There were so many things that could have altered the outcome of the war. London was on the brink of mass riots during the Blitz, as the bombers targeted the poor industrial sector instead of the more wealthy residential and commercial areas. Then one day a bomber missed its target and hit Buckingham Palace...when those poor cockneys saw that the royal family was getting it as bad as they were, they calmed down.

Hindsight, like they say, is 20/20. We could just as easily be sitting here saying "If Hitler had put off Operation Sealion and instead invaded the Soviet Union before they got too powerful, he might have won." Truth of the matter is, given Hitler's objectives (defeat bolshevism, annihilate of undesirables) I don't think many people could have done any better, assuming "better" is an appropriate word to describe coming closer to achieving Hitler's objectives.

Then one day a bomber missed its target and hit Buckingham Palace... I believe the story goes as follows : A bomber heads to buckingham palace, a british fighter see's the bomber, he has no ammunition left and was in fact on his way home to his base. When he sees the german bomber heading to buckingham palace he makes a decision, a heroic decision. He rams his plane in the German bomber making it missing it bombs and possibly crash. Himself going down aswell, crash landing at a street around buckingham palace.

DiosHadn't it been for Hitler, Germany wouldn't have increased it's army's power as greatly as it did in the 30s, now, he might have been good with speeches and army developement, but he had the strategic skills of my 8 year old sister, the most useless things the germans made, like the Maus, the Sturmtiger, etc, were all pretty much because of his requests, and he didn't had a clue of what use each part of the army had, he wanted to use the rail guns on tanks, among other insane ideas. And to make it worse, nobody dared telling him his ideas were stupid, they actually encouraged him. Anyways, it's true that even if he hadn't screwed things up, the allies would have still won.

I heard a guy talking on the Military Channel the other day and his arguement was that Germany would have been much better off sinking much more into the production of tried-and-true weapons systems (Panzer IV for example) than trying to produce the wonder weapons.

Germany could have won WWI, not WWII. By WWII there were simply too many people. Look at the US in Iraq. The US has beaten the army but they have not won the war. There would have been revolts and gurrilla fighting until the third riech was overthrown Germany did not have enough people to control that much area and the numbers of peoples in it. That is even assuming it would have been possible to have beaten the armies of Russia and Britain which it probably wasn't. As far as the atomic bomb is concerned Germany wasn't as close to developing it as the history channel likes to claim.

I dont think you people understand that the Waffen SS had forces from most countires that where taken over, Each conquest brought more divisions, Hitler lost the war he was a moran, however Barbossa wouldnt off happened if it hadnt of been for hitler. Germany would of sued for peace if they had managed to kill Hitler so no Hitler no ww2 ladies :uhoh:
