I'm no physicist

Alternative history buffs like to speculate on the Nazis winning WWII - Talk about a negative view!
Recently I was reading a biography of Max Planck, the famous German scientist who won the Nobel Prize for his work in Quantum Mechanics
- Both his theories and Einstein's Relativity are probably the most significant discoveries of the 20th Century in physics.
What many probably don't know is that Planck's son was killed in one of the attempts to assassinate Hitler during WWII.
Got me thinking - How different history would be if one of these attempts on Hitler's life had succeeded before the end of WWII.
In my opinion Germany would have immediately looked for an end to the war, especially after it became apparent that they would lose,
offered to give back whatever lands they had conquered and put all the blame on Hitler - saying it wasn't us it was all his fault
- Blamed all the war crimes on Hitler and this may have been accepted and Germany would still have maintained itself as a world power.
What do you think - What would have happened if one of the attempts to assasinate Hitler had succeded
