You were asked – TMP link

What is your favorite historical myth?

In the final round of voting:

34% said "British lost the AWI because they lined up in the open wearing red coats."

25% said "300 Spartans held the pass all by themselves."

14% said "Germany would have won WWII if Hitler had listened to his generals."

How Germany wins WWII
1) Hitler has a massive coronary in late 1940.
2) A popular election ousts all the Nazi psychopaths
3) They enter Russia with a plan to break up the Soviet Union and grant true independence to Poland, Baltic states, Ukraine and Cossackdom (Crimea).
