    What would Latvia and Estonia look like after 100 years of German rule?

    Had Germany won WWI (by keeping the US neutral and making concessions in the West so that it could keep its territorial gains in the East), and had Germany been able to hold on to Latvia and Estonia for the next 100 years, what would these territories have looked like right now? Would they have...

    2018: How many countries 100 or 70 years?

    A lot of countries were created or recreated at the end of the " Great" war( some european, like Poland or Estonia).

    100 years ago today General Allenby gave Britain one hell of an early X-mas present

    Jerusalem, the faithful city, achieving what so many before him had failed to do for centuries (of course unlike his predecessors he had tanks which obviously helped). Unlike the Kaiser who'd had the ancient walls altered so he could ride through the city Allenby dismounted and walked through...

    PC/WI: The UK with a population of 200 million?

You can include the land mass of Ireland to make it so. It must be from natural increase, ie no immigration from outside...

    Was it ever possible to have a 100,000-man army in a war?

    Whenever I watch historical documentaries about ancient warlords, on occasion it would say that such-and-such led an army of 100,000 men to whatever they were going to conquer. Yet I thought such an army would be impossible to control and maneuver. Now, it would make sense if the commander had...

    Biggest media hoaxes from 100 years ago?

    Yesterday I was reading about the history of the press/media. I read that in the pre-Civil War era the media was essentially so driven by lies and gossip that one morning when news hit that the Civil War had begun many people just dismissed the newsboys because of it. Apparently that issue of...

    England won 100 years war

    This is a doubt I had time ago. Imagine that the English power was able to defeat the young "France", conquering Paris and forcing the French nation to castle in the South. Which would have been the evolution of continental Europe with a wide English feud in Northern France? May be with Paris...
