What if Hitler had pursued a military career?

What if Hitler had pursued a military career? If he had been an able commander in WWI instead of the negative reviews that he got from his superiors on being unfit to command.

Didn't he actually pursue a military career after WWI? Maybe someone out there who knows a lot about Hitler's early life can tell me if I'm right or wrong on this. Wasn't he on an assignment for the military when he attended his first Nazi meeting?

Hitler only got to the rank of Corporal. What if he had been able to achieve a higher rank and was a capable commander?

Impossible question to answer, at least briefly! That's like saying, what if Hitler was Napoleon and Napoleon was Hitler?

Make Hitler a colonel in WWI instead of a corporal, and Hitler isn't Hitler anymore!
