It sounds rather unlikely, especially since the Leviathan is headed towards Japan.

Hitler doesn't get stabbed that easily, eclipse100. He would most likely survive and try to run away while his comrades give him covering fire.

Hitler will TRY to ruin their relationship during the Great War. For example, an enemy kills the husband and the wife wants revenge.

HITLER: GENOCIDAL MADMAN (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holocaust) AND SHIP SINKER (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ShipSinking)... OMG BUT LIKE WHICH ONE IS MORE EVIL?!?!


Seriously, now.  I think the dude would have a couple of more important things on his agenda.
Title: Re: Adolf Hitler, the threat.
Post by: ItalianRose5 on November 21, 2010, 09:05:22 AM
Hitler was in France and Belgium during WWI.  So unless he takes a detour, probably not.  But, I could see him popping up in the future (40s).  It will be cool if Scott wrote another series during WWII but with different main characters.  I'd like to see what his world is like at that time.

Hitler has a difficult childhood. Many of his siblings died and his evil father abuse him. Poor man. A troubled kid to the evil adult dictator who met a terrible end. Hitler is also a Jew.

A lot of people have bad childhoods without becoming genocidal dictators... he's not going to get any sympathy from me on that score.  ;)

Quote

Unproven and now disbelieved by many historians.

Ditto.

In the real world, Franz Ferdinand's sons (Duke Max and Prince Ernst) were vocally anti-Hitler and were interred in a concentration camp because of it.  So I'm sure Alek would likewise clash with Hitler... of course it would be incredibly epic, because hey, it's Alek...

...but who's to say that the unique circumstances that led to Hitler taking power would even arise in the Leviathan world?  If the war's shorter (and it might be) then the economic impacts on Germany would be less devastating.  If Alek holds his empire together... if Germany is more emphatically defeated... if Hitler is KIA in 1914... if, if, if.  It's fun to speculate about, but I don't think we should take WWII as a given here.

Guys...Hitler wasn't involved in WW1, where the Leviathan time period is placed. Hitler was WW2.

actually Hitler was fighting for Germany in WWI.  He was in his 20s.  When I said he was in France and Belgium at that time, that's where he was stationed.  He was a decorated WWI veteran.

None taken, Beth.  This is just a fanfiction and a theory of what will happen. Scott will decide if the monster will ever appear.

hitler was in WWI but just fighting. he isn't in their time frame. well, he is but he wasn't in power yet, and during the time he was in power alek and deryn would be in their 40s. and the series of books would have stoped following their POV.
