IF Hitler had surrendered and handed himself in to the allies, would he have been treated far worse than Gaddafi was by the militia ?

i.e would the jews have lynched him in public or would the allies have given him a trial where he'd be found guilty of being a war criminal etc ?

its compelling to 'wonder' what if he hadn't taken his life and had given himself in to the allied forces.  after all, the Russians were within 'a thousand yards' from his bunker or compound or w/e he was staying and hiding. 

what was it he saw in the world of that time that he did not like and did not agree with so much ?  so much so that he wanted to invade country after country 'cleansing' each as he'd have put it ?

something triggered him and I wonder what.    who were his foes in the world ? capalists ? socialists ? liberalists ? marxists ? communists ? who ?

    most likely he would have been interrogated (possibly tortured) about information regarding other nazis and then he would have been hanged along with other high ranking nazi officers for war crimes and crimes against humanity

    He and Charles Manson would’ve shared a bunk. Then Geraldo Rivera would have interviewed both of them and ask them how their sex life was?

    The Jews, child?  The Soviets would have had him, and they certainly would have tried, convicted, and likely esxecuted him, considering the massive suffering he had inflicted upon the Soviet Union.

    He could have Unconditionally surrendered Germany entirely to Britain and the US before the Soviets invaded if he wanted to. A lot of former Nazis got top positions in NATO.

    We know what would have happened, we only have to look at what happened to other Nazi leaders who surrendered or were captured.
