Who is likely to be Hitler's successor as Nazi leader in the event of a Nazi victory in World War II? I know that Hitler designated Goering as his successor in 1939 (and privately in 1934 before that) and Hess as his designated successor #2 in the event that something would have happened to Goering, but would Hitler have still had this attitude in a scenario where Nazi Germany would have won World War II? In such a scenario, would Hitler believe that Goering is the man that Nazi Germany needs to continue his own (Hitler's) legendary vision for Germany? Or would Hitler ultimately come to the conclusion that his vision is best served by someone else after his own death?
