    Napoleon accepts the peace deal

    Napoleon rejected the Frankfurt proposals but when things were dire later on he rejected an unbelievably sweet deal, considering the circumstances. In high school I asked my history teacher why he did that. She said he thought without the hope of glory at least the French people would have...

    If Elser kills Hitler in Nov. 1939, is there going to be a compromise peace?

    If Georg Elser kills Adolf Hitler in November 1939, is there going to be an end to the war and a compromise peace shortly afterwards? Would Herman Goering--the new German Fuhrer, as per Hitler's will--have sought peace instead of continuing the war? Also, would Britain and France be willing to...

    If WWI breaks out in 1917, is a compromise peace more likely?

    If World War I would have broken out in the late 1910s--with Britain remaining neutral in World War I--instead of in 1914, would there have been a greater chance of World War I ending in a compromise peace in comparison to our TL? Basically, I'm thinking of this scenario: Franz Ferdinand...

    The Allies tell Germany to overthrow the Reds in Nov. 1918 if it wants peace

    What if the Entente/Allies would have made a German overthrow of the Bolsheviks in Russia a precondition to peace in October or November 1918? Basically, in this scenario, the Allies are going to be far-sighted enough to see that the Bolsheviks are going to be a huge pain in the ass for them...

    If Austria-Hungary makes peace in 1917, does this prevent Russia from going Red?

    If Kaiser Karl would have been willing to make peace at any price in 1917 in order to get Austria-Hungary out of World War I, would the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia have been prevented? Basically, if Austria-Hungary is willing to make peace on terms that are acceptable to the Allies (which...

    Question About Franz Ferdinand and a Separate Peace in World War I

    Had Franz Ferdinand survived the assassination attempt on him in Sarajevo in June 1914 and some future crisis (not the attempted assassination in Sarajevo) would have still triggered World War I in Europe with roughly the same alliances (Britain, France, and Russia on one side and Germany and...

    The History in War and Peace.

    I just finished reading this....rather large tome. Has anyone else in here read it? And what did you think about the history as covered in the book? The battle of Austerlitz? Borodino and the movements preceding? Tolstoys theory about mass movement or energy being the cause on most historical...

    Why was the US a signatory at the Paris Peace Accords in 1973?

    If the US involvement in the Vietnam was a mere goodwill act to help South Vietnam, why was it an active signatory at the Paris Peace Accords in 1974? Shouldn't have it let the diplomacy for the South Vietnamese themselves to handle, instead of becoming the only non-Vietnamese signatory there...

    Otto von Bismarck: the great peace maker?

    Obviously it depends on your point of view, but his priorities did change after German unification was achieved. He led the Concert of Europe to contain Russia and avoid war and considered Germany "sated" after 1871. He sought stable alliances and did not want Germany to challenge British naval...

    Napoleon's peace negotiations in 1814

    I have yet another question for people knowledgeable about Napoleon. And I fear it's yet again a question mostly unrelated to war. I've finally brought myself to work my way through the "Notices historiques sur Son Altesse le Prince Eugène" by Antoine Darnay. And halfway through I came across...

"The Turkish-Islamic Union argued it would send the wrong signal by suggesting that international terrorism is mainly a Muslim problem." And therein lies the...
