Here are links to a number of Alternate Histories found online:

Timelines and Scenarios Online Edit

  • Southern Cone Under the British (Y.D. Robinson). An alternate history (or parallel universe) where British soldiers, under General John Whitelocke, succeed in conquering Buenos Aires in 1807. Thus, the southern half of South America (and especially Argentina and Uruguay) becomes much more politically and economically stable than in OTL, and Argentina and Uruguay speak English as well as Spanish.
  • Clive-Less World (Tony Jones). An alternate history where Robert Clive (Clive of India) committed suicide before forcing the French from India, leading to a French-dominated world with a different path of political and scientific development.
  • Gurkani Âlam (Tony Jones). An alternate history where the Mughal Empire remains strong, leading to a world dominated by the nations of India and Europe, with somewhat more rapid technological development than in the real world.
  • Monarchy World (Tony Jones). An alternate history where there are three superpowers, the British, Russian and Chinese Empires, engaged in a three-way nuclear balance of power.
  • Puritan World (Tony Jones). A different English Civil War results in a much earlier and much nastier American Revolution. Britain never becomes a world power. By 1996, the New Commonwealth, a totalitarian Puritan theocracy controlling all of North America, Britain, Australia and most of Japan, has recently begun a world war against the combined European powers of the Octuple Alliance.
  • "Mr. Clay's War" (Thaddeus Holt). An excerpt from a much longer work, "The Prince of the Rocky Mountains," based on the proposition that Napoleon did not sell Louisiana but escaped to New Orleans in 1814, while Alexander Hamilton survived his duel with Aaron Burr.
  • For All Nails is an ongoing, collaborative online continuation of For Want of a Nail, which ended in 1971, the year the book had been written. The authors believed the world depicted at the end of For Want of a Nail was an unpleasant one — hence the name inspired by Chet's For All Time.
  • Decades of Darkness (Jared) suggests the early death of President Thomas Jefferson leading to the secession of New England, resulting in a United States of America dominated by slave owners.
  • A Shot Heard Around the World (Ed Thomas) follows from the assassination of the Prince of Wales in 1900 (who in OTL became King Edward VII), preventing the Entente Cordiale. Without Britain as an ally France and Russia are easily defeated by the Central Powers. After the war Charles de Gaulle seizes power in France, and plans a war of vengeance against the Germans.
  • A Loose Bandage (Beck Reilly) is an alternate 20th century following the failed assassination of William McKinley.
  • Mr. Hughes Goes to War An alternate history where Charles Evans Hughes is elected President of the United States in 1916.
  • "A Greater Britain" (Ed Thomas) sees Oswald Mosley staying within the Labour Party, stopping the formation of the National Government and eventually becoming Prime Minister. This has major effects on international diplomacy in the 1930s.
  • 1933 an alternative view of the 20th century post-1933 in which Adolf Hitler succeeds in creating an alliance between Nazi Germany and the British Empire resulting in the invasion and conquests of France and the Soviet Union, and the resulting long and prolonged cold war between the Anglo-German alliance and the United States.
  • Shattered World (Bobby Hardenbrook) is a devastating alternate World War II, resulting from a Soviet invasion of Poland in 1937. The timeline currently continues up to the spring of 1949 and beyond. See also, Shattered Wiki
  • Dai Nippon Teikoku: An Alternate History is a history of a Japan which loses its territories on the Asian mainland in a war with the Soviet Union. As a result, Japan never goes to war with the United States, and thus retains Karafuto and Micronesia.
  • Sealion Fails (Steven Rogers) is an alternate World War II in which Germany invades England, but the invasion is defeated.
  • For All Time ("President Chester A. Arthur" or Mike Davis) is a dystopian post-WWII scenario resulting from the death of Roosevelt shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbor, featuring horrific three-way race riots in the United States between white, black and Jewish gangs, and frequent usage of nuclear weapons around the world.
  • What if Gordon Banks had Played? - England international goalkeeper Gordon Banks does not contract flu before the 1970 World Cup quarter-final, leading to a feel-good factor based Labour victory in the 1970 general election and, later an authoritarian government under Enoch Powell and war and ethnic cleansing in Ireland.
  • Thaxted (Sydney Webb) sees a young Margaret Thatcher's political outlook changed completely when her family moves from the town of Grantham to Thaxted, in Essex.
  • Today in Alternate History a daily-updated blog, featuring "Important Events In History That Never Occurred Today" in several recurring timelines. Imagine what would be, if history had occurred a bit differently. Who says it didn't, somewhere? These items explore that possibility.
