I think that you’re being pedantic – overly concerned with minute details. We don’t want to be obligated to fit our mod storylines into your timelines or alternate timelines.
Wolfenstein 3D in May 1992 was 3 episodes. I remember from that time. Then it became 6 episodes by the time that we bought it in April 1993. Episodes 4, 5, and 6 are prequels taking place before episodes 1, 2, and 3. If you remember the Spear of Destiny ending, The Spear of Destiny takes place before the death of Hitler with Roosevelt writing a letter to Blaskowics.
If you want to nit-pick, Roosevelt, Mussolini, Eva Braun, and Hitler all died in April 1945. V.E. Day was May 6, 1945. An Almanac lists somebody else briefly in change of Germany after Hitler’s death.
I wrote a non-fiction term paper in high school that included the death of Hitler. 80 minutes before Hitler committed suicide, a particular landmark in Nuremberg was bombed and looted by the Allies or Russians, but I don’t know if Hitler knew that at the time. When the Allies and Russians were surrounding him, he killed himself. The torso was cremated and flushed down a toilet. In 1978, I think, the Russians identified a skull matching Hitler’s dental records that was kept at a Russian base. The base had to be handed over to East Germany or Poland, I think. So they cremated the skull and dumped it in a river.
DNA wasn’t normally talked about or well known in 1978, so they probably wouldn’t have kept a DNA sample to say, “Hey, we cremated a corpse and the DNA matches Hitler’s.” The first DNA test to convict a criminal was 1980 or 1981. DNA became more talked about with the 1993 movie Jurassic Park and the 1994 OJ Simpson trial. But you’re younger than me, so you honestly wouldn’t have remembered 1994.
But I don’t want to obligate anybody to follow my timeline because that would take some fun out of it.
