Yeah there was a poor Romanian or Bulgarian general during WW2 who just wanted to inspect the troops and then left the airplane wrongly, running into the still active engine/propeller, so...Sometimes these things do happen without any outside involvement as a look at real history shows every so often
Maybe it’ll be one of those things that everyone thinks was murder when it really wasn’t
It's certainly an odd situation and when the initial shock dies down some will begin to speculate. This was similar to his death IOTL but with his elevated status ITTL the stakes are much higher. The only problem is that given said status there might be attempts to cover up the actual circumstances for the sake of his dignity which may end up making people even more suspicious.
It was probably Marinus van der Lubbe.If we are talking about Hitler...weeeeeell.
Another thing to consider if it does become clear Levi was murdered that then opens up its own can of worms as to who wanted him dead.Maybe it’ll be one of those things that everyone thinks was murder when it really wasn’t
It's what the revolutionary martyrs would have wanted.Time for H-man to save the revolution.
That's a pretty literal take on the bloodshed caused in the First World War being partially due to misunderstanding the potential of modern technology.Yeah there was a poor Romanian or Bulgarian general during WW2 who just wanted to inspect the troops and then left the airplane wrongly, running into the still active engine/propeller, so...
He tends towards the latter. His longer, more positive Bohemian spell in Vienna left him with a more accepting regard for "socially permissive" views whilst his differing experiences in the First World War and the subsequent revolutionary wave have left him open to the role of women and minorities in revolutionary activity but his underlying worldview retains latent antisemitism, queerphobia, racism and sexism. Although the opening graphic has led some to presume Hitler ITTL is at heart a Nazbol, Strasserite or otherwise he's more of a workerist in the worst pejorative sense. With a messiah complex.What are Hitler's views on the relative social permissiveness of the Weimar Republic? Does he view at as progress from aristocratic constraints, or does he view it as bourgeois decadence?
Lol that could be part of it but I think I read something about it many years ago. The ole memory just aint what it used to be.Could be because that's close to how Indiana Jones won the fight at the dig site in the first movie. Least that was the first thing that popped into my mind.
So does that insinuate Paul Levi's death was not an accident or am I misinterpreting something?The deliberations went on for some time but it was becoming clear that Zeigner was coming around to the idea. It was a sacrifice but one made in the name of even greater state power. In his heart, Adolf was grateful that Paul Levi’s own sacrifice had enabled this.
Just like Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg before him, he had given his life for the cause.
Pretty much, Zeigner is aware of Hitler's opportunism but he doesn't necessarily disparage it provided he's using it for the reasons he claims.TL;DR
H-man: Make me Chancellor, and I'll break free from Stalin, destroy fascism & advance the cause of socialism.
Zeigner: Ja Wohl!
I see Hitler is an opportunist. With Levi gone, the path was clear.
Glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the catch.You missed a speech mark.
Great update as always.
That's the plan at the very least, Hitler and Zeigner transcending the enmity between Communists and Social Democrats to forge a new progressive path. It's a nice idea but the practicalities of convincing people like Ernst and Gerda to be in the same party as one another is a different story.So the Communist Party and large segments of the Social Democrats becomes the German Workers’ Party (DAP).
Thanks!Brilliant as always. Love it.
It doesn't really say either way so, in a sense, you wouldn't be misinterpreting it.So does that insinuate Paul Levi's death was not an accident or am I misinterpreting something?
