    2019 Britain ISOT to November 1944?

    Honestly at that point we'd keep the food imports coming just to soak up all that nice, wonderful tech that's going to be walking out the doors as fast as troops cycle through the area. While digital resources would be rather difficult to aquire, anything not kept under lock and key will...

    2019 Britain ISOT to November 1944?

    Objectors may voice their complaints to 21st Army Group, and the one million, twenty thousand, five hundred one and eighty men contained within who are fighting and dying while they debate the morality of ending the war. 15th and 18th Army Groups will of course receive copies of the letters, and...

    2019 Britain ISOT to November 1944?

    "Does England use the only strategic weapon they have left that isn't built around supporting and utilizing a seventy year old defensive alliance who's presence has helped sap their military into a sad joke" does not seem like an interesting question. If England does nuke, they win. If England...

    effects of Mussolini's Italy ISOT to the present?

    I expect within forty eight hours there is a Leclerc sitting in Rome with a smug look and a Legionaire on top of it playing something out of tune on the accordian while the Pastas get a quick shot in the arm in the name of Freedom. It's not an occupation, mind, just a strongly worded reassurence...

    The Alternate Patriotic Music Thread

    I actually got quite lucky for A Century Turns, since there's an OTL Zeppelin March to use. It's also interesting, because when you're working with a setting that's got expanded ability to travel- and more importantly, the cross-comunication and cultural diffusion that comes with it, you can...

    How many nukes could be PREVENTED from launching in the event of an accidental exchange?

    Once the bombers get tasked, they're gone. The codes are triple-checked for a reason, and in the case of a war you need the bombers going out because they're what have the decapatory strikes- the ICBMs are probably going to miss by a good bit in '83, so you need someone to manually shove a...

    How many nukes could be PREVENTED from launching in the event of an accidental exchange?

    The OP does not understand the way nuclear infasturcture works, methinks. Once you launch, everything flies.

    Interesting PODs not commonly used

    Most of these don't make much sense. A Chinese force, especially V Corps, will always retreat to China considering how much bad blood they have with the English. Likewise, Pelileu was a reasonably important objective to take to ensure flank security of the Philippines operations, since parking a...

    The House of Stuart Sequence

    So what's next, then? Breton revaunchism stretching to Normandy? An alliance of devils as Burgundy and Savoy unite? Ameridians finding the recipe to add tin to native copper in 800BC? Maybe even, gasp, German colonial settlers not being absolute morons when it comes to colonizing Texas?

    A Century Turns

    I'm sorry to say Best Turk doesn't get a lot of screen time until Book Four, at which point there will be exciting antics for days on days.

    Singapore within the Federation of Malaya

    I honestly doubt it'll happen. There's a lot of Malayan nationalism and other fine memes a-brewing that Singapore can cut dead politically, and considering how the power structures shook out historically there's not much you can do to change the fact the Malay heartland is on North Borneo, while...

    What if, the Saunders-Roe SR.A/1 jet-propelled fighter flying boat

    What, you think a fjord is calm or a place you can plonk down the repair shops and fuel tankers for these maintenance monsters? The British are flat broke and trying very hard not to become an American arms subsidiary right now, so they're making the most economical purchases they can...

    Kindle rankings

    Likewise, the American Server no longer displays any books from the Phase 9 publishing run. Analytics is going to have to go to bed until the Phase 9 books start showing up in other means of calculating metrics, and other metric tests will need to go on hold until Phase 10.

    Coiler's Review of Agent Lavender (and other SLP books)

    So are these still ongoing, or has it stopped for some reason? I'd love to read a review of A Century Turns that isn't "Five stars, needs more waifus and politics".
