    AHC: A Post-War Polish Vilnius

    After The Red's Decisive Darkness, or, the Aftermath of Operation Downfall

    Spoilers for this particular paragraph: After reading Paul Hyne's/The Red's Decisive Darkness, I can't help but shudder at the effects of such wholesale destruction that it has brought. Alongside the loss of Modern Japan as we knew it - at least when concerning ourselves with that specific...
  5. Could Greater Finland survive a WAllied victory without the USSR?

    In a scenario where the USSR is defeated in WW2, but the Western Allies still defeat Germany years later (Finland is neutral again at this point), would they allow Finland to keep the territories it took from the Soviet Union? If it survives, the SU would be very weak, so I guess it'd be up to...
  6. Post WW2 European borders without the USSR

    In the typical TL where the USSR falls but the Western Allies still win WW2, how would the map of Europe look once the war is over? Western Europe would probably look very similar to OTL, but I don't know what the WAllies would've done in Eastern Europe. Also, without the USSR, would they...

  8. WI: Ernst Thälmann as GDR leader

    While reading AP246's fantastic Thousand-Week Reich timeline, one of the things I found most intriguing was the Red Tide DBWI, which depicted the allies winning the war in mid-1944, and I noted this would be before the OTL execution of KPD leader Ernst Thälmann. That made me begin to ponder what...

    Retain as much pre war architecture as possible

    With a post Battle of Stalingrad POD, how could we preserve more of the pre-war buildings that were in OTL destroyed duo to the war, socialist dictatorships, modern architects, living space and cost issues and the general trend of "away with the old, bring forth the new!"? Conditions are that...

    DBWI: Germany not dissolved after WW2.

    As we all know, following the conclusion of the post-WW2 occupation of Germany, Germany as a united nation ceased to exist, being split into Prussia, Saxony, Bavaria, Hesse, Hannover, and Saarland. Today, the German states are in a political and economic union (essentially a 21st-century HRE I...

  12. Operation Downfall Japanese casualties?

    I've seen many estimates proposing casualty estimates for Allied forces in a hypothetical Operation Downfall, but I haven't seen many for the Japanese side (other than that they would have been much higher). So, if Operation Downfall had gone through, what would the casualty numbers have been...
  13. Narrow victory for Germany in WW2?

    What possible scenarios could there have been that would have resulted in Nazi Germany defeating the Soviet Union at least to the point that the Soviets would be unable to wage conventional warfare against them (guerilla warfare and occupation resistance notwithstanding) and getting some sort of...
  14. WI/AHC: Reformist Germany post-Axis Victory

    What is the most reformist/progressive Germany and/or Axis that could possibly emerge from a victorious Axis in WW2? Maybe Hitler dies in the late 1940s and a power struggle causes a Kruschev-esque figure to emerge and attempt to democratize Germany? The NSDAP said that they planned to replace...

    Threadmarks: Bukharin Succeds Stalin : What's Next?

    Hello, so I am relatively new to the forum. The first thread got locked, but now I can understand why. The intention was to simply start in a "super" medias res , with the death of this Nikolai Bukharin in 1986 between a discussion between an army general, who is in reality Zhirinovsky who in my...
  17. AHQ: Is a Soviet occupation of all of Germany in WW2 possible?

    Could the Soviets have realistically liberated all of Germany (or at least the German territories east of the river Rhine) during the closing days of WW2? And if so, could the USSR have occupied all of Germany in the aftermath of the war, similiar to how the US singlehandedly occupied all of...

    How would a President Henry Wallace have handled the end of WW2?

    Let’s say that for whatever reason FDR keeps Wallace on the ticket in 1944, and kicks the bucket in 1945 just as IOTL. Henry Wallace becomes the 33rd President of the United States, just as the Second World War is coming to a close. How would a President Wallace have handled the end of WW2? How...

    Effects of a President Henry Wallace on the end of WW2?

    President Henry Wallace is a classic AH Trope. The President-to-be shunted in favor of Harry Truman. Had Wallace managed to remain on the ticket in 1944, perhaps at FDR’s urging or some other means, and FDR dies just as IOTL, how would President Wallace handle the end of the Pacific War, the...
