world war 1

  1. What would a present day without World War 1 look like?

    Essentially no Fascism, no Communism, no Art Deco, no Prohibition, no "Dieselpunk". How do you think a world like this would evolve like in the 20th and 21st centuries? People becoming increasingly sexually open and naturalistic, with an Art Nouveau style spreading its comfortable vines all...

    AHC/WI: "Flipping" the fronts of WW1.

    All right the tittle may be a bit confusing but here is the basic idea. IOTL WW1 developed into fairly static trench warfare in the western front after the failure of the Schlieffen Plan, and a more open conflict in the eastern front. The 1917 revolutions in Russia caused them to drop off the...

    Is there a way that the February Revolution could result in an early Russian Civil War?

    In early 1917, the February Revolution led to the abdication of Tsar Nicholas II. However, I've recently been wondering if there is any way that this revolution could have became an early civil war in Russia on the scale of OTL's Russian Civil War.
  4. A Better Budgeted British WW1

    Lets call it a BBB WW1 because why not? Based on the flurry of recent threads involving a change in US support for the Entente/Aliies. So here is the question: WW1 hurt Britain financially. That much is clear. So, ignoring the occasionally rabid debate over how bad the situation in 1916/1917...
  5. Could World War I have ended in a draw?

    Could World War I have ended in a draw, and if so, any likely possibilities? I heard a theory once that WWI could have ended in a draw with no US involvement since all sides were exhausted by then, but does this hold water?

    Poland's Future in a successful Tsarist Empire

    What would be the outcome for Poland if the Russians had concentrated the bulk of their forces on Germany in 1914 and won the war?? Grand Duke Nikolai's manifesto statement ("unite in an autonomous state under the sceptre of the Russian tsar…free in faith, language and self-rule") seems very...
  7. An Unmutilated Victory
    Threadmarks: An Unmutilated Victory

    Unmutilated Victory Italy’s unification ended four centuries of Habsburg Hegemony, but left ancient Italian communities outside the borders of the new kingdom. Istria and Dalmatia- the old Venetian possessions; the Trentino, and the strategically significant Brenner Pass; all were Italia...
  8. Germany Focuses on Russia

    WI: Germany abandons the 'Schlieffen Plan' sometime before 1914, and instead decides to hold a defensive line on the French Border. Meanwhile, the bulk of the Germany army invades Russia, hoping to gain ground while Russia clumsily mobilises.

    Pan Arab State post Great War?

    The Arab Revolt lasted from June 1916-October 1918. It was launched with the hope of forming a Pan Arab state "stretching from Aleppo, Syria to Aden, Yemen." However, the British renegated on their agreement to support this, instead carving up the Middle East into mandates alongside France...
  10. The Kaiser's Europe or What if Germany Won the First Battle of the Marne?
    Threadmarks: Part 1

    THE WELTKRIEG THE ASSASSINATION OF THE ARCHDUKE June 28th, 1914 started out fairly normally in the city of Sarajevo. Austro-Hungarian Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the heir-presumptive of the Austro-Hungarian throne, had supposedly been sent to the city to inspect the military units stationed...
  11. WI German attack on both sides of Meuse at Verdun

    The initial German offensive at Verdun was quite successful, but given that the Germans only attacked East to the river, they quickly found themselves in crossfire from across the other bank of the Meuse, which hampered their forces. Had they attacked on both sides of the river, such problem...

    WI Wilson loses to Roosevelt, What happens to the rest of the world?

    So recently, I watched a video by Alternate History Hub theorizing what would happen if Wilson lost the election to Teddy Roosevelt. However, the video only really explored what happened in Europe. This has me asking, how would another Roosevelt Presidency (And a lack of Wilson) affect the...
  13. WI no disaster at Gnila Lipa?

    In a scenario, inwhich Austria-Hungary mobilises according to Case R+B(Russia+Balkans), and therefore deploys the 2nd Army against Russia from the very beginning, what operational options does the K.u.K Army have, if the Russian 3rd and 8th Armies are stopped in East Galicia? How far North can...

    How might a Second World War occur if World War One ends in a stalemate?

    So there was recently a thread about a hypothetical World War II in a hypothetical Central Powers victory scenario, and it gave me the idea for this thread. How could World War One end in a stalemate, with no side winning, and how could that lead to a possible Second World War? How plausible...
  15. A entente victory in 1916: The results?

    Let’s say everything went right for the entente, the first world war is over in 1916, the battle of tannenberg was a decisive Russian victory, the French offensive into Alsace was succeful, an earlier Jutland resulted in an crushing defeat for the German navy. And well generally all this...
  16. WWII in world post-Central Powers victory

    What do you think World War II would be like in world where Germany won WWI, assuming it sill happens? Point of divergences: no USW, so USA remains neutral and France surrenders in 1917 or 1918. Russia still goes communist (although probably more contained than in OTl - no Ukraine). I think...
  17. AHC: The Russian Revolution of February 1917 is crushed by alied soldiers who were told that the revolutionaries were aiding Germany.

    I had this idea since high school. Back when I was going through a Russian Empire phase.
  18. WI: Different alignment in the Great War

    Let’s say that Austria-Hungary was still highly resentful towards Prussia (Germany), so much so that they ally with the French. The German-Russian alliance continues without interruption through the early 20th century. By then, the Ottomans join Germany and Russia while Britain joins France and...
  19. WI: Ludendorff Killed/Dies on Armistice Day, 1918

    This is inspired by the rather zany penultimate battle of Wonder Woman, wherein she slays a super-powered General Ludendorff (!!!), believing him to be Hades in disguise. Obviously, if I were doing that premise it'd land this in ASB territory, but I was thinking what the repercussions would be...

    Yet Another Treaty of Versailles Thread

    I am, obviously, new here. I have pursued an interest in alternate history for several years now but only in the last few months have I really dove into this forum. I recently decided to make an account and post a new thread. Though I have several ideas that I think are interesting, this is the...
