Do you think that if there wasn't a Hitler, or Hitler was a different person,, World War II could have been different? Do you think that if Hitler didn't hate Jews, more of them would have fought for Germany? If Japan never attacked America, then do you think that Britain might have been taken over by Germany?Uncle Larry (talk) 17:12, 4 February 2016 (UTC) Uncle Larry

Is there a point in all this? Not trying to chase you off, but I want to know why you are starting all these forums.StickySock (talk) 17:30, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
There is nothing inevitable about history. Change something significant and you will get significantly different outcomes. I have not idea what the different outcomes would be though.--Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 17:32, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
Well, antisemitism and hostility towards the Allies was pretty prevalent in Germany back then, and the republic had become unstable due to the dire economic times - someone else could have taken Hitler's role... And the thing that probably actually prevented Hitler from launching an invasion of Britain was his breaking of the non aggression pact with the Soviet Union and the resulting war on two fronts, the US only became an issue much later -- (talk) 18:02, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
