On this day 66 years ago, Hitler did the world a favor and took his own life. Unfortunately, he should have done it in 1923 and saved the world upwards of 100,000,000 dead while he pursued his ambition of being a great war leader and genocide.

It would take another four months for the Allies to force Imperial Japan to do the same thing.
