    Hitler's Mind is Transported into German Kaiser Wilhelm II's Body in 1888

    I previously created a thread about Hitler's mind being transported to Bismarck's body in 1870. However, after reading the comments on that thread, I figured that I should also ask this question: What if Hitler's mind is transported into German Kaiser Wilhelm II's body in 1888 with the help of...

    Did Hitler have more lasting effects on the world than Stalin?

    People today still drive cars that Hitler founded (Volkswagen). He laid down autobahns. And he created innovative technology, that the Allies practically stole after the war ended. Stalin efforts to industralise the USSR were reversed after he died.

    Alien Space Bats put Hitler's mind into Bismarck's body in 1870

    What if Alien Space Bats put Hitler's mind (I suppose Hitler's mind from sometime in the 1940s) in Otto von Bismarck's body in 1870? What would Hitler-Bismarck do afterwards?

    The Plot to Kill hitler Vs Valkyrie

    The Plot to Kill hitler Vs Valkyrie Las week I saw these two movies about the same historical fact, in consecutive nights. “The Plot to Kill hitler” (1990) with Brad Davis staring as Stauffenberg, somehow portrays the personal life and feelings of the guy, and most others call him as “count”...

    Did German voters know before 1933 that Hitler was going to create a dictatorship?

    Did German voters know before 1933 that Hitler was going to create a dictatorship? I'm curious as to how many Germans were aware of the possibility that Hitler was going to consolidate power for himself and his party if/after he would acquire the German Chancellorship. Did Hitler's...

    Hitler not so dumb?

    Suppose Hitler decides the final solution can wait until after the war is won? Suppose he decides war with the USSR can wait until the British surrender? Suppose he decides if war becomes official with the USA the USA must declare it? (I hope I have cut off the wiggle room:)) Suppose all of...

    Was the idea of a German-Soviet war exclusively Hitler's?

    Was the idea of a German-Soviet war exclusively that of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis? I know that the idea of an eventual German-Polish war had been flirted even before the Nazis came to power in Germany ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurt_von_Schleicher#Non-policy_on_tariffs ; "He also believed...

    Adolf Hitler's dilemma for defense of France — Beachhead defense ? "Mobile" defense ?

    Adolf Hitler's dilemma for defense of France — Beachhead defense ? "Mobile" defense ? In AD 1944, the Allied Army was planning to liberate France from the Nazi Germany's occupation. Imagine if you're Adolf Hitler, how would you dispose your armoured divisions to counter the imminent Allied...

    The invasion of France in 1940 fails and the SK overthrow Hitler afterwards

    If the German invasion of France would have failed in 1940 (as a result of France not sending its Seventh Army to the Low Countries and as a result of France defending the Ardennes more), and if the Schwarze Kapelle would have subsequently overthrown Hitler and the Nazis and failed to make peace...

    If Elser kills Hitler in Nov. 1939, is there going to be a compromise peace?

    If Georg Elser kills Adolf Hitler in November 1939, is there going to be an end to the war and a compromise peace shortly afterwards? Would Herman Goering--the new German Fuhrer, as per Hitler's will--have sought peace instead of continuing the war? Also, would Britain and France be willing to...

    Napoleon Fanboys and Hitler Fanboys: Eerily Similar

    Napoleon and Hitler fanboys alike are experts at cognitive dissonance, irrational hero worship, and cult-like followings similar to those of Julius Caesar's contemporaries and Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders today. Napoleon Fanboys 1. Absolve Napoleon's failures (ie: Russia, Waterloo) by...

    What did the Nazis Think of African Jews?

    Judaism has a long history in Africa. I am curious what the Nazi's thought, if anything, about black African Jews and Judaism.

    How easy would it have been to kill Hitler in the 1920s?

    How easy would it have been to kill Hitler in the 1920s? I've fantasized about this scenario a lot, but I don't know just how easy it would have been for a random stranger to do this in the 1920s. I mean, I would expect that it would have been extremely easy to do this before the start of World...

    Why didn't Hitler give the heavily German parts of Transylvania to Hungary in 1940?

    In 1940 (specifically after the Fall of France and the resulting German domination of Europe), there was the Second Vienna Award--which awarded northern Transylvania to Hungary (Romania previously controlled northern Transylvania). However, my question is this--why weren't the heavily German...

    Was Hitler mentally unfit to be Commander in Chief of the Wehrmacht from 1943 onwards

    Was Hitler mentally unfit or frankly too unstable to be the Commander in Chief of the German armed forces from mid-1943 onwards, if he was a Whermacht officer, will je have been relieved of command long ago and sent to a mental institution?

    Hitler occupies the Baltic countries instead of Czechia in March 1939

    What if Adolf Hitler would have occupied the Baltic countries instead of occupying Czechia in March 1939? For the record, the logic behind this would be that the Baltic countries would be a more logical Lebensraum destination than Czechia due to their lower population density.

    If Hitler died in WWI, would there have still been a Führer?

    Let's say Hitler dies from gas inhalation towards the end of WWI (he was actually in hospital for this towards the end of the war). Germany still loses, of course, and the Kaiser abdicates. The Entente impose the Versailles Treaty still, since there is no reason not to. The Weimar state still...

    Could Hitler have won the war had he had a phased approach?

    If one looks at all countries that were or potentially were opposed to 1939, then it far exceeds the Axis. Britain and France's empires were greater than Germany, Italy, and Japan, and the USA and USSR were Hitler's racial and ideological opponents. He didn't just hate Slavs, but democracy too...

    Hitler takes Holland, Lithuania, Latvia, Sweden and Estonia 1n June, 1938

    OTL After the annexation of Austria in April 1938 nobody expected war in Europe soon. Holland and Sweden least of all. The Dutch and Swedish armies were even more ridiculous in 1938 than in 1940, when Holland capitulated in 3 days, with its army fully deployed and expecting invasion, 8 months...
