    With no National Socialist German Workers' Party, what would have become of Europe post WWI?

    Lots of things. I assume that by no Nazi Party, you mean democracy in Germany survives.....

    No PLO for a start. Germany with a weak democracy, possibly socialist or left wing. Poland closer to Britain, Russia weaker, no transatlantic alliance, no UN.

    Has major implications in Asia....

    Britain and Europe more reluctant to de-colonise.....more drawn out process.

    Europe would have to co-ordinate better, no fragmentation and internecine bickering.

    Britains descent still inevitable, but their cash reserves are better

    ... communist .... with some exceptions .... but Stalin wasn't maintaining a massive air force, tank force and paratroops because he was afraid of fascism .... communists had been fighting fascists in Italy, Spain, France, and Post WW1 Weimar Germany ... and Stalin thought he was on the side of history.....

    There was a HUGE socialism movement post WWI...if it weren't for National Socialism taking the lead in Germany, there would have been a war one way or another...Spain was a large flare-up of many spot fires across Europe.
