  1. How Long Would a Victorious Nazi Germany Last?

    If the Nazis had won WW2, they would have taken over large portions of the world. How long would their government likely last before being brought down by revolution or other factors? A dozen years? A century? A millennium? Would there have been war with Japan?
  2. AHC: De-Nazification completely fails

    Under what post-war circumstances could the process of De-Nazification completely fail in allied occupied Germany. (similar to way "Hearts and Minds" failed in Vietnam) Based on your answer, how does it effect the re-building of Western Germany and Cold War diplomatic situation.
  3. WI: The Germans halt their advance to Moscow

    Okay in this ATL, let's say the Hitler and the German High Command realize around Oct-November 1941, they realize that the Soviet Union isn't going to collapse anytime soon as they saw, and halt their lines before even going upon the Soviet capital and then after improving the logistical...
  4. The Silver Knives - American (Counter)Culture in a Democracy/Fascist Cold War? (Discussion)

    Let's leave aside the how. Talking about "How Germany could've won WW2" has become a bit dull, and there are a billion threads about precisely that. For the purposes of this thread, we'll vaguely state that Germany defeated the USSR, and that the US either didn't declare war on the Axis, or that...
  5. AHC: Make Nazi Germany last longer

    With a POD no earlier than the US entry into the war, how long could Germany last?

    Fascism without Hitler

    Classical Fascists/Italian-style Fascists tend to dislike Hitler calling him not a Fascist, but a curropter of the ideology. Even Mussolini the "Father of Fascism" hated Hitler, he was simply afraid of him, basically forced into an alliance. So, with that said. Imagine Hitler dies in WW1, no...
  7. WI: The Germans aim for Stalingrad in 1941

    Okay, I haven't really seen anyone pose a question on this what if so here goes: What if in Operation Barbarossa it was planned to capture Stalingrad and the oilfields on June 1941? I am aware that resistance in the southern part of the front was especially fierce, but could the Germans hold a...

    Adolf Hitler's I.Q.

    To finish things off, we have Adolf Hitler as the final poll of the subject. Plenty of people simply deride him as stupid, and others regard him as a genius. What the final verdict on this? Was Hitler truly a revolutionary genius who failed the war out of extreme circumstances, or was he...

    Joseph Goebbels' Intelligence?

    Dr. Joseph Goebbels is highly regarded for having stellar intelligence amongst the Nazis. But is it really true? Could his extreme fanaticism indicate that he's really not too smart? Or could his manipulation really point to an extraordinary intelligence? How intelligent was Joseph Goebbels?

    Martin Bormann's Intelligence?

    Time to test Hitler's "Shadow Man", huh? Bormann couldn't be tested for his intelligence because he killed himself before he could be even captured. Bormann's time as Hitler' secretary could show he's very intelligent, or perhaps any common man can be a madman's secretary. So what was...

    Robert Ley's Intelligence?

    Probably the most questionable one. Dr. Robert Ley did not have his I.Q. tested because he killed himself before he took such a test. On one hand, he was known to act like a madman and even Goering commented that he would be an embarrassment at trial. On the other hand, he was reported to...

    Reinhard Heydrich's Intelligence?

    Since I got good results with polling for Himmler's I.Q., I guess I'll find out the intelligence of someone as equally as infamous, Reinhard Heydrich. I reckon that there will be 6 of these in total. I've heard some rumors that Heydrich was even smarter than Himmler was. But I don't know for...

    Heinrich Himmler's Intelligence?

    Heinrich Himmler is, without a doubt, one of the most notorious Nazis in the regime, if not of the most infamous humans in general history. I've always been perplexed on how smart he really is. Some may argue that he's not that smart for being so mystical in his beliefs. Others may argue that he...
  14. WI: Hindenburg Orders the Kaiser's Restoration on his deathbed?

    What would be the consequences for the Weimar Republic if President Hindenburg called for the restoration of the Kaiser as the Head of State (while simultaneously renouncing and abolishing the presidency) on the eve of his death in 1934? And I'm not just talking about a line item in his last...

    Beer Hall Putsch: Death of Adolf Hitler and the rise of the Kaiser

    2,000 NSDAP Party leaders and their Sturmabteliung march through the streets of München seeking to overthrow the Bavarian government and start a revolution in Germany. The march stops, 130 loyal Reichswehr and Bavarian police stand in their way. The two groups open fire and in the ensuing chaos...
  16. "Nazi" Top Dogs in Mittelafrika?

    I saw a Hearts of Iron Kaiserreich: Legacy of the Weltkrieg mod and notice that Hermann Goring was the head of state of Mittelafrika, the German Empire's semi-independent colony comprising most of Africa. Is this scenario possible? Is it possible that if the First World War won by the Central...
  17. WI: King Edward joined Nazi Party in 1937?

    What if King Edward VIII, during his visit to Germany in 1937 after abdicating the throne to his brother George, not only was extended (and accepted) a full fledged membership in the Nazi Party, but also joined the government? What position could he have plausibly held?(Deputy Ambassador to the...
  18. Hitler invades the Soviet Union in 1940

    Found this while surfing the web yesterday, talks about Germany attacking the USSR in 1940 rather than 1941. I recommend you read the file before commenting, it's short around 80 pages, so you should be done with it in a half hour...

    What if the US had stationed soldiers in Germany following WWI?

    Hey all, I've been doing some thinking following some of my poli sci classes. We all hear that the US entry into the League left the League without a critical member nation to maintain stability in a capacity similar to the UN. I'm not entirely certain how a US president could garner public...
  20. The Flag on High: As The World Went Dark

    This is something of a reboot of an old thread I did, with a rather different eventuality. Hope y'all like. 1. Before reviewing the course of the final conflict between the United Nations and the Axis Powers, it is worth summarising the events which brought the world to this point. The Third...
