    PC: An Alternate WWII With a Surviving Tsarist Russia + Japan vs. Britain + France?

    Is this scenario plausible? : Russian Tsar Nicholas II dies of typhoid fever in 1900 (as he apparently came close to doing in our TL). Thus, this younger brother Michael becomes the new Russian Tsar. Due to better leadership, Russia completely avoids the Russo-Japanese War and also fights...

    Tsarist Russia

    Is it just me or has there been a serious lack of discussion regarding Russia during the Imperial period? You can't swing a dead cat around here without knocking into a Soviet thread and I think it's time we began a serious discussion about its predecessor. Well the Cold War is all well and...
