    Battle of Arnhem (Operation Market Garden), September 1944. Might have shortened the war significantly, fewer would have died in the death camps, and half of Germany and the whole of Eastern Europe may have been spared a half-century of hell under the Soviet thumb.

      You are likely correct about shortening the war. You are not correct about all Eastern Europe being spared 1/2 century under the Soviet thumb. Roosevelt and Churchill willinngly and without being requested to do so gave Eastern Europe to Stalin at the Treaty of Yalta.

      Had that not happened and General Patton not been ordered to slow down, stop and even back out of Czechoslovakia, it is rather likely that his forces would have met the Russians somewhere in Poland or even on the eastern side of Poland. I have read the research of several experts (I forget names, old age) that are certain that Patton could have achieved such a race.

    Dieppe Raid 1942, might have encouraged Western Allied leaders to perform D-Day in occupied France in 1943 as they should have done rather than invade Italy.

    Change one detail of the outcome: Let Stonewall live at Chanslorsville
