When I will have finished my time-travelling device (any day now), I will (or will have, or would have) advise the Führer, il Duce and Hirohito in 1940 to execute one of their enemy POWs for every civilian the Allies killed.
The rate would go up to 10:1 in 1941 if the Allies would continue their terrorist bombings.
Mebes ya should tell HiTLER to reconsider Operation Barbarossa. Or better yet, go way back & make sure America stayed out o' da Great War. O' course, unintended consequences would surely happen- some possibly horrendous- as da Furst Rule o' Time Travel is ne'er, e'er fuckin' interfere- don't e'en step on a fuckin' butterfly.
I would send Hitler a complete version of David Irving's book "Hitler's War" to change World War 2. Preventing the USA from joining the Great War would have been more effective, but also more difficult, certainly after the bankers had lent billions to the UK and France in 1915. I wouldn't know of a single person to send a history book from the 21th century to that then could have used that knowledge to prevent America's entry in World War 1. I believe Woodrow Wilson would only have been more encouraged to involve America in the War if he had known its full consequences.
I`m re-reading Hitler's War 1942-1945 now. In the 1944 chapter David Irving describes suggestions made by Ribbentrop to execute allied airmen that targeted civilians, but the problem was to prove that a specific captured pilot was guilty of such a crime, and nothing came of it. By that time Germany itself was firing V-1 and V-2 missiles at London.
