I'm vacationing in Barcelona for a few days, so I have decided to post a few Spanish scenario ideas.

Homage to Catalonia - The Republicans win the Spanish Civil War...and the Republic promptly fractures. Stalinist, Trotskyist, socialist, anarchist and democratic states populate the Iberian peninsula, bickering among themselves as the Cold War goes on.

The Not-So-Splendid Little War - God (or Cthulhu) himself helps Spain in the Spanish-American War. A freak storm sinks America's Caribbean fleet, with yellow fever killing what forces do land in Cuba. Germany declares war on the US and prevents Dewey from reaching Manila Bay. The entire thing is a farce for the US, and gives Spain enough confidence and indebtedness to Germany to sign some very friendly treaties with Berlin. Spain retains the Caribbean and sells the Philippines to Germany.

Forget the Maine - The USS Maine incident never happens, and neither does the Spanish-American War. The Philippines is eventually sold to Japan after the Hispano-Japanese War, while the US buys Cuba. A richer Spain manages to avoid some of the trouble of the 20th century as a result.

[No name yet] - Spain is victorious over the Dutch in the Eighty Years' War. Dutch Protestants move to England and Cape Colony as the Spanish reinstitute Catholicism with a vengeance. Meanwhile, European power politics continues, especially as religious tensions brew in the Holy Roman Empire.

You should do a map when Thomas Dewey won in 1944.

If he wins because FDR dies, then that is both plausible and has interesting implications for the post-war order.

Thanks for liking it. A another one is South Korea falls to North Korea before MacArthur could show up. Now we have a Red Korea.

Great! If expensive. The Euro is not forgiving to American tourists. :p

Yeah, I figure. Glad you had fun at least. Did you ever check out the El Cid thing I mentioned?

I've been looking through AH.com threads about him. I'm getting some interesting ideas from them!

I'm just curious: are you willing to give the "Universal Century" Gundam TL a shot?

I already have a massive workload, and I think you've done a great job with it already. So no, sorry.
