My own one in respect of WW2 is this, " What if Great Britain had been the first country on Hitler's list of countries to be invaded"?
I strongly suspect that he would have won the war for Germany, no doubt at all.
A surprise invasion of Britain would have succeeded because the country was totally unprepared for a war with Germany, the 'elite' establishment was pro-Nazi in it's sympathies, all too ready to betray the country & it's people to the fascist power.
America would not have intervened to help Britain, because it was more sympathetic to the Nazis than it cares to admit & would have been happy back then, as now, to see a Europe dominated by Germany.
Germany could have used Britain as a military base from which to launch it's much vaunted attack against the Soviet Union, hitting it from the North, inside the Artic Circle, along with a southern flank attack.
In fact, had Germany only invaded Britain, America would have been ecstatically happy to see the old imperialist British Empire collapse into a heap, as it was, America was only too glad to let Britain pay for America's war against Germany, the partner of the axis of 'evil', Japan, the cause of it having to fight Germany in the first place after Pearl Harbour.
France too was militarily ignorant, with a medieval static defence mentality as displayed by the Maginot Line.
Had Hitler confined himself to defeating Britain, as well as France after the Treaty of Versaille, consolidated Germany's economic 'miracle' under Hitler, things could have been very different in a post-war Europe.
