    Dutch Empire and the Great War

    Is there a way to make the Dutch Empire stronger / larger but let WW1 still occure as OTL. I was for example thinking about a remaining Dutch Ceylon, but are there more possibilities? Your thoughts?

    Russo-German peace after a CP victory in the west

    What if Germany won WW1 “quick” in the west in 1914/1915. How would the Eastern Front develop? And what would be the peace treaty between the CP’s and the Russian Empire?
  3. What would the Russian empire want if they won world war 1?

    I've been looking into into what the Russian empire would want if they won world war 1 and would seek at the table. Note I imagine if they did still win they obviously would have many issues but it's best to assume in this case these are their maximalist goals that they would use first then...

    Alternate casus belli WW1

    So if we assume The Netherlands kept Belgium in 1830, will this butterfly the murder of Frans Ferdinand away? If the answer is yes, what are other causes of ITTL WW1 (which will off course be very different)?
  5. AHC: Have the United States join the Central Powers during World War 1

    No cheaty methods like TL-191 with the Confederates surviving & allying with the French & British. Only changes have to be in America.

    Spanish Civil War if Germany won WW1

    So let’s say Germany wins WW1 in 1916 because Italy joined the Central Powers a year earlier. What would the effects of this be on the Spanish Civil War? Would it still happen?

    South Africa if Germany won WW1

    What would happen to South Africa if Germany won World War I? Would it have less British influence and more German or even Dutch influence, and become a sort of new Boer Republic or would the history of South Africa be totally similar as in OTL? How would the relations between SA and The...

    Central Power Netherlands

    What if The Netherlands joined the Central Powers? Let’s assume a naval incident or something else, and as a result, The Netherlands join the Central Powers. Let’s say that in this TL Germany plays their ‘old strategy’ so focuses on Russia first, but Britain still join the war. Last but not...

    If Cape Colony remains Dutch, would WW1 still happen?

    If The Netherlands manage to keep the Cape Colony in a 1815-POD, will World War I still happen?

    The Netherlands if Germany won WW1

    What would happen to The Netherlands if Germany won WW1? Would they get more land and/or colonies (could also be on the long run), which role would they play in Europe and the world if this alternative WW1 occured? And how would Dutch politics ánd the Dutch colonial empire develop? Thoughts?

    World War I without Wilhelm II

    If somehow Kaiser Wilhelm II would have not reigned over Germany, would World War I still happen? I read somewhere that WW1 was not the result of Wilhelm II’s reign, but the result of the German army and Prussian elite having very much influence on there politics. So basically: a modern country...

    Dutch and German POD

    I am searching for a POD in which The Netherlands stays a middle-great colonial empire, but WW1 still happen and ends in a German victory. Is this somehow possible, and if yes, how?
  13. Friedrich der Große

    If the Belgian Revolution never happened, would WW1 still happen?

    So basically this: If the Belgian Revolution never happened and the United Kingdom of the Netherlands stays alive, would WW1 still happen, or wouldn’t it because of the butterflies?

    WI: The Netherlands joins Central Powers

    What if in an alternate timeline, The Netherlands joined the Central Powers during World War I, and the Central Powers managed to claim victory in the war. What would the Netherlands gain? Would they gain territories in Belgium or in Asia or Africa, or would they gain territories somewhere...
  15. Would have been possible a medieval or pre-World War Czechoslovakia?

    Could Czech and Slovak have been united under one state (regardless if kingdom or republic)?

    White and Central Powers win?

    I’m currently working on a Central Powers Victory scenario in WW1, in which the Central Powers focused on Russia first, defeated Russia in 1916 and after that focusing and defeating France. But my question is: in this scenario, what would have happened to Russia? Would the Russian Revolution...

    Maximum Population of Hungary

    What could the maximum population of 1914 borders Hungary could support?

    WW1, but Moltke dies in 1913

    The Schlieffen Plan, in fact the ‘Moltke Plan’ after 1905, became a failure during the first months of the First World War. In my opinion this is the responsibility of the German Chief of the General Staff, Helmuth von Moltke the Younger. But what if this went different. What if Moltke dies in...

    Central Powers Victory in 1917: What happens with Britain?

    Let's say that the Germans win at Verdun, resulting in the French launching suicidal counter-offensives as Falkenhayn planned, resulting in worse 1917 mutinies and the fall of Paris that same year. What happens with Britain? Does Britain go isolationist and focus on its remaining colonies, as...

    A German WW2

    Which parties would have fought each other if Germany had won the First World War? For that ‘If Germany won’, I have this scenario: The Germans continue the advance into France in august/september 1914. December 1914, France surrenders. Then the Germans move to Russia. They launch an...
