  2. Axis abandon North Africa campaign

    If the Germans had made the Italians pull out of North Africa instead of sending Rommel to reinforce them, wold the losses in men and material have made a significant difference in the Italian campaign or Eastern Front? I was always under the impression North Africa was basically a sideshow...
  3. Germany Declaring War On The United States Doesn't Make Any Sense

    Of all the inexplicable things the Germans did before and during WW2, this still baffles. Even factoring in the Nazi ideology and how it guided some of their absurd decisions, it still doesn't make any sense. The United States and Germany had passive hostilities regarding the Battle of the...

  7. Japan Doesn't Invade China, Longest Possible Pacific War?

    Let me start by saying I haven't done a ton of research into the who, why, and how of the Japan-China war other than "Imperial Japan wanted conquest,resources" but let's say they never invade China(things are smoothed over following the Marco Polo Bridge Incident) how many resources and men does...

  14. WW2 Japan attacks Siberia , and why did Japan fear the USSR and not the US in WW2?

    I've always wondered how a Japanese front in Siberia would have affected WW2. As we know, the Siberian armies kept there to deter her which were moved West after intelligence indicated Japan would not attack, are what saved Moscow. The reasons for not doing so are obvious: 1. The battle of...
