    WI: Hidenburg stays in retirement ?

    Max Hoffmann and von François remain in command of the 8th Army in the East, while without Hidenburg and Ludendorff, either Erich von Falkenhayn will remain head of the OHL or someone else (maybe Hoffman himself) takes his place. What changes would it bring to the German strategy in the late-war...

    Threadmarks: England Expects More.... CH 1-1

    England Expects More from Every Man.... This is a sequel to England Expects that Every Man.... from last year. It is implicitly assumed that readers have read that one, although I think this one could be read on its own – you just need to know that events have progressed on a different path...

    DBWI What if General Hitler went for another career?

    OOC The point of divergence is that the DAP breaks apart before hitler goes to inspect it Generald Hitler is more known as "that moustache guy" on the game hearts of iron 4, and he also appears on documentaries about the 1938 German-Polish war. There is a German documentary from the 1990s about...

    WI: Earlier Spanish Flu ?

    The Spanish flu started it’s outbreak in Europe during the last months of WWI, but, what if it happened earlier ? If an outbreak started in 1916 after the first day of the Somme offensive, how would that affect the Western Front ? And what if it managed to spread to Russia ?
  5. Alternate start to WWI?

    There has been a lot of threads about one of the countries making a different, better decision at the start of WWI and how that would help them win. My question is what if all of them make the proposed better decisions, how do you think that would turn out? The war starts from the same...

    Poll: Who was the best Head of the OHL ?

    Between 1914 and 1918, The German Empire had 3 Chiefs of the “Oberste Heeresleitung”, the High command of the German army. Helmuth von Moltke “The Younger”, led it in 1914 during the Invasion of France, and is much criticized for his over cautious attitude (especially when he transferred 2 Army...
  7. What if America fought on Germany's side during WWI?

    I remember hearing somewhere that it was plausible, but I just want to be sure. If America fought on Germany's side, could the Central Powers have won? How and when could America have ended up on Germany's side? (Pretty much definitely pre-Lusitania... ) What would the resulting treaty have been...

    October 24th, 1918 Berlin An aide strides out of the meeting room in the Admiralty headquarters, sweating profusely. In his hand, he holds an order, an order that will decide the fate of the empire. He takes a handkerchief out of his tunic and dabs his forehead, quickening his pace as he...

    DBWI: No Treaty of Petrograd

    In 1915 the victorious Entente forces codified their occupation and dismemberment of the German Empire in the infamous Treaty of Petrograd. A decade later, the refusal of Bavarian troops to fire on protestors lit the fire of the Pan-German Revolution and set Europe on fire once again - and this...

    Situation of the Middle Eastern theater in a 1918 CP victory scenario?

    Basically, assume that the US under Wilson doesn't join WWI on the side of the Entente around 1917. The German Spring Offensive of Q2 1918, thus, is a success, forcing Britain and France to the negotiating table. The main question here is, what would happen in the Middle East theater, primarily...
  12. WI: Higgins boat invented before WWI

    Higgins boat made invasion of open beach possible, doing away with capturing ports. Any coast your navy controls, you can land troops and supplies. What if it was invented earlier and samples were purchased by all significant powers before WWI? Gallipoli probably succeeds I think, maybe the...

  14. War guilt clause in a CP victory scenario?

    If the CP's won WWI would there be a war guilt clause in the peace? If yes who would be labeled as the main perpetrator? If Serbia is declared guilty because of the assasination is it possible that an international organization would be created to deal with "terrorist" states? If not that would...

    AHC: French-Russian-German Alliance

    Challenge here today is to make it so that these countries are allied or at least friendly towards each other by 1900 (I'm of course referring to the Russian Empire and German Empire when I mean Germany and Russia). Bonus points if you could get this to happen before or just after the...
  16. Ulster Fought and the Kaiser Won
    Threadmarks: Introduction

    (Disclaimer: No, Imperial German Ulster does not feature in this timeline. At least, not yet.) The name of the Great European War, of 1914-1916, is in a sense as multi-faceted as the conflict itself. The name refers to the vast scale of the conflict, with armies larger than ever seen before...

    Assuming that Frances lose World War One, how the country looks like after?

    Let's say that after is 10, 20 and 30 years after. No meme content like Stalininst France or a french nazi like ideology. The peace treaty is very conservative, let's say that to regain their colonies lost to the british the germans decide to only take Madagaskar from France, and annex the...
  19. What if Russia takes Constantinople in 1913?

    During the first Balkan war after the Balkan alliance's victory the only thing between the bulgarians and the Ottoman Capitol were the last deefensive line of the Chataldzha. At that point in most european capitals it was assumed that Constatinople falling to the bulgarians is only a matter of...

    How would president Charles Hughes handle the aftermath of WWI?

    Charles Evans Hughes was an US politician noteworthy for being Woodrow Wilson's opponent as Republican nominee during the 1916 elections. He ran on a belligerent campaign in favor of US involvement in WWI (which would prove itself redundant as Wilson joined the war on the Entente's side anyway)...
