Facts?? I've seen no facts from you, just some silliness about Germany increasing it's industrial output by 400% across the board. Even if that was true, which I seriously doubt, it's irrelevant. It didn't help Germany in the slightest. And if you want to assert facts, it's incumbent upon you to look them up and present them with appropriate citations. Take a look at the reference I made to Kennedy's book to see how it's done. Well, if you think so, prove it by citing references that say so. It's obvious you don't even understand what Kennedy is talking about when he says "war-making potential". If you did, you wouldn't come back with a non-sequiter like "Germany increased it's industrial output 400% bla, bla, bla....". That is not the same thing as increasing war-making potential as defined by Kennedy. It involves a lot more than just piling up fighter planes on some airfield somewhere. What Kennedy means is that Germany's ability to effectively wage war decreased as time went along, and I defy anyone to find any reputable source that says otherwise. For the rest of it, you have moved completely away from the original "what-if" proposition, and as it appears to be the case that you can't or won't present any arguments for the original question, this discussion is over as far as I'm concerned.
