  1. AHC; More/Most World Wars

    Your challenge is to have as many possible world wars, with a soft 1900 POD though shortly before would be acceptable too... Just how many earth shattering conflicts can you concoct? Is the world more or less developed by the end of it all, or are we currently in a new stone age? Looking...
  2. Earliest possible intercontinental great power "total war"?

    Everybody knows about the world wars, but these certainly weren't the first intercontinental, or great power total wars. The Napoleonic Wars are probably the best exmaple before the world wars. The 30 Year War was certainly a great power conflict, and definately a total war, but I think it was...

  4. Late Central Powers victory -- consequences for the US?

    Let's set the basic scenario: Germany never resumes USW, no Zimmerman telegram, US remains neutral, etc. etc. etc. and we get a CP victory sometime in 1918 after Brest-Litovsk.

    KMT-USA World War possible?

    In a world where the KMT wins the CCW in the 30s or so (what are the best PoDs for that) and survives the war with Japan but remains a military/presidential dictatorship on some level, could a world war break out between the KMT and USA anywhere between the 90s (where many argue that China OTL...

  9. US economic development without WW1?

  10. WI: The American Civil War (According to Lyndon LaRouche)

  13. Development of computers without the World Wars?

    Let's assume that WW1 and WW2 are somehow avoided. How do you see computers developing? Do you believe that the field would lag behind compared to its OTL counterpart? Is it possible that the opposite is true, that the field could be even further along in certain scenarios? Ultimately, how...
  14. What Could the Allies Have Done to Stop the Holocaust?

  15. AHC: At least one more 19th-century world war

    According to Wikipedia, the 18th century had seven conflicts that could be considered "World Wars", but the 19th century only had two (three if you count the French Revolutionary Wars, which started in the 18th Century). These two were the Napoleonic Wars and the Crimean War. Your challenge is...

  18. War of 1914, when is WW1?

    If war in Europe starts in 1914, but ends quickly with a peace deal after a short, sharp conflict due to the Entente mishandling her armies worse and getting defeated in the field, when would then WW1 actually happen? For the sake of argument the POD is that the BEF is surrounded and Mons and...

    Nazi Germany vs Nazi Russia

    So let's say that Germany and Russia both become fascist at around the same time and through similar circumstances. Nazis rise to power as in OTL. Russia fares worse in the events after WW1 than in OTL and loses land, communist revolution follows which fails (or the Whites win the Civil War)...
