Who is likely to be Hitler's successor as Nazi leader in the event of a Nazi victory in WWII?

Thing is, Heydrich was the only person in this core nazi lot who had the experience of governing a province with ruthless efficiency. Plus he was probably the best guy to ensure that a nazi state remains nazi.

Himmler would have had a brief, or not so brief stint as Fuhrer but eventually he would have chickened out (retire to his chicken farm), passing the batton to Heydrich.

What about Goebbels?

Would have voluntarily chosen to be buried alive with Hitler's corpse.
LOL! :D

Seriously, though, I think that you're probably correct that Heydrich is the best bet for Hitler's successor in a scenario where the Nazis win WWII and where Heydrich lives.
