Re: Wasn't this handled last time?

Part of the reason why the Axis powers didn't surrender until they did is because unconditional surrender on the scale of great powers is absurd; we only consider it otherwise because the Allies were willing to throw millions of extra lives into the grinder to achieve it and we like to pretend we came out smelling like roses. Especially after Italy got a deal, there was no logical reason at the time to assume the Allies couldn't be brought to the negotiating table.
