  2. Discussion About Bukharin Soviet Union & How World War II & The Cold War Change
    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...
  3. AHC germany-led allies VS Soviet union

    DBWI: Divided Germany, United Japan

    What if the Big Three had agreed on a different post-WW2 plans for the defeated Axis Powers? Specifically, what if the fates of Germany and Japan were reversed? Germany is divided into a Western-aligned nation and a Soviet-aligned nation while Japan remains whole & undivided. What could bring...
  5. Alternate Panther Wotan defense line

    I was thinking about the panther wotan line after the 1941 winter Germans generals manage to ask for a strong line of defense in the rear . HH response is to create A VERY strong panter wotan line (without to pay the worker (...) it s possible to do lots of work) along the rivers...
  6. AHC/WI: Fascist Britain, Democratic Japan.

    What if, in response to post-WW1 economic and political strife, Britain falls to a form of Fascism, akin to OTL Japanese militarism. Meanwhile, Taisho democracy somehow endures in Japan. Cold Anglo-American relations, and warm Japanese-American relations see Japan abandon the Anglo-Japanese...
  7. Non-genocidal Japanese Empire

    POD any time after 1910 (Japanese annexation of Korea). How can Japan keep control over its colonies without the situation devolving into the egregious violations of human rights seen in OTL? Is there any way for Japan to both keep long-term control over its colonies AND provide for good living...

    Potential impacts of the A-bomb being dropped over Germany

    Something I've been wondering for awhile lately, but let's say that for whatever reason either the lab in Los Alamos somehow manages to put together Trinity earlier or/and the Nazis (probably by sheer dumb miraculous luck) somehow manage to last just long enough to justify the "Germany First"...

    ww2: Naval stratergy after Axis Victory in the eastren Medditeranian

    As in the title, what do the fighting navies do if, due to some tremendous British blunder, the axis powers find themselves masters of Egypt, Cyprus and Malta? I'm Imagining this happens some time in 1941 and some damage has been done to the Suez Canal. What can/does the remainder of the...

    AHC: Improve the Kriegsmarine's destroyer force

    In the lead-up to WW2, the German Kriegsmarine faced the problem of trying to design a series of ships it had absolutely no experience with: the fleet destroyer. After some thought what they produced were the 4 ships of the Type 1934 class, and the 12 ships of the Type 1934A class...
  11. WI Joachim Von Ribbentrop never existed?

    WI: Gneisenau on Operation Rheinübung?

    Second of the Scharnhorst class, Gneisenau was an unlucky ship, meeting her demise as an active combat ship due to an unlucky bomb hit in February 1942, after the Channel Dash. However, perusing her Wikipedia page, this comes up...

    AHQ: Royal Navy carrier strike on Wilhelmshaven, 1939

    In our much beloved TL, The Whale Has Wings, a powerful ATL Royal Navy carrier force with ATL aircraft conducts a night strike on Wilhelmshaven in 1939, to the detriment of the Kriegsmarine. My question is, could a similar thing be done IRL with OTL's resources? The POD is that, after the...
  14. Effects on WW2 in Europe w/ no Pacific theater

    The difference in this timeline is that Japan is not a part of the Axis, and doesn't start any wars after the Russo-Japanese War. I'm wondering, from a military-strategic perspective, how would the unfolding of events occur in Europe during the ALT-WW2? I'm fairly certain that Germany will...

    WI: Petain Joined The Resistance With De Gaulle?

    Philippe Petain is ill-regarded in France today, for his role in the pro-nazi Vichy Regime. Prior to that he was a fierce French patriot and nationalist- the Lion of Verdun. So, what if, after the capitulation of the 3rd Republic, he made his way to Algiers with Charles De Gaulle, the up and...
  16. How does the situation in Israel/Palestine play out with no WW2/Holocaust?

    IIRC there were several proposals before WW2 by the UK/League of Nations to partition Palestine into a separate Jewish/Muslim state. Would this ever happen without WW2 and the horrors of the holocaust? And if this did happen, could this lead to an even bigger more prosperous Israel with all the...

    Q: Would Hitler still be the man we know if he wasn't kicked out of art school?

    Yes yes. I am the funny. Anyway, I remember reading somewhere that because of Hitler being kicked out of art school, he would eventually be active in politics and become the mass murderer we know today. If Hitler wasn't kicked out of any of the schools he attended, what would have become of...
  18. WI Larger and better Poland pre ww2 Effects?

    Basically Poland ww2 + east prussia and Lithuania effects and lastly some of slovakia and all of Latvia (Just look at map) Basically they did that because they got more lucky at the ww1 treaties and other events went more into their favour Like higher eco and income growth and more development...

    "!Ellos Tampoco Pasarán¡": Nazi Occupation of Spain?

    In a scenario where the military uprising in the summer of 1936 is more disjointed and eventually falters and then collapses in on itself after a period of Civil War in Spain, what would happen to Spain in 1940 following the Nazi occupation of France? Let's say, for the sake of the scenario, the...
