  • No 19th Century unification of Italy or Germany

    What shape if any would World War one have taken had Germany and Italy not undergone Nationlist Unification? Would the member states be swallowed up by the larger empires? With Austria-Hungary and the Ottomans on the decline who would have stepped up in Eastern Europe - Serbia? Without a unified Germany, would Russia have been spared falling to the Red Revolution?

    It wouldn't have happened obviously. Austria-Hungary ain't got the balls to invade Serbia without Germany backing them up. Simple as that. I'm sure there would have been numerous other smaller conflicts but nothing like WW1.

      Colonial fever guaranteed a europe centered war

      Without a Germany or Italy adding to the colonial rush, war would have come down to Britain and France, probably in the 1920's as all the remaining areas in the world were swallowed up. Probably starting with England coming to the aid of Belguim and Holland (two other colonial powers) against France, which would have drawn in Russia.
