    DBWI: Axis Japan, Allied USSR

    As well all know, the USSR, formerly Russia, was not too happy about losing all that territory in Eastern Europe. This led to their infamous alliance with Nazi Germany that only stayed together thanks to the fact both nations wanted that parts of Poland that belonged to them before 1914. Japan...
  2. DBWI: A Different Tripartite Pact?

    As we know, World War II was fought between two globe-spanning alliances: the Allies (primarily the Unites States of America, the United Kingdom, the Soviet Union, Free Bulgaria, and Argentina) and the Axis. The latter was made up of all the fascist powers in the world, from Mouvement France to...

    Soviet Invasion of Hokkaido

    So in 1945 the Soviets had rolled over the Kuril islands and South Sakhalin and the popular interpretation of history has it that Japan surrendered to the US just in time to avoid a Soviet conquest of Hokkaido. So let's say that Japan is determined to fight to the end like Germany. Consensus...
  4. The Communist International Becomes the Communist Interstellar? (TL) AKA another Communist Germany alt-hist.
    Threadmarks: Introduction

    The Communist International Becomes the Communist Interstellar? This timeline was originally supposed to be the background to an AAR I have planned for Stellaris but then I remembered that this site existed, so I may as well begin here. The alt-history is based on Spartakus, a mod for Hearts of...
  5. WI: More Successful Pinocchio Release?

    As you may or may not know, Walt Disney’s Pinocchio (the second film in the WDAC) premiered on February 7, 1940 before being widely released in the USA February 23 that same year. The next country where it was released was in the UK that spring (premiered in March and wide release in May). After...
  6. WI: CSA-Nazi Germany Alliance

    Let’s assume that the CSA manages to win the American Civil War. Develop a scenario where the Confederacy not only survives into the World War II era but manages to interact with Nazi Germany and even become allies. I know, I know. Nazi Germany probably won’t exist. But let’s assume it does for...

    AHC/PC - Germany/Russia/China vs USA/UK/Japan

    Challenge here is to create a WW2 where the great land powers of Germany, Russia and China fight the great maritime powers of USA, UK and Japan. Basically an Elephant vs a Whale. What happens in this war and who wins?
  8. Prince Edward, Duke of Windsor defect to Nazi Germany 1940 ?

    I know this has been talked a lot about the last 10 years. But as history tells the previous King of England Edward the 8th was by al definition (according to historians) a Nazi. After having watched several documentaries on the matter which tells that during an event in Portugal around 1940...
  9. Some Stupid Questions about the 5” Guns

    What are the differences between the ammunitions and parts of Japan and America’s aforementioned guns? Also, are there any sources for the Japanese 40 Type 89 guns? The Wiki doesn’t cooperate with me right now.
  10. WI: Additional Nazi leaders surviving to be tried at the Nuremberg Trials

    OTL, the International Military Tribunal had 24 accused persons and 7 organizations. Of course, as it often happens, absent persons were involved in the crimes, leading to them being used by some accused to reduce their own guilt and responsability, as Justice Robert Jackson complained on July...
  11. April 9th, 1940 - Germany goes Poland on Denmark?

    Lets imagine that for some (ASB reason) Hitler orders the Wehrmacht to go Poland on Denmark? Meaning the utter destruction of larger danish cities like Copenhagen and Aarhus? Maybe after heavy danish resistance to the german advance? Killing and wounding between 300.000 - 400.000 danes between...

    Experiment Aflame: A House Divided - an Alternate American History
    Threadmarks: Prologue

    Experiment Aflame - an Alternate American History The day was bright and promising. The sky was blue with wisps of clouds, the smell of the sea wafted by with the cool tug of the wind. Dozens of artillery cannons flanked either side of General George Washington, his staff and several other...

    AHC: Soviet Europe

    So the challenge here is with a POD of whatever you want, create a scenario where the Soviet Union occupies most of Western Europe by the end of the Second World War. How would such a scenario affect the Cold War, if they're even is one? A scenario where Operation Unthinkable is actually...

    Most evil possible Stalin

    What could Stalin have realistically done to make himself much more evil than in OTL, to the point where he is widely considered to be the most evil person in history (alongside Hitler or even worse)? Perhaps if he lives longer and the Doctor's Plot goes according to plan? Preferably using a POD...
  16. Japan wins sea battle at Midway but loses the invasion

    What if the Japanese sink 2 US carriers, try to invade and get curbstommped on the beaches. The whole Japanese invasion force is lost at a cost of a 36 marines on land. Could the US government still spin this to be a major morale boosting victory? What would the headlines be like? How does the...
  17. Franzi the Hero

    Franzi the Hero Chapter 1 Franzi sat as high as he could on his “tree” and watched the proceedings. Of course it wasn’t real tree, there wasn’t room for that, but you had to make do. It hadn’t been a good summer. The weather wasn’t quite right and there seemed to be something wrong with the...
  18. The Rooster's Glory -TL

    This is my first timeline I've already developed on my mind. Hopefully I won't develop writer's block. Anyway, this timeline is heavily based and will take elements and inspiration from the following timelines and stories: 1940 - La France continue la guerre: http://1940lafrancecontinue.org/...
  19. WI: Francisco Franco Assassinated in 1941

    In 1941, Spain was a neutral power with ties to the Axis. Their government was arguably indebted to Germany and Italy due to their intervention on Franco's behalf, and Hitler hoped to convince Franco to join the Axis side to close the Mediterranean to Britain. The negotiations went nowhere, but...
