    DBPC: The plot of Weltkrieg 2?

    So I watched the Welkrieg films (the original Adolf Hitler ones, not the Hollywood remakes from the early 2000s). And it got me wondering how plausible Weltkrieg 2 really was. For those who aren't aware, Weltkrieg 1 was a historical drama firmly grounded in the events of the actual Great War...

    Alternate TV Tropes pages.

    This is sort of a spin-off of @The Director's thread Pop Culture Oneshot Scenarios. Only now, it describes various aspects of what ever it is you can think of as if it was on a series of TV Tropes articles. YMMV, Nightmare Fuel, WMG, the works. Fire away, all.
