Its ok ochoin. I would still have liked to see Stalin "fall ill" about 15 to 20 years sooner than he did. If Adolf had been liquidated in '36 or '37, at any rate far enough before the Anschluss to keep Germany in check we may have had to deal with 50+ years of Fascist power in the world Stalin was not sitting idly by. I believe that sooner or later there would have been a clash of powers between East and West. Its interesting to think about what a Cold War would look like with the Nazis replacing the Reds as the "bad guys".

POLL DESCRIPTION

Personal logo ochoin Supporting Member of TMP wonders:

Hitler survived one (or was it two?) serious attempts on his life: a fact that offers much room for speculation on a 'what-if' basis.

However, other 20th Century figures of note also survived attempts on their life:

Lenin, FDR, De Gaulle, Truman, etc.

Which leader, if cut down early by their assassin, would have had the greatest impact on world history?
