What If?

Came across something crazy today.

World War II Axis Invasion Plans for the United States
This kind of stuff always catches my attention.

As a thought experiment or real fear, possible Nazi invasion plans for the United States were fabricated for Life magazine. From the article over at io9:
These diagrams from the March 2, 1942 issue of Life detailed the Nazi invasion of America shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Check out such alternate reality battles like the bombing of Detroit and invasion of Norfolk, Virginia.

Link is here. Worth a look.

More details can be seen here.

Have a good night.

I've heard that it's been long understood that no country would dream of invading the US for all the guns in closets.

Don't know if this is absolutely true or not though.

Sedentary,
besides all the guns the logistics of invading the US is impossible IMO.
