What would happen if the USSR made an alliance with Germany in 1940?

45
After the start of the Second World War, the Third Reich organized negotiations with the Soviet government. The USSR was invited to join the so-called "Axis". It was an aggressive military alliance of the three countries: Germany, Italy and Japan.


Then, at the end of September 1940, these countries signed the Tripartite Pact, according to which Germany, Italy and Japan demarcated between themselves zones of influence on the planet. Later, some Eastern European states joined the union, as well as Thailand.

According to some historical According to the data, the USSR accepted Hitler's proposal for consideration and put forward a number of requirements. In exchange for the entry of the Soviet Union into the "Axis", the communists surrendered to Iraq, Iran, Bulgaria, Yugoslavia and Finland.

Berlin refused and negotiations were frozen. Less than a year later, Germany attacked the USSR.

But what would happen if Hitler agreed to the demands of Moscow?

    So Hitler violated the non-attack pact ... And what would have prevented him from breaking the agreement ... It would be the same ...

      Not really. There would be no Britain then, and maybe the USA. And the war would have been different.

        Reasoning on the topic, square is warm, and round sour ...
        The Altistoria website is more appropriate for such speculation. And even there, they understand that such an alliance between the USSR and the Hitler Reich was impossible.

          Well why. The Reich entered into an alliance with Japan, where the "non-Aryans" lived and live, and which, among other things, also accepted European Jews

                  Have you just shown that your degree of lack of education or an attempt to impose your carelessness when reading someone else’s comments, pretending to be speculation for my words? I have written the answer to Balu - "" Many of those writing about the Great Patriotic War like to reproach Stalin with economic cooperation with Hitler Germany in 1939-1941. Depending on the views of the authors, estimates of Soviet-German pre-war trade range from "miscalculation" ("an unsuccessful attempt to pay off Hitler and delay the start of the war at any cost") to "crime" ("conscious support of the Nazi regime"). However, the accusers of Stalin amicably agree that this step was erroneous and harmful. As in the case of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, the arguments put forward by them can be reduced to two: moral inadmissibility and practical inappropriateness. We will consider them in this order.

                You really are sure that the USSR had to rush headlong to "save" those who themselves were preparing the war against the USSR?
                The Germans laughed a lot. When they captured the documents of the French General Staff with a description of the planned bombing of Baku.

          -and also you have: 1) The General Staff, which directly contradicts you on all issues of the war (starting almost from coming to power until 1945)
          2) A significant disloyal part of the officers (parallel to the Wehrmacht divisions of the SS did not just arise)
          3) Already strong enough enemy army
          4) Not mobilized industry (and only by 1943 began to translate)
          One must be a complete adventurer, such as Hitler was - in order to attack the USSR in such circumstances. Only complete adventurism can push this

    Germany gave a loan to the USSR for 100 lei marks of gold. Perhaps that is why Stalin did not believe that Hitler would attack, even when our ships were forbidden to leave German ports. From Germany came machine tools, ammunition, equipment, machinery, medicines, chemistry. To Germany - strategic fuel, raw materials, grain, etc.

      If anyone knew that there would be a war, it was Stalin. What the country was preparing for with the help of industrialization. This was precisely the main task of industrialization to survive in the war. Other Bolsheviks proposed smooth modernization and development. Why did Stalin not accept intelligence reports about the war ... Because intelligence, without analyzing or checking the data, simply sent them to Stalin. Nooo who did not dare to analyze. Stalin demanded verification and evidence. Among the tons of such reports were real and misinformation, and speculation. And for some reason Stalin had to sack it. This is the work of intelligence and the General Staff, which they did not perform.

        I am not a historian, not a politician, not a shtirlits. Something is memorable. something is not. I try to keep abreast of what is happening and the past. The grandson and granddaughter will begin to ask, but I have to say how it really was. An article two years ago on the internet, I hardly remember the source. The article was a great one. No one expressed doubts in the comments.
        He recalled, it was mentioned that Stalin was told 47 times the exact date the war began.

In politics, pragmatism, only Stalin is ordered, and the so-called west, free from conscience, was allowed to trade with the Reich right up to 1944, and that no one is indignant from Wednesday-A) those who do not know the question; B) from among the potential fifth column.

              There were investigations by the American commission after the war on cooperation with Hitler of American firms - something was mentioned there about 300 firms with very sickly supplies, everything and everything, including bearings through Switzerland.
              But then the Cold War began and they quickly forgot about it ....
              just an example of "neutrality" -
              “The vaunted neutral Switzerland made watches for both Hitler and the countries of the anti-Hitler coalition. Money is everything. Some Swiss companies have not chastically put their name (for example, International Watch Co. (IWC) on watches made for Germany or coming up with non-existent brands, some (for example, Zenith, Longines, Doxa) wrote their real name without hesitation. All military watches for which the Wehrmacht were made only on reliable anchor-type mechanisms with a shockproof balance axis device.
              The cases were made round, with a diameter of 32-36 mm, provided increased protection against dust and moisture, often from magnetic fields. Sometimes the mechanism was placed on an additional shockproof damping insert.
              The watch for the German land forces was marked with the stamp DH (Deutsches Heer), KM for submariners, Kriegsmarine, “FL” means Fliegnummer, i.e. belonging to aviation equipment, DU (employee hours of the Reich employee).
              Many well-known Swiss companies tried not to put their name on the dial, and most often signed products with unknown, invented brands. Some companies (for example, Omega) did not take a German order at all, and produced watches only for the British army. In contrast to Omega, Longines manufactures timepieces for both the UK and Germany.
              At the beginning of World War II, Germany ordered lots of watches for its officers in a rather expensive design. Steel case, especially high-quality mechanism, high level of finish and performance. Such steel watches were supplied by Zenith, Longines and Doxa. Later, when the financial possibilities of the Third Reich were pretty exhausted, Zenith supplied watches in brass chrome cases. At the same time, the back cover was always steel, screwed, and contained the hallmark with the number.
              Here is a complete list of brands that supplied military timepieces for Germany: Acacia, Alpina, Arcadia, Arsa (now Auguste Reymond), Bielco, Bulla, Buren, BWC, Choisi, Civitas, Cronos, Dogma, Emco, ERA, Ercules, Etanche , Felco, Flora, Freco, Gala, Glycine, Grana, Gustonia, Hado, Helios, Helma, Helvetia, Leonidas, Longines, Madix, Milex, Mimo, Minerva, Moeris, Monitor, Mulco, Nisus, Page, Onda, OPE, Para "Phenix, Pierpont, Pronto, Record, Recta, Revue (now Revue Thommen), Siegerin, Silvana, Stabila, Stowa, Syntakt, Thiel, Titus, Tritona, Wagner, Zenith, Zentra."

    What would happen if the USSR made an alliance with Germany in 1940?

    Conventional weapons bombing since the beginning of the 40s and atomic bombing since 1945. Then the end of socialism in 1945-46.

    3-4 bombs of 15-20 kilotons each could by no means be brought to the end of socialism. And the USSR at that time had a multimillion-dollar army with gigantic combat experience, a war-tuned industry, and such a seemingly intangible thing as a winner’s syndrome — the habit of winning. the result would be the opposite - the whole continent would become socialist and Stalinist.
    Until the late 50s, the United States had neither enough nuclear warheads, nor carriers that could effectively use them to somehow get an advantage. After they received it (a sufficient number of B-52s), it turned out that the USSR already had enough warheads and carriers capable of inflicting damage on the United States in the opinion of the US leadership, and by the 70s the USSR and the USA reached parity in strategic nuclear weapons.
    And if we assume that Stalin would get along with Hitler (this is completely impossible, ideology would not allow this, neither to Hitler nor Stalin), then the United States would not get involved in Europe at all, but would engage in the Western Hemisphere according to the Monroe Doctrine. In an extreme case, they would begin to pick up colonies, especially in Africa, left over from England and France occupied by the Continental Alliance. hi

    Such nonsense is even too lazy to comment. If grandmother had a member, she would be a grandfather.

    Curious but no more. You can draw a dozen more scenarios of this kind.

    Drunk nonsense, not an article. Purely pro-American propaganda.

    And did it really need the USSR to seriously quarrel with the USA and the BI for Germany?

    Where does the information about Hitler's proposal to Stalin come from? Are you, by any chance, not a fan of Rezun-Suvorov?
