worse performance, etc, and after WW2 the Iron Curtain is on the OTL Soviet border, more or less. So Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Romania go to the Western block, there is little or no Warsaw Pact. Coupled...
  16. WI:Romania left the Warsaw Pact in 1968

    Hello!This is my first thread.As the title says,what if Romania,to complete it's split from the Soviet Union,pulled a Yugoslavia and left the Warsaw Pact after refusing to take part in crushing the Prague Spring.We have the Albanian example,in which they, after splitting with the Soviet Union...
  17. AHC: At least one Eastern Bloc state goes non-democratic

    Your challenge here is, with a POD in 1989 or later, to have at least one state of the Eastern Bloc be non-democratic by 2017. And it can't stay communist either. "Non-democratic" means generally all forms of dictatorship - the state must be at least a hybrid regime and be in the lower half of...

    No Ceaușescu: Affects on Romania

    Basic idea is Nicolae Ceaușescu never rise to power in Romania, between him dying in World War 2, or sometime before 1965. So who will lead Romania? What affects would this have on Romania, and possible Eastern Europe, and the Cold War as a whole?

    WI: NATO backs the Portuguese in the Colonial War?

    The Portuguese Colonial War, also known in Portugal as the Overseas War and in the former colonies as the War of Liberation, was fought between Portugal's military and the emerging nationalist movements in Portugal's African colonies between 1961 and 1974. This war was a decisive ideological...
  20. War Games

    (I posted this in the test forum and received no replies, so I thought I'd have a better chance here) I've recently had growing interest in Cold War era history, and I've started to read up on some events I found striking during that period, namely the martial law over Poland, and the...
