If Germany had won the war, we would have 2 inquistions in history , the Spanish one and a German one
It has to be said that the German Army was much more civilised in it's treatment of POW's than their allies in the Imperial Japanese Army who committed atrocities against captured soldiers and civilians as a matter of policy.
Not necessarily, Iraq and Afghanistan have proved what a willing civilian population can do against supposed highly trained soldiers. But your explanation only accounts for Russia, Germany was also occupying Poland, the Balkans, France, Belguim, The Netherlands, etc etc and I was including those in my comment. Germany stretched itself too thin fighting a war on two fronts (plus Africa), crazy logic.

Antigone, don't compare apples to oranges.
Well, it all depends on the landscape.
Germany could never win a war against Russia!
Russia is just too vast! Too big!
The same mistake Napoleon made.
If you mention Belgium, The Netherlands and France... Well it's easy to control the flat planes.
No place to hide.
The hilly regions of France were another story!
The Germans knew they couldn't control them, and so they left that part of France unoccupied..
With the support of the fascist Vichy clique!
Iraq is easy to get under control. Afghanistan is impossible.
Afghanistan has mountains, with forests also.
Thousands of hiding places.
Occupying forces may have the day, but the Afghans have the night..
Just like in Vietnam.
Study some military history before anyone makes remarks about the past, please! Please!
The SS had some "divisions". The ones who took care of the concentration camps, were just scum.
They had the official title of being SS, but they had nothing to do with the fighting divisions.
Another point is, the SS always got the best material in a battle. So it was very easy to get the honor of winning that battle.
While the Wehrmacht did the dirty jobs.
The same we see in the British Army. Scots, Welsh and Irish, and also Australians, Canadians, Polish, South Africans and whatever do the dirty jobs and the hard fighting, and when a battle is nearly won, the English come in with waving standards, claiming they won the battle.
Fast forward to now and, if I was utterly ruthless and had total control over the UK's Armed Forces, I could "win" the war against the Taliban relatively easily. I'd simply withdraw all my troops and, once they were at a safe distance, Nuke both Afghanistan and Pakistan. I'd also impose a Final Solution on all UK Muslims.
Well, this quote is typical for the policy of the USA before WWII.
In fact, Truman already has said that earlier. It was published already in the 1930's.Whereas Roosevelt tended to be flexible in coping with the Russians, Truman held sterner views. "If we see that Germany is winning the war, we ought to help Russia; and if that Russia is winning, we ought to help Germany, and in that way let them kill as many as possible. . . ." he said as a Senator in 1941. This basic attitude prepared him to adopt, from the start of his Presidency, a firm policy.
Think of it what would have happened if the Soviet Union had attacked Germany!
Would the USA have helped the Nazi's?
According to what Truman said that would have been possible.
It clearly shows that the USA had indeed the wish that as much Russians would be killed as possible.
And in that way they gave passive support to the Nazi's.
They even shipped cargo to Murmansk to hide their true policy.

Penetration of the CIA spy, double agent, and other scum of Germany a lot.
Germany would surely had won the war, had it not been for Hitler interference with his generals.
here what some other guy wrote about it
" the Germans were 12 miles from taking Moscow over and if Hitler had listened to Von Manstein and went after Moscow in October instead of the dead of winter they would have taken the city with no problems instead Hitler waited until the Siberian troops who just got back from fighting the Japanese in Russia came back and counterattacked the Germans just as they were about to take the city. By the way Hitler was lazy when it came to the British he never wanted to attack the British because he was good friends with alot of their politicians it was only Winston Churchill that he hated because he wanted a peace treaty with Britain in all actuality. He did not capitalize on Dunkirk where he could have effectively taken out 300,000 British fighters and the Blitz of England was not authorized by him but by Hermann Goering. They were three weeks away from wiping the RAF spitfire bases when they thought they had already defeated the RAF so they decided to bomb the major cities of England and their industrial cities. "
So yeah, what if they did win?
Well, hitler had visions of architecture that would last thousands of years, admiring the greek temples and such. So we probably would see a lot of huge building, he also wanted to redesign berlin and rename it germania or something. He wasn't at all into the whole race thing as much as for example Himmler, Saying that it's silly to spread information about past trough media which shows the germans hunching over camp fire while the Romans and Greeks has reached the highest levels of culture. Not in those words of course.
So the holocaust would have gone it's course, germany would have established colonies in Africa and i don't really have any idea what more would happend.
Ultralars.. Are you one of Breiviks friends?
History happened like it happened.
We know all what happened.
German bombers couldn't get people on an island frightened.
That's when you are on an island. One gun is enough.
People in Norway learned that lesson a month or so ago.
The Germans could never ever conquer England.
Not even in their wettest dreams!
They could forget Scotland and Wales even more!
And Churchill really said Hitler was one of his best Allied Generals.
Thank God Hitler was a stupid ass.
There wouldnt be any diference betwen today Europe and Europe if Hitler would won , ofcourse he was dictator , and there wouldnt be freedom , but is Europe today really free and democratic with polithical corectnes and cameras that catch every move .
Yes I know comunism is German idea . When Hitler was created he was not front figure - he was just colporal with talent to speack and few hundreds folowers ( you probably know he was send in party by secret service ) . Well Hitlers party was socialistic only by name ( NSDAP) , but his folowers were greatest enemies of Socialists and Comunists . Remember Ernest Rem and SA .
Thanks for answering
What a question!, We'd all be bald.
