Heinlein wrote a story where Hitler didn't come to power. Instead someone worse did come to power. Only in the US. American became a giant military zone run by something akin to the Taliban. "If This Goes On..." part of the `Rebellion 2100` collection of stories.

If he'd murdered a wounded enemy? He`d regret that the rest of his life.

If it wasn`t Hitler it would have been someone else, perhaps someone who`d win the war for the Nazis!!
Or the Communists would have won that critical election and Stalin`s equally Evil USSR would have invaded France...

Besides, it`s a real `long shot` that this even happened.

Gotta be honest, my BS meter is pegged at 10 with this story but at any rate entertaining the story for argument's sake: this is stupider than staring at yesterday`s lottery numbers and writing a book on how your life would have changed if you had only picked them.

It'd cross my mind for sure, but there`s no telling if someone worse would`ve "happened" instead or people that Hitler would`ve ended up NOT killing would`ve turned out to be mass-murderers ... there`s no way to know what alternate timelines would be and just because one is horrible, doesn`t mean the others wouldn`t have been. Not to mention everything that`s happened in the last 70+ years that would be totally different.
