I am a little confused here. Do you mean that Hitler will ruin there relationship now, or like in the 40s?

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

Well if Hitler does try something that is what fencing sabers are for.

HITLER: GENOCIDAL MADMAN AND SHIP SINKER... 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.

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.  ;)

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.
