    What if Hitler got to have Genghis Khan, Napoleon, and Alexander the Great to be strategic military advisors during WW2? Assume that they had 2 months before hand to study and familiarize themselves with modern warfare and technology.

    -Would WW2 itself have been impacted? If so, how?
    -How would this have impacted the subsequent Cold War?

    I for one know that there is no f'ing way Genghis Khan would have let the invastion of Normandy happen lol he would have seen it coming I bet...

    They would probably die from modern disease.

    Hitler wasn't lacking in skilled generals. He just didn't listen to them. Now if we had as Chancellor of Germany, Napoleon in America, Hannibal in England, and Alexander in Russia, that would be interesting.

    Alexander's phalanx would've been crushed by the T-34's

    I would think they would have the strategic minds of a private in modern tactics.

    This what-if scenario is impossible.
