I would, also, hate to know what would have happened had Hitler won. The world would, most certainly, be a different place. As suggested, the US may not be the power it is, and the power Germany has would be greater.

I do not think Hitler would have been able to control such a vast territory, particularly the Soviet Union. In short, I think a formal military victory, which would have had to include a treaty with the United States, would not have led to a lasting peace in which Germany could construct a stable empire.

I can't agree with the previous post.  If Hitler had won WWII by taking out the Soviet Union and by dominating all of Western Europe (even without invading Britain) Germany would have been a huge power.  They would have been a superpower and the US might not have been.  At the very least, more Jews would have been killed.  There would be not be any Israel.  The world would be completely different.

I would like to think that Hitler would not have lasted long even if he won.  I guess I am being optimistic, but I don't think the war would have ended until he was taken out, either by his own side or ours.
