Hi, I just finished my coursework and Y13-go with the one you're most interested in, but also the one with the most articles & research papers online to read! makes your research and essay writing so much easier :smile:
Simple rule of thumb, pick the one that genuinely interests you the most. It will make writing and researching so much less of a chore.

I generally love the origins of WWI, but I'm not enthusiastic about the question over German imperialism.

I like the look of the Russian authoritarianism question, particularly as the date of 1924 allows plenty of argument.

To me the main question is how authoritarian the USSR was in 1924 (death of Lenin, accession of Stalin) compared to a range of previous Tsars - and then whether Stalin took it further.
