This is my first thread so be patient if this has been asked before. I did searches for a quicker Allied victory in World War 2 and all the PODs I could find were either before the war or very early in it. I wondering what are some good realistic PODs that that take place after the US enters, that could lead to a quicker victory. What strategy could the Allies take to win more quickly, or was our timeline arguably the quickest. Some PODs I heard of but not sure if their realistic or not, or if they even would lead to a quicker victory are: MacArthur being captured or killed on Bataan and the US focusing on a single central pacific drive. Successfully closing the Falaise pocket A successful Market Garden A successful operation Saturn, where the German army in the caucuses is cut off after Stalingrad. I’m sure there are many others.
