It might be that Germany would have won the war.
Think about it; the only thing that ever held Hitler back was Hitler himself. He was notoriously single-minded, his list of successes in war in the short-term was what colored his war policy in the long-term.
He never took into account what would happen if the war was protracted and his hunger for land acquisition via invasion was unquenchable.
He had PLENTY of "True Believer" generals to replace him and that was the original goal. To replace him with someone who could more sanely manage the war. There were no saints among the upper echelons of the 3rd Reich.
Cool thread dude. I always enjoy thinking about what might have happened "if".
the brittish had a " kill hitler plot " - that was cancelled - due to the fear that a more competent leader would rise

To answer your question it depends on when you do it. Early on removing Hitler would have ended the war. By 1942 however removing him would have prolonged the fighting alot to be said for the damage he did thinking he was a military genius.
