    What if he did? It would probably end up at the same point, given that there was little room to build an empire in the Middle East, with the British and French protectorates.
    If Hitler had tried to take back the old German empire though, it could have been very different. How would Britain and France have reacted if Nazi Germany tried to take back German East Africa?
    Of course, Hitler would still have gone for Anschluss and the former German half of Czechoslovakia. The allies were really worried at that point anyway.

    Also Germany never owned the Sudetenland, it was Austrian territory.

    What the US didn't not provide in direct military action, it provided in industrial equipment and more importantly, FOOD. It basically feed the Red Army during the early years. Together they were unstoppable.
    Quite. Throughout the war, the US gave 14 million pairs of boots to the USSR...

    It would be tough, but maybe more like the imperial wars of the late 19th century all over again, as opposed to a full-scale world war.

    Aye, though ethnically German. Hitler would have some justification after Anschluss. One German people, one united Germany. That would include the Sudetenland.

    I highly doubt that Hitler would've given a stuff about Middle East colonialism when already at war.

    Hitler had no bases that could reach into the Indian Ocean. He would have to have had made some new allies there - like Iran or something - to even have a shot.

    And yes, that is the concept of Grossdeutschland <.<
