comment How long did it take for a diplomat to travel between Berlin and Vienna in the 1770's?
@FelixGoldberg Good point, I heard that too about plenipotentiary powers. But in this case, the Wikipedia article specifically said that "diplomats traveled between capitals to resolve their monarchs' complaints", so I guess in this case travel was necessary

comment Why, in the US, is Japanese brutality ignored compared with the Nazi brutality in WW2?
Maybe it's a cultural thing. Much of Nazi victims are Europeans with western culture (including European Jews), and Americans identify better with them compared to Chinese and South-East Asians who became the victims of the Japanese. I'm sure the opposite is true, Japanese brutality would be more prominent than the German in Chinese education

comment What were the Allies' plans for if they caught Hitler alive?
Other high-ranking Nazi leaders who were captured alive were tried in war crime tribunals.. Maybe this is what they would have done to him too
