Germany had Hitler and his Aryan buddies enslaving anyone that wasn't blue-haired/blond-eyed whatever. Italy had Mussolini coining words like "corporatism". Japan was busy killing off the Chinese, the Russians signed a non-aggression pact against China, Chinese/German ties dissolved... Had history unfolded differently and the Axis had won against the Allies, I wonder which of the three Axis nations would have turned on their partners first. If Hitler waited even one day in regards to going after the Russians, history could have been irrevocably changed. Chances are, Hitler would have mopped the floor with Hirohito and Mussolini, nuts as he was. Or maybe Mussolini would end up winning, staying in the shadows and letting the other two clobber each other and then strike. If had Mussolini lived, what he would think of history as it unfolded around him. Or Hitler for that matter, both of them seemed to believe in the same anti-life beliefs but apply it somewhat differently. But the Axis lost. And how Hirohito wasn't sent to trial for his involvement, as leader and thus ultimately responsible for his country... What if Japan would have found a way to clobber Italy and Germany first? Seems as unlikely as Italy double-crossing.
