I started to write out some shit but after a while I realized every scenario I can come up with is basically just WWII but different, like if Hitler just doesn't invade Poland and everybody backs off from that Japan was already in China and that would have probably lead to some sort of capitalist gang bang of the Soviet Union if they hadn't gone to war with the allies first, basically in every scenario that doesn't involve Germany declaring war on the whole world the whole world probably declares war on Russia, and that ends with millions dead in total industrial warfare then permanent stalemate and global partition until one side economically collapses as soon as nuclear weapons are invented, that or humanity goes extinct in the 40's
So I guess you have to look further back and say WWI never happened, and while it wasn't as inevitable as people tend to make out that web of alliances and balance of power politics that turned a crisis into a world war goes back 500 years, someone's gonna declare war on someone, and if Russia is one of those someone's they're gonna have a revolution and then wow it just keeps happening
So I guess you go back to Napoleon? The last time the great power structure of Europe was about to rewritten, that's how far back you have to go to make something more less equivalent to WW2 and the cold war not inevitable.

So I guess there's your answer OP, how would the world look if WW2 never happened? Napoleon would have won.

Likely would've just happened a different way. Between China's civil war and the Japanese conflicts around Asia, along with Soviet ambition, conflict was inevitable. Say if Hitler lost steam or became an artist instead of a murderer, I betcha the western world would unite against the USSR. Maybe Japan would have a change of heart and ally with Russia to take a little pressure off of the inland front. If they took their traditional stance and pounded Russia, maybe China would still have a chance. SEA just depends on the timeline, but imperial Japan just wanted as much land as possible, as did the Nazis and ISSR. Maybe it would be a race to hunt down Stalin, followed with a Japanese-Western conflict.

This is an interesting idea but I wish you could frame it better. Are you saying as in the Nazis never come to power? Or that the outcome of WWI didn't lead to the fall of the Kaiser?

In some ways it very much defends on how much the Versailles treaty is enforced... If before the 30s, say, certain provisions were eased etc etc. You're talking about possibly a very different outcome where maybe German politics is stable throughtout the 20s and 30s as a Republic, but maybe with less Nazi'ism and more Communism as the "extreme" ideology present in the country.

If you're talking about a situation where Germany consolidated it's continental gains before 1939 and never invaded Poland I think that's an interesting question of whether Hitler could have ever "existed in the peace." His personality, among other things, drove a lot of that decision making. And in a lot of ways that ideology is apocalyptic in nature and has a constant need for an enemy. So it's hard to say if you could have ever had a "peaceful" nazi germany. That seems to me to be a contradiction in itself.
