    Threadmarks: OP

    To the Victor, Go the Spoils Welcome to the world of 'To the Victor', a graphical history of the world following a victory of the Central Powers in the Great War.

    DBWI: Moroccan Crisis Doesn't Start Great War?

    1905- Kaiser Wilhelm's backing of the Moroccan Sultan Abdelaziz against France and Britain's influence in the region leads to the North African monarch joining the Triple/now Quadruple Alliance. This leads to France declaring war on Morocco, citing the lost investments, triggering the defensive...

    Die Alte Welt Hat Überlebt- A Central Powers Victory Collaborative Timeline
    Threadmarks: Introduction, King of Ireland

    So I really wanted to do a timeline involving a victorious Central Powers in WWI, as well as a graphic TL. Eventually, I figured out I’d just do both, but didn’t have the time, knowledge, and bandwidth to execute it myself. So I decided this could be a collaborative timeline, in which everybody...

  7. Germany wins the First World War: Speculating about its political future

    I don't know if this particular subject has been discussed at length in other threads speculating about a Central Powers victory in World War One, but I've often wondered about what political direction Germany itself would move in if it were to come out on top at war's end. No matter how the war...

    DBWI: Diffrent European borders post WW1?

    What if the maps of post war Europe were redrawn differently? What if the Central powers were punished less harshly? As we learned in school, this is what Europe ended up looking like at the end of the war: This map forgot that Britain owned India, but it’s mostley correct. OOC: I saw this on...
  9. Rethinking the Kaiserreich, or a surviving Triple Alliance

    I have long considered that Italian neutrality- or even better, Italy honoring the Triple Alliance- was th easiest way to secure a German victory, even given 1914 conditions. Italy remaining neutral in the conflict means bolstering Austrian performance in 1914-1915, or else forcing her to make...
  10. DBWI: Hungary without Transylvania?

    Transylvania had always been a major part of the "Lands of the Crown of St. Stephen". However, towards the end of the First World War, the Entente had considerations of splitting Transylvania off, probably to join a pro-Entente Romania. What if this plan had come to pass and greatly reduced the...

    Some of you may be familiar with Horace Cole, an early 20th century Cambridge student who was friends with Virginia Wolf and her brother Adrian Stephen; history remembers Horace as the man behind the “Zanzibar Hoax” and the “Dreadnought Hoax” when he fooled government officials and the British...

  14. What if America took Spain in the Spanish American War?

    There was a alt map, which can't be found now, where America took Spain. This resulted in America joining the Central Powers and so the Central Powers winning. For this to happen America would need to be stronger and Spain weaker, and the Spanish want to ruled by America than their own...

  19. Italy Avoids Fascism

    Let's say that due to some small unspecified (and unrelated) changes, Mussolini dies on the Isonzo front in 1917 (instead of only being wounded) and Italy is granted their fair share (including Dalmatia) at the end of the war. Would this be enough to steer Italy away from fascism? What would...
