    What If America Entered WW1 By 1916?

    OTL, the US wasn't involved (offically) in ww1 until 1917, and our role was largely in keeping money and material flowing into France and Britain. But what if America got dragged in sooner, say by spring 1916? Wilson still wins in 1912 but finds a more aggressive Germany, who extends a far...

    Why do WW1 threads always get so many replies and are full of controversy?

    I have always wondered why WW1 threads have by far the most controversy, insults but also some of the most in-depth discussion and research, even more so than WW2 threads.

    La révolution d'avril April 25th, 1917 The Nivelle Offensive which started 9 days prior but to no avail so far. Three years into WW1 and the war seemed still far from done, "Home by Christmas" is a joke but makes no one laugh. This reality falls hardest on no one more than the French Army...

    Could Britain Have Landed In Occupied Belgium During WW1?

    Britain intervened in the great war not due to direct german hostilities, or french begging, or Entente obligations, but for another reason. German actions in Belgium; their casus belli being defense of the weak (please ignore their empire.) However, almost all of Britain's involvement was on...
  20. WI: Contained war between Austria-Hungary and Russia in 1914
