It's interesting to think about the tyrants of history and how they might have turned out if circumstances had been different, or if their way of viewing the world hadn't been warped by their circumstances. So when you think of the biggest tyrant in human history. One has to wonder. What if some of the formative experiences that turned Hitler into Hitler, didn't happen or happened differently. Hitler was stationed at the front during world war I from the very start to the very end and he himself said it was the best time of his life, and the only time of his life he felt like he mattered. Any people even passively familiar with the World Wars knows that Hitler considered Germany's loss in the first world war a humiliation, and it was formative experience that eventually led to him becoming the monster we know in pretty much every bit of World War II media. But this got me thinking. What if Hitler had been on the winning side in the first world war. What would have his life after the war been like? Would he have still gone into politics? Would he have gone back to art school? Would he have been able to rise to power and gain backing for his Anti-Semetic beliefs? I'm asking this question because a lot of timelines and question on this board are about broad sweeping historical events. Quite a few I feel do not focus much on how these big sweeping impactful events influence the individuals who are caught up in them, and how changing these big sweeping historical events would impact the individuals. So with no alien space bats involved whatsoever. If Hitler was on the winning side in World War I. The Great War. How is his fate changed, how are the events he caused in the OTL changed?
