Yeah, all those "what if..." moments of history. The scary ones show ways that Hitler might have won.<quoted text>
Sad they missed Hitler.
As I recall the specifics of the incident, a German unit had advanced to a farm house. A British unit in the area saw them, and sent word to their higher ups asking for permission to recapture the farm house. Hitler and the rest of the unit were kicking back and taking a break from the war, while being observed by the Brits. Finally, the Germans pulled back to their own lines. he Brits received word to advance sometime AFTER that.
