Thank you, for the response! It also came to mind that I've had another idea...say for example that the Third Reich was able to win WWII and Hitler lives to die of natural causes. I know we would definitely see a power struggle, and maybe even a small civil war. But if it were a person who was not too fond of the SS (whoever that may be), would we see a purge of the members of the SS? Possibly seeing a scenario similar to Lavrentiy Beria with Heinrich Himmler?Braubitsch, Kleist, von Boch, Blomberg, Halder (most definitely) and maybe Keitel. As long as Guderian and Mannstein hang around, other new plug in German generals and the general staff will keep the Wehrmacht humming along as RTL. The tactical operators, who are competent, and who can rise, are just too deep in that army for a Stalin like purge to have a similar effect.
